Secret Romance is a 5 reel, 15 payline slot powered by Microgaming. With a love theme, the game can be played from 15p to £15 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. This simple game benefits from Mystery Symbols and a Free Spins feature.

It has a timeless theme of romantic love where you can slip into something comfortable and relax. Visually, it’s very purple with symbols on the reels such as regular playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10), rose hearts, perfume bottles, roses, gemstone rings and masks. The Secret Romance heart is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.

In the base game, look out for the Mystery Symbols feature – Mystery Symbols open to reveal a randomly chosen symbol except for the wild. These Mystery Symbols are stacked in the base game and can give you a full screen of scatters! This would result in a cool 1,200 times your line stake as well as triggering the Free Spins feature.

All you need though is 3 scatters which will give you 14 free spins and a 2x multiplier. Mystery Symbols also appear here but they are super stacked (up to 20 symbols high) to give you bigger wins. Furthermore, Mystery Symbols can reveal wild symbols for even bigger wins.

Every time you get 3 or more scatters during the feature, the free spins multiplier increases by 1 – it can go up to 5x. The only downside is that you can cannot retrigger the feature.

Secret Romance is quite a simple slot really with the bigger wins coming in the Free Spins feature – this is due to the Mystery Symbols possibly revealing wilds and increasing the multiplier up to 5x. It’s a medium variance title with potential wins of up to 6,000 times your stake in the feature (with the 5x multiplier of course).

It’s not one of Microgaming’s best slots by any stretch of the imagination but a decent one – that’s it though. I would much rather play favourites such as Immortal Romance or Tarzan.
