Hearts Desire Slot Review
I’m going to sound like the Grinch, but Valentine’s Day is a money-making scheme, just like Christmas.
In the US alone, some 145 million greeting cards will be bought and sent on V-Day. And that figure goes up to 1 billion worldwide. And in the US, because y’all love your sweet things, Valentine’s Day rakes in $1 million in chocolate sales on top of that.
This year, instead of blowing my money, I’m gonna make me some. A whole bunch in fact, if Hearts Desire slot from Betsoft Gaming lives up to expectation.
While this ain’t no Betty Bonkers slot (the best-looking fruit slot, ever), Hearts Desire slot is quite a thing to behold.
The background is teeming with jellyfish-like hearts floating around in the pink ether. Now that might not sound too inviting, but the design is really very good. And this is a Valentine’s Day-themed game after all, so we need to cut Betsoft some slack.
The game looks good in either orientation, making it a sweet option for those of you who like to play slots wherever the hell you damn well choose! In classic fruity style, you’ll see diamonds, sevens, oranges, bananas, grapes, watermelons, and cherries on the reels.
There are also some progressive Jackpots on offer here, but I’m jumping the gun – we’ll get to that in a moment.
This 30-payline game offers an RTP of 96.13% and a high volatility rate. Unfortunately, the max win isn’t as good as I expected, but the €171,552 on offer is still nothing to sneeze at. I’ll happily take it if you don’t want it.
You can play with your chosen fiat, so long as it’s not Japanese yen – or go with crypto. It’s entirely up to you.
Wilds can appear on reels 2 to 5, replacing all symbols except the golden heart and pink diamond Scatters.
Pink hearts are special Scatters and only reveal themselves during the Free Spins round. Each win value is added to a meter, and additionally, pink hearts can carry a multiplier value of 2x, 3x, or 5x.
The golden heart Scatters can appear on all 5 reels, and when you land 5 of them, they’ll trigger 5 Free Spins. Before that happens, though, their cumulative values are added to a meter.
Landing additional golden heart Scatters adds to the meter and you’ll score an extra spin for each one you land.
STACKED MYSTERY SYMBOLS:
Each reel can host a stacked Mystery symbol that will be chosen randomly. If multiple stacked symbols appear on the reels, they’ll inevitably be of the same symbol.
You won’t need to land Scatters or other symbols to trigger the Progressive Jackpot – it randomly happens all on its own.
So, here’s the clincher: your chances of landing a Jackpot increase with the size of your bets. There are 4 Jackpots you could win: the Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega.
The performance on Hearts Desire slot was perfect. I didn’t have a single case of freezing, buffering, or any other hassles.
The math works like this: bring in the max multiplier of 1,787x while betting at the maximum of €96, and you’ll be walking away with €171,552 in winnings. Or you can start betting from €0.30.
Hearts Desire slot is alright. And I don’t mean that in a derogatory way – it’s based on solid stats, and you can take it on the go with you. It’s not a complicated game, but it’s not meant to be; it does exactly what it was designed to do.
I’d guess that its target audience is more of the female persuasion, but if you’re looking to get in touch with your femininity, then give it a whirl! Who am I to judge?
