Enter into the world of the heroine from Victor Hugo’s celebrated The Hunchback of Notre Dame and you could find huge winnings thanks to numerous free spins and the chance to play for an enormous progressive jackpot.
Esmeralda is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and up to 25 paylines. The reels are set against a luxurious red background featuring curtains and roses. There are six high value symbols, two male characters, a tambourine, a guitar, jewel encrusted earrings and a necklace.
Esmeralda herself is the wild symbol and she can substitute for all the other symbols, except the scatter, to help and complete winning combinations.
The red rose is the scatter symbol and it offers scatter payouts of up to 30x the total bet for a spin.
The red rose scatter is the key to the free spins. You need to land at least eight of them to trigger the round, however, they land stacked so this is not too difficult. Landing eight scatters awards 15 free spins and this increases all the way up to 70 free spins for fifteen scatters.
The slot also offers a progressive jackpot. The jackpot is won by landing five wilds along a payline but you need to be playing with all paylines active. There are four different jackpots up for grabs and the one that you are playing for is determined by the size of your bet. Simply click on ‘Jackpot Info’ to find out about the jackpot levels.
There is also a gamble feature that can be used to try and double your winnings. You need to pick a card that you think is higher than the dealer’s card. If you are correct then your money is doubled and you can try again.
In addition to the progressive jackpot Esmeralda offers a top payout of 15,000x for landing five wilds when playing with less than 25 paylines. The two male characters can both payout up to 1,000x, the guitar and tambourine can payout up to 875x and the earrings and necklace can both payout up to 700x.
