This is a Valentine-themed game offering players a max win of up to 500x their stake. Whole Lotta Love can be played on all devices from €0.10 to €200 per spin and is considered a medium volatility game.
There are quite some features available in Whole Lotta Love, in fact, a total of 4 bonus features. Each of these gives you the chance of winning cash prizes while the Jackpot King Deluxe bonus feature offers progressive jackpots. There is also a wild symbol in play as well as a scatter symbol.
As mentioned already, you will find a total of 4 different bonus features in this slot, making sure there is plenty going on. You have the Mystery Win, Cupid's Trail, Big Money and finally the Jackpot King Deluxe bonus features. Then there is the wild symbol and scatter symbol on top of these.
Mystery Win Bonus Feature
This first feature of the slot will be triggered when you land 3 or more of the safe scatter symbols anywhere on the reel set. After this happens, you will be asked to choose 1 of the triggering scatter symbols, which will then reveal a multiplier to you. This multiplier will be applied to your total stake and give you your cash prize.
Cupid's Trail Bonus Feature
Just as in the Mystery Win Bonus Feature, this bonus feature will be activated when you land 3 or more of the cupid scatter symbols anywhere on the reel set during the main game. The first step of this feature is a multiplier leading up to the Gate of Olympus and up to the Big Money Bonus feature which is the second stage.
During the first stage of the feature you will be asked to pick from hearts to move along the trail and the further along you get, the bigger prizes you can look forward to winning. Should you end up revealing a “Collect”, then the feature will come to an end, however if you reveal a “Love Dash” then Cupid will move along the trail even quicker than normal. Should you manage to make it all the way to the end of the trail, you will move on to the second stage which is the Big Money Bonus Feature explained below.
Big Money Bonus Feature
There are 2 different ways you can trigger the Big Money Bonus Feature. The first one is getting to it through the Cupid's Trail Bonus Feature as explained above. The second way is by landing 3 Big Money Bonus scatters on the 3 middle reels during the main game.
Once this feature has been triggered, the Cash Clouds will start spinning and will stop to give you a multiplier. After this you will be asked to select a heart that will allow you to get a re-spin and win even more prizes or end the feature. During this feature you will be able to win up to a maximum of 500x your total stake.
Jackpot King Deluxe Bonus Feature
This slot is a part of the Jackpot King network, meaning you will be able to win a progressive jackpot completely randomly. During any of your spins, 5 Jackpot King Deluxe overlay symbols could land on reels 1 to 5. After this happens, you will then spin the reels in order to collect crown symbols, because the more of them you get, the bigger the prize would be.
Should you be able to collect a total of 15 of these symbols, you will then enter the Wheel King section which will allow you a spin on the wheel. There, you might reveal a stake multiplier, the Regal Pot, Royal Pot or Jackpot King progressive jackpot. These jackpots are not shared between casinos, meaning they can vary from casino to casino.
Design and Symbols
As you might have guessed already, Whole Lotta Love is a slot that is all about romance, Valentine's Day, Cupid and everything else you can think of that relates to cute and pink romance. You will find yourself up in heaven surrounded by white, fluffy clouds during a bonus feature but with the main game giving you a slightly more Greek theme with the reel set surrounded by white marble columns and framed in gold. Blueprint Gaming have made sure they haven't gone overboard in cheesiness and have kept the whole look of the slot pretty toned down.
In fact, they have toned it down a little too much, especially when it comes to the symbols on the reel set. They have of course gone for the standard card suits as the low-value symbols, meaning you will be seeing 10, J, Q, K and A on the reels in different colours. Other symbols you will be seeing on the reels include the Whole Lotta Love logo, which is in fact the only high-value symbol. This will be paying 12.5x your total stake for five of a kind.
The special symbols of the game consist of a wild symbol which is in the shape of a heart and has the ability of substituting all other regular symbols on the reels. There is also a total of 3 scatter symbols. One will be showing a safe and will trigger the Mystery Win feature. Another will show Cupid himself and is the scatter that will trigger the Cupid's Trail feature while the last one shows Big Money Bonus and will trigger the feature with the same name.
Our Thoughts on Whole Lotta Love
While the whole romance theme usually isn't a big hit with us (as well as many other players out there), Blueprint Gaming have made sure of bringing a good dose of humour to the whole design and overall look of the slot. However, we are still left being a little disappointed by the lack of imagination, of course having to point out the standard symbols and only one high-value symbol on the reels. We can't help but imagine they could have done so much more with Whole Lotta Love.
There are however quite some bonus features going on in this slot, making it entertaining to play and making sure there is something happening every so often. Again however, we are missing a little something here, such as a free spins feature which always is a hit amongst players. Seeing the RTP is below average and there is a low maximum payout of just 500x your total bet, Whole Lotta Love won't be topping any lists with us.
