Sunday Afternoon Classics Slots

Sunday-Afternoon-ClassicsSunday Afternoon Classics is a game designed by Cryptologic. This slot machine is themed around classic movies, meaning the kinds that are based on books like those written by Jane Austen or titles like Gone with the wind. Based on the images used inside, the action revolves around a couple that is in love, him an officer that comes back from the war, her being rich and living in a big white house. Not the kind of theme that everyone will enjoy, but it could work for anyone that enjoys a good romantic movie.

The 5 reels and 25 lines of Sunday Afternoon Classics give you a chance to win either the big $120,000 jackpot or one of the Movie Mayhem progressive jackpots that are available to its players. A range of good features makes sure that even the pickiest players will find it a good choice, finding inside wild symbols, multipliers, free games and scatter symbols.

Features of Sunday Afternoon Classics

You get all the usual features in Sunday Afternoon Classics, so it didn’t miss anything major. That means that you have the free spins with multipliers, along with the scatter symbol and the wild.

The Lady wild might not seem like a very good choice when it comes to representing the most adaptable and valuable symbol of the slot, but that’s the image they went with. The Lady can substitute for a regular symbol, if by doing so it can help create a new combination and get you a payout that normally wouldn’t have been possible. It gets better though, with the wild always applying a 3x multiplier to payouts awarded with its help. You’re going to find that this power of the wild can be applied to any regular symbol, with the exception of a scatter. With multiple Lady icons on a single payline, a regular combo gets formed by this wild and it awards the slot’s best payouts this way.

The Embrace symbol, as they describe it, is the scatter feature of Sunday Afternoon Classics. Its ability to give away prizes by taking into account all the symbols that are on the reels, in any position, makes it a valuable addition to any slot. In this case, the instant prizes will go up to 100x the triggering wager, but that’s not all you’re getting from it.


Free Games Feature

The other effect of getting multiple scatter symbols (3+), is the free games feature that gets started this way. This feature consists in 10 free spins, all of them with tripled prizes (there is a 3x multiplier involved). Retriggering the free games is possible, the trigger being the same one as before (3+ Embrace scatters).

Betting options and jackpots

The coins of the game will go up to $20 in value, a rather big amount that gets the maximum wager as high as $500, with 25 coins used in it. The lowest coin denomination you can go for is $0.01, but there are also plenty of choices to be made between the two extremes.

There are 6,000 coins on the line, for the player that gets the best combination available inside, the one with five Lady wilds on the same active bet line. It can turn into $120,000 cash, provided that you’ve used the right wager for it.

It doesn’t stop there though. There are also four progressive jackpots, part of the Movie Mayhem series, with the chance of winning one being better if your wager is larger. You get six items and you have to pick movie tickets, and then how many tickets you have determines the jackpot you win (1 being the lowest paying jackpot, while 4 is the highest).

Design and symbols

It has the right kind of design for the theme chosen for it, elegant and using marble statues, fields with red roses, a pink and yellow sky, and I didn’t even get to the symbols yet. They’re just as elegant as the background area, and it does look like a classic romance novel, from beginning to end. The playing cards have their own little decorations that make them look almost aristocratic.

Symbols: Lady (wild, 6,000 coins), Embrace (scatter, 100 times the bet), Officer on horse (1,000 coins), Manor (500 coins), Locket (200 coins), Pink Rose (200 coins), Ace (175 coins), King (175 coins), Queen (150 coins), Jack (150 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

Not everyone will appreciate the romantic nature of the game, but many will love it for exactly that reason. Add to that some impressive prizes and a good range of features, and you have a game that you can have fun with.
