Fat Lady Sings Slots

Fat-Lady-SingsWith Fat Lady Sings, the player will find that he’s getting an Opera themed game, a colorful and highly enjoyable slot machine which was designed by Microgaming. The Opera has been an inspiration to designers in the past, though not for too many of them. The main character in this case is quite literally a fat lady that sings, a leading Opera Singer.

It’s a rich game, not just when it comes to graphics, but also because of the many features introduced by it, like the free spins with multipliers, the wild symbol or the scatter. It’s a game with 25 paylines and 5 reels, plus payouts of up to $3,750.

Features of Fat Lady Sings

A bonus feature, scatter symbols, free spins, wilds and multipliers of up to 5x, these are features that Fat Lady Sings offers, and you will want to take advantage of them while you play this game.

To start with, we have a feature that is the most popular in modern slot machines, the wild symbol. It’s available in 90% of the slot machines offered today, and as always it will substitute for the other symbols, as long as its interference results in the formation of a new paying combo. The one symbol that doesn’t get help from the wild is the scatter, since it doesn’t form regular combinations. The wild symbol becomes even more useful when the free spins are running, but more on that below.


When the wild manages to appear on a payline multiple times, and starting from the leftmost reel, it will form a combo and award a payout that is much better than what other regular icons can give you. The 3,000 jackpot is actually awarded by the wild.

Free Games Feature

The free spins are mixed with a bonus feature, but the requirement to get them started is the same one, the presence on the reels of 3 to 5 symbols with Masks.

Three Masks, in whatever random locations they appear in, will get you a bonus win of 5 to 30x, between 5 and 15 free spins and a multiplier that is anywhere in the 1x to 5x range.

With four Masks, the reward consists in 5 to 20 spins, the same 1x to 5x multipliers and bonus wins of 20 to 70x.

Finally, with the maximum number of five Masks, you get 9 to 30 free spins, up to 5x multipliers and 70 to 120x bonus prizes.

While the free spins are running, getting three to five Masks will give you 15x to 100x prizes, multiplying the round’s total bet. These spins also have additional wild symbols, and on the 2nd and 4th reels these wilds come in stacked.

Betting options and jackpots

Line bets use 1 to 5 coins, and their denominations reach a maximum of $0.25, so the total is $1.25. With 25 lines in the game, the maximum bet is at $31.25. You can select as many lines as you want though, and you can also use fewer coins.

Fat Lady Sings gives you payouts of up to 3,000x, meaning 15,000 coins or $3,750.

Design and symbols

The Opera theme that they’ve gone for in this case brings with it plenty of colors and a decent enough drawing style for the characters, but it also has playing cards, and they tend to appear often on the screen. They’ve at least decorated them and made them look like they’re in the middle of a forest or a bush, but they still don’t look quite right in an Opera themed title. Other than that, it’s an attractive slot machine, just not as Opera themed as it should’ve been.


Symbols: Masks (scatter), Fat Lady Sings Logo (3,000x, wild), Viking Lady (1,000x), Chinese Lady (500x), Medieval Lady (300x), Ace (200x), King (150x), Queen (100x) and Jack (100x).

Is It Worth Playing?

The Opera theme isn’t for everyone, but then again that’s true about most slot themes. If you’re a fan, or you simply want a game with pretty graphics, Fat Lady Sings could be a good game for you.

Fat Lady Sings can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
