Love and Money Slots

Love-and-MoneyFor Love and Money is a slot machine created by Rival’s developers, a title that brings forward a theme that resembles the works of Shakespeare, with money and love being both at the center of the problem. There is the usual love story, but there are also heartless villains for which money is much more important. It’s an interesting theme, but the design is one of the worst I’ve seen at Rival. It’s not just that the game has about a decade since it was first released, it’s mostly the design style that was chosen, which was never a good looking one, no matter in what year it was used.

With 15 lines, Love and Money doesn’t have a very low number of paylines, but it’s not above average either, not even for Rival Gaming. Still, it’s a 5 reel title, and it has free spins, scatters, multipliers and wilds, so you can safely call it a game in the modern slot category. You will walk away with up to $12,500 in prizes from it.

Features of Love and Money

As the major features it brings forward, you will discover the presence of wild symbols, of scatters that can get you free spins and of multipliers.

The wild symbol is the one that is most profitable, as they can substitute for other symbols, which would allow them to form combinations that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. The wild symbol multiplies all wins it contributes to by two, so it doubles payouts as well. When the wild manages to appear on the same line multiple times, starting from the left, it forms its own combinations. It can award the game’s biggest prize this way, at 5,000x the line bet.

Free Games Feature

The scatter symbol is represented by Cupid, aiming towards someone with his bow and arrow. Appearing in random locations on the reels, all you need is at least three scatter symbols, to get the 10 free spins. You are also awarded bigger prizes, as the 3x multiplier helps out with every single win you get.


The scatter symbol has a second role here, which is that of a trigger for some very interesting cash prizes. Three to five scatters on the reels gets you 2x to 100x the round wager as a prize.

Betting options and jackpots

The line wager is typical for Rival, at $2.50 per line, though in this case it is composed out of 5 coins of $0.50 each. If you have to, the line wager can be reduced in value by changing the denomination, the minimum being $0.01, or by using fewer coins. The maximum wager is at $37.50.

5,000x is the top jackpot advertised by the paytable, offering 25,000 coins or $12,500. It’s a good amount for Rival, even though most developers will do better than that.

Design and symbols

The design is the truly disturbing part about this slot. It’s not just that it’s an old game, it’s the abstract style that was chosen when many of the characters were created, so they don’t look exactly right. They look somewhat deformed most of the time, so it’s hard to be happy when you look at them.

Symbols: Poet (wild, 5,000x) Cupid (scatter, 100x the wager), Rich Man (1,000x), Romantic Man (400x), Love Interest (400x), Pauper (200x), Odd Couple (150x), Rose (125x), Love Birds (100x), Love Letter (100x), Chocolates (90x) and Candle (90x).


Is It Worth Playing?

I’d stay away from it, but it’s mostly because of the design and the reaction I get to it. If you’re less inclined to ignore an ugly slot machine, you might as well give it a chance and see if it makes up for it with luck.

This Love and Money slot is offered by all online casinos with Rival software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
