Theme and graphics
This time, Microgaming decided to go back to the roots and released a stunning retro game. Bellissimo can be recommended to all those who are tired of the excessive pomp of modern 3D slots. It’s a classic game, with the reels on the left side of the screen and the payout table on the right. In the background you also see a chef holding a pizza and the game logo. There’s also a great soundtrack, which will make you want to play more and more all the time. Both the soundtrack and the sound effects can be turned off by clicking on the horn icon in the upper right corner. Bellissimo has very simple but also very nice 2D graphics. The slot loads instantly and doesn’t require any software other than a web browser to play. Belissimo has a fairly high variance, so it’s best suited to experienced gamblers looking to take a break from the boring 3D slots of today.
Special symbols and Paylines
There are 5 win lines in Bellissimo, giving you plenty of opportunities to win on every spin. To get paid you’ll need to catch 3 symbols in one of the lines.
In order to increase the amount of credits on the balance, the user needs to collect a combination of 3 of the same symbol. A winning sequence is considered to be the sequence in which the pictures are located on the same active line without any gaps. One of the symbols must be on the first reel.
There are four basic symbols and one special symbol. The main pictures form sequences on standard conditions. For each of them the user is rewarded in accordance with the paytable:
• 3 images of sevens on one active line bring the player 80 coins;
• a triple “Bar” icon – 60;
• double “Bar” icon – 40;
• single “Bar” – 10;
• three different “Bar” signs – 4.
If after one spin there are several winning combinations, the rewards for them are added up and credited to the player’s balance. To calculate the amount of winnings in credits, you need to multiply the number of coins won by the set denomination.
The chef is the wild symbol of the slot. This picture creates the highest paying combinations. The winnings of the user directly depends on what line it has formed. If the sequence of three chefs formed on the first line, the reward user will make 1,000 coins. If the second – 1,500, on the third – 2,000, on the fourth – 2,500, and the fifth – 5,000 virtual coins.
In addition to the fact that the wild symbol gives payments for their own combinations, it also creates new ones. “The wild symbol can replace any missing picture to complete the sequence.
While Belissimo has interesting gameplay and can keep you engrossed for hours, this game doesn’t have any individual bonuses – it’s pretty straightforward. And because the symbols can fall between the paylines, this slot has a fairly high variance, which can put off inexperienced players. As there are no free spins in Belissimo, there are no ‘Scatter’ or ‘Free Spins’ symbols. However, a Wild, represented by the chef, is waiting for you. He replaces all other icons in the game, which will help you with winning combinations. The most interesting aspect of this game is the 5000 coin jackpot. It can be won by catching 3 chef symbols on all lines while playing at the maximum bet.
