The Love Guru Slot Machine
The Love Guru is a romantic comedy produced by Paramount Pictures in 2008. The movie starred Mike Myers as an American raised outside of the U.S. by gurus returning to break into the self-help business. His first task is to help a star hockey player with his romantic troubles after his wife left him for a rival athlete and as you might expect with any Mike Myers film, the outcome is very funny.
The slot takes many aspects of the film onto the reels. You’ll find a number of characters from the film on the reels including Dick Pants (John Oliver), Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco), Coach Punch Cherkov (Verne Troyer) and Guru Tugginmypudha (Ben Kingsley). Somewhat strangely the principal character of the film played by Mike Myers doesn’t actually appear on the reels. The reels are set in a psychedelic purple frame and the non-character symbols are bright and bold, making the slot very easy on the eye. Usually when playing a movie based slot, you’ll have part of the soundtrack playing throughout; however the standard game features just the clunking sound of the reels.
Setup and Play for The Love Guru Slot
Like the vast majority of iSoftbet slots you’ll find five reels when playing. There are 30 win lines, but clicking the lines button can reduce this number as low as just one line. Other options you’ll have are the coin value and the line bet amount, a combination of which will give you the total stake for each spin.
The slot works by landing three or more consecutive symbols in a row on a win line, with the film characters being the top paying symbols. This is led by the ‘Guru Pitka’ symbol which pays 1,000 coins (this is the Mike Myers character, so the symbol is in words as opposed to the picture) for five in a row, with the other symbols named earlier paying between 800 and 300 coins for five in a row. The playing card symbols from 9 to Ace complete the reels. The auto spin option allows the game to play without interruption until either a feature is landed or you hit the ‘stop auto spin’ button.
The wild symbol is the elephant and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the bonus and the ‘Love Guru’ symbols. The wild symbol is most useful in the feature round.
The Love Guru Slot Features
This slot has two distinct features, both of which are activated in the same way by landing the appropriate scatter symbols three or more times across the reels.
The first scatter is the ‘The Love Guru’ title symbol. Landing this symbol three or more times will give an instant prize. It would be fair to say this isn’t the most exciting feature, but you’ll soon get over the lack of excitement when the cash prize comes your way.
The second scatter is the bonus symbol. This leads to the more enjoyable bonus feature of the two. You’ll be taken to another screen where you’ll find a dozen different boxes. This is a pick-em round where each box will uncover either a number of free spins or a win amount. At this point you can actually win up 15,000 coins even without the free spins taking place. The number of spins you can earn is a maximum of 20. During these spins, you’ll find that if the wild symbol appears on the middle reel, it will become extended to cover the entire reel. Not only this, but this wild reel will remain in place throughout the feature.
The Love Guru Slot Conclusion
When it comes to gameplay, the slot does have a good range of features, but it has to be said that the features can be a little hard to come by, the wait being slightly longer than you’d find at other games. The bonus feature however is worth the wait and is the one high point for the slot. Overall this slot by iSoftbet is a little disappointing which is somewhat surprising for a slot with a film tie-in, although fans of the film might enjoy the game more than most.
