Slots Review - From Russia With Love

Software Platform : Playtech


You would be forgiven for thinking that an online slot game entitled From Russia With Love might have a James Bond theme. However, that is not the case with this offering from Playtech. Instead it is Russian culture which is the theme for this particular slot. The symbols all have relevance to Russia with bottles of vodka, Russian dolls, Russian shoes and a Lute.

Many of the symbols on this slot game are animated which makes playing the slot a bit more eye-catching. The graphics are generally very good and the background music – a typical Russian tune – adds nicely to the ambience created by this slot game.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

From Russia With Love has 25 pay lines available to play which gives you a great chance of spinning in a win. As with most Playtech slots, budget is not an issue as there are plenty of betting options. You can adjust the number of coins you bet per line and also the value of those coins.

Wild Symbol

The all-important wild symbol on the From Russia With Love slot game is an onion. It appears on all five reels and can substitute for all of the other symbols to form winning combinations – apart from the bonus and scatter symbols.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

The scatter symbol pays out instant prizes if it appears at least three times across the reels. Three scatters in view will pay 5 times your total bet, four scatters pays 25 times your total bet and if you see five scatter symbols you will receive a prize of 250 times your total bet.

The bonus game at From Russia With Love is called the Matryoshka Bonus and is awarded when the Russian dolls symbol appears on reels 1 and 5. You get to choose one of a selection of Russian dolls and your selection equates to a certain number of free spins. If you don’t make a bonus ending selection, you are presented with another group of dolls to choose from. If you manage to make five choices without ending the bonus round then your free spins will come a x2 multiplier.


From Russia With Love with Love does not have a progressive jackpot up for grabs. Although this is mildly disappointing, there is still a generous fixed jackpot that can be won on any spin. If you get five consecutive wild symbols on one pay line then you get a prize of 10,000 times your line bet.
