The old Greek tale of the gods of love is brought to life in this mobile Bally slot. Though possibly they need to brush up on their mythology.
In the old tale of old Cupid was the son of the goddess of love who fell in love with the mortal Psyche. Translate that to our Cupid & Psyche mobile slot and you have a baby cherub falling in love with a black haired goth princess. At best it’s a misconstrued slot, at worst, we have to wonder at the ethics of the designer in question.
However, other than the Greek slot theme gone wrong, this game plays well on every device we tested and despite the low return to player rate of 93.91%, we still had fun. Yes we start with all the terrible things in order to try and explain our thoughts behind our rating so you don’t open the slot and close it immediately.
This machine is not complicated. You’ll be looking for two things; the stacked wilds on the five reels which come often enough to help keep your balance topped up. Don’t forget, this mobile slot game is fairly low variance, so the big wins will come when you hit several five of a kind symbols over the 40 paylines and with several reels covered in stacked wilds. We’ve happily hit 100 times our bet several times to know this is possible, though obviously, not that frequent.
The big wins lie in the free spins. You’ll have to read our bonus features section below to get the full explanation, but needless to say, you can get up to 25x multiplier. Generally you’ll be happy with 3. AND you can fill all five reels covered in sticky wilds. Though generally you’ll get about reel 3, 4 and 5 fully covered by the end of your 12 free spins.
It means that despite paying out fairly frequently and helping the casual gambler keep a healthy wallet and despite so many of the symbols not paying very much at all, there is actually a few hopes for some decent wins when playing Cupid & Psyche slot game on your mobile.
So even the bigger gamblers can seeks some high thrill wins in the hope of chasing that 25x multiplier. Not an easy chase, but all’s fair in love and war as they say.

Stacked Wilds: Psyche herself is the wild symbol and she rarely comes alone, often arriving stacked across the reels. She generally helps keep your budget balanced, but can also bring some decent big wins when you least expect it.
Scatters and Free Spins: The bulls eye is the scatter symbol and how many you get will not affect the amount of free spins you get, but the multiplier attached to the free spins.
A 10x multiplier is eye watering enough, without adding that oh so tempting 25x multiplier.
But it doesn't stop there. You have a bullseye bar at the top of this slots five reels with the free spins, and every time you collect four of those symbols, the reels will turn wild from right to left and remain there for the whole of the free spin round.
We rarely managed to get more than 3 wild reels, and at that, the last 3rd center reel turn wild only for one or two spins. Still, with those multipliers and more than enough chances for 5 of a kind win over 40 paylines, you can soon see why we like our odds in this game.
If you can overlook the age difference between the lover and the substandard graphics, Cupid & Pysche video slot is actually quite good fun.
Those stacked wilds come often to give you decent thrill when they arrive and the free spins give you hope of winning more than just your bank-roll back.
