Hearts of Venice slot is all about being romantic in the city of Venice. The graphics and feel of the game reflect this, with lots of pastel colours and pick rose petals. The reels take up most of the screen, with only a tiny view of a canal and a street light visible behind them. The overall colours to Hearts of Venice slot are purple, pink and gold.

During the feature a romantic tune plays, otherwise the slot is silent if the reels are not spinning.
Romance is in the Air
All of the symbols in Hearts of Venice slot are theme based and have to do with either romance or the city of Venice itself. They have been designed to look like drawings with lots of detail and a realistic feel. Lower paying symbols include a hat, a rose, some rope and the poles that the gondolas are tied to. These will pay up to 500 coins at maximum bet for five of a kind. Mid paying symbols are a streetlamp, a bridge, a gondola and a flying lion statue. The top ranking symbols in Hearts of Venice slot are the obligatory gondolier and a pretty woman sniffing a rose.
The wild symbol is the games logo. This can be found on reels two, three four and five and will replace all other base game symbols. The wild is not worth anything as a symbol in its own right however.
Some of the symbols on the reels will appear covered with a pink heart. This heart will disappear when the reels settle, to reveal whichever symbol lies beneath them. This works kind of like wild symbol, with the revealed symbol usually forming a part of a winning combination with existing symbols on the reels.
