While many young'uns today think that Michelangelo is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, the real Michelangelo was one of the world's greatest artists, who is known for creating some excellent sculptures and paintings during the Renaissance period. Some of Michelangelo's most popular works include the sculpture of David, the painting of the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and The Creation of Adam. High 5 Games has designed their Michelangelo slot in an homage of sorts to the classic artist, with the possibility of winning some big cash prizes.
Michelangelo is a 5 reel, 99 payline video slot that features various pieces of artwork from Michelangelo mixed with traditional slot symbols. The game's symbols are as follows (from low to high paying): Queen, King, Ace, female statue, God statue, David, and a letter "M", which is the high paying symbol in the game. Feature wise Michelangelo includes the popular cascading wins system where winning paylines are removed and new symbols cascade from the top of the reels to replace them, giving you and extra chance to win again on the same spin. There are also free spins to be won if you manage to land three free games symbols on an active payline.
My overall opinion of Michelangelo is a bit mixed. I think that the game has a decent theme and presentation, but the lack bonus features do a lot to hold the game back and the game quickly becomes boring without much standing out. With that being said, I found myself able to strike some large wins given the low amount I was betting per spin, and that is a great sign. Of course I didn't see myself having as much fun as I thought I might when I first started this game, and overall I found it a bit repetitive. However if you're the type of person who has an appreciation for fine art, Michelangelo may be the perfect slot for you.
