Esmeralda Slot Machine
Esmeralda is a 5 reel and 25 payline slot game produced by Playtech. The game is based on Victor Hugo's novel 'Hunchback of Notre Dame'. The game follows the character of Esmeralda, the gypsy flower-seller who befriends the hunchback. Although the hunchback is the main character in the story, there is no sight of him amongst the reels.
The backdrop of the game is of dozens of red roses and sheets of velvet. The game features many gypsy-themed symbols such as jewelry and instruments. The overall feel of the game is one of love and romance.
