Dangerous Beauty Basics
Dangerous Beauty is a visually appealing online video slot consisting of five reels, four rows, and 40 adjustable paylines. It can be played on your computer or at mobile casinos in Michigan. Casinos with the Dangerous Beauty slot game include BetMGM in Michigan, BetRivers Casino and of course, Golden Nugget Online Casino.
The main character is a beautiful black-haired kimono-clad maiden who learned how to defend herself with a sword at an early age. But now her village is under siege, so she needs all the help she can get. She wants you to join forces with her other recruits to protect her homeland from marauders.
Dangerous Beauty online slot presumably got its inspiration from Asian Samurai martial arts films. The predominant colors you’ll see on the reels are green, purple, and dark blue. Pagoda rooftops in the distance at the top of the screen and lush greenery at the bottom of the screen complete the picture.
No progressive jackpot, but you can still win big
Unfortunately, the Dangerous Beauty slot machine has a mediocre return to player (RTP), and the game does not offer a progressive jackpot. But, thanks to a wild symbol and frequently appearing stacked symbols, big wins are possible. If you’re really lucky, you’ll trigger the Free Games bonus round where you will be awarded seven free spins. Large wins are accompanied by green or yellow lights encircling the winning symbol and cascades of falling coins. It’s a nice added touch.
Dangerous Beauty slots bet range
Playing Dangerous Beauty for real money offers a wide range of bet sizes, so it can be easily adapted to suit the bankroll and playing style of virtually anyone.
For starters, you are not compelled to play with all 40 paylines activated if you prefer fewer paylines.
However, keep in mind that as you reduce the number of paylines, the number of ways to win goes down while the volatility of the game goes up. Therefore, a better way to lower the cost of playing, if that is your intention, is to keep all 40 paylines active and simply select a lower coin size or line bet.
The minimum coin size is 1 cent while the maximum is $10. Since the cost of each bet is the coin size multiplied by the number of paylines, if you keep all 40 paylines in play, the minimum bet is a very affordable 40 cents and the maximum is a very steep $400.
Dangerous Beauty RTP and Volatility
Your likelihood of having a winning outcome on this slot or any slot depends partly on luck and partly on not overbetting your bankroll. But it is also affected by the game’s RTP and volatility.
The RTP is defined as the percentage of your starting bankroll that you can reasonably expect to have returned to you in winnings after a great many playing sessions. It is not intended to serve as a predictor of single session results. Single session outcomes can vary markedly from the published RTP in either direction.
Dangerous Beauty has a published RTP of 94.90 percent. While this percentage isn’t bad, it isn’t great either. Compared to other Michigan online slots, it is only about average. A better choice would be a slot with an RTP of 96 percent or higher.
You can still win playing Dangerous Beauty, just as you can still lose playing a higher RTP slot. However, play sensibly and if you’re ahead, don’t keep pressing to the point where you give all of your winnings back and more.
The volatility of a slot refers to the probability of huge bankroll swings (either up or down, or most likely, both). Of course, watching your bankroll soar to new heights during a lucky streak is very exhilarating, but during a cold streak, the opposite can happen.
Dangerous Beauty is described by the manufacturer as a low volatility slot. However, my play in demo mode suggests that medium volatility is more accurate. In either case, the game’s average RTP will limit what you can expect to win, so the best way to avoid putting your bankroll in danger is to play within your means.
Dangerous Beauty Symbols
The symbols in Dangerous Beauty include 10 regular symbols, a wild symbol, and a scatter symbol. Winning combinations are formed in the usual manner from left to right with like symbols lining up consecutively on adjacent reels.
- The three highest valued regular symbols are the three female warriors.
- The one that pays the most is the woman with black hair, wearing a black kimono, with a sword held high.
- The second highest paying regular symbol is a woman in a red kimono, holding a sword in one hand.
- The third highest paying symbol is a woman with white hair, holding a sword behind her head.
- A leopard and black panther are next and equal in value.
- The five lower paying regular symbols are the playing cards 10-A.
The wild symbol is the Dangerous Beauty logo. As the game’s highest paying symbol, five across a payline return an impressive 10,000 coins (or 40,000 coins if the whole screen turns wild!) The wild symbol also substitutes for all other symbols, except the scatter symbol.
The scatter symbol is a green dragon. It appears in the main game only and only on reels 2, 3, and 4.
If and only if the scatter symbol completely fills all three middle reels simultaneously, you will trigger the potentially highly lucrative Free Games bonus round.
Dangerous Beauty Paytable
The following paytable lists the payouts for 5, 4, and 3 of a kind and, where applicable, for 2 of a kind for all of the symbols except the scatter symbol.
No. of Coins Paid Out for Different Winning Combinations
|Dangerous Beauty logo||1,000||250||50||10|
|Woman in black kimono||50||19||10||4|
|Woman in red kimono||40||17||8||3|
|Woman with white hair||30||16||6||2|
Dangerous Beauty Special Features
Dangerous Beauty offers two special features. Stacked symbols and free games.
Stacked symbols occur frequently in this game. In fact, both during the main game and free spins, super stacks that cover adjacent reels are capable of producing enormous payouts. However, because the stacks are vertical (rather than horizontal), some stacked symbols pay nothing.
Upon triggering the Free Games bonus round, the reels turn light red and sunlight appears at the top of the screen. During each of the seven free spins, one symbol is randomly chosen to appear stacked. Playing in demo mode, I got a big win when the top paying female warrior was stacked. But an even better scenario would be to have the wild symbol stacked!
However, in some ways, the Free Games are a big disappointment. Besides being impossible to retrigger, the feature includes no extra bonuses like extra wild symbols, sticky wilds, or win multipliers.
The Bottom Line
This relatively simple but never dull fantasy themed slot should appeal to a wide range of bettors. Also, despite the scary title and symbols, playing within your means in the confines of your home should pose little danger to your bankroll. And, you might even emerge with big winnings.
