Cupid is set up in the sky with a clear blue background with white clouds. The grid has a gold frame with ornaments and the game logo on top. The reels have dark blue colours for the background of the card symbols, which also have gold frames.
There are gold harps, rings and cups, red crystal hearts, red roses and Cupid himself with his arrow in action. The images are decorated with gold, look very clear and simple. The soundtrack is very pleasant, melodic with the sounds of a harp. The game menu is on the bottom of the reels and is intuitive.
Cupid has 20 fixed pay-lines and to get a win you need 2 to 5 symbols of a kind on a line of the standard ones. The scatter does not need to appear on a pay-line and rewards in any position for 2 or more symbols.
The paying symbols include 6 card royals at the low end, 5 premiums, a wild and a scatter. The 9 pays from 0.10 to 5x stake for 2 to 5 symbols on a line. The 10, J and Q cards grant wins of 0.25, 1.25 and 5 times the stake for 3, 4 and 5 matching ones on a line. The K and A return 0.50, 2.50 and 6.25 times the stake.
The premium symbols are 5 items related to the love theme. The gold cup and the ring pay 0.75, 3.75 and 12.50x stake for 3, 4 and 5 of a kind. The gold harp gives you 1, 5 and 20 times the stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols. The white dove and the red rose are the most rewarding of the regular symbols. They pay 0.10, 1.25, 6.25 and 37.50 times the stake for 2, 3, 4 and 5 symbols on a line.
There is a wild symbol and it is with the image of Cupid himself with the arrow and bow. It substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatters and pays as well. When contributing to winning combinations with 1 or more symbols, the wild doubles your wins. It gives you 0.50, 12.50, 125 and 450 times the stake for 2, 3, 4 and 5 symbols respectively.
The scatter is the red crystal heart framed in gold. It doesn’t need to appear on a pay-line to give you 2, 5, 20 and 500 times the stake for 2, 3, 4 and 5 symbols. It also activates the free spins.

The average return to player of this feature is 84%. On the whole, your chances for winning depend on the dealer’s hand. The higher value it has, the lower chances you stand to choose a better card.
