Voila! Gameplay and Symbols
It’s time to have a romantic getaway and head to sweet Paris. The Voila! slot is a true French-themed machine with some good graphics. The slot face is nice and clean, which is good when the icons are so detailed, and the background is of Paris’ city skyline during the daytime.

The Voila! title logo with the Eiffel Tower is the wild symbol and will substitute for any other symbols in the game for a win, except for the scatter bonus symbol of course. On top of this any wins you make using the wild will get a random multiplier of two, three, or four times.
When you hit a win in Voila! the animations, especially on the landmark based icons, are really cool. All of the icons are detailed and intricate and a lot of effort has clearly been put into this buy Microgaming.
Unfortunately, this seems to be at the expense of the ambient sounds which are pretty much non-existent. However, the tunes when you hit a win are excellent and add a lot to this slot, it’s just a shame there isn’t more ambient music or sound effects during normal gameplay.
