If you get married in Las Vegas at certain justices of the peace, they’ll even throw in a few gaming chips as part of the complimentary wedding package. (Awww, how nice.)
Flash-forward to the 21st century when marriages are virtual and everything – yes, everything – is done via internet; the couples of tomorrow will certainly be plunging the prezzies into stuff like the Secret Garden slot game. Why? It’s just so darn ... romantic.
So call Rival Software the Merchant-Ivory of online casino games, and Secret Garden its latest 5-reel 20-payline blockbuster: The ethereal music (though unfortunately overly repetitive – how about a few more bars, please?) and gorgeous graphics make this game a delight to behold.
On the minus side in the Secret Garden slot is the game-within-a-game, a slightly counterintuitive exercise which involves our heroine opening doors, watering flowerbeds and collecting flowers; not exactly a mouse-friendly bit of activity.
