If a chandelier drops down from the top of the screen, reel 2 and 3 will become completely wild. It can happen at any point during a game. In the story about the Phantom of the Opera, a dropping chandelier is an integral part of the plot. When the novel was written back in the early 1900s, the author was inspired by a real event where a chandelier crashed in the opera house during a performance, killing one person and injuring several others. The crash was caused by a fire in the roof which melted through a wire holding a counterweight for the heavy chandelier.

About the Phantom of the Opera
This slot is based on the 2004 movie, but the story is considerably older and comes from the novel ”Le Fantôme de l’Opéra” written in French by Gaston Leroux and published as a serial in 1909-1910. In the 1980s, Andrew Lloyd Webber turned the storyline into a musical using a libretto he co-wrote with Richard Stilgoe and with lyrics by Charles Hart.
The plot revolves around Christine, a young soprano who becomes the obsession of Erik, a masked musical genius who lives under the opera house in Paris. The subterranean part of the opera house in Paris actually exists in real life, even the underground lake. Nowadays, the lake is used to train French firefighters to carry out rescue missions while swimming in the dark.
