TRIVIA

Sweet Hearts II was released in September 1995.

On the artwork the title reads "Sweet Hearts II", but on the Lucky Devil version in the Electronic Game Information display, it says "Sweethearts II (Lucky Devil)". The 2000 MKV Hyperlink version was also called "Sweethearts II" on the artwork. The 2004 MKVI update reverts back to the original "Sweet Hearts II" in the game information display. Official title mess-ups?

Bet amounts differ between jurisdictions. For example, the 180 credit version has bet buttons marked 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20, whereas the 45 credit version's bet buttons are simply 1 through 5.

MKIV and MKV versions were removed from Victorian gaming venues, including Crown Casino due to new gaming machine laws. As of December 2007, no gaming machine is allowed to have an 'auto-spin' function, and machines must not accept $100 notes.

UPDATES

On the MK2.5 and MKIV versions, the Seven through Ace symbols had a white or pale yellow background. On the later games all symbols have a blue reel background.

On the Jubilee MKIV version, the 'Heart' graphic had a black background with a circle around the heart. Later versions had a blue background with small hearts around it. Additionally, this version displays the total number of free spins played at the end of the feature. If 5 Hearts occur on this version, all five reels are held for the remaining free spins rather than being spun to their respective positions.

* All pays are left to right including scatters.

* Diamond substitutes for all symbols except scattered Heart.

* Feature : Any left to right scatter win triggers 3 free spins.
Initial scatter win is held during feature.
During feature scatters pay any.
Any additional Hearts spun up are held and 3 spins recommence.
When a 5-of-a-kind Heart win occurs the 5x Heart win is replayed 3 times.

* It is not possible to get a line win during the Heart spins due to the location of the symbols.
