Mysterious Slot Chills to the Bone
Online slot players who like their gaming sessions to have a somewhat uneasy feeling about them will love the latest title from Pragmatic Play
. The game is called Mysterious
, and it gives players a haunting glimpse into life in a strangely eerie mansion that is located, as tradition insists, high on a hill.
Set in the Victorian era, this slot has the kind of atmosphere that made 18th and 19th century horror novels so appealing, and a very decent maximum payout of 20,000 times your stake
provides more than enough incentive to set aside any fear you may have and begin exploring this gothic environment in earnest.
Turn the Lights Down Low…
Mysterious is a game best played with the lights turned down low, because it really does provide masses of atmosphere that deserves to be enjoyed to the maximum. The slot is presented as a four-by-four grid, giving you 256 ways to win
, and this is set against an atmospheric backdrop which depicts a Victorian street under the light of a full moon. It is, as you would hope, a rather dark and stormy night, and the very impressive fully animated background shows the storm clouds billowing in the sky, lightning flashing and fog slowly rolling down the street.
To the top right of the background you will see the Mysterious mansion on the hill, and if you get lucky and trigger the Free Spins feature you may well end up going inside it, but more of that later.
The symbols on the reels are beautifully and intricately designed. Gems in the shape of the playing card suits of diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades, each of which is set into an ornate black background, serve as the lower value symbols. Four gothic doorknockers in the shape of various animals serve as higher value symbols, and the most valuable symbol of all is a Mysterious logo. There are three different wild symbols available in the main game, although only one will be active at any given time, and a blue Free Spins symbols serves as a scatter.
Visually, this game is stunning, and a suitably haunting soundtrack which is pleasingly heavy on the pipe organ will accompany you on every step of your quest to discover the secrets of this dark and foreboding place. As we said earlier, it’s best to turn the lights down low if you want to get the most out of this superbly realised atmosphere, and if you can play on a real dark and stormy night, so much the better!
Random Spin Features
To the left of the game grid you will see three old portraits. Each of those portraits depicts a character which appears on a corresponding wild symbol. When you first play this game, one of the three portraits will be randomly selected and will light up. This will show you which wild will be in play for the subsequent spins. Each wild has a different ability, as follows:
- The Lord wild will, when it helps you to complete or improve a winning combination, give you a multiplier of 2x or 3x that will then be applied to your win. Should you get more than one of these symbols in a combination, their values will be multiplied together. Two symbols giving you a 2x and a 3x multiplier would therefore give you a combined multiplier of 6x your prize.
- The Lady wild expand to fill the whole reel she occupies and then reveal a mystery stacked symbol. Any prize that has already been won will be paid before this expansion takes place, so the Lady will never cause you to miss out on regular prizes but she could help you to win much more in addition.
- The Baron wild has the ability to infect adjacent symbols vertically, which will transform those symbols into additional wilds, further improving your chances of winning.
Each of these three wild modes is very enjoyable, but don’t take any of them for granted because a different portrait can be illuminated, changing the active wild mode, at any time.
Mysterious Free Spins Feature
When you get three or four Free Spins symbols on the reels at the same time
you will activate the Mysterious Free Spins feature, which will give you eight or twelve free spins, respectively. You will have a choice of two different modes for this part of the game, as follows:
Locking Multiplier Free Spins will add a clock symbol to the reels, and whenever that symbol lands it will award a multiplier value of 3, 6, 9 or 12 times. Get two clocks on the reels and you will earn two more free spins with the multiplier locked in place.
Resurrecting Roaming Wilds Free Spins will cause any wild symbol that helps you to win to fade from the screen. It will then roam the reels and randomly appear in a different location should the next spin bring any more wilds into play.
Whichever mode you opt for, your free spins will be played within the Mysterious mansion itself, and the game grid will be increased in size to measure six reels by four rows. You will have 4,096 ways to win here
, so keep your fingers crossed and your trip to the mansion could be seriously profitable!
