Cluedo Mighty Ways Slot Demo Gameplay
Cluedo Mighty Ways Slot Review 2022
Calling all sleuths! We’re heading back to the Cluedo Mansion where another gruesome crime has taken place in Light & Wonder’s latest murder mystery title, Cluedo Mighty Ways!
Have you got what it takes to return to the Cluedo Mansion and solve yet another crime? The clue is in the title, but for those of you who don’t know, Cluedo, also known as Clue in North America is a murder mystery board game that was put together in 1943 by British designer Anthony. E. Pratt. The aim of the game is to determine who’s the murderer, where it happened and which weapon was used. Since the original Cluedo was released, Hasbro has bought out its fair share of remakes, but nothing beats the original in our eyes.
It’s not the first time we’ve played a game of Cluedo in slot form, thanks to Light & Wonder’s (previously known as SG Digital) past release, Cluedo Cash Mystery in 2021, but the idea of Mighty Ways sounds much more appealing, don’t you think? Alongside this, Light & Wonder are the brains behind Reign of the Mountain King, Stargate Megaways and Spartacus Megaways.
Will it be Miss Scarlett, in the Library with the Candlestick? Let’s play on and find out!
Cluedo Mighty Ways Base Game and Features
Cluedo Mighty Ways is a 6 reel slot with up to 262,144 Mighty Ways to win. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbol types from left to right, starting from the left-most reel. The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€10 per spin, with a variety of betting options in between the two.
Like many other slots, Cluedo Mighty Ways makes use of the Cascading feature. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will fall down via a Cascade, filling all empty positions on the reels. Once a Cascade occurs, it has the ability to create even more winning combinations. Thanks to the Mighty Ways mechanic, after each new Cascade, the Mighty Ways open up the reels, to a maximum of 8 High.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Cluedo Mighty Ways is the Cluedo Logo, followed by the Jewellery Box, Glass & Pipe, Vase and Feather Duster. Low-paying symbols are standard, Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine. There is also a Wild symbol present, which substitutes for all symbols except Cluedo Cards and the Magnifying Glass. Wild symbols will only appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Cluedo Mighty Ways has a very exciting Cluedo Trail feature that offers tons of potential, and is your ticket to the Free Spins round. More on this below!
On the left side of the reel set is a Cluedo Trail with 9 individual segments.
