Secrets lost in time and treasures are waiting to be unearthed. Immerse yourself in history in Push Gaming’s newest, and highly volatile instalment, Mystery Museum Slot, which is available to play now on most Online Casinos UK!
Push Gaming is a provider with a ‘Players First’ motto, who focuses on providing the best entertainment possible for consumers, and they’ve certainly delivered on that front.
With some solid titles under their belt, we’re certainly excited to turn historian as ancient artefacts and hieroglyphs await.
A Night in the Museum of Mystery
Graphically, Mystery Museum is very interesting. Faint sunlight protrudes through the windows of the museum, shining a spotlight on ancient and priceless statues, books and artefacts.
All sorts of themes seem to shine through here including Ancient Greek, Roman, Japanese and Egyptian symbols. The music is a refined soundtrack with an air of adventure and mystery to it, and certainly compliments the theme they’ve gone for well.
Mystery Museum is a 5-reel, 3-row New Slot with 10 traditional pay lines, which will resonate well amongst those looking for a traditional way of playing, while still having them new and exciting features that everyone loves.
13 symbols appear in total, with the highest being a Wild Samurai symbol, which also works as a Scatter and a Scatter Pays symbol. Other top symbols include a golden Egyptian Mask, a Roman helmet and a mythological Medusa Shield.
The Base Game of Mystery Museum Slot
As mentioned, Mystery Museum utilises an older era style of game play by using traditional pay lines.
Wins are paid from left to right and 3 or more matching symbols along any of the 10 set pay lines will form a win. There are some interesting features at play in Mystery Museum.
Mystery Stack Symbol
Mystery Stack symbols may appear on the reel in any position during the base game, and landing 3 or more in the Base Game will nudge them into view to fill their respective reel where they’ll turn gold.
A re-spin will occur and all of them will reveal the same symbols, but will not produce Wild Samurai symbols.
These will pay regardless of whether symbols match consecutively from left to right, and is sort of reminiscent of the Casino Bonus features you’d have seen by playing some of the ‘Book of’ games like Book of Dead.
Not entirely innovative, but definitely not complaining it’s there. As anyone who’s played games with mechanics like this before knows, 3, 4 or 5 reels of matching symbols can result in some big hits if you get a good symbol.
Power Gamble Feature
The Power Gamble feature is brand new, and it allows players to choose whether or not they’d like to gamble any winnings of greater than, or equal to 2x, 5x, 10x, 25x or 50x for a chance at the bonus, or more money.
A progressive meter is displayed on the left of the screen, with cards and an odds selector on the right of the screen.
Filling the meter will either award a top prize or get you into the bonus + a little bit of money, whichever you choose.
Dare You Gamble Your Win?
First of all, select your odds, represented on the right of the screen by ticks and crosses, all of which will change the state of play.
3 ticks will be a lower risk, lower reward option. Four cards are present, and three of them will represent a tick while the other across.
Flipping one of the cards over revealing a tick will increase your win incrementally, but you’ll also need to do it multiple times to fill the meter and the top prize is lower.
2 ticks mean that you effectively have a 50% chance of picking a tick out of the four cards. Choosing this will reward you a bigger pay out per successful gamble, you’ll be closer to filling the meter and the top prize is higher.
1 tick is high risk and high reward, only one of the four cards is correct, but you’ll be closer to the bonus if you get it right and the top prize is higher.
Free Games Feature
If 3 or more Wild Samurai symbols land anywhere in view, the bonus will trigger. As mentioned, Scatter Symbols are wild.
So you might even get a decent win before even starting the bonus, and Scatter symbols also pay, but only if adjacent to each other and on a pay line.
- 3 Symbols – 8 Spins
- 4 Symbols – 10 Spins
- 5 Symbols – 12 spins
The aim of the game is to land as many Mystery Stack symbols as possible. Any that land will nudge and fill their respective reel and reveal a symbol each spin, and will remain on the reels for the duration of the Free Spins.
To really benefit from this bonus, you’ll need to land 3 or more Mystery Stack Symbols, when this happens the stacks will once again turn gold.
Each will reveal the same symbol every spin and reward wins on all 10 pay lines, regardless of whether or not they’re adjacent.
Our Verdict of Mystery Musem slot
Mystery Museum isn’t exactly packed with features, so it isn’t the most exciting game ever made.
The Mystery Stack symbols can, however, have you on the edge of your seat if you land 3 in the base game, and makes things a lot more exciting.
The bonus round can also be really exciting and very rewarding, but you’ll be heavily reliant on landing 3 or more Mystery Stacks, and when it does the game can absolutely go off.
The Power Gamble is a very interesting feature and definitely adds excitement and suspense to the game.
Definitely something that will appeal to those who enjoy a riskier way to play and can definitely be rewarding if luck is on your side.
The game is highly volatile and can absolutely decimate your balance, so definitely isn’t something that will be good for wagering, and you’ll be surprised how difficult it can be to get the 2x win needed to get onto the power gamble.
