Revealing Mighty Mystery Masks

During both the base game and Free Spins round, special Mighty Mask symbols can land randomly across the reels.

These symbols, when in view, will reveal either a High or Low-paying symbol or Wild. Multiple Mighty Mask symbols in one spin will always reveal the same symbol.

If Mighty Mask symbols appear on 3 reels or more, they will reveal the same symbol and spread downwards to the bottom of their respective reels.

Nudge Wilds & NudgeReels

Also in play during both the base game and Free Spins round is the Nudge Wild symbol. When a Nudge Wild symbol lands in view, it will trigger the NudgeReels feature, nudging the Multiplier Wheel up to 50x your bet.

If a Nudge Wild symbol lands at the same time as at least 1 winning combination across the reels, it will activate the Multiplier Wheel that sits next to the reel set.

The Multiplier Wheel will spin to a Multiplier value between 2x and 100x, which is then applied to your total win for that particular spin. The Nudge Wild can also display a nudge value between 1 and 50, in which case the Multiplier Wheel will nudge the number of times shown on the Nudge Wild, adding the Multiplier values it nudges to onto the total Multiplier above the Wheel.

Mighty Masks: Serengeti Sunset Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters across the reels during the base game triggers the Serengeti Sunset Free Spins round, awarding 10, 12, and 14 Free Spins respectively.

During Free Spins, the Mighty Mask and Nudge Wild symbols appear more often than in the base game. Landing 2 or 3 Scatters during this time will award an additional +2 and +4 Free Spins respectively.

Mighty Masks: Our Verdict

Mighty Masks is yet another great attempt from Hacksaw Gaming to bestow their creative prowess upon an audience that craves something well-built, entertaining and capable.

It doesn’t feel truly Hacksaw when it comes to visuals with a Serengeti look that feels better housed in another studios portfolio, but perhaps we’re just used to Hacksaw’s darker demeanour. While uncharacteristic of their usual style, it does look great, and it even evoked some fond childhood memories with a mask that looks like something from Crash Bandicoot.

When it comes to gameplay, Hacksaw has once again utilised their expertise in multipliers, and in a refreshingly different way at that. There’s also a nudge element, which to us feels like a staple mechanic that players love above most other features.

Statistically, Mighty Masks is as capable as most of their other games at 10,000x as a maximum win.

Overall. Mighty Masks looks humble at first, but it’s amazingly capable and as fun as you’d expect a Hacksaw slot to be.
