Mystery Mission – To the Moon Slot Review 2024

Mystery Mission – To the Moon from Push Gaming continues the critically acclaimed Mystery Series in the depths of space as we explore a world beyond our own in search of galactic treasures!

Mystery Museum was released in August 2020, and it received widespread praise for its Mysery Stacks Feature and the huge potential that came with it. Mystery Musuem is revered even today as a go-to for many Push Gaming enthusiasts, and now there’s another with even bigger potential, expanded reels, re-triggers, and more.

We’re suddenly keen curators and historians when the Mystery series is spinning, and we’re looking forward to collecting other wordly artefacts for the musuem. Great discovery doesn’t come without its risks though, so beware of the Mystery Martian who is stalking your ship…

Without further ado, let’s blast off into this Mystery Mission – To the Moon Slot Review and check out the new (and hopefully improved) take on the Mystery Series!

Mystery Mission To the Moon – The Base Game and Features

If you didn’t know better then you probably wouldn’t make the connection between Mystery Musuem and Mystery Mission To the Moon.

Both look so different in terms if theme, but they look different in terms of layout too.

Push Gaming have opted for a 6×4 reel configuration in favour of Mystery Musuem’s 5×3 setup, and the pay lines have doubled from 10 to 20 in Mystery Mission To The Moon. Forming a win requires a line of at least 3 symbols, and the highest paying symbols in the game are the rather malevolent-looking symbol, the Alien, and the Astronaut.

So far, the similarities between Mystery Mission and Mystery Musuem look rather sparse, but the resemblance becomes more striking through its Mystery Stack Symbol Feature

Mystery Mission To the Moon Scatters

Mystery Stack Symbol Feature

The Mystery Stack symbol features are Mystery Stacks that can land on any position on any reel.

These will nudge to fill their respective reel when 3 or more are present at one time, and reveal any paying symbol except for the Wild Moon Symbol.

3 ore more Mystery Stack symbols will award wins on all 20 win lines, regardless of whether the symbols match consecutively from left to right.

Ante Bet

Another improvement in Mystery Mission – To the Moon is the Ante Bet Feature.

This is a selectable option for players, and activating it will increase your chance of winning Free Spins.

The increase in stake is actually very reasonable here, with only a 20% increase on your original Base Bet. Some providers take features like this too far, and in some cases they actually double your bet.

20% seems like a very small price to pay for an increased chance at Free Games.

Mystery Mission To the Moon – Free Spins

The Wild Moon Symbol acts as Wild as the name suggests, but it also acts as a Scatter symbol.

  • 3 Wild Moon Symbols – 8 Free Spins
  • 4 Wild Moon Symbols – 10 Free Spins
  • 5 Wild Moon Symbols – 12 Free Spins
  • 6 Wild Moon Symbols – 14 Free Spins

During Free Spins, any Mystery Stack that lands will nudge to fill its respective reel. The symbols will reveal any paying symbol except for the Wild Moon Symbnol, and the stacks remain in place for the duration of Free Spins.

The aim in Free Spins is to get 3 or more Mystery Stack Symbols. Once this happens, the Stacks will turn Gold, and each will reveal identical symbols on each spin. The revealed Golden Mystery Stack symbols will award wins on all 20 lines, regardless of whether they match on consecutive reels.,

Mystery Mission – To the Moon is very similar to Mystery Musuem in the sense that more is better, and the big potential comes from landing as many Mystery Stack Symbols as possible.

Mystery Mission To the Moon awards an extra spin for evey Mystery Stack Symbol which lands, which is really valuable in this kind of game.

Mystery Mission To the Moon – Our Verdict

Despite their vast differences in the visual sense, Push Gaming has kept Mystery Museum very much in mind when they curated Mystery Mission To the Moon.

The key gameplay elements that made its predecessor great still exists here, and they’ve built upon it with higher volatility and bigger potential…or so it would seem. The highest possible win in Mystery Mission To the Moon is 10,000x, which is actually lower than Mystery Museums’ potential on paper.

Mystery Musuem was released at a time where maximum win figures were more of a theoretical max than a realistic possibility. In fact, the highest observed win for Mystery Musuem was 62,003x, but we’re pretty sure it never hit it.

We think Push are looking for something more achievable in Mystery Mission, and we’re pretty confident that we’ll be seeing many instances of Mystery Mission putting its money where its mouth is when it releases.

In our opinion, Mystery Mission – To the Moon is a change for the better with minor tweaks that make for a big difference. Bigger reel size, ante bet and re-triggers can make all the difference, and they certainly address some of the parts of Mystery Musuem that wasn’t too appealing.

All of this coupled with the immersive and imaginative art and music makes the newest in the Mystery Series an anticipated title. Then again, isn’t every new Push Gaming title an antipated release?

Push Gaming really does take time with their newest games, opting for quality over quantity. You may not see a new Push Gaming slot every other week, but it’s only because they’re carefully nurturing their next game.

Mystery Mission certainly feels like a game that received a lot of TLC, and we’re excited to see it in action for real when it releases.
