Not everyone loves a good mystery but even if you are a little nervous of murder and mystery you will love to play at It's a Mystery Slots, this five reel twenty five payline slots game from Real Time Gaming that reminds me of the childhood game Cluedo. There are interesting characters dressed in their finery together with tools that might be used to find out who dunnit. The whole atmosphere is enhanced by the mansion in which the murder has taken placed and with its regal red setting you are drawn in to the atmosphere of the game.
It’s a Mystery slots has a number of exciting features that I found took me a while to get used to. These include the feature guarantee, the win win trigger and of course the minor and major jackpots that can be awarded at any time after a spin. The feature guarantee is triggered at any time also after you have completed a number of spins; it gives you a chance to enjoy the bonus round if you have not managed to win a chance through free spins. The magnifying glass with the question mark acts as the wild symbol and can substitute for other symbols to help make a winning line. On its own the magnifying glass also offers handsome wins where five in a row on an active payline will give you 7500 coins which is the highest payout in the base game.
The It’s a Mystery logo is the scatter symbol and this offers multiplying wins of 3-200x the coin bet placed for the triggering spin when three or more land anywhere on your screen. The scatter symbol is also the key to the bonus game which activates the free spins. The bonus game is rather unusual and it may take you a few attempts to get used to it, as it did with me. Depending on the number of scatters that activate the bonus game you are taken to a new screen and presented with a jumbled puzzle where you are given different shuffle amounts. The number of times you can shuffle depends on the number of scatters that brought you to the bonus game. The aim of this game is to try and lock in place the correct pieces in order to make the puzzle. The more pieces that you manage to lock in place the more free spins you will receive. You can win up to 50 free spins in this bonus game.
There is another additional bonus feature which is called the win win feature and it will be triggered at random when you have not won anything from the feature guarantee, well that is how I understood it to be when I played. Again this needs a lot of practice to understand but with the win win feature you are guaranteed a win of 3x up to 100x your bet depending on what you won in the free spins, and yes there is more, at any time after a spin you can win either the minor or major jackpot both of which are progressive jackpots that grow with the more players that join the game. There is a lot to take in when playing this game and thankfully there is an auto play feature which lets you sit back and watch the game pan out giving you a chance to understand the intricacies of it. Bets can range from $0.01 up to $125 per spin, which is a wide range and also allows you to start low and work your way up as your confidence grows and you become more familiar with the game. This is an incredible game to play once you get to know it and then there will be no stopping you finding out the mystery and enjoying the suspense.
