Mysterious Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

Today we are learning all about an old Pragmatic Play game that feels forgotten now only after a year. I recently reviewed the providers latest announcement, titled ‘Chilli Heat Megaways‘, which has a max win capped at 5,000x and a respin feature. Today we are learning all about ‘Mysterious’, originally released 14th February 2020.

As shown in the slot name, the set theme is a mystery with puzzles. This is paired with ghosts, multipliers, and free spins. The slot background is set in a spooky dark town, with lightning effects in the fog/clouds. The background/visuals set a spooky scene for the mysterious puzzles. I love the visuals for this game and think Pragmatic Play did a fantastic job creating them.

Mysterious has a setup of 4 reels by 4 rows, this includes 256 – 4,096 ways to win. This game is medium-high variance due to the set RTP of 96.5% and a rating of 5/5 volatility by Pragmatic. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.
