Mystery Of The Orient Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
The month of January is over, and February slot announcements are here from all providers. Studio Pragmatic Play has seven scheduled releases, in which I have reviewed 4 of these so far. The latest was for the game titled ‘Wild Wild Riches Megaways‘, which has a max win capped at 10,000x and includes 4 Jackpot values up to 250x. In today’s review, we are learning all about ‘Mystery Of The Orient’, which is set to release on February 20th and created alongside studio Wild Streak Gaming.
Orient is a term which refers to the Eastern World, with what appears to be an Asian-inspired theme used for this slot. The game background displays a beautiful sunset filled with cherry blossom trees and a waterfall behind the reel set. There is a female character holding a sword next to the reel set and appearing as a premium symbol. The reel set is gold with green jade on each corner and a pattern engraved. Premium symbols are represented by items such as Golden trinket boxes and Tigers. The game background transforms now with a purple aesthetic when the Free Spins feature begins. There are also various animations, such as Premium symbols when part of a win. Plus the female character next to the reel set.
Mystery Of The Orient has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows; this includes 25 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96% and a max win capped at 8,035x. You can bet from £0.25 to £125.
Mystery Of The Orient Symbols & Pay Table
There are 15 symbols in total; this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 5 premium symbols; these are represented by Guitars, Swords, Trinket Boxes, Tigers and a Female Character. In addition to these regular symbols is a Coin Wild Symbol, a Free Spins scatter, a Mystery Symbol and a Scatter Symbol. The highest paying symbol is the female character premium, which pays 4x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the Free Spins symbol, appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4. Wilds that are revealed can have a random Multiplier of 2x to 25x.
Mystery Of The Orient Features & Mechanics
Landing 3 or more scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. 3, 4 or 5 Scatters will award 15, 20 or 25 Free Spins. During spins, two or more special symbols can appear or be revealed by Mystery Symbols. This feature can be purchased for 100x your chosen stake. Special symbols are;
Reel Size Increase – The reel this symbol appears on will increase the reel height by one symbol and will remain like this until the end of the feature, up to a maximum of 6 symbols high.
Additional Free Spins – A random number of additional Free Spins are awarded between 1 to 5. Being revealed by Mystery Symbols can award 2, 3, 4 or 5 Scatters, awarding 2, 3, 4 or 5 additional Free Spins.
Overall, this slot uses an Asian Inspired theme, a familiar and popular choice by the provider. Visual aspects are never a disappointment by Pragmatic Play, with a range of animations and beautifully detailed artwork, especially behind the reel set and around it. The main attraction is the Free Spins feature which has a Bonus Buy option. During spins, there are two special symbols you will want to land, which help aid spins with increasing reels and extra Free Spins.
