9 Masks Of Fire
If you’re wondering how Gameburger fits into all of this, it’s another Microgaming team effort that just saw the release of 9 Masks of Fire. Microgaming’s collaborative efforts with smaller software houses seems to be the norm now. Not that we are complaining, because 9 Masks of Fire with its African theme, RTP (average return to player percentage) of 96.26% and its winning potential (non-progressive jackpots) of 2,000x (£$120,000) your stake has plenty going for it. Earlier, Microgaming’s Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx received positive reviews from online slots critics including Casinomeister.
The volatility of 9 Masks of Fire is in the mid-range, played on a 5×3 grid. It features 20 paylines (fixed) and 5 reels. The audio track of beating drums is in perfect rhythm with the spinning reels, which further highlights the theme’s cultural diversity. The theme is nothing but novel, yet Gameburger adds its own unique spin and twist to it, and as a result, it’s difficult to ignore. The slot machine can now be played on mobile phones (Androids, iOS, and tablets) at our free play slots from the best online casinos from £$0.20 to £$60 per spin.
Symbols on the reels are bars, cherries, dollar signs, bells, four lucky sevens, tribal shield and icon (Free Spins symbol), the scatter mask, and Wild (Diamond). The symbol to look out for is the triple 7s, and 5 of them, regardless of their position on the reels, pays 37.5x your stake.
The in-game features boast a Free Spins round that awards up to 30 free falls with 3x multipliers. Scatters (9 Masks) pay up to 2,000x your stake. The visual fidelity is flush with an African/tribal motif. Unfortunately, the highest paying symbols are nothing but a hot air balloon that’s about to pop.
The Wild symbol is the Diamond, and winning combinations are completed by it when it replaces adjacent symbols, except the scatter.
The Mask is the scatter, and it awards scatter pays when 3 or more of them appear at any place across a payline. The cash prizes awarded by the scatter are progressive. For example, 3 scatters pays 1x, 4 scatters 5x, 5 scatters 15x, 6 scatters 40x, 7 scatters 100x, 8 scatters 500x and 9 scatters pays 2,000x.
Free Spins Bonus Wheel
The free spins feature gets initiated by 3, 4, or 5 tribal shield and spear symbols, and at the same time, offers a cash prize of 1x your stake. Depending on the amount of scatters that pitch, 10 to 30 free spins are awarded, along with multipliers ranging from 2x to 3x. From what we’ve seen during the feature, we believe that the Free Spins can be re-triggered.
Gameburger gets a nod from us with 9 Masks of Fire. It has a subtle blend of in-game bonuses such as scatters pays and free spins feature with multipliers of up to 3x. The gameplay is simple, and although the top jackpot of 2,000x your stake is not the best, it is enough to warrant a few spins. The medium-variance range ensures regular payouts, which is enough to keep the attention from wandering. It is the ideal slots for newbies looking to sharpen their skills at online slots.
How Many In-Game Features Are There?
9 Masks of Fire has a Free Spins feature, which is a Bonus Wheel, and it offers scatter pays of up to 2,000x your stake for 9x, which is the jackpot.
What Is The Average Payout In The Main Game And Free Spins?
Depending on your average bet, base game wins can be anything from 3x to 10x, with the exception of the odd big win of up to 50x your stake, but don’t bank on it. The free spins with its multipliers from 1x, 2x to 3x produces wins of 7x to 20x your stake.
