The Mask of Zorro is powered by Playtech and is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot that can be played from 40p to £400 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. Based on the 1998 swashbuckling film which starred Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Zones, it comes with a Mark of Zorro feature where Zorro slices his mark onto the reels to create up to 10 extra wilds. There’s also a Secret Cave Bonus feature where you pick candles to win up to 15 free spins or up to a 3x multiplier – you can also retrigger unlimited free spins!
Set in Mexico, the backdrop is Mexico City with flames flickering below the reels – symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as 4 of the film’s characters. You will see Captain Harrison Love (Matt Letscher), Don Rafael Montero (Stuart Wilson), Elena Montero (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Don Diego de la Vega (Anthony Hopkins) – the latter is the most rewarding giving you 12.5 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
Zorro is the wild symbol which is played by Antonio Bandera – the wild replaces all other symbols except the bonus symbol – it’s also the most lucrative symbol giving you 25 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
In terms of bonus features, there’s The Mark of Zorro feature which is randomly triggered in the base game or free spins (more on this below). After any spin, Zorro slices his mark onto the reels to create additional wild symbols – you can benefit from 4, 7 or 10 additional wilds on the reels!
The Mask of Zorro also comes with a Secret Cave Bonus feature which is triggered when you get the Candle Holder bonus symbol landing simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the base game. Firstly, you will come across 6 candles – you need to pick 2 candles to reveal free spins or a multiplier.
Beginning with 5 free spins and a 1x multiplier, you can reveal 5 free spins or a 1x multiplier. If you were to pick 2 multiplier options, you’d play 5 free spins with a 3x multiplier. You could also reveal free spins to get 15 free spins in total (with a 1x multiplier). The other option would be 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
During the free spins, look out for The Mark of Zorro feature triggering randomly – this can give you up to 10 extra wilds on each free spin. Furthermore, the bonus symbol can appear (on reels 1, 3 and 5) to retrigger the feature to give you an additional 5 free spins – there are no limits to how many free spins you can win.
I really like The Mask of Zorro – it’s quite simple but the features can be highly rewarding. With a maximum 1,000 times your stake to be won in the base game, the potential 3x multiplier in the free spins can lead to win of 3,000 times your stake on each free spin.
I found it to be a medium variance title with good features, excellent graphics and animations as well as clips from the film itself (when a character win occurs). Overall, another great movie tie-in from Playtech! I also recommend you try Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice which is superb.
