The Mummy Slot Review
The Mummy is a Playtech-powered video slot based on the blockbuster film starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz and The Rock. This slot game has so many features it will definitely become on your favourites. It comes with a 10,000 coin jackpot too which is triggered by getting 5 Brendan Fraser wild symbols. You can play for as little as 25p a spin to as much as £125 a spin.
The game’s main feature is the Lost City Adventure Bonus feature which is activated randomly during the base game. You will then see a clip from the film and are transported to a chamber in the Lost City. You have 6 ancient crates to pick from which reveal cash. You will carry on until ‘Collect’ is revealed. You can win cash prizes ranging from 1x to 4x your stake. Anyway, you will then trigger the features in the following order:
|1||Scorpion Scatter||The Scorpion scatter symbols turns into an extra scatter which pays more. This can increase your winnings dramatically.|
|2||Expanding Mummy||The wild turns into an Expanding Wild so when a wild symbol shows up, the Expanding Wild takes over to cover the whole reel.|
|3||Scarab Attack||Wild symbols on reel 3 mean you get 2 more wild symbols randomly on reels 2 and 4 to enhance your winning potential.|
|4||Collapsing Reels||Winning symbols explode and are replaced by new symbols meaning you can win again and again when the reels collapse.|
|5||Mummy Power||Every wild multiplies the line bet by 3 so if you have multiple wilds, expect a good return.|
|6||Mummy Respin||When a wild shows up, the reel freezes with the other reels spinning. This continues until you have a winning combination.|
That’s not all! There is a Free Games feature too which is triggered by getting 3 free games symbols on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. You will then be rewarded with 5 free spins with 1 super spin. Wild are important during the free spins as they are counted and stored in the ‘Collected Wilds’ area. When the 5 free spins are complete, the Super Spin starts using the collected wilds – these are scattered on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. The only downside is that you cannot retrigger more free spins.
Finally you have the Mummy Hunt Bonus feature which is triggered by getting the Mummy Hunt Bonus symbol on the 1st and 5th reels. You then go in search for mummies which you kill for cash prizes. In every round, you will kill 2 to 10 mummies with up to 3x your line bet per kill. You can progress each round by going left or right. Choosing the wrong path will end the bonus round. If you manage to kill all 10 mummies, you get to see a clip from the movie.
The Mummy is surely a beautifully designed game with lots of bonus features. Unfortunately, this equates to the bigger wins being compromised somewhere. The biggest wins I’ve had in this game are from the Free Games feature where I’ve collected a few wilds to use in the super spin – saying that, the maximum I’ve won is just under 100 times my stake. However, if you want a nice looking slot coupled with higher variance, you can’t go wrong with Marvel’s The Avengers (also by Playtech).
