The slot takes players deep into the Guatemalan jungle. Everything from symbols to soundtrack is dedicated to the jungle theme and gives the feel of a crazy tribal adventure. Along with stone-crafted ancient sculptures, the slot displays some sparkly gems and magical bugs. The theme is definitely captivating in its mystery, let’s see how’s the rest of the slot.
Symbols and Payouts
The game depicts three types of colorful rocks as low-pay symbols – blue, green and red gems; blue being the lowest paying symbol. In the high-pay shelf sits three Wooden Masks - the same color as rocks, also blue being the lowest and red the highest paying from standard symbols. Red Wooden Mask pays 6x times the initial stake for 5 matching symbols.
The most lucrative symbol is purple Wild – it pays 10x times the stake for 5 matching symbols. As a wild symbol, it will also substitute for any other standard symbol in the game to make some additional winning combinations.
To create a winning combination, the game has to land three or more matching symbols on one of the 41 paylines.
Mega Mask slot does not offer a lot of thrilling bonus features – there are Mega Symbols, Free Spins, and the most exciting feature Mega Bet. Let’s break down each of them separately.
The Mega Mask is a randomly triggered feature, that will merge 2 or more reels and bring a minimum of 1 mega-sized symbol.
Three ‘Bonus’ symbols will take the player to Free Spins bonus round. ‘Bonus’ symbols can only land on reels 1, 3, or 5, and initially, they will give 10 free spins.
When in free spins, your greatest helper will be the fireflies – they will light up the reels and clear artifacts of the vines which hold additional spins. Once 5 artifacts have been cleared the adjacent reels will merge giving the possibility of super-sized symbols and add another 2 free spins to the existing spins.
Now, the slot runs with a 96.21% RTP default setup during the base game and limits the possible bets to 100 €/$/£. Mega Bet feature gives the player the chance to alter the gameplay. You can choose between two Mega Bet levels.
• Mega Bet level 1 – this feature increases the frequency of the super-sized Mega Symbol, and when in free spins, the fireflies will remove 5 artifacts to help to get a cleared screen faster. Also, this level increases game volatility level, RTP to 96.41% and bet limit to 120 €/$/£. This level costs 20% from the initial bet.
• Mega Bet level 2 – the second level increases the frequency of the super-sized Mega Symbol even more, and removes 9 artifacts in the Free Spins bonus round. Also, the RTP is enhanced to 96.61%, volatility set to the highest and betting limits to 150 €/$/£. This level costs 50% from the initial bet.
Mega Masks Slot (Relax Gaming): Verdict
We really dig the visual elements and the gameplay with its immersive soundtrack. Surely, the theme is fully fetched. But when it comes to the features, it seems that this game could do a lot more. The most exciting feature is the Mega Bet, which appears to be an attempt to replace the bonus buy feature (which is banned in the UK market).
Well, altogether we must say that this is a good game; but be aware of the numbers – learn the features, understand the bets and take into account that the max payout potential of this game is around 2452x.
