9 Masks of Fire is a fantastic online slot brought to us by Microgaming and Gameburger Studios. It has a theme made from a mix of tribal themes and a touch of classic symbols. The graphics are incredible, with flames igniting all around the 5x3 grid with 20 paylines and deep red hues in the background. Tribal sounds and music can be heard as we play, creating a sense of drama.
Medium variance, diamond wilds, mask scatters, and free spins wheel with multipliers are a big part of the game, and they aren't shy, either. Other symbols that help us towards the top prize of 2,000x the bet are 7s of varying numbers, bars, cherries, bells and a dollar sign, while we can also trigger free spins infinitely, with a bit of luck.
They play the 9 Masks of fire slot on 5 reels and 3 rows, making a 15-tile grid with 20 paylines and a prize meter along the left of the reels. Below the reels are the easy-to-use and familiar controls with options to adjust the bet per spin, max bet, auto-play, spin and quick spin.
The symbols comprise various 7s that are on fire, $, bar, bell and cherries. In addition to these symbols, we also have the masks that are on fire and which will award a cash payout for landing up to 9 on the reels at the same time. The special symbols are the wild, which substitutes for any symbol except the masks and the free spins. Last, the free spins start the bonus feature when they land on the grid.
Betting levels range from just 0.20 per spin all the way to 240.00 per round. This will appeal to those playing on a more conservative budget and high rollers who prefer to wager the maximum per spin to hit the bigger payouts.
To trigger the bonus round, we need to first land three or more scatter symbols represented by a shield. Once we land these symbols, we need to spin a big wheel to determine the number of free spins we get and the multiplier for the free spins round.
We can win from 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier to 30 free spins and a 3x multiplier. The multiplier will apply to all wins except the mask scatter wins. The free spins can be re-triggered, which will equal the number of free spins originally awarded.
9 Masks of Fire is a fast-paced, medium variance slot that will have us coming back for more, time and time again. The theme, flames and dramatic soundtrack add an incredible amount of energy to the gaming sessions. And as a spoiler, the animation when landing five or more masks is just brilliant. The gameplay is uncomplicated and highly rewarding, with a top prize of 2,000x the bet and to help us get there are a good number of bonus features.
