You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for some fun, because today we’re going behind the reels of Mask of Amun. This is one of the latest online slot games to come out of the Microgaming stable, and does so with a raft of bonus features that all players have every chance of triggering, at any time. Added to this, the base game carries a collect feature for possible instant cash prizes, while the most all players will have a shot at taking home is, up to 5,000x your stake.
The casino games developer that created Mask of Amun is Fortune Factory, but in actual fact, this is a sub-studio belonging to Microgaming. We've seen enough Egyptian slots online to consider ourselves experts on the subject, and there isn't anything special about the look and feel here. During the base game, you'll see that sun icons land on reels 1 and 6, and if a sun lands on the same spin as a cash symbol, or a jackpot in the minor, major or mega, this is collected and paid to you. The mega is worth 2,500x your stake.
The most any player will be able to potentially win is 5,000x your wager, with a wagering window starting at a minimum of 0.20 and capping at a maximum of 50 per spin.
The symbols are no surprise in Mask of Amun, as it's an Egyptian themed online slot. The lower paying ones are playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A, while the higher value ones are a selection of Egyptian themed symbols.
There are a few extra icons that can land in the sun, jackpot, cash and scatter symbols. There's also a wild that substitutes all regular symbols to assist in making up winning combos.
In order to trigger the bonus feature, you need to land 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatters on the same spin, which will open up a choice of 2 different bonuses that you can play. It's either a free spins game, or a game of what is called Gold BlitzTM . The Gold BlitzTM feature sees only the sun collect, cash and jackpot symbols spin and land, while a win/collect is guaranteed on every spin. If choosing free spins, the most free spins come from landing six scatters, which awards 30 free spins with a 5x multiplier applied to all wins.
The bonus features and added value is what really make Mask of Amun a game worth playing. However, even the base game can be more rewarding, thanks to the sun on cash and jackpot symbols. The only thing we feel could have made this one of the most enjoyable online slot machines we've reviewed this year would be a different theme.
