Betting Options and Bonus Features
Mystery of the Orient online slot starts on a 5x3 reel layout with various Asia-themed symbols and 243 win-ways in the base game. To activate these win-ways you need to connect 3 to 5 matching symbols. The game features a Wild symbol that will help you in creating winning combos. It is illustrated by a lucky coin and lands only on reels 2, 3, and 4. Whenever it lands, it will substitute for any regular pay symbol to reach a win-way.
Another special symbol of this Pragmatic Play release is the Mystery Symbol. It can land anywhere on the grid in both the base game and the bonus game. Once it hits it will randomly reveal one of the following symbols:
- Scatter Symbol - You win 10x, 40x, or 8,000x your stake if you land 3, 4, or 5 of these symbols at the same time.
- Mystery Wild Symbol - Substitutes for regular symbols and also has a random multiplier value of up to 25x.
- Free Spins Symbol - Triggers the free spins bonus game if there are 3 or more Free Spins symbols on the screen.
The free spins bonus game can be activated naturally or with the help of the Mystery Symbol. Hitting 3, 4, or 5 Free Spin symbols awards 15, 20, or 25 free spins, respectively. Once your bonus game begins your Mystery Symbols unlock their full potential. In addition to the previous three symbols, you’ll also be able to reveal two additional features. These are:
- Reel Size Increase Symbol - Vertically enlarges its corresponding reel by one position for the rest of the round. Each reel can be enhanced up to 6.
- Additional Free Spins Symbol - Awards a random number of additional free spins that extend your round (maximum 5).
Both of these special symbols can also land naturally and you’ll be able to retrigger the bonus game with the regular free spin symbols. However, you’ll need a minimum of 2 free spins symbols to land to get the matching amount of extra spins.
Pragmatic Play also includes a Bonus Buy feature in case you’d like to skip right into the free spins bonus round. Buying it will set you back 200x your stake but it will guarantee 3+ Scatters to land on your next spin. This ensures at least 15 free spins.
Mystery of the Orient feels a little messy and hard to understand at first but the main feature, the Mystery Symbol, is lots of fun! The payout potential is pretty high too since there are multiple win conditions and a max win cap of 8,035x. You can either win big by expanding your grid or just snatch the bag right away with the grand jackpot.
