Mystic Secrets Slot Review
The Mystsic Secrets slot has become one of my favorite Novomatic slots games
ever since I stumbled across it on a Gaminator machine
in Napoleon's Casino under the Empire on Leicester Square.
It is unique but does remind me a lot of another favorite of mine, Katana
and both games are highly volatile (which isn't uncommon for Novomatic games, let's be honest here!) which will go a long way to explaining why the Star rating is low: most players prefer slots that aren't this volatile. Not me though. I love 'em :)
With Mystic Secrets, it is all about the bonus feature where you get 2 reels wild guaranteed on each of 10 spins. You can in fact get more than 2 reels but I have only ever seen 3 a handfull of times and never, ever 4! And I have played this game quite a lot both online and in land-based.
It's not a game you can be too brave with: hitting anything worth talking about in the base game is nigh on impossible and even 5 picture symbols don't pay as much as on games like Book Of Ra Deluxe
or Lucky Ladys Charm
however, that's not what you play Mystic Secrets for.
It is rare to get under 50x in the bonus feature and I'm actually disappointed when it awards under 100x as that is fairly common - and some! But the feature doesn't happen very often, retriggers are minimal and without the free spins feature your bankroll will die very quickly on most sessions.
The Mystic Secrets slot is a great game if you are a high-variance slots fan and can take the pain of the base game. If you can't and you need more entertainment, avoid it like the plague and perhaps consider sticking to slots like Sizzling Hot Deluxe
or Just Jewels Deluxe
where win potential from the base game is what it is all about.
