The Mummy Slot Machine Review

The Mummy is a 5 reel, 25 line video slot based on The Mummy Returns movie which was released in 2001 and stars Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The game joins a growing list of move theme slots released by Playtech including Gladiator, Rocky and Kong - 8th Wonder of the World.

Max bet on The Mummy is 25 coins per spin and coin sizes range between 0.05 and 1.00. This makes for a max bet range of between 1.25 and 25.00. We would have liked to see a 0.01 coin size but due to the way the bonuses work we can see why Playtech decided to make the smallest coin size 0.05.

On the base game the Mummy symbols are wild but only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. The wilds substitute for everything but the scattered logos, the Bonus Hunt symbols and the Free Spins symbols.

The top line win is 10,000 coins for five of the Richard 'Rick' O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) symbols. Second highest pay is 2,000 coins for five Evelyn Carnahan O'Connell (Rachel Weisz) symbols. From there you have a 1,000 coin pay for four Rick symbols and then a 500 coin pay for four Evelyn symbols or either five High Priest Imhotep or Princess Nefertiri.

After these pays the rest of the five of a kind line wins come in at between 250 and 50 coins. It's good to see that Playtech decided to avoid the now common A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols and instead went for symbols that relate to the theme.

The Mummy logos are the scatters and pay between 4X and 150X your total bet with five paying the best win. At 150X your bet you are looking at a nice 3,750 coins at 25 coins per spin. Interestingly enough the scatters do not activate any of the games features.

The Mummy has eight bonus features which once unlocked are always available. You start however with no bonuses active. To unlock the various features you need to win the Lost City Adventure Bonus which is triggered randomly at the end of any regular spin. Once triggered you move to a pick a box stage where you pick boxes to reveal prizes and unlock a new feature (View Screenshot).

Every time you unlock a bonus that feature lights up on the menu on the left side of the reels. You can then choose which feature you would like active which is a nice option to have. The various features you can win are as follows.

  • Scorpion Scatter
    This turns the Scorpion King (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) symbols into scatters with a special pay table where five pays 100X your bet.
     
  • Expanding Mummy
    This feature turns the wilds on the middle three reels into expanding wilds. This means you can get the top pay on multiple lines for up to 50,000 coins.
     
  • Scarab Attack
    This bonus triggers extra wilds whenever a wild appears on the middle reel. You get two extra wilds - one on reel 2 and one of reel 4.
     
  • Collapsing Reels
    When active this feature turns the game into a "Tumbling Reels" style of game where any winning combination on the reel explodes and more symbols drop down. This continues until no wins are on the screen.
     
  • Mummy Power
    This bonus adds multipliers to the wild Mummy symbols on the middle three reels. Getting one, two or three as part of a winning combination multiplies your win by X3, X6 or X9 respectively. This makes for a big 90,000 coin potential jackpot.
     
  • Mummy Re-Spin
    This bonus ensures that every time a Mummy appears you will get a win. Any wild Mummy on the screen on a non winning spin is held and the rest of the reels re-spin until a win appears. Extra wilds on the re-spins are not held.

As well as the reel based features there are also two other bonuses that you can unlock. These are the Mummy Hunt Bonus and the Free Spins Bonus.

  • Free Spins with Super Spin (Preview)
    Once unlocked the Free Spins symbols are added permanently to reels 1, 3 and 5. Get all three on the screen at the same time and you win 5 free spins. Any wilds that appear are added to the tally on the left of the reels. Once the five spins are complete you get one extra spin with the collected wilds (up to 9) added to the reels.
     
  • Mummy Hunt Bonus (Preview)
    Once unlocked, Mummy Hunt bonus symbols are added to the first and last reels. Get both on the screen at the same time and you win a shot at the bonus stage where you have to select left or right to move through the tomb and collect prizes. The bonus ends when either you pass ten rounds or run into a dead end.

Playing Tip : The way the that bonuses work is that once you have unlocked them at any bet level they are then unlocked for all bet levels. This means it's probably a good idea to play at the lowest coin size until you unlock all of the features.

The Mummy is an impressive game on all levels. The graphics and sounds are true to the film, the bonuses add a lot of variety and the potential jackpots are quite high. Playtech have done a great job with The Mummy and even if you've never seen the film this is one of those games that we highly recommend you check out.
