The Mask, as is popular with the 90s kids and thousands of fun-loving adults, is an American superhero comedy movie which was a huge hit for providing great graphics and entertainment. Though the movie is quite old – having been released in 1994, if the video game slot developed by NextGen Gaming contains a similar level of graphics, it can surely attract crowds. This game will surely do that as the main characters, plotline and graphics are retained aptly.
It has a 5X3 layout (5 reels and 3 rows) consisting of symbols which are undoubtedly the main attraction in the game. The symbols include the main characters in the movie like Stanley Ipkiss (the hero), Tina Carlyle (the heroine), Ipkiss’ dog Milo and the Masked Stanley Ipkiss. In addition to the above picture symbols, we also have the card symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also other interesting symbols like bags of cash and coins, a yellow hat and a bonus symbol.
Players can also adjust their total-bet value by selecting the settings and choosing their choice. The ‘Bet-Up’ and ‘Bet-Down’ buttons can be used to increase or decrease the bet-value by 0.1 values at a time respectively. The auto-play feature makes it even easier for players to spin and the coin-value option enables the player to decide the value of coin wagered against win. The many special features in this game, involving graphics and images and which are based on the actual movie definitely uphold the excitement element in the game. For instance, there is an alarm feature, which when smashed by Ipkiss leads to a 2X2 wild block on the screen. Other similar features include the dog Milo opening a 3X3 block of Wild symbols and the Mask squeezing a Horn to give rise to Wild symbols.
The Mask symbol itself acts as the wild symbol and landing 2 or more together will shell out good returns. It can replace all other symbols and has got maximum precedence. The bonus symbol is capable of triggering free spins leading to the Coco Bongo Club and the multiplier escalates the payouts thereby increasing the returns in the game. The value goes up to 30,000 times a player’s stake whenever free spins are activated. At an RTP of 96.5%, this game provides returns as well as entertainment to the players. The high-paying image/picture symbols are sure to give high returns and it also depends on the stakes players are ready to bid.
Personally, this game brought back the memories of that funny movie watched in childhood and I was quite excited. The working of the game is quite simple, be it for first-time players or regular players. The sound theme is contextual and humorous. So, for all the people who wished for a mask after watching this movie, the game is sure to satisfy you at least virtually.
