We all love the legend about the great Zorro, a Mexican show-buckling legend who fought the criminals and the government during the Mexican war of independence. The famous masked avenger and the protector of the people has finally made it to the Playtech reels in their latest The Mask of Zorro slot.
The Return of Zorro
The first movie about Zorro with the same name from 1998 was translated to reels, and dare I say that Playtech team did a really good job here. All high paying symbols are the movie characters which are fully recognizable, and they include cast members such as Catherine Zeta-Jones, Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins.
It is redundant to mention the design quality because we already got used to superbly designed Playtech online slots, and this one is no different. Of course, the reels are set against the Mexico City backdrop with flickering flames rising upwards.
The Mask of Zorro plays across 5 reels and 40 paylines, and it has stacked high paying symbols. Naturally, the masked avenger Zorro is the Wild.
Along with superb design you will see some striking animation each time you land a winning combo. Lashed trails left on each symbol win, as well as that ever famous whipped Z that was his trademark. Whenever there is a Z sliced across the symbols, which happens randomly during the base game, you will be awarded with some additional Wilds. Zorro can leave you with 4, 7 or even 10 additional Wild symbols each time the Mark of Zorro feature is triggered.
As you spin the reels, you will also get a chance to trigger the Secret Cave bonus feature, which gets triggered when you land 3 or more Candlestick Bonus symbols on the three designated reels. This feature has 2 levels. First one will get you some instant prizes after the whip cracks, and the second one will trigger some extra spins which can be retriggered indefinitely. Of course, Z can be expected to lash out and crack symbols during the bonus feature as well.
Overall, The Mask of Zorro seems to be a simple game, with basic features but then again, it can get quite rewarding. You can win a maximum x1000 your stake during the base game, and there is the potential of x3 multiplier during the bonus spins.
So brace yourselves guys, because the legend of Zorro is still alive, and Playtech is the main one to blame. However, something tells us that you will enjoy the adventures ahead of him, and you will want to take part.
