Betfred Casino, one of the world's most popular and trusted online gaming sites, has just released what could very well be the best game released all year: The Mummy. Based off the highly popular horror movie franchise of the same name, The Mummy is a Playtech Casinos video slot that takes players into the depths of ancient Egyptian ruins. This game is filled with hard-hitting action, impressive graphics, and plenty of bonus features to keep the thrills coming.
Basic Pay Layout
The Mummy is certainly far from typical, but the game does use the conventional five-reel video slot layout. The game comes packed with 25 paylines, but you are free to customise your wager by reducing the number of lines and/or adjusting your coin size. Like the case is with all video slots, the basic objective is to obtain matching runs of symbols from left-to-right along any active paylines. With Wild symbols to help you out, standard line wins should be fairly frequent.
Of course, a game based off one of the most famous film franchises of all time certainly has a lot more to offer than just matching up symbols. Put on your adventurer's cap and get ready for some of the most intense bonus rounds the Web has ever seen.
The most commonly found special features in The Mummy happen within the base game itself. The game may, at any time, award you with your choice of in-game feature. Below is a quick summary of each to help you choose:
- Scorpion Scatter: The Scorpion King (played by "The Rock") will be added to the reels. If he shows up enough times in any scattered position, he will seriously boost your win.
- Scarab Attack: If, after activating this feature, you get a wild Mummy on the third reel, watch out! A swarm of scarabs will occupy the second and fourth reels to add even more wilds. Watch winning combinations explode and get replaced by new ones indefinitely!
- Expanding Mummy: Select this feature and hope for wild Mummies galore. All Mummies that appear will expand across their reel, greatly increasing your chance for a big win. To make it even more lucrative, you'll enjoy a cumulative multiplier for any combination that uses multiple wild symbols.
- Mummy Re-Spin: Frustrated by getting wild symbols that don't pay out? Choose the Mummy Re-Spin, and if a wild Mummy appears on the reels, watch the game hold the wild and continue to spin until you get at least one winning combination.
Free Games with Super Spin
Even something as common as free spins is made extreme in The Mummy. To activate the game's Free Games round, you'll need to get 3 bonus symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5. Once you initiate it, you'll be granted 5 free spins. Throughout these spins, you will notice that your wilds are collected and stored in a panel on the left. After the five spins are completed, these wilds will storm out and spread across the middle 3 reels. You will then be granted one final Super Spin with a whole bunch of winning potential.
Prepare yourself: this feature is definitely not for the faint of heart. If you get a Mummy Hunt Bonus symbol on the 1st and 5th reel, you'll enter the deepest chambers of the pyramids in the hopes of destroying some evil mummies. Stealthily dart from passage to passage and conquer mummies as you come across them. The more you kill, the more you plunder: up to 3x your line bet for each massacred mummy!
Lost City Adventure
This last and most coveted bonus round can only be activated by chance. If you're lucky enough, you will find yourself getting warped into the fabled Lost Egyptian City. You will then be presented with a number of ancient crates, each containing a random cash prize between 1x and 4x your total bet. As long as you don't find the "Collect" symbol, you can keep on racking up those wins from this hidden kingdom.
