Based on the typical story of murder in some old mansion, Murder Mystery is a slot in the format 4 x 5 reels, 40 paylines, bet levels between $ 0.01 and $ 3 per line, a wild symbol that acts as substitute and a couple of special features to give a touch of mystery and suspense that result pretty nice in this game.
The first special feature is "Murder Spins", randomly activated during base game, and consists of 2 free spins in which several symbols with a question mark appear while reels are still spinning, during the first it’s to find out what is the weapon and the second one who the murderer. After reels stop, signs reveal a weapon and murderer in each case, and in both spins profits are guaranteed. My biggest gain throughout my game was got it thanks to this feature.
The second feature is "Feature Select", consisting of a round of free spins (except Clue Hunt) where you must select 1 of 4 features for your free games as well:
- Wild Spins: 3, 4, and 5 scatters give 12, 16, and 25 free spins. Here 2 scatters appear at random positions on reels 1 to 3 in every spin, and while this may not seem a big deal, there is no reason to underestimate this feature based in my personal experience with this slot.
- Reveal Spins: 3, 4, and 5 scatters give 6, 8, and 12 free spins. In each turn a growing number of mysterious symbols (those with the question mark) appear and become one of the 6 high win symbols.
- Clue Hunt: Here you must select each of the clues to reveal one of the three weapons hidden, and each has different prize: poison = 1x bet, knife = 3x bet, and pistol = 6x bet. The game ends when you select a clue with no weapon behind, then all your winnings are collected and multiplied with a multiplier between 1x and 10x.
- Multi Spins: 3, 4, and 5 scatters give 12, 16, and 25 free spins. Murder Spins are triggered randomly during these spins and all wins are multiplied by 3. The feature is re-triggered with just 2+ scatters.
As you can see, this slot is fully loaded with action, so there is no room for boredom, and as good gambler, I give a couple of extra stars to this game for allowing a good profit while playing on demo, which do not enrich me but excite me.
