9 Masks of Fire Slot
Launched just last year, 9 Masks of Fire is one of the latest five-reel slots by leading online casino software developer, Microgaming.
This progressive jackpot online slots game is inspired by the African continent and is crammed with features including Wilds, Scatter symbols, free spins, and multipliers, among others. With a hefty 7 500x jackpot and availability on both mobile and desktop platforms, 9 Masks of Fire is already drawing fans in droves.
9 Masks of Fire is a medium-volatility slot with a generous RTP of 96.24%. It has 20 paylines and is played across 5 reels with 3 rows. It is an uncomplicated game in which the paylines are fixed and run from left to right.
Although wagering is set at 20 coins per spin, coin denominations can be adjusted to lower or increase risk (and, inversely, potential rewards). Available coin values range from 0.01 to 3 credits, with a maximum bet of 60 and a max payout of 7 500x.
Theme and Symbols
While 9 Masks of Fire has the familiarity of a traditional fruit machine – complete with the usual cherries, 7s, and the like for symbols – it has received a fresh coat of paint in the form of a tribal-style theme and layout.
The colour scheme is dominated by shades of gold and ochre and the online slot’s reels spin to the sound of African drums against the backdrop of a simple tribal pattern. Symbols in keeping with this theme are the Mask scatter and the Shield Scatter, each of which presents its own fun rewards.
The Scatter depicting a traditional African mask delivers instant cash prizes with up to 2 000 times the wager, depending on the number of symbols landed. The most coveted combination in 9 Masks of Fire is, fittingly, all 9 Masks on the reels, which delivers the 2 000x payout.
Meanwhile, the mighty shield Scatter appears exclusively on Reels 2, 3 and 4 and triggers the game’s free spins feature when all three are landed. Before each free spins feature, slots players must spin a special wheel to reveal the bonus offers (up to 30) and multiplier (up to 3x) in play. As many as 30 additional free spins can be unlocked if more scatters are landed during the feature.
Best Ways to Win
Over and above the nine-mask combination and its 2 000x payout, the biggest win that 9 Masks of Fire online slots Canada players can hope for is 7 500 in a single spin during the free spins feature, enabled by the multipliers in play.
What We Like Least
It’s not ideal that it is so hard to land the nine-mask requirement for the 2 000 win and the same applies to triggering the slot’s bonus features.
What We Like Best
We love the fact that you can win up to 2 000x the bet with Mask Scatters, never mind all the freebies and multipliers in the free spins feature that further up the winning potential.
The theme is also simple yet fun and it’s great that we can play 9 Masks of Fire on both desktop and mobile platforms.
