9 Masks of Fire seems to borrow some inspiration from Africa’s culture and tribes.
This slot from Microgaming is set up on 5 reels & 20 active lines. I had the opportunity to play this slot and some of the features that I came across include wilds, a Jackpot Meter, free spins, multipliers and scatters.
9 Masks of Fire has a top jackpot of 2,000xs ($120,000), which is a little higher than most other slots from Microgaming. The game is of medium volatility with an RTP of 96.24%.
In 9 Masks of Fire, you need to spend at least $0.20 per spin but you can go as high as the maximum which is $60 per spin. This indicates about $3 per line bet.
I came across the Wilds feature which at first appeared a basic but which I later came to find out was one of the best features in this slot. This Wild feature has the same functions ad with other slots and its main duty is to increase your odds of forming a winning.
The Wild symbol appears in the image of a Diamond but it is marked with a Wild logo on the bottom part.
For the scatters, they appear in the form of the Mask. Try to get as many scatters as possible since the meter on the left side of the slot will pay you accordingly. To enjoy some rewards with the scatter, you will need to get between 3 and 9 symbols.
The symbols can either be stacked or just the regular ones. The Mask helps you to get a number of rewards like 1x to 2,000x total stake. However, the rewards are based on the number of symbols that you manage to use to trigger them.
There is another scatter that comes in the form of a Shield with Spears. Remember, 9 Masks of Fire is based on tribes and culture and this the shield and spear are used in the slot to symbolise tribes.
The shield and spear must be in the middle three reels of the game as this is the only way the symbol will enable you to access a wheel. With the slot’s wheel, you can spin it to win between10 and 30 free spins.
Microgaming has done well with the African theme and especially in terms of design and quality. I particularly loved the slot’s end results and the great African culture which is well symbolised in this slot by symbols like the African diamonds, the Mask of Fire as well as the tribal Shields With Spears. The slot as other classic symbols like Bells, cherries, Fire 7s, Bar logos, and Dollar Signs.
9 Masks of Fire is a fun game and I got to enjoy the slot even though I was not quite impressed with the story the game was trying to tell. I liked the fun features and the slot’s medium volatility work well with its top jackpot of 2,000xs.
