Superb feature-packed slot with 96.46% RTP, medium variance, and 40 fixed paylines. Choose your own feature in the bonus round, including high variance ‘multi spins’ with up to 25 extra plays ALL with 3x mutlipliers!
Crime-themes are all the rage in May 2018 and following on from Thunderkick’s Wild Heist at Peackock Mansion, Playtech bring us this 5 reel and 40 fixed payline slot, Murder Mystery.
Both games have a similar style in fact – an old English house set in the country, and cartoon characters – in this case a moustachioed detective and three shady looking murder suspects. In Playtech’s game your aim is to reveal the murderer, and in doing so, unlock wilds, free spins and multipliers.
What’s cool about Murder Mystery is that you can choose a feature with your preferred volatility in the bonus round – low, medum or high. The RTP for the game comes in at 96.46% on average.
There’s plenty of action to enjoy in the features – including up to 25 free spins with extra wilds, a pick me round with up to 10x multipliers, and lots of random transforming symbols.
Let’s find our more …
This game has some pretty exciting features and the action comes pretty thick and fast. Here’s what to look out for.
These can occur at any point in the base game of in any of the Multi Spins features. There are two types and they both GUARANEE WINS!
Weapon Spin – As many as 12 ?s are added to the reels and during your spin will transform to reveal the same weapon, creating wins.
Murderer Spin – Same as the Weapon Spin, but during the Free Spins round up to 12 ?s are added which transform to reveal the high value murderer!
This is the main feature in the game and it comes when three or more Detective scatters land anywhere on the reels. When they do you get to pick from four possible features – with varying volatility:
Wild Spins (low volatility) – 3 scatters give you 12 free spins, 4 gives you 16 free spins and 5 gives you 25 free spins. During the spins 2 wilds will appear on reels 1 to 3.
Reveal Spins (medium volatility) – 3 scatters give you 6 free spins, 4 give you 8 and 5 give you 12 spins. During each free spins up to 12 ‘?’s will appear on the reels and transform into any random symbols (including the wild).
Clue Hunt (medium volatility) – Head to the garden to hunt for the murder weapon. You’ll be presented with a choice of 12 question marks. Behind each is a weapon (or an end-game puff of smoke!). Poison bottles are 1x, knives are 3x and guns are 6x. If you reveal the puff of smoke then the feature ends, and each cash prize total for each weapon is subject to a 10x.
Multi Spins Feature (high volatility) – 3 scatters give you 12 free spins, 4 give you 16 spins and 5 give you 25 free spins. PLUS ALL WINS are subject to a 3x!
Also … during Multi Spins the Murder Spins feature can randomly trigger, giving you 12 ‘?’s on a spin which then transform into another symbol.
AND … you can pick up extra free spins during the Multi Spins feature as 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters landing on the reels will give you 3, 12, 16 or 25 EXTRA free spins in your cache!
This is a feature-packed affair with lots going on. Of course, you can’t make a slot game pay out at will, but by way of a re-cap here are the key points to look out for when chasing those wins.
This is one of our favourite releases for May 2018. The basics are all there – nice theme, great graphics and animations – and on top of all that you have a really strong set of features, with even the choice to pick for yourself which you want to go for! The win potential is best in the Multi Spins round, but it comes with a higher risk of course, so choose carefully. Good luck!
