A Review of One Of The Most Popular Slots For Your Money
Welcome to this mostly beautiful 30-payline NetEnt experience featuring all the attributes of a good horror adventure: a full moon, some seriously messed up skulls, spiders, mystic energies, and an enigmatically low Jackpot of a 1000 coins. It’s all very eerie stuff, although perhaps the scariest thing is why the Jackpot is so horribly low. Hits you worse than Thor’s Hammer.
What Does It Feel Like To Play?
Mystic Maiden is a, shall we say, unusual slot that features a creepy adventure that tends to seriously get on your nerves after a while. We would say that this a classic for those who lead a healthy, socially relevant life and seriously lack adrenaline. There are quite a few spiders here along with ancient books displayed in quite a luxurious level of detail, plus a reasonable RTP, which is always nice. However, if you’re professionally into the scary stuff and know and love your creepies, this slot will probably start to annoy you soon. We like the background noise this slot produces, however: it sounds like there are zombies in your cellar.
Wins, however, are not that often to come by, and the overwhelming majority of spins just pass you by. We think that probably the real reason this slot is rumored to make the hair stand up on the back of your head is that it’s really disturbing in terms of your finances’ condition before and after. Not saying it won’t be fun overall (it’s still quite high-variance), and player experience may differ from one to another. The base game is not bad and the wilds are capable of generating occasional good income. Up to 30 free spins seems a good deal to us (plus more free spins to be won during). Overall this is okay, and the 10X multiplier is a good feature. Really, it is advisable to not place bets of substantial size here, because, as experience of many rounds with low bets shows, most spins are the dead ones.
We’re probably spoilt for choice (we mostly play on BattleStar Galactica), however.
Among its advantages is compatibility with Linux (huh?), Macs, Androids, IPads and mobiles as well as the conventional platforms, a rather generous Free Spin Feature, and background music that is immersive at first, but soon becomes supremely annoying. This game, we feel, is what happens when you try to recreate an atmospheric and stunningly unique feel of a 90s vampire flick and quit halfway, thinking that probably you’ve put in enough in terms of graphics, design and payouts. There are a few good features in this game, but it doesn’t quite feel complete as much as it could be. Think America trying to recreate Lacuna Coil, thinking “Italy is nothing special, we can do better, we’ll show them”, and look what happened. We think this slot has potential, don’t get us wrong, but overall there definitely could be more wins (plus graphics are not really what you would expect from NetEnt…is it time to change allegiances?), and everything else is just kind of…exactly what you would expect, which is kind of less than it should be. As a rule, if you’re thinking to yourself: “I would have done this better”, it should be done.
The symbols are Lights, Moon, Iron Maiden, Head, Skull, Hand with the Book, Spider, Chest and cards from Ace to 10. The symbols form 34 winning combinations.
Special Features: Wild and Scatter
Moon is the wild. The wild helps to complete the winning combination by substituting for other symbols. The wild can’t substitute for the scatter. All the wins with the wild are tripled.
Lights is the scatter. The scatter can appear anywhere on the reels to win. The scatter can’t be substituted by the wild. Three, four, five scatters win 10, 15, 30 free spins respectively. During free spins the Iron Maiden is open and reveals a multiplier up to x10 or additional free spins of up to 2 after each spin.
The coin value starts from $0.01 to $0.5. The game has 10 bet levels so the max bet is 300 coins per spin. Five Heads on an enabled payline win top jackpot in the main game which is 2,000 coins (for comparison, Cashapillar online slot offers huge wins and much less publicity).
Payout percentage: The theoretic payout of this slot is 96.6% Slot structure: Mystic Maiden is a 5 reel video slot with 30 paylines. If you like horror stories this game is for you.
A rather high-variance game, this one really provides in terms of multipliers. There are quite a few of those, and, if they luckily coincide, you can get a nice return of probably about 30 times the win. The game is big on free spins, which is a good sign, and the 3X multiplier is a welcome change when it comes (which it could do more often). You could say the game is somewhere in the range between low and high variance, and that is ok in comparison with its competition. We say okay overall, especially considering it works well on mobile, and it is a rather popular slot, although not as popular as the Bloodsuckers online slot with its meticulously well-crafted design and stylish appearance or Immortal Romance online slot with its fantastic spirit and engaging atmosphere.
Overall there is a strenuous feeling that the designer really should have put more into this slot, but, despite the fact that the payouts are quite sparse, it’s still one of the most popular slots in its category as well as being quite high-variance. We squeeze out a hesitant yes, although there are a few improvements we would have personally made to it ourselves (but maybe our biased attitude is because we’re into romcoms). If you’re like us, check out Isis Online Slot for more light-hearted fun with bigger bonuses.
