Graphics and Theme
In the wacky grinning world of The Mask, anything seems possible. The designers have tried to incorporate a feeling of erratic fun into the look and feel of the game. This is achieved using crazy, brightly coloured symbols such as the iconic yellow hat, Cameron Diaz in a love heart frame and of course, the Mask himself. The background for the base game is a cartoon depiction of the night-time street in which the Mask makes his first public debut. Bonus games, however, are in a different setting made to look like the stage in which the Mask has the final battle with the criminals at the end of the film. Big wins are accompanied by dramatic jazz music and stage lights illuminating your winning total. For music, the designers have chosen flamenco music to inject even more fun into this eccentric slot.
This game comes with four randomly triggered special Wild features. The first two in the list below are activated at random previously to any spin.
The Alarm BCock Feature- The Alarm clock for this feature is shown bouncing across the reels. If the hammer smashes the alarm clock, a 2×2 wild block will be introduced in its place.
In A Spin Feature – As you know from the film, the Mask at some points spins like the Tasmanian devil. When he does this in the context of the game, he has the ability to turn all Tina, Milo, Moneybags, Hat, A, K, Q, KJ and ten symbols into wilds on some reels. You can get help from wild symbols on up to of the three reels.
These next two features can be randomly activated at any time at the end of any base game spin.
By the Horn Feature – The Mask here appears on the reels and squeezes the horn. The horn then blasts certain symbols on the board, turning them into wilds. Symbols on up to 4 reels can be transformed.
Mask Unmask feature- Milo, the faithful dog, appears here and places the Mask over a completely random section of 3×3 on the reel set. All the Stanley symbols covered by the Mask then become wild.
The top bonus, however, is the Free Games Bonus feature, which is triggered when you get 3, 4 or 5 bonus scatters. These special scatters are represented by the Coco Bongo nightclub entrance and can land anywhere on the reels. For collecting these scatters, you will get 10, 15 or 25 free spins respectively.
Once you have won these free spins and are moved through to the feature, players should pay attention to the appearance of The Mask Wild symbol. This is because any win which involves this symbol will multiply your win by up to 5x. The multiplier is chosen at random. Players should also be on the lookout for scatters as 1 or 2 will conjure masked Milo and grant up to 5 extra free spins. Three or more scatters will also grant players more free spins with unlimited free spins to be won. Lastly, the four wild features from the base game can trigger more frequently too.
