The release of Mystery Express has got to be one of the best games out there, at least when it comes to telling a story. The game is provided for us by IGT and has some amazing graphics, just as expected from the provider. It has 5 reels, 3 rows and 30 ways for the player to land a winning combination. Every type of player will find something to enjoy about this mysterious treasure hunt.
The providers of the game outdid themselves with this one and managed to take the player on a trip that begins with a rich traveler dying. The old man traveled all around Europe and left a treasure somewhere. Now the player gets to help the two main characters find the jewels. The game is a journey, to say the least, and it is one that you will definitely like.
The design is vintage looking and reminds a lot of the Victorian times. The player will move from city to city and will start in London. The main scene of events is at a rooftop where the whole city along with the amazing Big Ben can be seen. The soundtrack is mysterious and fits with the theme very well. It sort of sounds sneaky which adds to the excitement.
The symbols are greatly designed just like the background is. The lower paying ones include guns, cake slices, whiskey bottles, golden rings, pocket watches, and golden necklaces. The two main characters are the highest paying symbols. The game also includes a wild and bonus symbol, both represented by their logos.
This is a medium volatility game that many players are going to love as it's perfect for long term play. The betting range has something for everyone with the minimum bet set at 0,30 and the maximum at 600 coins per spin. The game will provide decent payouts that go up to 1000 times the stake in a single spin. Not only that, but the game also offers a generous 97,03% RTP.
The features of the game will not disappoint either. In fact, they will impress you on so many levels. The graphics are amazing and not to mention the whole idea of switching locations which will keep your interest in playing the game. The feature responsible for that would be the Level Up Plus feature.
There is a meter to the left of the reels that tells you what level you are on and how far you have come. It is filled by a few different things such as the bonus symbol appearing on the reels and activating different features. As you move up in levels, you travel through different cities in Europe. As before mentioned, you start with London, which is the Traveler Level. Then there is the Voyager Level that takes you to Paris, the Adventurer Level that takes you to Venice, and the Globetrotter Level which takes place in Istanbul. There is also an Explorer level that unlocks the Mystery Box Bonus feature that awards prizes of up to 200x the stake.
The game also has a Mystery Wild Bonus feature that can be triggered randomly at any time. The mystery train comes by and turns up to 5 reels wild. This will award the player with an up to 1000 times the stake win depending on the number of wild reels.
Last but not least, is the Bon Voyage Bonus feature that is triggered when the player manages to land the bonus symbol on reels 1, 3, and 5. The player then gets to pick one of them which will reveal if the dice will be rolled 2, 3 or 4 times. Depending on the level that the player is on, they will begin their trip through the city. There are also 5 different features that can be won along the way that will award some amazing multipliers, prizes, and additional rolls.
