Mystic Orbs Slot Features

What is the max win in the slot Mystic Orbs?

You can win up to 10000X the bet.

What features are available in the slot Mystic Orbs?

The features are Wild Symbol, Cluster Wins, Avalanche, Wild Orbs, Feature Row, Bonus Game and X-iter.

Charged Orb

Wild Symbol

The game's wild symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols, except for the orb symbols.

Cluster Wins

When you land 5 or more of the same symbol type in a cluster, a cluster win is created, where the symbols can be linked to each other both horizontally and vertically. When cluster wins occur, the Avalanche feature is activated.

Avalanche

When you create cluster wins, the Avalanche feature is activated. Then all the symbols in the winning combination will disappear from the reels and new symbols will fall down to cover the empty positions. As long as new wins are created, the Avalanche feature continues to remove winning symbols and place out new symbols.

Wild Orbs

Within this slot there are two different orbs, namely the normal orb and the charged orb. These are both wild symbols and have different functions to contribute with during the game. Above the reels is a feature row and when the normal orb lands the feature above it will be activated, with when the charged orb lands all features will be activated. When you land these orbs, they become collected. If the orb does not contribute to a winning combination, it will explode and remove all adjacent symbols, triggering the Avalanche feature.

Feature Row

The feature row is placed above the normal reels and at the beginning of the spins, the 5 different positions will receive different features or remain empty. Once you manage to activate a feature, it will disappear from its position, and you can then get a new feature placed out or an empty position. There are 6 different features that you can activate, and they do the following:

Upgrade = This will randomly select a symbol type that will be turned into higher paying symbols or wild symbols. Where it can be active for up to 3 Avalanches.

Orb Siege = This will select one of the Orb's nearby symbols, where it will replace up to 4 symbols surrounding it with wilds or instances of the chosen symbol. By activating multiple of this Orb Siege, the replacement pattern will be expanded, where it can be up to 4 instances outwards from the Orb.

Orb Payout = This will generate a win by applying a multiplier to the bet.

Multiplier = This will add its value to the total win multiplier, which is applied to the cluster wins and Orb Payouts.

Extra Life = This will give you an extra symbol drop when no more wins are generated.

Bonus = This will activate the Bonus Game.

Bonus Game feature

Bonus Game

When you land orb symbols, they will be collected and when you collect 5 orb symbols, the Bonus Game will be activated. You can also activate the Bonus Game using the Feature Row. You are then greeted with 5 free spins, and you receive 5 extra free spins each time you collect 5 orb symbols within the bonus game. Within this feature, the win multiplier will remain during the spins, giving you the opportunity to get it really big.

X-iter

You can choose to take advantage of the X-iter mode by making larger payments, where you can then take advantage of various features instantly. These cost and do the following:

5X = You will take part in 1 spin, where you then land a normal Orb and activate at least one feature.

25X = You will take part in 3 spins, where the received multiplier stays between these spins.

50X = You will take part in 1 spin, where all orbs are charged orbs.

100X = You will activate the Bonus Game feature.

500X = You will activate the Bonus Game feature, where all orbs are charged orbs.

Mystic Orbs Slot Conclusion

As the name reveals, this slot revolves around a couple of mystical orbs and here we also get to meet the dragon Yinglong, which guards’ huge treasures. It is a slot that has a 5X5 reel setup, where it is filled with many lucrative features that one can take advantage of during the spins. Clusters of 5 or more of the same symbol type award wins and thus also activate the Avalanche feature, which can result in a spin being very long-lived. With the help of the wild symbols, more winning clusters can be created, but it is definitely the Feature Row that helps create the most excitement.

On this Feature Row, there will be 6 different features that you can take advantage of, and you activate these by either landing normal orbs or charged orbs, which also acts as wild symbols. Just like you have seen before in their Tropicool, amazing winning combinations can be created with the help of these features, where you can get big boosts to the wins, extra lives and bonus activations, among other things. What is particularly entertaining about this slot is that big bonanzas can be created already within the base game, but just like in other slots, you get to take part in better conditions in the bonus game. Then the win multiplier will stay during the spins, which can help generate some hefty wins along the spins.

The game's design has had its symbols and effects properly polished, with a luxurious feel permeating the spins. Just like getting a snowball rolling, the spins can quickly escalate to become long-lasting but more importantly, become profitable once it gets going. Once again, there's a good size to the max win that you get to enjoy here and the slot itself is very cleverly crafted, with well put together features with an exciting theme to go with it. They have certainly had a fantastic year of games and there are few things to actually complain about, where they have looked over every detail very carefully and where lovely music always accompanies. If there's one thing you wish they would improve within future years, however, it's increasing the game's RTP a tad, as at 95.0% it's a bit low.

Mystic Orbs is a slot where, with the help of a very lucrative Feature Row, we can scoop up big wins, where its lovely design and captivating music help to raise the mood even further.
