Jim Carrey, the man with the rubber face, is known for his many comedy films. And it’s his hit film, The Mask, which introduced the world to Cameron Diaz and Carrey’s versatile, zany, acting skills and brought two A-listers into the public eye. How else can the charismatic nature of the film be replicated but on a mobile slot game? Stanley Ipkiss, Tina and Milo the dog all appear as the slot’s high paying symbols, as do bags of Money, The Mask himself and the standard card symbols, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Like the fast-paced action of The Mask, the characters spin crazily across the slot’s 20 paylines to form winning combinations, with The Mask obviously wild by nature, being the Wild symbol. Clips from the movie intertwine within winning combinations, reinforcing how “groovy” this slot is.
And groovy it is, as four randomly triggered features can occur during the base game. The Alarm Block feature and In A Spin both take place even before a spin has happened. The former sees a clock bounce around the reels and if the Hammer destroys it, a 2×2 wild block is added in its place. The latter sees The Mask change into a whirlwind and swirls back and forth, turning random symbols wild. During the spins, the By The Horn feature sees The Mask appear and squeeze the horn to turn symbols wilds while the Mask Unmask feature gives Milo a chance to bark, placing Masks over a random 3×3 section on the reels. If these cover Stanley symbols…it gets wild!
Gaining entrance into the Coco Bongo nightclub is an aspiration we all have and it’s one that we strive for on The Mask slot. We can achieve it, too, when three, four or five of the Bonus Scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels. We bag 10, 15 or 25 free spins. Once we’ve got our entry into Coco Bongo and the free spins are in play, The Mask wild goes crazy on the dancefloor.
If it’s involved in any winning combination, we can receive either a x2, x3, x4 or x5 multiplier, chosen at random. If the Scatter symbol is part of a combination and appears once or twice, Milo has a turn wearing the mask (just like the famous scene from the movie) and awards up to five extra free spins. If the Scatter features three times or more, unlimited free spins can be won. As well as all this action, the four random features can also activate within the free spins.
NextGen has excelled in bringing the 90s film to current day mobile slot form. It brings the comic book craziness of the film onto five reels and can be enjoyed on desktop, mobile or tablet. With vivid colours, especially fedoras full of yellow and green, and base game features that can activate throughout, this slot gives us a better answer to The Mask’s famous question: “P, A, R, T, Y?”.
