Being a game starring the legendary Zorro, you won’t be surprised to learn that the slot features romantic, dramatic music, darkness, and an air of mystery. With its beautiful character portraits and ultra-smooth reel animation, The Mask of Zorro looks like the total package.
But how does it perform?
The game’s design is based heavily on the 1998 movie, from the colour scheme to the faces of the characters decorating the reels. It’s both exciting and intriguing, and exactly what you’d expect from a Zorro slot!
The Mask of Zorro is a 5-reel, 40 payline game. You can’t vary the number of paylines, and the bet amounts are quite high compared to most game: minimum of $4, and a maximum of $4,000 per spin! Needless to say, if you’re able to bankroll that amount, you could be in for some gargantuan wins.
The Zorro symbol (the game’s wild) is the highest-value, worth 1,000x the line bet for 5 on a payline. The character symbols are also pretty valuable:
- Captain Harrison Love – 500x
- Don Rafael Montero – 225x
- Elena Montero – 300x
- Don Diego de la Vega – 200x
More importantly, we have the bonus symbol, which is the key to unlocking the free spins bonus round! Players need to land 3 scatters, one each on reels 1, 3 and 5. One cool base game feature is the Mark of Zorro: it is randomly activated, and slices through the reels creating 4, 7 or 10 additional wilds!
The free spin round (or Secret Cave Bonus) is, as with most games, where you’re going to make the real money. It comes in two parts.
First, you’ll encounter six candles: you must select two of them, to reveal either free spins or a multiplier amount. Since the bonus round starts with 5 free spins, this round means you can get either:
- Ten extra spins, 1x muliplier
- Five extra spins, 2x multiplier
- Zero extra spins, 3x multiplier (on the original 5)
During the bonus round, the Mask of Zorro feature can still activate, and it will almost certainly cause a major win. If the bonus symbols fall again on reels 1, 3, and 5, you’ll be rewarded with 5 more spins. This round can, in theory, continue indefinitely!
With a maximum of 1,000x stake available in the base game, and there up to a whopping 3,000x in the bonus round, there’s a lot to play for with The Mask of Zorro. We recommend players give it a try, especially fans of the original movie!
