Those who remember The Mask, starring Jim Carrey, also probably recall the days before online casinos, where slots had physical levers and could be manipulated into calculated payouts. The movie absolutely killed it at the box office, and this slot looks to do exactly the same, by filling your wallet with more cash than you’d expect!
Fun, wacky, and a bit on the cheesy side, this slot has everything we loved about The Mask, and more!
The Mask is a hilarious comedy movie, starring Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz, released way back in 1994. If you haven’t seen it yet, then check it out: it will give the slot so much more meaning!
The 5×3 slot features a bunch of throwback symbols to the original movie, including Milo the infamous little Jack Russell, the yellow hat, and sacks of cash, as well as Jim Carrey as both Stanley Ipkiss and his alter ego, The Mask. The last of these is actually the game’s wild symbol, while the flashy “Bonus” tile marks the scatter. Five scatters on a payline also means a 500-coin payout.
The actual gameplay is relatively basic, unlike the chaotic and wild nature of the movie. In terms of settings, players can vary the graphics quality to suit their internet connection (we recommend “best” unless you’re really struggling) as well as the (largely unhelpful) feature of being able to move the position of the spin button.
Wins are semi-regular, but generally quite low value. What you’re really waiting for is a chance to trigger one of the base game bonuses, or the free spins round.
Base Game Bonuses
Randomly activated, The Mask’s alarm clock will occasionally jump on-screen, and Jim will rush on and destroy it, leaving a 2×2 grid of wilds in his wake! He can also whirlwind around the screen, transforming regular symbols into wilds. Finally, Milo will occasionally drop the mask on the screen, converting any Ipkiss symbols into wilds.
As usual, you need 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols to trigger the bonus round. If you manage, then you’ll stroll into the Coco Bongo club armed with 10, 15, or 25 free spins! You’ll also benefit from a multiplier worth up to 5x your bet amount, and the ability to retrigger spins by landing bonus symbols as follows:
- One symbol – 2 spins.
- Two symbols – 5 spins.
- Three symbols – another full round of spins.
The minimum bet of only $0.10 means this game is open to pretty much anyone, and the max $50 wager is not bad either. The game has an array of enjoyable bonuses – as you could only expect, given the subject of the game – while just as importantly for older players, it’s an immense throwback to the 90s! We like it.
