NetEnt Just Launched Fantasini Master of Mystery Pokie
Fantasini Master of Mystery, is a new slot from the Swedish games developer Net Entertainment. There is not much we can say about Net Entertainment that has not already been said. They are absolute giant of the online slot world. Raking in approximately 31% of the European online casino market share.
The company was born in 1996, out of Scandinavia’s land based operator known as Cherry, after land based slot machines were ruled too dangerous and made illegal. It’s very important that your government tells you where you can spend your money. From the ashes rose a phoenix, of online gaming. Net Entertainment, make lovely looking games.
There is talk of things like NetEnt variance, which is apparently a way, they write their algorithms to stop players winning a lot more than they started with. We think this is a case of tall poppy syndrome and in our vast experience playing online slots have found Net Ent games to be among, if not, the best.
What we like
Fantasini Master of Mystery has a magic theme. It is not a fantasy bread of magic, but that of a stage magician. We like what they have done with this theme. It is an original theme, created just for this slot game. They have mastered the aura of mystery. The background, is a hazy green and pink smoke with lights illuminating it.
The dark background and theme are coupled with some mysterious music, which really makes a difference. If you don’t believe us turn off the music and play the slot. It has an entirely different feel to it. The game has a Linking Reels feature. How this works, is a golden chain borders two reels adjacent to each other and links them together. When they spin, they will show the same symbol.
This feature can expand at random to include 3,4 or even all 5 reels. We like that this is a free win. If the first reel is part of the link and you have three or more linked reels, this is a guaranteed win. Otherwise you just have to hope that the first reel plays nicely and lines up with the combination Fantasini gifted you.
The Magician Symbol is a Wild, and as this game does not have any special symbols, it will substitute any symbol. We like that the symbols all have a relatively high value and there is no sudden drop off in worth, after the picture symbols. The lowest symbols all have one of two values, which we prefer to a gradual decline in value. This game has an impressive jackpot. There are up to 270,000 coins to be won.
We guess that it must be won with the locking reels feature. If all 5 reels lock and the player lands the 3 highest value symbols. That is the three highest five in a rows, all paid out at once. This game has 243 ways to win, so landing a combination anywhere on the reels will be a winning pay line.
What we do not like
This game is lacking features. We would give Net Ent a pass, because the Linking Reels feature is quite lucrative. But some of their other new slots have twice the features of this game, and we know they could at least sneak some free spins into the game.
We do not like that the Max Bet button is right next to the Spin Button and also spins the reels. We would advise caution, around that button. We accidently pressed it a few times while testing the game, and you don’t always want to bet max.
Is this game worth playing?
Fantasini Master of Mystery is another great slot from Net Ent. It would be nice if the game had some more features. But the Linking Reels feature is really good and there is an impressive jackpot to be won. We recommend you go give this game a play.
