A Night of Mystery Online Video Slots
A Night of Mystery is an online Video Slots game from the respected IGT studio featuring 5 reels, 3 rows and up to 40 paylines. It can be smoothly played on almost any desktop or mobile device, and has a betting range of 0.01 to 3 per activated payline. The game has a theoretical RTP of 94.90% and a Jackpot of 500x the original stake, and the reels can also be spun for free to allow players the chance to practice and build skills before putting any cash down. When real money is being played for, payouts are made according to a regular Payout Table and an Autoplay feature allows for the games to keep going automatically while players take care of other things at the same time.
Game Theme and Atmosphere
A Night of Mystery is set in Victorian London, with a sense of a crime caper that Jack the Ripper might be a part of and that Sherlock Holmes might solve. The dark reels are set against the backdrop of a shadowy and gloomy city alleyway, and the full moon, fog and gas lamp go further to evoke the game’s moody steampunk feel. Regular high-value reel symbols include 4 Ladies and a pipe-smoking Gentleman with magnifying glass, while the lower-value icons are the standard 10, J, Q, K and A playing card symbols in a classic font. Old-style Slots music adds more excitement to the game, while icon animations punctuate every win.
Special Symbols and Features
A Night of Mystery features the game logo as the Wild Symbol, and it can appear stacked anywhere except on Reel 1. This means it can cover the entire reel that it’s on whenever it drops, helping players to win more prizes more often. The Logo Wild Symbol can substitute for all other reel icons to create winning combinations, with the exception of the Free Games Scatter Symbol which appears only on Reels 2, 3 and 4. When 3 of these Scatter Symbols appear at once the very involved Free Spins round is triggered.
Free Spins Clue Collection Round
The Free Spins round in A Night of Mystery continues its gentleman detective theme, and requires players to become investigators and solve the mystery of what happened the night before. Players are taken to a new set of reels and given 9 free spins. There are 8 new symbols, all of which are Clues, including Red Ink, Explosives, a Boot, Lipstick, a Whip, a Knife, a Handkerchief stained with lipstick and a Mirror. Every Clue becomes a Wild Symbol for the duration of the Free Spins, and whenever a pair of Clues is spun together, such as the Lipstick and the Red Ink, a particular regular reel character that is associated with them is identified as a Suspect and also becomes Wild. Spinning 2 clues at once will also trigger 3 more Free Spins, so the round can carry on indefinitely. Each of the Character Wilds occurs on specific reels only, making each Free Spins round quite unique.
