Playtech offers us in The Mask of Zorro a slot machine with a branded theme, the basis for it coming from the hugely popular 1998 film, of which stars like Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones were a part of.
In The Mask of Zorro, 40 pay lines will be available for combinations to form on, once the 5 reels have stopped spinning. The game’s top prize seems to reach a top value of $30,000. As for the features, these include wild symbols, bonus features, scatters, free spins and even multipliers.
Betting and Prizes
40 coins are selected for every round of the game. While picking the value that they will have, you automatically change the total bet as well. You start from $0.01 and go up to $10 in the line bet, and the total bet changes from $0.40 to $400.
If we’re looking only at the base game, then the best you can do is $10,000 from a single combo of five wilds, which will pay 1,000 coins. The free spins can have multipliers though, so at that point you’re looking at rewards as high as $30,000.
The Mask of Zorro Slot Features
The symbol where we’re seeing Zorro is the one that ends up acting as the substitute, and at the same time as the trigger for the top jackpot if it forms a combo with other wilds. There is no possibility for these wilds to substitute for bonus symbols, but the regular ones are fair game.
The slot has a random feature which can trigger as you play, where Zorro slices the Z mark on the reels. The slice will add 4, 7 or 10 additional wilds on the reels for that particular spin.
The 1st, 3rd and 5th reels will get Bonus Candle symbols, which when together can trigger for you a bonus game with two levels. The feature in question is called Secret Cave. You start off from the 1st level, where you have to crack your whip two times, in order to reveal prizes. The 2nd level is the one that decides for you the number of free spins and the multiplier.
Depending on your luck, you could end up with 5 free spins and a 3x multiplier, 10 free spins with 2x multipliers, or 15 free spins with 1x multipliers. The free spins will begin next, and at this point you get a chance to win an even bigger top jackpot than it is possible in the base game. The free spins can be retriggered with another set of three Bonus symbols, plus the Mark of Zorro can deliver as many as 10 additional wilds on the reels.
Theme & Design
The Mask of Zorro is both the name of the slot machine and that of the film based on which it was made. Released in 1998, the film came after a couple of TV series, such as Zorro between 1957 and 1959, or the similarly named one between 1990 and 1993. There was another film, called The Legend of Zorro, which aired in 2005. The film from 1998 is one of the most popular though, since it had huge names among its cast, those actors now being visible among the slot’s symbols. You see images of Antonio Banderas (masked), along with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins, to mention just the most important ones. Elegant playing cards, made out of gold, are the ones that have the lowest payouts.
The Mask of Zorro is a branded game that’s going to be easy to enjoy, it will pay relatively well, and feature wise it is also a good choice.
