Mystic Mirror takes the player on a trip through a magical land, the sort of place where unicorns aren’t out of place. In fact, there are two in the background image and one as a symbol. Red Rake Gaming is the company that has released this particular slot, and it’s proposing some unusual features inside.
5 or 6 reels are available to you, depending on the kind of wager that you’re willing to use. You have 10 active lines either way, and their combinations will pay at most $22,500. It’s not getting the best RTP around, being set to 95.2%, while for its features the game announces the presence of a wild/scatter, of free spins and special symbols that can expand on the reels.
Betting and Prizes
For the betting options of Mystic Mirror, the developer chose a somewhat unusual system, which doesn’t make much sense at a quick first glance. You wager for 10 lines anywhere from $0.08 to $15 per spin if you only want the first 5 reels active, and if you activate the 6th reel as well then you are required to spend twice as much. You end up with maximum bets of $30, but with an extra reel and bigger payouts as well.
The prizes are quite different between the 5 reel and the 6 reel version. The jackpot is worth 3x as much if it has 6 symbols in it, rather than 5, and it can reach a top value of $22,500 per winning combination then. Some of the smaller wins have an even bigger multiplier, up to 5x more money coming through them.
Part of a game’s story is being told through its RTP as well, and Mystic Mirror has one that’s below average for a recent game. It’s set to 95.2%.
Mystic Mirror Slot Features
First and foremost, I’d say that the thing that has the biggest impact on the way Mystic Mirror is played is that 6th reel. It doesn’t do anything too special, it just adds that one extra reel, so that bigger and better paying combinations can form. To activate it, you just need to click on Activate, a button from the 6th reel.
The only feature symbol that’s implemented in the base game is the wild, which is also a scatter. You get paid by it as well, but less than you would receive from the best 6-symbol combo. It acts as a substitute, so usually it’s going to be helpful in creating a new combo.
If the game happens to land 3 to 6 scattered Mirror Wilds on the reels, it will offer you 10 free spins. As the free games start, the slot picks a random symbol to turn into a special icon. Its extra ability will be the possibility of expanding on the reels, which could lead to an entire screen filled with such symbols, so 10 jackpot prizes could be delivered this way.
Theme & Design
Once you see the unicorn appear among the slot’s symbols, I think that the theme will quickly become apparent to you. It’s magic that gets a big role here, though with the exception of that magical creature there isn’t much to support it. The symbols have a Magic Mirror, a Young Woman, a magic ring, some kind of artifact and lots of fairytale-style playing cards.
Mystic Mirror has some unique things to give us, but overall it’s not one of the best Red Rake slots I’ve seen to date.
