9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™ Review
It was not so long ago when Microgaming released the 9 Masks of Fire™ online slot, and time sure flies when you’re having fun, because the game has now been re-released with an exciting new feature: HyperSpins™. And while it’s available to play at any online casino Canada, we’re happy to say that Ruby Fortune players can enjoy it right here at our casino, where loads of other games from Microgaming are available. To create 9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™, the esteemed software provider has teamed up with a 3rd party provider, Gameburger Studios – it’s not the first and we certainly hope it’s not the last. Let’s take a look at what makes 9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™ such a unique online slot, and what sets it apart from other online casino games in Canada.
How To Play
9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™ follows the same gameplay as the original, with an African theme, 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines. The game has minimum and maximum bet sizes that range from 0.20 to 60 credits per spin. To start playing is as simple as choosing your bet size and clicking on the spin button, all of which can be found at the bottom of the screen – for mobile casino users in Canada the layout may differ slightly to accommodate smooth gameplay on the smaller screen. There is also a menu button available which will take you to a secondary screen with the symbol payouts and bonus features of the game, but we’ll touch on this next.
Fire and African masks are what 9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™ is all about, but luckily the African trinkets are not overwhelming. Instead, the symbols of the game take an old-school approach in the form of cherries, bars, dollar signs, bells and fiery sevens. There is also a diamond which is the Wild symbol and can take the place of other symbols to complete possible winning combinations. The shield with two spears is the Free Spins symbol, which we’ll get to next with an explanation of how the in-game bonus features work.
HyperSpins™ And Bonus Features
The one thing that sets 9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™ apart from other slots is the HyperSpins™ feature, which really puts the game in your hands. At any point in the game, after a spin, you’ll have the choice to Respin any of the reels, as many times as you like, for the chance of completing a possible win. Please note, though, that each Respin is charged at a cost, which is indicated below each specific reel, and only wins that involve the respun reels will be paid.
When 3 or more of the Free Spins symbols land on the reels, the Free Spins Wheel will be triggered. Here, players will get the chance to spin the wheel for a number of Free Spins with a set Multiplier. This will range from 10 Free Spins with a 2x Multiplier to 30 Free Spins with a 3x Multiplier.
So where do the masks fit into the whole game? Well, since the game is called 9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™, and we’ve already covered the HyperSpins™ aspect, it’s time to find out about those 9 masks, which play an important role. Players will notice numbers on the left-hand side of the screen (from 3 to 9), each with a different value attached, which depends on the current bet. This means that the value will increase or decrease with the bet size. Players will get paid out according to the number of masks that land anywhere on the reels during a single spin, with all 9 Masks landing obviously paying out the highest amount – definitely something to look forward to when playing!
About The Software Providers
9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™ is the result of two software providers combining forces: the esteemed Microgaming and Gameburger Studios. Microgaming has been around since 1994 and has, over the last few years, teamed up with other software providers to create exciting games for online casino players in Canada. And while 9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™ is not the first collaboration between these two software providers, we’re convinced that it won’t be the last.
