The wombat says: We all know the stories about the Bermuda Triangle; that ghoulish place where all those ships and planes vanished. And we all know it wouldn’t be long before those slot wizards at NextGen got hold of the theme and turned it into a reel-spinning saga, too! It’s a spooky old world- just play the Halloween slot or Psycho if you don’t believe me!
Yes Wombat Fans, when vessels disappear off the radar near Bermuda to never appear again: legend has it they have joined the ranks of the Bermuda Mysteries. Let’s dust off our flying goggles and try to see what the ruddy hell is going on there.
Look and Feel
The graphics in The Bermuda Mysteries slot are decidedly dated when you compare it to the likes of the Neon Jungle slot but this is all part of this game’s retro charm.
The reels are set against the very scary scene of a churning stormy ocean and a thunderous green sky, and flanked by the rusty metal frame of a boat. Meanwhile, the soundtrack to the slot will put you on edge with the crashing and soaring dramatic percussion.
The Bermuda Mysteries Slot Game Play
The Bermuda Mysteries slot is a 5 reel, 3 row 25 payline game just like others such as the Wheel of Wealth slot– that one is from Microgaming.
The high value icons are all adventure themed with a lifejacket, a long-distance radio set, an old fashioned plane, and a ship. The lower value icons are the usual playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K & A.
This slot’s Wild is an old-style pilot complete with googles and flying hat. The Scatter is diverting with not 1 but 2 up for capture across the reels, each take you to a different bonus game. These are the symbols of a golden Navy badge complete with an anchor and map- Ships ahoy!
If can you land that golden badge anywhere on the reels you can benefit from 12x free spins- now those are some numbers that this Wombat can handle! During the Free Spins, a radar icon turns up on reel 5 and it dish out a lucrative little gift; a multiplier that increases by 1x each time it lands.
Land 3x of the map icons on the reels in the base game or during in the Free Spins mode and you’ll set off this mysterious extra feature.
In the Rescue Bonus the player is (rather disconcertingly) transported to a radar centre to use a map to locate those objects lost in the Bermuda Triangle. If you manage to locate a ship or a plane then you can win prizes, but finding other mysterious objects that include a flying saucer, a broken compass or strange phenomena including a wormhole, whirlpool or freak wave will end the game.
And if you’re not feeling tense enough from all those missing ships and crazy bonuses, you can have a crack at the Gamble Feature. Simply guess the suit or colour of a card turned over to double or even quadruple your win.
We throughly enjoyed the scary and slightly tense atmosphere in The Bermuda Mysteries slot. We also loved its unusual theme, and the Rescue Bonus makes a nice addition to the base game play, too. This Wombat will be back to delve into this mystery once again – there’s no doubt about that!
Wombat score: 5/5
This game is no longer available at Wombat Casino. Sorry about that chaps! Why not try Red Tiger’s Mystic Staxx instead?
