Show Me the Mummy Slot Machine
Try Booming Games Slots
Booming Games has a new Ancient Egypt-themed slot called Show Me the Mummy. While you may think that the slot will be scary with terrifying mummies all over the place, it is actually a funny one, where the mummies are friendly and even cute-looking. This is not something you often see in similar games, so we can give Booming Games credit for this element of surprise.
While the slot features a fairly simple layout with 5 paylines, its special features will actually blow your mind. The first symbol you will see is the Wild, which will substitute for other regular symbols but won’t act as a replacement for the Scatter. The Wild will only be present during the Free Spins and it won’t give you payouts directly, it will only help you as a substitute.
The Scatter in the slot is the shiny symbol with SC written on it. You will need 3 to 5 Scatters in order to trigger 5, 10 or 20 Major Free Spins. This is when the lowest-paying symbols will be removed from the reels and you will only get the highest-paying ones and Wilds. During the Free Spins, a Fire Reel can appear, which fills the first and last reel with Wild symbols only.
The 3rd reel during the Major Free Spins can at random become Mystery Wild Reel for the whole duration of the Free Spins rounds. The interesting thing about the Mystery Wild Reel is that it gives you Stacked Mystery Multiplier applied to your wins. This multiplier can go up to 10x.
However, the Mystery Wild Reel can also appear during the base game, too, on any reel, and in one spin you can get up to 2 Mystery Wild Reels.
Theme & Design
The reels are set against a desert background, and look like they represent the walls of a temple. On each side of the reels, you will see a fire burning, and on the right, you will see a sphinx. On the reels, you will see the friendly male mummy waving at you each time you form a win with it, a female mummy that poses and an archaeologist as the top paying symbols. Aside from playing card Royals, you will also get an Amphora for the lowest-paying symbol.
You can see that the theme is presented pretty well. It has humour in it, it is nicely designed and it includes all the symbolism necessary to depict the theme.
Wagering & Paylines
There are only 5 paylines in Show Me the Mummy, but the special features make it possible for you to get great payouts out of them. You can start betting with $0.05 per spin and up to $250.00. Considering the number of paylines, the line bet goes from $0.01 and up to $50.00.
Provided you activate all Multipliers during the gameplay, the maximum payout you can get is 500x the stake. Otherwise, the max win would be only 50x the stake. But the $125,000.00 prize with the Multipliers included is a solid payout.
From our experience with Show Me the Mummy, we can say that the game is high on the volatility scale. We like the theme since you rarely see the funny twist in Ancient Egypt-themed slots. The Multiplier feature is super helpful and can take you to the 500x the stake payout. But without the 10x Multiplier active, you cannot win much. This is the downside of the slot, so you will need to decide for yourself whether it is a game you would like to play. Our advice is, at least try it.
