Mystery at the Mansion™ (EOL)
This game is End of Life but feel free to read about it here
Inspired by the ‘whodunit’ stories of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Piorot, Mystery at the Mansion is also highly recommended for those who love to play the board game Cluedo. If these stories or board game do make sense to you, this Netent video slot doesn’t need a lot of explanation other than some background information. Those who do not know any of them, I recommend to play Mystery at the Mansion anyway, or else you would miss out on a nice game.
Mystery at the Mansion isn’t the newest Netent video slot available, but it’s for sure one of the nicest to play as you actually get the role as detective. This means it’s up to you to find out who is the perpetrator, responsible for the murder at the mansion. But not only that, you also have to guess why the murder was committed. And without all the technical gadgets available in the Crime Scene video slot, you’ll also have the difficult job to find out what the murder weapon was.
Solve the mystery
If you like detective themed stories, and video slots like Crime Scene, you’ll definitely like Mystery at the Mansion. Without you it’s possible the mystery never gets solved, the reason why I think you should see it as your duty to play Mystery at the Mansion, at least until you’ve reached the bonus game once, so you can have a try to solve the mystery once and for all. Mystery at the Mansion homes a number of suspicious people including some employers since you are the one who’s going to solve the case, you won’t be safe either until you’ve found the culprit responsible for the crime. This all happens in a rather creepy atmosphere, sleuthing music and frightening sound effects. Symbols as murder weapons, clues, and of course the dead colonel himself won’t help to make the atmosphere comfortable and pleasant, an expected environment for a Cluedo themed video slot like Mystery at the Mansion.
Set within the confines of an old room with recognisable red velvet curtains, wooden panels and a crackling fireplace, Net Entertainment knows how to design a video slot. Although the setting doesn’t give you the idea something is wrong, the sounds of thunder and other creepy sound effects on the other hand will. You must love Mystery at the Mansion if looking for a bit of excitement after a working day or in your spare time. The symbols are occupied by the detective, the Colonel, the mansion, a letter opener, the poison, a smoking gun, candlestick and of course no mystery will be solved without the magnifying glass.
Before you start preparing yourself to get into the case, I recommend you to set the total bet so it will fit your budget. There are 25 bet lines you can activate and just as always I would advise to activate all 25 of them as these are responsible for most of the winning combinations. After that you can choose from four different bet levels and six coin values, perfect for many players, although high rollers won’t be too impressed about the maximum bet of 50.00. Low risk players can be satisfied with a minimum bet of 0.25 which can be increased easily by the many levels ad coin values.
I can promise you a very mysterious bonus game, but less mysterious is the Wild feature, always available in every video slot designed by Net Entertainment. Some video slots do offer more Wilds than others, like Starburst for example, but this general feature isn’t that spectacular in Mystery at the Mansion. It’s the detective acting as a Wild, substituting for all other symbols except the Mansion Scatter and Bonus symbols. The reason a Scatter isn’t substituted is because it has its own role to play. Scatters can appear anywhere on the reels and when two or more Scatters appear, winnings will be awarded. The Mansion Scatter not only awards Scatter wins up to x400, but also triggers 10, 20 or 30 Free Spins with a x3 Multiplier when 3,4 or 5 of those Scatters show up respectively.
Mystery Mansion Bonus
Three of more bonus symbols on an enabled bet line will activate the bonus game. Who killed the colonel, what murder weapon was used and what was the motive to commit such a horrible crime. It’s up to you to come up with the answers so the mystery can be solved. With each correct suggestion you make while playing detective, you’ll be nicely awarded. Always wanted to be a detective, or naturally paranoid, the chance is big you’ve found yourself the perfect video slot which comes close to other criminal based video slots like Thief, Crime Scene and Jack Hammer.
