9 Masks Of Fire isn’t the first pokie to make use of fascinating tribal imagery, but it is the first to do so this convincingly. It isn’t clear who carved these bizarre wooden masks, as far as lore goes, or even why the masks were carved. What is clear is that the bizarre wooden visages look convincing enough to touch.
Talented artists at Microgaming have clearly gone to great lengths to design the imagery and deliver it as interestingly as possible. Which is to say; a wonderful job has been done in regards to the visuals, and it is certainly the sort of detail that really makes online pokies stand apart.
In regards to the symbols, on the other hand, the reels are mostly populated by familiar classics. From golden bells, to diamonds, to cherries and lucky 7s, all the usual suspects are here. Plus, as would be expected, it is the diamonds and multiple 7s that are key to the biggest standard potential payouts. As is the tradition of pokies for decades.
The special symbols to look out for are the Free Spins shields, and the Mask Scatter. Their appearance on the reels is always reason to celebrate, since it means that, if matched, they will be unlocking the mysterious powers of the 9 Masks For Fire.
It would be anticipated that an online pokie called 9 Masks Of Fire is based around Mask Scatters, and this is indeed the case! Between 3 and 9 Mask Scatters can be matched, which will result in a win. Of course, the more Mask Scatters matched, the bigger the amount that will be awarded. The exact amount can always be seen to the left of the grid, keeping things entertaining. If all 9 Mask Scatters are matched, 2,000X the original wager will be awarded. Certainly an impressive potential payout.
Online pokies wouldn’t be the same without Free Spins, and 9 Masks Of Fire is happy to deliver. The ticket here is the Free Spins shields, which must be matched 3 times in order to be triggered. Note, however, that the number of spins awarded will be determined by the Bonus Wheel. On the wheel various numbers of Free Spins can be seen, and may additionally be matched with a multiplier. This means that when triggered, the Free Spins shields can potentially grant up to total of 30 spins, if combined with a 3x multiplier.
More astonishing still is that during a Free Spins sequence, the shields can again be matched, adding up to 30 more potential Free Spins. Needless to say, as far as pokies go, 9 Masks Of Fire is firmly focused on its fun, innovative Free Spins system. This is something that any online pokies enthusiast can be happy about, especially given how each spin can translate into a handsome payout.
