Fantasini Master of Mystery is a Net Entertainment-powered video slot with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you can play from as little as 25p to as much as £125 a spin. Set in the 19th century, it has a magic theme with is reminiscent of Harry Houdini. The graphics are excellent with the soundtrack adding to the mysterious and captivating feeling.

You will see typical magician’s props like crystal balls, handcuffs, chained magic boxes and decks of cards on the reels to give it a classic feel. Like other NetEnt slot games, it benefits from the Linked Reel feature where 2 or more reels are cloned and linked together for every spin.

When the reels start spinning, you can have 2, 3, 4 or even 5 reels cloned and linked together – the more reels, the bigger the wins naturally. Look out for the magician wild symbol which appears on all reels except the first one – this will substitute for all symbols for enhanced winning combinations.

Fantasini Master of Mystery plays at a fast pace which is good but there isn’t any free spins feature – that’s not to say that you can’t win big with the Linked Reels feature. There’s a whopping 1,080 times your bet available to be won on every single spin which is achieved with 5 linked reels.

The variance is somewhere in the middle offering balanced payouts – NetEnt has produced better slot games in my opinion but it’s a good game which will appeal to many players. One thing I must add is that the animations and look of the game are brilliant providing a tense and exciting experience.

If you like free spins though, the classic Gonzo’s Quest is pretty good as you can get multipliers up to 15x with the Avalanche Reels feature as you are rewarded for consecutive winning spins. You should also check out the steampunk-themed Steam Tower where the multiplier increases in the Free Spins feature every time you ascend a floor (up to 7x).
