Five ‘9 Masks of Fire’ tips and facts

Hosting reels that are filled with the likes of shields, spears and tribal masks along with tribal-like music beats, 9 Masks of Fire is an African-themed sight for any sore eyes (or ears). With a scatter symbol that pays up to 2,000x your stake and a free spins feature that can lead to unlimited retriggers, this African adventure has the potential to deliver. So drums at the ready and beat to the spins with these five 9 Masks of Fire Tips and Facts…

1. Under the mask? 2,000x your stake!

Like with many a Microgaming slot, 9 Masks of Fire pays the biggest bucks once you’ve revealed all 9 scatter symbols. These scatters can appear anywhere on the reels, and in the case of 9 Masks of Fire slot, the scatter symbols are… you guessed it… masks!

The more masks you reveal, the higher your win: 3 masks will pay 1x your stake, 4 masks will get you 5x your stale, and if you manage to land 9 masks, you’ll ignite the biggest prize of 2,000x your stake!

2. Shields at the ready!

The masks are on fire, but they’re not the only symbols heating things up in 9 Masks of Fire. The Shield scatter symbol is also one to look out for. This handy symbol will reward you with a 1x your stake prize straight off the bat and can also activate the free spins feature when you land 3 of them simultaneously on reels 2, 3 and 4.

3. A safari of unlimited free spins

So you’ve landed the 3 shield symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and now you’re in the free spins feature – well done! From here, you get to spin the free spin wheel which contains free spin values from 10 up to 30 free spins and accompanying multipliers of 2x or 3x.

Wouldn’t you like to know how you can get your hands on unlimited free spins? Well, if you can retrigger the free spins feature for up to 60 free spins with the original multiplier and then yes, you can actually retrigger an unlimited amount of free spins.

As if this feature couldn’t get more attractive, there’s also a chance that scatter masks could appear in the free spins feature and we know what that means… a chance to win 2,000 your stake on every free spin, baby. Did someone turn up the heat in here??

4. Diamonds are your best friend

While on your African adventure, keep your eyes peeled for that diamond in the rough because that sparkly diamond Wild symbol is most rewarding symbol in 9 Masks of Fire. If you fill the reels with diamond wilds you’ll take home a payout of 2,500x your stake.

What’s more, as unlikely as it is, there’s the potential to win a colossal 7,500x your stake on every free spin in 9 Masks of Fire if you add on the 3x multiplier from the free spins feature. But yes, that’s pretty unlikely so don’t go chasing your tail, folks.
