Playtech's feature-rich The Mummy slot is pretty slick to look at and certainly has enough to keep you watching but, as with most big-name branded licences it is built for entertainment primarily and the trade-off is that big wins are rarer.
The Mummy is the first game that Playtech have produced which requires a player to unlock features. We've seen the concept before on games like Microgaming's Thunderstruck 2 game and Immortal Romance which both have 4 features. The Mummy has no less than 8 (randomly awarded) features which are unlocked slightly more easily. I'm not going to bore you with what each feature does but you'll find free spins, random and sticky wilds, expanding wilds and more.
The game definitely looks the part. Like another big movie slot from Playtech, Kong, the game borrows heavily from the movie and graphics and sounds along with video sequences all add up to produce a decent enough spectacle. The only thing is, if you are like mw, once you have gotten over the eye-candy, it all comes down to gameplay and personally I like a slot game that gives me some big wins.
Of course, that also means higher variance and unlike a lot of slots online, The Mummy definitely isn't a volatile game so it will appeal more to those players that are happy to aim for modest profits as long as they get a decent session from the games.
As you may have gathered, that's not my style personally but that doesn't make The Mummy a bad slot game - far from it in fact and it wouldn't be here on OCV if it wasn't a good game. It's built for entertainment - and does a good job of it. It's not built to make you a milionaire :)
