Everybody seems to enjoy a good mystery, as those who experience the genre of story are gripped to find out exactly whodunit. Throughout the years characters such as Sherlock Holmes helped found the mystery genre of story, and today we see evolved version of these with television shows such as CSI and True Detective. Internet betting software developer High 5 Games knows this, and has developed the A Night of Mystery slot as a result, bringing a dark, yet thrilling theme to its customers.
A Night of Mystery is a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot that focuses on the world of crime as well as a crafty detective who is looking to solve the big mystery. Symbols in the game include the detective, a drink-toting hussy, a dynamite-planting raven-haired beauty, a knife-wielding brunette, and a whip-carrying redhead. These symbols are complimented by standard slot symbols (10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace) as well as a title symbol that serves as the game's wild. Feature wise, A Night of Mystery features free spins that are triggered if you land 3 free spins symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4. It also has stacked symbols, stacked wilds, and scatter symbols.
Playing this slot, I was immediately struck as to how similar it feels to other games developed by High 5 Games. The game lacks any sort of originality, and I was bored playing the game within just a few minutes. Add in the fact that the visuals and sound are bland, and you have a game that really shows its age.
Still, if you're the type of player who enjoys simple slots with stacked symbols, A Night of Mystery may be a game that you would enjoy; I just wouldn't count on it.
