But the look alone isn't what makes this game special. It also features two completely unique bonus rounds to ensure things never get boring, and a humongous top jackpot prize of $100,000. Make no mistake - playing Mystery of the Tarot is sure to improve your fortunes.
Observing the Ritual of the Tarot
Mystery of the Tarot is an easy game to play, and you should be on top of it within a few spins. The aim of the game is quite straightforward - spin the five reels, and try to get a selection of images to line up with each other when the reels come to rest.
The game supports up to 9 active pay lines - you can play as many or as few as you line. Each extra line you activate costs a coin bet, and increases your chances of winning.
You can also control what each coin is worth, enable you to play Mystery of the Tarot for as little as 5c, or crank it up to $10 a line.
See What the Cards Reveal
If you're at all familiar with the traditional Tarot deck, the symbols in this game will be very familiar to you. The lower end is covered by suits: Wands, Swords, Pentacles and Cups. You need at least 3 of each to make a combo, and they're worth up to 250 coins.
The rest of the symbols need only 2 to trigger a payout, and are all special cards. The Moon, The Sun, The Priestess and The Fool are all represented here, with the Wheel of Fortune being the most valuable symbol of all.
Fame, Fortune and Fat Bonuses
The main Bonus game is triggered by the Tarot symbol The World. If it shows up on reels 1 and 5, the game begins automatically.
It's called Cards of Destiny, and it has 3 rounds - you'll be selecting cards to reveal amounts of bonus cash.
Winnings in the bonus round are cumulative - you'll get to keep all of the money you acquire in each round, and it'll be added to your bankroll when you drop back to the main game.
