For many players, their primary exposure to Blueprint Gaming slots may well have come in land based casinos around the UK, with the developer specialising in both single-cabinet and multi-platform units. One of their most memorable games from our land based experience was Casper’s Mystery Mirror and you can imagine how pleased we were to see that the game was now available across all smartphones and tablets. The various Casper cartoons have never really made much of an impression with us – unlike with the Thundercats slot that we reviewed recently here at MobileCasino.net – but this game already has and we cannot wait to tell you all about it!
What to Expect
The game looks very good indeed and it is on the larger side as well for players that like that kind of thing, with four rows of symbols always in view and forty win lines to go with them. The standard control options have been carried over from the land based and online versions of the game to this mobile offering and that means plenty of potential bets, auto play and other minor perks.
Casper the Friendly Ghost needs some kind of important role on his own game and he succeeds in attaining one by serving as the wild card on this game. He will often land in stacks too, which represents the perfect opportunity to make the most of the forty available lines while you await the main feature.
That feature is a free spins round and the first job is to land the bonus symbol on reels two, three and four at the same time. Blueprint has always been a bit stingy when it comes to the spins themselves and that continues here with just five of them up for grabs, although they can be retriggered within the round if you are lucky enough to do so. Anyway, now that you are in the round, Casper’s Mystery Mirrors will begin to show up on the board in stacks. They do not just look like mirrors but act like them too, and will reflect the symbols around them to make it easier to complete winning combinations.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
The mirrors that make up not only part of the name on Casper’s Mystery Mirror but also have an influence on the bonus round are a nice idea and they even felt rather ground-breaking when we used to play this slot on land. However, the implementation just feels a bit off now that we have had the chance to play with them with more experience and they rarely lead to anything approaching value to compensate for only receiving five free games. Ultimately, they are a nice idea but the Blueprint mobile slots selection has improved massively since this was the star of the show and we would have to suggest trying Thundercats, Top Cat or Ted instead.
