As fruit machines go, this 9 Masks of Fire mobile slot may be a little simple, but there’s a charm to it that is hard to beat.
With just the flickers of amber on a red background, this 9 Masks of Fire slot may just manage to convince you that it has an exotic theme, rather than what it is: classic bars and 7 fruit machine theme.
The difference is that the wild is a diamond symbol, the scatter is a golden African Mask, and the free spins are a shield and two spears.
This is vaguely African, in the same way that a bored Housewife in Malibu might get some zebra prints and call it African-themed. In short, it’s a cheat theme, but we don’t mind because the animations are smooth and the graphics are modern.
The main game has wilds and stacked scatters. Scatters, in this case, do exactly as they describe – they pay regardless of where they land on the 5 reels, without needing to be on a payline.
But because the scatter comes stacked, they pay out more often – getting three isn’t unusual, and getting 6 payouts 40x your bet, which is two reels of stacked scatters.
Get all 5 reels, and you’ve won the jackpot – 2,000 times your bet.
3 free spin symbols start a simple game where you spin a wheel to get anything from 10 to 30 free spins. Better yet, you are guaranteed to get a 2x multiplier on all wins and maybe an upgrade to 3x.
It’s a nice little touch, that air of mystery as you spin the wheel, but the free spins don’t come quite often enough to really make a difference.

Wild: The Diamond is the wild symbol and can be used to substitute all the other symbols except free spins or masks.
Scatter Pay: 3 or more golden scatter symbols pay regardless of where they land on the reels. The more you land, the more you get paid.
It's simple and easy to understand.
Free Spin Symbol: A free spin symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 will trigger the free spin wheel where you can win 10, 12, 15, 20, 25 or 30 free spins, with either a 2x multiplier or 3x multiplier.
You can re-trigger the free spins again with those 3 scatters; you'll re-trigger the same amount again.
Microgaming studios present GameBurger Studios very first game, and overall, we're not disappointed.
The 9 Masks of Fire slot on mobile has 5 reels and 3 rows with wilds, scatters, free spins and multipliers.
The difference here is that the scatters don't trigger the free spins, but instead, they pay when you get 3 to 9 symbols they pay, and they pay big - up to 2,000x your bet.
There's nothing earth-breaking here, but with some fun free spins where you don't quite know what you are going to get, this is a solid start. If you came across the Rabbit in the Hat slot, maybe try that first, but 9 Masks of Fire would be a good second choice.
