This Money Mouse slot brings you plenty of flavours from the orient, with 3 in-game jackpots, mega wilds, and lots of stacked wilds.
With 25 paylines, 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols of golden, purple and red hues, this is a pretty Chinese slot game full of beating drums, money trees, floating dragon and Ace to 10 symbols.
The Mouse as the god of wealth and fortune did make us do a double-take, but then again, we are not so in tuned with Chinese lore to say whether it’s appropriate or not.
What we can say is that he is the wild symbol and comes stacked, which makes his funny smiley face a nice addition to our own when he shows up to give us more than one win.
The Money Mouse online slot is a mid variance game, meaning that hitting the big wins will require for you to get one of those in-game jackpots. And even then, you’re talking about 1,000x your bet.
How do you do that? By catching 6 red lanterns on screen. You’ll then get 3 re-spins to get as many red lanterns as you can – if you fill the screen, you’ll win the grand jackpot, but you could get one of the other three, and about 50x to 100x your bet instead.
How likely is that to happen? Not hugely likely. But the good news is that you won’t care, as you’ll be looking out for those mega symbols and those free spins that hit hard and often – not unlike Pragmatic Play’s Wolf Gold slot game.
You only get 5 spins in the Money Mouse slot free spin bonus. Which doesn’t sound like a lot, and it isn’t. But you won’t go 50 spins without hitting the bonus spins.
So it hits a lot, and it’s visually impressive. Mostly because reel 2, 3 and 4 will always show one massive mega symbol – so you only need one symbol matching on the first reel to get several 4 of a kind wins. It increases your chance of 5 of a kind wins, especially if the mega symbols happen to be a wild.
Will you win more than 100x your bet? Probably not. But that’s ok. It’s one of the mid variance Pragmatic Play slots with a lot of action and plenty of good fortune within. Sometimes it’s nice to play and write mobile slot reviews where you don’t have to watch every spin like a hawk, wondering if you’ll survive the experience – looking at you the Sword of Khans slot.

Stacked Wilds: The Mouse is the wild symbol and comes stacked on all 5 reels. It's the highest paying symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol in order to create a win.
Scatters and Free Spins: The money tree scatter appears only in reel 1, 3 and 5 and trigger 5 free spins. During the free spins, reels 2, 3 and 4 will spin together to show just one giant symbol.
Money Respin and How to Win the Jackpots: The red lantern is the Money symbol. When six or more show up on the reels, you start a special feature.
Here you get 3 re-spins to catch as many red lanterns as you can. If more lanterns show up on the reels, the re-spin counter re-starts to 3. If no lanterns show up in 3 spins, the feature ends. Every lantern will have a cash value, which you will win automatically.
You can also win the minor or major jackpot by revealing it behind a lantern, or if you fill all 15 spots with lanterns you will win the grand jackpot.
Will you drum to the beat of this Money Mouse slot on mobile? We think so, especially as those free spins come often, and those three in-game jackpots are too juicy to miss.
It's not a perfect slot review, few rarely are, with a generic theme and a hard to hit max win.
But you know what? That's all part of the fun in a casino slot that is well balanced - to be honest, we had fun playing with all those free spins and mega symbols. Add some stacked wilds, and we even got some good wins in the base game.
Money Mouse is a 5x3 reel video slot with stacked wilds, scatters, free spins and mega symbols. You also have a money re-spin feature where you can win one of three in-game jackpots.
