What makes this Mystery Reels slot so mysterious? How about the fact that we actually quite liked it?
The game studio Red Tiger Gaming hasn’t always impressed us with their iOS and Android slot machines, but boy did they surprise us with this Mystery Reels mobile slot.
It is not a complicated game, by any means. It has no free spins. No Scatters. No Wild symbols.
Even the theme isn’t particularly impressive; just a standard fruit machine sat in a casino hall somewhere, with melons, plums, sevens and bells as symbols.
The mystery fruit symbol shows up, and doesn’t come stacked like in games such as Fortune Girl by Microgaming.
Instead there is a singular golden apple, which when it lands, will show a number, and then go out and spread across the reels by that number.
It means that your mystery symbol can spread vertically or horizontally, providing more chances at 5 of a kind wins.
As with everything in this Mystery Reels slot game, we were surprised by how such a small and simple change could not just affect your balance, but our enjoyment of this feature.
Considering the name, you’d think the mystery symbols are the crowning glory here.
And, to be fair, they probably are in terms of giving you decent wins of 100x your bet thanks to multiple 5 of a kind wins.
But there’s something about that bonus wheel, which when it hits, makes you excited as you see multiplier after multiplier mount up.
Sometimes, a simple concept, well executed, can be better than complicated bonus slots that try do to too many things at once (looking at you WMS’ Monopoly Bring the House Down).
This Mystery Reels slot game hit all the right, simple, notes.

Mystery Reels: When a golden apple mystery reel slot symbol shows up on screen, it will be allocated a random number.
Usually it's around 3 to 5 - the most we've seen is 9. However, potentially you could get 15, covering every reel in the same symbol.
Because that's what this special bonus slot feature does: that golden apple spreads across the reel, turning anything from 3 to 15 symbols into the same one symbol.
It could be a low paying cherry, or a high paying 7. You just don't know.
The fact that these spread vertically as well as horizontally, means you don't need a huge amount of symbols to win big.
Bonus Wheel: When you get one or more wheel bonus symbol on screen, you'll get moved up to the top of this Mystery Fruit slot machine where you'll find a wheel of fortune to spin.
Depending on how many bonus symbols you find, you'll get that many spins on the bonus wheel.
(So one symbol is one spin, two symbols is two spins on the wheel, and so on...)
One the wheel you can get multipliers on your bet, ranging from 2x to 10x. But you can also get extra spins, and a special 'double all prizes' bonus, meaning you can now get 20x your bet in one spin.
It's not going to win you thousands, but a few 30x to 60x your bet wins is always helpful.
Especially as this bonus comes frequently.
It's not particularly original, or necessarily inspiring, but this Mystery Reels slot on mobile manages to keep things simple, but fresh.
That's mostly a wonderful way of adding thrills to the reels by using mystery symbols that expand across all ways, and tried and tested Wheel of Fortune type bonus.
For a low variance slot, it's also nice to know you can win an impressive 1,000 times your bet.
Once you've had your fill of this simple fruity, we'd also recommend Hong Kong Tower by Elk Gaming which is equally good at using instant cash wins to bring quick thrills.
