With Mystery Symbols, Free Spins and Scatters that can pay up to 8,000x your bet, can the Mystery of the Orient slot from Wild Streak Gaming offer valued entertainment and big rewards?
The Mystery of the Orient is a 5×3 reel with 243 ways to win, Oriental-themed slot machine where you’ll find A – 9 symbols, and a high paying Sword Wielding femme fatal, Tiger, Gold Coins, Sword and stringed instrument.
You’ll also find Wilds on reels 2, 3, and 4, Ying Yang Free Spins symbols, Mystery Symbols and a Scatter symbol that could payout 10x, 40x or 8,000x your bet.
It’s a slot that stands out from the crowd and reminds us a little of the Sakura Fortune slots. However, it’s the slot’s features that will keep your attention for a while at least.
One of the main features hiding in the five reels of this Mystery of the Orient mobile slot is that of the Mystery Reveals. This feature works well in online slots like the Net Gains and Voodoo Hex slots.
And it works well here too. Mystery symbols in the base game reveal extra Wilds with up to 25x multipliers, helping create more wins, and could mean the difference between winning 40x or a huge 8,000x your bet if it reveals scatters.
If a Free Spins symbol is revealed in the base game, you could trigger the Free Spins bonus earlier than expected. Where this feature adds even more value is in the free spins.
Hit three or more Ying-Yang symbols, and you’ll trigger at least 15 free spins. The free spins now have two extra symbols available to be hit.
Symbols that can land you up to 5 extra free spins or will increase the size of the reels by one symbol up to a maximum of six, also increasing the number of ways to win.
We’ve had mixed results with the free spins feature, landing anywhere between 20x and 93x our bet. There’s more there for lucky winners, especially if you land those big wild multipliers via the Mystery Symbol reveals.

Wilds: The golden coin is the wild symbol, and it only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. It substitutes for all other symbols except the free spins Ying Yang symbol. If a Mystery symbol reveals it, it can have a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 20x, or 25x. If two or more wilds are part of a winning payline, the multipliers will add together for bigger wins.
Scatters: Scatter symbols don't trigger any special bonus symbols, but they do payout up to 8,000x your bet.
Mystery Symbols: When a Mystery symbol shows up on the five reels, it will reveal a Wild, Scatter or Free Spins symbol.
Free Spins: 3, 4, or 5 Ying Yang free spins symbols trigger 15, 20, or 25 free spins, respectively. During the free spins, two more symbols can now be revealed naturally or by the Mystery Symbols:
Bonus Buy: For 100x your current bet level, you can trigger the free spins with 3, 4, or 5 scatters rewarding you with 15, 20 or 25 free spins randomly.
Wild Streak Gaming put on a good show in the Mystery of the Orient slot on mobile.
The promise of 5 scatters hitting a huge 8,000x might only be a reality for the lucky few, but the Mystery Symbols revealing Wilds with multipliers up to 25x your bet is more likely.
The minimum bet of 0.25 per spin is more than some higher variance slots with bigger wins like the Wild Chapo 2 slot, but is reasonable enough for the casual gambler to give it a go.
Especially as this slot not only looks good but entertains.
Take it for a spin and see if you can line up those scatters for a big win at one of our best casinos.
