Casper’s Mystery Mirror Slots

Casper's-Mystery-MirrorCasper’s Mystery Mirror is a game which is offered by IGT, and which is themed around the adventures of the world’s friendliest ghost. The inspiration for this game obviously came from the animation series called “Casper the Friendly Ghost”. The slot seems to have all the main ghost characters from the series, though only Casper can be considered a positive one. All sorts of monster and scary looking graphics were used.

You’re going to get plenty of chances to win a prize in this case, the 5 reels of the slot getting 40 paylines and just as many potential payouts each round. Players that try it out will also discover scatter symbols, free spins and stacked wilds. The big prize is only worth 500 coins, or $2,500.

Features of Casper’s Mystery Mirror

The game’s features will give you access to the stacked wild, to a scatter, plus a very special free spins feature, which comes with Mystery Mirror symbols.

A symbol with Casper was chosen to at as the slot’s wild. It’s going to be the kind of wild that both substitutes for other symbols and which can form its own combinations and offer you the best prizes of the slot. To top things off, this is a stacked wild, so it will take over multiple symbols on the same reel if you’re lucky. It should also give you a pretty decent chance of forming multiple combinations with wilds in them. That top payout which is offered with help from the wild will give you 500 times the line bet back.

There is one other symbol with an important role in this game, which you get when you’re in base game mode. It’s the symbol marked Bonus, with Casper shown as he’s holding a mirror. This is a scatter symbol reserved for the middle three reels (2, 3 and 4). Get it on all three, and you get back the value of the bet from that round, plus access to the free spins.

Free Games Feature

Should you land all three Casper Bonus scatters on the reels, during the same round, you will get from the slot 5 free spins. Besides the free spins, you get the Mystery Mirror symbol to appear. Each round when you have one or more such symbols present, they will all display one randomly chosen symbol, so they help you with your odds of getting paid.

You can also retrigger the free spins of the game, with the same 3 Casper Bonus scatters which can appear on the centre reels.

Betting options and jackpots

You can modify the line bet quite a bit, starting at only $0.01 and reaching a maximum value of $5. Since 40 lines are part of the game, you can use that $5 line bet the same number of times, the total getting to $200 per spin.

The slot promises top payouts of only 500 coins at best, but thanks to the stacked symbols and the high number of paylines there is a good chance that you will get it multiple times during the same round. Each line can get a payout of up to $2,500.

Design and symbols

Inspired by the Casper animation series, the game uses the images of its characters for some of the symbols. The two feature symbols both have Casper on them, while his wicked uncles were used for the highest paying regular icons. It follows the cartoon style from the animation series quite closely, so you will have no problem enjoying it if you remember it fondly. There are playing cards as well unfortunately, and they’re the kind that you’re not happy to see, meaning they don’t have a connection with the theme.


Symbols: Casper (wild, 500 coins), Casper and mirror (scatter), Stinkie (400 coins), Fatso (300 coins), Stretch (200 coins), Candle Holder (200 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (150 coins), Queen (100 coins), Jack (100 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The Casper connection might appeal to many, but the truth is that the game will be enjoyable enough based on its features as well. Its stacked symbols make up for the low payouts. The one thing that will disappoint will be the design quality.

Casper the Friendly Ghost

Casper McFadden is the full name of this friendly ghost, which is the main character in an animation series belonging to Famous Studios.
