The Bermuda Mysteries Slots

The-Bermuda-MysteriesYou’ve probably heard of the Bermuda Triangle, the place where ships and airplanes disappear from time to time, never to be seen again. The Bermuda Mysteries is a good looking slot machine which is themed around that area and around the mysterious disappearances that took place in the region. Designed by NextGen Gaming, it has a very interesting design and I think it’s worth a shot for that alone.

5 reels & 25 bet lines are part of The Bermuda Mysteries. As for its features, they give you bonus games, a free spins round, multipliers, scatters and wilds. $20,000 is the slot’s top prize.

Features of The Bermuda Mysteries

The Pilot wild with its multipliers, the Badge scatter with free spins and increasing multipliers, plus a Rescue bonus game, these are the three main features offered in the game.

First, the Pilot, which is used here as a wild feature which is allowed to appear only on the reels 2, 3 and 4. From there, it will be a substitute for other icons, appearing on random paylines and acting as whatever regular icon is needed there to form a new combo. The exceptions here are the Badge scatter and the Map, symbols which can’t be replaced with a wild. Whenever such a wild is part of a new combo, it multiplies the prize by 2x.

The Badge scatter symbol is the second big feature provided by the game, and as usual you can expect it to trigger free spins and to give away its own prizes. Get a couple of randomly placed Badge symbols, which don’t have to form their own combo, and your reward will go up to 200 times the triggering bet.

Free Games Feature

Access to the free spins is obtained with assistance from the Badge scatter, which needs to show up 3 or more times on the reels. 12 free spins are given whenever this happens. Radar symbols are added to the 5th reel during free spins, and each time you get one of these symbols you get a higher multiplier by 1x, to be used only for the current free spin. You can’t retrigger free spins.


Rescue Bonus

With Rescue bonus, you have a bonus game which needs you to first land 3 Map symbols on an active line. If it is triggered by that number of symbols with the Bermuda Map on them, you will get a feature where you have to sweep the Triangle, looking for bonus prizes.


Get a Ship or a Plane while you’re searching, and you get a prize. Next, the area will be refreshed with bigger prizes. You can keep searching and getting better and better prizes, until you find a Whirlpool, a Wormhole, Freak Wave, Broken Compass or Flying Saucer.

Betting options and jackpots

Whatever the number of coins you want to use, the game will allow it within its 1 to 25 range, but you play with just as many active lines. Each coin goes from $0.01 to $2, so you are allowed to bet up to $50.

Normal top payouts will give you 5,000 coins ($10,000), but with the Pilot wild contributing you can get to 10,000 coins ($20,000).

Design and symbols

The Bermuda Mysteries has a design which reminds me of World War II, of the kind of ships and airplanes that you would’ve had back then. The airplanes are that way, and the appearance of the Pilot gives you the same idea. It’s a look I enjoyed, especially since it has playing cards made out of studded metal and they look like they belong on the reels of such a game. The background shows you a picture of the sea in the Bermuda Triangle, with a storm being in progress.


Symbols: Pilot (wild), Badge (200x bet, scatter), Bermuda Triangle Map (scatter, 10x bet), Airplane (5,000 coins), Ship (500 coins), Radio Station (200 coins), Lifejacket (200 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (150 coins), Queen (125 coins), Jack (125 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The theme might be enough to get people to try out the slot, but luckily it gets help from the features and the top prizes as well, making it a game you really should play.
