The Mummy Slots

The-MummyThe Mummy is a Playtech game, a slot machine that is built based on a theme that is inspired by a 1999 Hollywood film. It was an adventure movie that became quite popular at the time, the main stars being Rachel Weisz and Brendan Fraser. The inspiration for it came from a 1932 movie that is considered a classic, using the same name and having Boris Karloff as the hero. Several sequels were created, once the movie proved to be successful in theaters. The slot uses images with all the main characters from the movie, so there are real pictures of your favorite actors inside.

The Mummy places 25 paylines on its 5 reels, giving you just as many opportunities to win the big $10,000 prize each round. Inside the game, there are the usual scatter and wild symbols, but there is also a bonus game that gives you access to eight different features, some of them added permanently to the reels, others won at random if they are selected as favorites.

Features of The Mummy

The wild symbol, the scatter, the free spins and the bonus games you get to experience inside are all great to have and they make sure that you will enjoy your time.

The Mummy gets the main role among the feature symbols, acting as the wild. It is capable of substituting for all the regular symbols, so naturally the exceptions are the ones that have some kind of features attached. Appearing only on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels, the Mummy Wild is not going to give any prizes directly, as it can’t form combinations of its own.

The first of the scatter symbols gets The Mummy Logo to represent it. This symbol is going to give you prizes and that’s about it. You need a minimum of three Logos to get a prize, with the maximum of five being required for the highest prize, worth 150x the triggering bet. The scatter symbol has the ability to give away its prizes from random positions, forming combinations without its symbols being on the same payline.

Lost City Adventure Bonus

This is one of the best features that The Mummy has to offer, but unfortunately it only gets triggered at random, so you’re not going to be able to get it started with the help of the symbols. As you play the game, you will notice that there are six features you can choose from, on a column located at the left side of the screen. The six features are part of a group of eight that you can get at random in this game, but only after you’ve won them in eight different rounds of the bonus game.


Lost City Adventure is the name of the first feature you get and inside you get a chance to win both a cash prize and access to one of the other 8 random features. The newly won feature will be added to the left side bonus area, so you get a chance to win it in the future as you play the base game. Each time you get a bonus feature you also gain access to another of the 8 random features. Two of the 8 features are added permanently to the reels, which is why only 6 spots are available in the bonus area.


The first feature would be Scorpion Scatter, which adds additional scatter symbols to the game’s reels. The Scorpion King is the one that takes the role of the extra scatter.

Next, we have Expanding Mummy. The wild symbol becomes an expanding wild at this point, still appearing only on the three original reels. This new wild still can’t give away prizes or substitute for special symbols.


Scarab Attack is triggered when the wild symbol appears on the 3rd reel, in any position. At this point, Scarab Attack will trigger two extra wilds, on the 2nd and 4th reels.

Collapsing Reel is a feature that a lot of slots have, but not as a bonus. It collapses symbols that are part of winning combinations, allowing for new ones to come in. Hopefully this results in additional prizes.

Mummy Power adds a multiplier to the wild symbol, so when you get 1 to 3 contributing wilds, you get multipliers between 3x and 9x for the prizes of that new combination.

If Mummy Re-Spin is activated, then whenever the wild symbol appears, the reel it is on will freeze and the others will re-spin once for free.

Free Games is another important feature, but it’s not part of the six that can be activated one at a time. Instead, this feature gets added to the reels permanently once you win it. The new Free Games symbol appears on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. Get them all at the same time and you win 5 spins for free, plus 1 Super Spin. You collect up to 9 wild symbols during the free spins, which will then be used on the reels of the Super Spin, a round with huge chances of getting paid.

Mummy Hunt is the 8th and final feature that can be added to the game. It’s also part of the reels once it is won during Lost City Adventure. The new Mummy Hunt Logos are going to show up on 1st and 5th reels. A bonus game starts up when the two Logos are on both reels at the same time. You hunt mummies inside, getting up to 10 prizes from them, one for each mummy you kill.

Betting options and jackpots

What I love about this game is that it’s not very expensive to play. $25 per spin is still not considered cheap, but at least at its highest level it is only average. Penny slot players can also enjoy this game, being able to reduce the line bet/coin denomination from $1 to jus t$0.05.

A 10,000 coins prize is on the line each round, with its value going as high as $10,000.

Design and symbols

The game’s theme is based on the movie, so you get mostly real photos of objects and actors, very few being designed from scratch. The reels are placed inside a pyramid or temple, using a dark design with brown being the predominant color. It’s not a terribly attractive slot machine, but a lot can be forgiven in a game with great features.

Symbols: Mummy (wild), Rick (10,000 coins), Evy (2,000 coins), Imhotep (500 coins), Anakh-Su-Namun (500 coins), Scorpion King (250 coins), Anubis Bracelet (75 coins), Book of the Dead (75 coins), Canopic Jars (50 coins) and Revolver (50 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

I’ve found this to be quite the charming slot, in big part due to the huge number of features that can be activated. Even though you don’t get them all at once, and for six of them you have to pick only one to use, at least you have something to look forward to if you keep playing it.

The Mummy, The 1999 Film

Released in 1999, The Mummy is a movie that had Stephen Sommers as its director, while its main actors were Brendan Fraser, John Hannah, Rachel Weisz and a few others. This was actually a remake after a movie with the same name from 1932, where the star was Boris Karloff. The action starts initially in 1290 BC, in Ancient Egypt, with Imhotep, the pharaoh and the mistress of Seti I being part of a tragic story. Fast forward about 3,000 years, and you get to the present time, when our heroes enter the picture.

The movie was highly successful, having a $80 million budget and managing to gross at the box office over $415 million. Thanks to its success, sequels also followed in 2001 and 2008, a rollercoaster was made based on it and animation series and spin-offs were also created.

This The Mummy slot is offered by all online casinos with Playtech software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
