Red Tiger Gaming is attempting to lure players in with a slot that has taken on an interesting Wheel of Fortune meets Celtic Empire theme in Mystic Wheel. There’s no doubt that the intricate design is well crafted, and it’s visually quite beautiful, but is that where the attention to detail stops?

With 5 reels and 30 paylines, Mystic Wheel offers a very generous 10,000 x your bet maximum win, so it would certainly seem as though there’s a lot beneath the surface. But how easy is it to pry your fortune out of the jaws of this mystical wheel? I’ve had a good look around all the cogs and screws of this machine just to find out.

  • The base game doles out much higher than average wins
  • The bonus game allows for up to 77 wheel spins
  • Top multipliers are easy to unlock during the bonus game
  • Mystic Wheel is available to players in Canada
  • Despite the Scatter appearing every reel, the bonus game is almost impossible to trigger
  • The special features are very limited
  • The maximum bet is very low

Mystic Wheel - Theme and Background

The theme is distinctly Celtic, mirroring the warm greens and golds we associate with this culture. The intricate details are accompanied by some rather lovely music which, sadly, has been rudely drowned out by the clanging and thudding of the spinning reels. It’s a shame that the designers prioritized sound effects over soundtrack, as this would have been the kind of music you’d want to keep your sound on for.

The grid itself forms the Mystic Wheel, which animates subtly depending on which combinations you land. Strangely the slot does away with Wilds altogether, replacing them with 8 regular symbols and a Bonus Scatter. Across the reels are symbols like enchanted rings, a pendant, a diamond and a key. Together, these represent the high paying symbols. The rather dull (although well designed) card suits stand in for all 4 low paying values. There’s no story to tell, and it does get tiresome after a while because the animation is highly limited.

Mystic Wheel - Gameplay

Disappointingly the slot only has one special feature. This is even more of a let down when you factor in how dull the base game is. But does this solitary feature make up for the dreary spins required to activate it? Here’s how it works.

Mystic Wheel Bonus Feature

Mystic Wheel Bonus Feature

As the slot’s title suggests, the entire game revolves around the Mystic Wheel. Quite honestly, without activating this feature you have absolutely no hope of walking away with a profit. You can try your luck on Red Tiger’s version of a wheel of fortune by landing 3 or more Mystic Wheel Scatter symbols anywhere on each of the 5 reels. For each Scatter you land you’re awarded 1 spin of the wheel. As you watch the wheel slow, honing in on your prize, you can hold your breath for any of the following:

  • 6 different multipliers (these start at 2 x and can go all the way up to 416 x)
  • Double all (each multiplier on the wheel is doubled on your next spin of the wheel)
  • + Spins (the player wins an allocated number of extra wheel spins)
  • + To all (the multipliers are increased by the number indicated in the box)
  • ? (awards a random number of extra spins or a random increase of the multipliers on the wheel)

During the Mystic Wheel special feature, getting lucky and landing on the right segments means you could win up to 77 spins. It’s also your opportunity to unlock the slot’s 10,000 x your bet maximum win and multipliers landed on are added up together before you’re paid out.

Mystic Wheel - Payouts and Wagering Limits

Let’s begin with the wagering options. Mystic Wheel allows players to set their bets starting as low as C$0.20 per spin. Unfortunately this can only be increased up to C$10, which will be an instant turn off to any players who are partial to big betting. You would think this makes the slot appropriate for low budget players, but the base game wins, although larger than most, won’t generate much of a win in the long-term. A winning combination is created as soon as there are three or more identical symbols from left to right on a qualifying payline. On average, I was paid out varying amounts on every other spin, but a few of these were too small to keep me in profit over an extended period of time.

If you’re lucky enough to hit on the bonus game (and you’ll need to be lucky because it’s a tricky one to trigger), then you could find yourself paid out up to 10,000 x. That’s a very tremendous cash prize of C$100,000, but I wouldn’t bank on it. More realistic winning combinations will pay about 10 x your bet, or up to 300 x if you can fill your screen with diamond symbols. The RTP is set at 96.16%, which is just above the average with most modern slots.

Final Verdict

Mystic Wheel


Mystic Wheel does a great job of selling itself, because who doesn’t love to try their luck on a wheel of fortune? But the reality is a tiny bit different from what you’re promised.

The wheel itself is only accessed in the bonus feature, which takes an inordinately long time to trigger. This is made further disappointing by the fact that there are absolutely no other features to entertain you while you wait, so all you’re left with is a rather dull base game. And despite the fact that the graphics and design are lovely, they aren’t lovely enough to stave off the boredom.

I would recommend this slot to low-budget players who enjoy the odd quick game, as extended play could see things take a rather unfortunate turn.
