Monte Cristo Cryptologic Online Casual Game

Monte Cristo is a title in the Casual Game section at Cryptologic online casinos. This is a sub section of slots games. The Casual Games do not follow the exact structure of conventional slot games, but are usually based on getting some alignment of symbols. Monte Cristo breaks away from even this mold. It is described as an Arkanoid-like game, except that the player does not manipulate the objects on the screen. Monte Cristo is based on the classic novel of intrigue and revenge The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas. But there is little added value for those players who are familiar with the tale.

The symbols are laid out on the screen in a specific pattern. A ball is randomly released and can bounce against ten symbols. Each symbol initiates a different action when struck by the ball. Most of the symbols simultaneously disintegrate and expose the symbols behind. Four of the symbols offer payouts. The blue gemstone offers a payout of 100 times the triggering bet. The payout for the treasure chest is 25 times, for the ring is 5 times and for the gold coins is 0.5 times. There are three types of walls. The ball bounces of the Wall without disintegrating it. The Soft Wall disintegrates after two bounces. The Damaged Wall disintegrates immediately. There are four special symbols as well. The Heart symbol adds three bounces. The Bomb awards wins from all surrounding symbols. The Skull is the dangerous one because it aborts the game. Normally every new game starts with a refreshed map. The Venetian Mask awards one game without the map refreshing. This means that many of the paying symbols are exposed to begin with and payouts are much higher.

Cryptologic Monte Cristo offers the mandatory bonus games as in online slots. Five free rounds are awarded when the free games symbol is hit in the main game. When the symbol is hit in the free games mode then one additional free game is awarded. The key is the bonus symbol. When the key is hit the player is taken to a second screen. He has to choose one of two doors and wins the prize revealed behind the door. In this manner the screen keeps on displaying doors in pairs till the player reveals a booby. The bonus game then ends. If more than one bonus symbol is hit in the same game then the payouts are multiplied by the number of bonus symbols hit.

The Monte Cristo Casual Game consists of a number of different maps with different layouts of symbols. The map changes on its own in a fixed schedule. This prevents boredom from setting in. Also the free games are played on a different map. The bet amount per game can be varied from $0.02 to $500. The usual Cryptologic online slots features are available in Monte Cristo. There are three game speeds. The fastest is so quick that everything happens in a flash and each bounce is not discernible. Both the standard and the advanced auto play are also available. Monte Cristo is live at Cryptologic online casinos like InterCasino and VIP Casino.
