Playtech is one of the leading software suppliers to the online casino industry. It has maintained this leading position through constant innovation particularly in its online slots portfolio. From time to time Playtech has introduced new gaming features in its online slots. But it has used these unique features sparingly so that the attraction of the features is maintained. One of such features is the mystery scatter symbol.
Most symbols in a slot game offer payouts when they appear from left to right in active paylines. The payout specified on the table is multiplied by the bet placed on that payline. Scatter symbols payout in a different way. Usually they pay out when three or more appear anywhere on the reels. The payout is the table value multiplied by the total bet. Therefore scatter symbols are perceived as having advantages over other symbols. Almost all online slots have a scatter symbol.
The Playtech online slots with the mystery scatter symbol work in the following manner. A regular scatter symbol is designated up front. Usually in these slot games it is also the wild symbol. The free spins feature is triggered when three or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Before the free spins begin one of the other symbols is randomly selected as the mystery scatter symbol by the software. This symbol then takes on the properties of a scatter symbol that are identical to the existing scatter symbol. Therefore during the free spins there are two scatter symbols instead of one. This makes the free spins more lucrative, especially if one of the low paying symbols becomes the mystery scatter. The free spins can be retriggered.
Rome & Glory is another Playtech online slot that offers the mystery scatter feature. The Coliseum was the defining icon of ancient Rome and is the wild and scatter symbol in this slot game. The other symbols include Caesar and Cleopatra and icons that represent the wealth, military might and decadence of the ancient empire. The top scatter payout is 200 coins, but the same 10 free spins are offered. The latest Playtech casino game to include the mystery scatter feature is Sultan's Gold. This slot game is of the Arabian Nights genre with symbols like sultan, harem dancer, magic lamp and scimitar. The wild and scatter symbol is the sultan's palace with properties identical to Rome & Glory.
