You might be surprised to know that Casper the Friendly Ghost was created in the late 1930's like a comic and children's book and subsequently became an animated cartoon in the 1940's. The friendly ghost peaked in popularity with the release of the 1995 movie Casper and is of course based on the original character created in 1939 and tells the story of Casper's efforts to become friends with humans. Blueprint has created a slot machine based on Casper, and it is great fun to play. This is a slot game with definite potential and with a couple of bonus features available, we decided to have a few spins.
Casper's Mystery Mirror is a tonne of fun. It is a simple yet, engaging slot machine game with plenty of detail and superb artwork. You can bet from as little as a penny per payline and even if you have never seen the movie or encountered the character at all, we would still recommend having a few spins on this. The bonus features are cool and really contribute well to the game. There is a maximum jackpot of a colossal £150,000 and if it sounds like it is for you then certainly check it out!
The wild symbol on this installment is Casper himself with the word wild displayed at the bottom. For those unfamiliar with a wild symbol, it essentially substitutes for all other symbols that are displayed on the reel (except the scatter) thus allowing players to pick up more winning combinations. There is also a scatter symbol on this version which is also Casper but with the word "BONUS" underneath it. The scatter activates the main bonus feature where the wild symbols will stack to grant you bigger wins. Both symbols are important so watch out for both of them!
Casper's Mystery Mirror:
This is the main feature within the game, and it is activated by the scatter symbol that we mentioned above. It is loads of fun when it lands, and you need to land three of the Casper scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 to trigger it. You will now be awarded five free spins which may seem slightly modest, but the Mystery Mirror then comes into play. When you land the mirror on the reels, a random symbol is then chosen which is then repeated in every mirror on the reel. These then become sticky and increase your chances of winning with every spin.
This occurs in the base game and involves the wild symbol that we described above. During the base game, the Casper wilds can stack which leads to greater winnings if they are part of a winning combination. The wilds can also land simultaneously on different reels to provide even bigger wins. There isn't any particular effort or attention required with the stacked wilds as they will occur automatically. It is a really nice feature and if it often lands you are in for some very nice wins!
