If you loved the swashbuckling adventure of the Mask of Zorro, you’ll love the Playtech spin on the Antonio Banderas movie. All your favourite characters can be found on the reels of this movie tie-in pokie that’s really ravishing to look at. Better yet, it’s optimised for mobile and tablet so you can get your buckle swashed when you’re on the move, too! The devil is always in the detail, so how does Mask of Zorro deliver when you spin the reels? Read our full review below.
Z for Zorro
The first thing to say about The Mask of Zorro is that Playtech have certainly captured the spirit of the movie as this is a company with a long history of making top-quality movie tie-ins. The background is a ravishing Mexican sunset while the flames of passion burn across the screen - it does bring together the gorgeous Catherine Zeta Jones and the dashing Antonio Banderas as Zorro, after all!
As you’d expect, the symbols are all characters from the film, including Captain Harrison Love (Matt Letscher), Elena (Catherine Zeta Jones), her father Don Rafael Montero (Stuart Wilson) and Don Diego de la Vega, played by Sir Anthony Hopkins. The bottom line is that this is a great-looking pokie with a terrific Spanish guitar soundtrack. The audio/visual design of Mask of Zorro is really quite special, drawing you into its world from the first spin.
The backdrop looks sizzling, and so is the action. This 5-reel, 40-payline pokie may not be for you if you prefer a more casual style of play as every payline is fixed. This means your minimum bet is 4.00 coins per payline and the maximum wager is 4,000 coins per spin. It's definitely one for the high rollers.
The pay table is paid out in multipliers, so you’ll want to push your wagers to the limit for the best returns. Landing five Aces or Kings delivers a 60-coin win, while Don Diego delivers a healthy 500-coin return for five symbols on a winning payline. Zorro, our swashbuckling hero, pays out the top prize of 1,000 coins when five land on a payline.
The Mark of Zorro
Zorro is also the wild here and will replace all of the other symbols except the bonus to deliver winning combinations where they didn’t exist before. However, there is plenty of other bonus action here, as you’d expect from a pokie based on such a rollocking action-adventure romance.
The Mark of Zorro feature can trigger in base gameplay or during a bonus game, making it a doubly welcome feature. This feature can trigger at random after any spin as Zorro slashes his way across the reels, carving new Wild symbols everywhere that his blade touches. Depending on how many symbols appear, you will be rewarded with four, seven or even 10 additional Wilds on the reels.
Step into the secret cave
As if the Mark of Zorro feature weren’t generous enough, the Mask of Zorro has another bonus feature: the Secret Cave. Land the Candle Holder bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 in base gameplay and you’ll enter the secret cavern, where you will need to pick from six candles. Crack the whip twice to choose two candlesticks and reveal your free spins or multiplier. There’s a maximum of 15 free spins during the bonus round or a 3x multiplier, but you can’t win both.
However, that’s not the real beauty of this bonus feature. Not only can you retrigger it indefinitely with five free spins if you can land bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, but the Mark of Zorro will randomly trigger for an additional 4, 7 or 10 Wilds. You can imagine how lucrative this bonus can be if the reels align for you.
Play or run away?
We really love the Mask of Zorro. Everything about it just shouts great quality, from those rich graphics and beautifully rendered title characters to the fabulous soundtrack that riffs on the music from the film. The in-game animations are well done, and there’s a clever use of film clips.
It’s in the gameplay where Mask of Zorro really shines. The Mark of Zorro bonus is perfectly in keeping with the theme, and the Secret Cave has the potential to just keep on paying out if you can hit those Mark of Zorro bonuses at the same time.
