Masques of San Marco is another great free slots game available now to play on our site via a browser or mobile and tablet device. Made by IGT, this particular addition boasts rock-solid core gameplay that will be familiar to online slots fans, as well as some unique bonus features with the power to completely transform a player's fortunes. The graphics are clean and modern, with an interface that makes it easy to get to grips with the slightly unorthodox game layout. Overall, the experience is a pleasant one, with mask-related fun to be had and also big prizes to be won.
Unusually for a slots game, Masques of San Marco is made up of five reels that have six rows each, laid out in a 5x6 configuration. Because of this large size, there are 40 fixed paylines in the main game which are always in play. A broad range of prizes will be awarded to fortunate players for three-, four- and five-of-a-kind adjacent symbol matches on a payline from left to right. In total there are nine symbols, seven of which are regular types that award prizes for matches, with the remaining two unlocking wild and bonus round functionality.
This game's unique feature is free-falling symbols. Every time the player manages to get a match, those symbols will disappear and will instead be replaced with cascading symbols from above. Any new matches are then calculated before they disappear in turn. It goes without saying that this can be the key to racking up some massive wins. The feature ends when no more winning combinations appear.
The most valuable regular symbol is the Masques of San Marco logo. Finding five of these when playing using the maximum line bet will award massive top prizes of 5000 coins. Next up is the red mask, which offers potential top prizes of 1000 coins. Way down at the other end of the scale is the lowly star, which is only worth a maximum of 80 coins. Not to worry, though, because thanks to this slot's unique special game features, in addition to an expanded free spins bonus round even small amounts like these can add up to something far bigger. All line wins are multiplied by the line bet.
First among the special symbols is the wild. Although it does not award prizes in itself, in this game the wild can be used as a substitute for any normal symbol as part of a winning combination on a payline for even more chances to get lucky.
Bonus and Free Spins
Next up is the bonus symbol. Finding three of these on reels one, two and three will trigger Masques of San Marco's bonus round, a free spins mode. The player starts with six, though this can be re-triggered with additional bonus symbols up to a total of 300 free spins. During this round, the number of paylines is greatly expanded, from 40 to 60. Lastly, all free spins are played using the same line bet of the regular spin that initially triggered them.
