The Tomb is a bewitching five-reel, ten-payline slot created under the Mascot Games slots brand. You’re presented with 10 paytable symbols, including the Mystery wild/scatter that substitutes for all symbols except the Dragon Emperor, a special symbol that unleashes up to five re-spins with expanding symbols.
If that already sounds like an action-packed slot, Mascot have thrown in free spins that can be retriggered with a special random expanding symbol.
On paper this can sound confusing, and we’ll be taking a deeper look at the bonus features later, but you can try The Tomb in demo mode so you can get to grips with all the action without risking your bankroll.
The clean lines and decorative graphics look superb on an HD screen, and The Tomb will play in-browser on a range of mobiles and tablets.
Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack
At least 8,000 terracotta warriors have been uncovered from Qin Shi Huang's mausoleum. The first Emperor of China commissioned this incredible army when he was just 13, in 246 BC.
Incredibly enough, the soldiers we’ve become so familiar with are just one garrison - there are also horses, chariots and acrobats, and the majority of the 56km site remains unexplored.
Mascot have played with a ‘what’s if’ backstory here to ask ‘what if the Dragon Emperor’s Army were bewitched and transformed into the terracotta soldiers?’ And so we see them on the reels alongside a more primitive clay golem and the bewitching sorceress.
The photo-realistic style has been used to good effect throughout the staging of this slot, and combined with the sweeping Chinese-style soundtrack it combines to create an attractive and very playable game.
RTP & Volatility
This high-volatility slot with a 35.1% hit rate will appeal to most players, but the 95.8% RTP is slightly disappointing. Things pick up in the free spins feature because of the decent potential.
How to Play The Tomb
High-volatility slots command respect, so set a session budget and a time limit that allows you to play responsibly and stay in control.
This game is straightforward to set up using the main game controls:
1. The Menu symbol bottom left accesses the following functions:
2. The mobile-optimised player interface is stripped back and lets you start and stop Autospins manually so you can play games without limit.
3. Adjust the total Bet using the + and - buttons or tap the handy Max Bet button to go all in.
4. Click the flaming spin button or tap Autospins to start your game.
Min & Max Bets + Top Wins
The betting interface is straightforward with no parameters to adjust - just pick a total stake of 0.20 up to 20.00 per spin or tap the Max Bet button for your shortcut to the highest stake. There are some high-paying symbols available with a base game win of 200x your stake, but combinations in the free spins can net you a fortune. In this highly volatile slot that’s a tricky feat. Digging down into the paytable we find the maximum five of a kind wins paying out in multipliers of your line bet - the dynamic paytable automatically adjusts as you change your bet:
- Sorceress pays 200x
- Golem pays 150x
- Terracotta Warriors pay 100x
- A & K pay 15x
- 10, J & Q pay 10x
We promised you a closer look at the bonus features, and they’re well worth getting to know better. This slot is all about the special symbols, so look out for the coin-shaped mystery and the Dragon Emperor and compare the expanding wilds feature with other slots in the Slots Temple library.
This symbol appears in the base game and free spins and pays 2x, 20x or 100x your stake for three, four or five of a kind. Three, four or five appearing anywhere on the reels trigger 10 free spins.
Free Spins with Expanding Symbol
Trigger the free spins and one paytable symbol will be chosen at random. This will expand when present on the reels and pay even in non-adjacent positions.
Dragon Emperor Feature
Emperor symbols pay 0.3x, 1x, 3,5x and 25x your stake for two, three, four or five of a kind. If you land three, four or five Emperor symbols on a payline they trigger one, three or five re-spins played out with expanding Emperor symbols.
Overall Review: Our Verdict
The Tomb is a feature-packed slot with plenty of ways to boost your bankroll if you have the patience to wait out the free spins. The Emperor re-spins also have potential, but beware the blind spins that arrive alongside.
Mascot has a nice way with audiovisuals, though the dependence on royals works better in some games than others. Here it largely works, and the overall effect is slick and impressive. Drop in those integrated game features and you have a very absorbing game.
Vela Gaming’s Fortune Beast slot demo also features a wild/scatter symbol, but there are 243 ways to win and a top win of 30,600x.
