Inspired by the classical Greek goddesses of creativity and the arts, Net Entertainment’s Muse is a video slot with five reels, 25 fixed paylines, and a number of bonus features.
This online slots game is subtitled Wild Inspiration; a reference to the three Wild bonus feature symbols that grace the reels. In addition to the wild features, players could also receive re-spins and free spins.
A user-friendly interface makes the game easy to play, while the graphics and sound it features are of good quality.
Muse Reel Symbols
The Muse reels see a mix of themed higher value and bonus symbols and more standard lower value symbols. Generally, the symbols need to appear from left to right, in consecutive order, to form winning combinations.
The lower value, playing card symbols of 10, J, Q, K, and A are given the Hollywood-style ancient Greek lettering treatment, while the higher value and bonus symbols portray the goddesses and some of their gifts to humanity.
These symbols include a harp representing music, a scroll and pen representing literature and poetry, an artist’s palette and brushes representing the visual arts, a cup of wine, and a bunch of grapes. The latter two possible represent offerings made to the goddesses.
Other symbols on the Muse reels include Hermes’ winged sandal, and the goddesses Euterpe, Clio, and Thalia. The sandal is the scatter symbol, and the trio is the Wild Inspiration symbol.
The scatter and Wild Inspiration symbols unlock the online slots Australia bonus features.
Wild Inspiration Symbol
The Muse online slots Wild Inspiration symbol will only be found on the second, third, and fourth reels. This symbol has a number of functions in the game.
It can substitute for the higher and lower value symbols to help form winning combinations. However, it will not substitute for the scatter symbol.
The appearance of the Wild Inspiration symbol will unlock one of three features.
Players could receive an expanding wild that will cover the reel, or they could receive a wild with a 2x multiplier. If more than one symbol appear, each will multiply any wins made. The symbol could also bring a sticky wild that will hold its position on the reel for a re-spin.
Scatter Unlocks Mount Olympus Spins
The winged sandals of Hermes make a fitting Muse scatter symbol, as the appearance of three or more of them anywhere on the reels will take players to the Mount Olympus free spin bonus game.
Three scatter symbols award 10 free spins, four scatter symbols award 20 free spins, and five scatter symbols award 30 free spins. These will all be played with the same bet that was placed on the spin that activated the bonus game.
In the free spins game, the Muse Wild Inspiration symbol could bring either an expanding wild with a 2x multiplier, or a sticky wild with a 2x multiplier that holds its place for a re-spin, or a sticky expanding wild that covers the reel and holds its place for a re-spin.
The free spins game can be re-triggered if three or more scatter symbols appear on the reels during the round.
