Gameplay and Mechanics
Mystery of the Orient is simple to play, and Pragmatic Play keeps its signature bottom-placed control panel. Spin the reels by pressing the spin button at the bottom right of the game screen. Press this, and the reels spin once.
Below it, the autoplay button activates up to 1,000 automatic spins. You also have the settings, volume, and information buttons on the bottom right of the screen. Press the settings button to change different aspects of the game, such as the sounds playing as you spin the reels. Mobile players can also activate battery saver mode on the settings menu.
Symbols and Payouts
Mystery of the Orient has all the right symbols to go with the theme on the reels. Swords, coins, tigers, and treasure chests are some of the symbols you can expect on the reels. The female Chinese warrior dressed like the legendary Hua Mulan is the highest-paying symbol at 4 SC for a match of 5.
Land 5 of the tiger symbol for a payout of 3 Sweeps Coins. The treasure chest is the next high-paying symbol, with a payout of 2.40 SC for 5 matching symbols. After this are the sword and the mandolin, the last of the high-paying symbols with payouts of 2 Sweeps Coins for a match of 5.
The game uses face cards for the low-paying symbols, as is common with most slots. You get payouts of between 1.60 SC and 0.80 Sweeps Coins among the low-paying symbols, which is not so bad considering how low these symbols usually payout.

Bonus Features and Special Symbols
Bonus features are the highlight of any slot, and Mystery of the Orient packs a host of special features. From mystery symbols to special reels and symbols that will retrigger the free spins round, the slot delivers an excellent gaming experience for players who enjoy slots.
The first of the features to look out for is the mystery symbol which is in play even in the base game. A mystery symbol that hits on the base game reveals one of the special symbols, which are the wild, scatter, and bonus symbols. On the free spins round, the mystery symbol reveals the reel-size-increase symbol and the free spins symbol.
In addition to the mystery symbol, you have three other special symbols on the reels. A golden scroll with the word written on it is the scatter symbol, and this pays up to the grand award of 8,034x your wager when you land 5 of them on the reels.
The wild symbol is a golden Chinese amulet that replaces all other symbols except special symbols. Wilds revealed by the mystery symbol come with multipliers that start at 2x and go up to 25x. Multipliers apply for every winning combination that passes through them. As such, two multiplies on the same winning combination are added up to give the total payout.
Bonus Buy Feature
Pragmatic Play is known for its bonus buy range of slots that let you get to the bonus round without waiting for the right number of scatters. Mystery of the Orient comes with a bonus buy feature that gets you to the free spins round fast. The bonus buy feature is bought at 100x your current wager, and deactivates during free spins.

Design and Graphics
Pragmatic Play always delivers when it comes to graphics and sound. Mystery of the Orient boasts appealing graphics with smooth animations that bring out the theme quite well. The color scheme on the slot keeps everything bright and clear. The reels have a golden Chinese pattern that blends well with the scenic background. Everything is laid out intuitively, so players never have to look too much to find navigation buttons.
The Chinese musical number playing in the background ties everything together quite nicely. Add and remove different sound effects so that it always feels fresh, even after several spins. That the soundtrack has a long loop is also great for players who want to spin the reels for a while.
Pragmatic Play gives you a slot with lots of great features that most players will find interesting. The bonus round is packed with many special symbols that get you closer and closer to the max win.
With high volatility and an equally high hit rate, the game promises exciting gaming coupled with big wins. As one of the slots from Pragmatic Play with a huge maximum payout, Mystery of the Orient is sure to draw in players looking to hit the jaw-dropping max win.
The slot checks a lot of the boxes for top-notch slots but does come short in some areas. Players have no gamble option to play on the slot, which would have been great to see should players hit the max win.
The game also lacks a jackpot but makes up for this with a huge maximum win. All around, Pragmatic Play churns out a slot that is above average in many ways. Players will enjoy the glitch-free gameplay as well as the wide range of settings on the game.
