Many have wondered what it means to ponder an orb, what mysteries lie beneath the crystal ball that any claim will give glimpses of the future. Well, online slot game developer ELK Studios has been pondering that exact same question as well and have come up with their very own interpretation.

Mystic Orbs will see you delving deep into a cave of enigma where the powerful dragon Ying Long resides. Use the power of the mysterious spheres to lure this dragon out so that you can get in and claim the treasure that dwells within as your own!

We have made the pilgrimage ourselves so that we can best prepare all those that wish to venture themselves! Read on as we outline all the bonus features, extras, symbols, and mechanics of this title so that you can be best prepared for Ying Long yourself.

Theme & Symbols

This game draws its inspiration from the mystical dragon folk tales of the far East. In these tales, long, slender, elegant, and regal dragons are often magical and guardians of vast riches and treasures. If you’re able to convince, or trick, the dragon into letting you in its lair you might be able to make off some of those treasures yourself.

Loading into the game you might catch a little fright when the title card is yelled out at you. It’s alarming at first but very quickly builds up your excitement to play the game. There are a few audio details that make the game feel real, whenever you drop the symbols there’s a slight grinding sound that gives off the impression that stone slabs are moving about. The music in this title is a remixed version of a classic oriental tune, it works incredibly well.

Animations are smooth and graphics aren’t half bad. There is clearly a lot of love that has been poured into making this vision a reality. While there aren’t any background animations, it’s certainly not a game-breaker by any means.

Everything comes together nicely in this title, it all feels authentic and fun while not taking itself too seriously. This entry is a perfect addition to the producer’s catalogue.

Symbols

Three basic runes represent the low-paying symbols that you’ll be seeing quite often. Yingyang, a medallion, and a special character are what you should get used to seeing as you drop the reels.

Next up we have the higher paying images. Detailed carvings of four different animals along with a golden idol are all that you should keep an eye out for during your time spent with the title.

Three different Wilds are present in the game. A standard Wild will substitute for any other common token in the game, allowing bigger or longer combos to form. A Wild Orb will activate a feature directly above it in the Feature Row. The Charged Wild Orb will activate all the features in the Feature Row. Should an orb contribute to a win, it will be removed along with the winning combo but if it doesn’t, it will explode and take out symbols in a radius around it.

Online Betting Options & Features

Mystic Orbs is a cascading video slot that is built up with a 5×5 grid. Above the grid sits the Feature Row which is 5-reels and 1-row in diameter. Rather disappointingly, the theoretical return to player rate is around 95%. Bets are able to range from 0.20 – 100 coins per spin allowing for a decent amount of game customisation. Volatility is rated to be medium.

Features

This title uses the classic cascading avalanche feature where winning symbols are removed and new ones fall into the removed spaces.

The Feature Row plays a huge role in this particular title. Different symbols might appear on the row each time a spin occurs. Features that can appear on the row include:

  • Bonus: Contributes towards the bonus game.
  • Extra Life: Awards an additional symbol drop when no further winning combinations can be formed.
  • Orb Payout: Pays out the value times the placed bet.
  • Multiplier: Adds its displayed value to the total multiplier.
  • Upgrade: Upgrades all instances of a set symbol into a higher value symbol that lasts for 3 avalanches. 
  • Orb Siege: A symbol that is adjacent to an orb will be chosen at random to surround the Orb Wild.

In order to trigger the bonus game, you’ll need to land 5 Orb Wilds or collect enough Bonuses from the Feature Row. During these spins is when the multiplier is active. 

Come and ponder these mysterious orbs while trying to earn a big win. For more from ELK Studios, we suggest having a look at Stars Of Orion.
