Once the player talks a closer look at the reels they will see that there are some miniature figures in the corners and around the edge of the paying screen. These figures are characters from the Coffee House mystery and offer players various winning opportunities that involve wild symbols and each of the characters offer different rewards as detailed below:
Landing Detective Dan will see an expanding wild appear from one of the corners of the reels and cover 2x2 reel positions.
Office John will appear on the third reel and expands to cover the reel with an expanding wild.
Land Miss Lucy and expanding wilds in the shape of a cross will appear and cover five symbol spaces but will only make an appearance on the first or last three reels. Land expresso and you will have landed the best of them all as you will be rewarded with expanding wilds covering nine positions on the middle three reels. This feature pays well if the right symbols fall on the outer reels.
Players that are lucky enough to land the bonus symbol on the first, third and fifth reels will activate the free spins feature. Players begin the feature with ten free spins but there is the chance to trigger the feature again twice. When in the free spins players will see that there are two smaller reel sets and if these are opened by a retrigger players could see 15 free reels spinning one after another. Better still, all the mystery wild features can also be activated during the free spins feature too.
Coffee House Mystery the slot game looks and feels like a land-based slot which players have come to expect from the developers at Merkur. The gold and soft brown colour scheme and soothing soundtrack make this the perfect slot machines to while away many hours, although the most attractive feature must be the 96.95% RTP offered.
In comparison with other slots offered by Merkur such as Crystal Heart and Pharaoh’s Riches this slot is volatile but overall there is a good balance of wins on offer in the base game and the features particularly if the players lands some of the big expanding wilds, doing so will certainly see you wanting to return to this coffee house!
