- Triggered by the Red/Purple Mystery Chest symbol appearing fully on reel 1
- royal symbols (A, K, Q and J) on reels Mystery Chest symbols (2 to 5 in the Red game; 1 to 4 in the Purple one)
- then the Mystery Chest will turn into a single random symbol, increasing the odds to land a winning combination
To increase the probability of activating these two types of bonus levels, Mystery Chest Nudge was added. When Stacked Mystery Chest symbols partially land on reel 1 – the stack can be nudged to fill the reel and trigger the above Mystery Chest Reveal.
This is a medium to high variance game, and it has an RTP of 96.51%.
