Mighty Hat: Mine O' Mine Review
Wonder what happens when you combine mining slots with magic? You will get the strange but grand result of Mighty Hat: Mine O' Mine. Created by Playtech, this magic slot takes players on an adventure deep into the mines to find a mystical hat.
Along the way, players will find 5-reels with 243 ways to win. Throughout the adventure, everything revolves around a special lamp leading to free spins, special spins, respins, treasure chests and even fixed jackpots! If that's not a big enough reason to find this hat, then we don't know what is!
When Mighty Hat: Mine O' Mine opens up, you'll be taken back to a time where slots look terrible. The overall design of this slot looks incredibly outdated with a blurry static image of a mine.
On the reels, there are different symbols varying from gold mining prospectors, dogs, diamonds and an explorer lady. Next to the left of the reels, there is a strange-looking hat with scary eyes and a purple hat. The Mighty Hat character and the symbols on the reel feel completely different and like they were two different games thrown together.
The Mighty Hat is absolutely terrifying and looks like Mr Hankey (from South Park) but in hat form. Whilst it looks absolutely terrible, he is valuable throughout the slot so he does have worth.
During the base game, there is barely any audio except a few spin sounds. During bonus rounds, music starts to play but it feels like music from a game show. Overall, the audio is all over the place - but so is the design.
Everything in this slot revolves around the special lamp that lands on the reels. This leads to free spins, special spins, respins, treasure chests and fixed jackpots! Everything you could ever want is literally right here!
The user interface is quite simple but easy to navigate. The slot developers have gone for a minimalistic style with the spin button to the right with the bet level. All other menus can be found to the left of the screen.
Mighty Hat: Mine O' Mine actually surprised us with the win potential considering this is a Playtech slot. Firstly, the RTP was way above the average that we expected with a solid amount of 96.24%. In addition to this, there is a medium to high volatility level leaning more towards the higher side with bigger wins less frequently.
Sadly, we were left disappointed with the maximum win of only 2,000x stake. Up to 1,000x the stake can be won through the fixed jackpots and we assume this is where the biggest wins will appear. Despite the maximum win being quite low, we never experienced terrible wins throughout and were thoroughly satisfied with what we received.
Mighty Hat: Mine O' Mine is a terrible slot in terms of the design - but the rest of the game is pretty excellent. The gameplay and features are definitely the shining stars of this slot making it worth a spin.
Whilst the maximum win may not be anything spectacular, the rest of the statistics work together to even it out a little. Don't judge a book by its cover as Mighty Hat: Mine O' Mine is a delight to play from start to finish.
