It could be said that novelty is what grips a person in a world full of cut and dry. When everyone could wear the same pair of white-colored shoes to efficiently carry out the purpose of foot comfort, someone has to shake up the dullness of simple function by introducing flashy new patterns and colors.
Microgaming does that with its factory-line of slot machine models, and only adds a paint coat to make each stand out and appeal to an individual gambler’s personality.
“Mummy Munny” speaks to the heart of amateur Egyptologists (and provides the opportunity to fund an expedition) and horror enthusiasts who favor kitschy specialization whenever they choose to gamble online.
This 3-reel, 5-payline slot machine allows players a chance to unearth up to 5000 coins playing with a quarter or up to 5 dollars, the wild mummy symbol (a linen-wrapped, grin of a half-embalmed pharaoh-head) being the most valuable to have in triplicate. The color scheme is quite underwhelming, dealing heavily in gold, brown, and blue, a sort of chromatic hybrid falling somewhere between a golden sarcophagus and the Jeopardy logo.
The mummy motif goes little further beyond his comfortably-reposed state upon a mound of dirty gold coins below the reels and his capital manifestation through the wild symbol. Nonetheless, the game appears at least more interesting than similar ones, fundamental clones without so many production details (and that’s saying something).
