Pragmatic Play – Mystic Chief – Free Slot Game

At the time of writing, we have exactly 111 Native American-themed slots in our catalog, and Mystic Chief by is neither the best nor the worst among them. The audiovisual presentation is perhaps a bit cliché in some ways, but there’s still enough to make for an entertaining “nature spirit” session. Animated symbols, animal sounds and an overall otherworldly atmosphere make sure of that.

The 3-4-4-3 grid is set in the middle of an Indian tipi camp at night, with desert mountains in the dimly lit background. The reels are filled with animals, Indian paraphernalia, and a badass looking Indian woman as the top level symbol. Everything revolves around the Chief Expanding Multiplier Wild feature, which can be expanded with additional random wilds in the 2-level Super Bonus round.

Bonus Features at Mystic Chief Slot

The premium symbols animate when you win and each has a distinctive sound. They pay between 1.5 and 5 times your bet for 5 of a kind, and you also have a couple of wild features, which we’ll take a closer look at below.

The boss wild appears as a normal 1×1 symbol , but is extended to the entire reel . It can only land on the 3 middle reels, and Wilds substitute for all regular payout symbols to help you complete winning combinations. Each expanding wild comes with a random multiplier between x1 and x10, and the multipliers are added if more than one wild is part of a win.

If you land 2 Dreamcatcher symbols on the same spin in the base game, you will see a random selection of payout symbols turn into 1×1 normal sized wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 . The dreamcatcher symbols land only on reels 1 and 5 and this feature is triggered semi-regularly in the base game.

The golden scatter also lands only on the 3 middle reels, and you need 3 anywhere on the same spin to trigger the bonus round. This awards 8 free spins and gives you 1 expanding wild that moves on the 3 middle reels per free spin . You win +1 extra spin per scatter you land, while 2 scatters award +2 extra spins and upgrade the feature to Super Free Spins mode .

When Super Free Spins mode is triggered, the 2 triggering scatters remain sticky for the duration of the feature. This means that a random number of symbols on the 3 middle reels per spin will be converted into regular 1×1 Wilds . There is no way to retrigger the Super Spins, but it gives you much more wild action while it lasts.

You can see the base game for a while as the 4:20 minute highlights video begins and the bonus round is triggered around the 1 minute mark. We managed to update the feature to Super Free Spins after a while, and you can see for yourself how it all went by clicking the play button below.

Rating Conclusion

Pragmatic Play has come up with a visually appealing Native American-themed release in Mystic Chief, and it’s not a bad game overall. Enough effort has been put into the theme to create a certain nature spirit atmosphere, but the features are hardly original. The 576 win ways mean that decent payouts are possible despite low total symbol values, but you’ll most likely need extended wild multiplier boosts to crack the 5,000x potential.

Landing 3 extended x10 multiplier wilds on the 3 middle reels is technically possible, but we only ever saw 1 extended wild at a time during our testing session. The 2-stage bonus round is somewhat entertaining, although the sticky triggering scatters block the premium “Reel Estate” on reels 1 and 5 in Super mode. Overall, far from the worst Indian slot we’ve tried, but not exactly the best either.


Up to 3 expanding multiplier wilds up to x10.
FS with 1 guaranteed expanded wild per spin
Super FS with sticky scatters that trigger random wilds
Wins up to 5,000 times your bet
