3 Blind Mice : Cheese Symbols Turn into Wilds and Possibly Trigger a Bonus Feature!
3 Blind Mice, is an amusing 20 payline online slot created by SUNFOX for the Leander Games online casino network. The 3 sightless mice are active participants, not as matched reel elements that land positions in a payline, but as bystanders waiting to transform a Cheese image into a Wild. There is a chance for other good things to happen beyond the Wild transformation. The Cheese Wild along with the active Mouse stays around for the next spin, possibly triggering any one of six (6) Bonus Features.
3 Blind Mice slot players are in for more surprises, as those features could be awarded at random, any time before a paid spin launches. The Cheese Wilds may become sticky, or turn Reel 3 into a full-reel image of the Farmers Wife Wild. They may get to play a mini interactive bonus game several times over, whacking mice and earning rewards for every hit. Vie for bigger wins in the Big Cheese Trail Game, as it may culminate in the Big Cheese Wheel of Fortune.
There are only two top paying icons, the Ham Leg and Jar of Orange Marmalade. All the rest are loaves of bread formed into lesser paying A, K, Q, J, and 10 Symbols. The Ham Leg awards 40, 100, or 500 coin credits on a 3, 4, or 5-symbol payline win, whichever of those groupings occur as longest winning combo in a payline. The Orange Marmalade award 20, 50, or 250, respectively for the same number of matched icons occurring per payline. The A, K, Q, J, and 10 are low-win symbols but they tend to bring frequent wins, ranging from 5 to 150 coin credits.
3 Blind Mice Online Slot: Wild Symbol
A Cheese icon becomes a Wild only if it lands on the first reel, as this is the position nearest a Blind Mice. If more than one Cheese icon appears in the same row, starting from the leftmost reel, the mouse will go to the farthest Cheese and turn it into a Wild. The Cheese Wild will remain on that reel to await the outcome of the next spin.
Another Cheese icon that annexes to a sticky Cheese Wild in the same row will also turn into a Wild, and likewise remain stuck to the reels for the next spin. This could go on repeatedly for as long as a new Cheese icon appears next to the Cheese Wilds already in place.
A more advantageous result is when a string of Cheese Wild icons connects to a Bonus Symbol landing on the same row; the resulting combination will trigger the related Bonus Feature.
On the other hand, if the next positions do not come up with a Cheese image for that row, the Mice will go back to its hole in the wall.
