Mazooma Slots

Mazooma slots are online and mobile-capable slot machines
produced by Mazooma Interactive Games. MIG, as the company calls
itself, has been garnering more attention lately, thanks to
their acquisition by Novomatic, Mazooma has been in the machine
game design business since 1997. Like many online gambling game
design houses, Mazooma started out as a provider of land-based
games before re-focusing on the Web-based and mobile markets in
the first decade of the 2000s.

MIG’s focus is now firmly on creating online and mobile
gambling content, mostly in the United Kingdom, but increasingly
in international markets as well. Mazooma has a strong presence
in the popular UK Bingo market, though they’ve yet to expand
those holdings outside of England, Scotland, and Wales.

Though the majority of MIG slot machines are five reel slots
with twenty pay lines, they do occasionally create an
interesting bonus game or other machine feature. The company’s
biggest innovation in the world of online slot design has been
the Community Concept. This system allows up to 40 players to
participate simultaneously in special game bonus rounds. The
more players who participate, the larger the potential jackpots,
with top prizes hovering around $250,000. We’ll discuss this
feature more in the game reviews further down the page.

About Mazooma

You won’t read much about Mazooma – they’re not one of the
biggest, flashiest, or best-known names in the online slot
design business. Now that they’re technically part of the
Novomatic Group, you’re even less likely to see people talk
specifically about MIG slots. But they’ve been in the business
for nearly twenty years, and their titles are now available at
dozens of online casinos, including the placement of most of
their small slot library at big name sites like the following.

  • William Hill
  • 888 Games
  • Betfair
  • Paddy Power
  • Unibet
  • Ladbrokes
  • Betsson
  • BetVictor

Mazooma Slot Machines

The current lineup of Web-based and mobile-capable Mazooma
slot machines is small. According to their website, their entire
portfolio includes just twenty-one games. The main reason for
the small library is that MIG technically re-launched in 2010 as
an entirely new company, throwing out most of their old game
designs to focus on the new online market. With the guiding hand
of Novomatic working in the background, we’re sure that Mazooma
will be releasing several new titles a year for the next few
years, to shore up and establish their (admittedly-small) online

Below is a guide to seven of MIG’s most-popular and
most-hosted online and mobile slot games:

Haul of Hades

Haul of Hades is a five reel and twenty pay line slot based
on the Greek myth of Hades. Featuring imagery of the river Styx,
characters from the ancient Greek underworld, and other mythical
figures, Haul of Hades is a rare visual delight from the
Novomatic Group. Between the animated lightning strikes and
menacing bats flying around, the atmosphere is complete. Typical
of Mazooma and Novomatic games, Haul of Hades’ biggest jackpot
is worth just $2,000. Haul of Hades includes the standard
Novomatic-style gamble feature, which allows players to double
their winnings by guessing the color of the next card from a
virtual deck. Haul of Hades lacks bonus rounds, though the wild
and scatter symbols appear frequently enough to warrant mention
as a special feature.

Jingle Jackpot

Jingle Jackpot is a five reel and ten pay line holiday-themed
slot by Mazooma/Novomatic. Christmas-themed slots are
surprisingly popular. When you’ve been reviewing slot games for
more than a decade like we have, you’ve seen and played your
fair share. But Jingle Jackpot is a standout game, because it
includes a progressive jackpot, frequent wins thanks to the
inclusion of several special symbols, and it has a more complex
soundtrack than most of these games, playing a rotation of a
half-dozen different traditional Christmas tunes. The game’s top
fixed prize is worth $5,000, but the progressive jackpot often
drifts up into the millions of credits, with the top payout of
all-time being a little more than $60,000 around Christmas 2014.

Shooting Stars

Shooting Stars was originally a land-based Mazooma game, but
exists now only as an online and mobile-compatible slot machine.
The theme is deep space, without much of a plot, but with
beautiful graphics and animations. You’ll fly past exotic suns,
ringed alien planets, and special expanding star wild symbols
and audio effects. The end-result is a game without much replay
value, but with a lot going for it in other areas. Okay, so the
top payout is a disappointing $2,500 – that’s just how
Mazooma/Novomatic games are. Don’t overlook the value of
simplicity. Shooting Stars uses just eight game symbols, so the
pay table is a cinch, and game play is beautifully-mindless. The
massive betting range (between $0.04 and $10 per spin) means
that players with all bankroll sizes can play. Space games are
always popular, and Shooting Stars is an example of why. Even
the otherwise-simplistic playing card reel symbols are drawn as
celestial bodies and animated to orbit and sparkle against the
deep black background. That’s what this game is all about – not
bonus rounds and progressive jackpots, but pretty images and
simple game play.

Frogs Fairy Tale

Frogs Fairy Tale is a novelty game starring a fantastic frog
and a weird enchanted forest. The basic story follows the
classic Princess and the Frog plot, though a progressive jackpot
is thrown in to increase replay value and draw in online slot
fans obsessed with those ever-increasing top prizes. This five
reel and twenty pay line slot is typical of Mazooma design,
including their famous Gamble Feature, a progressive jackpot
that hovers in the millions of credits, and both a wild and
scatter symbol. Frogs Fairy Tale is one of Mazooma’s more
intricate games in terms of plot, animation, and effects, though
the low top payout ($2,500) takes away from the company’s
attempt to produce a slot that’s highly-replayable.

Dragon’s Wild Fire

Dragon’s Wild Fire is a Far East-themed slot game. From the
yin-yang symbol in the game’s title to the Asian-style dragon
and gorgeous red pagoda in the background, Dragon’s Wild Fire
makes its theme known right from the start. Dragon’s Wild Fire
is an odd game from Mazooma, since it includes seven bonus
games, and is otherwise heavily-featured. Where most Mazooma
slots are satisfied with a single wild and scatter symbol,
Dragon’s Wild Fire includes multiple versions of both as well as
a frequently-triggered set of seven different bonus games. Like
many of the more-heavily featured MIG slots, Dragon’s Wild Fire
allows a wide range of bets, from $0.02 to $10 per spin. That
progressive top prize? It hovers in the neighborhood of
5,000,000 credits, though the record payout was just over 6
million sometime in 2015.

Cops n Robbers

Cops n Robbers is one of Mazooma’s best-known titles,
originally a land-based game popular across the UK. The game is
now available exclusively online and on several
mobile-compatible platforms. The theme, which should be obvious
from the name, is the classic contest between police and
thieves. This is a five reel slot with twenty pay lines, three
bonus rounds that pay instant credit prizes and free spins, and
a max prize of $4,000, which you can double to $8,000 by means
of MIG’s standard Gamble Feature. The bonus rounds have you in
the role of the robber, as you crack safes, steal cash, and
escape on foot. It’s one of Mazooma’s most complete slot games,
with an engaging plot, lucrative bonus rounds, and a cult-like
following among online and mobile slot gamblers.

Diamonds of Fortune

Diamonds of Fortune is Mazooma’s most-lucrative slot, at
least in terms of the game’s fixed prizes. The highest fixed
jackpot on Mazooma’s Diamonds of Fortune is worth $5,000, which
you can double to $10,000 either by means of lining up a
specific number of scatter symbols or by taking advantage of
Mazooma’s standard Gamble Feature. Though one of the big knocks
on MIG/Novomatic is that their slots pay out relatively-small
top prizes, Diamonds of Fortune is an exception. The game
doesn’t have any real theme, except for the fact that all the
symbols and animations are related to precious gemstones and
metals. This sort of game is often really popular at online
casinos, for its simplicity and the fact that it promises big
paydays. The same is true of Diamonds of Fortune, which is one
of MIG’s most popular (and also most boring) slot releases.


You may never have heard of Mazooma before you clicked on
this page – and that’s okay. The folks behind MIG’s online games
aren’t particularly attention-starved. It’s difficult to find
even a list of names of their management. Since their
acquisition by Novomatic, we expect this sort of secrecy to
continue. Novomatic snatched up Mazooma because of their ability
to translate land-based titles into popular mobile and
Web-capable slots. Hopefully over the next few years they’ll
continue to research innovations and produce solid video slot
games from online casinos all over the world.
