The Bermuda Mysteries is an online video slots game by NextGen Gaming that has a mystery theme, for its players to enjoy. There are 25 paylines; free spins; a gamble feature and a pick-‘em bonus provided for those who choose to take its reels for a spin.
Just off the western coast of Florida in the United States of America, lies a somewhat triangular area of ocean believed by many to be the cause of a series of ships and planes vanishing as if into thin air. It is bordered by Bermuda; Miami; and Puerto Rico, and has been the subject of speculation since the phrase was first coined in 1964 by the writer Vincent Gaddis, and has seen many people disappear without a trace for unknown reasons, as well as been the subject of weird reports by those who have managed to survive an encounter with it. The Bermuda Mysteries takes the story a little further, and NextGen throws in the chance of some real money returns with the slots game it has developed and released under this title.
The Bermuda Mysteries slots by NextGen Gaming plays out over five reels; with three rows of symbols and 25 paylines for players to make use of, and the background for play is a green-hued view of this mysterious part of the world, lashed by rain, with a metallic set of reels in the forefront.

The higher value symbols for The Bermuda Mysteries online slots include a lifejacket; a ship radio; a ship; and a fighter plane from the Second World War era, and the lower valued icons are the playing card symbols of nine; ten; jack; queen; king and ace.

Bonus Features for The Bermuda Mysteries Slots
Players who manage to land a minimum of three of the golden badge icons anywhere on their reels will be awarded 12 free spins. A green radar icon is added to the fifth reel, and each time this symbol lands here the multiplier for the round in question will be increased by 1x. Although players are unable to retrigger the free spins round from within this section of the game, it is possible to activate the Rescue Bonus round from here.
The Rescue Bonus mini-game can be activated from within both the base game and the free spins games, and this is done by landing a minimum of three of the map symbols anywhere on the reels. When this occurs, players will be transported to a radar station, and all that is required of them is a selection of the places identified on the map’s display. When players discover either a shipwreck or a sunken plane a prize will be awarded, increasing in size each time this occurs, but locating a broken compass; encountering a freak wave, whirlpool or wormhole; or coming across a UFO will bring the bonus round to an immediate stop.
