Mammoth Money from mFortune: Slot Review - break the ice to win big!
Ever wondered what it is like to come face to face with a magnificent woolly mammoth in the cold harsh climes of an Artic environment? If the answer is yes, then your luck is in as mFortune has created a slot all about this fantastic beast. The game is heavily influenced by the hugely successful Ice Age animation movies as it also features a sabre-toothed tiger and some acorns which are no doubt in close proximity to an anxious looking squirrel!
It is a 5 reel slot game with 9 paylines and comes with Free Spins and a Bonus Game called Acorn Hunt.
The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol and it is illustrated by a ferocious looking sabre-toothed tiger. It substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus Game and Free Spins symbols. It is the highest paying symbol in the game as if you land 5 of these symbols then you will be treated to an icetastic 2,000X your initial bet! Any combination of this symbol along with the Jackpot symbol that totals 5 symbols results in a wonderful 300x payout.
To trigger the Free Spins game, you will need to land 3 Free Spins symbols anywhere across the reels. The Free Spins symbol is depicted by the word “Free Spins” with a green background. It goes without saying, the more Free Spins symbols you land then the more Free Spins you will be awarded. Land 3 of these symbols and you will be awarded 5 Free Spins but If you are lucky enough to land 5 symbols then you will be given a nice set of 9 Free Spins!
Mammoth Money also features an excellent bonus game: Acorn Hunt. To trigger it you need to land 2 or more Bonus Game symbols in a row. The Bonus Game symbol is illustrated by a golden covered acorn and the more of these symbols you land, the greater the multipliers will become in the bonus game. This cool little game involves rolling a dice and moving a chipmunk around a board collecting multipliers all the while trying not to land on any red skulls or it is game over and you’ll be whisked back to the main game if you do. The main goal of the game is to land on the golden acorn as it can offer some huge payouts with multipliers ranging from 25 all the way up to 400!
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The graphics are highly polished with a cute cartoon-like style. The game is set against a cold arctic backdrop with lots of woolly mammoths slowly traversing the snow in the distance. Symbols consist of a range of mammoths, an acorn, a sabre-toothed tiger, and the usual A-J symbols. They fall neatly into place like blocks of ice when you spin the reels and this is a nice touch to tie in with the icy theme of the game. One thing to highlight is that the animations are fantastic as symbols pop and move and there always something that will catch your eye as you play the game.
The music is playful and bouncy with lots of drum noises and soft piano beats. It is quite reminiscent of the Ice Age movies which is a nice compliment as it suits the theme of this game perfectly.

Our Verdict on Mammoth Money
Mammoth Money is made by mFortune and it’s a very simple game to play with a highly original theme. I was able to trigger the Free Spins game quite frequently but I had to be a little more patient when it comes to activating the Bonus Game. However, it is well worth the wait as the payouts can be highly lucrative, just remember to avoid those red skulls at all costs! This game will appeal to most players who enjoy a fun and easy slot to play and the fact that there is a progressive jackpot to aim for as well will help draw in plenty more.
Aim for an ice-cool win in Mammoth Money!
