Are you a slot-machine freak? You've got two options. We would recommend that you immediately sniff out a compulsive gambling support group. Of course, you could also pursue your guilty pleasure with this innocent time-killer. NEO Mystery Bonus is a painfully addictive (and incredibly simple) slot game that requires you to line up matching symbols in a row. Period. End of review? Well, OK. There is a bit more to this pocket-sized pleaser.
If you succeed in lining up three question-mark icons in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row, you'll gain access to the special "Mystery Bonus" mode--which is a pretty rare feat, to be sure. It took us several hours of gameplay before we finally hit pay dirt. Once in this special mode, you have to again line up items to score more points. The special mode merely ups the stakes a bit. OK, so we were a bit disappointed in the payoff--but we still find ourselves glued to this gambling game. (Maybe we should consider joining that support group after all?) --Brett Atwood
- Simple concept

- Cheaper than Vegas
- Promised "mystery" isn't much
