Review and recommendations from the testing team
- The gameplay of The Secrets of London slot has combined two types of bonus features at once. The classic free spins + multiplier and a bonus feature with only one randomly selected bonus symbol (similar to Legendary Rome slot). This was compensated by the developer, with not very high prizes for payment combinations, the gameplay of this slot also keeps a bad balance while waiting for the bonus features. During the usual spins, most winnings are small and ranging from less the nominal bet size to several bets. The Secrets of London is able to make a series of spins without any wins. The potential to win 20+ bets in the usual spins is minimal, and during testing top combinations were not given.
- The distances for the free spins or the bonus feature to be triggered are above average, which happens because the slot has two different scatter symbols. On average, launches are awarded once on every 100-200 spins. The bonus feature is triggered more often and the slot is able to make small series of 2-3.
- The free spins are triggered by three or more scatter symbols, 7 free spins are awarded and multiplier x3. Compared to the bonus feature, free spins have a higher potential, and the slot is able to give payment combination of 75 bets. Which in combination with the multiplier, will give total winnings of 225+ bets. However, the high potential is not often realized. The average wins for the free spins feature during testing were only 40x bets and below. Less often, the payouts were between 15x-20x, same as the bigger payments of 60x-70x total bets.
- Three bonus symbols will trigger 5 free spins, with one random type of symbol played as wild symbol. Despite the fact that the potential of this type of bonus feature seems to be higher, it should be mentioned that the payments during it are lower. The maximum payout for a single pay line was 37.5 bets. The average winning for this bonus feature during testing was 80x total bets. Less often, the payments were between 30x-60x, same as the bigger payouts of 100x-130x bets.
I will leave only neutral recommendations for The Secrets of London slot while playing with an active bonus. I believe that there are better slots for fulfilling the wager. While playing for real money, long distances of spins are not recommended, since the slot does not have the high potential of triggering big winnings of several hundred bets. However, it is able to award a series of average payments in the short and medium distances. I would not recommend progressive betting strategies, but it is quite possible to increase the bet on short intervals, after the bonus feature ends, since, at times, the slot launch them in series.
