Personal review of the tester:
I really liked the Secret of the Stones video slot. This is one of my favourite games. Just feel wild reel 2 + wild reel 4 + owl wild during bonus feature and you fall in love with this machine. There is a large number of Wild symbols, even in normal mode you may keep your balance positive, and the bonus game is simply breathtaking. Strongly recommend to play at 1, 5, 12.5 and 25 Euros rates. During the bonus game follow the simple rule, one stone per line. Choose the stones which are not too close to each other. Strongly recomended for real money play.
- There are 25 active lines.
- Five reels and three horizontal standard lines.
- Dimensions rates can be set from 25 cents (1 cent per line on 25 lines) to 125 euros (5 euros per line on 25 lines).
- The bet rates start from 25 cents (1 cent per line, 25 lines) to 125 Euros (5 Euros per line, 25 lines).
- The Secrets of the Stones slot return (RTP) is 96.7%, and the maximum winning is up to 350 000 coins.
- The game is played from left to right, one way only. The dropped Scatter symbols activate the bonus feature.
Bonus feature and free spins:
If you are lucky getting three Scatter symbols, no matter where they are dropped on the playing field, the bonus game is yours. If you get four or five Scatters, the number of stones which may be opened increases to four and five, respectively.
- The bonus game starts with stones. Under each of them is an extra bonus feature. You may open three of them and you can get the following features:
- Wild reel 2 or 4 — the entire second or forth reel (vertically) are substituted by Wild symbols. They do not change their position during the free games.
- Multiplier x1 — all the free spins winnings are multiplied by two. If selecting the bonus games to be multiplied by 1 and 2, you will get a game multiplied by 4. You may select up to 8 multipliers.
- Free spins + - depending on the number of free spins won, they will be added to the standard number of spins. The best choice in this category is the Free spins +10. The maximum number of games that you may win while opening the stones is 38.
- An image with a Wild inscription —the symbol will become a Wild symbol during the free spins.
- Obviously, the maximum winnings will be during the bonus game. One of the best selections of the stones will be the filling of Wild symbols on reels 2 and 4 and the selection of 10 extra free spins (or x2 multiplier, or additional wild symbol, or the selection of the Owl as a Wild symbol).
Besides the cards symbols that are paid according to the seniority in the deck, the big symbols reflect the main theme of the slot. Let us look at them a little closer:
- Red Bull image is the biggest symbol. By getting five matching red bulls you get 1250 coins on the line.
- Owl gives you 750 coins when dropped five matching symbols on the pay-line.
- The yellow bull pays 500 coins, blue bull - 300 coins, and the snake symbol, being the smallest in this category, gives you 200 coins on the line.
- The cards symbols are paid according to the seniority in the deck. Five ACES pay 150 coins on the line, the Kings give you 125 coins. Five Queens bring 100 coins, the Jacks pay 75 coins, and for five tens you will get only 50 coins on the line.
