Review and recommendations by our testing team
- Hidden Valley slot potential is very good because the game is giving a large number of wild symbols with multiplayer up to x10 and the potential to win up to 1000x bets. In the slot, you can regulate the speed of the gameplay and also the multiplier. When you choose small multiplier increase, x1 - x2, this will increase your bet size. Increasing the possible multiplier wild symbols to x2-x4 your bet is increased by 50%, the increase in multiplier to x3-x6 your bet is increased by 125%, and the increase in multiplier to x4-X10 your bet is increased by 200%. After the increase is chosen by the player, every spin wild symbol multiplier is randomly given between the numbers selected. The important thing is that multiplier is not working on all winning combinations, but only on those with wild symbol playing on them.
- In the usual spins, because of how the slot is made to give winnings (row type), it is able to make large series of spins without winning, but it is sometimes giving wins within 10x-20x bets. When you are waiting for the bonus feature, most of the time you will be losing balance, which is not paid back by those large winning up to 30x-40x bet (during testing it was possible to get a little more than 60x) that sometimes are given.
- The trigger of bonus features is given at standard distance for slots from this developer, which is often around 60-100 spins, and when longer distances happen, the slot gives a series of the bonus feature. Unlike some other developer slots, Hidden Valley does not have a high enough potential to get a bonus feature from the begin of the game session. When you trigger the bonus feature bonus wheel will open, on which you will be given the number of free spins, and can also trigger one of three extra wilds. The classic retrigger is not available at this game, but at the same time, when 2 or 3 scatter symbols are shown on the reels, opening them can give + free spins or more extra wild. Often during free spins, it is possible to replace all three symbols with wild, which, however, does not give you large win for sure, since wild symbols may not be in play, or can be in small numbers. Multiplier wild symbols as well as in the usual spins is chosen at random. More often the win during the free spins is 20x-50x bets, with sometimes minimum winnings from a few to 10x-15x total bets. In some of the more lucky sessions we managed to get bigger winnings in the range of 80x-140x, not that often reaching 200x total bets. The maximum win received during testing was 300+ bets, and the maximum win recorded by the developer was 435x bets.
- In the usual spins, this slot can make you lose balance very quick because the winnings in it are not very good. And don’t try to play this slot machine on long series of spins, because the potential to give big payment combinations is very low.
Hidden Valley is not recommended while playing with bonus money. Progressive betting strategies are not recommended. While playing for real money, I would recommend only short distances. As for the bonus feature (increasing the multiplier of wild symbols), it is normal that the minimum multiplier has a higher chance to trigger the top combination, but their cost will be small, and I would not risk the balance for a low win. The choice of the maximum multiplier reduces the chances of getting the top combinations, but it significantly increases its price if given, and personally, I would play with this bonus feature, but only at a short distance, preparing for the possible loss of the balance.
