Design, Gameplay and slot game review
The Hidden Riches slot machine is set deep in the Aztec jungle filled with different artifacts that you will use to make winning combinations. The game’s background is the deep wild jungle. The sub-windows are made of relic statues. The symbols are composed of different objects and figures that are commonly found in jungle adventure movies. Everything is in impressive graphics with good details and very engaging looks.

The game has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 25 available pay lines that would give you a maximum of $125 bet in a single spin. The betting range has well varied amounts that would suit many types of players, from the low-stake casual player up to the big time high-rollers.

The symbols in the game are also based on an archaeological adventure and these include the Adventurer, the Tablet, the Aztec Ruins, the Adventurer’s Assistant, the Gem, the Aztec Idol, the Cobra, the Compass, the Necklace, the Vase, the Treasure Map, and the Machete. Among these symbols are special symbols that can increase you winnings by taking the role of the other symbols or providing bonuses and free spins.
The first special symbol is the Adventurer which acts as the Wild symbol. What this Wild symbol does is to substitute to any symbol, except for the Scatter, in order to complete a winning combination in an active pay line. Although this symbol only appears on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th reels, it will double your winnings whenever it participate in a winning combination. With the Adventurer symbol’s ability to double a winning combination’s payout, the Adventurer symbol can boost the highest paying symbol, the Aztec Ruins symbol, from 5,000 coins to 10,000 coins. The same effect can be done with the next high paying symbol, the Adventurer’s Assistant, from 2,500 to 5,000.
The next special symbol is the Tablet symbol which serves as the Scatter symbol. This symbol provides payout multipliers. Hitting 2, 3, 4, or 5 Scatter symbols will give out 1x, 3x, 10x, and 100x multipliers, respectively.
