Secrets of the Amazon Slot Overview
Secrets of the Amazon is the title of an online video slot game created by casino software developer Playtech. This slot plays out over 5 reels and 20 paylines, and is based on a theme of ancient untouched jungles and elusive tribal civilisations, focussing on the lush vegetation and animal populations of the Amazon.
The main bonus feature in Secrets of the Amazon is its free spins feature. This free spins feature is triggered with scatter symbols and will award players up to 20 free spins, depending on the number of scatters that landed in the base game. An increasing multiplier is also featured during the free spins.
Game Play and Graphics
Secrets of the Amazon is based in the lush Amazon jungle, and the game plays out against a backdrop of towering trees and tropical flowers and fungi, which also forms the setting for the uniquely designed pay table. Amid this overgrown forest scene are the slot’s reels, which are formed by tangled vines and branches. The reels are bright glowing green in colour, and on them are an assortment of exotic animals and a girl donning tribal face paint and a large pink lily in her hair.
On the Reels
On the reels of the Secrets of the Amazon slot are a number of theme-related symbols. These include tropical animals such as red snakes, chameleons, multicoloured tree frogs, cockatoos, toucans, leopards and black panthers, all displayed in rich and vivid colours.
Wild Symbol and Jackpot Payout
The Amazonian tribal girl icon acts as the Secrets of the Amazon wild symbol. This wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols in the game except for the scatter symbol, helping to complete winning combinations. The value of any winning combinations in which the tribal girl wild symbol has substituted another symbol will be doubled.
This wild symbol is also the Secrets of the Amazon slot’s highest paying symbol, awarding a jackpot of 50,000 coins when 5 symbols appear on an activated payline.
The graphic of a cluster of moonflowers serves as the Secrets of the Amazon scatter symbol. Landing 3 or more of these scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the game’s main free spins feature, and also award scatter pays.
Free Spins Feature
Once the free spins feature has been activated, players will be given a choice of 3 moonflowers on the screen. Choosing one of these flowers will award players a number of free spins that depends on how many scatter symbols landed to activate the feature. 3 scatter symbols will award between 5 and 15 free spins, 4 scatters will award between 8 and 18 free spins and 5 scatter symbols will award players anywhere between 10 and 20 free spins.
Once the free spins begin, the first spin will begin with a 1x multiplier. With each following spin, the multiplier value will increase by 1 until the feature ends. Landing 3 more scatter symbols during the free spins will award up to 50 more free spins, and subsequently a multiplier value of up to 50x with the last spin.
