Featuring music plucked from the strings of an epic soundtrack, Hidden Valley from QuickSpin explores the concept of the secret paradise of Shangri-La in the construction of a slot featuring free spins, a bonus wheel and multiplier wilds.
Path to Paradise
The story follows two travellers to Tibet who’ve discovered the hidden valley of Shangri-La. It is illustrated like a beautiful picture book using pastel-like colours to imagine a paradise of waterfalls, trees and flowers. This slot game has 3-4-4-4-3 reels and 40 fixed paylines slot which includes three medium-value character symbols: a man, a woman and a Himalayan man (Sherpa).
Perpetuating the idyllic beauty and power are the bald eagle and mighty ox. There are five lower–win symbols consisting of royal flush icons. In addition to the wonderful music, you’ll also find enchanting sound effects triggered by payline wins or triggered features.
Random Multiplier Wild
On any given spin a random multiplier is attached to each wild, the range of which is contingent on your bet size. The multiplier ranges from x1 to x2 on a bet level of 1 to a multiplier range of x4 to x10 on a bet level of 4. The wild substitutes for any symbol outside of the bonus scatter, and you’ll find that it appears regularly. The wilds may also appear stacked, and we did find that we were successful in triggering multiple wins with their help.
Bonus Wheel & Free Spins
The free spins feature is unlocked with three bonus scatter symbols appearing on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. You will also receive a reward of x2 bet. During the feature, it is possible to collect additional free spins or extra wild symbols when you land two more bonus scatter symbols. We should mention that the original number of free spins is determined by the result of a spin on the bonus wheel located at the gates to the Valley. This spin will determine whether you will collect extra wilds and also determine the number of free spins.
Should you be successful in collecting extra wilds, then you’ll find that one of the three medium-win symbols may be transformed into an extra wild. We noted that triggering the free spins was difficult, but not impossible, so you may need to play it for a while. This is a good reason as you are more likely to win a larger amount during the free spins as a pose to the base games.
Hidden Valley slot can be played on mobile, tablet or pc and is compatible with iOS and Android devices when you’re on the move. Shangri-La was re-launched August 14 in HTML 5. The game has an RTP that varies according to bet level which ranges from 95.7%, up to 96.5%.
Based on a fictional paradise described in the novel, Lost Horizon by the British author James Hilton in 1933, this slot combines entertaining features, graphics and audio with exciting features which we found entertaining.
