Look and Feel
As you’d expect from Elk Studios the graphics in Hidden slot are sharp and top notch. This game is a mile away from the Cash Splash 3 Reel slot and other more traditional fruit machines.
In the 3D animated intro, we meet Professor Taylor and his nephew who board a plane headed for Egypt in an attempt to solve an ancient mystery! The background of the reels is set in Cairo, and you’ll see the Great Pyramids at Giza, the yellow sands of desert and swinging green palm trees. Thumbs up!
Hidden is a 5 reel slot with 4 rows and 178 ways to win- quite a few more than other game like the Ho Ho Tower slot and Wild Toro. It also features exploding symbols which means that after every win, the symbols in a winning combination will blow up, and new symbols from above will fall into their place creating new combos.
Your symbols on the ancient reels are made up of the standard the 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards as your lower paying symbols, plus a load of camels, some Sphinxes, Benjamin and Professor Taylor as your higher value icons.
The Wild symbol in Hidden says ‘Wild’ on a gold shiny icon, and this cheeky hieroglyph will substitute for all other symbols on the reels except the Scatter. Speaking of which, the Scatter is a magnifying glass on what looks like an old parchment map.
Treasure Room Free Spins
Land 3x of magnifying glass Scatters on any reel positions and it’s Free Spins time for you! You’ll start off with 5 free spins, but every additional magnifying glass you land will give you an extra go. Next, 1 of the symbols present on screen is randomly selected to be an ‘expanding’ icon for the bonus game. During the Free Spins, this symbol will then expand to 2×2, creating ruddy great big blocks of identical symbols.
Next, the normal symbols are cleared away to make room for a second symbol drop and a load more potential new winning combos. And if it’s a high value symbol that’s been chosen, you really are going to be reaping in the Pharoah’s riches!
Flashback Re-Spins This is an awesome randomly activated feature and can be triggered at any time to give you some nice cash wins! The sky and clouds change as you are sent back in time to ancient Egypt, to get a glimpse of what the pyramids once looked like. During the 3x Flashback Respins you’re also given sticky wilds on 1, 2 and 3 to add to the fun and frolics.
We like Hidden slot! Ok, so the theme has been done to death but the crisp visuals and rewarding bonuses more than make up for it. Will you uncover the treasures of this ancient world and claim some of them as your own? We recommend you give this excellent new slot a spin – you wont be disappointed.
