Let’s take a look at the Inca’s treasure slot, shall we? Hold your horses Wombat fans: we’re taking to foreign climes for a high-altitude romp in South America’s Andes Mountains.
You’ll need to get to grips with your gold fever to glimpse those riches.
Tom Horn Gaming has delivered us deep into a ceremonial city where the all-powerful sun god Inti controls the treasures- and dangers. It’s not as bright as the Respin Circus slot machine, but with all of that sun around it’s not a gloomy game either!
So let’s land right in the middle of an Inca’ gold rush and prepare to bow down to the gods, or go home empty-handed.
Look and Feel
The reels are set at the top of a ceremonial stone building set in a jungle city with gently blowing banana leaves (a perfect holiday snack for me). The last time I hiked up there I bumped into a load of birds in the Wild Turkey slot – now that’s a strange one.
Your reels are decorated in fetching multi-coloured feathers (those guys sure knew how to dress the part). The reels feature treasures and creatures of this nearly forgotten civilisation in classy and colourful graphics. Good work Tom Horn Gaming! This game brings us bang into the present with its good looks and slick gaming.
Inca’s Treasure Slot Game Play
The Inca Treasure slot is set over 3 rows, 5 reels and a meaty 20 pay-lines, just like the Pots of Luck slot and a few other games that I could mention.
The highest value icons are an Inca warrior holding a shield and spear and a woolly alpaca. The mid value icons are a golden bird statue, a clay decorative pot and a pan-pipe (just let me at it, I love to make a little mood music).
And the classic Ace through 9 of the card deck are the lower value symbols but it has to be said they look pretty as a picture.
The striking Wild is a high priest wearing a massive gold and feather headdress which subs for all icons, except the Scatter. The vital Scatter is a star-shaped golden emblem of the sun god Inti.
Similarly, there’s another high priest, in an even jazzier feather headgear, who is the special Wild which is only active during the free spins game.
Inca Treasure Bonus
As a priority, try and lure 3 or more the sun god Scatters onto the reels to gain access to the big bucks in the bonus feature, the Inca Treasure Bonus.
It’s time to get prepared to get your paws on the ancient booty on offer if you dare.
You’ll find yourself on a new screen with a traditional pyramid temple with a wall of gold tiles. You’ll now have a chance to cash in with a picking game, where you turn the tiles to discover your fate.
Choose between the treasures of the gods and hopefully you’ll reveal free spins or multipliers hidden among the gold. Once you’ve gathered your combination of spins and multipliers, the free spins game is triggered and your goodies are applied.
Remember, there’s an Extra Wild that’s up for grabs in this bonus mode. When this seriously feathery dude lands in your winning combo he thoughtfully doubles the value of your win. Praise be!
The Inca Treasure slot is a low variance game with a treasure hunting adventure that should set you up nicely for the free spins game. I would have loved another bonus given the quality of the suped-up Inca Treasure Bonus, but there’s plenty of gold in those mountains.
Wombat Score 4 out of 5
This spicy dose of South American intrigue and reward was just the ration of money and sun that this wombat needed.
