The wombat says: Time to get subterranean wombat fans with the Treasure Heroes slot from Rabcat & Microgaming. According to the blurb: ‘there’s a treasure chamber far beyond human imagination embedded in the middle of an endless dungeon maze’.
Now, I don’t know about you lot, but as the master digger of the animal kingdom, this sounds like just the thing for me to sink my marsupial teeth into.
Are you a treasure hero? Let’s find out…
Your reels in Treasure Heroes slot are a 5×5 set Wombat fans, but wins come from clusters rather than lines – and you need at least 6x matching symbols touching each other from left to right to make a winning combo. That´s almost as many combos up for grab as the Who Wants to be a Millionaire Megaways slot, my friends.
Your symbols on the reels are an icy blue gem, a dragon charm, a golden lantern and some Warrior bloke. There are two premium symbols which are a magician and an overflowing treasure chest that will both pay out 1,000x your bet if you fill the grid with 25 of them!
The purple Wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols on the reels to help you make extra winning combos, meanwhile the scatter icon is the golden Key. It all feels like the level of combinations you might find on games like ELK Studio´s Cygnus and Raging Rhino. Supercharged, in other words!
Look and Feel
Your reels are set in a medieval-looking castle flanked by old wooden doors and flickering candles and made if stone. You’ll also see wombat fans that we’re giving a bird’s eye view of the game play which is a feature this wombat hasn’t seen before. It makes a change from more traditional games like the Reel Empire slot (that´s a Roman themed game in case you haven´t played it).
There’s also a skeletal bloke at the right of the reels who pulls a lever on every spin to create your sticky wilds! We love this touch and it made us chuckle!
Free Spins and Bonus Features
After every winning cluster is formed, the winning amount is paid out and all of a sudden reels 1, 3, and 5 move vertically, with new symbols dropping in to fill in any gaps. But that’s not all! Because at the exact same time, rows 1, 3, and 5 will move horizontally, too! This feature keeps on going until no more cluster wins are formed.
Basically it’s like a very cool moving jigsaw puzzle! Well done to Rabcat, this is a great take on the avalanche/cascading reels mechanic.
Treasure Chamber Free Spins
Land 2x of the Scatter keys and the keys will combine to unlock the wooden door on the right, and you’ll be awarded 10 Free Spins. Things get serious once the door to the treasure chamber opens…
Next you’ll find yourself in a creepy vault. Here, every time a Free Spin ends a skeleton above the reels pulls that magic lever to add high paying the magician lady or chunky warrior symbols into play – that can randomly turn into sticky wilds that are held in place for the duration of your spins – get a screen full of Wilds and you could be cashing in some serious wins!
Sadly, the Moving Walls are not active during the free spins. Boo.
Treasure Heroes has 2 imaginative game features that this wombat has never seen before – and we are very impressed with the design, too. That said, triggering the bonus is tricky, but if you do unlock that Chamber of Treasures and you’ll be quids in. Give it a try.
