Secret of the Stones
Drawing on elements of JRR Tolkien and Celtic mythology, Secret of the Stones is a visually striking video slot from NetEnt that includes five reels, 25 paylines and an awesome free spins feature. Triggered whenever three or more tree scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, players will be escorted by a grey-bearded wizard to a clearing containing a number of stones where they’ll be able to uncover up to five bonus items. With extra free spins, prize multipliers, wild reels and additional wild symbols all up for grabs, it really is a great way to amplify the feature and win big.
Secret of the Stones is a game that both looks and sounds mysterious, with a number of animal and plant symbols drawn in the style of Celtic brooches featuring on its reels. Higher value symbols include a deer, an owl, a bull, a wolf and a snake, with the grey-bearded wizard acting as a substitute wild and the tree scatter symbol being used to trigger free spins. The gameboard itself is bordered by ornately carved stones, with players being transported to a new screen that almost resembles a graveyard whenever the free spins feature is triggered. An atmospheric piece of background music plays throughout to heighten the suspense, with cooing birds also adding to the outdoor ambience.
As touched on above, the main bonus feature in Secret of the Stones occurs whenever three tree scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Whenever this happens, players will be transported to a new screen where they’ll have to choose from 20 stones to reveal bonuses. The number of picks they receive will be dictated by the number of scatters used to trigger the feature, with a minimum of three being awarded. Players will initially begin this section of the bonus with 10 free spins and a 1x prize multiplier displayed at the bottom of the screen, but as they select stones they can add to both totals or uncover wild reels and extra wild symbols to further enhance the feature.
Another fully adjustable title from NetEnt, Secret of the Stones features left and right arrows that can be used to control the number of active paylines from 1-25, players’ preferred bet level from 1-10 and their coin value from £0.01-£0.50. When combined, these three elements make the game playable for between £0.01 and £125.00 per spin, while an autoplay button can again be used to launch up to 100 consecutive spins at your chosen bet level.
An interesting and atmospheric NetEnt slot, Secret of the Stones is an incredibly straightforward title to play but boasts plenty of depth thanks to its immersive bonus feature. The game both looks and sounds fantastic, while a regular jackpot of 1,250x your line bet that can be boosted by a maximum prize multiplier of 10x means it certainly packs a rock-hard punch when it comes to payouts.
