Secret Symbol Slots

Strap yourselves in as we go back in the past, to the regions of the mighty Aztec empire. With rumored cities of gold and a spanning power that would be brought to an end by colonial overlords, its people were proud and held a unique culture and religion that still tickles the imagination of many to this very day. Secret Symbol embraces that feeling of the exotic to craft a fantastic 5 reel, 25 payline slot in which players will be forced to cut through the jungle and uncover what secrets lie within.

How to Play

This particular March release by RTG tickles the imagination with the story and theme, but on the gameplay side, players will find a very down to earth title. Various colorful symbols litter the reels, the presence of both Wilds and Scatters is noticeable straight away, and you use Scatters to active the bonus feature. That said, the game is fun to play besides a lack of changes to the formula. Wilds can cover entire reels if placed correctly, the free spins bonus is quite interesting to play through, and the possibility of retriggering the special feature is sure to attract attention of a fair few gamblers. But like previous RTG slots, Secret Symbol has a very developed Autoplay function. Win and loss limits, being able to stop spins if you win at all, or if you activate the bonus present in the game. As such, we imagine players will be very happy to know they have this particular option in their slot.

Betting Options and Payout

Between 25 variable paylines, and a coin range that goes from $0.01 to $1, the player may not have as much flexibility as they might want. We can imagine that the maximum bet being $25 might turn off some high rollers from embracing the game, while casual players will find it that much more exciting. But this title is not willing to sit down without a fight, as you can win absolutely massive amounts of money. It has two progressive jackpots, with the major one starting at $1000, and the minor one which starts at $250, both of which increase as the reels keep spinning and you put in more money, hanging just above your head as a potential return of investment if you just keep going for one more spin. Other than those, the special feature of Secret Symbol can be equally lucrative. Other than granting you free spins, it can also increase your multiplier, up to a 20x increase for some mind-bogglingly good wins.

Symbols and Extra Features

RTG avoided the temptation of using gambling icons, and they have our immediate respect for that. The reels look lovely in a shade of gold and green, with a lush jungle serving as a backdrop to your adventure. On the reels, you will find parrots, snakes, necklaces, weapons and a large black panther roaming about, a symbol revered by the Aztec people. Be careful that it does not pounce you, however! Wilds take the shape of the Aztec chief who rules over the lands through which you wander. He can replace any icon except Scatters, which come in the shape of pyramids, and during a free spins bonus, if the chief finds himself on the second or fourth reel, he will expand across the entirety of it for that one spin. Scatters are the key behind unlocking the secret symbols in this slot. Granting you ten bonus games, each spin brings with it a masked icon, which is revealed above the reel before each grid change takes place. It awards a multiplier, which can range from 2x up to 20x increase, and it is applied to all wins in the slot, including jackpots.

Our Verdict

While this particular RTG release kept things tidy in basic gameplay, the special feature really managed to stand out, bringing the winning potential through the roof. There are a lot of good things lying around here, and if you love the Aztec theme like we do, you owe it to yourself to spend a few hours spinning the reels. Who knows, you may just find the golden treasure inside the pyramids.
