Secrets of the Amazon is an online video pokie designed and developed by the team at Playtech. It offers players the chance to explore the Amazon rainforest and potentially discover life-changing treasures. Typically a game set in the Amazon would normally focus on ancient civilisations; however, this particular online pokie has decided to rather focus on the animals you might encounter while on your adventure.
Secrets of the Amazon Graphics and Theme
Secrets of the Amazon uses a nature-theme, one which Playtech created rather well. The game uses a high-quality jungle background behind the reels and we adored the little details, like the reels being made out of branches and vines.
The symbols for Secrets of the Amazon have been expertly created by the developer. The game doesn’t rely on any playing card symbols, instead uses only theme-relevant symbols. These include numerous Amazon animals including a frog, snake, panther, parrot, leopard, cougar and chameleon.
Secrets of the Amazon Features
Secrets of the Amazon features five reels and twenty fixed-paylines, which isn’t all that much today. As you’d expect, there are Wilds and Scatter to help the player to win big. The Wild is represented by a beautiful Amazon woman and, as is the case with most Wilds, she can stand in for any other symbol to create a winning combination. The only exception is the Scatter, but on the bright side, all winnings that the player achieves using the Wild, will be subjected to a 2x multiplier. If you somehow manage to land five Wilds on an active payline, you’ll win 50 000x your original line bet.
The Scatter is the Moonflower symbol and players will use this to activate the Free Spins bonus mode. Three or more will activate the mode and once this happens, players will be presented with a choice of three Moonflowers. They will need to choose one, which will determine how many free spins they get. The amount of Scatters that triggered the bonus game will determine the range of free spins available.
- Three Moonflowers: 5 – 15 free spins
- Four Moonflowers: 8-18 free spins
- Five Moonflowers: 10 – 20 free spins
During the free spin mode, the player will begin with a 1x multiplier, but this increases by one after every spin. There is also the chance to win more free spins by landing another three or more Moonflowers. In fact, up to 50 free spins can be won, meaning you could potentially have a 50x multiplier.
Secrets of the Amazon Conclusion
After trying out Secrets of the Amazon for quite some time, we came to the conclusion that this is a very good-looking product from Playtech that is also a lot of fun to play. The free spin mode has the potential to generate some pretty serious cash, making it all the more exciting.
