There seems to be golden rules about forests when it comes to slot games. They can’t be ordinary ones can they, oh no that’s just not possible. Forests are either enchanted, haunted, mystical or in this case, secret. I’m not sure just what is secret about this forest but what can be told is that by playing this game you can get some big wins thanks to its bonus features.
It must be a secret forest because we don’t get to see anything in the background. Above the reels we do get the ‘Secret Forest’ logo and to the left and right a tree with some leaves, hardly a forest, is it? This is another Novomatic slot that brings back memories of the amusement arcade slot games. Underneath the reels are plenty of control buttons and very useful they are too. As you play the game they will be used to set your stake and how many pay-lines to activate, operate the gamble feature, set the reels spinning and access the paytable.
The Secret Forest video slot has a total of five reels and contains nine pay-lines on its three rows of symbols. There may only be nine but you must decide just how many to activate on each spin of the reels. That’s easily achievable using all those control buttons that are underneath the reels. You can choose to activate either one, three, five, seven or all nine and the minimum cost of activating all of them is 0.09 and the max bet 90. Settle on a stake that won’t cause any problems if It were to be lost. This slot can be played on your PC or tablet and is also mobile-optimised.
Symbols include toadstools, palaces, griffins, unicorns, and gnomes and rather colourful they look too. We also get the Nine to Ace playing card symbols, that supply you with a fair few low-value wins. There are some big wins in the Secret Forest with five palaces paying up to 80,000 coins and 150,000 for the unicorns or griffins.
It’s the Fairy Princess that is the wild symbol in this online slot. She can weave a little bit of magic by substituting for other symbols. If your luck is in then that will create some winning combinations and boost that account balance of yours, especially as the wins that the wild create are doubled so that’s really helpful.
The wild symbol can’t replace the scatter symbol tree spirits If you can get five of the wild symbols on an activated pay-line that can win you the top prize in this game of 900,000 coins. Three of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels wins you 15 free spins and during this bonus round the chances of getting big wins are there for all to see as every winning combination that you get will be tripled.
This slot also contains a gamble feature. What with double wins caused by the wild and triple wins in the free spins round, this game is full of multipliers. That’s because If you take up the gamble feature, you have the chance to at least double the win you get in the base game. All the gambler needs to do is accept the challenge and then correctly guess the colour of the next playing card. One wrong choice sees you lose all your win so try to keep wins safe.
There’s plenty happening here so ensure you know the rules to it before pumping some real cash into it. That’s easily achievable as all you need to do is look through the paytable. That shows you how much the winning combinations payout (with doubled amounts if the wild helps) and how to trigger the free spins round. Then spend some time playing on the free Secret Forest slots game to get some practice and see how everything operates once the reels start spinning.
There are several other real money online slot games out there that have similar gameplay to this video slot. For example, there’s another Novomatic slot entitled ‘Illusionist’ and they have a few secrets of their own, don’t they? That also has nine pay-lines, a gamble feature, and a free spins game to try and trigger. If it’s tripled wins in the free spins round that you are wanting to play (and who wouldn’t?) try the ‘Ghostbusters Triple Slime’ slot which has software by IGT as that sees you getting all wins tripled when the free games are triggered.
The theme isn’t exactly the newest you’ll ever see but it’s well adhered to apart from the terrible music. There are plenty of chances of getting some good wins thanks to the helpful wild symbol. It’s always handy to see the wild doubling wins. Even more welcome is a free spins round that gives you tripled wins. Don’t overdo the gamble feature and you will have a great time playing ‘Secret Forest.’
