Get back to nature in Secret Garden II, a flower-themed slot from Eyecon. This 5 reel, 25 payline game from Eyecon may have a gentle theme but it can deliver some impressive action thanks to the pick rounds and a free spins feature where all payouts are trebled. Play from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.
This is the second Secret Garden slot from Eyecon and the design in the sequel is a step up from the blocky efforts on show in the original. A beautifully designed, flower-filled garden forms the backdrop to the reels.
On those reels, you’ll find sundials and yellow flowers which pay up to 100 coins, ladybirds and dragonflies which award up to 200 coins and wheelbarrows and butterflies which offer up to 300 coins. The garden ornament and keys pay up to 500 coins with the padlock awarding up to 1,000 coins. The top symbol is the Secret Garden II logo – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll receive 10, 100, 500 or 5,000 coins.
The red rose is the wild, substituting for all other symbols apart from the watering can – whenever a winning combination includes a wild, the payout is doubled. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature and with it 15, 20 or 25 free spins. All payouts during the free spins round are boosted by a 3x multiplier and trebled. Re-triggers will add another 15 free spins to your total with up to 400 up for grabs.
The metal watering can is the scatter – land 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels and you’ll activate the Money Tree Pick feature. Select a pot, water the seed and watch it grow – the higher it reaches, the bigger the prize on offer. Each seed can deliver payouts of up to 100 times your total stake. The number of picks is determined by how many watering can scatters triggered the feature.
Though still not the greatest you’ll see, the design in Secret Garden II is an improvement on the original. The visuals are better drawn and the harp-heavy soundtrack matches the theme nicely. The range of features is expanded too thanks to the addition of the picks round. Throw in the multipliers with the free spins round and Secret Garden II becomes a playable slot.
Eyecon may not produce the best-looking slots but their regular combination of pick’em rounds and free spins with multipliers make for a solid combination. It is highly volatile and offers payouts of up to 1,200 times your stake on each spin! If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Flowers is worth trying.
