Secret of the Stones Slot Review
Secret of the Stones is a 5 reel 25 payline video slot powered by Net Entertainment. This game will take you back to a time when Stonehenge was used by the ancient druids where you can unlock the mysteries of a stone garden. The setting is tranquil as its set in a moss covered misty forest. You will notice the reels are a large stone gate with celtic markings on them. Anyway, you can play from as little as 25p a spin to as much as £125 a spin.
The game is all about the Free Spins feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more Tree Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You will receive 10 free spins and then you come across stones inscribed with Celtic messages. The mist clears and you need to make picks from 20 stones. The number of Tree scatters you get to trigger the feature will determine how many picks you get (i.e. 3 Tree scatters will give you 3 picks and so on).
When you pick the stones, you can unveil extra free spins (2, 3, 4, 5 or 10) which will be added to the initial 10 free spins you receive. You can also get additional multipliers or 1x and 2x added to your initial 1x multiplier. There are also additional wild symbols (Deer and/or Own symbols from the base game become wilds). More importantly, you can get Wild Reel 2 and Wild Reel 4 which makes those reels wild for the duration of the feature.
Net Entertainment slots tend to be quite low variance but Secret of the Stone is actually a medium/high variance game (finally). I’ve played the Free Spins feature a few times now and won £246 from a £1.25 stake (196.8 to 1 win to stake ratio) and £278.50 from a £1.25 stake (222.8 to 1 win to stake ratio). Most of your wins will come in the base game but the big wins will certainly come from the feature. The maximum win in the feature on a payline is a whopping £50,000!
The key to winning big in my opinion is getting the 2 Wild Reels (reels 2 and 4) – couple this with 5 or 10 additional free spins and you could be in for a huge payout. I really like this game and is reminiscent of Piggy Riches with the big wins available in the free spins feature. A welcome addition to NetEnt’s slot offering.
