Raiders of the Hidden Realm is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Playtech that can be played on all devices from 40p to £500 per spin. You are taken to a fantasy ice world with 3 heroic raiders in this superb, epic feel game that comes with a Raiders Shuffle feature as well as 3 free spins features based on each of the characters.
Visually, Raiders of the Hidden Realm is probably the best-looking slot I’ve come across in a long time – it looks like a feature film! Set in a fantasy ice world, you join heroic raiders Morgana, Strider and Sparks which feature on the reels. There are 4 gem symbols as well as 3 orbs-like symbols.
All raider symbols can appear stacked and can appear in 4 sizes (1, 2, 3 or 4 symbols high). The Morgana symbol the most valuable as 5 on a payline will give you 12.5 times your stake – the RR letters wild symbol substitutes for all symbols and offers the same payouts as Morgana.
Raiders of the Hidden Realm comes with a Raiders Shuffle feature which is played when a fully stacked character (either Morgana, Strider or Sparks) appears on the 1st reel as well as a partially stacked matching symbol appearing on reel 5. The character symbols on both reels then become individual wilds which then shuffle to give you a winning combination – this could lead to 7 wilds on the reels.
You then have 3 free spins features – the Morgana’s Free Games feature is played when the Morgana symbol lands fully stacked on both reels 1 and 5 simultaneously. You will receive 8 free spins – more Morgan symbol are added to the reels on every free spin meaning more chances to win with the highest value symbol in the game.
The Strider’s Free Games feature is accessed with the Strider symbol lands fully stacked on both reels 1 and 5 simultaneously – you will receive 7 free spins. All wilds landing on the reels will freeze in position for the remainder of the feature.
Finally, there’s the Sparks’ Free Games feature which is triggered when the Sparks symbol lands fully stacked on the outer most reels at the same time – your reward is 6 free spins. During the feature, any Sparks symbol landing will transform into a wild symbol with a random multiplier – this can be anything up to 5x!
When a stacked Sparks symbol appears, it breaks down into single wilds – each with their own multiplier. If more than 1 wild contributes to a winning combination, the multipliers are multiplied meaning you could benefit from a 25x multiplier!
Raiders of the Hidden Realm looks amazing and it has the bonus features to match. I particularly like the Strider’s Free Games feature due to the frozen wilds but it’s all about the Sparks’ Free Games feature – despite only being awarded 6 free spins, the potential for multipliers up to 25x is too good to miss. Another epic slot from Playtech which is medium to high variance!
