Sacred Stones is a Playtech-powered game with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 20p to £2,000 a spin across all devices, this mysterious slot comes with collapsing reels where you can win again and again from each spin as well as stacked wilds and a Free Games feature where you can begin with 50 free spins – there’s an unlimited amount of extra free spins to be won too.
Visually, Sacred Stones has a mysterious feel to it – set against a starry backdrop, it will remind you a little of Stonehenge a little. With a soothing and calming soundtrack, symbols on the reels include 8 different sacred stones – each of them different colour wise with a unique marking on them.
The red stone with an ‘X’ like carving is the highest value giving you 50 times your stake for 5 across a payline. You also have the wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols and only appears on the 3 middle reels – more importantly, it appears stacked to enhance your winning potential. You can also win both left to right and right to left.
The game uses a Collapsing Reels feature – when the reels spin, a wave of symbols appear. If you get a winning combination, those contributing symbols explode and disappear from the reels. The symbols left on the reels fall into the vacated spaces with new symbols coming in. This allows you to win again and again from every spin.
Each consecutive win will see the Stone Pillar located to the side of the reels light up – if you get 5 or more consecutive winning spins (Waves), you will activate the Free Games feature. 5 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 consecutive winning waves will reward you with 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 50 free spins respectively.
During the feature, the Collapsing Reels feature applies meaning you can get plenty of extra spins for winning combinations – if you manage to get 5 or more consecutive wins, you will win more free spins. There’s actually no limit to how many free spins you can play with.
Sacred Stones is quite a simple slot once you get playing – it’s all about the Free Games feature and the stacked wild on the 3 middle reels. Variance wise it’s in the middle with maximum wins of 1,000 times your total stake on each spin/free spin. If you like the Collapsing Reels feature, other Playtech slots like Legacy of the Wild and Green Lantern.
