A fantastical woodland is the setting for Forest Treasure, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. Magical treats hidden amongst the foliage include up to 80 free spins as well as a multi-stage pick me round that can rustle up prizes of over 22,000 coins. Play from between 25p and £125 per spin.
The cartoon visuals in Forest Treasure are nicely done – set against a flower-filled backdrop, the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols which are adorned with flowers, mushrooms, ladybirds and the like.
More valuable is the collection of magical characters – in ascending order of value, look out for a fairy, sorcerer, elf, leprechaun and unicorn. You only need to land 2 of the character symbols to create a winner. 5 unicorns is the top paying combination, awarding 2,500 coins. There’s also a standard wild that morphs into all other symbols apart from the bonus and scatter. As usual from Pragmatic Play, Forest Treasure comes with a pair of bonus features.
Free Spins feature – the gemstone encrusted Forest God Idol symbol is the key to unlocking this feature. Landing 3,4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels will get you 10, 20 or 40 free spins. You can re-trigger more free spins or the other bonus feature from here.
Enchanted Quest Bonus feature – to trigger this, you’ll need to land 3 of the Green Man symbol on an active payline. It’s a multi-stage pick me round. First choose 1 of the pixie’s 5 flowers to reveal a cash prize. You’ll then progress to the Leprechaun. Pick again. This time a game over is added to the picks.
If you land a cash prize, you’ll get to pick a potion from the sorcerer. Another game over is added here. Succeed and you’ll pick a mushroom from the fairy. Finally, there’s the shrub from the unicorn. There are 4 game overs and just a single win on offer here. Prizes depend on how many bonus symbols triggered the feature:
- 3 green men and you’ll win between 5 and 2,240 coins
- 4 green men and you’ll win between 25 and 11,200 coins
- 5 green men and you’ll win between 50 and 22,400 coins
Forest Treasure is a typical Pragmatic Play slot. The design is above average but not quite up to the standards of Thunderkick or Yggdrasil Gaming. It’s perfectly fine though, backed by a magical soundtrack. The 2 features are steady enough and land at regular intervals. We found the variance here to be slightly higher than some Pragmatic slots. It’s in the medium range. Well-designed and with a couple of classy extras, Forest Treasure offers entertainment and some very decent winning potential.
