Join the quest for the mysterious, Himalayan utopia of Shangri- La in Hidden Valley, a mystical themed slot from Quickspin. This 5 reel, 40 payline title offers plenty of features on your journey to spiritual enlightenment including free spins and multiplier wilds. Start the trek from between 60p and £60 per spin.
The first thing to say about Hidden Valley is that it looks superb. The reels feature symbols of Himalayan backpackers, a local guide as well as animals such as yaks and eagles. The on-screen action is set against a snow-packed mountain backdrop and complemented by a soothing, chilled out soundscape.
The first main feature is the multiplier wild which can appear on each spin offering a random multiplier. You can decide the range of the multiplier depending on the size of the bet. So for example, if you’re betting the minimum 1p per payline for a total of 40p per spin you’ll receive either a 1x or 2x multiplier.
Up the bet to 60p per spin and the wild multipliers will vary from between 2x and 4x. Bet 90p per spin and the wild multipliers will be 3x to 6x. Go all the way to £1.20 per spin and the multipliers shoot up to between 4x and 10x. Choose your level by clicking on 1 of the 4 boxes to the right of the reels. This means the more you stake, the bigger the multiplier on offer.
Hidden Valley also comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered when 3 or more bonus symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Once activated, you’ll have to spin an outer wheel to see whether the male traveller, female traveller or Sherpa will become an extra wild. The inner wheel determines the number of free spins (between 7 and 12 initially).
Find 2 or more Bonus symbols during the feature and extra free spins or extra wilds will be awarded. It’s possible to make three symbols wild during the round offering the potential for some seriously large wins. The expanding multiplier from the base game also applies during the free spins which can also be a big boost depending on what level you’ve chosen.
Hidden Valley offers a nice combination of visuals and features. The bread and butter wins come from the base game wild multipliers. The free spins don’t arrive that often but can be very lucrative when they do, especially if you manage to get all three extra wilds. Combine that with a few free spins and the multiplier and if you’re lucky Hidden Valley could help you on your way to slots Nirvana. If you like Quickspin slots, I’d also recommend Illuminous which is simple but can be highly rewarding!
