Victorian travellers searched in vain for the mythical land of Shangri-La and this search is the theme of Hidden Valley, an online slot from Quickspin based on that lofty Himalayan landscape. Our travellers are aided on their quest by variable multipliers in the base game and an enhanced free spins bonus game.
Hidden Valley is a five reel slot with three/four rows and forty fixed paylines; there’s a mountainous backdrop to the reels and a path winding up through the snow and sturdy vegetation. As you can see from the screenshot above, reels one and five have three rows while those in between have four rows.
The high value symbols are our male and female travellers along with their sherpa, a bird we can’t identify and a buffalo; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The big green wild symbols are stacked on the reels for extra multiplier potential and the scatter icon is the ‘Bonus’ circle which activates the main feature.
This is a nice feature and it allows the player to select the potential multiplier applied to a win by choosing a particular bet level. The bet levels are displayed to the right of the reels and these are changed by clicking on the one you want.
Any win which includes a multiplier will find that win multiplied by the amount specified by the stake level (and in the meter above the reels). The meter is random and can pick any of the values on any spin.
This is triggered by landing three of the Bonus symbols on the centre three reels; you will now get to spin the wheel set into the valley gate. The outer ring determines whether you receive an extra wild and the inner reels reel sets the number of spins.
If you are awarded an extra wild one of the three characters will become that wild; landing two or more bonus symbols during this round will award more free spins or extra wilds.
Hidden Valley Online Slot Playing Tips
The likelihood of winning won’t change whichever multiplier you choose but it’s probably more exciting to opt for the higher values if you can afford it.
Hidden Valley is a typically high quality Quickspin game with an engaging theme and some interesting bonus features. It’s well worth checking out and comes complete with an RTP of 96.50%
