Secret of the Stones is a slot with a 5x3 playing field and 25 flexible paylines, offering a single free spins feature, with a myriad of little modifiers that make it different each time you are lucky enough to see it activated. So come and learn the ancient teachings these old druids left behind!
While most people nowadays associate the word druid with fantasy novels or a video game class, they were a rather prominent feature in the Celtic regions of Europe, before the Romans brought over Christianity which spelled out their doom. But worry not, because druids aren’t something you will only find in the latest flick of Asterix and Obelix, but instead, you can also find them in this NetEnt release.
The user interface is something that most NetEnt fans will find quite familiar. It uses their older version, which isn’t as sleek as the modern one is, but everything is cleanly labelled and easy to access. In fact, there’s even one thing that you don’t see in NetEnt titles nowadays, and that’s a big button that allows you to preview the feature and see what it looks like. This is something that we have no doubt would get players excited for the real thing, and it could be something the developers might want to consider bringing back.
The lower paying bracket of icons include 10, J, Q, K and A, which look carved out of stone, with intricate rune patterns all over them. We’re not usually fans of including poker card symbols, but there’s some charm to this design. The rest are stone carvings of animals onto coins – the snake, the wolf, the bull, the owl and the deer, all with a distinct shape and colour fitting of their status as objects of reverence for the druids of old.
Collecting three or more Scatters will reward ten free spins, and a pass through the stone field the druids take good care of. There are twenty stones, and the amount you can pick through depends on how many Scatters activated the feature. Among the prizes you can find are extra Wild symbols which will make all owl and deer icons into Wilds, Wild Reels that will fill the second or fourth reel with Wilds, a multiplier increase from x1 to x2, and extra free spins, up to a maximum of 10 more.
Despite having just one feature on offer, NetEnt’s release takes it and runs, achieving a great deal with that one bonus where a lot of titles have several that don’t seem to go anywhere. Every time you hit the bonus, odds are, it’s going to turn out a little bit differently, and a good combination that put you in a serious surplus, although it naturally requires a good amount of luck to get to that point.
Secret of the Stones offers a medium volatility to gamblers with an RTP of 96.7%. For the year it was launched in, the visuals are well done, the inclusion of a feature preview was quite a nice addition, and the winning potential certainly tickled our fancy.
