Raiders of the Hidden Realm Review
|Max Win:||500x line bet|
|Our Rating:||4.5 / 5|
- Great artwork. The designers have really captured the feel of a true fantasy adventure with Raiders of the Hidden Realm’s original characters and gameboard design.
- Hugely diverse bonus features. This keeps the action fresh on multiple visits.
- Decent upper betting limit. It might not be the highest ever, but most folks will find the thought of £500 per spin daunting anyway!
- Great introduction video to set the scene.
- It’s hard to find much to dislike about this machine. It does, however, lack a serious “wow” factor, hence the less-than-perfect score!
The top jackpots on the Raiders of the Hidden Realm slot machine are each awarded for matching five-of-a-kind of the character symbols, or their magic powers, along one of the 40 fixed win lines. Below, you’ll find the payments for each of these top winning combinations:
- “Wild” Game Logo = 500x the line bet.
- Morgana = 500x the line bet.
- Strider or Sparks = 250x the line bet.
- Pink Orb = 150x the line bet.
- Blue Crystals = 75x the line bet.
- Woodland Orb = 50x the line bet.
Stacked Raider Symbols
The highest jackpot symbols appear stacked on the reels. This can make for some really juicy wins!
The Raiders Shuffle feature is triggered when a character symbol appears fully stacked on reel one at the same time as being partially stacked on reel five. This will cause all character symbols on the first and last reels to transform into individual “wild” symbols and shuffle across the reels to new, random positions. This makes additional winning combinations possible.
Morgana’s Free Games
If the pink Morgana character symbol appears fully stacked on both reels one and five simultaneously, players will receive eight free spins. On each of these, additional Morgana symbols will be added to the reels for an increased chance of hitting high-paying winning combinations.
Strider’s Free Games
The Strider Free Games mode is triggered when the blue Strider character symbol appears fully stacked on both reels one and five simultaneously.
This mode awards players with seven free games, during which any “wild” symbols appearing on the reels will freeze in place for the duration of the feature.
Spark’s Free Games
Landing the green Sparks symbol stacked over both reels one and five simultaneously will trigger the Sparks free games mode.
During this feature, players will receive six free games. Each of the Sparks symbols triggering the bonus will break into individual “wild” symbols and come complete with a random multiplier.
This can make for some mammoth winning combinations!
In addition to the all-powerful character and spell symbols, there are also a few that don’t award quite such large prizes. These are represented simply by different coloured shapes.
As usual, we’ve listed the prizes for each five-of-a-kind winning combination of these lesser symbols below:
- Pentagon or Diamond = 30x the line bet.
- Triangle or Square = 20x the line bet.
Since the number of betting lines is fixed at 40 on Raiders of the Hidden Realm, players are only given the opportunity to adjust the total bet amount. Here, the minimum is just 40p – equating to a line bet of 1p. Meanwhile, the maximum possible bet per spin is an impressive £500. For the purposes of working out winnings from symbol combinations, this is the same as betting £25 on each of the win lines.
Whilst this upper betting limit certainly isn’t the largest we’ve ever seen, it is highly competitive. We think these betting limits will satisfy players of all sized bankrolls.
All told, the Raiders of the Hidden Realm slot machine by Playtech is a great title from one of the industry’s most respected developers. It makes use of innovative bonus features and plenty of them to deliver a quality gameplay experience that feels fresh, even on multiple visits.
For lovers of classic fantasy tales, the theme is ideal too. There are various enchanted characters that each have a unique effect on the way the game is played. Playtech even included a great introduction movie to really set the scene!
