Secret City Gold, a slot with five reels and twenty-five paylines, is a game that unfolds deep in the Aztec jungle. Everyone knows that when you travel to dense and ancient lands like this, there’s the possibility of uncovering some undiscovered treasure, often in the form of gold, which is the foundation for the theme of this Pragmatic Play release.
Players can spin the reels of this title from 0.25, with a max stake of 125.00 possible, which works out well when the gold on the line is worth up to 10,000x the bet. It's a fair top prize and reason alone to book a flight to El Dorado, the Lost City of Gold.
As always, Pragmatic Play design Secret City Gold in a way that oozes authenticity and ticks the graphics box with aplomb while also delivering on the feature front, of which there are several to get stuck into in this slot alone. And it’s a game compatible with a range of devices too, which is a must.
The design of Secret City Gold, and more specifically, the artwork, is as you’d expect in this slot and from Pragmatic Play. The backdrop supports the theme and the idea of a dense jungle and hidden temple, while the symbols on the reels further that premise. Overall, as we said, it’s as you’d expect for this style of game and good on the whole.
The symbols, again, as you’d expect, include royals 10-A, and they can pay up to 1x the stake for a combination of five across a win line. Different statues – frog, jaguar, snake and lion – are next up, paying up to 3.2x the bet, while the top payer is the gold coin at 4x. The Jade Cicada Mask is the wild, replacing other regular symbols and paying up to 8x for a line of five.
As the reels turn in the base game, players will notice symbols inside random shapes will appear, which are selected at random. Wins they’re involved in will see a random multiplier worth up to 10x apply, and the same can happen during the free spins feature too. This is known as Shape Wins.
Gold Monkeys are the scatter in Secret City Gold, which makes sense, and players must see three or more in view simultaneously to get their hands on up to eight free spins with a payout of up to 50x the bet, depending on how many scatters were present in triggering.
The free spins feature is the bonus round that everyone will want to play, and in some cases, players who don’t want to keep spinning the reels until they land the scatters won’t have to. Instead, they can pay 85x the stake to go straight to it.
Pragmatic Play’s Secret City Gold slot game delivers everything you’d expect it to – an authentic theme and design, fair top prize and a free spins feature. And then they include Shape Wins in both the base game and free spins feature, which just takes things up a couple of notches where excitement and winning potential are concerned.
