Hidden Valley bonus features
Against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, Hidden Valley lays out a 3-4-4-4-3 reel set. We can see native animals like yaks and eagles as well as three different travellers on the reels as the higher value symbols.
Alongside the reel area, the game screen also displays two other features, one on either side. The first, on the left, is Wild multiplier meter. On the right is a range of options under the phrase Multiplier Wild Bet. Read on to find out more about these features.
The Wilds in Hidden Valley are not just Wilds. While they can substitute for any other symbol, as normal Wilds do, these are Multiplier Wilds. They can appear on any reel and offer a multiplier factor. The player gets to decide on the range of multipliers possible depending on the size of the bet.
For example, a bet of 40p means that multipliers can be between x1 and x2. At the other end of the scale, betting £1.20 per spin means the multipliers that appear will be between x4 and x10 in value.
Players can select the size of their bet and by extension, the size of the multiplier, from the options on the right of the game screen. The box on the left of the screen displays the possible multipliers that can appear for the selected bet level.
Hidden Valley Free Spins
The free spins feature on Hidden Valley is triggered when 3 or more Bonus symbols appear. These are shaped like shields and once the feature is activated, the player will be presented with a bonus wheel.
The player will spin the outer wheel to determine which symbol will become an extra Wild. The male and female travellers and the Sherpa are possible options here. There is also an inner wheel, which will decide how many free spins – between 7 and 12 – the player is awarded.
During the free rounds, landing 2 or more Bonus symbols will award the player extra bonus rounds and additional Wilds. Depending on the outcome of the bonus wheel, it is possible to turn all the character symbols into Wilds.
The multiplier feature from the base game is also available during the free rounds, which can mean a significant boost in winnings for lucky players.
