Don your explorer gear as you are about to embark on a mysterious Aztec adventure on the slot from 4ThePlayer. 3 Secret Cities features the new BONUS↑UP mechanic that will take you on a highly volatile reel expedition to discover three ancient temples filled with precious treasures worth up to 50,000 times your bet. At your disposal on your quest are wild substitutions, instant cash prizes, a progression map and a Temple Pick Me bonus game to boost your Temple Free Spins round with multipliers and stacked symbols.
Update 22nd April 2021: The game will be released as a 1-week exclusive at LeoVegas Casino and sister sites from the LeoVegas Group. The global release will go ahead as scheduled on 26th May 2021.
3 Secret Cities is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 1,024 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to five matching symbols landing on adjacent reels starting from the left only. You can turn into a reel explorer on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.10 to 20 credits per spin. The game has maximum volatility with an RTP of 96.50%. Using the Buy Feature option (where not restricted) will increase the RTP to 98.00%.
Prepare for a visual feast when you load the game as 4ThePlayer have created a stunningly-looking slot that will take you to different locations, each with its own background and rising win potential. At the start, you will be searching for treasures in Jungle City, before advancing to Lake City and ultimately to Gold City. A tribal soundtrack together with wildlife and reel noises provide the main audio to the gameplay.
The pay symbols start at the low end with carved card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 1x to 2x your bet. They are followed by a golden snake bangle, an Aztec necklace adorned with gems, a black panther, the dashing explorer lady and the graceful Aztec priestess. The latter two appear in 3-symbol height at all times. Hit five across the reels to win 2.5x to 5x your stake. A full screen of priestess symbols would yield a sizzling 5,120 times your bet.
An Aztec amulet marked with the word itself is the wild, substituting for all regular symbols. The three temples in jungle, silver and golden colours appear on reels one, three and five only and act as the scatters based on which location you are in the gameplay.
3 Secret Cities Slot Features
After a swashbuckling sea adventure on 123 Boom!, 4ThePlayer is taking us to Mesoamerica on a quest to find three hidden cities and their temples. At the same time, they are introducing a new mechanic called BONUS↑UP which we will explain shortly. Lets join the dashing explorer lady to see what awaits us on this reel treasure hunt.
At the core of the gameplay is the mentioned BONUS↑UP mechanic, which on this occasion is basically a progression map, taking you to various locations as you play the game. The aim is to reach Gold City as it has the highest win potential. The progression is not bet sensitive since it is not a collectable feature where a portion of the RTP is reserved for the potentially more valuable locations. In fact, the RTP is the same for all features. Any progress will be stored between gaming sessions.
Landing scatters on reel one and three only will trigger a Pick-Me round. Choose one of the two scatters to unveil a cash prize of up to 50x your base bet or a temple that will progress you to the next city. Each leg of the journey has interim stops that will further improve your next Temple Free Spins feature.
- Jungle City: Default and restart location after a Free Spins feature. The part has two stops, starting on the first with up to 12 Free Spins and a win multiplier of up to x4 and increasing to up to 15 Free Spins with up to x5 for the next stop. Maximum win potential peaks at 12,000x and 15,000x your bet respectively.
- Lake City: Second part with three stops – up to 17, 20 and 25 Free Spins and win multipliers of up to x6, x7 and x8. Maximum win potential peaks at 20,000x, 25,000x and 30,000x your bet respectively.
- Gold City: Final part with four stops – up to 30, 35, 40 and 50 Free Spins and win multipliers of up to x9, x10, x12 and x15. Maximum win potential peaks at 35,000x, 40,000x, 45,000x and 50,000x your bet respectively.
Once you reach the last stop on the map, only cash prizes will be available in the Pick-Me round. The progression will not reset until you triggered the Temple Free Spins.
Hitting temple scatters on reels one, three and five will trigger the Temple Free Spins feature based on the location you are currently on your journey. Before the start of the free spins, the game will lead you to a second screen for the Temple Pick where you will get to choose a number of free spins, one pay symbol to appear in superstacks and the win multiplier for the round.
The first three rows do not have an “X” tile and will give you 5 to 15 free spins, one of the royals as the superstacked symbol as well as multipliers between x1 and x5 based on which location you are. Red “X” tiles are added once you progress to row four of the Aztec temple which will instantly end the Pick-Me part of the feature.
The higher you manage to climb on the temple steps, the higher the number of free spins and multipliers as well as the more valuable the stacked symbol will get. The revealed prizes are not cumulative. For example, unveiling on the first row 5 Free Spins and later on 11 Free Spins, will get you the 11 spins only.
Once you complete the Pick-Me part, you will proceed to play your won Temple Free Spins with the unveiled extras. During the feature, scatters appear on reel one and three only, offering you again one pick when they both land on a free spin, awarding 5 or 10 extra spins, no limits. The bonus round ends when you run out of free spins or hit the maximum win cap of 50,000 times your bet.
The location will reset to the Jungle City after every Temple Free Spins feature, allowing you to restart your quest to reach Gold City. Again, any progress will be stored between sessions. There is an increased chance of 50% that the Jungle City Free Spins will trigger within 30 spins after any feature.
For those impatient among us, there is a range of Buy Feature options, although only available in unrestricted countries. It will cost you a single one-time bet of up to 200x your stake to purchase any of the features. Simply click on the golden skull on the side of the game window (desktop) to see what is available. Choose one option and confirm to start the Temple Pick part based on your bought feature.
- 50x bet – Jungle City Feature: Will get you 5 – 15 Free spins and a win multiplier of maximum x5.
- 100x bet – Lake City Feature: Will get you 7 – 25 Free spins and a win multiplier of maximum x8.
- 200x bet – Gold City Feature: Will get you 10 – 50 Free spins and a win multipliers between x3 and x15.
3 Secret Cities is clearly the biggest production to leave the studios of 4ThePlayer. A lot of effort has gone into the visual presentation while probably even more so into the development of the BONUS↑UP mechanic. The game will keep you engaged at all times due to the interim Pick-Me round with just two scatters that will advance you on your reel journey.
The most interesting part of the BONUS↑UP mechanic is the fact that you will either trigger the free spins often and play them at the current location while waiting occasionally longer for a trigger will get you a more potent feature. Naturally, you will want to reach Gold City and then climb all the steps of the temple for the maximum free spins and multiplier. As a result, your reel journey to Mesoamerica could be worth up to 50,000 times your bet.
