Graphics and Visuals
As always on slots from Red Tiger Gaming, you can expect bold HD graphics and elaborate animations. The game window is placed in front of the cave entrance flanked by two smoking pots and greenery. On the right is the mystic totem that will be energized when a crystal lands on the reels to apply reel modifiers to the current spin. Typical explorer items populate the reels while a suspenseful soundtrack is interrupted by earth-shattering thumps when scatters or crystals are hit.
The detailed execution of the theme continues with the pay symbols. They start at the low end with the four card suits carved in stone. They continue with a sealed scroll and a quiver, Vicky’s diary, an explorer hat, a set of binoculars and a golden compass. All symbols can appear as a single or semi-stacked symbol. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 1.5x to 15x the stake. Vicky Ventura herself is the wild symbol, substituting for all symbols except scatters and totem crystals. Scatters are an intricate tile with the words ‘free spins’ across it. A blue crystal with a skull is the symbol that will trigger the mystic totem.
The Mystic Totem Mechanic Explained
The slot has on top of the game window one locked row in the base game and an additional two rows in the standard free spins. Retriggering the free spins will add a fourth locked row until the end of the bonus round. Any unlocked tile will increase the number of ways and thus provide more potential to score a win.
A totem crystal landing on any spin in the base game and free spins will beam energy to the totem pole on the right of the game window from where it is deflected back into randomly chosen locked and unlocked symbols or symbols on the game window to apply reel modifiers:
- Locked Tile: will reveal a Vicky Ventura Wild symbols when a locked tile is unveiled the first time
- Unlocked Tile/Standard Symbols: all will reveal a common symbol or additional totem crystals
Each totem crystal will activate the mystic totem consecutively. Any unlocked tiles will be relocked before the next spin or at the end of the free spins round. Wins are evaluated after all modifiers have been applied and paid in a single amount.
The Vicky Ventura Free Spins Feature
Three or more scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger 10 free spins, which can be re-triggered indefinitely. The game window extends by adding two more locked rows on top on the existing one. Any unlocked tiles will stay unlocked for the remainder of the round but the wild symbol will not be sticky, instead, it will spin together with all reels and will contain the standard pay symbols and the totem crystal. Each unlocked tile will increase the number of ways to win, up to 7,776 ways. All unlocked tiles will be relocked at the end of the round.
But that’s not all as there is a special kicker waiting for players who hit a retrigger during the free spins. A fourth row of locked tiles will be added at the top while the game awards 10 extra free spins. Any further retriggers will award 10 extra free spins only. Unlocking all four rows of tiles in the bonus round will increase the total ways to win to 16,807. The best moment to hit some monster wins on this slot.
