Microgaming's Adventure Palace Video Slot Review

November 22, 2013

 

Microgaming has produced some of the all-time greatest video slots. With the Adventure Palace game, they have combined themes from two different arenas. On one hand, you have the themes and gameplay ideas that have driven some of their most popular titles ever like Thunderstruck. On the other hand, you have the gameplay features and overall feel of Australian pokies. When you combine these two sets of concepts, you get a game that's very solid all the way around and that offers the features that Australian playes tend to go for. Check out what awaits you with Adventure Palace.

Adventure Palace is a video slot set up with five reels that have three symbols showing on each reel. There are nine different paylines on this game, and while that might not be a lot compared to some video slots, it's more than plenty from the context of this game's feature set and overall gameplay. Coin sizes start at the super-low $0.01 each and go up to $1.00 each. You can bet up to five coins on each of the nine paylines, so you have a betting range of $0.09 to $45 per spin. This covers everyone from the high rollers all the way down to the penny players.

The wild symbol in Adventure Palace is the elephant, and that seems to make sense in the context of the safari theme. Five on an activated payline gets you the top 10,000x jackpot in this game, so they provide a lot of value on top of giving you chances to get extra winning combinations. On top of that, they are also a wild multiplier giving you twice the size of your normal wins. This combination makes the wild elephants extremely important in this game.

The jungle symbol is a scatter in this game. On one hand, you get value from these symbols with standard scatter payouts. On the other hand, you also get value from the free spins bonus feature that three or more of these scatters will trigger. You'll get 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier added to all of your wins, and this compounds with the 2x multiplier from the wilds to make 6x overall multpliers possible. Talk about value! Overall, Adventure Palace is a game that is best for people who care more about solid gameplay and prizes than a flashy theme from television or film.
