Hidden Valley Pokie Review
When James Hilton published Lost Horizon, not even he would have been able to guess how big an impact the mythical valley of Shangri-La would have on the world. Now, with Quickspin’s Hidden Valley, Australian players get the chance to live through an adventure filled with excitement and riches in a quest to find this fabled place.
Gameplay and Features
Hidden Valley is a five-reel slot game with a total of four rows and 40 paylines. The Quickspin title features good illustrations and a sound scheme that elicits a mood of adventure and discovery. Players will absolutely fall in love with the inviting colour scheme during a short or extended game session.
The title’s symbols are made up of a combination of theme-related and playing card (A, K, Q, J, 10) symbols. Unsurprisingly, theme-related symbols create high-value combinations. Designs include a female and male character, a bird, a Sherpa and a yak. There are multiple wild symbols all of relatively similar design (green background and golden corners) with the expectation of the multiplier included on them. The game also makes use of a scatter symbol in the form of a circular symbol that looks like a shield and reads the word “bonus”.
Hidden Valley pokie has two interesting bonus features: Multiplier Wilds and Free Spins. The Multiplier Wilds feature is not seen in all that many pokie games. Players can select a multiplier to add to a potential win before placing a bet. For bigger multipliers, Aussies need to be using higher bet levels.
As is generally the case, players win free spins by landing three scatter symbols on the reels. The number of free spins and extra wilds a player receives is determined by the position of the symbols. If players are lucky enough to get an extra wild, one of the character symbols will be made a wild. They can also add more free spins to their tally by landing more bonus symbols.
Hidden Valley Final Verdict
Hidden Valley has got all the making of an instant classic – very much like the novel that it is based on. Quickspin really put a lot of effort into making this game an enjoyable experience and this effort shines through. We really recommend that all our Aussie players give it a go the next time they’re online.
