Features of Pearls of India
Pearls of India has several exciting features including a Wild, a Scatter, Bonus icon, Cascading symbols round, Temple Bonus feature, Free Spins and a Gamble round.
Rich Wild represents the Wild icon in the game. The figure can replace for any symbol except the bonus and the scatter symbol. All wins are multiplied by the bet staked per line. If there is more than one win per selected line, only the highest will be paid.
The Scatter symbol is a pearl, and if players land three or more of them anywhere on the reels, they will trigger the Free Spins round. Once a player has triggered the round, they will get ten free spins at the current multiplier level that is set on the right-hand side from the reels.
During this round, players will get a pearl whenever one lands on the reels. Once five pearls have been collected, players will receive five additional free spins. The maximum number of turns a player can receive is thirty spins. Plus, this pearl can act as an extra wild during this round.
Cascading icons occur each time a player lands a winning combination. When this happens, all the icons involved will disappear, and more symbols will land into their places. Successive wins increase multipliers, that can go up to x10.
Whenever players land a Temple Bonus anywhere on the reels, it will help replenish the meter on the left-hand side from the reels. Once the meter hits twenty-five, they will acquire one of the three mini-games of their choice, from either Statue of Vishnu, Wheel of Brahma or Wall of Shiva.
In Statue of Vishnu, players will get to choose pearls from the hands of Vishnu for prizes until they run into an empty one. Wheel of Brahma asks players to spin rings on a wheel to earn a win according to the pay-table. Wall of Shiva is a mini-game where players will pick tiles on a wall, the more successful the picks become, the higher a prize will be.
The gamble round can be triggered each time a player lands a winning combination by clicking on the "Gamble" button. Here a payer can double or quadruple their winnings. Guessing the colour will double the winnings, guessing the suit as well quadruples them. Guessing incorrectly though will forfeit all the prize money.
Despite the epic nature of the Pearls of India adventure, slot players of all gameplay levels can enjoy the gameplay thanks to its wide variety of bonus features that keep the cash pot growing at an excellent level.
