Unleash your inner Indy and join the quest for magical crystals in Vicky Ventura, an entertaining five reel with 243 ways to win slot game from Red Tiger Gaming.
Landing crystals activate the totem that can deliver more wilds, modify symbols and open up locked icon positions to provide even more ways to win. Plus, there is also a bonus round that grants free games with additional rows.
The visuals here are wonderful, being set in a ruined jungle palace complete with mysterious palaces, where the heroine Vicky must raid lost tombs to bring back treasure. On the reels, players will see lower-value symbols including a diamond, heart, spade and club alongside books, hats, scrolls and binoculars. The top standard icon is the compass that pays two, five or fifteen times a players stake if they land three, four or five on neighbouring reels. Vicky, as you may imagine, is the game’s wild icon.
Central to the gameplay action here is the crystal icon. Whenever crystal symbols land, they activate the totem that flanks either the side of the reels – known as triggering the game’s special feature. During this particular feature, fires light onto the reels and provide a top selection of bonus extras. Above the reels at the top of the screen players will observe several locked icon positions.
The totem unlocks these positions and fills them out with a wild symbol, thus increasing the possible number of ways a player can win. On the middle reels, the totem can modify positions, so they all transform into the same matching icon. Whilst this occurs, even more totem crystals can fall too that brings more wilds and changing icons into the gameplay.
Landing three of the Free Spins icons on the same turn, and players can look forward to receiving ten free spins in the Free Spins round. Free Spins are played out on an expanded reel set; instead of two rows of locked positions, players will notice four. The crystals are vital to the action here once again, locking frozen places and filling them with more wilds. These wilds remain in place for the remainder of the round and increase the number of ways players can win.
Landing the three Free Spins icons will add an additional ten free spins to a players spin tally, plus, adding another row of locked positions that are ultimately unlocked with crystals. Should these positions be fully expanded, players could be spinning on a machine that offers a whopping 16,807 winning opportunities, with unlimited free spins available too!
The Vicky Ventura slot game is crammed with mystery and adventure. If players can handle the swings in volatility, then they will notice precious treasures will be unearthed.
