In Secrets of the Phoenix, the player will find a quality slot coming from a company called Gamesys. This title was released for Virgin Games, an exclusive launch. It’s a 25 payline game, all of them on the same 5 reels. The game has a good looking design in place, with the theme being the idols and culture of some South American civilization but with some mythical stuff thrown in as well. Features like its free spins and cascading reels make it a lot more fun, hence our recommendation that you give it a try if you’re a Virgin Games user.
The game makes it very easy to play it, basically giving the player a single betting option to work with. You will find the Coin Size option on the left side of the screen, at the bottom. The value of these coins starts at $0.01 and it can be increased up to the $4 mark. There is no selection for the number of paylines, the slot using the maximum of 25 lines in each round. The resulting betting range for Secrets of the Phoenix is anywhere between $0.25 and $100. Once you’ve selected the coin size, simply click on the green Spin button, located on the right side of the betting area.
Payouts offered on Secrets of the Phoenix are not that great and in the best case scenario you will find that only about $2,000 can be won. That’s a 500x multiple of the largest line wager/coin value, which automatically means a $100 total wager per spin. There are some redeeming features though, such as the cascading reels or the free spins.
The feature called Cascading Reels is not exactly new, but it’s not used by most slots and it’s always fun to see it in action. Whenever you get a winning combination on the screen, you will notice them go off the screen and new ones taking their place. That can hopefully trigger a new winning combination for the player, which will also cascade off the screen. This feature will keep getting triggered for as long as you have a winning combo appear. If you manage to clear an entire reel or a few sets of reels, a wild phoenix feature will be awarded to you.
At the same time, you will notice that a Free Spins ladder is found on the right side of the screen. Get a minimum of four cascading events in a row, and you will get access to the 7 to 25 free spins that are offered on that ladder. Additional free spins can be won during these rounds, also through the ladder and cascading reels.
The wild phoenix that we’ve mentioned above is offered as a typical wild icon that substitutes and helps the player get more combinations that will pay something.
The scatter icon is the final feature that the game has to offer, with its only advantage being the fact that it offers a payout as a multiple of the total bet and based on the number of symbols alone, not their position. The 20x payout offered here gives the player an amount that is as high as the top jackpot.
Overall, I’m sure you will find Secrets of the Phoenix as fun as I did. The game also has some features that are not found in most slots and they seem to be implemented well. For more information on the game check out the likes of Virgin Casino or Fabulous Bingo.
