Based on a story of a mythical Himalayan utopia, Hidden Valley is a 3-4-4-4-3 video slot developed by Quickspin. The inspiration is drawn from the legend of Shangri – La, a heavenly place on earth inhabited by almost immortal beings. In Quickspin's adaptation, two travellers find the entrance to the valley, guided by their Sherpa.
The symbols are divided into three categories – high, medium and lower value. Wilds and Bonus symbols fall under the first category. They are closely followed by the symbols representing the travellers, their Sherpa, The Eagle and The Oxen. The set of icons having the lowest value are A, K, Q, J and number 10.
Play Hidden Valley
Once you unlocked the Free Spins bonus, extra Wild symbols will be introduced. Furthermore, other symbols can also turn into Wilds in the bonus round. With the Multiplier Wild, each spin has a random multiplying value. The range of the multipliers will be determined by the multiplier bet panel. Winning lines with the Multiplier Wild will be increased in accordance with the selected value on the panel.
How to Play
Hidden valley has 40 fixed bet lines and the total bet can range from $0.60 to $60.00. Accordingly, the multiplier bet ranges from $0.40 for x1-x2 multiplying value to the maximum of $1.20 for x4-x10 multiplying value. If you go for the maximum stake, multiplier bets will start at $40 with the limit of $120.00.
Extra Wild Symbols appear in Free Spins mode. They can replace all other icons, except for the Multiplier Wild and Bonus Scatter.
Bonus Scatter symbols will be the ones to unlock the additional spins. For the bonus round to be triggered, the player will need to land the combination of at least three Scatters.
Strategy and Tips
The number of Free Spins and Extra Wild will depend on the Bonus Wheel at the Hidden Valley entrance. When the Scatters trigger the extra round, spinning of the wheel can unlock up to 12 additional spins. The wheel will also determine which of the symbols will act as Extra Wild.
For higher Wild multipliers to be awarded, the player will need to submit higher stakes on the Wild Multiplier bet panel. The highest value of the multiplier Wild is 300 coins for the combination of 5. The wins can be multiplied within four different ranges - x4-x10, x3-x6, x2-x4 and x1-x2.
Each of the medium value symbols can transform into an Extra Wild. This can only happen once the player manages to unlock the bonus rounds.
Hidden Valley slot is designed primarily as a desktop slot. If, however, you are a mobile device user, you will be able to play the game on your phone or tablet.
