You will no doubt have seen plenty of Ancient Egyptian themed slots in your time playing on the net. Hidden is the latest one to join the genre. However, this is not your run-of-the-mill, Cleo and Tut-themed game. Hidden is the tale of one Professor Taylor and his nephew, Benjamin, who travel to Egypt on a mission of discovery. Goofy but great symbols galore are present in this game, which features a solid 178 paylines over its 5 reels. Expect to find bets ranging from 20p up to £100 a spin with the Betting Strategies setup in this ELK Studios developed slot, whilst top-prizes are capped at a non-progressive total of 215,000 coins.
Wild symbols appear as golden emblems, and these symbols are naturally able to replace all other symbols save for scatters.
At any point in the game, a Flashback Re-spins bonus may be randomly triggered. When it is, either the second, third and/or fourth reel will be covered with sticky wilds, remaining for a total of 3 free re-spins.
There is also a bonus round in Hidden, which is triggered by landing 3 or more magnifying glass scatter icons on the reels.
Hidden’s free spins bonus round begins by selecting one random symbol as an expanding icon. Every time this symbol appears on the reels, it will expand clockwise, to form a 2×2 colossal symbol. On top of that, every extra scatter you locate adds 1 more free spins to your tally, which start at 5 free games. Following a win, all non-expanding icons will blow up, being replaced by new ones. In this manner, it is possible for players to bag multiple wins on a single free spin.
As usual, ELK Studios have included a few betting strategies to help you get the most out of your wagers. This also alters the betting levels depending on your success. Hidden is a quintessential ELK Studios slot and offers a bit of light-hearted adventure to a tired Ancient Egyptian slot genre. Desert Treasure was the last slot to really do this.
