The Hidden Valley slots game can be found at casinos offering Quickspin software. Quickspin are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation. As a standard Quickspin do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge of Hidden Valley is 3.50%.
Within the Hidden Valley lie the treasures of old.
Hidden Valley is a 5 reel game with 40 paylines and you can only bet 1 coin on each payline. The reel layout is non-standard with reels 1 and 5 being 3 symbols tall and reels 2, 3 and 4 being 4 symbols tall.
The ‘Wild’ symbol is Wild. There are 4 different betting levels and these levels control the multiplier that the Wild symbol applies to any win it contributes to. The bottom level applies a multiplier of 1-2. The second level applies a multiplier of 2-4. The third level applies a multiplier of 3-6. The fourth level applies a multiplier of 4-10.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Hidden Valley and it is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Bonus’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing a prize wheel. The inner wheel will spin to determine the number of complimentary spins you will receive and the outer wheel decides which of the character symbols will serve as an additional Wild symbol during the complimentary spins.
Hidden Valley doesn’t offer the greatest variety of bonus features we’ve ever seen, but the bonus feature it does offer is interesting and unusual. The graphical interface is clean and pleasant and the House Edge is on the attractive end of the spectrum. All in all a decent game.
