The Lost Riches of Amazon Slot
The Lost Riches of the Amazon slot is a high variance, 5-reel, 2,048-pay line 'all ways pay' online slot from Foxium released in conjunction with the NYX Gaming Group. We've not heard of Foxium before, and indeed with a bit of research we found that this Estonia-based company has only released two other slots – 'Big Time Journey' and 'The Odd Forest', both of which were warmly received but achieved little in the way of fanfare.
Hopefully this fine slot will win Foxium a little more in the way of kudos. It's a real killer when it comes to pay lines as this slot has four rows as opposed to the usual three, and all ways pay – meaning there are a gigantic 2,048 pay lines available here. Very few slots have more ways to win than that!
As well as the number of pay lines in this game, the graphical elements are truly excellent too – with various animals (toucans, panthers, butterflies, frogs and sloths – the latter a nod to the success of Zootroplis/Zootopia perhaps?) depicted in a semi-realistic style. There's a human quotient too – no doubt these are the people searching for the fabled 'lost riches'.
To keep things simple there is only a one-time fee to pay for every spin of the reels in this game, and all pay lines are covered with this amount. The lowest amount you can pay for a spin is 0.50, and the maximum is 125.00. When you're ready to don your explorer's hat and to start hacking with your machete, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Your fee-per-spin is calculated at fifty coins, so the lowest-paying symbols in this game (three of the frog or butterfly) in effect wins you four coins. The highest award in normal play is for five of the female member of the exploration team. She will win you five hundred coins.
An amazon mask is the wild symbol in this game. It substitutes for all other symbols aside from the 'Golden Monkey Head' symbol and the 'Lucky Coin' symbol. During play all wild symbols are collected, and once you have collected a dozen three random reel positions will be replaced with a wild on the next spin, after which the 'wild spin collection meter' will be reset to zero.
Golden Monkey Head symbols are also collected. For every ten heads that are collected, you are awarded with a bonus games.
- 10 heads – Match Two Game – the player must pick tiles under which cash amounts are hidden. Any matched pair awards that amount to the player. The game ends when two skeleton head symbols are revealed.
- 20 heads – Wheel of Fortune – the wheel of fortune is spun once. It has two levels – the first determines the amount of coins won, the second a prize mutliplier. You are awarded the coin amount multiplied by the multiplier.
- 30 heads – Eight free spins with progressive wilds – eight spins in which the chance of landing a wild is increased progressively.
- 40 heads – Five free spins with tall wilds – five spins in which tall wilds may appear on reels one or five.
If the lucky coin symbol appears in the main game then a free re-spin is awarded. The reels keep on spinning until a win is acheived.
