Secrets Of The Phoenix Slots

Secrets-Of-The-PhoenixA game developed by Gamesys, Secrets Of The Phoenix was created exclusively for Virgin Games, one of the biggest casinos in the portfolio of this developer. It’s an interesting game, with a beautiful design, where the theme is based on long lost civilizations, but with a fantasy element built into it as well. As you will see in the game, there are floating cities in the background, with big Pyramid like temples on them, surrounded by forests but on pieces of land which are floating in mid air.

This beautiful game makes sure that you have absolutely no reason to ignore it, giving you on its 25 lines features like the cascading reels, scatter symbols, wilds, wild reels and free spins. A $4,000 top jackpot is mentioned on the paytable (500x).

Features of Secrets Of The Phoenix

Multiple cool features were used in its case, the cascading reels being part of the fun part, along with the free spins, the Wild Phoenix, scatters and wild reels.

The Phoenix symbol is quite a normal wild, which will not offer you any kind of additional feature and without awarding any prizes. It will be useful anyway, as it is the only one that can substitute for other icons and be part of winning combinations which wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.

Another symbol to watch out for is the scatter, which can pay from any position it appears. This ability is the one that gives it its name, since the symbols are scattered on the reels. Having between three and five icons of this type will bring you a prize of 4x to 20x the bet.

Cascading Reels

One of the things that you will love most about this game is the feature called Cascading Reels. It’s used in many other slots, though with different names. Whenever you have a winning combo, the cascading reels start up and the positions occupied by it will go away in fire. New symbols come in when this happens, occupying the now empty spots and hopefully forming a new combo. The Cascading Reels can give you multiple consecutive wins, if you get a new combo each time new symbols appear. If you manage to get rid of an entire reel or multiple reels, you will get the Wild Phoenix active.


Wild Phoenix Reel

If you manage to clear an entire reel with the help of the Cascading Reels, meaning that the three symbols on it were all part of winning combinations that round, you get the Wild Phoenix Reel to activate in that position. Only the next cascade benefits from this feature. This is basically an expanding wild.


Free Games Feature

The slot has free spins as well, but they don’t get triggered like they do in other slots. Instead of requiring a certain symbol to appear scattered on the reels, you need four consecutive cascade wins, all of them from the same wager.


If you have more than four cascades to trigger the free spins, then it’s even better, as that number decides how many rounds you get without paying. Four cascade wins trigger 7 free spins, five will give you 10, six will bring 15, seven will offer 20 and the maximum of 25 spins comes when you have eight consecutive cascade wins.

Betting options and jackpots

You’re not going to be able to change the number of active lines, they’re 25 at all times, but you do modify the coin size as you need to, the range being $0.01 to $8. The betting range goes from $0.25 to $200.

The game’s 500x top prize means only $4,000 when you used the maximum coin denomination. It’s not a lot of money, but the cascading reels will often manage to give you wins that you don’t pay for.

Design and symbols

The design is one of the best that Gamesys has created, clearly being one of their more recent titles. The mix of fantasy, South American civilizations and the Phoenix is an interesting one, and the designers did a good enough job putting it all together, that it doesn’t seem weird at all. The floating pyramids you see in the distance look great and they enhance the game’s atmosphere. The symbols look like blocks of stone, which arrange themselves on top of each other.


Symbols: Phoenix (wild), Idol (20x the bet, scatter), Golden Lion (500 coins), Green Dragon (250 coins), Blue Gryphon (250 coins), Stone Falcon (100 coins), Gray Monster (75 coins), Brown Monster (50 coins), Blue Stone Column (30 coins), Brown Stone Column (30 coins) and Green Stone Column (30 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

While the top prizes offered in this game are not as impressive as the features or the design, I still believe you should give this slot a chance.

You will find Secrets Of The Phoenix at any online casino which chooses to use software from Gamesys, playable either for free or for real money.
