Loosely based on Frances Hodgson Burnett children’s book published in 1911, Secret Garden slot from Eyecon takes you on a charming journey to the English countryside.Did somebody day Pimms o clock? It’s enough to make me to pack my picnic blanket and skip to the nearest park with a hamper full of sausage rolls…
But enough of my chatter, this game is all about the free spins as there are a maximum of 25 of them up for grabs – and they also come with a x3 multiplier.
What better reason to try it out?
Set in a secluded and quiet garden setting, assorted multi-coloured flora and fauna make up the symbols on the reels, while the graphics are represented by the kind of hand-drawn illustrations that you might find in the original book.
HD visuals they’re not, but sometimes less is more, compadres…
Secret Garden slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 pay-lines. You can take your freshly cut grass spins from 0.25 going up to a max of £12.50 per go.
Your reel icons include; yellow daffodils, a long-tailed bird on a branch, some rather lovely red ladybirds, happy sunflowers, dragonflies mid buzz, trippy toadstools, a mature oak tree, some romantic roses in full bloom and a golden padlock.
The symbol you will want to keep a close eye on is that padlock, my fine friends, as it acts as the wild icon in the game. This golden beauty can appear on any reel and will substitute for all other reel symbols to help you form extra wins.
Meanwhile, the fragrant red rose is the scatter and will activate the bonus round. I’m pretty sure there’s a sonnet about that…
Land 3x of the red rose scatters anywhere on the reels and you will be awarded 15, 20 or 25 Free Spins – and don’t forget that each and every one of your wins will be tripled thanks to a x3 multiplier.
The bonus round can also be re-triggered up to 15 times by landing another 3x of the red rose Scatters, which is really very generous indeed. Bravo to Eyecon!
If you feel the need to up the ante, try the Gamble Bonus.
You can play after any winning spin and it will pay double your stake or nothing . All you need to do to cash in is correctly guess one of the two playing card options (either red or black) that is presented to you. But do beware; if you pick the a wrong colour you will lose all your hard-earned spondoolies.
The Monkey Verdict
Secret Garden slot really ticked my fancy. Yes, the graphics are simple and there are no base game extras (which may make it seem a little outdated compared to some its peers), but the solid wins more than make up for it. As with a lot of Eyecon slots these biggest pays will come from the Free Spins with that 3x multiplier.
It turns out that money does grow on trees after all! Spiffing!
