Adventure Trail is every explorer’s dream: to be dropped into unknown territory in search of something never before seen! A highly immersive setup guarantees maximum thrills with frequently flowing base game wins and epic bonus features, one of which offers a shot at one of four jackpots worth up to £100K! How’s that for a non-progressive slot? Despite being powered by a lesser-known software developer, Rarestone Gaming, the overall offering of the Adventure Trail slot is as grand as you’d expect from top-tier labels, only without the hefty price tag per spin!
A quest of a lifetime begins in the heart of a jungle with an Indiana Jones-style guide to help in your search for great riches. There’s no mistaking where the gold is hidden; the 5×3 reel engine is encased in the stuff – you just need to tempt it out to play!
The graphics are superb and there’s even a gentle breeze brushing past the exotic plant life while the sun dances in the sky overhead but be careful where you put your feet – there are some wild animals out there who are dying to (m)eat you!
Selecting a bet is as easy as pressing the plus or minus buttons on the control panel; the minimum bet is just 10p and the maximum is just £50 a spin – which is hardly high roller territory, but it can produce epic wins, nonetheless. The maximum base game win is £2,500 – a sum which is applied to max stakes players on the presence of five scatter symbols (the water-plane), but the biggest cash of all hides within the golden monkey, despite it offering no actual face value! Before we delve into the pre-set jackpots, let’s take a look at the other pays and symbols.
The moustached gentleman explorer delivers wins of up to £300; the croc offers a snapping good prize of up to £200; a pair of binoculars could ‘see’ you net up to £150 while the compass could guide you to a great win of up to £125. Remaining pays are derived from card values; 10, J, Q, K and A, all with an identical max pay of up to £80. What do we mean by ‘up to a maximum of’? The values stated are based on maximum stakes, so for bets lower than £50 a spin, the values of these will be less.
Pre-set jackpots – four to be precise, come with re-spin feature. Land at least 6 golden monkey symbols on the reels and it’ll instantly kick in. Initially, 3 re-spins are granted, and all golden monkey symbols that awarded the feature will be locked in place. Your first re-spin will see your re-spin meter decrease to 2 while the reels spin. If you’re lucky enough to spin in more monkey symbols, the re-spin meter resets to the maximum of 3. This process will continue until you either have no re-spins left, or you have an entire grid of golden monkey symbols. This awards the grand jackpot along with all values displayed on each of the 15 golden monkeys! The mini jackpot (20x), minor (100x) and major (500x) jackpots are all up for grabs too – depending on how many golden monkey icons you spin in!
Any other features to excite? How’s a free spins bonus sound? Three or more scatter symbols will trigger 6 free games and to add even more excitement and ways to win. The reels will be stripped of all low paying symbols – so no 10, J, Q, K or A symbols anywhere! Free games can be re-trigged, and the re-spin jackpots feature can also be accessed from this bonus. Wilds can go a long way to helping you secure a win, so keep an eye on the treasure map making an appearance on reels 2, 3, 4 or/and 5!
Understanding the control panel will go a long way to helping you understand the game. The good news is it’s easy to recognise. Sitting pretty to the lower of the screen is where you’ll find your total bet, total wins, a spin and autoplay button as well as a great big ‘I’ icon. ‘I’ stands for information and this is where you’ll find details on how to win and the various bonus features.
Understanding a game before laying is vital – you wouldn’t splash money out on a car before knowing how it works would you? So why should an online slot be any different? Recognising the symbols and how to trigger features will add to your overall gaming experience, whether you’re a low stakes player who looks to conserve your bankroll, or a high roller looking for that great big win, so make use of the pay-table and rules on how to play before sticking your money in the slot!
Adventure Trail bears all the hallmarks of a Pragmatic Play slot. Wolf Gold and Mustang Gold were among the very first to offer such a dynamic re-spin and win jackpot system. In fact, re-spin and win jackpots have become so popular and there are many delivering this same feature. From Wish Upon a Star (a festive filled slot) by Novomatic to Fluffy in Space by Eyecon, each one is designed to boost player engagement with maximum results!
There are many different things to keep players amusement levels at an all-time high’ wilds, multipliers, free spins and then that star attraction, and it’s the frequency of this feature that makes these slots so popular! Adventure Trail slot should not be missed!
