Set Your Stake
Your 25 paylines are fixed in place, meaning that they will all be in play with every spin of the reels. It is up to you to decide how much to play against each line.
Bets start at 1p per payline but are multiplied by the 25 lines, creating a minimum bet of 25p. The line bet can be increased up to a maximum of 50p a line, equating to £12.50 a spin.
Use the buttons below the reels to adjust the coin value as you wish.
In addition to the coin value, you also have the potential to add some extra weight to your bet. The level of the bet means, basically, the number of coins you want to bet per line. For example, how many pennies you want to stake for each payline.
This is automatically set to one, but can be increased up to 10, should you wish to do so. An increase in the bet level will also increase your stake; whatever value you choose will be multiplied by the coin bet to create your total bet.
Just below the green spin button, you will see your total stake, so make sure you’re happy with it before you start to play.
And, once you’re ready to spin, you know what to do!
Secrets of the Symbols
Actually, there are no secrets when it comes to the value of them! Match three or more identical symbols across a payline and you will be rewarded, with the bigger payouts coming from five-symbol matches.
Each of the symbols has a touch of a Celtic look to them, but you can easily identify the animals within each symbol.
The red deer holds the highest value in the Secret of the Stones slot. Five deer landing all the way along a payline could pay out 1250 times your line bet!
Next up, the golden owl has a top payout potential of 750 times your line bet, followed by the bull with 500 times your line bet for five of a kind.
A blue wolf-patterned symbol could bring you 300 times your line bet if you can line up five of them. The last of the high-value symbols is a winding grey snake with top potential payouts of 200 times the line bet.
Our lower-value symbols are the card values from 10 through to Ace, each with a little pattern on them, too. Maximum payouts range from 50 up to 150 times the line bet, for matching five of a kind along a payline.
NetEnt has treated us to two bonus features in the Secret of the Stones slot. While they may look familiar, there is a special twist in amongst them to make your gameplay unique and just a little bit different every time. Let’s take a look.
The Wild symbol in Secret of the Stones looks like a wizard among the druids. Perhaps he is a warlock. Whatever his official title, he is easy to spot with his big stick and long beard.
In the main game, the wild symbol can cover individual positions on the reels, and substitute for any of the standard symbols in play to create and extend winning lines. There is the potential for the wizard to extend down a whole reel during free spins, too.
Golden Tree Scatter
Secret of the Stones’ scatter symbol is the golden tree. Land three of these anywhere on the reels and you will be awarded 10 free spins.
Before your free spins begin, though, the destiny lies in your hands.
Twenty stones will appear on the screen; this is the Bonus Collector and works exactly as it sounds. Depending on how many golden trees have triggered the feature, you will get an equivalent number of chances to randomly select bonuses from the stones. Your chosen stones will reveal features to be applied to your free spins.
Features include multipliers, wild reels, extra wilds, and even additional free spins!
The graphics in the Secret of the Stones slot are fantastic and the attention to detail in the patterns on the symbols makes them look brilliant.
With NetEnt, we can always rely on the smooth operation of a game. The slick gameplay and the accompanying soft sounds of nature paired with the joyful noises when a match is made, create a lovely atmosphere. A tempo change is ramped up during the free spins, which in themselves are unique. We like having the ability to choose our own special extras, even if they’re only revealed after we’ve chosen the stones!
The RTP of this game is 96.72%.
