About the Game

The game has a tranquil setting with a misty forest covered in moss acting as the background. The reels are set against a large stone gate which has Celtic markings on them.

•Free Spins feature- It is activated when you land 3 or more Tree Scatters anywhere on the reels. You’ll receive 10 free spins to start off. You’ll encounter stones inscribed with Celtic messages. The misty forest clears and you’ll have to pick among 20 stones. The number of scatters that land will activate the feature and determine how many stones you get to pick on. When you pick the stones, you get to reveal more free spins as 2, 3, 4, 5 or up to 10. These will be added onto the 10 free spins you received at the start. You also get extra single and double multipliers that are added onto your initial single multiplier. There’s also extra wild symbols, i.e. the Deer and/or Owl icons, symbols from the main game which transform into wilds. The 2nd and 4th reel can also become wild and remain that way for the rest of the free spins.

The Verdict

Secret of the Stone slot has a medium to high variance. The wins are most likely to start during the Free Spins feature. Most of the wins occur during the main game, but the big wins come in during free spins. If you get 2 Wild Reels and a couple of extra free spins, you can have a huge payout waiting for you.
