Secret Of The Stones MAX Slot Game (NetEnt)
The secret of the Stones MAX is the latest entrant into this industry after it was recently released (February 2020) into the market by NetEnt.
It is set up on 5 reels and a total of 25 lines and from what I have come to understand this new development is a remake from a similarly-titled game without the "MAX") that was released in 2013 by NetEnt.
There is no much difference between the Secret of the Stones and the MAX version. However, the only notable change is in the payments, where the latter offers up to 25,000 xs in a top payout. It is also highly volatile.
Secret Of The Stones MAX Gameplay
To form winning combination you need to land matching symbols on a payline. For a winning combo to be recognised, it needs to start within the first reel.
The secret of the Stones MAX is somehow based on the dark world, and precisely on a sorcerer. There is also the element of mystical stones.
The sorcerer is what helps you to unlock the secrets of the stone where you can reveal the big payouts.
Game Symbols and Features
Being a dark world themed slot, you can expect to see images most associated with sorcery and witchcraft. Well, Secret of the Stones MAX has different symbols in the form of a wolf, bull, owl, deer, snake, a sorcerer, not to forget the tree of life.
There are A -10 Royals as well. The deer is the symbol with the highest regular reward of 160x your stake. However, you need five symbols to get this.
The sorcerer is the slot’s wild symbol which you can also use as a substitute for all regular symbols. However, the wild cannot be used to substitute the scatter which appears in the form of a tree.
For the prizes, Secret of the Stones Max seems to have great potential as rewards can go to as high as 25,000xs if bonus features are used.
The older version of this game went to a max of 2,500 xs.
The secret of the Stones Betting and Prizes
Bets costs between $0.25 and $125 per round. The slot has an excellent RTP of 96.81% which is a little more when compared to the 2013 version that gave 95.72%.
The volatility of this slot game is quite high, so you may want to approach it with caution. This is particularly important if you are not very experienced with these types of slot games.
Tree of life symbols are what awards you the free signs, and you can get up to 10 free spins if you manage to land at least three of them on the reels.
Apart from the free spins, there are other features that include multipliers, wild reels, and extra expanding wilds.
The Secret of the Stones MAX has very little difference from the older version, and this is on the payments. The older game offered a top payout of 2,500xs while this latest release has much bigger payouts of 25,000 xs.
If you want nothing to do with sorcery, and activities carried out in the dark world, you might not find this game to be fun.
However, the top payouts, great design, and excellent RTP make the slot a worthy trial.
