Design and Gameplay
The secrets treasure of shaman will always remain hidden somewhere out in the world. But who said anything about their treasure? Treasure of Shaman is yet another compelling and feature riddled online video slots game from Fugaso. Dwell in the jungle in search of ancient shaman treasure.
Heavily reminiscing on the mysterious and long gone Easter Islands culture, Treasure of Shaman succeeds in attracting players with its unique theme and style. The most obvious element is the human stone statue on the right, a straight doppelganger of the Eastern Islands monuments. This one even opens its mouth and speaks out inaudible chants every time you win. The shaman on the left acts as the main attraction of the game, and is well animated, not to mention dressed for the occasion. Aside from the aforementioned elements, the game’s green colors, the usage of indigenous music and the bamboo built reels make use of the source of inspiration rather well.
Treasure of Shaman features a 3x5 reel and 20 fixed paylines structure. However the player can increase or decrease the coin value of his bet, as well as the bet level. The maximum bet is 2000, which should give you an idea of the kinds of payout that the player can win. In all honesty we have seen better looking symbols, but what does presentation have to do with luck? The lower paying symbols are the letters A, K, Q, and J, and the number 10. The high paying symbols - excluding the scatter, the wild and bonus ones - are the blue mask, the orange with green dots mask and the mask with the colorful vertical stripes.
As for the scatter, three or more trigger Free Games and a hefty multiplier. The wild symbol appears on all reels, forms combinations, and acts as substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter and bonus.
The main feature of Treasure of Shaman has to be the bonus game. It is two-tiered bonus game, and is the game’s selling point. Lucky players can walk away with a maximum multiplier of 14 175x their initial line bet. To initiate the mini-game the player must land on at least 3 bonus symbols across an active payline. When 4 or 5 bonus symbols are present the bonus prize will be multiplied by 5 or 27 respectfully. During the first stage of the bonus round the player collects containers with gold to win prizes. During this stage you have the chance to win an entrance to the shaman’s treasury. There you will have to pick one of two treasure chests winning the gamer additional multipliers, including the maximum multiplier of 14 175.
The game also features a Gamble Mini game, where you have the chance to double your current round winnings by choosing a higher card than the dealer.
At first glance Treasure of Shaman does not strike the player as a multi featured game. However we can honestly say that this game is overflowing with bonus content and is a superb addition to Fugaso’s repertoire.
