The biggest secrets hidden on this planet, often involve huge stones, used to build structures and megaliths. They can be found all around the world and some of them are still a mystery for historians. Imaginable, since we have no clue how human beings where able to move these enormous stones. What was their secret, how did these ancient cultures build these enormous constructions? Another question that pops up is why using these enormous heavy weighted stones, when the same structures could have been constructed with easier to handle smaller and lighter ones? A question that probably will never be answered, because sometimes these kind of mysteries aren’t meant to be solved, just as the infinity of our universe, or maybe even worse the finiteness of it, can’t be understand by human beings, we most probably never get a grip on these megalithic complexes. Luckily there are many things left we do get a grip on, like for example the fact Netent is one the best software developers in the industry, proved with Secret of the Stones.
Inspired by stones
If I would tell you Net Entertainment is offering a video slot inspired by stones, I think you would laugh at first. Understandable, because how can you design a nice video slot inspired by stones? Well Netent can as it was after all Netent who combined Aliens and Robots in Alien Robots, while coming up with a rather strange Evolution theory. They even used Turkeys in Wild Turkey and ghosts in Ghost Pirates. Just as it isn’t the first time Net Entertainment used history as a theme their video slots like for example Secrets of Horus, Egyptian Heroes and Viking’s Treasure.
After all, people have always been fascinated by Druids like Stone Henge, the Summer Solstice linked to them or their links to King Arthur, again used in another Netent video slot. Secret of the Stones has therefore been accepted by many players, although I think the many extra features also have something to with it, just as the Celtic sound effects while enriched with tranquil surroundings.
While newer video slots available in the many Netent Casinos don’t always give you the opportunity anymore to touch the amount of paylines, secret of the Stones does. This results in a minimum bet of 0.01, though I don’t recommend to touch this part of the navigation menu. My advice is as always to play with the maximum amount of paylines activated and in this case your minimum bet will be 0.25. Though you can always decide to upgrade your total bet due to the ten bet levels and the six different coin values. All paylines activated, while all bet levels selected you can also choose to play with the maximum coin value of 0.50 resulting in a total bet of 125.00, prefect for all type of players as there are seriously dozens of different betting options possible in between. No matter if you’re a low risk player or a high roller, the chance Secret of the Stones has the perfect betting option for you is big.
Old and innovative hand in hand
Enter the game trough a large stone gate, ornately designed with the markings of the time. The moment you pass the large stone gate, you will get mesmerised by the many features Secret of the Stone is offering as there is a Wild, Scatter, Free Spins and a Bonus game. But before Free Spins start, you’ll first pass the bonus game, where you get the chance to add even more Free Spins, Multipliers, Wilds and more.
There are many Wild features hanging around in Secret of the Stones, but the main game offers only one of them. Wild symbols can appear on any reel in the main game and in Free Spins and substitute for all symbols except Scatter symbols. Having said that it’s time to move on to the next feature, which is quite an impressing one as I’m talking about Free Spins. I love Free Spins, but I have to admit this feature would have been soulless without the Bonus game you pass before entering Free Spins. I’m talking about an interactive Free Spins bonus collection where you get the chance to collect different types of bonus features, just before Free Spins start. Once you entered the bonus game you’ll find yourself peering through thick fog at a tree surrounded by stones inscribed with secret Celtic messages. After the mist is cleared up a bit the surroundings change into a lush green garden and you’ll get the chance to pick some of the stones to either reveal 3, 4 or 5 bonus features. The amount of selections is equal to the number of Scatter symbols that activated Free Spins. After each pick the stone will award you with extra Free Spins, Multipliers, Wild reels or extra Wild symbols. And after you have unearthed the secret features, rays of sunlight shower over the ancient stone garden and Free Spins will be activated. And maybe Secret of the Stones isn’t packed with extra’s, for sure this will all be forgotten the moment reels start to role during Free Spins, so take a journey back to a time when Stonehenge was used by the ancient druids and unlock the mysteries of the ancient stone garden as can be found in Secret of the Stones.
