This video slot game by EGT is an invitation to travel to the ancient Inca Empire of Peru and win your share of their treasures.
This mysterious South American civilisation has inspired many stories and myths brought back by the Spanish conquistadors in search of the famous Eldorado. While the Spaniards came home mostly empty-handed, players of Inca Gold II will have another chance at discovering the renowned city of gold!
Let’s find out how in the rest of the review of this potentially treasure filled cash game…
Inca Gold II takes you all the way to the Andean mountains, under clear blue skies and amongst large cornfields. A city can be seen in the background, somehow reminiscent of the Machu Picchu ruins.
The scenery around the reels is colourful and beautiful, giving off a peaceful vibe. The reels themselves are simply floating above it on a dark red background, which makes the symbols stand out sharply.
There is no music per so in Inca Gold II, but each win is accompanied by a unique cheerful tone where notes of pan flutes can be heard. All these elements help create a coherent atmosphere with an abundance of thoughtful details.
The floating, semi-transparent five reels occupy most of the game screen, with all the commands you need to play located on each side and at the bottom. Use the shortcuts framing the reels to the left and right to choose how many paylines to activate. You can choose to play on either 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 paylines.
The space below the reels has several displays for you to monitor your credit balance and the amount of your last win. Choose an amount to bet amongst the five shortcuts to set the reels spinning in a single click. You can bet either 1, 2, 5, 10 or 20 coins per line at a time.
Once you are satisfied with your settings, you can alternatively click the orange Autoplay button in order to let the reels spin loose in a series of consecutive bets. Click the button again to come back to single spin mode. After each win, you have the option to gamble your gold by guessing the colour of a hidden card. The smaller the original bet, the more attempts you will be given. Each correct answer doublets your wager, but a single mistake will make it all disappear!
Another important part of the gameplay is the Jackpot Cards progressive game. It is a progressive jackpot that can be triggered randomly after every win in the normal game. You goal is to flip around face-down cards until you find three of the same suit, which will trigger the corresponding jackpot. Spades are the most valuable cards, so try to aim for those.
The paytable of Inca Gold II contains nine basic symbols, all directly inspired by the rich Inca civilisation.
We begin with the least valuable symbols, in the shape of a Pan Flute, ripe Tomatoes and a Lama. They are followed by a silver Mask, a mighty Eagle flying in the sky and a Conquistador. Winning combinations are made up of three or more identical symbols and they pay from left to right.
The Inca Prince and Princess are next on the list, but the paytable screen is dominated by the Golden Inca Mask symbol, which can multiply your wager by up to 1,000! All symbols have a hand-drawn look and become animated after each win. The result is a lively game with many hidden visual surprises, and some really high stakes!
Inca Gold II has a few more surprises in store for all players, in the shape of two extra special symbols.
The first one of them is the Wild card of the game, represented by a gold Inca Coin. It can only appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel to help create extra winning combinations by substituting any of the basic symbols listed above. The Coin can randomly expand to the whole reel and create even more combos as it does so.
Finally, the piece of Mosaic is the Scatter symbol in Inca Gold II. Not only is it the most valuable of all symbols, but it will trigger a reward regardless of alignment, anywhere on the reels. A combination of three or more Scatter initiates an additional Bonus of 15 Free Spins, where all your earnings are automatically multiplied by three!
Inca Gold II manages to blend classic slot game elements with innovations such as the Jackpot Cards or the shortcuts around the screen. You willfind compatibility on most devices from iOS to Samsung Android powered phones. It is easy to play even for beginners and the stakes are really high!
