The Amazons are a race of fierce female warriors that appears frequently in Greek mythology. But probably because of the association with the river, the Amazons in legend are also located in the rain forests of South America. This article reviews two online slot games based on the theme of Amazons.
The first Amazon themed video slot is Secrets of the Amazon from Playtech, which is live at online casinos like Casino Tropez. The wild symbol is the female Amazon warrior. It doubles payouts when substituting in winning combinations. It also awards line payouts on its own. The five-of-a-kind payout for this symbol is 50,000 times the line bet and this indicates a very high variance. The other symbols that award line payouts are the creatures from the Amazon jungles and include panther, cheetah, toucan, parakeet, snake, gecko and frog. The exotic moonflower is the scatter symbol. In the base game the top scatter payout is an unprecedented 2,000 times the total bet. Three or more scattered moonflower symbols trigger the free spins bonus feature. You have to pick one of the flowers on the second screen to be initially awarded between 5 and 20 free spins. The free spins can be retriggered. Each free spin raises the multiplier 1x. In the end you can win up to 50 free spins with a multiplier up to 50x.
Fortunes of the Amazons is a video slot from Cryptologic and is live at InterCasino. It has more to do with the Amazon warriors. The setting is a vast plain, more akin to ancient Greece terrain than the Amazon forests. The highest paying symbol is the Fortunes of the Amazons logo. This is followed three female warriors with ferocious win animations, three gemstones set in gold, the famed bow and arrows and breastplate. The payouts are on the lower side indicating low variance with frequent but small wins. The Wild logo in flames is the wild symbol. Three Amazon on horse symbols trigger the free spins feature, for which a different reel set is used. The number of free spins is determined the number of symbols in the triggering spin. The wild symbol becomes sticky during the free spins and remains fixed on the reels for the remainder of the feature. The free spins cannot be retriggered. The Amazon’s Fire feature is randomly triggered and has the warriors ride across the screens leaving a trail of random wilds.
