Of the three major ancient Central American civilizations, the Aztec, Maya and the Inca were the most prominent - the structures they built have stood - and continue to stand - the test of time. Our favorite of the three are the Inca, which is why Real Time Gaming’s Spirit of the Inca Slots was one of the first new releases we gravitated to when it came off the presses. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines, which makes it a fairly large slot with a lot of different ways to win - always a bonus for the online casino gamer. In fact, it is possible to gather up to 75 free games if enough of the relevant symbols align on the reels, so strongly consider playing this one for real money. The Instant Play option is, as always, available, though.
Speaking of playing for money, the smallest coin denomination is $0.02 per payline and the largest is $0.20 cents. You can bet this in increments up to a maximum $5.00 per game. Once you’re in the game, you’ll notice that the symbols all pay from the left to the right direction; the Scatter is different in that it pays in both directions for more opportunities to win with it.
Another major attribute of Spirit of the Inca slots is that it has a Progressive Jackpot. This doesn’t just appear at the end of a round, as it is a random jackpot and can pop up at any point in the game. The one caveat to potentially winning the full amount, however, is that you have to play the maximum bet. Spirit of the Inca Slots is, after all, a game of risk and opportunity. Here’s a short intro to the Incan-influenced symbols on the reels - we’ll delve into their values a bit in the following paragraph. You will find a gold bracelet, a ruby-encrusted necklace, an emerald jaguar symbol, a water jug, a scroll, another bracelet and an image of a pyramid on the reels.
The Incan Spirit is the wild symbol, and it substitutes (it’s also called the substitute symbol because of this property) for any other symbol on the reels except for the scatter, in order to satisfy the terms for a winning combination. For five Incan Spirit icons, you get 2000 coins, for four such icons, you receive 500 coins, for three Incan Spirit icons, 100 coins and for two such symbols, you get 10 coins. The Incan Priestess icon is the scatter symbol; five of these gets 100 coins, four of them gets 10 coins and three of them gets you 2 coins. Any wins in which the scatter participates, the result is multiplied by the total bet.
As far as the high paying symbols are concerned, there are a handful of these to watch on the reels. The first one is the Incan Pyramid; five of a kind unveils a win of 600 coins, four of a kind unveils 250 coins, three of a kind gets you 50 coins and two of a kind is good for 5 coins. Next up we have the interesting emerald jaguar idol; five of a kind is good for 600 coins, four of a kind gets you 150 coins, three of a kind is worth 25 coins and two of a kind nets 3 coins. The gold bracelet is fairly valuable at five of them, which is good for 300 coins. Four gold bracelets are good for 100 coins, three gold bracelets are worth 15 coins and two gold bracelets gets you 2 coins. The scroll is the next high paying symbol in line; five scrolls equals 200 coins, four scrolls on the reels equals 75 coins, three scrolls equals 10 coins and two scrolls gets 2 coins.
The lower-paying symbols are grouped together; they are worth the same values per group. In the first group of three, there’s the bag of jewels and the ruby encrusted necklace; five of each one gives 150 coins, four of each one gets you 50 coins and three of each is worth 5 coins. The second group of three is made up of both the water jug and the feathered obsidian dagger; five of a kind is 125 coins, four of a kind is 25 coins and three of a kind is 5 coins. The third and final group of symbols are the lotus flower and the stone bracelet; for five of these on the reels, you win100 coins, for four of them you get 15 coins and for three of them you receive 5 coins.
The Spirit of the Inca Feature is a doozy for the lucky gamer; if you can manage to get lucky enough for 15 of the Bonus Incan Headdress icons to show up on the reels in a sort of flush; then you get 5 bonus picks. One of the prizes that emerge from this is 25 free games; there’s also a prize multiplier that can number between 1-10. To access all of these features and more, download the casino software and make a deposit to play Spirit of the Inca Slots.
