Secrets of the Phoenix is an Aztec-themed game, run on Gamesys software, and which has a broad appeal thanks to its innovative bonus round and tumbling reels, allowing you to win more as winning symbols vanish, replaced by new ones.
Win by matching the stone relics, and land four or more consecutive cascade wins to release the phoenix from the ashes and kick off the free spins bonus round.
How to play
Matching symbols on just one payline earns you a win, as will landing three Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
The game has 25 paylines and five reels, and, as with any slot, the idea is to win money with winning combinations of symbols. The best money is on offer in the bonus round, and, the more the reels tumble, the closer you get to this.
First set your coin value, or wagering denomination. In this game, it ranges up to £4, but if you’re a new player, you may want to choose lower values, maybe from a penny to 20p.
The number of lines you can cover is set at 25 – unlike other slots, this is fixed. To work out the value of your total bet per spin, multiply your coin value by 25.
Spin the wheels
Having selected the sum you’re betting each game, hit ‘Spin’ to rotate the wheels. Reels move more quickly than in other slots, and there is no option for stopping them.
Winnings are worked out as per the paytable. Winning symbol combinations are only valid if they start in the reel on the left-hand side.
Auto spin lets you choose how many spins you want the slot to make – then just sit back and watch!
Secrets of the Phoenix: The bonus round
The way you enter the bonus round, and what you find when you’re there, set Secrets of the Phoenix apart. You progress further up the bonus round stages as you match winning symbol combinations, and this also determines how many free spins you’ll enjoy.
Bagging four consecutive winning ‘tumbles’ lands you seven free spins in the bonus round, rising to 10, 15, 20 or a maximum of 25 freebie spins.
Triggering this round means the game changes as wild symbols pop up more frequently, and you can bag extra free spins along the way.
