Game developer Endorphina is launching a new adventure slot game called Crystal Skull. Filled with “adventure and twists,” the title asks players to join a daring antiquities explorer who's on a quest to find “the last of all lost secret crystal skulls for his exquisite artifact collection,” the company said of the game's story and background.
The game is a 3-row, 5-reel, 25-payline slot. Among the symbols on the reels, players will find a crystal skull that acts as a Wild. The Wild substitutes for all symbols except for the Bonus. It appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 and expands vertically to complete combinations.
The Wild completes combinations with the Scatter and doesn't expand in these combinations, substituting for only one Scatter per reel, the game developer notes. Scatter symbols count on any position on the reels.
Landing 3 Scatter symbols triggers the Bonus Game Wheel of Fortune. It will appear on reels 3, 4, and 5 only. Once a player enters the Bonus Game, the wheel starts rotating and stops at a random position. It could be a certain multiplier of the total bet – from x10 to x25, or Bonus section activating the Treasure Hunt Bonus. The player has 3 attempts to try to get the maximum multiplier, the company added.
In the Treasure Hunt Bonus, there are 5 levels of 5 stone skulls. Skulls hide either treasure or ancient snakes. The player can check a skull per level. All wins received during the pick game are added up. The Bonus cannot be won again during the feature. “It's impossible to get back to the Wheel of Fortune Bonus Game from the Treasure Hunt Bonus,” notes Endorphina.
Players can double their winnings up to 10 times during the Classic Risk Game, the developer highlighted, also noting that Bonus Pop is also available in the game.
“Legends say that each skull has mystical elements that can be used to your advantage to win as big as you can dream,” Endorphina further described the game in a press release. “Some people believe that skulls are proof of extraterrestrials' visits and that they might contain some secrets of our world that were once protected by Ancient Mayan civilization.”
This new game follows the launch earlier this month of a sports-themed slot, Football 2022, released to commemorate the soccer World Cup. In the game, players can choose their team of choice, compete in matches, and unlock special rewards “to kick off an adventure of their own.”
