Hidden Valley is a Quickspin powered online slot game that has five reels and a total of 40 pay lines. There are multiple features including free spins with extra wilds and a wild multiplier feature with up to 10x multipliers up for grabs.
Hidden Valley is set in the utopia of Shangri-La in the Himalayas. The backdrop view is of snow peaked mountains with symbols featuring hikers, a Sherpa, a yak, an eagle and more. These are the high paying symbols while the traditional 10 to Ace symbols pay out lower amounts yet appear frequently. The soundtrack heard throughout the game is chilled and soothing to match the utopian theme.
Game Features and Betting Options

There may be a limit of 40 coins with the pay lines being fixed but the coin sizes may be adjusted to start from as little as 0.01 each. This makes 0.40 the minimum bet per spin with a maximum bet 120.00. The betting options do include those needed for the Hidden Valley online slot wild multiplier feature. Bets can be adjusted at the bottom of the screen using the appropriate controls.
When all bets are ready the play button will start the online real money slots NZ but an auto play option is available. Click on the auto play button to start this feature and click on it again to return to manual spin mode.
The Wild Multiplier Bonus Feature
The green wild symbols are stacked when they land on the Hidden Valley reels. Any spin can trigger the wild multiplier feature which brings about a meter on the side of the reels.
The purpose is to select a desired betting level that directly corresponds with a multiplier. The multipliers that can be chosen are 1x to 2x, 2x to 4x, 3x to 6x or 4x to 10x. The higher the multiplier is, the higher the betting level is.
A winning combination that then includes the multiplier will be paid out according to the chosen multiplier amount.
Free Spins with Extra Wild Symbols
The Hidden Valley free spins feature is triggered with three, four or five bonus symbols landing scattered on the reels. When this happens two wheels appear of which need to be spun to reveal which of the three characters will become an extra wild symbol. The options are the male hiker, the female hiker or the Sherpa. The second wheel will determine the number of free spins that will be played. The range is from seven to 12.
If at least two of the bonus symbols appear during a free spin, either extra wild symbols or extra free spins are won. It is possible for all three of the character symbols to end up being extra wilds during this feature. The wild multiplier feature does apply while free spins are being played but all free spins bets are set at the triggering bet amount.
