Take on the mantle of a brave adventurer and challenge the perils of a medieval dungeon to loot its riches in the Treasure Heroes online slot from Microgaming in collaboration with Rabcat. This title combines unconventional mechanics with stylish visuals in a medieval adventure with plenty of twists, turns and treasure. The overall look of this slot is reminiscent of 1980’s birds-eye view PC dungeon crawler games, where you would travel from room-to-room in dungeon labyrinths, seeking out the final battle and its spoils.
The reels are set in a floor of stone and bordered on either side by doors and various scattered items you would expect to see in a dungeon. The door to the left looks heavy and plain, but the one to the right is large, brightly coloured and sports golden dragons at the top of its arch.
The soundtrack is an adventuring medieval tune and captures the visual mood aptly. You will need to wield moving reels and free spins to claim the game’s biggest prize.
In the absence of paylines, you get cluster winning combinations if at least 6 of the same symbols connect vertically or horizontally. Ideally, you would want a cluster of 25 symbols, which can reward you up to 1000x your wager. A winning cluster will trigger the slot’s primary base feature. The 5x5 grid’s reels and rows shift in sequence and any empty gaps left are filled in with new symbols. This gives you the chance for further winning cluster combinations, which will re-activate the moving reels.
It only takes landing 2 key scatters to trigger the free spins mode. The symbols combine to form a single key, which unlocks the hulking, decorated door to the right of the reels. You will then travel to a treasure-filled room, the moving reels mechanic is no more, and you are handed 10 free spins. While the free spins feature is active, a skeletal figure in the corner will pull a lever after every spin, randomly transforming some male and female hero symbols on the reels into sticky wilds. The sticky wild symbols remain in place until the feature has ended.
Treasure Heroes slot brings a lot of innovation and fun to the table. The graphics and animation are beautiful and seamless and the game’s nod to PC dungeon crawlers is executed perfectly. The cluster wins feature, combined with the moving reels give you constant wins and the free spins mode ramps up the action with a string of sticky wilds potentially propelling you to a healthy $77 000.00 payout. This slot is aimed at the more casual end of the gambler spectrum, but this is a title that just about anyone could enjoy.
