Here at Fable Casino, we love bringing our players the biggest and best slots around, which is why we've adopted games from a range of different software developers. One of the games designers we have on board is Elk Studios, an independent brand which is dedicated to create flawless mobile games with interesting and unique themes.
However, as a smaller operation than big name developers such as NetEnt or NYX, Elk Studios don't launch new games half as frequently. This is why a new Elk Studios slot is always something to be celebrated, and that's exactly what we've got for you today.
Hidden launched late last year and we've very excited to bring it to our players! This is because not only does the slot boast beautiful Egyptian themed graphics, but it also features two engaging bonus rounds and chances to win up to 2,150x your wager on every spin! Read on to learn all you need to know about Hidden, then head over to the casino to give it a go.
Hidden is a 5 reel, 4 row slot with 178 ways to win, which is a rare treat from the team over at Elk Studios. The software developer brand often opt for more traditional reel-payline configurations so it's great to see a more innovative design. The slot is playable from as little as 20p, up to £100, per spin and is available across all devices include iOS and Android smartphones.
Hidden also looks superb although this isn't so surprising given Elk Studios' reputation for creating immaculate and creative slots. The game sports an Ancient Egypt theme and the reels therefore hang against a landscape of pyramids. As with all Elk Studios slots, Hidden has a storyline which is both amusing and engaging. The slot invites players to travel to Giza with Professor Taylor and his nephew Benjamin and both of these characters can be found as symbols on the reels. There's also a variety of other different fitting symbols, such as camels and statues. The game's lower paying symbols are represented by traditional playing card values, but these too have been given an Ancient makeover and so are carved into stone.
Although Hidden looks at first glance to be quite a light-hearted slot, don't let appearances fool you! Given that the game boasts a maximum win of over £200,000 and an RTP of 96.03% we'd classify it as a very volatile title, and therefore you need to manage your bankroll carefully if you want to achieve some big wins!
Hidden benefits from not one but two bonus rounds, the first of which is the Flashback Re-spins feature. This round can be randomly triggered on any base game spin and when activated players are given three free re-spins, with up to three of the central reels covered in sticky wild symbols. These symbols remain sticky for the duration of the round, which helps players rack up multiple winning combinations.
Hidden's second bonus round is the Treasure Room Free Spins feature, which is triggered when players collect three or more magnifying glass scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
In the extra spins round, players are initially given 5 extra spins but can collect more by finding more magnifying glass scatter symbols. In addition, when the round begins, one symbol will be chosen at random to become the expanding symbol. This means that whenever that symbol lands on the reels during the bonus round, it will then expand to create a 2×2 block. Furthermore, after each spin all non-expanding symbols will explode to allow new symbols to fall in from above. This means you can win over and over again on the same extra spin.
Hidden is undoubtedly a well created game which performs excellently across all devices. Elk Studios produce slots under a ‘mobile first' philosophy, which means all of their titles are completely optimized for playing on smartphones. This means that the game is quick to load and the graphics look just as good on the smaller screen as they do on desktop.
Overall we're very impressed with Hidden. It not only offers players an engaging narrative and beautiful gameplay, but it also provides plenty of chances to win big. For us the extra spins bonus round is definitely the game's stand out feature as this can lead to a good string of wins, but even the base game is very enjoyable. It is important, however, to note that Hidden is a high variance slot and so players may have to spin for quite a while to even pick up a single win. However we can assure you they're worth the wait!
