Inca Idols Review
Pre-Columbiana America, the Inca Empire was the largest and was an advanced civilisation that lasted until 1535. People throughout history have been fascinated with the time period ever since it was discovered.
This is what makes it the perfect setting for 1X2 Gaming's Inca Idols. As a grid slot, Inca Idols plays on 6-rows with 6-columns and makes up wins by matching up clusters. With free spins and giant wilds, players will be securing the treasures of the Incan empire in no time!
There is so much detail in this slot and it's clear that the developers put a lot of effort into making Inca Idols a visually stunning slot. On the reels, there are trees and plants blowing in the distance as well as traditional Inca symbols all over the screen.
Strangely, there are switchable characters that are available on the reels. There's a skinny and purple deity or the option to bring in a muscle deity. Strangely enough, none of these characters actually do anything to the reels but just give the player the choice to decide which one they want to see.
The sound design for this slot is quite grand and starts off with beautifully soothing music with whistles and woodwind instruments. During spins, there is the noise of the symbols falling as well as upbeat noises throughout wins.
In the base game, there's nothing really too complicated going on but enough to keep the game exciting. Of course, the most entertaining part of the game is the free spins round that is triggered by landing 5 or more bonus symbols.
At the bottom of the screen, the spin button and bet level can be found here. Non-UK players will find that there is a bonus buy button to the right of the reels.
There's nothing overly bad about the win potential in Inca Idols but it's nothing extraordinary. The RTP is 96.04% and is just over the average standard.
Inca Idols also contains a high volatility level leading to larger wins but less frequently. Sadly, the maximum win for this slot is 4,500x the stake which is quite middle of the road for a high volatility slot and players usually expect at least 10,000x the stake.
It's clear from just playing this slot for 10 minutes, that a lot of thought and effort went into the creation of this slot. Both the design and gameplay are pretty impressive and delightful.
However, there are some minor issues in the form of the maximum win and the character selection feature. The character selection feature could've delivered something different visually or added something extra to the slot - but sadly does not.
Despite the minor hiccups, there's nothing overly bad about the slot and the overall experience is definitely at a higher level. Fans of Incan slots should not miss out on Inca Idols.
