Where to play?
Rabcat released a slew of real money slots with impressive titles for Microgaming over the years. Sherlock of London is a prime example of the software house’s potential. We’re the first to admit that the jackpot size of some of the Rabcat slots err on the low side.
Treasure Heroes from Rabcat whisks you off to a fantasy realm where you must break into a treasure room and steal as much loot as possible. It genuinely feels like an adventure into the known. Rabcat took a leaf from the realm of video games with the game’s extraordinary art and an evocative sound track that enhances the player experience. Treasure Heroes is a Cluster Pays, 5 reel, medium variance slot machine with a hit frequency of 17.03%. It offers a jackpot (non-progressive) of 1,925x (£$77,000) your stake. From a structural point of view, Treasure Heroes has a Moving Wall and Treasure Chamber Free Spins features.
The reel set represents a dungeon which spins in an unusual way until all of them are synchronized. If you’re wondering why the reels spin like they do it’s because of the Moving Walls mechanic. Bets per spin start at £$0.20 to £$40 playable at our trustworthy Canadian online casinos. Did we mention that it’s a Cluster Pays slot? Yes, we did. Payouts occur from Clusters and not from lines. Therefore, you must land a minimum of 6 matching symbols to be eligible for a payout. There are only 6 symbols but they’re entirely unique to the slots.
The symbols on the reels are the gold lantern, dragon charm, blue gem, magician, treasure chest, and the warrior. The premiums are the Magician and the Treasure Chest. A combination of 25 of them on the grid pays 1,000x your stake. The Wild is the purplish symbol. It completes a winning combination by substituting any of the 6 symbols. Treasure Heroes has an RTP, or theoretical return to player percentage of 96.12%.
Moving Reels Mechanic
You’ll trigger the Moving Reels Mechanic when a combination of 6 matching symbols appear – the reels become synchonised. The bonus round has a lot of moving parts. Once you received your payout; reels 1, 3 and 5 shift vertically and horizontally. As such, symbols are randomly removed with new ones being added by the gaps left by them. The Cluster Pays system makes provision for multiple wins. However, it can be frustrating when winning symbols are ripped apart.
Treasure Chamber Free Spins
You’ll trigger the Free Spins round when 2 Keys pitch. In return you’ll receive 10 free spins. The two key scatters combine to unlock the door where play commences to the Treasure Chamber. Once a free spin ends, a skeleton pulls a lever which adds a Warrior or Magician symbol to the reels. They are sticky wilds which stick to the reels on each free spin. The key to winning big in the Free Spins is to land as many sticky wilds as possible. The free spins feature cannot be re-triggered.
Treasure Heroes is a ‘beautiful mess’. Initially it appears all over the place, but what really works here is its high visual fidelity, unusual reel structure and Cluster Pays Mechanic. The top jackpot of 1,950x your stake diminishes its true potential and a chain of winning combinations seldom occur. The impression we got was that Treasure Heroes gives with the one hand and takes with the other. With the industry’s technological ascent we’ll see similar slot releases from other developers soon. On the whole it’s an entertaining romp with a slightly drunken mechanic that’s ideal to players tired of classic slots. If you’re looking for a slot machine with a big jackpot and in game features, we recommend, Release The Kraken.
