Graphics and Theme
The graphics in this game are detailed, luxurious and pleasing on the eye. The reels are set in front of the Goblin’s vault. They are encased in a detailed metal border made up of several cogs and metal doors. There are two treasures chest filled with sparkling gold that sit either side of the reels. Above the reels, on either side of your screen, you can see two green stained-glass windows that create a green hue across some of your screen. The symbols add some colour with their detailed depiction of animated goblin characters.
The soundtrack is very relaxing and wouldn’t sound out of place in one of the earlier Harry Potter films, which could be where Kalamba got their inspiration from. If you’re familiar with Gringotts bank, you will know what I mean. The instruments used to make the soundtrack include violins, a piano, a harp and a glockenspiel. When you hit spin, the reels set off with a quiet clicking noise. They then spin and come to a stop silently. You’ll hear noise again when you land special symbols and winning combinations.
The low paying symbols are made up of playing card symbols nine, 10, jack, queen, king and ace. Five of a kind aces are worth a maximum of £90 when you’re betting the maximum. The high paying symbols include a set of keys, weighing scales, a green goblin, a red goblin and a gold goblin. The gold goblin is the most valuable symbols worth £200 for five of a kind when betting the maximum.
There are three collection symbols which are green, red and blue gemstones. The game also has a treasure chest wild symbol and a free spins scatter symbol.
Collection Spins game modifiers
There are three collection spin games that are triggered when you collect 20 of the corresponding collection gemstones.
Scatter-split – Green gemstones
A random symbol is selected at the start of the collection spin bonus round. It will appear in a random number of positions across the reels on your next spin. The scatter-spilt symbols can be worth two or three symbols depending on your luck.
Paired reels – Red gemstones
At the beginning of the collection spins round, a random number of reels are selected to show matching symbols which helps you to create multiple big win combos.
Expand n’ Lock – Blue gemstones
At the beginning of the collection spins, a symbol will be randomly chosen. The game will then show you how many instances of this symbol will appear on the next spin and fix them into place. Up to 10 of the same symbols can appear on your next spin on the reels.
When three free spins scatter symbols land anywhere on your reels, you will trigger the free spins round. As an extra bonus, three free spins symbols will pay 2x your stake which is paid before you start the bonus round. During the free spin round, each additional free spins symbol that you land will award you with an additional free spin.
Before you start, you will need to choose one of three collection spin feature games to be played with your free spins.
- Scatter-spilt = 10 free spins
- Paired reels = seven free spins
- Expand n’ Lock = eight free spins
