Slot developers seem to love creating slots about ancient civilisations. There are countless games set in Ancient Egypt, South America and even the Romans. There are very few however which are based on the Ancient people of North America. Totem Treasures is one such slot, and developer IGT have delved into the North American culture to produce a slot that is filled with Native American imagery.
Totem Treasures has the usual five reels and twenty paylines. It has not only a standing jackpot of 10 000 coins, but a progressive one too that increases all the time until it is won, and then it resets. All twenty of the paylines in Totem Treasures are optional, and players can bet from 0.01 up to 20. This means that if you are betting the maximum amount and you get the top bet multiplier of 500x, you will receive the games standing jackpot of 10 000 coins.
The graphics in Totem Treasures are very detailed. Behind the reels can be seen a grassland and blue sky, but the reels themselves take centre stage. These are very intricate, with the edging being done to look like wooden totem poles draped with feathers and carved with patterns. The buttons at the bottom of the screen are not plain either, and have been done in different colours and authentic patterns.
Native American Theme
Totem Poles are a Native American charm used to represent their gods. They are usually made out of an entire tree trunk, and are intricately carved with figures of animals, birds and patterns. Totem Treasures pays homage to the Native American culture by including a number of their iconic items, such as totem poles and dream catchers. Not all of the symbols in Totem Treasures are theme based; the bottom ones are form a deck of playing cards. These have been made to look like they are carved from wood, but fall a bit short compared to all of the other design work in the slot. The higher value symbols are theme based and include a dream catcher, a feather headdress and a pair of tomahawks.
Totem Treasures Special Features
The wild rider is the Wild symbol, and can take the place of any other symbols except for the other wild symbol the Totem Pole. The Totem Pole will appear stacked on reels one, three and five, and will grant you with ten free spins that can be retriggered. The totem pole Wild can replace all symbols in the game, including the Wild Rider.
The second special symbol is a glowing pot of gold. This is your ticket to the progressive jackpot online pokies NZ. Three of these scatters anywhere on the reels will activate a second screen bonus game that contains the progressive jackpot. This is a pretty basic wheel of fortune type game where a tomahawk handle will spin in a circle eventually landing on a particular coloured jewel. Each jewel contains a certain prize; blue sapphires offer 30x the total bet value, green emeralds give 60x, red rubies pay 100x and white diamonds offer 250x. The golden pot symbol on the wheel is the icon that grants you the progressive jackpot.
