With the Shining Treasure slot machine being based entirely upon the crown jewels, all of the symbol on the reels have been designed to look like they have been carved from crystals. The fruits are superb and have been perfectly carved to offer various shades of colour. You will find a golden crown, red 7, gold star, grapes, watermelons, lemons, oranges, cherries, plums and apples on the reels – it’s like a giant fruit bowl.
The game menu button that sits on the control panel allows you to view the paytable in great detail. All symbols are listed along with the amount you can win – toggle through the bets and you can see how much is on offer for each of your chosen bets. For example, minimum bets of 15 coins will show that the maximum jackpot is 2,500, but the maximum stakes of 450 offers a 62,500 jackpot.
The number 7 is considered to be lucky in many cultures, so the non-progressive jackpot can be found lurking behind this symbol. Trigger a payline full of the red 7s and you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank with a payout of up to 62,500.
Spin a payline full of the stars and you will receive a cash sum of up to 56,250.
Grapes and watermelons are the juiciest of the fruits, with both offering up to 10,000. Apples reward you with 7,500 whilst the remaining fruits offer 2,500.
Players can take advantage of wilds, scatters and a gamble feature within the slot game. The crown is your wild and as usual it will replace other symbols (except for the scatter) to help complete any paylines that may have otherwise been missed. The wild has no cash value and when they come into view, they will expand to cover the entire reel – additional wins can be received when this happens.
That twinkling star symbol is the scatter and when at least three fall into view, you’ll receive a cash prize.
You can decide to gamble any win on the reels for more in the double up feature. This potentially allows you to win up to 50x your total bet. Guess the correct suit or colour of the next card to be drawn at the dealers table to win. Gamble all your winnings or half, it’s up to you. Cash out at any time or go on for more, but it’s important to remember that one incorrect guess and it’s game over.
Our Thoughts on the Game
Shining Treasures may very well be a basic game to play, but the potential to win big is there. Big stakes or little stakes are welcome with plenty of wins falling on the reels. Despite its name, the only treasure to be had is the jackpot.
Casino Technology have designed this fruit machine to stand out from the competition, but with a lack of features it may not have the desired effect. We found the slot game to be of medium variance.
