Play ‘n GO’s Pearls of India is an online slots game that follows adventurer Rich Wilde on a treasure hunt through the lost palaces and temples of the captivating South Asian subcontinent.
The main character in this video slot with five reels and 20 paylines first made an appearance in the Aztec Idols video slot. In this game, his adventures are played out on reels that feature wild, scatter, and bonus symbols among the lower and higher value symbols, as well as in free spins rounds and other online casino bonus UK games.
A Look at the Reel Symbols
Set in virtual stone casings, the reel symbols in Pearls of India are a mix of exquisitely detailed higher value and bonus symbols, and brightly coloured playing card symbols. The reels themselves are set against a backdrop of a temple in the mountains.
The symbols include silver and gold statues of deities including Ganesh, a bull, a hand, a face, as well as Rich Wilde, a temple, and a pearl, and the card symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A. As the symbols land in place on the reels, the stone casings match up to form what look like temple columns.
Pearls of India features cascading reel symbols. This means that, when symbols form a winning combination on a payline, they will disappear, and more symbols will cascade into place. These could also form winning combinations, which means players could win more than once on the same spin.
Wild Symbol for Winning Combinations
Ruggedly handsome Rich Wilde is the wild symbol in this online slots game.
This symbol can help form winning combinations when it appears on the reels. It does this by substituting for the other symbols. However, this symbol will not substitute for the scatter or bonus symbol.
Pearls for Free Spins
The pearl reel symbol is the scatter in Pearls of India online slots, and when three of these appear on the first, third, and fifth reels, the game’s free spins round will be triggered. This round sees players given 10 free spins with whatever multiplier the player has in the base game.
Not only does the pearl symbol act as a second wild symbol during this round, it can also retrigger the free spins round.
This happens if players collect five pearl symbols during the free spins game. Any cascading wins during this round could also see multipliers doubled.
Temple Bonus Game
The Pearls of India online slots Temple bonus game is triggered by the temple bonus symbol on the reels. When a temple symbol lands on the reels, it is counted, and once players have received 25 of these symbols, the bonus game will be activated.
Players will be presented with a choice of three temple features, of which one must be selected for the bonus game. The three options are the Statue of Vishnu, the Wheel of Brahma, and the Wall of Shiva.
The first game requires players to select pearls from the statue’s various hands for prizes. The game continues until players select a pearl that conceals no prize. The second game requires players to spin a symbol-laden stone wheel for prizes. The third game presents players with a tiled wall. In this Pearls of India bonus game, players need to select tiles for prizes, beginning at the bottom of the wall. This game continues until players find a wild beast.
