About the Developers

Based in Stockholm, Elk Studios put a lot of passion into the games they create, and really take time to develop their characters and storylines. They also use statistical modelling (basically, advanced math) to make sure their creations are slick and run the best they can.

Some of their games include Lake’s Five and keep an eye out for the upcoming game, Birthday.

About the Game

Hidden is a 5 reel slot game with 178 ways to win and the chance to nab up to 2,150 times your stake if you’re lucky enough! Bets can be placed between 20p and £100 a spin.

Visually, the game is bright and in keeping with the storyline of some desert explorers. With golds, a looming pyramid under blue skies in the background and some fun graphics, including a rather evil-looking camel, the game certainly leaves us in no doubt as to the location or story.

Symbols range from the letters and numbers found in a deck of cards, through to a troupe of explorers and things associated with Egypt such as the Sphinx and camels. The lowest paying symbols are the letters and numbers, paying out between 60 coins and 120 coins for 5 of a kind. The camel and the Sphinx are the next highest with the explorers paying between 500 and 1000 coins for 5 of a kind.

Some of the game’s main features include:

  • WILD – this will replace all other symbols except for the scatter.
  • FLASHBACK RESPINS – keep an eye out for this one as it can be randomly triggered. The name of this feature relates to it taking you back to the days of Ancient Egypt, a touch of nostalgia. On reels 1,2 and 3, sticky wild symbols will appear, and you will get 3 respins.
  • TREASURE ROOM FREE SPINS – triggered by 3 of the scatters (the very apt magnifying glass), you will be granted 5 respins and an expanding symbol is chosen at random from those on the reel. That’s not all – this expanding symbol will take up 2x2, and then another 2x2 expanding symbol will drop down in the place of other symbols on the reels. You can also bag some more free spins when the scatter appears again; the more scatters, the more free spins.

The Verdict

Hidden is a game that is very easy-going on the eye, with a lot of time and care invested into the reel’s characters and backstory. The winnings are decent and there are plenty of chances to win. It may not be the most original in its theme and there isn’t much in the way of making it stand out, but if does offer some good bonus features which makes for a fun and rewarding game.
