Enigma is a video slot which Viaden proclaim as love themed, we’d argue it was more Indiana Jones orientated with the snakes, guns and jewels involved. The slot can play up to 9 paylines which include the chance to win free games and benefit from wild wins. As with other slots this one offers good value for money with an impressive 10,000 coin jackpot.
Enigma houses its five reels between two middle-eastern ladies with piles of gold beneath and a huge king cobra above. Each of the buttons has been designed with a carved stone effect, each of which is located below the slot.
The adventure theme continues on the reels with various artifacts and characters mixed in with gold tipped 10, J, Q, K and A icons. At some point you will spot a revolver, jeep, tiger, temple and a character who looks suspiciously like Indiana Jones.
Each win produces visual and audio cues to show how much has been won and on what line. This is different from other slots and is much clearer than the traditional method of marking wins.
Gamblers can select from a number of bets ranging from 0.10 to $4.50 by selecting one to nine paylines and coin denominations beginning at 0.10. Viaden has made it very simple to configure by including both + and - buttons to control each of these two options.
They’ve also added an automatic spin button which presents various options including number of spins, speed, whether to stop for wins and ways to manage spins based on remaining funds.
Tigers are majestic creatures which will be even more appreciated by Enigma players because the Tiger wild icon can substitute for all remaining icons barring the bonus scatter. This has the handy benefit of creating more winning opportunities which would have otherwise been impossible.
Three or greater Cobra bonus scatters will award free spins. Three awards 8 free spins, four awards 15 free spins and five awards 20 free spins. These symbols also award a multiple of players total bets when two or more appear simultaneously.
Each win lights up the gamble button (bottom right) which tempts players to double up their win by guessing the correct card color. The ultra adventurous can quadruple their winnings if they correctly choose the next cards suit.
Enigma has taken an unorthodox theme to create an enjoyable video slot. It may not possess the large number of features seen on other slots but the wild and free spins are a welcome additions. Oh and don’t forget the 10,000 coin jackpot either, it’s capable of paying out $5,000 when wagering 0.50. That’s not bad at all!
