The latest such game comes to us from Merkur Gaming, under the title Tesoro Del Amazonas.

Familiar idea

Fans of slots such as Gonzo’s Quest or Jungle Jim will immediately notice certain similarities in the outlay featured by Tesoro Del Amazonas.

The game’s main hero stands on the side of the reels, ready to accompany players on their adventure, all dressed up for the challenges ahead.

Transparent reels are set on the backdrop of a crystal blue river surrounded by green vegetation. Merkur games have never been particularly famous for their graphics, but this one actually looks pretty good, despite its cartoonish style.

The main hero is always ready to celebrate any big wins by firing his gun and cheering you on.

The design of the main character is somewhat peculiar, but players can make their own minds on that point. Some will certainly find it hilarious, while others might be annoyed.

Expanding wilds & two-tier bonus

In the base game, Tesoro Del Amazonas is all about wilds.

Unlike most slots, only one wild can land on the reels on a single spin.

However, when that happens, the wild will expand diagonally in all directions, covering four additional positions at most. Since this is a standard 5×3 game with 20 paylines, a wild in the middle can be quite useful.

Tesoro Del Amazonas has just one bonus feature, which is triggered by landing three treasure chests on the reels.

This will initiate the first round of free spins, which is exactly the same as the base game, with one important distinction.

All scatters that land during these initial 10 free spins count, because gathering ten of them takes players to the second level of the bonus.

On the second level, players are given additional 10 free spins (plus any they had left over from the first round) and all low-paying symbols are removed.

This means the bonus feature can be quite generous. It is also worth noting that the bonus feature comes with its own, separate set of high-paying symbols, which is quite rare.

The game has the RTP of 95.92%, which is just slightly below the 96% average found with a majority of new slots.

Where to play

As you could probably conclude, Tesoro Del Amazons slot doesn’t appear to show anything that hasn’t been done before, but the theme may appeal to many.

Also, the two-level bonus is definitely interesting and worth exploring.

The game should soon be available on online casinos featuring Merkur slots such as Mr Green Casino, Videoslots Casino, and Casumo.
