This beautifully designed slot game from Just For The Win is called Ivory Citadel and it takes inspiration from the far east. The theme has an Indiana Jones feel to it, with lots of stone making up the reels and the citadel itself visible in the background. It offers interesting features and a great RTP, but where are the treasures hidden and are you brave enough to take them home?
Ivory Citadel is a 5-reel, 20 fixed pay line slot that offers an RTP of 96.03% to players. The reels spin transparently against a backdrop of stunning mountainside scenery, with the citadel nestled on top. There are even flowing waterfalls on either side, which gives the game a pretty relaxed feeling.
Symbols are a mix of stone carvings and playing card symbols, which have been given a very distinct makeover for the game. Higher value symbols are the Ivory Citadel logo, the red tiger, purple bull and green snake carvings. Lower value symbols are the A, K, Q and J which are all designed to look like they are carved from stone, just like the animal symbols. Whilst the reels are in play there is a rather epic sounding music track playing along. Almost as if you have entered a movie and are hitting a vital moment. The kind of heart pounding music that really gives things an edge.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 10p per spin and can be increased up to £100 per spin. If you wish to adjust your bet, click on the casino chip symbol and use the arrows above and below the bet reel to change your bet up or down. After you settle on the final amount you can hit the spin button to return to the game and continue to play at the new amount.
Wild Symbol – The wild symbol in Ivory Citadel is simply a gold and purple shield with the word wild emblazoned across the middle. It can land anywhere on the reels and will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and bonus.
Scatter Symbol – A green and gold elephant carving is your scatter symbol in Ivory Citadel, and it can land anywhere on the reels. Land three, four or five of these anywhere in view to trigger the bonus spins feature.
Bonus Symbol – Ivory Citadel has an extra special symbol which is the golden question mark. It will appear at random during either the base game or the bonus spins and will trigger a quick-fire feature that is sure to please. The question mark symbol can transform into any other symbol in the game except the scatter.
Question Mark Feature – At any point during the base or bonus game a question mark symbol can land. When it does it will instantly transform itself and all other question mark symbols showing, into matching symbols. If the odds are in your favour it could turn all instances of the question mark into wild symbols instead!
Bonus Spins Feature – Land yourself three or more of the elephant scatter symbol anywhere on the reels and you will enter the bonus spins feature. Here you will be allocated a number of spins, which depend on how many scatters were on the reels when it activated.
- 3x scatter symbols in view awards x8 bonus spins,
- 4x scatter symbols in view awards x10 bonus spins,
- 5x scatter symbols in view awards x12 bonus spins.
During the bonus spins feature if you land one or more question mark symbols on the reels, they will transform into a standard symbol. However, they also become a sticky symbol, meaning that once it has transformed it will remain in place for the rest of the spins. If you manage to land a full reel of question mark symbols on a single spin, that whole reel will transform into wilds and remain that way for the rest of the spins! There is no way to retrigger the round, so once all spins have been played you will be returned to the main game.
Ivory Citadel is hugely popular, and we can see why, with its lush graphics, booming music and brilliant bonus game; what’s not to love? Whether you are playing for the main game wins or holding out for the bonus feature, there is something in Ivory Citadel for everyone to enjoy. The main game wins are a nice variation from low to high end on the pay table, but once the bonus feature hits that’s where the bigger wins can be found. Unfortunately, it takes a little while for that bonus game to trigger, but once it does and you start landing those sticky symbols and sticky wilds, it makes it all worthwhile.
