Amazon Adventure is set in a backdrop of a night time scene in the Amazon rain forest, with the huge green leaves of tall trees displayed against a dark blue sky filled with stars. There is a pay table on the left of the screen, and it blinks to show the value of each symbol.
The standard playing cards from ten to the ace form the lower value symbols, and they are designed to resemble brightly coloured stones. There is a mid value set of symbols, and these are all represented by the lucky number 7, and also appear in different colours, some of them adorned in vines or some leafy growth.
This game by Amaya Gaming has an interesting format, fairly similar to the old time arcade games and video slots. There are four reels and ten pay lines, and the symbols are set in a 4×4 grid, and you spin these reels in a random different way. The symbols can be seen on the pay table, and five cartoon like Amazon creatures represent the high paying symbols. You will see a yellow spotted Ladybug with the lowest value of five, and next in value comes a bright blue Tree Frog and a turquoise Toucan. The second highest valued symbol is the Jaguar, and the symbol with the highest value is the purple Snake. There are 7s in various colours, red, yellow and green.
Placing Your Bet
Before the game begins here, you have to decide on the coin value of the bet you want to place, and the number of coins to be used per pay line. The number of pay lines is fixed at ten. The top jackpot that can be won in Amazon Adventure is 2500 times your line wager, so it is best to place the biggest bet that you can. This top jackpot can be won if you find four Snake symbols on four positions of an active pay line.
Two Bonus Maps
On the side of the screen you will see two maps, called Bonus 1 and Bonus 2. If a bonus symbol appears on the reels, you can turn to the map. If the goal of that particular adventure is reached on the map, you win a prize. Bonus 1 and 2 are represented as two islands, one green and one brown. The Bonus 1 symbol is a Waterfall that becomes anima ted when it forms part of a winning combination. Each time you land on the island you move one spot further. The same will happen on the Map marked Bonus 2. This symbols is an erupting Volcano. Once your explorer has reached each stop of the path in the maps, and reaches either the Waterfall or the Volcano, a good cash prize is paid out.
All 7s will Also Give Prizes
Amazon Adventure also gives prizes for any of the 7 symbols appearing on the screen, as long as there are at least five of them. The maximum prize for the 7s, is 2500 coins, and that is give for twelve to sixteen 7 symbols appearing. The number 7 symbols also serve as Scatters, and will pay out an amount ranging from 10 to 12,500 coins, which you will see in the pay table left of the screen. There is no Wild symbol, and no bonus symbols apart from the two Maps.
Pay lines in Amazon Adventure can be vertical, horizontal or diagonal, and they pay in either direction, depending on which one is the highest.
