Designed with a sense of detail and spectacle by the hard-working team of Playtech, Thinderbox Treasures transports the player to the depths of a dark forest, where the branches are ornamented with heavy chains and locks and the soil is covered with various kinds of treasure, mostly piles of gold coins. The game has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines. The gameplay incudes numerous profitable symbols, 4 wild symbols, a single scatter one and several great bonus features.
All the paying symbols in the game have 3 winning combinations from 3 to 5 matching symbols. There are 2 types of symbols – High Wins and Low Wins ones. The High Wins symbols are various colorful characters, while the Low Wins ones are the usual card letters and numbers. The best-paying High Wins symbols are two gentlemen symbols – one of them being an ordinary member of the upper-class with a shiny suit and a hat and the other being a police officer. Both of them pay 10, 50 and 250 coins. The brunette lady with the tiny crown on her head (some kind of a queen) as well as the gentleman with the crown on his head (probably a king) grant 5, 25 and 100 coins. The crazy looking old man with the staff and the assassin deliver 5, 15 and 75 coins. As far as the Low Wins symbols are concerned, the Ace pays 4, 10 and 50 coins, the King and the Queen – 3, 7 and 25 coins and the Jack and the 10 – 2, 5 and 15 coins.
There are 4 different wild symbols in the game – the special Free Spins wild, the Copper Wild, which acts as a wild during normal spins and two other wilds – the Silver and the Gold one, which appear during the special Respin bonus feature. All the wilds appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and can replace the rest of the symbols in the game with the exception of the scatter in order to create winning combinations. The scatter of the game is the Tinderbox. It can make an appearance on the second, the third and fourth reel and is also responsible for the activation of the free spins round.
When the scatter appears on all 3 of its possible positions, 10 free spins will be awarded. The Tinderbox bonus screen will then be revealed and present the player with 3 doors or 3 choices before the start of the free spins. If there is a tinderbox on the other end of a selected door as many as 3 of the following prizes will awarded throughout the free spins – stacked scatter symbols, 5 additional free spins or a wild multiplier that can increase earnings up to 5 times. Special wild symbols will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 during free spins and will be multiplying by 3 the earnings made during a spin. Furthermore, for every scatter that appears on the reels during free spins, the gambler will receive a single Dog respin, which will include the special Dog wild symbols.
The so-called Dog Wild Re-Spins can be activated when the Copper wild shows up on the reels in the base game. When that happens, the reels will spin for free and the Silver wild will be able to appear on the reels, potentially increasing the earnings made from the spin 2 times. When the Silver wild shows up it will cover 2 positions from the reels. If a Silver Wild fully covers the reel, the reels will be again respun but this time the Gold wild will be able to make an appearance and it covers 3 positions on the reels as well as providing a multiplier of 3 that increases the spin’s earnings.
Tinderbox Treasures Slots is a stylishly atmospheric game with an extremely rich gameplay, which is not simply entertaining but it also provides numerous opportunities for huge prizes through its spectacularly effective symbols and its two terrific bonus features.
