Lost Riches of El Dorado is a new casino slot from Hurricane Games and Stakelogic, in which we search for valuable treasures that this city is said to be full of. The legend of this golden city located in central America spread like wildfire in the early 1600s. Several tribes were known for their ceremonies that included large amounts of gold as well as diamonds, with the chief being covered in gold dust. This chief then became known as the gilded one, El Dorado, and at their ceremonies large amounts of gold were donated to their gods by throwing it into a lake. A belief of a great city filled with gold was coined, but this was never found. However, they did find one of the lakes into which large quantities of gold and precious stones had been thrown into, where the gold-thirsty Spaniards managed to empty large parts of the lake to scoop up most of its contents. Although great finds were made along the way, El Dorado was never found until Gonzo went out on a journey. We've previously seen Gonzo, among others, scoop up major treasures in the slot Gonzo's Quest and Gonzo's Gold, but this time it's the Indiana Jones-like adventurer's turn to visit this magical place. Let's dive into this slot and find out what you can expect to see during the spins.

What features are available in the slot Lost Riches of El Dorado?
The features are Wild Symbol, Cash Bonus, Free Spins, Expanding Symbols, Super Stake, Gamble and Bonus Buy.
The game's wild symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols, except for the expanding symbol. Landing 2 of these activates the Cash Bonus feature and landing 3 or more activates the Free Spins feature.
If you land 2 wild symbols, the Cash Bonus feature is activated. You will then have a special symbol selected and then each instance of this symbol will have a cash amount awarded to it. The total amount of cash awarded will then be awarded to the player.
If you land 3 or more scatter symbols, then the Free Spins feature is activated. You are then greeted with 10 free spins and depending on whether you landed 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols, an instant win of 2X, 20X or 200X the bet is awarded. You can then retrigger extra free spins during the bonus game. By landing 3 or more scatter symbols, you get 10 extra free spins, an instant win and the expanding symbol will be upgraded to the next symbol on the pay table.
When you activate the Free Spins feature, a special expanding symbol will be selected. You can choose to accept the assigned symbol or choose to shuffle to obtain a different symbol type. When you land the correct amount required to create a win with the selected special expanding symbol, they will expand to cover the entire reels. This allows for multiple winning combinations and the symbols do not need to be on adjacent reels to create a win.
You can choose to activate the Super Stake feature, by doubling your bet. This will not double the pay table, but it will land more wild scatter symbols on the reels, which increases the chances of activating the Free Spins feature. The extra payment made helps to fund a Super Stake feature, whereby activating it, you can take part in extra prizes.
When you create a win, you can choose to take part in the Gamble feature. You can then choose between guessing the right color or suit on a face down card, which doubles or quadruples your winnings if you guess correctly. If you guess wrong, the amount won is lost.
If you want to take advantage of the Free Spins feature right away, you can use the Bonus Buy feature. You pay 80X the bet and then the Bonus Game is activated.
In this slot we are truly part of an exciting adventure, where we go to Central America in search of El Dorado. It is a slot that is filled with lots of different features that make the game time very entertaining along the way. During the base game, the wild symbols help to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols. But if you land more than 1 of these at the same time, you can take advantage of other features. By landing 2 wild symbols, the Cash Bonus feature is activated which can deliver decent cash prizes and give an extra touch to the spins being made. But if you land 3 or more wild scatter symbols, the Free Spins feature is activated. You are then welcomed with 10 free spins and then a special expanding symbol is selected. If you are not satisfied with the first awarded symbol, you can choose to shuffle to get another one. This bonus game is just like previous “book of”-slots one has taken part in before, such as Book of Dead. Where you can create really big wins when the majority of symbols expand, but it is clearly a matter of taste when you are awarded a special expanding symbol as the lower paying symbols land more frequently but pay lower and vice versa with the higher paying symbols.
The RTP is in a perfectly acceptable size by default, but this can vary between operators and if the lower one is used, one's playing conditions drop considerably. Like many other games from Stakelogic, there is a high potential maximum win here as well. Putting aside the fact that the game's features and choice of theme have been used many times before, it's a slot that offers entertaining spins, where the expanding symbols are the key to the bigger wins. The gamble, bonus buy, and super stake features are a perfect addition to this slot, where they help to create an extra excitement to the spins. In its entirety, the game stats are good, and you can take part in some lovely thrilling moments, but it is not a groundbreaking slot we are taking part in here and the features have been seen on numerous occasions before.
Lost Riches of El Dorado is a slot where we get to take part of expanding symbols that can deliver huge wins if the right amount and symbol type lands.
