The reels here are set against the Amazonian rainforest backdrop. Joining the A to 10 symbols are necklaces and statues. The best standard symbol is the gold plate which offers 20 times your stake if you land 5 on a line. The mysterious Amazon woman is the wild - she replaces all other symbols and offers payouts of up to 40 times your stake per payline.
Land 3 or more scatters on the same spin and to randomly trigger 1 of the 3 following bonus features:
Amazonia Free Games feature – with 10 free spins awarded, you’ll have the pick of 3 modifier extras here. You can choose from an expanding wild on reel 3 with wild wins multiplied by 5x, expanding wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 with wild wins doubled or expanding wilds on all 5 reels. You can also retrigger to give you 20 free spins in total.
Wheel of Amazonia feature - this is a spin the wheel bonus. Depending on where the pointer lands, you can win prizes of up to 35 times your stake or 1 of the 3 jackpot prizes. If you land a spin again, the payout on the second wheel spin is doubled.
Grid of Amazonia feature - in this pick me round, you’ll be offered a selection of boxes behind which are prizes of up to 5 times your total stake. Look out for the special Jackpot Idol symbols which can appear in each of the 3 bonus features. They in turn can deliver 1 of the Minor, Major or Mega Jackpots. The latter will be worth at least £1 million!
This isn’t the best game you’ll see as far as design goes. The visuals are certainly bright and colourful but don’t quite have the clarity of some developers. The range of features is a classic one. You’ll have seen the free spins, pick me rounds and wheel bonuses in plenty of other games.
They combine to entertaining effect here as there’s a whopping 25,000 times your stake to be won with the 5x multiplier in the Amazonia Free Games feature. Add the 3 progressive bonuses into the mix and Amazon Idol Million Maker becomes a very playable slot game and certainly worth a spin. If you like great bonus features, big win potential and progressive jackpots, Medusa II Jackpots, by NextGen Gaming, is strongly recommended.
