The ancient secrets of Stone Henge are finally revealed in this Secret of the Stones mobile slot by NetEnt.
No one really knows what Stone Henge was used for. Some say sacrifice, others say it’s a very elaborate hoax by the ancient Druids.
But us slot gamers know the truth: The Secret of the Stones is that underneath each one lies pure treasures. The real secret is that now that you can play the ‘Max’ version, you can triple your wins.
The Secret of the Stones online slot has been around for a while, but it’s not till 2017 that we got it to play on Android and iPhones.
Instead, you get 25 paylines with wilds and scatters. That’s it. Simple.
Of course, if that was all there was to it, this would not exactly be one of NetEnt’s best casino games. The real secret lies in the free spins, which trigger relatively often – usually within 50 spins or so.
And each time they bring excitement that is hard to bear; namely because you know that each time you can get some really magical wins.
You’ll find the real difference is in the paytable between the normal version and the Secret of the Stones Max version – the 5 of a kind wins are significantly larger, and you notice it during the bonus games.
The fact the normal win is so huge is why this game has been popular for years. The fact you can now win over 2 million times your bet is the reason any experience gamblers need to try this game.
You start your free spins bonus with 10 free spins, but before you start spinning, you have to pick stones which hold secret prizes.
Mostly, if we are being honest, you generally get to play with a 2x or 3x multiplier, on around 14 to 18 free spins. That’s a good average. Obviously, if you play the max version, you may get a bigger multiplier but then nothing or everything.
But every once in a while, you catch expanded wild reels, up to 8x multipliers, and lots of extra wild symbols that you know will send your bank account to Celtic heaven. We got over 800x your bet in the MAX version, so we know what we will be playing.
That said, if you want to be greeted by a jollier old man with a beard, the Secrets of Christmas slot is the exact same game but more festive.

Random Wilds: The Druid is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols to create wins, except the scatters.
Scatters and Free Spins Bonus: The oak tree is the scatter symbol and triggers 10 free spins when you get 3 or more on screen.
However, you'll then get to pick from 20 sets of stones. If you triggered the free spins with 3 scatters you'll get 3 picks, 4 scatters 4 picks and 5 scatters 5 picks.
The extras you can win are:
We should point out that getting more than 3 scatters, or 3 picks, is fairly difficult, but incredibly rewarding.
When NetEnt first launched this Celtic slot online, it was innovative and different. When they launched it with the Max version, it has become a must play.
And sure, now you can get many different variations with similar free spin features (the wonderful Golden Fish Tank by Yggdrasil is one of them), yet somehow this original hasn't lost its charm and grown better and wiser with age.
That's because the Secret of the Stones slot on mobile has a theme and bonus games that are timeless, and now the ability to give you 2,250,000 x your bet.
Well worth a spin, if you haven't already played this at online casinos.
