Easy to Understand (10)
The game is easy to understand. The rules have been clearly explained. The payout table is self explanatory. Players are not likely to need the Help files provided.
Graphics & Sounds (8)
The audio and animations are under utilized in Tribal Treasure. The animation is restricted to a few symbols. There is no music in the base game. However whenever these effects are present they have been done well. The symbols have been constructed with an eye for detail.
Theme and Concept (8)
The theme of the native making a meal of the explorer has been conceived well through the symbols. The little animations and music available complement the theme. However the theme has not been displayed to its fullest. The use of high value cards instead of thematic symbols is a let down. There is no bonus game on the second screen, which usually complements the theme.
Game Features (8)
The game features are a mixed bag. The wild symbol does not act as a multiplier but offers the highest fixed jackpot. The scatter payouts are poor but the scatter symbol has been used in an innovative way to trigger free spins. The free spins payouts are multiplied by 5 but the spins cannot be re-triggered. There is the Gamble Feature but no bonus game on the second screen.
Betting Options (8)
Though all three betting options are available to the player, the overall betting range is very narrow. The line bet range varies from 0.01 to 2.00 and the total bet range varies from 0.01 to 50.00. This is because the maximum coin size is restricted to 0.10. Tribal Treasure may not be attractive for high rollers.
The 10,000 coins first jackpot is almost like a progressive jackpot. At maximum line bet it pays out 20,000 credits. The other jackpot payouts are very low making this slot game quite volatile. Unless players hit the big jackpot they will have to be satisfied with small payouts.
