Playtech Tinderbox Treasures Video Slot Review


Where to Play


Enter a magical fantasy world in Tinderbox Treasures. It’s a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Playtech that comes with re-spins with wild multipliers of 2x and then 3x. Look out too for the bonus round that awards at least 10 free spins with wild boosts of up to 5x. Stakes start at 25p per spin, rising to a whopping £1,250.

The design here harks back to the middle ages – the reels are set against a cellar backdrop that’s filled with creepy looking skulls and plenty of coins. You’ll see lower value playing cards spinning around the reels alongside a dim looking executioner, a cross-eyed old woman, the king and his princess. The best paying symbol is the soldier who’ll get you up to 10 times your bet if you land a 5-symbol combination.

There are 3 wilds on offer in Tinderbox Treasure and these can hit on the middle 3 reels only. Land a copper dog wild and you’ll play the Dog Wild Re-Spin feature where you’ll get a free re-spin. On that re-spin, silver dog wilds are brought into play – these are 2-symbol high wilds that double payouts when they form part of a winning line.

Land 1 of these silver dog wilds in full and another re-spin is added, this time with 3-high gold dog wilds in play. These gold wilds treble payouts when they form part of a winner.

As well as the wild re-spins, there’s a Free Games feature on offer here – it can be played by landing 3 scatters on the central 3 reels on the same spin. An initial haul of 10 free spins is on offer here, complete with wilds that spin in stacked formation and treble payouts.

Before the free spins begin, enter the vault and choose a door – you could find an extra 5 free spins, a booster that sends wild multipliers from 3x up to 5x or stacked scatters. Land a Tinderbox and you’ll get all 3 of the extra goodies.

Every time a scatter lands, it’s collected in a meter above the reels and awards a Dog Spin in the Dog Spins feature – these are played after the main set of free spins has finished. Each Dog Spin includes a dog wild that can be 1, 2 or 3 symbols high.

Tinderbox Treasures is a lovely looking game. The cartoon visuals are well crafted and the orchestral soundtrack is a perfect match. The dog wild re-spins, complete with multipliers liven up the base game. The best opportunities come when you trigger the Free Games feature though.

If you’re lucky enough to find a Tinderbox from your picks then this video slot can certainly live up to its name and deliver plenty of treasure. If dogs are your thing, Diamond Dogs by NetEnt is an oldie but a goodie. If you like other pets, I recommend you play Playtech’s Ace Ventura Pet Detective.
