As with any self-respecting adventure slash treasure hunt theme, the setting is somewhere tropical, laden with palms, ancient gems and mystical secrets. Vicky Ventura can’t seem to decide if it’s going for Aztec or Inca but I don’t think historical accuracy was the game developer’s main priority. The soundtrack, if you’re a ‘sound on’ kind of person, definitely leans toward a Native tribal theme, and is overlaid with some dramatic sound effects when you hit upon bonus features, of which there are plenty.
Personally, I enjoy the whole long forgotten temple, smoking incense and rock carvings vibe. It incites a certain level of mystique and excitement that’s missing with many slots. And let’s be honest, who hasn’t watched Tomb Raider and thought, ‘now there’s a career’.
Our heroine isn’t omnipresent – she doesn’t watch over every spin like you get with some slots. Vicky only appears when certain features are unlocked. This adds to the anticipation because once you catch a glimpse of her, you know you’re onto a winner. As we’ve come to expect with Red Tiger Gaming, the graphics are on point. Across the reels are the all important explorer safari hat that always seems so uncomfortable, gems and jewellery, binoculars, golden compasses and crystals of all shapes and sizes
