How to play the 40 Thieves video slot is a no brainer. Namely, once you hit the big button with a pointer located in the lower-left corner, you will activate all five reels that come with four rows each. Additionally, this 40-payline slot lets you adjust the size of the total bet from the main screen. The lowest amount that you can wager is €0.10 while the highest is €50. There are nine sizes of total bets to choose from.
Those of you who want to activate auto-spins should clock on the Auto Start button where they can choose the number of auto-spins and limits. The “+” button in the upper-right corner will lead you to the paytable, sound controls, and the help section.
As for the payouts, we will start by analyzing the regular symbols found here. This game features a paytable that includes eight regular symbols. Instead of playing card icons, the 40 Thieves slot uses playing card suits in different colors as low-paying regular symbols. So, if you get three, four, or five spades, hearts, diamonds, or clubs (you need three or more identical symbols on a line) on a single payline, you will win 8, 20, or 60 times your line bet.
Next, we have the high-paying unique symbols. You can get 12, 40, or 120 times the line bet by landing three, four, or five daggers or hookahs on a payline respectively. Thanks to the horse, you can win 20, 60, or 200 times the line bet. The most valuable regular symbol – the thief – pays 4, 40, 160, or 800 times your line bet for two, three, four, or five symbols like that on a line.
You can also win up to 8,000 times your line bet by making winning combos with scatter icons anywhere in view.
Truth be told, you can’t find too many 40 Thieves bonus features. The most attractive one is the free spins feature. To get access to the 40 Thieves free spins mode, you must wait to land three or more scatter icons (golden ornaments) anywhere on the reels. Three, four, or five scatter icons on the matrix will provide cash rewards as well as 10, 15, or 50 free spins respectively. During free spins, the thief acts as a wild icon. In other words, the thief will replace any regular symbol when he can help you complete a winning line.
This game has another wild icon – a decorative wild sign. It acts in the same way which means that it counts as any regular symbol. We should also mention that after any winning spin, players can choose to gamble their last win. They can choose from a ladder gamble feature and a card gamble feature. In the first feature, they can wait to see whether they will get more or less than they have won and collect the earnings at any time. The card game, on the other hand, lets you pick a color of a card and wait for the outcome to double (or lose) your last win.
The 40 Thieves RTP (Return to Player percentage) is 96.09%. This percentage goes slightly above the industry’s standard. It’s also worth mentioning that the developer has decided not to publish any information about the volatility of this game.
