Slot OverviewCryptocurrencies and Bitcoin in particular are not the most popular slot themes. Even now, when cryptocurrency is at its peak, such slots are rare. Of the recent ones, only NFT Megaways come to mind. In 2015, when Satoshi’s Secret slot was released, most gamblers did not know what Bitcoin was, let alone its creator. In those distant times, the main cryptocurrency was only worth some $300. Therefore, it is difficult to explain the choice of this particular theme by the developer. Most likely someone in Endorphina‘s leadership was a crypto enthusiast. And of course, the status of the world’s first Bitcoin-themed slot also played a role. But I hasten to clarify that these are just speculations of the author of this text. Be that as it may, Endorphina did not bet only on the unusual theme of the slot. A lot of work has been done on the gameplay and game mechanics. This slot can still surprise you if for some reason you missed it at the start. Satoshi’s Secret is a 6×3 video slot with 20 paylines. The number of paylines can be changed from 1 to 20 which will affect your current bet. The volatility in the game is MED and RTP is 96.07%. The max possible win is unclear but for 6 highest-paying symbols, you will get an x250 multiplier.
Slot DesignDespite the slot’s name Bitcoin is not the main game theme. To be completely honest, only 2 symbols and the name of the game itself are related to cryptocurrencies. The rest of the design of the game belongs more to the hacking theme. The design of the game is dominated by green, which is very reminiscent of The Matrix. This is especially felt on the world map, which is depicted in the background, where all continents are covered with green symbols from the Matrix. Among the symbols, in addition to ordinary letters, if there are also currency symbols and a mysterious hacker. I refuse to call him Satoshi, as during the game he breaks into and steals money from other people’s bank accounts.
Slot FeaturesIn Satoshi’s Secret, players have access to truly unique features. There are no Free Spins in the game, but instead of them, the players will be entertained by the Trading Bonus and QWERTY Bonus. The Trading Bonus is triggered by landing 4 bonus symbols that can appear on 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels. The bonus game takes place on a 3×3 game field. Before starting a round, you need to select a dollar, euro, or pound symbol and determine where their price will go, down or up. After the start of the round, you cannot change the strategy. The symbols you have selected have points: +1, +2, -1, -2. When symbols are landed, the points are summed up. A negative-sum means that the price is going down, a positive-sum means that it is up. Whether the round will be winning for you depends on whether you predicted a rise or fall in price before the start of the game. If the outcome is successful for you, you will receive a win of x3. The game continues automatically until you run out of money. The bonus round can be manually stopped at any time and the winnings can be collected. Every time when 3 Bitcoin symbols fall out, you get a Safe Profit, which will stay with you even if the balance reaches zero. Another slot feature is called QWERTY Bonus. The name is unusual, isn’t it? And all because to trigger this feature, you need to land these first 6 letters of the keyboard. This is a kind of password that gives you access to the banking system, where you are asked to hack other people’s accounts and take their money. All you need to do is select an account from the list provided. The higher his level of protection, the more you will receive a reward. But when such accounts are hacked, there is a higher chance of being caught, this can happen at any time and the bonus game will be over. The rewards for all successfully hacked accounts will remain with you. The game also has a Gamble feature. You can risk any winnings and double them if you choose the card which will beat the dealer’s card. You can double your winnings up to 10 times.
