Wine Treasury is a slot machine revolving around winemaking. If life in the wine yard seems appealing to you, you might want to give this slot a try. Wine bottles can, of course, show up on the reels, alongside barrels, cheese, a snail holding a grape, and a frog holding a grape. There is also a smiling woman who is harvesting grapes.
Wine Treasury is a 5-reel slot with 20-pay lines from the Latvian game developer DLV. Among the special features, we find the ability to collect bunches of grapes to claim win multipliers and free spins.
The graphics aren’t ground-breaking in any way, and you can definitely feel that this slot has been around for quite a few years now.
This game can be hard to find outside the Baltic and Scandinavian market. I hope more casinos will add this game and will keep my eyes open for it in LeoVegas and CasinoEuro. Two casinos that are usually among the first to feature games from new developers.
You decide how many pay lines to activate, from just 1 to all 20 of them.
The smallest possible wager is £0.01.
The largest possible wager is £50.
The smiling woman is a wild symbol and can substitute for any regular symbol to help you form a winning combination. She can also pay out money in her own right: if she lands on reels #1 and #2 simultaneously across an active payline she pays 10x the line stake. Even more wild symbols lining up correctly will produce bigger wins, up to 10,000x the line stake.
The barrel is a scatter symbol. If you get three barrels, you win 15x the line stake. Four barrels pay out 90x the line stake, and five barrels are worth 1,500x the line stake.
Barrel free spins
When barrels trigger a coin win, they also give you 13 free spins. During the free spins, you can collect special bunches of grapes. If you get all of the red, green and purple bunches before the free spins round is over, you will be awarded 7 additional free spins. This can repeat over and over again.
When you have won something playing Wine Treasury, you can elect to risk the win in a game of double-or-nothing. Playing this side game is not mandatory!
When you play double-or-nothing, your job is to correctly guess the color of a hidden card. If you guess right, your win is doubled. If you’re wrong, you lose the money. After each doubling, you can keep in playing double-or-nothing if you want to.
If you like wine-themed slots, we also recommend In Vino from SGS. This game is set in a wine cellar and the reels are adorned with bottles, barrels, glasses, corkscrews, and ice-buckets.
Trivia: Expensive wine
Wine can really be a treasure, and there are many examples of wines fetching a pretty penny at wine auctions. In the spring of 2019, a wine collection auctioned off by Sotheby’s in Hong Kong sold for $29.8 million. It was a 17,000-bottle collection spanning nearly five decades. The sale set a new record for the highest value private wine collection ever sold at public auction. The previous record was held by Bill Koch’s 20,000-bottle collection, which sold for nearly $22 million at an auction in New York in 2016.
Another example of pricey wine is from the year before when a 12-bottle case of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’s 1986 Montrachet sold for the equivalent £96,000 at an auction held by Cristie’s in London. At the same auction, someone bought a three magnum lot of 1961 Château Latour for £55,200. The Latour was a part of a larger collection of old and rare vintages consigned by the Malbec family. In total, that collection – consisting purely of wine from the Pauillac estate – brought in £445,824.
