|Queen of the Castle
If you are a huge fan of all things medieval and epic, then Queen of the Castle, released in May 2018 by NextGen gaming is the slot for you. The game offers you 576 ways to win and an impressive RTP of 96.5% and plenty of bonuses plus a free spins feature.
Queen of the Castle bears all the typical features you would expect the people from back in the day used; mystery chests, thrones, coin bags, gems, and dogs; and of course a monarchy complete with a king and Queen. The reels are cast against a backdrop of hills and lakes; just the way nature was in the medieval era. The graphics are rather simple for a NextGen gaming slot, and also contains the other higher level card symbols.
Symbols and bonuses to look out for
The best thing about this slot is how NextGen have loaded it up with plenty of bonuses to make gameplay more thrilling and lucrative; locked reels, scatter payouts, wilds, free spins, nudges, and mystery prizes are some of the interesting features to look out for.
To get a win on this slot, all you need is to land three or more similar symbols on your reels from the left side. The card symbols, as expected, will offer the lowest returns with 4, 5, and 6 coins when they land on reels 3, 4 and 5 from the left. Green and purple gems will return 5, 6, and 7 coins, and the highest paying symbols, the throne, bag of gold coins, dog, and game logo will return anywhere between 9 and 20 coins. These may seem small, but they are amplified by the presence of the other bonuses. Besides, it is possible to land multiple winning combinations in a single spin!
The Queen is the wild symbol, and she can stack herself on the reels she lands on to complete a winning combination where there are gaps. However, she cannot substitute for any symbols.
Another interesting feature to look out for is the Locked reels feature which can occur on any of your reels. Vines will grow on the middle reels and spin together with matching symbols. If you have a similar symbol on reel 1, then you get a special 4-symbol winning combination.
Mystery chest wins
Just like in the olden days, the chests in this slot are packed with fantastic riches. If you land the red chests on reel 1 on the left side or reel 5 on the right, they will trigger a transformation of the lower-paying card symbols on the reels to higher paying ones for a combination with a better payout. Upon landing on all positions 5 of the reels, the purple mystery chest will transform all the lower paying symbols into the higher paying ones (the bag of coins, dog, banner, or throne).
The shield scatter is associated with the free spins, and landing 3 or more will give you 14 free spins.
You can readily play Queen of the Castle slot on your PC or mobile device. This game may be fully optimized for mobile, but some of the graphics quality is lost.
Queen of the Castle is a fantastic game for fans of all things castles and epic; the graphics may be a bit plain, but overall the bonuses and free spins offer players a great opportunity to win big.
