The Royals Slot Game Offers a Fun Slant on History
The Royals slot game is set in the middle of a courtyard of a medieval Castle, and there are the traditional battlements and towers, and many colourful banners waving around the perimeter. The whole tableau is set beneath a clear blue sky.
The Royals was developed and released by Novomatic in 2014. The Royals has five reels and twenty possible pay lines, which will give you twenty potential big wins. The symbols are all vivid and colourful, and there are some fruity symbols which represent the lower value symbols, purple plums and bright red cherries. The symbols next in value are a green number Ten, and a blue Jack. The Royals themselves are the red Queen and the King in royal purple. The symbol with the highest value is an overflowing bag of Gold Coins, which is the symbol that will win you the jackpot in this game. The Wild is the Jester, and this symbol cannot form a winning combination on its own, as its function is to replace any other on reels 3, 4 and 5 to form a winning sequence. A combination of three or more identical symbols appearing on any active pay line, reading from left to right, will give you a win.
The Royal Feature Is the Bonus Game
The game play in The Royals is simple and straight forward, and the betting range is very wide, which allows great lee way in placing wagers. There is an AutoPlay button to set if you wish.
There is no free spins round in The Royals, but there is another interesting feature. This is called the Royal Feature, and can be triggered randomly after any spin, whether a winning or losing game round. On any number of reels, one of the Royals will appear, either the Jester wild, or the King himself or the Queen, together with a small three reel set all prepared to spin. The reels are filled with 7s and Rhombuses. The mini reels will rotate, and if you manage to line up the lucky 7s, which are coloured in red or blue or yellow, you will then receive even more prizes. This mini game will continue until one or more of the small reels fall on the Rhombus icon. This bonus game in The Royals will pay off 40, 100, 200 or 500 overall bets.
The Gamble Feature Gives More Excitement
For some added excitement, The Royals allows players to try the Gamble feature in the game. After every winning spin, you can hit the Gamble button. You can attempt to guess correctly the colour of the next playing card, and if you guess correctly, your winnings will be doubled. You can try to predict the suit of the card as well, and that will quadruple your winnings if your guess is correct, but on the other hand, you do stand the chance of losing your winnings.
In spite of its lack of Scatters and free spins, The Royals is popular because of its simplicity and superior game play. These are complemented by the bright graphics, and the little bit of history with knights and bravery and treasure.
