The first thing that we were impressed by in this slot game was the selection of graphics. And then the base gameplay. However, the very best of its features come from the special extras that the game incorporates. The gauntlet icon presents you with the wild of this game. This one stands in for all other icons on the reels in order to form a winning combination. Five of them coming in to view on a winning bet line will reward you with a maximum return of 1,000 times your in-play bet.
What you’ll get to see on the reels alongside the basics are three ‘Throne’ positions. These sections lay in the middle of reels one, three and five. There are three bonus icons that can land in these areas in order to unlock special feature rounds. They come in the form of the Queen, the Barbarian and the Monk.
If the queen icon shows up in the throne section of the first reel, you will unlock The Queen Reel. A random number of magical hearts come into play on the reel, where they will land and reveal a mystery symbol. The queen will also substitute for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination. Should the Monk icon come into the Throne area on reel three, the Monk Reel starts. A random number of holy wilds are added to the reel where any of the monk icons are. These then expand to a full length Holy Wild. Finally, the Barbarian icon coming into view on reel five in the Throne area unlocks the Barbarian Reel. This sees a random number of colossal Barbarian wilds come into view on the reels. Any Barbarian icon which lands in view will act as a colossal wild.
If you manage to bring each of the special bonus icons into view in the relevant Throne sections, the Battle Bonus round will begin. You need to pick one of the eight shields that come into view. If you reveal the standard Barbarian icon, you will spin the corresponding reel. Revealing the ‘All Wins x2’ symbol will multiply all wins on the current spin by times two. Revealing the ‘Surrender’ image will end the Battle Bonus round. And if three of the same standard symbol come into view in the Throne sections, you will activate the Royal Re-Spin feature. First, pick a shield to add identical symbols to the Royal Reel in order to achieve bigger wins and then see the re-spin occur.
Finally, you will start this game as a Serf, but you have the chance to ascend up the status ladder. You will move on to being a Commoner, Merchant and more, until you reach King status. You need to achieve various different tasks in order to move on to the next level, such as winning five consecutive rounds.
