There are many monarchs or Pharaoh’s that find their way into slot games. Now it’s the turn of the Queen of Hearts but whether this one has anything to do with the character from Alice in Wonderland isn’t confirmed. There’s no other characters from the books so perhaps not. This slot does give its players the chance to win some big cash prizes though thanks to free spins and a cherub.
This game has just the nine pay-lines on its five reels and three rows of attractive looking symbols. Using the control buttons that are situated underneath the reels, you can set either one, three, five, seven or all nine pay-lines. You also need to be deciding how much to stake on each spin. The minimum amount you can wager on one spin with all nine pay-lines in play is 0.09, ideal if you have a low limit and the max bet 450. Simply play at a level that you can afford to lose if play doesn’t go too well.
This can be played on your PC but it’s also mobile optimised. The symbols include the Queen herself who’s a pretty young blonde so this definitely isn’t anything to do with Alice in Wonderland. Other symbols include the castle where she lives, a ruby ring, a crown, and a yellow rose. We also get the nine to Ace playing card symbols that are the low paying ones in this game.
The wild symbol is the red heart and that can substitute for other symbols to help get you some winning combinations. If you can get five of the wild symbols on an activated pay-line that wins you the best prize of 10,000x your line bet and even four see you winning 2000x so keep an eye out for that on the reels. It can’t replace the scatter symbol which is the Queen herself and five of them anywhere on the reels will win you 400x your stake.
If you can get at least three of the scatter symbols on the reels of the Queen of Hearts video slot, that triggers the free spins round. Just how many of the scatters trigger the free spins round determines how many free spins the player will receive. Three will get you eight free spins, four takes that up to 15 and if it’s five then you will be playing with 20 free spins. During the free spins round, after each free game the cherub icon makes an appearance and he fires his arrow at one or more of the symbols turning them into wild symbols. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins if those scatter symbols come along in triplicate.
As is often the case with many slots with software by Novomatic, there is a gamble feature in ‘Queen of Hearts.’ This appears after you get a win in the base game and you have the choice to either play it or not. If you do decide to play then good luck because this is a very risky game to play. The task is to correctly guess what the colour of the next playing card drawn is going to be. If you get it right then you double your win and have four more chances to do so. However, an incorrect guess leads to you losing all your win so be very careful with this.
It’s a great idea to have a look through the paytable before you start to play for real money. This is packed with tons of information including how much each of the winning combinations will see you cash-out. For example, five yellow roses win has a 3000x multiplier and the castle 500x. It also has the details of the free spins round and how winning combinations are paid out. Also, have some free Queen of Hearts slot machine games to see how everything works when the reels start spinning.
There are several other online slot games that have similar gameplay to ‘Queen of Hearts.’ For example, you can try your luck on playing ‘Illusionist’ which is another nine-pay-line slot from Novomatic. That also has a gamble feature, wild and scatters and gives players the chance to win free spins. Also, have a play of the Inbet Gaming slot ‘Pirates Bay,’ which also has nine pay-lines and offers its players the chance to win 15 free spins but also has a sticky wild that will help get you wins.
The theme to this slot isn’t that unique but it’s well adhered to. A spot of royalty and love isn’t that bad and you will love this slot if you can get into the free spins with the maximum 20 free games. The cherub symbol can certainly get you some good wins, just be careful with the gamble feature.
