Novomatic certainly love their Queens and here’s another one from them to go along with the Autumn, Winter, and Ice games. It seems that whatever the time of the year or weather, Novomatic have a game that gives gamblers the chance to win lots of real cash thanks to the impressive bonus features in their slot games and this time it’s the turn of Spring though the symbols wouldn’t automatically have you jumping to that conclusion.
This video slot has five reels and three rows of symbols. There are a total of 40 pay-lines on those reels but don’t worry they don’t all have to be funded on each spin of the reels, though the more you do activate, the higher your chances of winning. The minimum cost of playing with all 40 pay-lines activated is 0.40 and the max bet in this slot is 60.
The background to the Spring Queen video slot doesn’t indicate that it’s Spring apart from the fact it’s green. The actual symbols in the game are a bit confusing too. What do you think of when the word ‘summer’ is mentioned? England losing at cricket comes to mind and terrible weather. Well this Summer Queen slot has images of the Spring Queen of course, and very nice she looks too and then a leopard, a black horse, and a peacock. All very strange indeed but it makes for an attractive looking set of reels. We do get the nine to Ace playing card symbols which are given their own flower. There’s also some 3D animation with the main symbols that appear when you win some coins.
Chances of winning combinations are enhanced by the main symbols occupying two spaces on the reels. The wild symbol is the game logo and it’s a stacked wild which only appears on the second, third and fourth reels. It can replace all the other symbols apart from the crystal ball scatter (what’s that got to do with spring?) symbol, there’s still enough to sub for in order to get some winning combinations and five on an activated pay-line wins you 1500 coins so keep an eye out for that.
Three of the crystal ball scatter symbols triggers the free spins round. You are awarded ten of them and there’s also the Spring Queen’s Bonus. The centre two spaces on the reels suddenly become framed and if a peacock lands in there then all the other peacocks on the reels turn into horses, all a bit unique. When a horse lands in the frame it turns into a leopard and a framed leopard becomes a Spring Queen. All of this can increase the chance of you getting some winning combinations.
Do a little bit of homework before playing this for real as it can help get you some big wins in the future. Have some free Spring Queen slot and see just how everything works out when those animals start changing into others. Have a good look through the pay table as well because it’s packed with vital information about the game including all the information about the bonus game and winning combinations.
It’s great to get a win when playing slots for fun but how about trying to boost it a bit? That’s possible thanks to the gamble feature but it can also cost you all your win. You need to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card to double a win, then there’s four more chances. It’s not as easy as it sounds though and a wrong decision means you that win will disappear and never make it into your account balance, so be a bit wary of this and only use it on small wins.
Responsible gambling at an online casino is very important and it’s important you keep track of how you are getting on when playing casino games online. The Reality Check Interval allows you to set a time-limit when the game is suspended and you are shown how you are getting on. Then you can decide whether to quit playing or carry on. It’s a good responsible gambling tool so try to use it as much as possible.
Once you have played this video slot, you can try out some other games that have similar gameplay. Try out ‘Fruit Fall’ which also has software by Novomatic and has 20 pay-lines. It also has a medium variance and slightly higher RTP with a free spins round. Then there’s another Novomatic slot ‘Hoffmania’, another 20 pay-line slot that also gives players ten free spins with a wild symbol on all the reels.
Another in the ‘Queen’ series of video slots by Novomatic and like the others in the series this review believes it’s highly entertaining. It has a great look to it though the choice of symbols is a bit strange. Triggering the bonus round is the key job in this video slot. That’s where the big wins are in this game and the Queen’s Bonus can bring you lots of winning combinations. Be careful with the gamble feature though and try to keep the wins you get.
