Novomatic certainly love releasing slot games that have a medieval theme. ‘The Royals’ video slot is one of several that we have reviewed and they are all entertaining to play. This one has a colourful look to it and with a wild symbol and profitable free spins round, this slot can bring you some big profits.
Before you start playing this game, the Reality Check Interval must be set. The time you set, say 15 minutes, is the length of time that will pass until the game is suspended. You are then shown how you are getting on financially and have the choice to either stop or continue playing. It’s best not to set too high a check interval as it’s easy to lose track of time and this is a useful responsible gambling tool.
In the background of this game that has software from Novomatic, we can see the castle where the royal family lives. There’s a cloudy blue sky and whoever does own this castle certainly love their flags as there are a fair few of them on show. ‘The Royals’ is a five-reel game and the three rows of large symbols have a total of 20 pay-lines. That’s not a fixed number so you can choose as many as you like on each spin. Use the menu button to set how many to activate and your stake. That means the least you can be spending and playing 20 pay-lines is 0.40 and the most you can be gambling is 100 so ideal for a high roller. Work out a budget, stick to it and have fun playing this video slot whether it be on your PC or iPhone
In a lot of slot games, you will play the control buttons are underneath the reels. That’s not the case here as they are to the left and right of them. The spin button is on the right and above that the link to the menu. That includes the paytable and the chance to decide whether to mute the soundtrack which isn’t the best. When the gamble feature is activated the control, button is to the left of the reels. Underneath the reels, you can see the size of your bet, the current level of your account balance and the size of your last win.
The symbols in this online slot are regal as you might expect considering the game’s title but not in the way you might be expecting. There are plums and cherries, a sack of gold coins and the Ten to Ace playing card symbols in a variety of colours. As Is often the case in these medieval games, it’s the Jester which is the wild symbol. This can replace the other symbols to get you wins but only appears on the third to fifth reels.
What about the royal symbols then? Well they appear randomly in the game’s special feature. This can occur any time after a spin that doesn’t produce a winning combination. A royal character will appear on one or more of the reels and cover the entire reel. The reels then spin and stop on prize-winning combinations. The best thing here is that if a winning combination does come along, the process is repeated with another reel-respin. They certainly look different with the red, blue and yellow 7’s underneath them. If you can get three of the red 7’s that pays a 750x multiplier.
Before you start playing this game with real cash, it’s important to look through the paytable. This is part of the menu and gives information about how much each winning combination pays out, details of the feature and the wild symbol. Also ensure that you take advantage of some free ‘The Royals’ slot machine games in order to see everything in action.
There is also a gamble feature in this slot but for a change it’s not the playing cards game. When you get a winning combination, you can either claim it or gamble it. This time it’s the steps game where if the light flashes and you go up a step then your win is doubled. If it doesn’t flash then you lose your win so be careful how many times you use this.
There are several slot games out there that have similar gameplay to ‘The Royals.’ You can test your luck on ‘Lucky 5 Reeler’ from Barcrest which also has ten pay-lines and has a similar RTP. Unlike ‘The Royals’ there isn’t a wild symbol. Also have a play of the Novomatic slot ‘Heart of Gold,’ another ten pay-line game which does have a wild symbol and is of medium variance.
An interesting slot release from Novomatic but one that can get you some good wins. It’s strange not having a standard free spins round but the feature they do have does offer you some re-spins if those winning combinations come along. The gamble feature at least is a bit different in this game but as ever the advice is to use this sparingly and try to make sure you hold onto your wins.
