River Queen Slots

It’s time to rewind over 100 years and take a voyage of the sea with the infamous River Queen steamboat which sailed the seas in the 19th Century. Novomatic take us back to the Victorian period where such ships were packed out with people singing, dancing, drinking, and of course gambling – whether it be blackjack games or hustling the card sharks in poker.

With the various tiers of the ship viewable in the background, the reels have a truly ornamental flair to them with Victorian styled lanterns adorning the design alongside the iconic River Queen signage. The symbols have also been designed with an ornate feel but along with the free spins feature there are huge wins to be had as you take a journey on this vessel.

The structure of River Queen consists of 5 reels and can be played for up to 50 paylines. The stake per line options begin at £0.01 and go up to £1 and this means when all paylines are selected the minimum bet amount is £0.50 and the maximum bet amount is £50 each and every spin.

Ornate Symbols, Same Old Sounds

All of the symbols in River Queen have been designed with a traditional and ornate look in keeping with the theme. The main symbol to watch out for is the Lady holding an umbrella as she is the Wild and substitutes for the others, apart from the Scatter which is represented by the River Queen steamboat – and as the slot revolves around it you won’t be surprised to discover it is highest paying and also required for the free spins feature. Keeping with the on board gambling theme there is a male card shark, four-of-a-kind Aces, dice, poker chips, plus Ace to 9 playing card symbols in ornamental style.

That rich feeling of history and the Victorian period is completely lost as soon as you hit the spin button and the sounds ring out. They are the same old stock sounds from Novomatic’s music library that are also used in their other slots like Columbus and Xtra Hot – completely unrelated to the theme and too upbeat. Instead sounds of steamboats or the ‘hustle and bustle’ of life on a steamboat should have been recreated to add some atmosphere to the reels.

Ship Those Spins

It’s time to ship the free spins by landing three or more Scatter symbols (River Queen), and thankfully these can land anywhere rather than having to be on specific reels. So how much is your reward for this? Well, you instantly get credited with ten free spins but wait, there’s more - additional moving wilds display on the reels throughout these free spins help cast the net even wider to secure much greater wins!

Queen Sized Wins To King Sized Wins

A stalwart fixture in Novomatic slots nowadays is the gamble feature which sees you face a decision every time you land a winning combination – collect your winnings or gamble them for more. It sees you presented with a River Queen playing card rapidly flashing between red and black, with both these options available as buttons to the side.

Your task is to select the button of your choice and try to time it so that your selection is what colour the card is when it stops flashing. If you’re correct your winnings are doubled, but wrong choices see you throw all those winnings overboard never to be recovered!

Worth A Journey?

It’s a rather unique theme which will attract those of you who enjoy history, the Victorian era to be specific, or even cruise ships. It’s been very well designed to complement the historical aspect of the theme with ornamental styled symbols, however this authenticity is lost through the sounds – they are the same boring stock sounds Novomatic use in so many of their standard slot machines and simply don’t do the theme any justice.

Thankfully the free spins mode triggers pretty frequently and it never ceases to amaze me how much the additional moving wilds contribute to reward you with big wins, plus there is the gamble feature that enables you to take a risk and increase standard base game wins. In conclusion it’s certainly not one you are going to bookmark, but it’s pretty nice to play for a feel of history!
