The Royals Slot

Slots developers can't help a bit of medieval action in their games. Quickspin's Rapunzel's Tower has bonus Wilds, sticky bonus symbols, and a free spins feature, as well as all the fancy graphics you can handle. And of course, Rabcat's Castle Builder has won awards for its innovative progressive feature that plays more like an arcade game than a slot.

All about the Royal Jackpots

Of course, kings and queens feature in most slots in the form of playing card symbols, and NOVOMATIC's The Royals is no different. Set in a medieval landscape, complete with castles and flowing flags, The Royals looks like a 5-reel video slot but actually plays a bit like a classic game.

There are no bonus symbols in the classic sense, and most of the big wins are triggered at random. But with a top spin worth £80, this is definitely a game for the big spenders.

Roll up for Low-Variance Action

Available in instant-play formats at NOVOMATIC casinos like Bell Fruit, The Royals is played over 5 reels and features 20 paylines. The big bonus is that players are spared the annoying NOVOMATIC cash register noises when the reels spin. All that accompanies the games is a gentle xylophone tinkle.

On the reels, the card symbols are the main payers, with the 10, J, Q and K paying up to 10x-stake for a 5-in-a-row. A bag of gold is more lucrative, paying out 25x your stake if you hit the jackpot. The cherries and plums - both low-paying - make the most regular appearances on the reels.

Trigger up to 250,000 Coins at Random

If you've come to The Royals looking for lots of lovely bonuses, think again. There is a Wild in the game - the jolly Jester - who appears stacked on some reels. He also substitutes for ALL symbols in the game, certainly a big bonus. Watch out, though, as he only appears on Reels 3, 4, and 5.

However, the lack of Scatters doesn't mean there's nothing to look forward to. Randomly at the end of any spin - winning or losing - The Royals feature may trigger. A Royal queen, king or prince will appear in one of the windows on the reels. The reels then spin to land on a winning combo. This keeps happening until a losing combination is spun.

The jackpots can be pretty big: 250,000 coins for three red 7s and 100,000 coins for three yellow 7s are the top prizes here.

Reel in Some More Royal Action Online

If The Royals looks and feels familiar, you've probably been playing other 'kingly' NOVOMATIC slots. The Royals is a virtual clone of Reel King, a 5x3 slot that also comes with 20 paylines. The slot features stacked Wilds but also an unlimited free spins feature for more conventional bonus action.

And if one set of reels isn't enough for you, why not try four? 4 Reel Kings has four lots of 5x3 reels on its game screen which alternate between spins. This gives players the chance to quadruple their wins in a single spin. Like in The Royals, a feature can trigger at random - the Reel King feature - where players can win between 5x and 500x their total bet.

Low Variance Fun - But Where's the Bonus?

First, the good news: The Royals is a slick little online slot that caters for budgets big and small. It has some quite cute graphics (although some animation would have been nice) and the sound FX are unobtrusive enough.

The big problem is the "random" bonus round. We didn't see it appear for 100+ spins, and when you consider the Wild only appears on Reels 3-5, that doesn't make for a good bonus slot.

While the RTP is reasonable for a NOVOMATIC online slot, it's better to hunt out some slightly higher-variance games from this classic developer.
