Enjoy some right royal action in Queen of the Castle, a regal-themed 5 reel, 576 ways to win video slot from NextGen Gaming. Look out for locked reels, symbol match transformations and a free spins round where collecting crowns adds extra freebies and expands the game engine. Stakes range from between 40p and £20 per spin.
The design in Queen of the Castle is simply done – the reels are set within a cartoon castle and include playing cards, gemstones, thrones, money pouches, corgis and Queen of the Castle banners. Helping to create winning lines is the Queen herself who is the wild. She spins in stacked formation and replaces everything bar the scatter and bonus symbols. There’s a decent variety of extras on offer in Queen of the Castle too.
Locked Reels feature – watch out for the vine leaves that can appear on any spin and tangle the 3 middle reels. This causes them to spin together with matching symbols showing on all 3 reels.
Red Chest Mystery Reveal feature – land a full stack of red treasure chests on reel 1 and all of the A, K, Q and J symbols on the other 4 reels will also become red treasure chests. These then morph into the same matching symbol and a new payout is made. A partial stack of treasure chests on reel 1 results in a nudge which could trigger the feature.
Purple Chest Mystery Reveal feature – a stack of purple chests on reel 5 activates this feature. Here the gemstone symbols morph into chests. They then turn into the same corgi, money pouch, throne or banner symbol and a new payout follows. The partial stack nudges can hit here too.
Free Games feature – find 3 scatters on the same spin and you can look forward to 14 free spins. Look out for the crowns that replace the scatters as each time 1 lands, it’s collected in a meter. The more you collect, the more free spins are added to your total and the ways to win in the game engine expands. Reach the top level and you could end up playing your extra free spins on a 3,087 ways to win machine. You can land the mystery chest features from within the free spins round.
Queen of the Castle is a jolly looking game. The basic design works well here though. As do the features which deliver plenty of variety and action. This simple royal yarn is an entertaining one. If you like the theme, this audience of the queen is well worth making. I suggest you take a look at NextGen Gaming’s other offerings with Dragon Wins recommended.
