Novomatic Spring Queen Slot Review and Free Play

Spring Queen: Demo

Spring Queen is a Novomatic-powered video slot that comes with 5 reels and 40 paylines. It can be played from as little as 40p to as much as £60 per spin on desktop (laptops/PCs), mobile and tablet (iOS & Android) devices. This spring themed offering is set in a peaceful garden where symbol upgrades in the feature gives you bigger wins as well as additional free spins.

Aesthetically, Spring Queen is what you’d expect from Novomatic – set among lush grasslands, symbols on the reels feature playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9) and animals like peacocks, black horses and leopards. You will also see the Spring Queen herself. The animal and Spring Queen symbols are the high value symbols and appear 2 symbols high on all reels (i.e. cover 2 positions). The Spring Queen rewards you with 12.5 times your total bet for 5 across a payline.

The Spring Queen logo is the game’s wild and appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 – as you’d expect, it substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. That scatter is the mystic crystal ball for 3 or more anywhere on the reels triggering the Free Games + Spring Queen Bonus feature. You will get 10 free spins but triggering the feature with 5 scatters will also get you a bonus of 20 times your total bet.

Once in the feature, look out for the high value symbols (peacock, black horse or leopard) appears on rows 2 and 3 at the same time (they appear 2 symbols high) – this will upgrade the symbol. For example:

  • The peacock upgrades to the black horse and 1 extra free spin is awarded
  • The black horse upgrades to the leopard and 3 extra free spins are awarded
  • The leopard upgrades to the Spring Queen with 5 more free spins added

All instances of the symbol that upgrades will also upgrade for even bigger wins. The Spring Queen symbol appears specially stacked during the feature so there’s potential for bigger wins. On every free spin, symbols can upgrade to give you more free spins and bigger wins. The number of free spins you can win is therefore infinite if you’re luck is in.

I quite like Spring Queen where the key is to upgrade the symbols to the highest value Spring Queen – I consider it to be a medium to high variance video slot and typical of Novomatic. By the way, you can also play Autumn Queen (by Novomatic) which has a similar theme. Alternatively, WMS’ Amazon Queen is highly recommended.
