Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss: Demo

Join Odeon and the Guardians of the Abyss in another video slot in Playtech’s popular Kingdoms Rise jackpot series. This ocean adventure comes with a bonus round that awards free spins with multipliers, added wilds or added top value symbols. You can also buy the respin feature when you’ve collected enough gold tokens. Also up for grabs are 3 jackpot prizes. It comes with 5 reels and 25 paylines – it’s open to players of all bankrolls too with stakes ranging from between 10p and £300 per spin.

Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss: underwater kingdom

Like the other video slots in the Kingdoms Rise series, there’s a classy feel to the design in Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss. Set against the backdrop of an Atlantis-style oceanic realm, the game features gemstones, jewels and the 3 Guardians – Jax, Akali and Odeon. The latter is the most rewarding, paying 8, 20 or 40 times your bet for a 3, 4 or 5 symbol combo. Better still is the wild which pays up to 50 times your bet per payline.

Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss: seashells trigger the Guardian Bonus

The main features in Guardians of the Abyss come from the Guardian Bonus. To land it, you’ll need to hit 3 seashell scatters on the same spin. The shells will then open to reveal which of the 3 features you’ve won, how many free spins you’ll receive and what level of power is in play.

  • Odeon feature – if you trigger the Odeon feature, more top paying Odeon symbols are added. How many depends on the third seashell.
  • Akali feature – Akali awards extra wilds. Again, the power shell will determine just how many you can expect to see on each free spin.
  • Jax feature – the buff Guardian Jax comes with wild multipliers attached. These can range from 2x up to 8x depending on the power seashell.

Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss: collect tokens

Like the other Kingdoms Rise games, you can buy another feature once you have amassed enough gold tokens. These can land at random on any spin. With 500 in the bank, you’ll be able to open up the Kingdoms Rise Shop which can get you the following feature:

Wild Vortex Respins feature – once active, a vortex can appear anywhere on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5. This vortex throws out a series of wilds. A set of respins then follows with any wilds moving one space towards the vortex on each of them. Once a wild reaches the vortex it’s gobbled up and removed from play. The round continues until all the wilds have been sucked up by the vortex. You’ll receive 1, 2 or 3 extra wilds if you by the Wild Vortex Respins feature with 300, 750 or 1,500 tokens.

Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss: Kingdoms Rise Jackpot feature

Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss also offers a chance to win 1 of 3 progressive jackpots. These can activate at random on any paid spin and at any level of stakes. The best is the Epic Jackpot which can rise infinitely!

Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss: guardians deliver

We enjoyed this addition to the Kingdoms Rise franchise. The sound and visuals are excellent the free spins round offers some decent potential thanks to the modifier extras. The best wins come from Jax as the potential 8x multiplier can lead to wins of 10,000 times your bet (1,250 x bet max win x 8x multiplier).

Add the Wild Vortex Respins feature and the trio of progressive jackpots into the mix and we’re happy to recommend dipping your toes into these uncharted waters. If you want bigger wins, Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest is the one to play.
