Royal Spins Slot Machine
Royal Spins is the sort of game where the player gets a modern setup and a couple of interesting features, but which relies on graphics that belong about a decade back, using classic symbols and fruits and keeping the number of lines low. IGT tends to do a lot better feature wise in their games, so this game doesn’t excel in any area, if you discount the progressive jackpot that is available.
The slot gets 5x3 reels, but uses them to host only 5 active lines. Reward wise, it can offer you 200x the bet, with up to $100,000 potentially available. You may encounter along the way symbols with abilities of scatters, plus free spins, but that’s about it.
Betting and Prizes
To play Royal Spins, you only need to cover 1 line, though I would recommend you do this for all 5 if you can. You can set up the wager per line, which starts at $1 and goes up to $100. The full range for the bets is between $1 and $500.
There are two different ways through which you can get the big payout, of up to $100,000. One of these is through a regular combo of red 7s, symbols which will pay up to 1,000 coins when there are five of them together. The other method is through the Crown scatter, which offers rewards of up to 200x your bet, also amounting to 1,000 coins at most. The slot gets a Return to Player of about 96.03%, which is decent for a modern slot and very good for one that is inspired by the classics.
Royal Spins Slot Features
One of the things to note about Royal Spins is that it’s going to form your combinations by starting from either side of the screen, which makes it a touch more profitable than it would seem at first, at least compared with your average slot that will pay you only for combinations that begin from the leftmost position of a line.
Looking at the features of Royal Spins, you are not going to find a very long list of options there. There is only one real feature symbol to be had, the one that’s showing the Royal Crown. Considered scatters, the Royal Crowns are required to appear on consecutive reels, but they don’t have to populate the same active lines in order to be helpful to you. Based on the number of times the symbols have appeared, you can receive 3, 5 or 10 free spins, from 3, 4 or 5 Crowns, respectively.
There are prizes to be had as well, varying between 2x and 200x total bet, when you have one to five scatters during the free spins.
The progressive jackpot is won with a meter’s help, which gets one cherry to light up whenever you get a five-of-a-kind win with cherry symbols. You need five cherries to light up in total.
Theme & Design
Looking at the theme of Royal Spins, for the most part you’re going to have classic icons on the reels. There is some influence from the Middle Ages as well, and the action is taking place inside a castle, of which you see the interior in the background. There is the image of the Crown as well, made out of gold and with different precious stones placed on it. The rest of the symbols are the usual ones, sporting images of the red7, plums, cherries, oranges or golden bells.
Royal Spins has a couple of arguments in its favor, but it relies mostly on the progressive jackpot that it can offer to its more loyal players.
