Royal Family: the Attractive New Slot from Yggdrasil

the-royal-family-slot-yggdrasil

Despite Meghan Markle’s recent marriage to Prince Harry over the in UK, this slot sadly does not feature either of their beautiful faces! Instead, this cartoonish game brings more of the grandeur and playfulness you’d expect to see in the latest Disney movie. The graphic design is simple yet attractive (the minimum you’d expect from Yggdrasil) and the Free Spins round can produce truly regal payouts.

Theme

From the uppity court music to the delightful costumes and coffers full of gold coins, everything about this slot is truly royal. It’s also simple, unbridled good fun!

Gameplay

Set before a beautiful castle with matching towers, the reels are displayed like an old-fashioned theatre, with ruby-red curtains revealing the stars of the show. On the reels, you’ll find basic playing card symbols in addition to more lucrative options: swords, crowns, golden eggs, necklaces, and keys. In fact, these symbols have even greater worth than pure coins.

You’ll notice that beneath each reel is space for two symbols. That’s because each reel has its own special symbol, and if you manage to land a symbol on its matching reel (twice) you win a special prize! The combinations are as follows:

  • Reel 1 – Swords, 2 extra free spins, 2x multiplier or 2 starting wilds
  • Reel 2 – Crowns, 4x multiplier
  • Reel 3 – Golden eggs, 2 starting wild reels
  • Reel 4 – Necklaces, 6 starting wilds
  • Reel 5 – Keys, 9 additional free spins

Once you collect the so-called “feature prizes” on their corresponding reels, you’ll unlock at least 8 free spins with that special ability activated. There are also other non reel-specific feature prizes to be won, which can also trigger the free spins round!

Free Spins Bonus Round

The free spins round is pretty simple: lots of spins. However, there’s a super-cool feature where all face cards (so pictures of royal family members) spin round after each spin, and occasionally transform into wilds! Not only that, but the wilds are sticky, and remain in place for the full duration of the round – including when you retrigger new spins.

And let’s not forget the Royal Chest: it only lands occasionally, but when it does, you’re given the chance to win up to 4 extra spins or 3 new sticky wilds in addition to your regular win off that spin. This symbols also appears during the base game, and can really produce some magic.

Our Verdict

It’s a great game. The design is simple without being basic, and the special features are not only original, but beautifully animated and royally lucrative! If you’re in the market for a new game, you have to give this a try!
