Royal Dynasty Slot
The King himself and his royal court will be your hosts during a game of Royal Dynasty, and you won’t forget your visit to the castle for a long time.
This slot machine game by Novomatic lets five symbol-covered reels spin wildly over twenty different possible paylines, letting you decide where to and how many of your coins you should place into the joust.
So put your finest attire and best manners on and let’s go mingle with the royals.
An Air Of Royalty
Royal Dynasty is set in the Middle Ages, at the court of a wealthy and powerful King. The backdrop of the game is rather simple: a wooden table upon which the reels seem to be placed. You will, however, notice a stash of sizeable gold coins and a heavy-looking crown carelessly left alone.
The game screen is all-and-all quite colourful, with characters wearing bright clothes and shiny ornaments, the occasional pile of gold coins zooming fast and various emblems to top it all.
This makes Royal Dynasty an attractive slot game, with a simple but well-executed design. The sound effects are not the most original or spectacular, but they complement the graphics well to help the players forget about the real world for a little while and socialize with royalty instead.
Many Ways To Sizeable Wins
The gameplay allows for up to 20 active paylines, whose exact number is up to the player to choose before hitting the Start button and letting the reels spin loose. A few more clicks on the (-) and (+) buttons at the bottom of the game screen in order to set the amount of the wager, and you are good to go! The good old Autoplay feature is also there to deliver an undisturbed slot machine experience.
You are a winner each time a winning combination appears on an active payline – which in some circumstances can mean as little as two identical symbols in a row! Feeling adventurous? You will also have the option to double your latest wins, at the risk of losing them, through the Gamble feature. It is a simple 50/50 game, repeat at your own risks – or at your own gains.
Face To Face With His Majesty
There is a grand total of 14 symbols in Royal Dynasty, and a Bonus feature that can literally make each and every one of them twice as rewarding.
We start with the usual suspects at the bottom of the paytable, from 9 to Ace with a simple yet eye-catching design. Further up, things start getting interesting with the Shield and the Gold Coins, followed by the Troubadour and the Lion and Eagle royal emblems.
The royal family comes next, starting with the Prince, the Princess and finally the King: the Wild symbol there to help you complete a combination of symbols, and doubling its value in the process! All the human characters have a somewhat kitsch vibe to them, which is rather endearing and adds to their charm. That and the huge amounts of gold they reward, of course. Nevertheless, the royal family has yet a few more tricks to reveal.
For Gold And For Glory
Both the Prince and the Princess are indeed the Scatter symbols of the game, which means several things. Firstly, their position is of no importance as you will be a winner as soon as at least three of the same kind appear. Secondly, such winning combo triggers the Bonus feature, where you will be greeted by an extra revolving slot there to award you up to 45 Free Spins!
Things change drastically while you’re in Bonus mode – which you can trigger again for extra Free Spins with Scatter symbols of the same kind. If you are in a Prince Bonus mode for instance, all the Princess symbols will automatically change into King symbols (and vice versa in Princess Bonus mode). That’s all the more chances to double any of your combos, while you play for free. His Majesty is in a generous mood indeed.
Classic But Honest
Royal Dynasty is not a bet on originality, we have seen and played other Middle Age and royalty-inspired games by Novomatic before, such as King’s Jester and King’s Treasure for instance. The strength of Royal Dynasty lies in its gameplay, its two Scatter symbols and its very generous Bonus mode.
So if you are in the gambling business only for the gold, and less for the originality, then you might want to give Royal Dynasty a go.
