King of Slots is a gem-studded release from NetEnt. It has 5 columns of 15 independent reels and 25 paylines, with bets starting from 25p a spin. If you’re a fan of the classic slot features, you can expect to see both the famous features as well as some fantastic quirks which can help to maximise wins. The title character, the King of Slots himself, will accompany you by the side of the reels as you spin through this sparkly take on the original slot games.
Let the royal curtains open up onto your pink-glowing game. Our cheerful King will stay by your side throughout the game while you explore the special features and admire the detail on the symbols as they spin. The King of Slots game is quite a classy affair in contrast to some of the fruit-themed slots we see.
Perhaps the fact that the higher value symbols are all made of jewels is what makes it seem so sophisticated. This and the laid-back backing track to accompany the spins both help. Prepare for a game-show-esque celebration sound when you land a win, though!
Place Your Bets
The 25 paylines in the King of Slots game are fixed, meaning they will be in play with every spin. Having 15 independent reels means that each visible spot on the game table spins independently of another. With each box having its own assigned reel, there may be increased potential for matching symbols to land.
Firstly, you can select the coin value to play against each of the paylines with every spin. This varies from 1p per payline up to 20p. The value you choose here will be multiplied by the 25 paylines to create your coin bet.
If you want to add extra weight to your bet, you can increase the level of your bet, which is the equivalent of adding an extra coin on each payline, the higher you go. The bet level should be automatically set to 1, but it can be adjusted up to a top value of 10. This will be multiplied by the coin bet to create your total bet.
You can double check that you are happy with your bet before you play. It will be displayed just below the spin button under the middle reel.
When you’re all set, hit spin.
The King’s Wins
The paylines are played from left to right, so your winning matches must start on reel one. Land three or more of the same symbols on a payline to win but land the maximum of five, and you could get the top payouts.
The golden crown with the pink jewels in it is the highest-value symbol in the King of Slots. Matching the maximum of five crowns on a payline can pay out 1000 times your coin bet. A royal prize indeed!
Next up, we have some jewelled fruits. The sparkling watermelon slices can pay out a maximum of 300 times your coin bet, and the lemons will award you up to 250 times your bet for landing five-of-a-kind on a payline.
Landing five sets of cherry jewels from left to right can pay out 200 times your coin bet.
The lower-value symbols in the King of Slots are the card values, from Ace to 10. Top prize payouts for these symbols range from 40 to 125 times your coin bet, depending on which values you land.
The King of Slots has three key special features which can be triggered throughout the game.
A staple feature in slots is the Wild. It has the ability to substitute for any of the standard symbols in play to create winning lines, should it land in the right place.
The shimmering pink crystals are the Scatter symbols. If you can land five of these in one spin, you will trigger the free spins feature.
You have the potential to trigger up to 30 free spins, depending on how many Scatter symbols you land in the spin.
Any wins made during the free spins feature are multiplied by three.
Perhaps the most exciting feature of all of them is the Sticky Win. This feature makes us see why the independent reels exist. A winning bet line of three or more scatter symbols will trigger the Sticky Wins.
Any of the 15 reels with matching symbols will be held in place while the other reels re-spin, with the chance of creating bigger wins. If you continue to land more symbols which match the original ones, the Sticky Wins will keep coming.
Once there are no more new matches, the feature will end, and your wins will be added to your prize fund.
The King of Slots game is a quirky twist on the familiar slots, maintaining the fruit symbols but ramping up the excitement with all of the individual reels.
Having the Sticky Wins feature activated with every win makes it feel so much more accessible. There is no bonus round to trigger, it is simply a bonus with every winning line which we can keep making the most ooF1
The Return to Player (RTP) of the King of Slots is 96.96%. It has quite a low variance, meaning that smaller wins are likely more often.
NetEnt have built up a reputation as developers of some of the top slot games out there, particularly with video slots. If you would like to see what all the fuss is about, take a look at Guns N Roses or Jumanji.
