Where to play?
Battle Royal is a 20 payline, 5 reel, 3-row, high variance video slot from Play N’ Go that pays as much as 5,000x your stake on a single spin.
The theme of the online slot is based on England’s most notorious Tudor monarchs King Henry the 8th and his 6 infamous wives. Henry beheaded two of his wives namely Catherine Howard and Ann Boleyn. The game is playable on mobile devices (Androids, iPhones, tablets) or PCs from £0.20 up to £100 per spin.
It comes with a Royal Flush feature where low value symbols are transformed into other symbols. A Free Spins bonus where a guillotine chops of the heads of a wife transforming it into an extra wild. The last bonus game is the Long Live the King feature, essentially it’s a pick me round where you must pick chests to reveal a cash prize.
Henry loved to gamble, come to think of it he’ll be making a few spins in his grave if he knew he’s the main character in a slot game centuries later. We must warn you, on the volatility scale Play N’ Go rated Battle Royal a 10/10 making it the ideal slots for high rollers. The game art has a medieval ‘look’ to it with the reels being flanked by Lion banners.
Symbols on the reels are King Henry the 8th (wild), scatter Coat of Arms, 6 wives (with their heads on and beheaded) and low value cards (clubs, hearts, diamonds, spades). King Henry is the most valuable symbol, 5 of them on the reels at the maximum wager pays 30x your stake. Play N’ Go did not disclose the RTP of the game, all we can say if its a 10 it can be anything from 93% to 95%.
King Henry the 8th is the wild, winning combinations are completed by it when it substitutes symbols adjacent to it bar the Coat of Arms (scatter).
In the base game the Royal Flush bonus round is triggered randomly on each spin, symbols of low value (card suits) are converted into the same symbol for the bigger wins.
The free spins feature is initiated when the Coat of Arms scatter pitches on reels 1 and 5, you can decide between the Free Spins or Long Live the King feature. If you picked the free spins you must choose one of Henry’s 6 wives hoping that she survives the guillotine. On each free spin a guillotine drops, a wife symbol’s head will be chopped off if it’s visible or the top half – that symbol acts as a wild until the free spins end.
If the symbol is not beheaded it does not become a wild if the bottom half of the symbol is not visible on the top row. The free spins bonus ends until only 1 wife symbol remains, basically every wife that’s beheaded acts as a wild you can have as much as 5 wilds! Therefore, if the wife you picked makes it out in once piece a nice windfall will be heading (pun intended) your way.
Long Live the King
This is a pick me round showcasing various chests, here you must help Henry escape the dungeon and to collect as much loot as possible. As you pick a chest it releases the ghost of one of Henry’s wives which moves across the reels. If a ghost bumps into Henry the bonus round ends abruptly. There are plenty of chests but only one has a key. If you picked the chest with the key, Henry escapes from the dungeon and a mystery multiplier is added to your winnings.
Alternatively you can take a risk by opening more chests for instant prizes. If you accessed the Long Live the King via the free spins, the cash prize you won during the free spins will be enhanced by the multiplier. If you triggered Long Live the King via the Free Spins it’s best to exit the feature the moment you found the key.
Battle Royal is a rather comical slots that takes a poke at one of England’s ill-famed Kings. With a top payout of 5,000x your stake on each free spin it doesn’t make sense to play a game that will cut through your bankroll like a chainsaw in no time. Question is how many spins will it take to trigger the free spins? Suppose you can work on 150 plus spins making it a very ‘risky’ game to play.
Battle Royal Play N’ Go frequently asked questions
How many in-play bonus rounds does the slots have?
It has 3 bonus modes starting with the Royal Flush feature that’s triggered randomly on each spin during the main game. Card suits (low value) are transformed into the same random symbol. The next one is the Free Spins where you can get as much as 5 wilds on each free spin followed by Long Live the King bonus.
Can I trigger the free spins feature within 100 spins?
We don’t think so because battle Royal takes high variance slots play to the next level. The free spins feature is played when the coat of arms scatter pops up simultaneously on reels 1 and 5. We’ve been told that it’s extremely difficult to trigger the free spins which makes the game kinda obsolete.
