Powered by Play N’ Go, Royal Masquerade video slots features 10 paylines, 5 reels and pays out a top non-progressive jackpot cash prize of 500,000 coins. The theme of the video slots is similar to that of the Phantom of the Opera and set against the backdrop of Venetian theme. I must admit it’s a swashbuckling affair where the dames are voluptuous and the gents hide behind colourful masks. The audio of the game is soothing and compliments the theme of the slots well.
”You are cordially invited to a night of mystery and romance at a baroque costume ball.” Play N’ Go
Symbols that appear on the reels are wilds, golden masked lady (scatter), distinguished looking gents, beautiful women with colourful dresses, the jester, bard and card icons from 10 to Ace. The game comes with a free spins feature where 20 of them can be won and wilds (chap with the hooked-nosed mask). The symbol that offers the highest payout is the stacked wild, 5 of them at the highest betting range pays out 1,000 coins. The game is playable on all mobile devices and desktops for real cash or for free. It’s a high variance slots with an return to player (RTP) percentage of 95.6%. It’s a highly entertaining game but it can be a bit of a money gobbler since it pays out on every 4 to 6 spins.
The coin value is 0.01 up to 2.00 which is quite extensive. The smallest stake per spin is £0.01 up to a maximum bet of £100 making the game suitable to players with different budgets. But if you’re out chasing the big wins it’s a high rollers dream. I played the game at a coin value of 0.05, 5 coins at the max 10 lines which translates into an average bet of £2.50 per spin. My biggest win during the main game at this coin range was £56.
The scatter icon is the lady with the golden mask, 3 of them triggers the free spins mode awarding you up to 5 free spins which guarantees you a cash prize. The free spins can be re-triggered, if another 3 scatters appear, up to 20 free spins can be won. The scatter lady icon awards 2 free spins every time she appears. It took me quite some time to trigger the free spins, think I triggered it after 120 spins (£2.50x£150=£300) and managed a win of £150 which was my biggest win as well. Despite a total win of £206 the game still got the better of me since I lost £94.
If you want to double or even quadruple all your wins you’re more than welcome to give it a shot but discretion is advised since Royal Masquerade is already a high variance game. Up to 5 gamble features are available in a session.
Royal Masquerade is a beautifully crafted slots that’s rich in everything: free spins, stacked wilds, eye-catching visual animations and offers a non-progressive jackpot of 10,000 times your stake. Since it’s a high variance slots just be careful that you’re not caught up in all the pomp and glamour-it can chew up your bankroll pretty fast. Although I lost a pretty penny it’s still one of the best Play N’ Go slots I’ve played. I think this game will be a hit with players.
