Where to play?
The Royal Family from Yggdrasil is your quintessential medium to high variance online casino video slot that’s laced with bonus rounds and it has a medieval theme.
With 25 paylines and 5 reels the top jackpot (non-progressive) that can be won on a spin is 250 coins. Bets can be made from £0.10 up to £200 per spin on mobile phones (Androids, iOS, tablets) or PC desktops (Apple Mac and Windows). Each character is depicted in cartoon-style visuals. High value symbols like the A, K, Q and J can transform into sticky wilds.
The game’s in-play bonus rounds are lucrative an there’s a free spins feature that doles out up to 24 free spins. The free spins can be triggered in 3 different ways. We really like the feature because it gives you more free spins (re-triggered) that’s kitted with multipliers from 2x to 4x, 6 wilds and 2 starting wild reels!
When the Royal Chest pops up (it does from time to time) 5 cards appear on your screen – pick one. Each card awards a cash prize from 100 – 2,500 coins, 8 to 24 extra free spins. It also appears during the free spins offering extra freebies and 1 – 3 extra wilds.
A medieval castle serves as backdrop against the reels. Symbols on the reels are hearts, spades, clubs, diamonds, cards from J to Ace, wild (jester), knight, king, queen, let’s just call the blond haired dude prince charming. The Ace is the most valuable symbol, 5 of them at the maximum bet pays 10x your stake.
The Royal Family has a theoretical return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.1%.
The coin value is 0.004 to 8.00, as you increase it your average bet per spin shoots up. To get the most out of its bonus features it’s best to play it will a bankroll of at least £250, recommended average bet per spin should be £2.50. Remember that the bonus features are hard to trigger. The other alternative is to split your bankroll between 4 different games (£250/4=£62.50), play each game for 10 spins at £6.25.
The base game has 12 featured prizes that can be carried over to the free spins. The wild symbol is the jester girl, winning combos are completed by it when it substitutes symbols adjacent to it bar the free spins scatter logo.
The Reel-Specific feature awards cash prizes as you collect swords (reel 1), crowns (reel 2), golden eggs (third reel), necklaces (reel 4) and keys (reel 5).
The prizes are awarded like this:
- Reel 1. 2x starting wilds, 2 x free spins with a multiplier of 2x
- Reel. The multiplier is 4x
- Reel 3. Two starting wild reels
- Reel 4: Six starting wilds
- Reel 5: Here you’ll pocket an extra 9 free spins
The Royal Chest pops up during the free spins feature and the main game, keep in mind that it only pitches on reel 5. During the main game you can win as much as 100 coins or you can win 8, 16 to 24 free spins. When the royal chest appears during the free spins extra free spins and up to 3 sticky wilds are won.
Kudos to Yggdrasil’s for putting together The Royal Family, it’s a captivating and entertaining slots with many bonus features. Once again the free spins feature carries the day since it offers plenty of extras such as multipliers of up to 4x, sticky wilds and a whopping 1,981x your stake can be won on one free spin. It should not be played with a small bankroll because the bonus rounds are difficult to trigger.
