Progressive Jackpot: Yes
One of the few progressive jackpot games currently available, this 5-reel, 20-payline slot from Novomatic offers some highly interesting game features, plus the opportunity to win as much as 500 times your stake, on top of the progressive jackpot that’s up for grabs. The game is playable across all devices.
Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You may start by clicking on the Menu tab to the right of the reels. This will open a screen where you can set the number of lines you want to play as well as the amount you want to wager per active payline on every spin. If you want to wager the highest amount allowed, click on the Max Bet button. You may then set the reels into motion by clicking on the Spin arrow button right below the Menu tab. Hold this button down if you want the reels to spin automatically.
The game has two low-value symbols, which are represented by cherries and plums. You will also see four of the familiar playing card symbols in a simple yet bold and colourful font. There is a green 10, blue J, yellow Q, and orange K. The symbol with the highest value is represented by a bag of gold.
The game’s Wild symbol is represented by a jester’s hat with the word ‘wild’ printed in front of it. This symbol only appears on the third, fourth, and fifth reels. It can substitute for any of the other base game symbols to help you land winning combinations. This is the only special symbol you will see in the game.
You will notice that the colour of the background changes from red to yellow every time the reels stop spinning. Each reel can have a different background colour on every spin, but when the reels stop spinning and the background is all yellow, the Reel King feature will be triggered. You will see a Reel King character appear over one or more of the reel windows. He will then spin his reels and stop on a winning combination. The free spins will continue until the reels land on a non-winning combination. You could win between 5 and 500 times your wager.
If the reels stop spinning and the background is all red, you will activate the Reel King Potty feature. The Pot King character will appear and spin his reels. The reels will land on one of four combinations. This is where you win the progressive jackpots. Depending on which combination you land, you could win the Bronze, Silver, Gold, or King jackpot.
You get a chance to trigger both special features in this game if the reels stop, with each of them displaying a combination red-yellow background. The Reel King Potty feature will be played first.
The game also has the familiar Gamble feature. Every time you land a winning combination in the base game, you will be given the option of whether to collect your prize or gamble it. If you choose to gamble, you will be brought to a mini-game where you will need to guess the colour of the next playing card to be drawn. If you guess correctly, your prize will be doubled and the mini-game continues. If you guess wrong, the mini-game will end and you will lose your total prize for that round.
