The Royals Slot from Novomatic

There are some familiar features lurking inside this clean looking and bright 5-reel casino slot game from Novomatic. You’ll initially find a simple game, where the only royals in view are the playing card symbols (unless you count the castle at the top of the screen!). When you hit the bonus feature some more significant kings, queens and princes appear – in the form of mini-slots. These only have 3 reels each, and only 7’s or blanks on the reels. There are also wilds and a refreshing ‘pop’ noise when you hit winning combinations.

  • How to Win on The Royals

    Novomatic use the 20 win-line system for this game – over 5 reels each with 3 rows of symbols. Your minimum stake is 2 coins per line (40c per spin) and the prizes below are described using that spin amount. If you want to check how much you can win spinning $1, $2 or more each time – then the pay table will automatically update as you change your stake.

    The single biggest prize comes from hitting 5 of the sacks full of gold coins – which curiously have a British pound sign on them. This will get you 1000 coins, with 400 coins for 4 and 200 coins for 3. Usually, playing card symbols make up the smallest wins on Novomatic slots. For this game the King symbol is the exception. This looks very regal with a lion type emblem in gold inside the blue design. Lining up 5 of these will get you 400 coins, with 200 for 4 and 120 for 3. The noticeably less decorative Q comes next (200 for 5) with the jack, ten, plum and cherry making up the smallest wins.

    There is a wild symbol which will be very familiar to players who enjoy Novomatic slots, this is the jester, this time peeking over the word ‘wild’. This symbol substitutes for any others to create wins, and appears reasonably frequently on the reels.


    Mini Slots Bonus Feature

    The Royals does not include any bonus symbols, instead using the ascending musical notes idea to trigger the bonus feature. You will often hear a note with the first reel, which will sometimes continue with the other reels coming to a stop. If you get 5 consecutive ascending notes, you have triggered the bonus game.

    What you see is a flag unfurling on between 1 and 3 of the reels, and mini-slot then appears on each one. These look very cartoon like and are the king, queen or prince with a 3-reel slot as their midriff.  Each of these will automatically spin, with 5 possible combinations each time.

    Three red 7’s is the best prize, paying 1000 coins. This is followed by 3 yellow 7’s (400 coins), 3 of the blue 7’s (200 coins) and any 7’s mixed for a consolation prize of 80 coins. The 5th combination is anything which includes a blank, in the form of a black diamond.  Each of the slots will continue to spin and award wins until it hits a combination which does not include a 7 – at that point the slot disappears and the banner rolls back up.

    Clean and Bright Design

    You’ll see a castle, complete with multiple turrets and some regal looking banners above the reels – with a countryside view around the edges. The reels are a clean white and the symbols are very bright and bold – giving an overall clean and modern look to this game (especially when compared to the many older Novomatic slots). While there is little in the way of animations other than flashing and size changes for regular wins, the sound does keep things entertaining. When you win each of the symbols involved will flash and pop in turn. The sound accompanying the reels spinning is also quite musical, in contrast to the usual bleeps and whirrs.

    When the free spins game kicks in, the animations are much better. The small slots look great, each one having plenty of character. Your attention will be on the wins, with smooth action filling up meters for each win and the combining that with your total credit.


    20 Line Setup

    In contrast with the graphics, the setup is very traditional. There are 20 lines crossing the 5 by 3 grid, and a minimum spin amount of 2c per line. You’ll be able to gamble after any wins, and auto play is offered.


    Overall Experience

    I enjoyed The Royals, this is a simple slot with only the mini-games as a feature, though the overall look and feel is much more entertaining and up to date than many Novomatic titles. If you enjoyed Kings Jester, then this is certainly one for your shortlist.
