Queen of the Castle

Queen of the Castle Introduction

Enter the grand castle and get ready to witness the action with Queen of the Castle, a video slot by NextGen Gaming which comes with 576 ways to win! The reels have a different number of rows, taking up a 3-4-5-4-3 shape, and all you need to do to win is to land three or more identical symbols from left to right of the interface. But there’s a more, because the game is more than nicely stocked with features such as Free Spins, nudges, Wilds, locked reels, scatter pays and even mystery prizes!

Queen of the Castle Game Features

Queen of the Castle can be played for just £ 0.4 per spin, up to a maximum bet amount of £ 100, making this game ideal for both beginners and high rollers. As we said further up, there are 576 ways to win and plenty of features, which we shall read about now.

Queen of the Castle Free Spins and bonuses

There’s quite a variety of bonus symbols and special features that can really help you score bigger wins. First of all, you can land various winning combinations in just a single spin, so don’t worry too much about what appear to be lower-paying symbols. The Queen is a Wild, and will be stacked on any reels on which she lands to replace other symbols and create winning combinations – except for the bonus or crown symbols. 

Another feature that can award you extra wins is the Locked Reels feature, where random spins can see vines grow up around the three middle reels which will then spin together with matching symbols across them. You can score a four of a kind winning combination if you have identical symbols on the first reel.

The Treasure Chests in Queen of the Castle are usually full to the brim with riches – these are no different, helping you to more four of a kind wins if they land on the first or fifth reel. If the red chest symbol lands stacked on reel 1 at the end of a spin, all the lower paying card symbols on the screen will be replaced by red chest symbols, before being transformed into a single medium or high paying symbol. These new combinations can bring you big payouts indeed!

Similarly, when the purple chest symbol lands stacked on the fifth reel, all gems and chest symbols will be substituted by the throne, money bag, dog or other higher paying symbols. If the chest stack doesn’t land fully visible on the reels, you can benefit from the nudge feature which allows you to fill the reels with a mystery chest stack. 

If both features are triggered simultaneously, all red chest symbols turn to purple before the bonus starts.

Land three Shield symbols to receive a payout and also trigger the Free Spins feature. At first you will get 14 Free Spins but there are more spins to come during this mode. Bonus symbols landing on the three middle reels during this mode will be replaced by the crown symbol, and every crown will appear on the “meter” (right hand side castle tower). With three crowns, you will get an extra two spins, and the middle reels receive an extra position, bringing up the total number of ways to win up to a smashing 1125. You can go up to an even bigger number of ways to win – 1944 for four crowns, and 3087 for five!

Queen of the Castle Payouts

Lining up enough symbols returns multiples of the coin value, and starting at the lower end of the paytable, there’s the J, Q, K and A, each of which returns 4, 5, or 6 coins when they are on 3, 4, or 5 reels from the left side. Green and purple gems pay out 5, 6, or 7 coins, while blue or gold gems are worth 6, 7, or 8. Heading up in value, the throne (well, more of a posh chair actually,) is worth 6, 7, or 9 coins, and then we have the bag of gold coins, a corgi and the game logo on a banner, which pays you the top wins in the base game of 10, 15, or 20 coins.

Queen of the Castle Graphics and Sound

Queen of the Castle comes with clean and uncomplicated graphics, with gems and themed symbols join the playing cards on the reels. This video slot is fully optimised for mobile, so you can play on any desktop or portable device. Enjoy your gameplay with a castle set against hills and lakes, together with high quality animations and a relaxing soundtrack to accompany the spinning reels.
