Domnitor’s Treasure Slot Review

Now here’s a game that’s close to my heart. You see, my peeps hail from Hungary, which was next door to Wallachia in modern-day Romania. It’s also the birthplace of Vlad Tepes, a.k.a. Vlad the Impaler, or Vlad Dracula as he’s subsequently become known.

If you’ve been lurking about on Netflix, as I have, and you’re a fan of the Rise of Empires – Ottoman series, then Dominator’s Treasure slot from BGAMING could be the perfect compliment.

Gameplay

I said goddamn! Check out BGaming’s eye-poppingly detailed design! I’m already all-in with this slot and we haven’t even started. And that, game studios, is the response you’d get if you put in a bit of effort. #JustSaying.

This game is a follow-up to BGaming’s earlier version, entitled Dominators slot, and both are centered on a time when Romania was divided into three territories (Moldova, Transylvania, and Wallachia). That’s also why you’ll see Vlad accompanied by two other exalted types.

To the left of the 5-reel grid is a regal-looking figure above the Buy Bonus icon, and there are Jackpot elements above the grid (this is a Hold & Win game, after all).

If you wanna play on the go, then I’d suggest rocking in portrait mode. It effectively does away with the background and presents the grid in a large format, which makes playing on smaller screens a joy.

The Wild symbol is one of our pre-Romanian kings, and he replaces all symbols other than the Bonus and Coin symbols.

I’m excited to get into the flesh and bones of this game so let’s shoot through the stats real quick: 94.92% RTP, 25 fixed paylines, a high volatility rate, and a max win of €191,500.

There are no currency limitations, so feel free to play with the moolah you prefer.

Features

FREE SPINS:

Landing 3 Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 triggers this feature and awards a measly 5 spins. There are also giant Scatters available; pulling one of these will award an additional 3 spins. Oh, and re-triggers are unlimited.

BLAZING REELS:

Blazing Reels happen during the Free Spins round when reels 2, 3, and 4 combine to create a giant 3x3-sized symbol. In terms of payouts, it’ll pay as if 9 similar symbols appeared on the grid. Nice!

HOLD & WIN:

This feature requires 6 or more landed Coin symbols.

When the feature begins, you’ll mosey on over to a new screen where the grid is made up of the landed Coins, which are now sticky.

The open slots will be shielded by a portcullis (in other words, the steel gate that bars entrance to a castle), but if a Coin appears behind em, the Coin will take its place on the reel.

You’ll start with 3 spins, and additional Coins will reset this counter and also become sticky. At the end of the round, you’ll be paid out the sum total of all the Coins, the values for which can be 1x to 8x, 10x, 14x, 16x, 18x, 20x, 24x, 30x, or 100x your bet.

During this round, you could also land a Mini, Major, or Mega Jackpot. The latter is clinched when you fill all 15 spots with Coins, whereas you’ll only need to land Mini or Major coins to clinch those Jackpots.

BUY BONUS:

Spend 52x your bet to get into the Free Spins round, or 39.60x for the Hold & Win feature – and the latter is incredibly cheap!

Performance

I played Dominator’s Treasure slot even more than I usually would a game during testing, coz I really enjoyed it. And in all that time, I’m happy to report that I didn’t experience a single pain in the ass (Vlad the Impaler… get it?).

Maximum Win

While the max win is sweet – at €191,500 – the 1,532x max multiplier is weak. And it also means you’ll need to shoulder the burden of betting at €125 if you want a shot at the top prize. For those not fussed, you can bet from as little as €0.10.

Conclusion

It’s a resounding “yes” from me. BGaming has elevated this slot from its previous form, which I was already a fan of. And it looks absolutely stunning, which carries a lot of weight with me.

What I love about this game is that I can buy my way into the Hold & Win feature for a reasonable fee.

That’s what I was doing most of the time – alternating between Free Spins and Hold & Win thanks to the Buy Bonus. Look, it by no means guarantees that you’ll land a Jackpot or even that you’ll make a profit, but I fancied my chances better than just playing the base game.
