Royal Wins Slot Review
In my mind, London is a city with 2 identities: One embodies by the traditions of trade, commerce, and the Royal Family. The pomp and circumstance that go with, together with the history and nostalgia. Prim and proper. The second identity is embodied by the anthem cry of punk rock band The Clash. “London Calling” is an apocalyptic, anarchist view which still holds true for youth today. So basically it's the posh hobnobs and the rebels. I don't have the money to be highbrow, so when I visit London, I certainly fall into the second category. In fact I lived there for a couple of years and had many pub crawling nights fraternising with soccer hooligans, that ultimately, would lead to some fights. To my credit, I never backed away from a rumble. The reason behind that is that I had a 6 foot 5 wingman who was built like a brick outhouse. I'm not glorifying violence here, if anything, I'm demonizing alcohol – why would anyone fight someone who could snap them like a twig? I'm reminiscing because Booming have brought out a video slot called Royal Wins that makes London it's focal point. It's a bit more clean-cut I remember the city, but my memories came flooding back nonetheles. Royal Wins can bring London to you anytime, whether it be on a P.C, mobile device or tablet. Whatever your experience of this great dame of a capital, Royal Wins will make you want to return with its iconic imagery, music and background.
Royal Wins has a medium to high volatility with 5 reels and 20 paylines. The symbols all scream “London”: Big Ben (wild), Double-decker bus (scatter), 7's with the British flag, Royal Guard Underground sign, umbrella, and raincloud. The wild can replace anything except the scatter. All the symbols are neon and the controls blend in nice with this aesthetic. At the top are View Pays, Info and Turbospin. On the side is Line selection while on the bottom are Total Bet, Balance, Autoplay, Spin, Bet Max, Gamble and Win amount. It's neat and user-friendly.
After each winning spin in regular play, you get to bet your profits on a double or nothing pick bet where you either choose the raincloud or the umbrella. A single reel spins and if it stops on your choice, you win. If not, your profits are lost. 3 or more scatters anywhere activates 10 Free Spins which are re-triggerable. Your total of Free Spins are displayed on a counter and when this feature concludes, your winnings are paid out.
5 scatters wins a Bonus Jackpot of 400 coins!
Blimey! Royal Wins performed well on all performance tests. Nuff said, yeah? (Sorry for the lingo – I put my sentence into a cockney slang translator!) I loved the crisp, clean and vibrant graphics. I did, however, find the sound effects a bit “tinny” and while the music set a nice tone, I would have preferred The Clash!
Whether you're a scrubber like me or the upper crust of society, Royal Wins have loads of appeal. It might be purely because I re-triggered my Free Spins numerous times, but I loved this slot. So, London's calling you – are you going to answer?
