Royal Spins from IGT: Slot Review - a slot of regal proportions!
Fruit machine based slots have grown in popularity these last few years as software developers have noticed that players enjoy a bit of old-school action when playing slots. This latest release from software developer IGT is no different and to add a unique twist to the fruit machine theme, the game is set in medieval times. So get ready to act all regal as you spin the reels in this slot and hopefully bag a royal fortune in the process!
Royal Spins is a 5 reel slot game with 5 paylines that includes Free Spins and a Cherry Bonus feature.
In keeping in touch with the fruit machine theme, the game only has 5 reels, there is no Wild symbol, and line winnings are paid from left to right as well as right to left. This layout is quite intentional as it makes things nice and simple for players when they load up the game so they can get spinning immediately.
The game features a nice range of fruit machine symbols such as Cherries, Bells, Oranges, and Red Sevens. Make sure to keep an eye out for the Red Seven symbol as it is the highest paying symbol in the game. Land 5 of these symbols on an active payline and you’ll be awarded a wonderful payout of 1,000 coins.
The Scatter symbol is illustrated by a golden crown and if you land 3 or more of these symbols on consecutive reels then you will trigger the Crown Bonus Game. In this neat little game, you’ll be awarded 10 Free Spins and you can also retrigger even more Free Spins when 3 more Scatter symbols appear on the reels during this feature. It is possible to get up to 20 Free Spins in this game. The Scatter symbol does not only offer Free Spins but cash prizes too. For example, if no Scatters appear during a spin then you’ll receive 1X your stake, 2 will give you 6X and manage to land 5 then you’ll win a king's ransom of 200X your bet!
As you play the game you will notice a cherry meter just below the reels. This is the Cherry Bonus meter. It fills up each time you land a 5-of-a-kind Cherry line win. Manage to fill the meter for highlighting all 5 cherries and you will win the progressive jackpot! Each time a Red Seven symbol appears in a winning line, the progressive jackpot’s cash prize will increase.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The graphics are crisp and nicely detailed. The slot is set inside what looks like a medieval courtyard and is filled with sold grey walls and a purple silk curtain. Symbols are a nice wink and nod to fruit machine slots and are comprised of Red Sevens, Liberty Bells, Oranges, Plums, Crowns, and of course Cherries. The animations are decent as symbols move sleekly up and down the reels and they sparkle and flash brightly whenever you land a win.
The music is bouncy and playful with soft piano beats and slow electro sounds. It complements the retro theme of the game rather well.

Royal Spins is created by IGT and it's a fun and simple slot to play. The Bonus features of the game keep the excitement levels ticking over nicely. I really enjoyed playing the Crown Bonus feature as you are guaranteed wins on every spin thanks to the very versatile Scatter symbol. It is also great you get to visually see how close you are to landing the Progressive Jackpot with the Cherry Bonus feature. I found this game to be of Low variance so you will find that you won’t be waiting too long until you score a win across the reels.
