In times where the price of everything seems to be going up, it’s refreshing to find a game where you can enjoy living out a magical experience without it costing a small fortune.
Royal Unicorn is a slot that is big on prizes but low on budget so that no matter how low you like to roll, you’ll be able to afford to play. There are 5 reels and a maximum of 20 paylines although you can reduce these if you prefer to play on fewer. The betting on each line stretches between 1 and 5, giving a total min bet of 20 and a total max bet of 100. Of course, if you choose to reduce the number of paylines you could have an even lower stake to play with. Before you decide how much to wager, take a look at the paytable to find out what prizes you could win. This is always a useful way to gauge whether it’s worth betting high or low.
Like many of the other Amatic games, the paytable is interactive which means that the prizes change depending on your current level of bet. If you want to find out what you’d get for a different stake, change your bet and then re-enter the paytable. The following prizes are based on a max bet.
The beautiful unicorn is the top prize, and deservedly so, paying out 10,000 for matching five along a payline. This is the largest payout by a long way; the next biggest is the royal princess but she only pays out 250, a small prize by comparison.
As well as being the biggest win on the board, the unicorn is also the wild symbol, giving you an extra way to line up matches. However, there’s a whole host of extra features too, some of which offer some truly magical play.
Many Amatic titles offer a bonus round which is made up of free spins, and Royal Unicorn is no exception. But there’s some extra features included in this slot which make it feel more like a proper bonus play, and not just a few free spins. To unlock the bonus you’ll first need to spin three on the main reels. These will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 but you don’t need to worry about paylines; these symbols count no matter what position they land on.
But before your seven free spins begin, the unicorn has a special trick to show you. In a piece of enchanted play, a special multi-stack symbol will be chosen. During the free spins this randomly selected symbol will take the place of the flower, crown, princess and castle. Once the free spins begin, you’ll discover the full benefit of this multi-stacked symbol as you can fill the reels and scoop huge prizes in just a few turns.
Playing for More
If you enjoy taking a risk or two, you could try to nab even more prizes by using the Gamble feature which appears every time you win on the reels.
A standard game, which is used by many developers, you’ll have to predict either the suit or the colour of the next card to win. A game of chance, you’ll have to be lucky to win this game but if you guess correctly you could walk away with up to four times your prize! You can bet with either your whole prize or just half, and if you win the gamble you can either collect your increased win, or gamble again.
Gentle but Addictive
There’s something almost soothing about Royal Unicorn by Amatic, with its beautifully created fantasy world. But it’s not just about aesthetics as there are some huge prizes on offer here, despite the low volatility. Small payouts will hold the interest with the possibility of scooping big wins too, particularly in the bonus feature.
