Novomatic are experienced in creating fantasy games, so this one looks very similar to others of its ilk that you may have previously played. Set deep within the forest, a long way from outside intruders, there’s just the gentle dappling of sunlight breaking through the tree cover.
But of course, there’s also the bewitching glow of amber and pink coming from the depths of the woodland which betrays the fact that this is no ordinary clearing.
And although you can’t see too much of the setting on the background, the true nature of your environment becomes clear on the reels. As well as the elven princess with her pointed ears and ethereal glow, there’s also a unicorn tossing its magnificent mane. You’ll find an eagle and a fox accompanying this magical duo, as well as other woodland accoutrements such as toadstools and leaves. Completing the set is the letters representing high value playing cards.
Spin to Win
Playing on 5 reels, there’s a total of 40 paylines but these can be adjusted if you prefer to play on less. The minimum value of the coin per line is just 1.00, giving an overall minimum bet of 40.00 for playing on all the paylines. If you want to go high, you can place a total max bet of 8000 by increasing the coin value to 200.
Be guided by the serene beauty of the elven princess as she guides you through the forest and on your way to collect plenty of prizes.
Surrounded by such natural beauty, it almost feels rude to think about riches but you’ll find some seriously big prizes listed on the paytable.
Other than the unicorn which pays out for a match of just two, all of the other symbols on the board require a match of three or more to register a win. The more winning combinations you line up, the more you’ll be eligible to claim. You can get more than one prize per turn, but only one per payline.
The playing cards are at the lowest end of the board with a prize of 4 for matching three and 80 for matching all five. This compares to the elven princess, which is near the top of the board offering you 2,000 for matching five and 20 for matching three.
As well as the regular symbols it’s possible to get a little extra help to collect prizes, courtesy of the scatter.
It’s the top value symbol on the gameboard, handing out a whopping win of 4,000 for anyone who lands five. However, as a scatter it also awards free spins too.
If you manage to land three or more scatter symbols you’ll receive not only 15 free spins but also a x3 multiplier on any wins. And during these free spins, keep a watchful eye out for the crystal ball. If you land this, you’ll get a further 15 free spins making a grand total of 30.
Of course, it’s the progressive jackpot that everyone really wants to win but to be in with a chance of nabbing the highest prize you’ll need to be playing at a max bet. But if you are, and you also land 20 of the elven princesses during your free spins you’ll trigger a payout.
A Regal Experience
Elven Princess, the online video slot by Novomatic takes the player through a magical journey in the woodland, accompanied by some delightful characters along the way. There are some extras on the reels such as scatters, multipliers and free spins but there’s not a full house as there’s no bonus feature to enjoy. However, unlike many games there is a progressive jackpot which is a real incentive for anyone looking for the top prizes. Needing to spin 20 elven princesses to win, it’s not an easy prize to claim, but that’s not unusual for a jackpot.
It’s another good title from Novomatic, even if there’s nothing here that’s particularly groundbreaking.
