Off to the Indian continent we go for this glamorous looking slot from Microgaming. There are many sensational looking Indian palaces and that is illustrated in this game. Only by the symbols though because they are so large that there’s just a purple background which is a bit of a lost opportunity I think. There is some animation involved with the necklace symbol so that’s something to look forward to as it’ll mean you will just have had a good win.
This is a five-reel slot that has just the nine pay-lines on its three rows of symbols to try and get some wins from. Those nine pay-lines are a fixed amount so you don’t have the worry of working out how many to activate. The minimum cost of playing this game is €0.25 and the maximum €18. High rollers won’t be too interested in this game. For the rest of us, It should be no problem at all finding a level we can comfortably play at.
Sultans of Spin
The symbols in this game include a Sultan who has a turban full of jewels, a gold necklace that also has a blue sapphire, ornaments in the shape of tigers and elephants a blue and gold jewellery box, some gold coins and the Ten to Ace playing card symbols.
It’s the blue sapphire symbol which is the wild in this game. This can substitute for other symbols and that can help you get plenty of winning combinations. There’s no multiplier attached to the wins though.
The wild is unable to sub for the scatter symbol which is the gold key (there’s a fair bit of gold in this game). It hasn’t got a bonus game to trigger which is pretty bad news but any scatter wins are added to other wins you can get. Five of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels pays 50x your stake. That brings up some more animation with a door being opened.
Having just broken the bad news about the lack of a bonus game, here’s some better information to tell you. The payouts in this game are pretty impressive with the Sultan awarding you with 10,000x your line bet if five appear on a pay-line. Four of them win you 500x so keep an eye out for it. The elephant will have you packing your trunk for a holiday if five appear and give you a 1000x win. It’s 900x for five tigers, 800x for five jewellery boxes and 700x for five gold coin symbols. Even the playing card symbols pay out huge amounts with five Aces winning you 600x your bet and 300x for the King.
With the lack of a bonus game, this certainly isn’t one of the most complicated five-reel games you’ll be playing. That’s not too bad news because if you are fairly new to playing slot games, this is a perfect introduction and there’s the chance to win some big prizes too. Have a stay at Treasure Palace before moving onto more complicated games with bonus rounds, multipliers etc.
Even though it isn’t that complex, don’t forget to look at the paytable. That’ll show you how much all those winning combinations pay and explain about the wild and scatter. Have some free games too in order to see how this all plays out. The operating buttons are all down the bottom of the screen so it’s easy to set your stake and spin those reels.
This has the look of the earlier Microgaming slots with its large symbols and lack of complexity. It has a good look to it but if you are expecting some Indian themed music on the soundtrack you’re in for a disappointment. It’s easy to understand and there are some big wins on offer to make up for the lack of a bonus game. Definitely worth giving a go.
