There’s a decidedly retro feel to Novomatic’s bright 4 Reel Kings, a sequel to the well-liked Reel King slot. And this latest offering is certainly a game fit for royalty!
You can expect symbols of portly kings, colourful characters that look straight out of Alice in Wonderland, plus familiar fruit icons, played over a five-reel, three-row format with 20 set-in-stone Paylines crossing the resels in different directions.
But there’s a crucial twist – all the spinning action happens on not one but four sets of reels, each of which can land you up to a whopping 50,000 coins. Bear in mind that each real is separate and not connected to any of the others.
Celebrate landing winning combos to a quirky popping sound – and enjoy this game across all mobile devices.
How to play
Play between one and 20 lines for up to five coins a line and an optimal stake of 100 coins.
The symbols in 4 Reel Kings add to this game’s traditional look and feel, and include cherries, plums (the lowest-paying icons at 200 coins each) and bags of gold, plus lucky number 7’s (2,500 coins), alongside the standard playing-card values with the ‘face’ cards J, Q and K.
Match symbols from left to right, and if you fill a reel set with bags of gold, you hit the jackpot sum of a majestic 10,000x line wager.
4 Reel Kings special features
The Wild – a jester’s hat – pops up only on Reels 3 through 5. As ever, it replaces all other symbols to help create winning combinations. The kings themselves are the Scatters.
Reel King bonus
This one pops up at random following potentially any spin, and you’ll see up to five of the tubby Reel King characters, who have the power to grant you up to 500x total sum wagered. At least one of the slot reels opens up across the original ones. And the thing will keep spinning until the wins stop.
Look out for the 4 Reel Kings letters above the reels. If you manage to illuminate the words 4 Reels in four spins, that also launches this bonus round.
This is a test of skill, and if you want to you can gamble all your wins here. Double your winnings by stopping the light on the next rung of the bonus ladder – and keep going until you decide to collect your winnings.
Return to Player (RTP)
At 94%, we have to say the RTP or Return to Player is a little on the low side. Try and make up for that with some nice wins.
While much of what 4 Reel Kings offers is standard slots machine fare, having four separate reels definitely adds interest and sets this game apart from the norm to give you four times the fun!
It is potentially lucrative but equally seems suited to those of different budgets and varying levels of playing experience. Give it a whirl in demo mode before parting with any hard cash, and see if it’s your crowning slots glory.
