Royal Dynasty – New and Exclusive Novomatic slot
Energy Casino has just added a new another new and exclusive Novomatic slot to their casino titled Royal Dynasty.
Royal Dynasty uses the regular 5×3 reel layout and comes with all the design and sounds you would expect from a Novomatic slot, this slot release, however, has a couple of interesting features separating it from their other slots.
Firstly, the slot comes with 20 paylines as opposed to the more common 10, and the base game features 2 different Scatter symbols the “Prince” and “Princess” which can both trigger the main bonus round, there are also special “King” wild symbols which double wins in the base and bonus games, and this features even more heavily during the bonus round.
Royal Dynasty Slot Base Gameplay
The main focus of and win potential of any Novomatic slot is mostly contained within the bonus rounds and Royal Dynasty is no different. To trigger the bonus round you need to land 3,4,5 of the Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, and with this slot, since there are 2 different Scatters this can either be the Prince or Princess symbols.
Once the bonus round is triggered a random amount of free spins are awarded and this can range from 25 up to 45 free spins, and of course, you can re-trigger this during the bonus round too granting another random selection of free spins to be added to the remaining total.
Check out the short promotional video below which showcases the special symbols King Wild, Prince Scatter, and Princess Scatter during base gameplay.
Although the slot is rated a 5/5 volatility rating by Greentube we found that it felt to bit a little more forgiving in play than the really high variance slots such as Book of Ra Deluxe and Garden of Riches, but as with all Novomatic slots, they are generally much more volatile slots than other developers.
Royal Dynasty Slot – Bonus Round
With up to 45 free spins on offer for the initial bonus trigger as well as plenty of re-trigger potential, the number of free spins that can be played out during this bonus round can be quite insane, or record so far is well over 100 with just 3 re-triggers, so if you are fan of plenty of free spins then this slot should definitely deliver in that respect.
The main mechanic during the bonus round are the special King Wild symbols, which double any wins that land on the reels, to boost this further during the bonus the Scatter symbol that did not trigger the initial bonus will also act as a wild symbol when it lands on the reels.
The 5 of a kind pays are fairly average for a Novomatic slot, but these do scale up massively for the premium symbols such as the King Wild and Scatters, which lands on the reels much more frequently during the bonus rounds, with a maximum 5 of a kind win being 500x during the bonus for a King Wild payline.
Definitely not one of our favourite releases, although we will probably go back and play it a couple more times just for the sheer amount of free spins and re-triggers that can be won during the bonus round, but we much preferred the super high volatile and sticky wilds bonus round of Garden of Riches, which again you will find at Energy Casino.
Royal Dynasty comes with an RTP (Return to Player) of 94%, which in our opinion is a little on the low side, generally, we would expect 95% or more from an online slot, so bear that in mind whilst playing.
