Royal Feast was released to Microgaming casinos on December 7th 2010. This 5-reel video slot features 15 paylines, wild symbols, and a unique free spins feature.
Free spins are triggered when at least two scatter symbols land left to right. You are awarded 5 free spins and the triggering scatter symbols are held for all 5 spins, paying each time. Only scatter wins are paid for these free spins, other symbols don’t matter. If another scatter symbol lands on any reel during those free spins, the free spin count is reset to 5 and that scatter is also held. This can repeat until all reels are held with a scatter on each one, at which time you would win the max payout of 15x your bet 5 times in a row.
I don’t recall seeing this type of free spin feature on any other Microgaming slot, and I’m pretty sure I’ve played all of them, though only a few spins on some that I didn’t care for. I didn’t have the best luck when I first played this slot, and it took forever to hit the free spins. After playing it a few more times, I’ve had better luck with some decent wins during regular play, but still had a tough time hitting the bonus.
I was playing this slot for fun today at Jackpot City, just trying to see how rare the free spins were. They are definitely hard to hit, but it tends to line up the symbols for decent wins fairly often to keep you going. After many spins I finally hit the bonus, and ended up getting 5 scatters to win over $300 on a $3 spin. So it is possible, just don’t bust out trying to get the bonus as it doesn’t seem to trigger very often.
Play Royal Feast today at any of these trusted Microgaming casinos.
