Another Asian inspired slot game has been released, this time by NetEnt, one of the best gaming providers out there. The 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 243 winning ways is called King of 3 Kingdoms and tells an amazing story. Although the game is not that rich in the features department, it does have good winning potential and will provide some decent payouts.
In the sea of many Asian themed slot games, only a few stand out. Some are unique for their features and some for the story behind them. In this case, the story is what makes the game stand out from the crowd. Everyone has heard of the historical novel “Romance of the Three Kingdoms”, if not this game comes as the perfect opportunity to find out about it. It is a beautiful story of a divided country that later comes into one. The Asians have one of the longest histories and many interesting events and stories to share. It is just refreshing to see that the providers used that to their advantage to create an interesting game.
The design of the game is quite simple with a flaming background symbolizing the king’s fight to conquer the kingdom. The reels have an interesting wooden design and fit well with the theme. The soundtrack is very mellow, just like expected from this type of slot. There are only a few cheerful sound effects present when a winning combination has occurred.
The symbols are fitted for the theme and include the regular royals as the lower-paying ones. The higher-paying ones are represented by the kings of the 3 kingdoms and warriors. The wild symbol comes in the form of a map of the divided kingdom and the scatter appears as a golden dragon statue.
The game will not disappoint with the payouts either since they go up to 1,500 times the stake in a single spin. The betting range is quite wide, with the minimum a player can bet set at 0,25 and the maximum at 125 coins per spin. The game has a 96,88% RTP which is quite a good offer. It also goes well with the game's volatility which is set at medium. The game is definitely one for the players that enjoy a relaxing game. This one will definitely not get boring too fast and is perfect for long term play.
The game does not have anything new to offer when it comes to features. As before mentioned, the game has a wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols in the game except for the scatter symbol. It helps the player out a great deal since it appears quite often. It can only appear on reels 2 and 4.
The second special symbol of the game is the scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature. It needs to appear 3, 4 or 5 times, which will award the player with 15, 20 or 25 free spins. When activated, drums and war sirens can be heard symbolizing the start of your battle. The free spins round comes with a x3 multiplier that is applied to all the wins. The feature can be re-triggered the same way as it was triggered in the first place, which means that the player can win up to 50 free spins. The x3 multiplier is not applied to the wins from the additional spins.
The game has proven itself as one of the better Asian themed slot games out there. It has a very interesting backstory which the designers made come to life in a very simple way. The design is basic but does tell the story through interesting little details. There are not that many features, but the existing ones bring in some satisfying payouts. Get ready to go into battle and come out victorious.
