King of Slots pokie review

Net Entertainment have released another great addition to their catalogue in King of Slots. At first glance King of Slots may seem like a pretty generic online slot. The King of Slots character looks a bit like a doodle someone in the graphics department cobbled together amid the 11th hour of a deadline. But once you look deeper and actually have a decent spin on King of Slots you begin to see that it is more than meets the eye.

How to play

King of Slots is a 5-reel, 25 payline pokie that you can play for free or real money through any of our promoted online casinos.

This might sound weird, but I think this Net Ent slot is aimed at hipsters because it feels as though the regular factors of this game are done “ironically”. The graphics are old school or “classic” at best, with the cartoon of the King of Slots looking like a quick doodle while the symbols on the actual slot itself don’t really offer anything original.

On top of that the background music can only be described as elevator or call waiting music.

Despite all of this, King of Slots is actually a really enjoyable slots title thanks to the Sticky Wins feature during general play. Unlike most games, where a feature like this would strictly be reserved for free games, King of Slots has rolled it out through the entire game.

Any time you spin up three or more winning symbols, those symbols “stick” in place while the reels spin – for free – again. Any winning symbols that add to the already “sticky” symbols remain. These spins continue until you either fill the playing screen with winning symbols or don’t add to your winning combo.

Symbols

The playing symbols in King of Slots are very standard and could almost be referred to as retro. Some might go so far as to say that some of the symbols don’t really match the theme of the online slots game at all. Several pieces of fruit are odd symbols. Again though, I feel NetEnt are being ironic and retro with this game.

In descending order of value the symbols are the crown, watermelon, lemon, cherries, Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10.

The wild symbol is a blue gem that substitutes for every symbol except the scatter purple gems symbol.

Feature

Triggering the feature on King of Slots is a little different to a lot of the other online slots available on the market today. Any three scattered purple gems symbols triggers the sticky re-spin. To trigger free games you need at least five scattered purple gems symbols. The more symbols you collect, the more free games you win.

  • Five scatter symbols triggers 10 free spins.
  • Six scatter symbols triggers 15 free spins.
  • Seven scatter symbols triggers 20 free spins.
  • Eight scatter symbols triggers 25 free spins.
  • Nine or more scatter symbols triggers 30 free spins.

Not only do you score free spins during the King of Slots feature, but all wins are tripled during your free games. This matched with the sticky wins feature allows for a maximum win of 750,000 coins.

And yes, the feature can be re-triggered during free games.

Our verdict

All in all King of Slots is full of contradictions. From the seemingly rushed sketch of the main character to the elevator background music and random fruit symbols. All of these oddities paired with the sticky win re-spins in general play and possibly 30 free spins with all wins tripled creates a really fun, retro and quirky playing experience.
