Cash of Kingdoms Released by Microgaming
If you follow daily news in the online gambling industry, then you would know that Cash of Kingdoms was one of the most anticipated games this year. Microgaming announced this title back in February at the ICE Totally Gaming event in London. Their fans waited eight long months for the official launch, but it finally paid off.
In collaboration with Slingshot Studios, Microgaming built the game for exclusive use by their operators. This is the first game developed under the official Slingshot Studios name. However, their team had been formed over the past two years with veterans in the various fields of expertise required for this industry, such as designers, programmers, testers, managers, etc.
The structure of the symbol fields is five reels, three rows, and fifteen paylines. The paylines are fixed, so all 15 are activated in each round. Symbols are themed around medieval kingdoms with characters and objects such as warriors, mages, archers, dwarfs, thieves, swords and shields, magic books, bows and arrows, explosive barrels, and bags full of gold. There are five different characters along with five objects, each belonging to one of the characters.
A slot machine without bonus features would be hard to imagine nowadays. Cash of Kingdoms has two symbols responsible for activating all bonus rounds: scatters and wilds. A wild card acts as a substitute for all regular icons and can appear in stacks, while free spins activate super stacked wilds.
The Invading Wilds feature causes full stacks of wilds on reels 2 and 4, turning the reel right next to them completely wild as well, and winning from this event will double up your prize, but only during the Free spins. Three scatters activate ten free spins and pay 2x of the total stake.
The game’s betting range is from a minimum of 0.01 per line to a maximum of 32 coins per line, or a total of 480.00 of the currency you’re gambling with, applying a determined conversion, if there is one. The stake sizing panel is placed in a separate window, which can be opened by clicking the “Chip” button on the left side of the reels.
