Not too many online slots are themed on real, historical events but occasionally we get to try something like Battle Royal – it’s based on Henry VIII and his six wives, it’s developed by Play N Go and it features several clever bonus games.
Battle Royal is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; a carved wooden frame contains those reels and we’re treated to some medieval lute music to accompany our gameplay.
The six high value symbols are Henry’s wives – Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr – while the lower values are playing card symbols in blue, red, orange and green.
Henry is wild and he will replace all others to help form winning combos except for the shield scatter symbol; Henry and the wives all appear stacked on the reels.
Landing the shield scatter symbol on reels one and five on the same spin will trigger the bonus and offer one of two features to the player:
- Free Spins – awards unlimited free spins with a guillotine above each reel; on each spin a guillotine will drop and if a wife is below it she will lose her head, becoming a wild symbol for the rest of the round. The spins end when all wives have been beheaded. Select the correct wife at the start for an extra prize.
- Long Live The King – select from the chests available to find prizes and perhaps a key to help you escape with a win multiplier; if a ghostly wife catches Henry the round is over.
On any spin all playing card symbols may be transformed into matching ones to help out with a win.
Battle Royal is certainly designed to Play N Go’s usual high standards but it also offers some historical perspective and features based on real events; highly recommended – give it a go!
