Get ready for a Castle Siege as you travel back to the Dark Ages in the new Quickspin game, Crown of Valor Slot.
Trebuchets, Knights and fierce and deadly battles are imminent, can you hold out long enough to breach the walls of the castle and take the treasure inside by force?
Crown of Valor Slot looks to be high action and high excitement.
This new game has used the same 3D engine that Nero’s Fortune did, and you’ll see that the similarities are quite apparent when you load up the game.
Crown of Valor Slot has absolutely gorgeous graphics. It’s hard not to appreciate how much thought actually went into the design of the game when Quickspin made it.
The reels are situated on the wall of a Castle, with Siege Towers, Arrows, Soldiers and a gloomy sky.
There isn’t much uplifting about the theme of Crown of Valor, but it’s not meant to be. Everything is indicative of a ferocious battle, and you can’t help but feel like you want to pick up an Axe and get stuck in.
Betting options in Crown of Valor slot are plentiful, covering a wide range of options so that everyone may take part in the battle.
The lowest option here is £/€0.20, with the highest option at £/€100. There’s lots of options in between the two as well, so there’s really no complaints regarding betting options.
The top symbol Crown of Valor Slot is represented by the Crown Symbol, which is prominent compared to the other symbols in the game.
Other high paying symbols include the Lion, Cheetah and Eagle, and low paying symbols are A, K, Q & J. There’s also a Burning Wild symbol, which substitutes for all except Scatter
Crown of Valor slot is a 5×5 game that utilises a cluster pays mechanic.
To form a win, you need at least 5 or more symbols that connect either horizontally or vertically. Winning combinations will disappear from play, followed by a tumble which brings in new symbols via a cascade. Winning tumbles also increase the multiplier by +1
This introduces the possibility of more winning combinations, and it’s made even more likely by the Burning Wild.
Every time there is a tumble, a Burning Wild will fall into play. Any burning Wild involved in a cluster win will also increase the multiplier by +1.
To the right of the screen there is a Wild Fire Meter. To fill this you need only winning combinations, with every tumble adding +1 to the progression of the meter.
You need 18 tumbles in total to fill the meter.
When the meter is full, the Wild Fire Feature will ensue, which places 4 Burning Wild symbols at random places on the reels.
To trigger Free Spins, you need at least 3 Scatter symbols, but more will award you extra spins.
In Free Spins, the multiplier does not reset between drops, and tumbles and winning Burning Wild combinations will once again increment the multiplier by +1.
The possibility to go big here is helped massively by the persistent multiplier, but it’s sad to see that the Wild Fire Feature that was present in the Base Game has been excluded from the bonus,
Nonetheless, Crown of Valor Slot is still capable of big things, and to make it even better, any Scatters that land in play during the bonus will also award an extra spin.
Players outside of the UK have the option to buy their way into the bonus. The cost for this Bonus Buy is 80x your stake.
The Theoretical RTP for the bonus buy is 96.48%
Crown of Valor Slot is an exciting game, and while it has many similarities to Nero’s Fortunes, there are a lot of differences at play.
Quickspin has made the annoying feature of multipliers hiding behind the symbols redundant in this game, making it much easier to increase your increment, and as a result Crown of Valor Slot is capable of much higher wins than Nero’s Fortune was, with a maximum potential of 15,500x
Crown of Valor Slot is a high variance mountain to climb, and some may not be up to the task.
You’ll need to fight tooth and nail in the siege of your life, and many will come out bloody and bruised with little to show for their efforts, while others will emerge victorious, with all the treasure that the castle has to offer.
Crown of Valor Slot is an upcoming game from Quickspin that is due to release on most New Casinos on the 09.03.2021
