Game description

Royal Family Slot Machine (Yggdrasil)

Royal Family SlotRoyal Family is the newest release by Yggdrasil having hit the casinos in February 2020. I got the chance to play this slot game and it seems like one of the best releases they have had in a long time.

Royal Family is set on 5 reels and a total of 25 lines. Using its best features, the game can deliver wins of up to $20,000.

Among the features that I came across on Royal Family are scatters, free spins, wild symbols, multipliers, feature prizes, and some sticky wilds.  

Betting And Prizes

A game round can start with a minimum of $0.10; however, if you are a risk-taker, and are not afraid of huge spending, you are allowed to spend up to $200 per round.

I noticed that most of the high prices I got were delivered by the Royal Chest feature. This feature has the potential to offer you as many as 2,500 coins or $20,000.

Other smaller wins can be boosted with the help of multipliers.

RTP wise, Royal Family offers 96.10% which is within the normal range for a modern slot.

Royal Family Slot Features

The slot game has common and unique features. One of its unique features is The Wild Joker.  This feature appears on the slots reels during the free spins.

For the free spins (these can be 8, 16 or 24), the slot requires you to land the Gold Trophy scatter three to five times.

The game mentions some extra and these include the Feature Prizes. If you can manage to get at least two on the reels, they will remain active for the whole round of the free spins.

Apart from the 8 free spins, you will also be rewarded with 3 starting wilds, extra free spins, low paying symbols will be removed, and you can also get up to 4x multipliers.

The other scatter appears only on reel 5. However, you only need to land it once and it will be in a position to award you.

When on a paid spin, this scatter can give you huge rewards of 2,500 coins or 8 to 24 free spins.

Theme & Design

For the theme, Yggdrasil has borrowed heavily from The Royal Court.  You get to see a few characters on playing cards which are marked by A (Knight), K (King), Q (Queen) and J (Prince).

The cartoon decorations enhance their look, and they are not your usual classics.

Quality-wise, Yggdrasil has given its all, and the slot has some of the best designed cartoon-style graphics that I have seen.

Actually, the design resembles a Pixar animation movie, and the graphics are well done.

Through the reels, you will notice a small portion of the slot’s background. This is decorated with an image that resembles a castle, and there is also a golden helmet and a number of crown jewels.


For a long time, Yggdrasil has been developing slot games that are quite boring. Actually, it’s been long since I enjoyed a slot from this developer.

However, with the Royal Family, you will be in for some thrill as the slot is so much fun and exciting to play.
