Solar King Slot (Playson)
Playson seems to be developing a genre here when you consider that the slot has previously released titles like Solar Queen, and Solar Temple. Their latest one is Solar King, a title that uses inspiration from the Ancient Egypt-theme.
Having tried the previous two releases, I was attracted to the new free slots release, and here is my unbiased review:
Solar King offers 20 lines on its 5x4 reels setup. Playson has used the usual features here, and they include free spins, scatters, wilds, and multipliers.
Betting and Prizes
Solar King allows as little as $0.20 per spin, while the highest amount that can go to each spin is $100.
The highest amount that the slot pays per spin is $222,100 or 2,221x the stake. Although that amount may look like it’s a lot, it is important to note that Solar King is a highly volatile game, which means riskier to play.
The RTP of the game is 95.45%, and this percentage is relatively low, especially when you consider that it’s below the industry’s average of 96%.
Solar King Slot Features
One of the major features on this slot is the Sun icon. It triggers a very interesting mechanism which is the Flaming Frames feature. At this juncture, a countdown begins.
Once the Sun lands, the slot will form a frame that will stick around for the next 10 spins. Finally, it will be transformed into a wild.
To increase the value of the multiplier, you will need to bring the Sun icons to the same position with a Flaming Frame. The process can increase the multiplier by as many as10x.
Then there are the free spins that you can trigger via the scatter symbols. With at least 3 scatters landing on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels, the slot will reward you with up to 10 free spins.
If the Sun icons appear on their positions, the sticky wilds will show up for the rest of the feature.
Theme & Design
Playson has not given us any special theme and design, as the developer has used the same old Ancient Egypt story. The main character on Solar King is one of the pharaohs.
The other notable symbol is the Sun, and Playson has used while the Bird of Ra as the icon to represent both the wild and the scatter.
Other symbols include the Bastet, stacked Pharaoh, a bird, Ra, as well as the Horus. The Royals will be present to indicate the low-value icons.
The quality of the design and the graphics are quite impressive, but this niche is already overused, so maybe other slots offer better quality designs.
Solar King is a fun slot from Playson, and it is more fun if you are looking for a fun slot to play.
I love its main features, and particularly the progressive wild multiplier which works pretty well in boosting the wins.
However, Solar King offers a very low top jackpot and its RTP does not help things either.
It is a great slot but one that I find more appealing to casual players.
