Enter the Solar King slot
Solar King is the third in the series from the game developers at Playson and follows on from Solar Temple and Solar Queen. Whilst it features an Ancient Egyptian theme that you will have come across in other games, this slot takes things a little further and is complete with modern graphics and a number of features that you will not want to miss out on. If you think that you are ready to accompany the Solar King keep reading.
Theme & Design
As stated above the theme is one that has featured in numerous games, but Playson always manage to out their own unique stamp on things. This game will take you on a journey to Ancient Egypt and the main character is none other than a pharaoh from the time. Another symbol that is pivotal to the game is the sun and then there is the Bird of Ra which is both the games wild and scatter. The final symbols you will come across are the stacked Pharaoh, Bastet, Horus, a bird, and the top Royal playing cards. The game is excellent in terms of the design though how it will be received amongst the competitors only time will tell.
Solar King plays out over 5-reels, 4-rows and 20 pay lines offers a return to player that stands at 95.45% which is slightly lower than average. Unfortunately, the top jackpot is not that impressive standing at just 2,221x your stake, some players will be more than happy with these statistics although I do not think this is a slot that the high rollers will be that enamoured by. When it comes to choosing your bet the range here is wide which could draw a few more regulars with the minimum being just $0.20 per spin and the maximum $100 per spin, therefore technically the jackpot would be a humungous win of $222,100.00 which I certainly would not mind winning. The final statistic to mention is the volatility which is high and when it comes down to it the slot relies on the scatters, wilds, multipliers, and free spins, which to be fair is a great tally of features.
Bets & Winnings
As mentioned earlier you can place your bet from $0.20 per spin up to $100 per spin and varying amounts in between. You get to choose the amount from the options the developer makes available. Whilst the rewards are decent as this slot is highly volatile you would think that they could be a higher amount on offer.
The first major symbol is the sun, and this is due to the interesting mechanic that it activates. When it appears on your reels it determines the Flaming Frames feature and triggers it where you will see a countdown start. There is a frame that forms where the Sun has landed and this stays in the position for the next 10 spins, and once this ends it is transformed into a wild. In this feature you can land multiple wilds all together but once this has featured once, it is all reset.
If you get the sun symbols on a position where there is already a Flaming Frame and the multiplier then increases further. This can trigger several times until the Flaming Frame turns into a wild at the end of the 10-spin cycle. If things go your way you could possibly land wild multipliers of up to 10x your stake.
The final feature is one for you to take full advantage of, there are 10 free spins, and these are provided as the reward when you land three scatters on your 1st, 3rd, and 5th reels. If you get even luckier and the Sun symbol lands in view and you will then get sticky wilds in their positions and these are then present for what is left of the feature.
The Solar King from Playson is a great deal of fun to play and worth a spin or two. If you are at least a little curious about the main features and the progressive wild multiplier that you can work your way towards you need to at least give the slot a try.
This is the latest 2020 release, and it uses the extremely familiar surroundings of the Ancient Egyptian god of the sun, Ra. With the playing format that brings a set of wild symbols which are activated every ten spins, and the Solar King who provides you with consistent excitement to the base game whilst also offering a free spins bonus feature.
With the interesting base game feature, you can land some good returns which keeps the gameplay engaging. If I am honest the return to player could have been better but with everything that the slot offers it makes up for any misgivings.
Personally, I would rate Solar King the slot as a 7/10 and would be more than happy to recommend this to beginners and experienced players alike.
