Pragmatic Play has invited players on a night out like no other as Viking locals order flagons of ale in the studio’s latest slot title, Pub Kings, which offered random reel prizes to claim our Slot of the Week award.
Serving players a 5×4 reel game with 20-paylines, Pub Kings offers a maximum win of up to x5,000 the player’s bet while awarding random reel prizes when two or more scatters appear on the same spin. The game uses high volatility with an RTP of 96.08 per cent.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, commented: “Pub Kings brews up a blend of entertaining features and a light, jovial theme, complete with multifaceted mechanics that are easily understood making it perfect for player acquisition and retention.
“The game also offers more complex play with solid prizes in the form of exciting random awards and a buildable bonus round that ramps up anticipation to thrill and entertain even the most established players.”
The game’s scatter symbol comes in the form of a golden Viking, which can appear on reels one, three and five. If three scatter symbols land on these reels on the same spin, the progressive free spins feature will be activated, with players given 10 free spins.
Additionally, random prizes can be won throughout the base game when just two scatters appear at once, depending on the reel. Each reel offers seven different levels of prizes, but they are not always paid out when two scatters appear.
Reel one can award between x10 and x5000 the total bet, while reel two can provide between x6 and x2500. Meanwhile, the third reel can offer between x4 and x1500 the player’s wager.
Furthermore, reel four’s prizes range from x3 to x750 the total bet while reel five can offer between x2 and x500 the player’s preferred stake.
During the free spins around, each one of the high value Viking symbols is associated with a reel – purple with reel one, green with reel two, blue with reel three, yellow with reel four and pink with reel five – on a pub collector progress bar.
After every free spin, all instances from the screen of each of the symbols are collected on the associated reel.
Every time six of the same symbols are collected on one reel, the lowest prizes from that reel are highlighted. Every time three more symbols are collected, the reel increases by one level in its prizes, until it reaches the top prize at level seven.
Beers next to every symbol are gathered on the pub collector progress bar after every free spin too, adding them to the reel associated with it.
At the end of the free spins round, the symbol that has the most beers next to it rewards the player with the prize level it is currently at. If there is a tie between two or more reels, then the reel with the highest prize available is provided to the player.
