Play gave SlotBeats the hangover it deserved with its latest slot release Pub Kings. This game sent players on an alcohol-fuelled Viking bonanza, winning our Slot Of The Week award.
Pub Kings is a 20-payline, 5×4 reel slot game that offers players the chance to win up to 5,000 times their bet. Random reel prizes are awarded when two or three scatters appear in the same spin. The RTP is 96.08 percent. This game has a high level of volatility.
Irina Cornwallides is the Chief Operating Officer of Pragmatic Play. She commented that Pub Kings is a perfect blend of entertaining features, with a light and humorous theme. It also has multifaceted mechanics which are easy to understand, making it ideal for player acquisition and retention.
The game offers a more complex gameplay with exciting random awards, a bonus round which can be built up to increase anticipation and thrill even the most experienced players.
Scatter symbols in this game are golden vikings that can appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. Three scatter symbols landing on these reels in the same spin will activate the progressive free-spins feature, which gives players 10 free spins.
Depending on the reel, you can also win random prizes throughout the base-game when two scatters show up at the same time. There are seven levels of prize payouts on each reel, but not all of them will be paid when two scatters show up.
The first reel can offer between x10 to x5000 of the total bet. Reel two can give between x6 to x2500. The third reel offers between x4 to x1500 of the wager.
The prizes on reels four and five range from x3 up to x750 of the total stake, while reels two and three can award between x2 up to x500.
Each of the high-value viking symbols are associated with a specific reel. For example, purple is associated with the first reel, green with the second reel, blue with the third reel, yellow with the fourth reel, and pink with the fifth reel.
All symbols from the screen are placed on the reel associated with each free spin.
The lowest prize from a reel is highlighted when six symbols of the same type are collected. Each time you collect three symbols, the prize level of the reel will increase by one level.
After every free spin, the progress bar for the pub collector will also show the number of beers next to each symbol. These are then added to the reels associated with the symbols.
The symbol with the most beer next to it will reward the player at the current prize level. The player will receive the highest possible prize if there is a tie among two or more reels.
