I’m not entirely sure I see the link between royalty and unicorns. Maybe princesses are supposed to ride them? As far as this Amatic slot goes, the title is more a description of the types of symbols you’ll see on this otherwise generic 5 reel video slot. There are 20 win lines, and 2 different ways of getting a big win in this game. You can win up to 100 times your total bet in regular play from each line, and hit multiple wins together via the stacked symbols. In the free spins game you’ll get a special wild (also stacked) which can bring a lot of wins at one time.
While the symbols are detailed and nicely drawn, the overall look of this slot is a little on the dated side. The outside of the reels is a mauve colour, with gold writing as the logo. The reels have a shaded purple background. The most detailed symbol is the head-shot of the unicorn, which is framed in a golden chain and shows a flowing silver mane. There is also a castle (strangely blue), a mystic looking female and a lavish golden crown. You will also see an orchid, which for me does not really fit with either unicorns or royalty… there are some basic animations, including 9 symbols turning into one giant one if you get them together (including wilds). Sounds are short bursts of computer tunes which fit the theme in general – combined with the usual Amatic whirrs, beeps and ticks.
Setup and Play for Royal Unicorn
You can select from either 20 or 10 paylines for this game – with stacked wilds in play, I always choose the full 10 and adjust my bet sizes down as applicable. Those bets can go from just 1 coin per line up to 50, giving you a 20 to 1000 coins betting range. If your trusted online casino operates in dollars, this would be 20c through to . You can use auto-play (called auto-start) and you can also gamble wins on the flip of a playing card if you wish.
The single biggest line prize is for the unicorn symbol. Lining up 5 of these gets you 100x your bet amount, with 12. Unicorns are both wild (they substitute for all of the regular symbols) and stacked (they can cover entire reels). Many of the other wins seem small by comparison. What you need to keep in mind is that you will often hit these 5+ at a time, balancing the lower payments nicely.
Regular symbol pay-outs include the mystical woman (2. You’ll find coloured playing card symbols making up the smaller wins.
Bonus symbols are golden blocks with the word bonus on them. You need 3 of these on the middle reels to trigger the free spins bonus game.
Royal Unicorn Free Spins Game
Before you start the 7 free spins, you will go to a screen with all of the unique symbols in a circle around a nicely produced picture of a unicorn. A box rotates around these, coming to a stop to select your multi-stacked symbol for the bonus game. This then becomes wild (substituting for the flower, crown, princess and castle) for the bonus game.
Once you start the spins you’ll see that multi-stacked wilds come in a lot, sometimes covering large proportions of the reels. This can generate a lot of wins. This feature can be retriggered during play for 7 more spins with 3 of the bonus symbols.
