Quickspin is known to put a lot of effort into the visuals of their slot creation. On this occasion, they used again the 3D engine we got to experience on Nero’s Fortune, resulting in an authentic medieval castle siege complete with catapults and fearless warriors on both sides. The grid is resting on a stone block and framed by crowned columns. At various points during the gameplay, stunning 3D animations will provide some intense moments with battle axes and fireballs hitting the grid, all to a dramatic soundtrack.
The pay symbols start at the low end with forged card royals from J through to A, awarding 5x to 7.5x your bet for clusters of 12 or more symbols. They are followed by eagle, tiger and lion masks as well as the crown as top symbol. Hitting 12+ cluster will pay 15x to 250x your stake. A burning block marked with ‘W’ is the wild, substituting for all regular pay symbols while a gunpowder barrel acts as the scatter.
Crown of Valor Slot Features
Quickspin impressed us last year with an intense reel battle in 3D on Nero’s Fortune, combining tumble mechanics, random wilds and progressive multipliers in a highly volatile grid slot. They are following that up with an even more volatile castle siege on the same grid size but with new modifiers and features. Not to forget, a vastly increased win potential of over 15,000 times your bet.
The Tumble Mechanic capable of delivering multiple wins within a single spin sequence is still at the core of the gameplay. At the start of each round, 25 symbols blocks tumble onto the 5×5 grid. To score a winner, you will need to land clusters of minimum five matching symbols connected horizontally and/or vertically. Any symbols that are part of a combo are slashed and the empty positions refilled with new symbols. The spin sequence continues as long as new winning clusters occur after a tumble. All wins are accumulated and paid at the end of a round.
So far, so good! All pretty standard for a grid slot. Let’s take a look at the extras that all have the potential to substantially boost your wins. to start of the battle for the castle are Burning Wilds. They can land at any time during a spin sequence, plus, one will be guaranteed to tumble onto a random reel with empty positions after a winning cluster is removed. Every time a Burning Wild is part of a winning combo, the win multiplier will increase by x1 in the base game and free spins, no limits. The total win from the tumble is calculated only once the multipliers have been awarded. In the base game, it will reset between spins. There is more though, keep on reading.
While storming the castle, keep an eye on the Wild Fire Meter to the right of the grid. Every winning tumble in the base game will increment it by +1 with a total of 18 needed to trigger the Wild Fire feature. The meter will increment by one per tumble only irrespective of how many winning cluster land in a single tumble. Once unleashed, a stunning animation sequence in 3D will set off the battle catapults, throwing fireballs onto the grid. Four will land on random positions and turn into wild symbols. Progress on the meter is saved separately for every bet size and between play sessions. It will reset after every trigger.
Having three, four or five scatters in view by the time a spin sequence concludes will trigger 10, 14 and 18 Free Spins respectively. Any landing during a free spin will add +1 free spin, no limits. During the feature, the win multiplier starts at x1 and increases by x1 after every winning tumble as well as by x1 for each Burning Wild that is part of a win. It will not reset until the end of the bonus round.
Crown of Valor is a gorgeous slot creation with some stunning 3D animations and intense soundtrack. The gameplay including the various feature are as volatile as any good castle siege, some are won but many are lost. The rewards for successfully storming the walls are though well worth the fight as they peak at just over 15,000 times your bet.
