I’ll admit that I was a little bit sceptical about playing Queen’s Day Tilt when I saw that it only has three reels. Many people already know that I’m not such a fan of three-reel slot games. However, this Play’n Go slot offering takes the whole idea of this genre and inserts a nice amount of special features into it, ensuring that it’s infinitely more appealing on the whole. Combining this with the high-quality graphics of the game and the overall theme, Queen’s Day Tilt is something that will entertain anyone who plays it.
Main Game and Paytable
As noted, the slot hosts three reels and three rows of a layout, although it doesn’t have any specific win lines that run across this setup. Instead, you form wins by matching two or more of the same symbol in a row, horizontally or vertically. You’ve got the chance to change around your wager in the game, simply by selecting one of the preset amounts at the bottom of the reels. These run from €0.10 up to €100.
The game has had some great graphics integrated into it, but then again, I didn’t expect anything less from Play’n Go. The theme is very nicely incorporated too, with an impressive background leading to intriguing symbols on the three reels. The playing card suit symbols are first, with the heart and the spade able to pay out up to €200. Then come three symbols of shields with different images on them. The one with the lion on its front can provide rewards of up to €500. The highest paying standard symbols are of two different knights though, which can give you wins of up to €800.
A wild symbol also exists in Queen’s Day Tilt, which is of the queen herself. She will substitute for any other standard icon on the reels, giving you better opportunities of forming wins.
A couple of my favourite parts of this slot are the randomly triggered specialities. There’s the “The Ruler” feature, first of all. This can occur on any non-winning spin and will place a random wild symbol on the reels. The other feature is Tilt, which can happen if just a single symbol remains on the reels. This symbol is removed automatically to activate the free spins round.
Speaking of free spins, this can also trigger if you manage to clear the grid of all its symbols through forming wins with them all. No low-paying symbols will appear during the free spins feature and a multiplier starts out at times two. If both knight symbols appear on a spin, then the multiplier will increase by one. Clear the grid again and you will re-trigger the free spins round.
Finally, my overall favourite feature of this slot is the Game of Accession. When you win in the base game with both knight symbols, this round begins. A single free round with only high-paying symbols in view will activate. You need to predict which of the two knights will emerge as the victor of the game, with this being determined by whichever knight created the most winning symbols during the free round.
I have to admit that I’m a little bit enamoured with Queen’s Day Tilt from Play’n Go. It’s one of those slot games that just works well. Then again, it is a Play’n Go game, so nothing less should be expected of it. The slot is a very fun three-reel offering and the visual side of it makes it even more attractive.
