Golden Princess is a popular online video slot game produced by Microgaming. The theme of the game is based on the ancient Aztec culture where gold played a major role in their society. In this game players delve into the mysterious workings of the Aztec world and the royal families that controlled it all. The backdrop to the game is a golden temple structure on which the reels have been superimposed. The graphics and animation are lively and entertaining, and combined with the sound effects, work together to make a simple but enjoyable slot game.
A 5 Reel Aztec Themed Slot
The slot machine in Golden Princess is based on the standard Microgaming slot setup of 5 spinning reels with 25 paylines in which players can form winning combinations. In this game, players can choose to play from 1 payline up to the maximum of 25 on each spin. Aside from the standard slot machine, the game also includes a number of bonus features in the form of a wild symbol, scatter symbols and a free spin bonus round. On the reels, players will find a host of Aztec inspired symbols including the Princess herself, an Aztec warrior, a jaguar and a panther. For the lower paying symbols, Microgaming have used the standard set of high card symbols that have been decorated to blend into the theme of the game.
The Free Spin Bonus Round
The scatter symbol in Golden Princess is the treasure chest symbol. This is the main symbol to look out for as it is the key to unlocking the free spin bonus round. To trigger the bonus round, players must land 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The more scatter symbols that trigger the round, the more free spins are awarded up to a maximum of 30 free spins for all 5 symbols across the reels. The scatter symbols themselves also act as bet multiplier giving players up to 10x their bet stake when appearing on the reels.
Multiplying Wild Symbols
The wild symbol in this game is the Golden Princess game logo symbol with the pyramid in the background. The wild symbol can be used to substitute for any of the other standard reel symbols in order to form a winning combination. In the base game, the wild symbol also acts as a multiplier on line wins. When the wild symbol is used to create a winning combination, the resulting win will be multiplied by 2x or 3x the bet stake.
The Golden Princess Gamble Feature
In Golden Princess, players get an additional chance to win with the game’s gamble feature. After standard line win, players can choose to gamble their win and stand a chance of doubling or quadrupling their money. In the gamble feature, players must choose the correct colour or suit of a playing card that is drawn from a shuffled deck. If players correctly guess the colour of the card, they will double their win. If players guess the correct suit of the playing card drawn, they will quadruple their winnings. If players do not guess correctly they will lose their line win from that spin.
