May 2019 marks the release of a set of new slot titles from Playtech, the world’s biggest supplier of online gaming and sports betting software. The company tapped into Rarestone Gaming’s portfolio to release the Sky Queen Slot from the Fire Blaze series. The new fiat and Bitcoin slot game, together with more titles coming up, explores ancient and cultural themes from around the world.
Sky Queen is the very first slot from the said series. Introducing the launch of this market, James Frendo, Casino Director at Playtech, explained what Fire Blaze is all about: “The Fire Blaze suite offers something genuinely fresh for even the most seasoned players, with each new game featuring a different second feature to further encourage players to try every release. At the same time, ancient culture themes are perennially popular, further widening the appeal of what we believe will be a long-term successful brand.”
Themes and Designs
The software provider emphasized on a theme that resembles South America. At a glance, you can see that it promotes the style of the Incas and other ancient civilizations in the region. The background is set against pyramids and jungles. In front of them, the Sky Queen slot interface opens up its gameplay of five reels, three rows, and 50 paylines. The slot has fixed paylines, but players can play from 25p to £500 a spin on all devices, including Android and iOS.
The symbols are very simple, but they are tied to the Sky Queen and the South American culture. The Sky Queen herself serves as the wild symbol, so she can replace all symbols except the scatter and the Sun. She only appears on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. The Sun symbols give out exciting prizes and jackpots when hit. Other symbols that can multiply your stake include the 10 royals, dragon head statues, Aztec head masks, and leopards.
Features and Bonuses
When it comes to features, one of the first ones you can trigger to prolong the game is the Free Games feature which offers free spins and payouts 1, 10, or 50 times your original stake. This opens up when you get 3, 4, or 5 temple scatters anywhere on the reels. If you want to earn payouts much bigger than that, strategize to get as many Sun symbols as you can to win the Grand Jackpot worth 2,000 times your original stake.
When luck is on your side and you always get low-value symbols in the base game, you still have a chance to get the Fire Respin feature and earn cash value awards. You can earn 3 spins for every round.
