Let’s welcome the new video slot from Microgaming Castle Builder II. Microgaming and Rabcat have joined together again to create a remarkable sequel from the original Castle Builder. Players can return to the beautiful countryside of the Medieval town of New Forana. King Lornquer III will reward players as they move through the game. Building castles and helping to marry off his daughters is the objective.
There is a whole lot going on in this game so let’s get started. How does expanding wilds, free spins and wild symbols sound to you? This new game has it all. An entire new world is what you will discover in Castle Builder II. New unlockable levels as the player advances up to build 75 castles from materials collected within the 15 kingdoms. Players can choose from three avatars. Each has a different story line and a different feature.
Castle Builder II is a non progressive, 5 reel, 3 row, 15 payline video slot game. It has a medieval fairy tale theme. The player tries to build castles in this slot game. The materials that they will need are used as symbols on the reels. These include wood, granite and bricks and all must be collected as the game moves forward. The kingdom also has other treasures that players can find in the game such as a ring, a gold bar, and a chest. The largest jackpot in the game is awarded when 5x crown symbols are spun. The player also needs to find the King symbol during the game as it can substitute for all the basic symbols.
The scatter symbol rewards players with the free spins bonus round when 3 or more land on the reels. A 10, 15, or 20x free spins can be used if 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols are revealed during play.
The player begins at Bronze level where the player needs 6 building items to complete the pallet before a block is made. For players to move through this feature, they need to complete 9 kingdoms. Then they receive the silver cup which will then move towards Gold and Platinum as the player completes the game. However, the amount of items required to fill the pallet will also increase with each cup that the player is awarded. It will become 9x, 12x and 15x and the levels will prove harder to reach but the prize amounts also get higher.
Once the castle has been built, a royal wedding is held and all the princess’ friends will come to call. The higher the level that the player is at will decide how many male suitors appear to her. Then the player will choose who the princess will marry and receive a bonus prize from the king. Depending which one you choose decides a different prize.
The makers of this slot have really put a lot of effort into this game to be able to keep the player interested. There are many things at once going on, and you find yourself trying very hard to get thru the levels to reach the top. Hats off to the designers of this game, a job well done. There is a lot of talk about the game and its success, and now I see why.
