As you know, Yggdrasil is a very popular slot provider that creates videoslots with beautiful designs and exciting features. Their games can be played at loads of online casinos. But did you know that an online casino can also request a slot exclusively for them? Via Yggdrasil White Label Studios, the game providers can create special slots on request, that will then exclusively be available at that particular casino. One of the biggest advantages for the online casino is that Yggdrasil whitelabel slots will always stay exclusive. Whilst many other slot providers will offer the created slot to other online casinos after a certain time has passed, Yggdrasil’s exclusive slots will always and only be available at the casino that requested it. The very first exclusive Yggdrasil whitelabel game, the Royal Family, is now live and can be played at LeoVegas.
As big time Yggdrasil lovers, we were very curious about the Royal Family and had to take a look for ourselves. To be honest, we didn’t know what to expect since it’s their first exclusive. Thankfully, the game holds up to the same standard we’ve grown to know and love. The Royal Family is a beautiful videoslot with five reels and four rows, making it slightly larger than the average slot set-up. The slot has 25 fixed paylines, which pay from left to right. So far it seems pretty normal and nothing out of the ordinary. The theme of the slot, as the title suggests, is a medieval royal family. The background shows a beautiful castle and you will come across typical items you might expect in such an environment such as knights helmets, house banners, crown jewels and members of the sovereign family itself. Although we did expect some special features, the Royal Family slot has gone above our expectations.
Although it’s the first Yggdrasil exclusive whitelabel slot, the Royal Family’s base game is anything but boring. It’s filled with four low and four high win symbols, the high win symbols being represented by the highborn royal family members. No royal court is complete without its own jester, which functions as a Wild symbol and can replace all regular symbols. The fifth reel also contains a treasure chest. When it lands on the reels it will open up, and five golden cards will be displayed on the screen. Click on one of the cards to reveal the hidden prize. During the base game the treasure chest is filled with coin wins between 100 and 2500 coins. You can also win between 8 and 24 free spins. Another interesting features this game has to offer are the feature prizes. These are collected during the base game, and then activated during the Free Spins. There are 12 feature prizes in total. Each reel has 1 Rare Prize, and there are 7 common Feature prizes. You’ll have to collect 2 Feature Prized on reel 1 to activate 8 Free Spins, in which the collected features will be activated. The common Feature Prizes are 1-3 extra Free Spins, 1-3 starting Wild symbols, or 1 low pay symbol will be removed from the Free Spins reels. The rare Feature Prizes that are connected to the reels are:
- Reel 1 | Sword feature – 2 extra Free Spins, multiplier x2, 2 starting Wilds;
- Reel 2 | Crown feature – wins are multiplied x4;
- Reel 3 | Golden Egg feature – 2 extra Wilds will be added at the start of the spins;
- Reel 4 | Necklace feature – 6 extra Wilds will be added at the start of the spins;
- Reel 5 | Key feature – 9 extra Wilds will be added at the start of the spins;
When three or more Free Spins symbols land in the base game, the door to the majestic castle will open and you will be invited in. You will receive a royal welcome with 8, 16 or 24 free spins depending on the amount of Free Spins symbols landed. During the free spins, the royal family symbols can turn into Wilds after each spin. Once the reels stop spinning, each high paying win symbol will flip around and may or may not turn into a Wild. If it does turn into a Wild symbol, it will stick to the reels until the end of the Free Spins. The treasure Chest is also present on the 5th reel during the Free Spins. The prizes it contains vary from the ones during the base game. You can win 1-3 extra sticky Wilds, or 2-4 extra Free Spins.
