If you thought that the battle with those hideous Orcs ended the day when Gollum fell down with the One Ring into the depths of Mount Doom, boy are you mistaken!
Those miserable beings are back and once again they are about to face their old enemies – humans, elves, dwarves and sorcerers.
No, this is not the latest sequel of the famous Lord of the Rings trilogy, this is Novomatic’s newest release, called Kingdom of Legend, featuring five reels, four rows and offering 40 fixed paylines.
For a starting price of 20 coins per spin, gamers can benefit from the Orc Bonus feature and the Bonus Wheel feature, both introducing possibilities for hefty payouts, regardless which of the sides will win this epic battle.
Professor Johann F. Graf founded Novomatic back in 1980, and in the beginning the company from Austria specialised in producing slot machines for land-based casinos across Europe. Today, Novomatic covers more than 70 countries throughout Europe, Asia and America, and are considered to be the largest manufacturer of slot machines.
With the purchase of Greentube in 2011, the company bought Greentube, entered the iGaming industry, producing more than 250 video slots, out of which Sizzling Hot, Book of Ra and Dolphin’s Pearl are considered to be the most popular ones.
How To Play It
Since the 2016 release offers 40 fixed paylines, gamers only need to set the desired bet somewhere between 20 coins and 10,000 coins per spin, and they are ready to enter the epic battle. On one side, you will have the Elf, Knight, and the red-bearded Dwarf, representing the forces of good, as well as high-value symbols.
The Sorcerer is there to guard these forces with his magic, but also to substitute for all regular symbols. As for the playing cards, they merely represent low-paying symbols. Two parts of Bonus Wheel represent Scatters that trigger the Bonus feature.
Land at least two matching high-paying symbols on an active payline, starting from the far left reel, if you tend to start winning payouts.
To make playing cards symbols pay, you will need at least three of them. To activate the Autospin option, gamers need to press and hold the Spin button, then set up to 100 automatic spins, as well as the win and loss limits.
The Novomatic title offers two different special features, the first one being the Orc Bonus.
Occasionally, during the base game, you might hear the Orc coming, and once he appears, this dreadful creature will award you with bonus cash prizes up to 500 times the initial bet, or with the chance to try out the Bonus Wheel, with a single swing of his sword. Not bad for a villain in the story! Look for Orcs after every non-winning spin, since that is only when they might decide to appear.
We already mentioned two parts of Bonus Wheel, which serve as Scatters and may appear only on reels 1 and 2 or 4 and 5. In order to trigger the Bonus feature, you need to match the two parts of the Bonus Wheel either on reels 1 and 2 or 4 and 5.
Gamers are then taken to another screen where they will spin the Bonus Wheel, which might land on up to 10 free spins, or instant cash prizes which cannot be higher than 30 times the initial bet, or, on the Super Wheel field. This activates the Super Wheel which carries a maximum possible reward of 1,000 the triggering bet.
The good thing about the Bonus Wheel is that you get to spin it more than once, and you leave the feature the moment the Bonus Wheel stops on Collect.
As we said earlier, the maximum possible prize is set at 1,000 times the initial bet. In order to compete for this payout, you need to spin the Super Wheel.
Although disgusting, Orcs are pretty generous in the Novomatic product, due to the fact that they can reward gamers up to 500 times the bet. As for high-value symbols, try to match 5 Elf symbols on a payline, because it pays the most.
All of you action junkies hungry for adventure better prepare yourselves for another epic battle, since this clash of good and evil might keep you chained down to your seats for hours, thanks to these exciting and rewarding additional features.
Novomatic really went the extra mile regarding the visuals, since the 2016 release houses crisp graphics and a kickass soundtrack.
While testing the game, we really had plenty of luck with triggering the Bonus Wheel, while the Orcs were not very eager to show their ugly faces on the screen. Even so, we had plenty of fun playing the Kingdom of Legend slot.
