Throughout history, Kings have never really been known for their philanthropism or generosity. Images of cruel men ordering beheadings and declaring war seem to be the common conception. But that’s all about to change. Meet King Cashalot – the protagonist of the incredible progressive online slot from Microgaming, available to play at Ruby Fortune. He has more wealth than he even knows what to do with, and is more than happy to let you win a share. Let’s take a gander behind his castle walls and see what he has in store for you!
King Cashalot is a 5x3 reel slot with 9 paylines and the opportunity to win big! The straightforwardness and simplicity of most progressive online slots allows you to focus less on flashy transitions and more on the jackpot. King Cashalot, however, is still magnificently illustrated with comical characters and a host of delicious foods, fit for royalty. Symbols include roast turkey, fruits, a juicy looking ham and a tantalising fish dish for the low symbols, while the high symbols are governed by a royal family, including a princess, a knight in golden armour, a queen and King Cashalot himself.
His symbol acts as the Wild, substituting all symbols except the Scatter (royal jester) and Bonus symbol (a golden dragon). The latter is one that you certainly want to land 3, 4 or 5 of on the reels, as this will trigger the Treasure Bonus sub-game. Here you have the opportunity to select a prize from a treasure chest. If you’re happy with it, you can keep it. If not, you can discard it and try for another one (which may or may not be higher than the last, so choose carefully!) The key to landing a whopping jackpot is to land 5 King symbols across any of the first 8 paylines.
You’re guaranteed a base jackpot of 15 000 coins! Get 5 of him on the 9th payline and the progressive jackpot is yours! As with all progressives, this jackpot can be an incredibly high number, owing to the fact that a percentage of every wager placed goes into the ultimate prize pool! Another reason why betting at max bet is a good idea!
It’s fun, it’s comical, and it offers the chance to walk away with an incredibly large jackpot. While some players may rue the lack of a Free Spins feature, King Cashalot more than makes up for this with the Treasure Bonus and its slick, straightforward gameplay. It’s a no frills, no fuss experience. So put on your best shoes and prepare to meet the King and see what he has in store for you!
