The Wombat says: We’re back in familiar territory Wombat fans with Solar Queen slot from Playson. And that territory is Ancient Egypt, you know the land of Book of Gold Classic slot and Play’n GO’s Book of Dead among others.
But (and it’s a big ‘but’), it does offer a pretty bonza bonus feature called Flaming Frames – but more on that later. Grab your shovel, it’s time to dig for long lost Pharaoh’s riches!
Solar Queen Slot Look and Feel
The background to your reels is made up of palm trees and pyramids in the distance while your game play is presided over by some pretty flowers and a lake – a must for those sweaty days spent searching for gold…
The graphics are bright and colourful while the spin soundtrack will transport you to Ancient Egypt in a jiffy. Well done Playson!
Solar Queen slot has 5 reels, 4 rows and 20 paylines. That’s the same number of paylines as as 9 Mad Hats slot from Triple Edge Studios.
A nice simple set up compared to Nolimit City’s Tombstone RIP slot which is all asymmetric.
Spin from 0.20 to 100.00 gold coins per go.
Your reel icons include the Solar Queen herself (who can appear stacked on the reels), the sun symbol plus birds, eagles, leopards, lions and Anubis and Horus all done up in gold.
The burning Wild is wild and will substitute for all other symbols to help form winning combinations (except for the scatter). It only appears after the full 10 Solar Spins have finished and only in a space where the sun icon landed. But more on this below Wombat Fans…
Last but not least, the game’s Scatter symbol is the scarab beetle and will land on reels 1,3 and 5 only during the base game.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Flaming Frames and Solar Spins Now – this all sounds a bit complicated – but you’ll soon get the hang of it.
The game play in Solar Queen takes place in cycles of 10 spins (there’s a meter at the top of the reels) – and every sun symbol that hits the reels during the spins will add a flaming frame around that reel position.
On the tenth spin all hell breaks loose, and those flaming frames positions will all become wild, which can lead to some pretty chunky wins.
Win Multiplier During the base game every time the sun symbol lands in spot that already contains a flaming frame, the win multiplier at the top of the reels by x1. It will go up to maximum of 10x your bet level.
But, even better, during the Free Spins round if a multiplier was active when the round was triggered, that same multiplier will be active for the whole bonus!
Free Spins Land 3x of the scarab scatter symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the base game and you’ll trigger off the bonus. Now, 10 Free Spins will be yours and any of sun icons that hit the reels will immediately become wild and then stick in that same position until the bonus spins ends.
This means a sticky wild bonanza – awesome!
Solar Queen slot is very playable Wombat Fans – and gives you a slightly different game play experience with that spin cycle mechanic. This Wombat loves the Flaming Frames feature. It’s also nice not to have to rely on the Free Spins round to keep the game interesting…. It’s a must-spin!
