Features of Castle builder
The value of the coins range from $0.01 to $1. There is a way to reduce the original value of the lines but it is not advisable for players who want to win more. The maximum jackpot a player can get is 20,000 credits. The Symbols in this game are consistent with the theme. There are kings, queens, princes and maids. There are bags of coins, vault doors and chests too. The wild symbol is the symbol representing the builder. It can replace any other symbol.
The most important symbol is the building materials. Other than earning the player rewards like the rest of the symbols, it also helps to build the castles. When two or more building symbols appear on the reels, it adds to the castle. More symbols mean materials of a higher quality and hence a castle of higher value. There is a display next to the reels that tracks the progress of the castle being built together with a bar graph that shows the quality and the quantity of the building materials
The fun does not stop at building the castles. The whole point of building the castles is to attract suitors. The player selects the best suitor. Each suitor has a different credit reward. The value of the suitors is determined by the value of the castle. The higher the value of the castle, then the higher the value of the suitors. Their values are not revealed before the player choses them. When the newlyweds move into their new home, the process of building another castle begins. The game then moves to new kingdoms with bigger and better castles.
Besides the credit rewards, completing a castle also earns the player an achievement badge. There are also other bonuses and badges that the player gets for completing certain castles.
The game has three kingdoms each of which requires ten castles. There is also an empire requiring five castles. The player can view the map of the region in between spins and track their achievements and their already completed castles.
Castle builder Overall
Castle builder is a very interesting game. It does not take long to finish building one castle and one is tempted to keep playing and proceed to the next level. Because of the low betting range, castle builder is pretty much accessible to many players. The paytable might be a little bit disappointing for the player but the theme is quite interesting. The kings’, queens’, princes’ and princesses’ characters appear real and have personality, as opposed to other games where only boring card appear on the reels. The game is one of the best no doubt and was even shortlisted for a game of the year award in 2014.
