Rating: 4.8

Kingdoms Rise is a new series of fantasy themed progressive jackpot slot games by Playtech that take gamification to the next level.  All three games can be played from 10p a spin.

How To Play Kingdoms Rise

Although there are three different games in the first batch of Kingdoms Rise games, they are all linked via the Map and via the Kingdoms Rise shop as well as being connected to the same progressive jackpots.

Kingdoms Rise

The Jackpots

The games have three linked progressive jackpots, all of which can be won on any spin in any of the base games (the higher the stake, the more likely they are to drop)

  • Epic Jackpot – a wide area progressive seeded at £100K and with no upper bound
  • Power Strike Jackpot – guaranteed to drop before it reaches £2000
  • Daily Strike Jackpot – guaranteed to drop at least once a day, before midnight


The Kingdoms Rise Shop

As you play, you collect Game Tokens from the reels (but only if playing with cash, not bonus).  These are pooled in the Kingdoms Rise shop regardless of which game you collect them on. You start with 50, and the cheapest thing in the shop costs 300.  Pending Game Tokens are also collected (one for every 2 Game Tokens) and are stored in the shop – they can be viewed by clicking on “info” just below the tokens total as in the screenshot, and are released all in one go when your total of pending tokens reaches 500.

Kingdoms Rise Feature ShopThe shop, which can be accessed from any of the games, contains a selection of bonus features for all three games that do not occur naturally in the games and can only be accessed with tokens.  Purchased bonus features are played at a stake level based on the player’s historical average stake across add Kingdoms Rise games.

Let’s say you like the Sands of Fury base game best but aren’t mad about the Sands of Fury shop bonus features – no problem, you can use the tokens you collected playing Sands of Fury to buy Wild Vortex for Guardians of the Abyss or The Night Owl for Forbidden Forest instead.

Game Tokens are valid for 6 months so you may even wish to save them until the next game in the series is released (going by the Coming Soon sign on the map, it will have a snowy setting).


Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury

Kingdoms Rise Sands of Fury is a 20 line slot with a desert setting.  It has the best RTP of the three by a small margin, coming in at 96.23% including the jackpot contribution and game tokens.

Base Game Bonus Features

Wild Fury starts when a character wild lands on the reels.  There are five character wilds, one for each reel.  The feature reel, which is a single space immediately above each reel, becomes active and does one of 4 things:
Kingdoms Rise Wild Fury

  • Swords & shield – locks all instances of that character wild in place for the next spin
  • Character symbol – – turns all instances of that character into character wilds
  • Respins – awards 5 respins with locked wild
  • Chain – ends the feature, all wilds released in the next spin

Wild Fury can last a long time and produce big wins especially if other reels become involved as well (as in the screenshot where feature reels 1, 3 and 5 are all active).

Shop Bonus Features

The Queen’s Ritual – 300, 750 or 1500 tokens

Kingdoms Rise Queens Ritual

This pick me round with cash prizes varies from a straightforward (and boring) three picks at the 300 price point, to five initial picks with multipliers, extra picks and “win all” added to the prizes at the 1500 price point.

The Wild Beast Respins – 500, 1000 or 2000 tokens

This awards 5 respins with locked wilds.  The difference between the price points is in the number of active positions – 1 on reel 4 or 5 at the 500 price point, 3-5 at the 2000 price point.


Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss

Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss is a 25 line slot with an underwater setting.  Its RTP is 96.09% including the progressive jackpot and game tokens.

Base Game Bonus features

The Guardians Bonus is a free spins bonus round which comes in three flavours; which one you get, how many free spins are awarded and the power level of the feature are all determined by means of a pick me with the shell scatters that trigger it.

Kingdoms Rise Guardians Bonus

Odeon: adds extra Odeon symbols (the highest scoring symbol) to the reels each spin.

Akali: adds extra wilds to the reels each spin

Jax: applies a random multiplier to all wilds

Shop Bonus Features

Wild Vortex – 300, 750 or 1500 tokens

The Wild Vortex lands somewhere on reels 2-5, spits out a number of wilds and triggers a respin.  After each respin each wild is pulled one position towards the vortex and the respins continue until all the wilds have been swallowed.  The difference between the price points is whether one, two or three wilds are spat out.


Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest

Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest is a 576 way slot played on a 5 reel array: the outer two reels have three spaces each and the rest four.  It has RTP of 95.99% including the jackpot contribution and assuming the use of Game Tokens.

Base Game Bonus features

The bonus feature in this game is the Owl Respins.  One Owl awards 2 respins, two owls award 4 respins and 3 owls award 12 respins.  In each case the triggering owls change to roamings wild for the duration of the respins (but this is subject to the rule that neither a wild nor an owl can land on reel 1).  Extra respins can be triggered by the appearance of a feather on reel 3.

Kingdoms Rise Owl Respins

Shop Bonus Features

The Night Owl – 300, 750 or 1500 tokens

This feature awards 3 respins similar to the owl respins in the base game, but the owls are stacked not independent – one stack of 2 at the 300 price point, one stack of 3 at the 750 price point, and 2 stacks of 2 guaranteed to land on different reels at the 1500 price point.  The feather can appear to add more respins – 1 or 2 at the 300 price point and 1 – 4 at the other price points.

The Kingdoms Rise games can be found at Playtech casinos and other sites with Playtech slots including many Virtue Fusion bingo sites.
