Fancy some golden chances at some fantastic cash prizes? It’s all possible with Golden Castle, the latest of the cluster pays online slot machines you can find at our casino site. But hold on just a second, as this isn’t just another cluster pays slot, but instead introduces a system called the Titan Ways mechanic seeing large symbols bulldoze their way down the reels when win reactions occur. Looking for some online casino bonuses? This slot offers the chance to activate a free spins feature and also sees 20,000x your bet as the maximum win. Let’s request the gates be dropped and enter the Golden Castle for a closer look.
Fantasma Games is the iGaming studio that created Golden Castle, and it must be said that this stable is gaining a reputation for releasing visually rich and unique slots online in the UK. With this release, they've gone for the royal theme, which is obviously quite popular in the world of online casino games due to the wealth associated with royals. You can find slots here such as The Sand Princess as well as Sky Queen that went for the same effect. With Golden Castle, there is a cluster pays set up, so instead of symbols lining up to form a winning combination, they simply fall in clusters. There's also the cascading reels element, so the winning symbols will be removed whenever a win happens, and new symbols will fall in. This can result in multiple consecutive wins.
Something that makes Golden Castle unique is that the large square symbols will crush the thinner ones under it when part of a win reaction. This means more space in the reels for new icons to drop in when a win reaction is underway.
The most you’ll be able to win, with the assistance of bonus play, is 20,000x your bet. That isn’t bad at all, especially if you happen to be wagering the maximum of £50. Most players won’t be going that high, and therefore the wagering limits have been set as low as 20p. You can play slots free here, too, and Golden Castle is one of them if you would rather have a go in demo mode.
As with all cluster pays slot machines, there isn’t a selection of beautifully themed symbols. What you’ll find is a bunch of gemstones that consist of 3 square ones, 3 octagons and 4 gems that have golden casing around them. The gems with the gold casing are the higher paying symbols and the ones you really want forming clusters.
You’ll see three extra icons falling at times in the game. There’s the blue or gold king as well as the gremlin looking fellow.
Getting straight into the juicy details, the Wild Haunt feature is the first of the two bonus features up for grabs. This bonus gets triggered when either the blue or gold king lands on the reels. You’ll notice that the majority of icons fall as 1x1, although some are longer, taking up more rows, while there are also 2x2 and 3x3 icons. The effect of the Wild Haunt feature is that it breaks 2x2 and 3x3 icons into 1x1 icons of the same symbol, leading to easy wins.
The creepy looking guy is actually a phantom, and landing 3 of these symbols on the same spin triggers the Phantom Free Spins. No matter how many of these icons triggered the feature, you can only receive a maximum of 10 free spins. However, there's an increasing multiplier for every consecutive win of 1x. So, if you achieve five successive wins in free spins, you'll have a 5x multiplier added to that win.
The Titan Ways mechanic isn’t too dissimilar from all the cluster pays slots with cascading reels that we’ve seen through the years, although the ‘Tetris’ style of the icons landing and being removed through wins is quite entertaining. At its core, Golden Castle is one of the better online slots in the UK you’ll find this month and could see you rake in a majestic amount.
