Fantasy Realm Slots

Fantasy-RealmFantasy Realm is a game designed by the guys from Cryptologic. The fantasy theme seems to be incredibly popular, but more so since the first of the Lord of the Rings movies has appeared. Elves and all the other races of fantasy are now in mainstream use, much more so than before. We get a fairly typical story with elf queens, warriors, dragons and magic, each one represented among the symbols, in one way or another.

Cryptologic has used the usual recipe in Fantasy Realm, creating a 5 reel slot machine that has as many as 25 lines active during each spin. A $100,000 prize is the motivator they chose to use for players to sign-up, along with some interesting graphics and a full range of features, from scatter and wild symbols, to multipliers and free games.

Features of Fantasy Realm

As this company usually does, they’ve implemented plenty of good features in Fantasy Realm, so you are free to enjoy both the modern wilds and scatters, along with the free spins rounds and the multipliers that so many slots award these days.

The Centaur scatter symbol is one of the two important characters with special roles. The role of a scatter is to give away prizes whenever multiple symbols of the same type (matching Centaurs) are on the five reels, no matter in what position that happens. You can get a scatter on the 2nd reel and another two on reels 4 and 5 for example, and you would still get the associated prizes. They start at the value of the bet for two scatters, and the highest one is worth 200x the bet for five scatters. That kind of wager multiplier means up to $100,000, the largest prize available inside.

Elf Queen is the wild in this game, so it manages to be a useful presence when it appears. Unfortunately, it’s not as powerful in Fantasy Realm as in other games, allowed to show up on reels 1 and 5 only.

Free Games Feature

When you have the wild (Elf Queen) on both reels it can appear on (1st and 5th) and during the same spin, you receive access to a free games feature. 25 free spins are awarded, with a x2 multiplier doubling all the prizes. You can also retrigger the free spins, with the same two wilds.


Betting options and jackpots

Fantasy Realm seems to be the kind of slot machine that can be expensive to play, but only if you allow it. You can expect to get smaller payouts if you use coins with value of just $0.01 (minimum), while the best ones will require the maximum value of $20. When you decide to maximize your wager, you can end up with $500 per round.

The 3,000x multiplier offered by the top jackpot combo applies to the line wager, so you can receive up to $60,000 in exchange for that large bet. It gets better if you look at the scatter symbol, as its 200x multiplier is applied to the total bet, and as such it takes the prize to $100,000.

Four Movie Mayhem progressive jackpots are also available, all of them displayed on the left side of the slot’s screen. They can reach fairly large amounts, but the game has no direct connection to them, being all awarded at random.

Design and symbols

The design actually looks like it’s taken from a magical realm, with the fantasy theme being strong in it. It’s the kind of fairy tale look that you can expect from children’s books and from Tolkien’s movies. With dragons, flowers that are decorating every single playing card, queens, magic and warriors, Fantasy Realm is an enjoyable game. Even the background image looks the part, with a cool looking sea and with magic trees that seem inhabited by fairies.

Symbols: Elf Queen (wild), Centaur Warrior (scatter, 200x the bet), Dragon (3,000x), Magic Flame (1,000x), Jewelry (500x), Wishbone (500x), Ace/King (250x), Queen/Jack (175x) and Ten/Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

With up to $100,000 in prizes, with multiple progressive jackpots, lots of features and a fantasy design that I for one enjoyed, Fantasy Realm will be a title that you don’t want to miss out on.
