Enjoy best in-house seats for a classic variety show in Cabaret Royale, a split level, 8 reel, 60 payline slot from 2 By 2 Gaming. Look out for Encore payouts that can double your win as well as 3 bonus features that award up to 30 free spins with wild reels, extra Encore payouts or a combination of both. Play on all devices from between 40p and £80 per spin.

There’s a suitable classy look to the design in Cabaret Royale. With a theatre curtain in the background, you’ll see playing card suit symbols as well as top hats, bottles of scent, dancing shoes, chandeliers and a male crooner. The dancing girls is the top payer, offering awards of up to 10 times your stake per winning line.

There’s also a wild that substitutes for everything bar the bonus and offers payouts of up to 15 times your total stake per payline. The 2 top paying standard symbols plus the wild can appear stacked 6 high on reels 1 and 8. On all the other reels they can appear 3 high. There’s a solid range of extras in offer in Cabaret Royale:

  • Wild feature – land a full stack of wilds on reels 1 or 8 and the stack will copy onto the other 6-high reel. Wilds can land on the other reels too to create some big winning combinations.
  • Encore feature – this can trigger at random in the base game on any spin where a win of at least 5 times your stake is achieved. That winning amount is then boosted by a 2x multiplier and doubled.

It’s all about the Free Spins Bonus feature thought – land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters on the same spin and you’ll receive 8, 10, 12 or 15 free spins. You’ll then be given 3 options:

  • Reels 1 and 8 will be wild throughout but the Encore feature will not be in play.
  • Encore feature is live and triggered more frequently.
  • Both the added wilds and Encore feature can hit if you opt for this feature.

As usual, an encore win delivers a 2x boost. Land back to back Encore wins and you’ll get a 4x boost. Re-triggers are possible too if you land 3 or more scatters on the same free spin meaning up to 30 free spins.

The split-level game engine is a little unusual but the rest of Cabaret Royale is pretty standard. The Encore payouts and stacked wilds can deliver some good action in the Free Spins Bonus feature though. This is a volatile slot with top wins of 1,000 times your stake on every free spin.

Cabaret Royale probably won’t stand up to endless repeat performances. It’s a perfectly entertaining show though, especially if you’re a fan of high variance slots. If you like the theme though, I would recommend you try Playson’s Burlesque Queen.
