Kingdom’s Edge is a 5 reel, 20 payline from NextGen Gaming that can be played on all devices from 10p to £25 per spin. This epic release is highly volatile and benefits from expanding wilds with spins and multipliers as well as free spins with nudging gold wild stacks – there’s 3,000 times your stake to be won on each spin!

Kingdom’s Edge takes you on a journey to the fabled Kingdom of Elaris as you join King Trenin DeSaxe and his ragtag band of heroes. With an epic/fantasy feel, it has a soundtrack worthy of featuring in a Lord of the Rings production! Set in the secluded River Kingdom of Elaris, it has cartoon style graphics and is rather basic.

Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals as well as 4 heroes (‘Giant Knight’ Omin Preesh, ‘Queen of Arrows’ Liliana Strait, dwarf Holta ‘Silver’ Mett and ‘Keeper of the Magics’ Resmina-Mi). ‘Giant Knight’ Omin Preesh is the most valuable symbol giving you 5 times your stake for 5 on a payline. This may sound low but all hero symbols appear stacked on all reels.

The game has 2 wild symbols – you have King Trenin DeSaxe silver and King Trenin DeSaxe gold – 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will give you 0.5, 1.5, 5 or 30 times your stake respectively. The King Trenin DeSaxe gold appears stacked on reel 1 and replaces all symbols bar the scatter and King Trenin DeSaxe silver wild. The King Trenin DeSaxe silver win appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and replaces all symbols bar the scatter and King Trenin DeSaxe gold wild.

When the King Trenin DeSaxe gold wild appears stacked on reel 1, you will trigger the Rally the Troops feature – all silver wilds on the other reels expand to give you wild reels. If any hero symbol appears on the same reel as a silver wild, the multiplier increases by 1 – this can lead to a 5x multiplier on each spin. If a shield symbol appears on the same reel as a silver wild, you will get 1 extra spin in the feature. By the way, the expanded gold wild remains sticky throughout.

There’s also a Defend the Gates Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more scattered shield symbols – as well as 5, 20 or 50 times your stake, you will receive 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. Now, the Rally the Troops feature applies during the free spins.

When a gold wild appears partially on reel 1, it is nudged to occupy the whole reel. If a full gold wild stack appears on reel 1, you will receive 5 or 10 extra free spins. 3 or more scatters will retrigger the feature giving you more free spins – there are no limits to how many free spins you can win. Furthermore, the Rally the Troops feature in the free spins can give you a multiplier up to 5x.

Kingdom’s Edge has a real epic feel to it – it’s also highly volatile and offers you top payouts of 3,000 times your total stake on each spin/free spin! All that remains is that you carry your banner to victory and forge your legend. If you like the theme, Microgaming’s Avalon II is recommended.
