River Queen is a Novomatic powered slot with 5 reels and 50 paylines. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 50p to £50 per spin, you take a trip along the Mississippi with the Louisiana elite on a huge steamboat. Take a seat on the luxurious River Queen with free spins and moving wilds.

Theme wise, River Queen takes you back in time to the deep South where you mingle among the high society. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J playing cards, poker chips, dice, 4 Aces as well as a moustachioed gambler. There’s also a Southern belle who is the wild symbols and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter – she is also the most valuable symbol rewarding you with 1,000 times your line stake for 5 on a payline.

The paddle steamboat Is the scatter and rewards you with 10,000 times your line bet (or 200 times your stake) for 5 on a payline. If you get 3 or more anywhere on the reels, you will trigger the Free Games feature. You will win 10 free spins which benefit from the Moving Wilds feature.

Each steamboat then becomes a wild symbol for the feature and covers 2 reel positions – with each free spin, the steamboat sails upstream or downstream (up or down basically) to give you winning combinations. If you line up just right, you can benefit from huge wins.

I found River Queen to be a medium to high variance offering with the bigger wins coming in the Free Games feature naturally – don’t expect to trigger it often or to win big either. I have had wins of over 250 times my stake a few times now.

I recommend you climb aboard the River Queen, enjoy your glass of bourbon, the Southern flair and the company of Louisiana’s elite. If this game floats your boat (excuse the pun), I recommend you try Novomatic’s Sharky which is also set on water. If you like grand ships, Bally’s Titanic is one I suggest playing.
