Kingdom of the Sun: Golden Age is powered by Playson and has 5 reels and 15 paylines. Playable from 30p to £105 per spin across all devices including laptops, smartphones and tablets, you head to ancient Egypt where you can benefit from a Spreading Bonus feature where Bonus symbols remain sticky and low value symbols transform into a high value symbol for bigger wins. There’s also a Sun Compass feature where a group of low symbols transform into higher value ones for bigger wins. If you fill the screen with 1 symbol, your win will be doubled too.
Visually, Kingdom of the Sun: Golden Age has cartoon style graphics and looks superb – with the pyramids is the backdrop, you will see lush vegetation and plenty of riches (such as gold coins and jewels) outside the reels. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J Royal symbols as well as 3 Gods – Anubis (dog), Wadjet (snake) and Horus (falcon).
You will also see female and male pharaohs – the latter is the most lucrative giving you 13.33 times your stake for 5 in view. The sun is the Bonus and Wild symbol with 5 in combination giving you 16.67 times your stake – the symbol also replaces all other symbols.
When it comes to bonus features, Kingdom of the Sun: Golden Age has 3. Look out for the Bonus symbol landing as this will trigger the Spreading Bonus feature. All Bonus symbols remain in position with all adjacent low value symbols transforming into Bonus symbols. You will then get a free respin which allows you to get more low value symbols – once all transformations have occurred, all Bonus symbols transform into the wild or 1 of 2 Pharaoh symbols for even bigger wins.
Then you have the Sun Compass feature which is played when a glowing mid value symbol (the 3 Gods) lands on the reels – an arrow on the symbol will randomly choose up, down left or right. If the chosen direction sees an adjacent group of low value symbols, they will transform into a glowing mid symbol (1 of the 3 Gods) for enhanced wins.
Finally, the game comes with an Ultimate Win feature – if you manage to cover the entire reel set with the same symbol and/or wilds, your outcome will be doubled. This can allows for maximum wins of 500 times your total stake.
Unfortunately, there’s are no free spins but you will trigger both the Spreading Bonus and Sun Compass features fairly regularly – it’s a medium variance title with the Ultimate Win feature doubling your win amount if you fill the reels with the same symbol. If you like the theme, Playson’s Legend of Cleopatra is a better game in my opinion.
