9 Sons 1 King is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot brought to you by Playtech. Playable on all compatible devices (like iOS, Android, laptops and PCs) from as little as 50p per spin, it comes with a Money Shot feature where you can win up to 200 times your stake as well as a free spins feature where up to 36 free spins with a held wild can be won.

Visually, 9 Sons 1 King is typical of what you’d expect from Playtech – it has excellent graphics and animations and obviously has a Chinese legend theme. Featuring fish, tortoises, lizards, cows, tigers, dogs, goats, lions and wolves on the reels, they all pay 25 coins for 4 on a payline.

There’s a Money Shot feature – there’s a Money Shot reel (reel 5). If a Money Shot symbol appears and you get a 4 of a kind combination with any of the symbols, you could be in line for a payout of up to 200 times your stake! Finally, there’s a dragon wild which lands only the 3 middle reels and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.

That scatter is the palace symbol and lands only on the first 4 reels – when 3 or more land, you’ll trigger the Dragon King Free Games feature. 3 will give you 9 free spins whilst 4 gives you 27 free spins. During the feature, there’s a dragon wild reel which remains locked on reel 3 throughout. If you get 2 or 3 scatters simultaneously on a free spin, you will win 3 or 9 additional free spins (respectively).

Playtech has create many Chinese themed titles and 9 Sons 1 King is a good addition to the ever-growing portfolio. I found the variance to be somewhere in the middle with good potential from the Money Shot feature and sticky wild reel in the feature. It’s virtually identical to 8 Treasures 1 Queen (also by Playtech) but I recommend you take a look at Sun Wukong which is excellent.
