Sky Queen is a 5 reel, 50 payline slot from Playtech that can be played from 25p to £500 a spin on all devices including Android and iOS. With a Mesoamerican theme, it comes with a Fire Blaze Respin feature where you aim to fill the reels with sun symbols to win cash prizes or a fixed jackpot up to 2,000 times your stake. There’s also a Free Games feature where up to 16 free spins can be won.
Visually, Sky Queen is quite simple – you go on a Mesoamerican adventure where you summon the strength of the Sky Queen for big wins. Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as bowls, dragon head statues, Aztec head masks and leopards. The latter is the highest value symbol with 5 giving you 3 times your stake. The Sky Queen herself is the wild and replaces all symbols bar the scatter and sun – it appears only on reels 2, 3, 4 an 5.
When it comes to features, you have the Free Games feature which is played when you get 3, 4 or 5 temple scatters anywhere on the reels – you’ll receive 1, 10 or 50 times your stake as well as 8 free spins. You can also retrigger the feature to give you up to 16 free spins in total.
Now, during the free spins and in the base game, you’ll see sun symbols appearing which display a cash prize up to 50 times your stake. If you get 6 or more, you will activate the Fire Blaze Respin feature. Each sun symbol that appears in the feature will show a cash prize or Jackpot Star icon – with 3 respins awarded, all sun symbols are held if they appear. The number of respins will be reset to 3.
If you fill all symbol positions with sun symbols, you’ll win the Grand Jackpot which is worth 2,000 times your stake. All the cash prizes shown on the stars are also added to your win. If you have a Jackpot Star icon, they will transform to give you the Major, Minor or Mini jackpot which are worth 500, 100 or 20 times your stake respectively – these can be won multiple times too.
Whilst the value of the symbols is low in the base game, you can win pretty big from the Fire Blaze Respin feature due the cash value award from the sun symbols (up to 50 times your stake for each one). If you’re lucky, you could win 2,000 times your stake in total which is pretty decent.
Sky Queen is a decent slot but I prefer something with more backstory and more win potential from the base game and Free Games feature – Playtech has lots of these slots including Big Shots or Age of the Gods: Mighty Midas.
