The Last Kingdom: Demo
Best The Last Kingdom Casinos
The Last Kingdom Theme/Symbols
With a battlefield shrouded in mist in the background, you’ll see A to 10 royal symbols alongside 4 higher paying character symbols including Beocca the priest and Viking top dog Ubba. The character symbols spin in 2-high stacks.
The best standard symbol is the piece of Saxon jewellery which pays 0.1, 0.6, 2 or 6 times your stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. Most of Skywind’s slot releases have come with a good range of extras and that’s certainly the case with official The Last Kingdom slot game.
Uhtred Power feature
Uhtred is the game’s wild symbol. Whenever he appears, he expands downwards and fills the rest of the reel below. He also turns adjacent jewellery symbols wild. This can create some top winning clusters and is known as the Uhtred Power feature. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 wilds in combination for an award of 0.2, 1, 3 or 10 times your stake.
2 free spins features
Land the free games symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to trigger the first bonus. You’ll then have the pick of 2 different free spin features:
- Saxons Free Games feature - choose this round and you’ll receive 15 free spins with 2x wild multipliers. The 2 Danish character symbols are missing in this round.
- Danes Free Games feature - opt for this round and you’ll receive 6 free spins with 5x wild multipliers. The 2 Saxon characters are omitted for the duration.
You can land the Uhtred Power Spreading Wilds in both free games features.
Shield Wall Jackpot Bonus feature
The Shield Wall Jackpot Bonus feature is triggered by landing 3 of the shield scatter symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin. You’ll then receive 5 bonus spins with the shield from the triggering spin dropping to the bottom of their reel. Any shields that land during your spins are added to the reels. If you manage to fill a whole row, an extra 5 bonus spins are added.
Each shield comes with a cash value of up to 5 times your stake attached. When you’re out of bonus spins, the cash values are added together for your final prize.
You could also land a jackpot prize here. The Mini Jackpot is awarded if you fill 3 rows with the Grand Jackpot triggered if you fill the whole screen with shields. These come on top of the standard shield payouts. Both jackpots are progressive.
The Last Kingdom thoughts
The Last Kingdom slot is another top-notch adaptation from Skywind. The visuals are excellent as is the stirring martial soundtrack. We could have done without the blasts of dialogue though, that had us reaching for the mute button. The gameplay impresses. There’s plenty of variety on offer and it can pack a big payout punch too. The variance is 93.5% though but this is because there are progressive jackpots on offer.
This is a volatile slot – the most you can win on each spin is 500 x stake (by filling the reels with Uhtred wilds. If you add in the multipliers from the free spins features, you can win a lot more:
- Saxons Free Games feature: 500 x stake x 2x multiplier = 1,000 x stake per free spin
- Danes Free Games feature: 500 x stake x 5x multiplier = 2,500 x stake per free spin
If you enjoyed The Last Kingdom on BBC and later Netflix, you should find plenty to like here. Even if you’ve never heard of Uhtred and co., this trip to the Dark Ages can be an enlightening one. I would also recommend you try NetEnt’s Vikings as it has a similar theme, it based on a popular TV series and offers 10,000 x stake wins on each free spin.
