We're taken to a fantasy land in Realm of Legends where a landscape of mountains and waterfalls awaits us. This is very much a scene out of an old Sinbad film, and some of the characters within this game could certainly feature in these now cult classic movies.
Moving over to the paytable on Realm of Legends we see that the lower pays are represented by the green crystal, blue crystal, red crystal and gold crystal, with win values reaching up to 25x when clusters are formed through them. Premium paying symbols are Medusa, Minotaur, Fire Sprite and Cyclops, where clusters of 25 or more will pay 100x, 200x, 500x and 1000x respectively.
To play Realm of Legends it will cost you a mimimim of €0.20 a spin, whilst the highest stake on the game can reach a whopping €100 a play. Luckily there are plenty of stake sizes between these amounts for you to find a bet size that is comparable to you bankroll.
WINNING REACTIONS WILL CAUSE THE REELS TO CASCADE ON REALM OF LEGENDS SLOT
As is often the case with a grid slot, Realm of Legends features the cascading reels mechanic which can lead to some impressive base game hits, as well as the triggering of modifiers which we will discuss shortly. For those who are new to the cascading mechanic, each time that a combination of winning symbols are formed on the reels, they will be eliminated and new symbols will then drop down to replace them.
This series of cascades will continue as long as you are creating new winning combinations on the reels, and will only come to an end when you fail to do so. All wins from that set of cascades will then be added to your playing balance and a new spin will need to be initiated.
4 MODIFIERS CAN BE TRIGGERED IN THE BASE GAME AND FREE SPIN FEATURE ON REALM OF LEGENDS
Everybody loves a modifier, especially those ones that can help you to produce some big wins in both the base game and free spin bonus round. But first let's talk about how exactly these modifiers and triggered on Realm of Legends.
To the left of the reels you will see that there is a circle win meter that contains each of the 4 main characters of the slot. Whenever you hit a winning combo of symbols, the amount of symbols that made up that win will be added to the meter. The following amount of symbols are required to unlock the corresponding modifiers and the act that they will perform once triggered.
20 Symbols - Medusa Modifier - All high paying symbols in view will be transformed into the Medusa symbol, and all other symbols will be removed from the grid. The Medusa symbols will then drop down and the grid will be repopulated with new symbols. Any wins will then be paid.
40 Symbols - Minotaur Modifier - Once triggered the Minotaur will add multiple wilds to the grid, some of which will contain multiplier values to further enhance any wins.
60 Symbols - Fire Sprite Modifier - If activated the Fire Sprite will burn away all lower paying symbols. The high value symbols will then drop down and the missing spaces will be filled with new symbols.
80 Symbols - Cyclops Modifier - The Cyclops when triggered has the ability to upgrade up to 3 of the premium paying symbols that are in view.
REALM OF LEGENDS FREE SPIN FEATURE
COLLECT 5 BONUS SYMBOLS IN ONE SERIES OF REEL CASCADES TO TRIGGER THE FREE SPIN FEATURE IN REALM OF LEGENDS
For the free spins to be triggered on Realm of Legends, you will need to collect a total of 5 bonus symbols in one series of reel cascades. The progress of how many you have collected can be seen to the top right hand side of the reels. If you are successful in this task then you will be awarded with 7 free spins.
MODIFIERS ARE EASIER TO TRIGGER DURING THE FREE SPIN BONUS ON REALM OF LEGENDS
The free spin feature behaves in the same fashion as the base game, but there is one significant difference that will really help you out. The amount of symbols needed on the win meter to trigger the modifiers has now been halved, meaning that in theory these are now far easier to trigger and give you the chance to hit bigger and better wins.
REALM OF LEGENDS SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
Grid slots are becoming more and more popular, especially since Big Time Gaming released the new genre of game Megaclusters. So Blueprint have added to their portfolio of clusters pays games, with this well designed fantasy themed slot that has the potential to produce some big wins in both the base game and the bonus round.
Some players may see some similarities in Realm of Legends to Blueprints Dragonfall, which is also a fantasy based grid slot. Although in our opinion, the modifiers in Realm of Legends makes this game stand out more, and offer a bit more entertainment.
This is certainly a game to try out if you've been enjoying the grid slots of late, but don't want all of the razzmatazz that comes with the new Megaclusters engine.
