Royal Banquet is a food themed online video slot that has been designed and developed by Betonsoft. As food is theme, you can expect to find all kinds of luxurious snacks, starts and main courses here, which all go down nicely with most players. This isn’t just a food themed slot though, and there is a certainly element of royalty about the food, although none of that is present in the graphics of the game. They are far from regal in appearance, although wilds, scatters and free spins do make up for that.
So yes, the graphics aren’t of the best quality, and the background is a little dodgy. We are led to believe that this is a royal courtroom, a banqueting hall of sorts, though very little of it is visible to give off that impression well. Icon imagery includes a mug of ale, a naked chicken, a knight, a chef, bread, a monk, cups and chalices, a fruit board, and ham and more.
The graphics are kind of clunky and drawn like they belong in a children’ comic.
Cost of Playing
Fortunately though, the Royal Banquet slot machine isn’t remotely expensive to play. It has a minimum stake of only 0.01 per line, per spin. Considering there are 5 reels and 20 paylines, which should mean you have a decent gambling range to select your stake from. Indeed, the maximum wager in this video slot is only 50.00 per spin.
The wild icon in this game is the king, as you might have guessed. The king wild will of course, substitute itself with any other symbol in the game (barring the scatter icon), to assist a player in completing a winning payline.
The scatter icon is a jester, although it does look more like a clown if truth be told. The jester icon will offer players scattered wins which work out as multiplies of their original stake. 3 or more scatter icons located anywhere on the reels will trigger the Royal Banquet Bonus round.
The bonus round isn’t really a bonus round, as it is actually a free spins round. In this round, players could win up to 30 free spins, which will certainly help no end as players try to acquire the top prize. There is no actual jackpot in this game though, which is certainly weird beyond belief.
To be fair, this is hardly the most entertaining slot. There are a lot of medieval themed video slots out on the market, so this one really needed to have something unique and different from the others, or at the very least be witty. It has failed on both accounts. Still, if you are new to the whole gambling on slots industry, or like to operate on a shoestring budget, you might yet find something in Royal Banquet that is to your liking.
