Everyone who enjoys a bit of history really appreciates when history is the inspiration for video slots. This is the case with Versailles Gold, a very interesting video slot released by EGT in December 2014. This game introduces you to the life and luxury of the famous Versailles palace, the royal palace for French kings. The main character is King Louis XIV, the Sun King, which was the French king with the longest reign.
How to Play
Unfortunately, there aren’t many online casinos in the UK which can offer this slot, but those who have it can still offer you the possibility to play the game for free in the demo mode. This option doesn’t require any registration and can prove to be the perfect tool to learn and experience this video slot, before moving on to the real money mode. When spinning the reels you will find symbols with a lower value like the standard playing cards (10, J, Q, K and A) or the ones with a higher value like the carriage, the cardinal, the queen and the king himself. There are some special features you will need to look for:
- The Sun King is both the wild and scatter symbol. It can replace any missing symbol to create a winning combination, or if landed 3 or more times anywhere on the reels it will get you 12 free spins;
- The AutoPlay function will spin the reels automatically;
- The Gamble feature will allow you to guess the colour of the next drawn card and if you guess it this will double your payout.
How to Win the Game
Versailles Gold includes 5 reels and 3 reels but also has 10 pay lines. The minimum bet per spin is 1 £, whilst the maximum bet can reach 200 £, leading to a jackpot of 100000 £. This is quite a handsome payout which can lure players in. The king is the highest paying symbol, landing 5 of them in a line will award you the maximum prize. The Sun King will award 50000 coins if you get a full combination, whilst the queen can get you 40000 coins.
This video slot is quite interesting and deserves a lot more credit. Also, it should be more present on the UK’s online casinos, so that British players can enjoy more of this wonderful game.
