Do you recall the cartoon Fairly Odd Parents?

It’s about a young boy whose parents were fairies that could grant wishes or cause all kinds of mayhem.

That cartoon had a distinctive visual style, and you might be reminded of it when you see the eponymous King of Slots character from this new NetEnt slot.

But oddly enough, aside from the King, the slot is rather measured and perhaps a little understated.

With autoplay available and the ability to select the coin value (between $0.01 and $0.10) as well as the level (which when increased increases the size of the bet) King of the Slots is certainly playable by all slot fans regardless of bankroll.

Overview: King of Slots

King of Slots is a rather unusual game. When you see the character the slot is named after, you expect a cartoon-style game, bright graphics, and crazy colors.

Instead, you get a rather subtle game and gentle soundtrack, more like you would find at a land-based casino.

The slot is a 25-payline, 5×3 reel game that features a number of traditional fruit machine symbols as the highs and playing card symbol lows.

The crown is the highest paying base game symbol and there are the usual scatter and wild symbols across the reels.

However, what makes King of Slots different is that it features Sticky Win, which sees any win held in place and the remaining reels spun to see if you can increase your win by landing more of the same symbols.

Who will the King of Slots appeal to?

King of Slots is a game with all-around appeal.

The stake sizes ($0.25 to $25) mean it is likely to appeal to low to mid stakes players, but the potential jackpot win of 750,000 coins means that big jackpot hunters and higher stakes NJ online slots players will also be very interested.

If you like a low variance slot with regular wins, then the King of Slots accommodates, but it also has the attraction of occasional big wins, especially if you can trigger the free spins game. (This sadly does not happen as often as you’d like.)

That said, with the Sticky Win feature in operation, there’s still lots of entertainment to be had.

Where to play King of Slots in New Jersey

King of Slots is an easy game to find. You won’t have to hunt too long to find a top quality legal NJ casino site at which to play it.

If you haven’t yet visited VirginCasino.com, why not give this lesser-known NJ casino a whirl?

Otherwise, look for King of Slots at Tropicana, Golden Nugget, Betfair, Borgata online casino, and Resorts in NJ.

Gameplay: King of Slots

This is one of the best balanced games I’ve come across in a long time; however, it has its frustrations.

king-of-slots-1First up, the ability to play for a wide range of lower value stakes puts this game firmly in the sights of lower to medium stakes players, but with a big jackpot of 750,000 coins possible, higher stakes and big jackpot hunters will also be attracted to play.

The presentation is nice and smooth, with the cartoon king ruling over the five reels. They spin with a pleasing whirring noise and a gentle soundtrack.

Spins occur quickly during autoplay and, of course, when the Sticky Win feature kicks in, things get interesting.

Sticky Win ensures that regardless of what symbol hits a payline for you, any symbols not part of that win will be spun again.

If on that subsequent spin, they add another symbol to your payline, then you receive a larger payout and get the chance to spin any remaining reels again. In this way, you can build a small win of, say, three symbols into a much larger one.

Of course, the additional spins during Sticky Win are all free and the good news is that you don’t have to have just one symbol making a winning payline. You can use multiple symbols across multiple lines to claim a win.

The Sticky Win feature adds a huge amount to the base game and as a player, you feel like you are receiving an additional bonus.

However, my one gripe with King of Slots is the free spins round. In reviewing the game, it took me an absolute age to finally trigger it.

Of course, you can win some big money during free spins, especially with a 3x multiplier in play on every win during that round, but often the wins are not that much bigger than what you can trigger in the base game.

King of Slots is definitely a game to watch. It has a really great balance of regular smaller wins and bigger less frequent wins in the base game. It was just a pity that the free spins round was so difficult to trigger.

Special features: King of Slots

king-of-slots-2Wild

King of Slots features an in-game wild that can substitute for any high or low symbol to create winning paylines.

This is also in play during free spins and also during any Sticky Win free spin.

Free spins bonus

Land five or more scatters and you can win between 10 and 30 free spins in the game. During free spins all wins are subject to a 3x multiplier, which can help radically increase the value of your win.

Sticky wins

If at any point during the base game or free spins you trigger a win, then the Sticky Win bonus activates. This spins all symbols not involved in the payline and allows you to grow the size of the win by adding more symbols to an existing payline, or creating a new payline.

The Sticky Win feature re-triggers until a spin does not add any new wins to the existing ones.

What works?

king-of-slots-3Presentation

Although the cartoon king implies a more humorous game, the actual gameplay on King of Slots is rather sedated, but well-presented.

The game looks nice and plays very quickly during autoplay. With the additional features, it is a big thumbs up for aesthetics alone.

Regular wins

One of the nicest things about the King of Slots base game is that it rewards you with regular smaller to mid-sized wins.

Alas, there are times when the slot plays with more volatility and you need to have a decent bankroll to absorb these periods of few wins and hope to hit the free spins round.

Sticky Wins

Without doubt the best feature of the game is the Sticky Win feature, which operates in base game and free spins rounds. It’s a great feature that adds a huge amount of excitement to the base game.

What doesn’t?

Free spins difficult to hit

king-of-slots-4The biggest problem in the King of Slots game is hitting the free spins bonus. It can take a long, long time and unfortunately when you do, there’s no guarantee of a big win.

However, by the same token, free spins is the key to winning the massive 750,000-coin jackpot in the game.

Multiplier only in free spins

Although the base game is good, it would have been nice if there had been a triggerable multiplier bonus on some of the base game wins, especially those completed by a wild.

Free spins wins can be small

Although the King of Slots pays out relatively frequently, a lot of the wins are generally small, even if you trigger what appears to be a lot of symbols. It can be frustrating to think you are lining up a huge win to find you only receive 5x or 10x your initial bet.

The scores

[wp-review id=”6378″]

Graphics and soundtrack: 5/5

The clean lines, simple color scheme, and smooth animations all add up to a slot that doesn’t wow in terms of achievements, but presents crisply and beautifully.

Add the cartoon king and you have a fine example of a slot where less is more.

Originality and creativity: 3/5

There are some nice touches in this slot, notably the Sticky Win feature which lifts it above the average. Other than that, it is the same free spins and wild symbol offering with just a single multiplier.

Good, but not great in creative terms.

Play value: 4/5

You can have periods when this slot plays very tight and others where it throws wins at you, but generally this is a decent value slot that shouldn’t typically make too big a hole in your bankroll.

Jackpot potential: 4/5

king-of-slots-5With a jackpot of 750,000 coins, there’s real jackpot potential for any player lucky enough to hit anywhere near this amount, although it should be remembered that the largest coin amount is $0.10.

Repeat play: 5/5

You’ll want to come back to King of Slots, even if it is just for the Sticky Wins feature. The base game is hugely enlivened by this feature.

Total score: 19/25

King of Slots is a very enjoyable slot with great balance between low to medium variance, a good-sized jackpot, and stake levels and features to ensure it can be enjoyed by all.

It’s certainly one of the better efforts from NetEnt in recent years.
