In 1822, Sir Walter Scott penned an iconic tale of 12th century England that was full of acts of chivalry, clashing knights, jousts and merrymaking. Called Ivanhoe, it is regarded as one of the best books ever and is still as popular today as it was when first released.
Now, the folks at Elk Studios for some reason decided to make the book into a slots game with the same name. It is a simple game with a simple look that sports some sweet and tender bonuses. Check it out below.
Battle For Wins On The Ivanhoe Slots!
The slot has 3 reels, and 17 paylines that are as firmly fixed as a suit of armour. The design here is as basic as it can go. At either side of the reels are shown trumpeters furiously blowing their horns, while the top and bottom of the reels feature a constantly changing scene showing what appears to be battles and crusades.
The icons employed here are all classics and comprise blue sevens, red sevens, bars, lemons, cherries and watermelons. There is no wild icon in view in the slot. There is, however, an Ivanhoe bonus symbol that plays an outsized role in the bonuses detailed below.
Also, a crown icon is featured, but it is active only during the bonus rounds.
Free Spins– to activate this bonus feature, players must land at least 3 of the Ivanhoe bonus icon on activated paylines. Five free spins are then immediately awarded, but all subsequent bonus icons that appear on the reels in this bonus round bless players with an extra free spin.
Also, all wins gained here are added up, with players then being able to progress up the free spins ladder, level up and get more spins. Thus:
Ambush- this applies a 2x multiplier to all wins.
- The Joust Part One (requires a 2,500 coin win)- 3 extra spins, as well as win multipliers of 3x, are awarded.
- Robin’s Rescue (requires an 8,000) coin win)- 3 extra spins and a 4x multiplier are given.
- The Joust Part Two (requires a 20,000 coin win)- 3 extra spins and win multipliers of 5x are awarded.
- Return Of The King (requires an 81,000 coin win)- 3 extra spins and a 6x multiplier are awarded.
In the Free Spins bonus round, the crown icon transforms into a wild and only shows up on the reel centre.
The Ivanhoe slot has an unusual look, packs some creative bonuses themed around the book of the same name and is overall rather entertaining.
