A cheery medieval castle themed slot from BF Games
Rich Castle is one of the most popular video slots from BF Games at EnergyCasino. Set in a rather jovial medieval castle, it has a light-hearted cartoon like feel to it, and is a cascading slot, giving lots of wins and the potential for some very exciting gameplay.
Rich Castle has a 5-reel, 3-row, 20-payline format, and benefits from the clear and easy-to-use BF Games gameplay console. Lines can be selected from the slider on the left of the reels, and bet size can be controlled using a slider to the right of the reels, or by a button below them. There is also a ‘max bet’ feature, and an ‘auto start’ button, allowing for automatic play. The minimum coins per line is 1, with a minimum coin size of 0.01 and a maximum of 2.5, meaning that Rich Castle is great for gamers on any budget, and brilliant for a quick casual session.
Meet the entire royal family and enjoy cascading Wilds, Bonuses and Free Spins
The reels feature symbols of characters from the castle, with high scoring symbols being the king, queen and princess, and medium to low scoring symbols consisting of a guard, a nanny, a gardener and a maid. There is also a court jester that functions as a Wild, substituting for all other symbols except for the Bonus, which is a chest overflowing with gold coins. Wilds can only appear on the middle three reels, and only one Wild or Bonus symbol can appear on a reel at a time – Wilds and Bonus symbols cannot appear on the same reel at the same time. Landing 3 Bonus symbols on a payline triggers 15 free spins with a x3 multiplier, and free spins can be re-triggered.
The cascade feature in Rich Castle means that after a win, the winning symbols disappear, to be replaced by more symbols. The process continues as long as the wins do, with an increasing win multiplier each time (x1, x2, x3 and x5). This makes playing Rich Castle consistently exciting, and at times very fast. After a win, you are also given the opportunity to increase your win in an ‘all or nothing’ red or black card game. Each time you guess the colour correctly, your win will double, but if you choose incorrectly you will lose the entire win.
Fun cartoon style graphics, rich with animation and atmospheric sounds
Graphically speaking, Rich Castle has a nice cartoon style to it. The background is the interior of a room in a castle tower, with windows looking out onto a night sky, complete with shinning full moon. It can be presumed that the room is high in a tower, because it is above the clouds – which are subtly animated. The curtain drapes above the window are also animated, swaying gently – though precariously close to burning candles! The royal pug dog, complete with crown, sits on a red velvet cushion to the left of the reels, and sparkling gold coins litter the stone floor. All of the character symbols are also animated, with little swaying, smiling and blinking motions, making for a gameplay environment that seems to come alive.
The background soundtrack features nice period music, with harpsichord and flutes, and ambient summer night insect sounds, and the sound effects for the reels are nice and mechanically clunky. Of course, if you find the music or sounds annoying, you can mute each, or adjust the volume individually.
Overall, Rich Castle, is one of the most polished and attractive games released so far from BF Games, and is one of the most popular medieval-themed slot games at EnergyCasino for very good reasons. Whether you are looking for something fun to play for ten minutes on your lunch break, or want something that will engage for a longer gaming session, Rich Castle is well worth trying.
