Royal Wins from Booming Games: Slot Review - London's calling!
London is famous all over the world as tourists flock to visit this place each and every year to sample the sights and sounds of this amazing English city. Situated on the historic River Thames, it is a global destination for commerce, education, and all kinds of entertainment. Believe it or not but London is the second most populated city in Europe, second only to Paris! Tourists come to visit places such as the iconic London Bridge, the River Thames, Big Ben, and a whole load of museums and other famous historical sites. Renowned software studio Booming Games decided to release this slot to celebrate this wonderful city so let’s hop on board a red double-decker bus and head to London to see what all the fuss is about.
Royal Wins is a 5 reel slot with 20 paylines and includes Free Spins, Wild Multipliers, Stacked Symbols, and a Gamble feature.
The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol and this is denoted by a neon coloured image of Big Ben. Like most traditional Wild symbols, it substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter to help contribute to landing winning combinations on the reels. This symbol also comes stacked in sets of three and can appear partially or completely on any reel.
The Scatter symbol is depicted by a neon coloured image of a red double-decker bus. Land 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels and you will trigger the Free Spins bonus game. In this feature, you’ll receive 10 Free Spins and if you manage to land more Scatters while in Free Spins then you’ll be awarded another 10 Free Spins. Keep a close eye on the Scatter symbol as it is also the highest paying symbol in the game. If you are lucky enough to land 5 of these symbols on an active payline then you’ll be celebrating big time with a top payout of 40,000 coins!
Royal Wins also features a risky but fun Gamble feature. This triggers whenever you form a win on the reels and involves guessing between a rainy blue cloud or a green umbrella. Guess the item correctly and your win is nicely doubled. It’s possible to gamble for up to 10 times in a row or until your winnings reach 10,000. Tread very carefully when playing this feature as if you guess incorrectly then you will lose all your current winnings and be taken back to the main game.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The graphics feature a range of shiny bright neon colours and it’s quite interesting as Booming Games decided to take the bright neon lights of Las Vegas and create them in a London setting. The backdrop is a dark black background which is intentional so as to make the neon colours really stand out that bit more. Symbols are bright and colourful and consist of Big Ben, an Underground sign, a Royal Guard, an Umbrella, a Cloud, and a range of Lucky Seven icons. The animations are quite stylish as symbols enlarge, flash, and burst into life when part of a winning combination.
The music is jaunty and orchestral with a distinctly British flavour. It ties in really well with the theme of the game.

Our Verdict on Royal Wins
Booming Game created this fun slot and it’s a nice tribute to one of the most popular cities in the world albeit with a Vegas-style twist! The game features an incredibly easy to use interface, some highly polished neon graphics, and a decent amount of bonus features. The Free Spins game can be quite tricky to trigger but it can be highly rewarding too and it helps that you can retrigger additional spins in this feature. The Gamble mode is also fun to play but definitely aimed at players who enjoy taking a risk! I found this slot to be of Medium variance so you’ll find that wins are evenly distributed the more you play. With a top prize worth 2,000X your bet on offer, what's stopping you from heading to London right now?
