Queen’s day tilt

Enter into the queen’s jousting tournament in Queen’s Day Tilt, a slot game from Play’n GO. It transports you back to medieval times when knights would clash in pursuit of fame and glory. The game plays out on a classic 3×3 grid with a cascading mechanic full of twists and surprises. The window may look small, but the volatility is cranked up to the max and the free spins and increasing multipliers could have you win up to 5,000x your stake.

The game experience

The game’s jousting tournament is immersive. You are surrounded by medieval tents and vast mountains on a bright summer’s day. The queen and the knight take centre stage on the reels, and the medieval soundtrack lends an extra dimension of authenticity to the game. The pay symbols have a royal touch, with the low-value clubs, spades, hearts and diamonds appearing in yellow, green, blue and red seam patterns. High paying symbols have two shields with an emblem and the two jousting knights.

The wild is the Queen, substituting for all symbols. There are no scatters or bonus emblems – free spins are triggered by emptying the grid.

The numbers

In this 3×3 grid slot, you win by matching 2 or 3 symbols horizontally or vertically. Whether you play on mobile or desktop, entry starts at 0.10 coins up to 100 coins. Payouts for landing 3 of a kind range from 2x-8x your stake, with gameplay twists to make those values explode into mega wins.

It’s a high-variance game with an RTP of 96.97%, and the auto-play can spin 10-500 times for you. You can also set win/loss limits.

Tumbling symbols

Tumbling reels and cascading symbols have become a popular game mechanic. Play’n GO have taken it further on their 3×3 grid, with 9 symbols cascading from the top in each round. The objective is to clear the grid to trigger the free spins round. The rewards come when you land 2 or 3 adjacent symbols. A winning combo is removed after the win pays out, and the remaining symbols descend to fill their places. If you form a 3-symbol combo, a wild symbol appears when the cluster disappears.

Extra features

The 3 extras make it easier to empty the grid, and they come into play at different stages of the round. Two of them are random and can trigger on both the base game and free spins. They are the Ruler, which adds an extra wild randomly when a losing symbol drops. The Tilt Strike can trigger at random when there is only 1 symbol on the grid at the end of a round, removing that symbol and initiating the free spins.

The Game of Accession occurs with winning symbols that include both knights in a new round. Low-value symbols are removed, but not before you pick which of the knights will deliver the most wins on a re-spin.

Free Spins

Get 5 free spins when all symbols are removed from the grid in a single round. You can re-trigger the round by emptying the grid during a free spins round. Only high-value symbols appear during the free spins. It starts with a 2x multiplier, which increases by 1x every time you see wins that include both knights. A losing spin will trigger the Ruler, adding a random wild to the grid.

The verdict

Play’n GO brings another great surprise for players. The 3×3 grid is unusual for a cascading mechanic and it makes for an entertaining and exciting experience. The win potential is big, but with the high variance we advise caution with your bet size.
