The video slot’s name “The King” is borrowed from the hereditary title for a monarchy’s supreme leader. Five symbols (crown, medieval king, female archer, 9, and lion statue) require two, three, four, or five winning combinations. Eight symbols (treasure chest, mask on shield, shield with crossed swords, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
The King Game Characteristics

The King has two special and eleven ordinary symbols. The special symbols: a substitute/wild gem-encased golden crown on blue medieval banners; and a gray-and-golden lion statue between medieval banners and shields (scatter).
The ordinary symbols: a sword-wielding, plate-armored and gray-haired medieval king dressed in red; a red-haired female archer dressed in red-and-blue; a red-handled golden sword propping a treasure chest’s lid open; a golden spartan mask on a round red-and-golden shield; a round red-and-golden shield with crisscrossed swords in a smaller blue-and-golden heater shield; and six Gothic letters—red-and-golden A, orange K, green-and-golden Q, blue-and-golden J, purple-and-golden 10, and turquoise-and-golden 9.
The King coin denominations: $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.50, and $1.00 (also The King’s lowest total bets, when the $1.00 bet per line and one active payline are constant; $0.01 is minimum bet). The bets per line: $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, and $10. When the $10.00 bet per line and all ten active paylines are constant, The King’s highest betting range is: $1.00, $2.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00 (maximum bet).
Betting $100.00 attracts these The King payouts. Two, three, four, and five: crowns pay $100.00, $2500.00, $25000.00, and $90000.00; medieval kings, or female archers pay $20.00, $250.00, $1250.00, and $7500.00; 9s pay $20.00, $50.00, $250.00, and $1000.00; and lion statues pay $200.00, $500.00, $2000.00, and $50000.00.

Winning combinations featuring a wild crown substitute(s) attract X2 win multipliers. 3+ lion statues offer 15 free spins wherein wins attract X3 win multipliers. Each regular win activates the risk side game; The King slot players gamble their wins in their quest for doubling them, wherein they guess which, among the four face down Endorphina-branded cards to the right of the face up card, has a relatively higher value (failing nullifies wins). The King’s non-progressive jackpot is $90000.00.
Players who are familiar with Endorphina’s slots will relate with the user-friendly The King interface, thanks to the software framework. The sound effects include a stretching bow, arrow’s impetus, chinking coins, and clanging swords; and medieval instrumentals. Its animated 3D graphics include the archer aiming expertly, kneeling king repeatedly thrusting his sword into the field, spinning turbines behind card values, and glitter effect.
