Rise up into the clouds to help the empress defend her kingdom from dragon attacks in this exciting slot. While spinning steampunk themed reels you will have the chance to win big with the aid of cascading reels, free respins, two free spins games, and three progressive jackpots. To top it all off, you can also purchase bonus features from the special Kingdoms Rise shop.
Kingdoms Rise: Scorching Clouds is an arcade style slot played on 5 reels with 5 rows. This means that payouts are won by landing clusters of at least four matching symbols on the reels. The reels are set in some kind of steampunk flying vehicle operated by a man who can be seen to the right of the reels and you can see the rooftops of the city below in the background. There are a number of high value symbols on the reels including three characters, Sir Jacob Deven, Eilana Toloune and Toredd Danerick, as well as a telescope, a wrench and a hammer. The lower value symbols are gems coloured red, blue, green and purple.
The ship’s steering wheel is the wild and it will substitute for all of the other symbols to help and form winning combinations.
The slot has two special symbols, the glowing blue egg and the dragon head, each of which have their own bonus features.
The slot features cascading reels. This means that when a winning cluster lands on the reels, after you receive the payout the symbols in the cluster will disappear to allow more to fall and take their place. Hopefully this will form another win and the process will then repeat itself.
There are three special areas at the bottom of the screen and if a wild or dragon egg lands in one of them, they will become spreading wilds and add between two and four extra wilds anywhere on the reels.
Every time that you land a dragon egg symbol it is collected in the area at the top of the reels and when you have collected six or them you will receive six free respins. During the respins, any clusters that land will remain on the reels while the other symbols disappear. When no more wins are formed you win the payout.
Landing three or more dragon head scatter symbols anywhere on the reels gives you the choice of two free spins games:
- Knight Free Spins – Receive 8, 10 or 12 spins for 3, 4 or 5 scatters respectively. In the spins, any hammer symbols that land next to a knight will be converted into knight symbols.
- Empress Free Spins – 5, 6 or 7 spins for 3, 4 or 5 scatters respectively. Any hammers, wrenches or telescopes that land next to the Empress will be converted into Empress symbols.
As you play the game, you will collect tokens that can appear overlaid on symbols. When you have enough of them, you can use them to buy features from the Kingdoms Rise Shop. You can actually purchase bonus features for any of the games in series, and buying a feature from a different game will take you to that slot. There are a number of features available for Scorching Clouds. For 750 tokens, you can buy six Dragon Egg Respins. For 1000, 1500 or 2000 tokens, you can buy four, six or eight Knight Free Spins respectively. For 1500, 2,250 or 3000 tokens, you can buy four, six or eight Empress Free Spins respectively.
On any spin, the progressive jackpot game can begin at random. There are three jackpots up for grabs, the Daily Strike Jackpot, which must be won before the time shown, the Power Strike Jackpot, which must be hit before it grows to the specified amount, and the Epic Jackpot, which can be won at any time and has no limits on it.
The slot offers a top payout of 100x for landing a cluster of ten or more Eilana Toloune symbols. Both Sir Jacob Deven and Toredd Danerick can payout up to 60x, the telescope can payout up to 40x, and the hammer and wrench can both payout up to 30x. The red gem can payout up to 9x, the blue gem up to 5x, the green gem up to 4x, and the purple gem up to 2x.
