Once Upon a Time Online 3D Video Slot Introduced
Betsoft Gaming presents a 3D online video slot game with the ever-popular theme of medieval tales of fair princesses and noble knights. The aptly titled, Once Upon a Time slot by Betsoft Gaming features 30 paylines, five reels and various bonus features in keeping with this fantastic tale of medieval times.
The Once Upon a time is highly engaging – in terms of both sound and visuals. Under the billowing “Once Upon a Time” banner, the reels are set in an ancient-looking grey stone wall, with the various buttons to be found atop tree stumps and in a wooden cart beneath the reels.
All Once Upon a Time symbols become animated when part of a winning payline and the bonus games feature mini movie clips reminiscent of a Disney rendition of the Robin Hood story. All the while, the staccato leitmotif of Once Upon a Time portends great excitement in its whimsical musical notes.
Once Upon a Time, There Lived…
… a beautiful princess, who lived in a regal old castle, and a brave and handsome knight, who rode a mighty steed. Once upon a time, a barbarous gang of evil goblins ransacked the castle and took the princess hostage. And so it fell to the noble night to rescue her and slay her greedy green captors… These are the major characters in the Once Upon a Time slot back story and they also make up the primary symbols on the reels.
The most directly valuable symbol is, of course, the fair-haired princess, all dressed in blue and leaning wistfully out of a castle window, with Canadian casino games’ five of a kind paying out 500 coins.
The green dragon is the wild symbol and can stand in for any other symbol to complete winning combinations in addition to helping to trigger the wild reel feature. The Once Upon a Time scatter symbol, meanwhile, is represented by those good-for-nothing goblins.
Once Upon a Time Bonus Rounds
Betsoft has incorporated several bonus rounds into the Once Upon a Time online video slot, each of which is triggered differently and offers different potential rewards:
Fire-Starter: Triggered when the wild dragon symbol appears on the topmost line of the centre reel, causing the entire reel to turn wild. Naturally, this greatly ups the likelihood of landing a winning Once Upon a Time payline combination. What’s more, if the treasure trove symbol appears alongside the dragon, players are awarded a free spin.
How She Loved the Knight: Triggered when the princess and the night appear adjacent to one another on the same row on the three middle reels and it awards instant credit to players.
Those Crazy Goblins free spins: Activated when three tree house symbols appear on an active payline. Free spins can be retriggered if more tree house symbols appear during free spins.
Greedy Goblins Click-Me: Triggered by three sacks of gold positioned anywhere on the screen, with instant credits hidden in each of the sacks.
Goblin’s Treasure: Triggered by three or more goblin symbols on an active payline. This allows players to steel items to win credits.
Save the Princess: Activated by three or more knight symbols on an active payline, this round allows the player to score credits by helping the knight to save the princess from the dragon.
