Pub Kings Slot review

Pragmatic Play

Pub Kings by Pragmatic Play is a slot game that captures the inhuman thirst for beer from strong, masculine Vikings. If you're a fan of this popular beverage, you may find a lot to relate to on these reels! 

Betting Options and Bonus Features

It’s reasonable to assume Vikings are quite aggressive humans, so Pub Kings naturally utilizes a highly volatile math model. But no matter how rough the ride goes, players can be sure the RTP is still dead on industry standard at 96.08%. The max win is quite decent at 5,000x while the free spin frequency is 1 in 221.

Pub Kings is played on a wooden grid containing 5 reels, 4 rows, and 20 paylines. There 10 pay symbols - five humble card ranks to represent the lower-value symbols and 5 Viking characters for the high-value symbols. Unlike most slot games these days, Pub Kings lacks a Wild, but the purple Viking symbol will grant an incredible 150x the stakes.

The Scatter symbol serves a dual purpose in the game, being not only the key to trigger free spins but also a crucial element of the Random Awards feature. Whenever exactly 2 Scatters land on the reels, players stand a chance to win a random award from levels 1 to 5. When the Random Awards feature activates, the 2 Scatters on the reels will choose a reel, and each reel offers a distinct list of potential rewards based on different levels:​

  • Reel 1: awards 10x to 5,000x the bet.
  • Reel 2: awards 6x to 2,500x the bet.
  • Reel 3: awards 4x to 1,500x the bet.
  • Reel 4: awards 3x to 750x the bet.
  • Reel 5: awards 2x to 500x the bet.

When 3 Scatter symbols grace the reels, players are granted 10 free spins. During this special round, each of the 5 Vikings becomes associated with a particular reel. After every free spin, all Vikings contribute a beer each to the reel containing them, as well as contributing a symbol to their associated reel. Accumulating six instances of the same symbol activates Level 1 on the corresponding reel, and each additional set of three symbols collected thereafter increases the Level, up to 7.

At the conclusion of the free spins round, the reel with the most beer mugs awards the prize it has gathered during the entire round. In case of a tie, the highest value among the tied symbols takes precedence and is awarded to the lucky player. It's important to note that free spins cannot be retriggered once the feature is activated.

Roshtein’s Take

Pub Kings possesses all the ingredients for a banger slot game! From dedicated visual design with a specific, likable style, to the badass theme, to the one-of-a-kind gameplay, this slot produces a deeply satisfying experience. I want to highlight the creative bonus where instead of looking for winning combos, all players need to focus on is counting the beers and the multipliers on the reels. If you want to play something totally different, look no further!
