While lions are considered the kings of all animals, even royalty has its stages. And by rarity, grace and power, none are as grand as white lions, whose fur color makes them a rare sight outside of zoos. Playtech has already made a slot before honoring these powerful beasts and in 2018, another round of veneration is in order, as White King II has been released. It offers a rather simplistic visual style, with tall mountains and a sprawling savannah domineering the barely seen backdrop, as the large reels cover most of it from view.
As far as gameplay goes, White King II takes a slight departure from its predecessor in an effort to try and create its own thing. You play White King II on a 5x4 playing field with 40 flexible paylines allowing gamblers to turn them on or off to lower their costs, but also drop their winning chances as a result. Special features include symbols appearing doubled as well as a free spins bonus.
Play White King II
All symbols with unique artwork can appear as doubles. They include the white lion family, hawks, crowns and Scatters. These double symbols do count as if there are two of them on one reel, meaning you can form ten-of-a-kind wins, which can reach some sizeable prizes if you’re lucky enough.
White King II’s double symbols are handled decently well. The feature makes for a nice, symbolic addition. The impact of double symbols, however, can feel a bit lost in translation while you’re playing. You can manage to score from time to time, but it never feels like the double icons really do anything special and you just get used to them after a while.
How to Play
Between $0.40 and $400 can be wagered per spin, assuming you leave all paylines active, which you should, as lowering the number of active paylines drops your chances of winning quite a bit. The largest jackpot in the game is worth 100,000 coins for a ten-of-a-kind Wild win.
Gamblers have access to the Autoplay feature which allows them to set the number of spins they want to undertake or to spin until they hit a special feature. There are no settings for a loss limit or a win threshold.
Strategy & Tips
Collect three, four, five or six Scatters at the same time and you win a minor cash prize along with 5, 15, 25 or 50 free spins, respectively. During free spins, you get more stacked white lions appearing on the reels and you can continue to trigger the free spins over and over indefinitely if you’re lucky enough.
The only thing we can really recommend to players is to budget accordingly as they play through White King II. It may be tempting to follow that winning streak with bigger bets, but the reward isn’t usually worth the risk.
There are no major differences between the mobile and desktop versions. You can play White Lion II wherever you are.
