Solar Queen Slot Review

Released July 2019

The Solar Queen game can be found at casinos offering Playson software. Playson are an established online gaming provider that have an impressive array of clients. Their games can most often be found as an addition to a larger primary gaming platform provider. Playson do not publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable or on the company website. However, the game has been picked up by casinos UK who must publish this information in their own RTP table. As such, we know that the House Edge for Solar Queen is 4.22%.

Solar Queen is a 5 reel game that is 4 symbols high. The game uses 20 standard paylines, playing from left to right.

Special Symbols

Wilds – The Wild symbol will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. The Wild symbol only appears after the full 10 Solar Spins have finished and then again only in a space that contains a “Sun” symbol. I will explain how this feature works more further down in the review.

Scatter – The game’s Scatter symbol is the “Scarab Beetle”. 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels will trigger the slot’s Free Spins feature. “Scarab Beetle” symbols only appear on reels 1,3 and 5 and only during the main game.

Sun – Sun symbols are non-paying. When they land on a reel they will turn into burning spaces on the reels, where they will remain for the duration of the Solar Spins. By the end of the Solar Spins they will turn into Wild symbols.

Bonus Features

Free Spins – 3 or more of the “Scarab Beetles” symbols anywhere on the reels at once will trigger the Free Spins feature. You will be awarded 10 Free Spins and unlike the main game, when the “Sun” symbols land, they will immediately turn into Wild symbols, and will remain there until the end of the Free Spins feature. Whatever “Winnings Multiplier” is in place when the Free Spins are triggered will be applied to all wins during the feature.

Flaming Frames – The Flaming Frames feature works during a series of 10 spins. There is a bar at the top right side of the screen and every time you spin a space on the bar will fill. Once all 10 spaces have been filled, that Solar cycle finishes and a new cycle of 10 spins begins. When Sun symbols land on the reels they will set a symbols space on fire for the remainder of the Solar cycle. Those spaces will turn into Wilds during the final spin of the cycle.

Winnings Multiplier – During the main game each time a sun lands in a symbols space that is already on fire, you will increase the Winnings Multiplier at the top of the reels by 1. The maximum it can reach is 10 times the bet. During the Free Spins a multiplier is applied that is equal to the level of the Winnings Multiplier when it is triggered and will award that number times the bet on all winning spins.


Solar Queen is one of those games that proves that there really is no pleasing some Slots reviewers. Playson have done everything I’ve asked them to do in previous reviews and I’m still not happy. The game is imaginative, with features that tie in well with the theme. It looks good too but I do have one gripe. The house edge is higher than I would want it to be. So whilst this is an improvement it has come at a literal cost, making this a game I would recommend but not as highly as if they had reigned in the RTP a little more.
