Royal Family is a 5 reel game that is 4 symbols high. It has 25 paylines, playing from left to right.
This slot has a medieval theme to it. You get a nonspecific royal family, each member equally outrageous, you get the castle that they live in and the Jester that keeps them all entertained.

Free Spins – The “Trophy” is the Free Spins symbol. You need 3 or more of the Free Spins symbols to trigger the feature.
