Queen of the Sun Game Review
Ever since we’ve added several new slots into our online casino in Canada, players have been exploring them and determining which ones are their favourites. One of the top picks is the game Queen of the Sun, a Booongo game, with its signature Hold & Win mechanics, that was released earlier this year.
Queen of the Sun is a 5-reel online slot game that will take you to a sacred Aztec site full of unclaimed treasures. Ever since it was launched, people have been drawn to it for various reasons. The game’s features are unique, the theme is compelling, the bonus round is fun and it’s easy to trigger. Best of all – the payouts are significant due to the game’s high volatility. If a trip to an Aztec archeological site filled with precious artifacts and bathed in morning sun appeals to you, read on to learn about the features and bonuses that make the Queen of the Sun online slot game one of the best at Bodog Casino.
Queen of the Sun Format
The game features a standard five-reel and 25 payline format, with three rows. The game icons are divided in two: High and Low. The Low symbols are the card ranks Jack, Queen, King and Ace, while the High symbols are Aztec carvings plus two bonuses. Bets range from $0.25 per spin to $30 per spin, making it accessible to everyone.
Queen of the Sun Game Features
Two bonus icons to watch for on the reels include the Queen of the Sun character and the Aztec temple. The Queen of the Sun is a wild and she not only substitutes for other game icons to create more wins, but also awards a payout when you line up three or more on a payline. She pays far more than even the biggest High symbol on the paytable.
The Temple symbol also has the dual purpose of awarding a payout when you land matches on a payline, while also serving as a bonus. In this case, it’s a scatter that triggers the game’s free spins feature. Eight free spins are awarded right off the bat, and throughout the session, the wilds turn into sticky wilds and stay in place for the entire session. For each sticky wild you land, and there are many, you get an extra five free spins added to your session.
Queen of the Sun Bonus Rounds
On the reels, Blazing Sun symbols appear with dollar values flashing on them. Landing six of them on any given spin triggers the game’s Hold & Win bonus. This takes you to a special set of reels that contain only Blazing Sun icons—and you get to spin the reels three times. Three spins may seem a little low at first, but those spins are replenished every time you land a new bonus symbol, and each new bonus symbol sticks to the reels for the duration of the round. The round continues until one of two things happens:
- you deplete all of your re-spins
- you fill all of the reels with bonus symbols
During the bonus round, there will be a mix of Blazing Sun symbols. Most will have monetary values displayed on them, while others will say Mini, Major or Minor, which correspond with the jackpots displayed above the reels. At the end of the bonus round, the values of each bonus symbol are combined with the jackpots for your total payout. The fourth jackpot, called the Grand jackpot, which is displayed over the reels, is reserved for players who complete the bonus round with all 15 bonus symbols on the reels.
Another unique icon that is only available in the bonus round is the Mystery symbol. This Aztec symbol does not reveal itself until the very end of the bonus round, at which point, you’ll get to see which jackpot (Mini for 20X, Minor for 50X or Major for 150X) it represents.
Queen of the Sun RTP
Short for Return to Player, the RTP of casino games has a direct impact on the payouts of a game. It’s essentially the total dollar bet minus the house edge; the greater the RTP, the more money is returned to you through triggered payouts. Queen of the Sun has a generous 95.77% RTP, so in theory you win back $0.9577 for every $1 bet. That number becomes more accurate over the long run.
Play Queen of the Sun with Crypto
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have become popular deposit methods at Bodog. It leads to greater promotions and faster transactions, among other perks. When you deposit with a cryptocurrency, you can access all of the great games in our casino, including the Queen of the Sun slot.
Fortunately, you aren’t expected to place bets in Bitcoin. Once the crypto funds reach your Bodog account, they’re converted to USD automatically, so you’ll see your balance in USD as usual. When you launch a session of Queen of the Sun, or any casino game for that matter, your bet will be displayed in USD too, making it easy to keep track of your account balance even if you want to benefit from depositing with one of the many accepted cryptocurrencies.
Queen of the Sun can be played free of charge in Practice Play mode. Look for it on the New Games page, and select Practice Play upon launch. This will set you up with a $1,000 balance in fun money that you can use to test out the game. Configure the bet size and see how it changes the jackpots and game payouts. Then go ahead and spin the reels. If you like the way it feels, switch over to Real Play mode for real money payouts. The queen will not wait for long.
