Dungeon Quest is not your run-of-the-mill fantasy-themed mobile pokie, far from it. Sure, it carries plenty of colourful imagery and characters, gemstones and fantastical elements just like you would expect.
However, this game features a payline and gameplay structure which just doesn’t play ball with other pokies. Developed by No Limit City, this game is deliberately different from what we’re used to seeing as the providers aim to make a name for themselves.
How to play
This new No Limit City developed game features just 5 reels, but there is something bizarre about them. For starters, there are 29 paylines present on the reels. This presents a vast gaming screen, quite unlike other pokies.
None of those paylines is adjustable, but the wagering range is still remarkably flexible. For a kick-off, players are going to be able to wager as little as $0.20 per spin on this mobile pokie. If players do wish to flex their financial muscles when it comes to bet, maximum wagers are capped at $100 a pop.
Wild symbols: Wild symbols do appear in this game, and they can substitute for all other symbols barring scatters. Wilds appear as “W” icons and can dish out decent wins worth 100 coins if 5 appear on a line.
Ways to win: Winning in this game is slightly different than you might expect. For starters, players don’t have to bag a winning combo from the leftmost reel over to the rightmost. They can win from the rightmost to the leftmost. In fact, it is even possible to win the middle of the reels. This is the beauty of the 29 lines which do appear in this mobile pokie.
Power Stone bonus: This is triggered at any point in the base game. When it is, a big rock will fall onto the reels, crushing symbols into a colossal 2×2 wild. The Power Stone bonus may also turn one of the standard ore icons (and all its identical symbols) into wilds, too.
Gem Force bonus: This feature is another randomly triggered bonus. Like the previous bonus, it can transform an ore icon, although this time it turns all ore symbols into the same icon. Following on from that, it will then turn all ore icons into gemstone symbols.
Alchemy free spin bonus: Dungeon Quest’s main free spin bonus is triggered when 3 or more scatter icons (appearing as rocks) appear on the reels in any position. A total of 4 Alchemy spins are paid out to the player, with each one seeing one type of ore icon turned into sticky wilds which remain in place for all 4 spins.
Dungeon Quest offers up a non-progressive jackpot which is worth 100 coins. There are various ways you can win this prize. For starters, you can land 5 wilds on a line.
Alternatively, you can land 5 of the gemstone symbols on a line (any of them will do) to bag that prize in this game, which boasts an RTP (return to player) rate of 96.27%.
Dungeon Quest is something of a mixed bag of a pokie. It is part The Hobbit, part gemstone-themed video pokie. There is an exciting array of features to be getting on with in this game, and the cheap bets and generous prizes don’t hurt either.
