If you've ever fancied pitting your poker skills and wits against some of the old-style cardsharps in a time when river boats provided the perfect place for a poker competition - the it's time to come aboard the "River Queen", an online slot game from Novomatic.
Aboard the River Queen you can win prizes galore for hitting top poker hands like four aces, whilst there are also a whole host of bonus games in which you can hit the big-time.
But don't be worrying that you'll need a massive stake to sit down at the poker table, as River Queen has been designed with all types of poker and slot players in mind. Simply choose a stake to suit your style of play and budget - and pull up a chair.
The River Queen provides a beautiful setting for some top-class poker and slot action, and you'll soon be whisked back to a bygone era by the fantastically designed backdrop. There's also an added bonus of a beautiful young woman who seems to have her eye on winning the heart of an exciting and rich gambler.
There are loads of ways to win on the River Queen, but the journey will most likely start with a few hands of poker in which the better the hand the more you'll win. Winning hands require a minimum of three 9's in this form of River Queen Poker, but you can look forward to bigger payouts when you hit four-of-a-kind including 10s, Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces.
You'll also win prizes the more chips you can amass on a single spin, whilst there's also a game of craps (dice) going on if you want to win a prize for rolling them out there. You'll also want to beat the smug looking card sharp that's everyone's favourite to win the tournament, and the heart of the beautiful girl, but she'll also be happy to reward when you show her just how horrible he is.
The beautiful girl is also likely to go a little Wild after that, and that will give her the power to substitute for all the game’s base symbols in a bid to create more winning prizes. Meanwhile, the ship itself is the game’s Scatter Symbols and these have the power to award high wins by multiplying your total bet. Three Scatter Symbols will also trigger 10 free spins during which additional Wilds will appear.
If you want a seat at the River Queen poker table then simply chose to play either 1, 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 lines, then give each line a value of between 0.01 and 1.0. This allows a minimum stake of 0.01 coins a spin, and a maximum stake of 50 coins per spin.
As the song says, there’s a time for gambling, but with a great adventure, themed payouts and bonuses – the dealing won’t be done for a while yet!
