Ivanhoe is one of the most popular novels by Sir Walter Scott and it seems that it is a perfect theme for an online slot, as the slot of the same name, developed by Elk Studios has shown us. This is a very unique game where many different elements are used.
The grid is non-standard, the reels are set in the very middle of the screen and its leftmost and rightmost sections are black and white, whereas below the reels, there is scrolling theme related text in teletext format.
This game has 3 reels and 3 rows and the reel design and the way they spin will definitely remind of the old-fashioned classic slots. There are 17 paylines which are always active. The players can choose the total stake instead of adjusting coin value and the number of coins per payline. The minimum amount that can be wagered per spin is limited to 20p, whereas the maximum stake is £100.
The maximum jackpot is 3,000. The players can set their own betting strategy and this is a feature available in many Elk Studios’ slots. The game has 6 symbols. First we have the low value fruit symbols – cherries, lemons and watermelons. The payout for these symbols are 80, 120 and 160, respectively.
Then it is the bar symbol (500), the blue 7s (1,000) and the red 7s (3,000). There’s also a red and white banner with the word ‘Ivanhoe’ which is a stacked symbol and serves as a bonus symbol. The crown serves as a wild symbol and it can substitute every symbol, except for the bonus.
The return to player percentage in Ivanhoe is 96.30%, which is pretty much in the standard range. This is a very volatile game, the wins are infrequent, but some of the prizes are quite massive.
The bonus game is triggered by 3 Ivanhoe bonus symbols, one across each reel. The bonus game has 5 levels, each with a higher multiplier. You start with 5 free spins and x2 multiplier, and then if you reach the second level you get 3 extra spins and x3 multiplier. Once you advance to the third level, you will get 3 extra free spins and x4 multiplier. The multiplier at the fourth and fifth level is x5 and x6 respectively and the number of free spins is also plus 3.
Advancing up the bonus levels isn’t too easy though. You’ll need to win x25 your stake to reach the second, x80 to reach the third, x200 to reach the forth and x810 to reach the fifth level, where you can win a jackpot worth x3,000 your wager.
If you like Medieval British history, you will definitely love Ivanhoe. The game has a unique grid setup and the visual elements are bold and innovative. Ivanhoe is the perfect game for risk-takers, as the variance is very high.
