How to play Castle Builder

The layout of the game is different than most, with the reels set on the right of the screen and the castle you are building on the left. Castle Builder has 5 reels, 3 rows and 15 paylines and after you complete a castle you select the prince/princess’s future spouse, which awards a cash prize. The game is set in a mythical land, where royalty reigns supreme. You find yourself in the role of a master construction expert, a kindly old man, who can build glorious castles fit for society’s elite.

The gameplay is simple, yet engrossing, as you gather materials to construct your castles and progress to new jobs in distant lands. Materials are gathered by collecting them each time you spin the reels. The material has different values depending on how many you find on a payline, the more material on a payline, the higher the value of your completed castle and thus the higher the potential prize in the bonus round. Material is ranked standard, bronze, silver and gold.

The other symbols in the game include the low paying symbols – 10 (princess), J (prince), Q (queen) and K (King). The high paying symbols are the bag of gold, small and large treasure chests, the castle door and the Castle Builder wild, which substitutes all symbols except the building material symbols. The minimum bet is £0.15, the maximum bet is £15.00.

There are four kingdoms that require your building expertise, the first three have 10 castles, the fourth has 5. With each castle you build in the kingdom, more materials are required, the more materials required the higher the final prize could reach in the bonus round.

Pick the suitor bonus

The most satisfying thing about Castle Builder is reaching the final point of construction, adding the last tile to the roof of your grand castle, in preparation for the royal wedding. As previously mentioned, the finer the materials you use to construct the castle the higher the three potential prize pools you have to choose from.

With the first castle you build for the princess, you are presented with her three potential future husbands – the Frog, the Knight and the Nobleman. Looks can be deceiving, however, the Nobleman could be a peasant in disguise and award a small win, whereas the Frog could have coffers stuffed with gold and award you with a high win!
