Slotland Goes Medieval With New Castle Siege Slot

Plenty of action in multi-featured game

Online casino operator Slotland will launch its next in-house developed slot early next week, introducing the multi-featured, 5 reel 30 pay-line Castle Siege online slot.

The new game takes players on an a medieval quest to destroy a castle and win its treasures. It has Sticky Wilds, three jackpots and a bonus game where players do battle for the riches of the kingdom.

Jewel-encrusted goblets, orbs and crowns spin on the new game’s five reels.

Three or more Bonus scatter symbols start the Catapult Bonus Game where players attempt to destroy the castle and take its treasures. The castle can be demolished one wall at a time or by hitting the Gunpowder Storage Tower.

Destroying the castle wins one of the three local jackpots.

“The Catapult Bonus Game is a fun way to hit a jackpot – you choose your weapon and fire it at the castle!” explains Slotland manager Michael Hilary. “The game’s Mini, Major and Grand jackpots aren’t just for fun though. The more paylines you play and the more you bet on them the higher the jackpots will be.” On special royal occasions, the castle’s trumpets and red and blue flags are out. When they are, Wilds trigger free spins. During free spins, Wilds are sticky and also replicate themselves in other positions on the reels.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
