If you’re a fan of the Spanish thriller T.V. series El Principe, then you’re in luck. Skywind Group has created the video slot game adaptation complete, with all the thrills and the suspense of the television show.
Look out for classic characters and unique iconography scattered throughout this title. Any fans of the series will easily be able to point out key people and locations from simply spinning the reels.
Let’s have a look and see how Skywind software managed to bring this intense television show to the world of online gaming and find out if it stays true to the source material.
Theme & Symbols
Obviously based around the T.V. show of the same name, El Principe lifts almost all of its visuals, symbols and sounds directly from the television thriller.
Starting off, when you launch the game you are greeted with a video that explains exactly who the characters are that you’ll be seeing throughout your time with the game. This is great for newcomers and fans of the show alike.
The grid is set in the centre of a backdrop containing the city in which the show takes place. The sun is setting and lights are on in the houses dotting the landscape. It makes you feel like you’re at the heart of it all.
The music is fast paced, much like life in the world of El Principe, every now and then you’ll hear characters talking making you feel like you’re in the show. The sound effects that play alongside the game feel slightly out of place given the serious nature of the show the game is based around but it isn’t distracting at all.
The animation quality is superb. The reels spin effortlessly and the short clips that play when you land winning combos using high-paying symbols is a nice touch.
The low-paying icons are nothing special, they’re standard playing card values starting with 10, J, Q, K and A. You’ll be seeing these quite often.
Next are the high-paying symbols. These are all represented by characters from the show. You’ll see Morey, Fatima, Fran, Faruq and Khaled all make an appearance.
There are lots of different Wild symbols in this game. There’s one for each of the characters mentioned above all having unique effects and bonuses. There are also Medallion Wilds that are represented by dog tags, each of those also have unique effects. The standard Wild is represented by a red symbol with the word ‘WILD’ written across it, this one substitutes for any common icon in the game.
The Bonus Medallion dog tag icon appears on reels 1, 2 and 3 and triggers certain gameplay features.
Finally there is the El Principe heart that represents the Scatter. Landing enough of these will trigger bonus spins.
