Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest Slot Review

Playtech has really mixed things up Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest. For starters, the action takes place on a 5 reel, 576 ways to win machine. Each spin will set you back between 10p and £2,000 per spin. Winning combinations are created by landing matching symbols on adjoining reels. Take to the forests in the latest instalment of Playtech’s epic fantasy Kingdoms Rise series. Highlights here include respins with roaming wilds as well as 3 potential jackpot prizes.

Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest: Enter a wild forest realm

After the dusty deserts of Sands of Fury, Playtech has headed to greener pastures in Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest. The setting might be very different but you can expect a similar blend of classy design and exciting features. Like the other slot games in the series, there’s a high spec look to the visuals. A magical woodland is the setting. You’ll see 5 lower value gemstones, a bear and a big cat and three mighty female warriors. The sword-wielding woman in red is the best payer, awarding 2.5, 7.5 or 20 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a line. The jade gem is the wild. This replaces all the standard symbols.

Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest: Owl Respins feature

The main feature, the Owl Respins feature, is triggered by landing the gold eye mask scatter. Land 1, 2 or 3 of them on the same spin and you’ll receive 2, 4 or 12 respins. The owl mask scatter transforms into a wild for those respins and can land anywhere apart from reel 1. Hope to see a feather land on reel 3 as this adds 2 extra respins to your total.

Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest: collect tokens for more bonus features

On any spin you could see gold token symbols appear. These are collected in a meter whenever they land. Once you have 500 or more tokens, you can head to the Kingdoms Rise Shop and by a bonus feature.

The Night Owl feature

  • For 300 tokens, you’ll receive 3 respins. On the reels is a stack of 2-high scatter symbols. These act as wilds and move around the reels (apart from reel 1) with each respin. A feather on reel 3 adds 2 more respins to your tally.
  • For 750 tokens, you’ll get 3 respins with a stack of 3-high scatters. Again, these act as wild and float around the screen (bar reel 1). The feather can award up to 4 extra respins here.
  • For an investment of 1,500 tokens, you’ll receive 3 respins with 2 stacks of 2 high scatters in play. These perform all the same wild functions as previously. Land the feather and it can add up to 4 extra respins.

Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest: Kingdoms Rise Jackpot feature

Like the other Kingdoms Rise slot games, Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest offers a chance to land 1 of 3 progressive jackpot prizes. These can strike at random on any spin and if you’re playing at any stake level. The biggest is the Epic Jackpot which has no limits or restrictions.

Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest: Fantastic forest

Playtech has created another very playable slot game in Kingdoms Rise: Forbidden Forest. The sound and visuals are superb. Take the token element out and the gameplay is rather simple. We landed the respins regularly though which kept things ticking over. If you fill the reels with the top symbol, you will pocket a 11,520 times stake payout!

Collecting tokens can take a long time but if you have the patience the Night Owl can deliver some top action. Put that together and the Forbidden Forest is worth a visit. I would also recommend you try Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss which is the best Kingdoms Rise slot game in my opinion.
