Solar King is a brand-new game from the industry-leading software developers at Playson. The company was established back in 2012. While this means they are relatively new in the online slots world when compared with the likes of Play’n Go, for example, they have still had plenty of time to release hundreds of award-winning online slot games. Other popular titles from Playson include Phoenix Fire, Space Lights, Treasure of Tombs, and Juice ‘n’ Fruits. Solar King is the sequel to the much-loved Solar Queen online slot that was released a year before Solar King in September 2019.
This game is played across a 5×4 set of reels with 50 pay lines. Bets start from £0.20 per spin and reach a maximum of £100 per spin for the high rollers among you. You can expect exciting game features like guaranteed sticky wilds, multipliers, and free spins. All of which will help you land additional prizes on top of the standard gameplay. The maximum win which can be achieved by triggering the progressive multipliers is an enormous 2221x your stake. Read the rest of the review to find out more about this fantastic game from Playson.
Graphics and Theme
The graphics in this game are relatively simple but crisp, clean and high-quality. The backdrop to the reels is a vast sandy desert at sundown. The foreground shows the rolling hills created by sand dunes that are red due to the fact they’re catching the last glimpse of sunlight. At the top of the screen, you will see the blue starry sky. The stars twinkle on the sand creating a dynamic effect on the screen. The reels are encased with a golden border and have a royal blue background. All of the symbols are Egyptian themed and include some of the gods the ancients used to worship.
The theme tune is an Egyptian inspired song that features drums, tambourines, lyres, lutes, the shepherd’s pipe, and the flute. Playson has created an enticing song that will keep you in a trance-like focus as you hit spin. The reels spin with a flickering noise and various celebration sounds explode from your speakers as winning combos, and special symbols land on your screen.
Solar King symbols
The low paying symbols in the game are 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. All will pay out 1.5x your stake for five of a kind. The middle tier of symbols includes a stalk, a cat, an eagle, and a lion. All will pay out a 3x your stake for five of a kind. The top tier of symbols includes the gods Horus and Bastet, and a Pharaoh. Horus and Bastet payout 3.75x your stake for five of a kind, while the Pharaoh pays out 10x your stake for five of a kind.
The wild symbol that can substitute for all symbols except the scatter is worth 10x your stake for five of a kind. There is also an eagle scatter symbol and a sun symbol that unlock special features in the game.
Flaming frames feature
This feature works on a 10-spin cycle. When a sun symbol lands during the ten spins, it will leave a flaming frame around that space on the reels. It will remain there until the end of the cycle. If another sun symbol lands on the same space, a 2x multiplier will be applied to that space for the first instance. For every new sun symbol that lands on the same space from then on, a +1-multiplier will be added. On the 10th spin, all flaming frames will turn into wild symbols to help you make winning combos. After that, all flaming frames are removed, and you start again.
The same multipliers that are created during the flaming frames feature can be used in the normal game too. If a flaming frame multiplier is located on a winning pay line, your winnings will be multiplied. If there is more than one flaming frames multiplier present, they will be added together and then applied to your winnings.
If you land three scatter symbols on reels one, three, and five, you will trigger ten free spins. During the free spins round any sun symbols that land will automatically become wild symbols and remain in their cell for the duration of the free spins.

To play Solar King, the first thing you need to do is select your betting value which can be between £0.20 and £100 per spin.
