Ivanhoe is a Sir Walter Scott novel from 1820, and one which showcases the Middle Ages and events from the time. The main character is Wilfred Ivanhoe, and in this ELK Studios developed slot, you get to go into battle with the title character as he fights alongside Richard the Lionheart. Ivanhoe is quite similar to another major historical themed slot from this developer – Poltava – and offers up the usual number of 17 paylines on its 5 reels. Players will be able to spin the reels of this slot for as little as 20p per game, or they can wager as much as £100 a game if they wish. Top cash prizes are capped at 3,000 coins in total.
The crown acts as a wild symbol in this slot machine game, and it can substitute itself for all other symbols in the game, barring the scatter icon, which is known as the Ivanhoe Bonus symbol in this game. It takes the shape of a red and white flag.
Players are going to want to keep their eyes peeled for the Ivanhoe bonus symbol (the aforementioned red and white flag). When this icon appears on the reels 3 times, a multi-tiered bonus round is activated.
The bonus in this slot is a free games feature. However, players can work their way through the multi-tiered bonus levels, pocketing cash prizes as they go. If you do manage to work your way up through a level, you can take any remaining free spins along with you to the next level. There are 5 levels in all, and at the end of it, you could walk away with a non-progressive prize which is worth 3,000 coins.
Ivanhoe is a decent slot machine game. Is it as good as the old television series of the same name? No. It does have a few nifty features and is certainly going to be more memorable in players’ minds that ELK Studios’ other historical themed battle slot, Poltava: Flames of War.
