Players should get ready to begin an epic adventure if the famous story is anything to go by. Written by Sir Walter Scott and published in 1820, the narrative starts way back in 1194, during a time of upheaval and unrest. As well as Ivanhoe himself a number of other well-known characters also appear in the game, including Robin Hood and Richard the Lionheart.
Although debate continues as to the accuracy of the story itself, we don’t worry about that here. The game makes no claims as an exact historical reference and the aim is for players to have fun, nothing more. Fingers crossed some winning matches appear on the reels.
Elk Studios' Ivanhoe contains some nice unique features as volatility is around the mid range, and with 17 paylines, that means quite a decent win pace. The base game offers players a top level win if 3000x multiplier for landing a string of three red sevens on one payline, which is really rather good. The betting strategies feature is another aspect of Ivanhoe which differs slightly from other more mainstream pokies.
Players can select automatic betting levels simply by utilising the strategies menu. Some of the most fun and popular modifiers include the Optimiser, which will automatically place bets according to the credit balance. Then there is the Leveller, which will raise the betting level by two after five losses in a row. One loss will see the Booster upping bets by one, but will also keep it static after four wins.
The Jumper will up the betting limit by one level after each win until a total of four wins have been achieved, when it will then plateau. For players looking for a more simplified route to win, however, there is the facility to bet in the normal way, with a minimum wager amount of 0.2 credits and maximum of 100 credits.
The crown wild will help players match extra symbols during basic game play. There is also a freespins bonus round, triggered when three of the bonus banners appear across the reels. Players advance through the different levels in the bonus round each time their bonus winnings grow. Finally, there is a huge 300,000 coin jackpot on offer.
