Can you survive the night and be graced by the presence of the Solar Queen herself? Absolutely, in a brilliant Playson slot machine.
We weren’t expecting anything spectacular from the Solar Queen mobile slot. We like Playson games, but they always seem to sit somewhere in the ‘Yeah, ok, not bad’ section. Think the Imperial Fruits slot or the Claws Vs Paws review.
So how did this get the full 5 stars? By giving us lots and lots and lots of wilds.
The game is set at night, overlooking the Nile River, which makes a nice difference from the usual golden tones of otherEgypt themed slot machines. You get those every 10 spins as the solar flare comes out and dawn arrives, giving you all those wild symbols we promised.
As you spin these 5 reels and 4 rows, you’ll notice that sun symbols will drop on the screen and leave behind a burning frame. You’ll also notice that the wins are not particularly impressive during that time, even with the Egyptian Queen standing stacked 3 symbols high.
You may even notice that if another sun symbols land on a frame, it increases the multiplier on all further wins. Neat right? And yet, somehow… still nothing impressive.
You have to wait until the 10th spin to see all the action. Every single one of those frames will light up with wild symbol. Usually, that can be as little as 3 symbols, but most of the time you get upwards of 5 wilds.
Getting wins of 20x to 50x your bet is not unusual. It’s fun to watch and wait for that magical 10th spin, even if it means you cannot change your bet until those 10 spins are over, as otherwise, it all resets again.
The Serengeti Kings slot tries do a similar concept, but instead of giving you wilds, you get high paying symbols. It doesn’t quite work because you are paying for an uncertain future.
And whilst the 10th spin is no guarantee you’ll win big, most of the time, your patience pays off in this Solar Queen slot. This is especially true during the free spin bonus round.
Why? Because the sun creates wild automatically, you don’t have to wait to that 10th spin. Better yet, the multiplier transfer over from the base game, so your chances of getting to that 10x multiplier is increased.
Despite the slight downfall of having to stick to one bet for 10 spins at a time, it’s fine because most of the big wins happen on that 10th spin – meaning you can increase your bet and get a good slot strategy going if you’re into that kind of thing.

Wilds: The Framed sun is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols in a payline.
Stacked Symbol: The Pharoah Queen is the highest paid symbol on the reels and comes stacked 3 symbols high at all times.
Flaming Frames Feature: This feature is activated on a 10 spin cycle. For those 10 spins, every sun that shows up on the reels will leave behind a frame. If a sun lands on a frame that's already there, it increases the multiplier at the top - which affects all wins from that point onward.
On the 10th spins, all the frames get wilds dropped on it, and any win will be multiplied if you increased the multiplier. The max multiplier you can get is 10x. The feature then resets.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 scatters trigger 10 free spins. If you've gained a multiplier on the top of the screen, it comes with you onto the Solar Queen bonus games. The difference here is that when a sun lands on the reels, it will immediately turn into a wild and stay sticky for the duration of the bonus games. The multiplier can increase by catching more sun symbols on top of other sun symbols, up to that magical 10x multiplier.
There is something wonderfully fun about this Solar Queen mobile slot. You don't get many casino slots where you can predict where you might get those big wins.
That's not to say you will get a big win every 10th spin, but there is something exciting about watching that spin come around and seeing the results - especially as most of the time you do get enough to keep you going.
This is a nice even-paying slot that gives you the opportunity for huge wins, but mostly it just brings lots of excitement in a short space of time.
Solar Queen is a 5x4 reel slot with 20 paylines, scatters, wilds, free spins, multiplier and wild frames that give you guaranteed wilds every 10 spins.
