HOW TO PLAY IVANHOE
Legends of old always send shivers down our spines. The older they are, the more outrageous the accomplishments of the heroes tend to be. The protagonist of Sir Walter Scott’s 1820 novel, Sir Wilfred Ivanhoe is depicted as a valiant hero that goes to battle in the name of Richard the Lionheart, the rightful king of England. The background of the slot refers to these medieval times by depicting a tournament.
Think about knights in armour about to collide while the crowd is cheering – the sound of horses galloping really adds to the suspense. To further enhance the theme, there are symbols on the reels that relate to it, like a red and white banner and the king’s golden crown. The rest of the symbols fit in the whole retro style. You’ll see juicy watermelons, yellow lemons and delicious cherries on the reels, as well as red and blue sevens. The good ol’ BAR symbol will also feature on the screen.
The simplistic layout doesn’t get in the way of smooth gameplay. Ivanhoe benefits from 3 reels and 17 paying lines, which sounds strange in theory but works well in practice. The distribution of symbols after every spin makes way to a highly volatile game mechanism and big wins, even in the base play outside the bonus round. Recognisable Elk Studio’s design can be noted on the buttons, and you can easily adjust various settings. The most important thing you should attune to your liking is the betting level.
Ivanhoe offers you four betting strategies to choose from: Optimizer, Leveller, Booster and Jumper. These automatic bet level modifiers will balance your bet values in accordance with your wins and loses. Chose the one that suits your gaming style best and watch the narrative unfold. If you like observing the reels spin and you maybe want to read the interesting info on the animated portion below the reels, you can initiate Autoplay and pause for 10 or 100 spins.
