Old King Cole is part of the Rhyming Reels series of pokies from Microgaming. Although Microgaming have some of the best pokie series in the industry and although they are very consistent with their creations, this series has been very hit and miss. There are some impressive titles, but you will also find some of the worst games Microgaming have created here.
So, which category does Old King Cole fit into? To find out for yourself, pay a visit to Spin Palace. To learn what we thought of it, read on.
The visuals on this pokie are a little dated and incredibly cheesy. Many of the symbols also seem to be a little too random, and not all of them seem to have anything to do with the nursery rhyme.
The RTP is not too bad, coming in at a strong 96%, and there are also some big wild symbols, returning more money than any other symbol, and an Auto-play function to speed things along. The most you can win on the base game is 900x your line bet.
Old King Cole uses a coin system. You can play between 1 and 10 coins per line, with the value of these set between $0.01 and $0.50 each, creating a wide betting range and one that should please most players.
The main bonus round is a free spins round, and you can unlock up to 15 free spins in total, all of which take place on the same reel as the base game.
There is a Gamble feature on Old King Cole that unlocks after every win, and is useful for those smaller and relatively pointless wins.
This is far from the worst game in the Rhyming Reels series, but it’s not the best either. It could have used a little polish in places, but the RTP is strong and we also liked the free spins feature, which serves to elevate the game’s worth a little.
