Everyone that manages to get to the treasure on the other side is deemed worthy of donning the crown of valor!

After 200 years of comparative tranquility (Pax Romana), the Roman Empire fell into hardship, marking the start of the middle ages, otherwise known as the Dark Ages. Beginning towards the end of the fifth century and lasting until the fourteenth century, these were trying times. Hygiene was poor, diseases were rampant, and money was hard to come by, forcing castle sieges & pillages such as the one Crown of Valor teleports you to.
Initially, the game loads to an image of a deranged knight, perhaps the one the developer wants you to imagine yourself as. Click anywhere on the screen to reveal the 5×5 playing area, where 25 symbols land on every spin. A win is formed whenever at least five symbols connect to form a cluster. Watch out for the golden crown as it is the premium, paying 250x for clusters of 12 or more symbols.
When it comes to the mathematical side of things, Quickspin has built a volatility beast. That means good things can be hard to come by just like in the dark ages, but not to worry. It only takes one spin to go back to the good old days of Pax Romana with wins as big as 15619 times the bet possible. Stacking the odds in your favor is the RTP percentage figure, which is above average at 96.16%.
Tumbling Reels never get old. Symbols involved in a win disappear to be replaced by new ones that gravitate from the top, potentially leading to a new winning combination. In theory, this can go on forever, so long as each tumble results in a win.
Tumbling Reels in Crown of Valor give rise to two features, the first being burning wilds. Let’s see…
A burning wild will be among the symbols that tumble in after a win. These can substitute for any regular to complete a win. And that’s not all. An axe will be hurled at each burning wild involved in a win, increasing the win multiplier by +1. The win multiplier base is x1, always resetting when a round’s tumbles come to an end.
Every successful tumble fills the wild fire meter by +1. Requiring eighteen successful tumbles to fill, the meter activates the named feature, where the grid faces the other way to be attacked by four fireballs, which land on the grid as burning wilds, guaranteeing a win.
Three, four, and five scatter symbols award ten, fourteen, and eighteen free spins, respectively. In addition to the burning wilds involved in a win, every win increments the win multiplier by +1.
If you do not want to take the conventional route, there is an option to head straight into free spins at a cost of 80x the bet. A reasonable amount to part with to play this game at its prime there, but the feature may not be available in some jurisdictions.
