Playtech created a new virtual store for their Kingdoms Rise series, in which players can spend tokens, acquired in any of the games, on bonus features. Now they are set to expand this ground-breaking pokie game series with Shadow Queen. Not a huge amount is known about Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen just yet, but we can surmise that it will be a 5 reel, 5 row 500+ payline low variance pokie. Read for our full Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen preview below!
Most of the Kingdoms Rise games, such as Forbidden Forest and Scorching Clouds, are deeply rooted in fantasy lands, and so its expected that Shadow Queen’s theme will very much be along the same lines. The Kingdoms Rise games tend to be heavily focused on characters too - so expect that the ‘Shadow Queen’ plays a big part in this.
The most unique feature of Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen is certainly going to be its shared token balance with other Kingdoms Rise games. These tokens can be used to purchase bonus features like free spins and respins in the shared Kingdoms Rise store.
When it does eventually get released at top online casinos the game is expected to have an extremely high maximum bet between the 1000 and 2000 mark and will have over 500 ways to win every spin - so definitely suited to higher-stakes players.
Looking at other Kingdoms Rise games we can guess what the Shadow Queen online pokie controls will be like. The controls for Shadow Queen will sit at the bottom of the screen on both desktop, Android and iPhone.
There will be an autoplay feature and a unique ‘map’ feature which allows you to swap between different Kingdoms Rise games without leaving the game client. The bottom left of the RPG style world map is pretty empty, which tells us that the Shadow Queen world may exist there.
The details of Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen’s bonus and free spins features are currently quite sparse, but having played Sands of Fury, Forbidden Forest and Scorching Clouds we can guess that Shadow Queen will be choc full of engaging features for all levels of pokie player.
For example, in Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury there is a ‘Wild Fury’ feature that can be activated. This is when wild symbols are locked in place for the following spin. If you hit continue the wild will stay in place while the ‘character’ option will turn all characters into wilds. You also have a 5 respins option which gives 5 respins with all characters wild. It’s likely that we’ll see a similar feature to ‘Wild Fury’ in Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen.

The maximum win in Kingdoms Rise games tends to be incredibly high. This is because the maximum bet varies from 1000 to 2000 coins. The volatility of the games tends to be between low and medium. For these reasons, we’re expecting that Kingdoms Rise will have a max bet of at least 1000 and will be low variance. The RTP of Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen should be around 96%.
As Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen is yet to be released it’s impossible for us to provide a transparent, clear verdict on the pokie at this time. If you want to read our full Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen review when the pokie is released make sure to bookmark this page!
