Our Review

The thing about this game is that it is not really like a conventional slot machine. The design centres around getting you interested so you come back to build more castles and expand your kingdom. It is a bit like raising your level each time you play, like Candy Crush. Forgive me for pointing that out, just an observation.


A great deal of design must have been necessary to develop the extensive graphics which are first class. We really liked the appealing cartoon like characters which are somewhat Disneyfied, The production is classy, well executed and typical of Microgaming productions.

Those of you who enjoy playing the original precedent game, Castle Builder will certainly relish this latest production.

If you are new to Castle Builder it is important to remember that to benefit from the best win rate you will need a generous budget. You will also need that to benefit from using all the features in the game. Maybe you should start with a low bet and coin rate and see how you get on.
