The Lost Princess Anastasia

The Lost Princess Anastasia slot is a fairytale-esque five-reel, non-progressive game by Microgaming. With 25 thrilling pay-lines and lucrative features including free spins, scatters and wilds, there’s every bit of luck that you’ll have a happy ending, unlike the unfortunate heroine.

The game is based on the tale of the 20th century Russian princess, Anastasia, who was the youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II. In true fairytale style, it isn’t a particularly cheerful story, so we apologise in advance for the slightly depressing opening …… while the entire family was allegedly executed by the Bolshevik secret police in 1918, rumours quickly spread that the 17-year-old had managed to escape.

Whether or not the rumour is true, the story has certainly inspired many tales in more recent years, and The Lost Princess Anastasia slot helps to tell the tale of the royal Russian teenager in enchanting detail.
The game’s icy theme gives it a magical appearance, and the various symbols on the reels look like sparkling crystals. Included are playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K, and ace, as well as Rasputin, Dmitri, and Anastasia herself.

Some might think this is a game for girls, but don’t let the title or the visuals stop you playing if you are not in touch with your feminine side. The game is absorbing and entertaining so should keep even the most highly testosterone-charged players happy.

The Lost Princess Anastasia slot is affordable for players with all types of budget thanks to a relatively low betting range of 0.01 up to 50.00; and with the ability to bet with twenty coins per line this should appeal to the High Rollers amongst you. The top jackpot is worth 40,000 coins, which is certainly a payout worthy of a princess if ever there was one.

Wild symbol:
The Anastasia logo acts as the game’s wild symbol and will substitute for all others except scatters. Four or five-of-a-kind combinations also pay out a generous amount of 1,000 and 2,000 respectively.

Scatter symbol:
The scatter is represented by the Bonus symbol, which pays out when three or more appear anywhere on the reels, and also triggers the free spins round.

Free spins round:
Three or more scatters will reward you with five free spins. When you enter this round, you’ll see that an additional symbol has been added to the reels, and it’s a special wild. These are extremely useful as they can turn any other symbol on the reel wild as well. If a further three scatters land on the reels during this round, you’ll receive a further five free spins.

Bonus round:
The Lost Princess Anastasia slot does not include a bonus round.

Our verdict:
The Lost Princess Anastasia slot is a spellbinding game which will appeal to fans of fairytales, history and Disney films. Even if you’re not that way inclined, don’t let its romantic theme put you off, because with a 40,000 coin jackpot to play for, it’s well worth a try.
