Crowning Glory

There are some game providers who are very well known, but unluckily BetDigital is not one of them. Serious gamers, though, know BetdDgital very well. This is because they have come up with some fabulous games earlier. Those games have interesting but limited bonus rounds. They combine classic themes and simple storyboards. Crowning Glory by BetDigital is one such game. There is nothing new in its architecture, though. There are five reels and three rows, with twenty fixed paylines. You will see the symbols and game screen on a very ornate background of frames. These framed borders encase an eye-catching purple background. Some nice touches are the shields being used as markers in between paylines. This game can be played on all devices including your smartphone.


Crowning Glory – RTP and Maximum Win

The name Crowning Glory is apt because this game deals with gems and gold. Your expected return to player rate for Crowning Glory is, therefore, a reasonably high 96.41%. This signifies that the House advantage is lower than many other games. The minimum bet for this regal game is not beyond the reach of the common man. You can start playing from just £0.20, which is not too much higher than many games. If you are wary of even this amount before you get a hold of this game, there are options for you. You can check for the ‘play for free’ option on this game that most casinos across the world offer initially. The highest bet might disappoint you, though, especially if you are an experienced gamer. You can bet at most £25 for a spin, which is disappointing, to say the least.


Crowning Glory Symbols

The symbols of Crowning are exactly aligned to the theme of riches. Apart from the lucrative ones, there are a few low scorers as well. Another unique feature of the Crowning Glory game is the giant sets. The standard symbols can appear as giant 3x3 or 2x2 ones on the reel.

Let us tell you about a short list of the symbols you could expect to see:

  • Card symbols – Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten (lower values)
  • Red gem (higher values)
  • Green gem (higher values)
  • Blue gem (higher values)
  • Jewel encrusted silver crown (highest values)

Crowning Glory is part of the Bar-X series of games from Bardigital. This set of games is otherwise simple in its layout. But because this game has a regal theme, the regal color (of purple) of the background and the use of golden frames are made. Of the symbols named above, the crown attracts the highest payouts of up to 500 coins.

Usually, casino slot games have a Wild and a Scatter symbol, which have better payouts and also unleash some special features. But Crowning Glory does not have any Wild symbols. The only special symbols it carries are the bonus symbols, and these can be carried only on the first, third, and fifth reels. The bonus rounds this Scatter symbol triggers is dealt with in the next section.


Crowning Glory Bonus

Royal Reels is one of the bonus features of this game. This can be randomly awarded on any spin. The wheel of fortune would show up on your screen. After it has spun and come to a stop, it reveals one of the ten symbols. That symbol gets transferred to the reels. Once this happens, you are assured a lucrative win of five symbols. If the scatter symbol is selected while this is on, you can get as many as 12 free spins.

The second bonus feature is the Free Spins rounds. When you get the Scatter (golden crown) symbol anywhere on the first, third, and fifth reels, this free spins feature gets triggered. Every Scatter that you land can grant you an extra spin. But unlike some other games we reviewed, the free round can’t be retriggered. Also, please keep in mind that the free spins would carry the same stake as the game which had triggered them.



Most average gamers want a bit of everything in the casino slot game they like to play. They hope for good returns occurring fairly regularly, and they want an uncomplicated storyboard. Very few games have both. For Crowning Glory, let us first get done with what we didn’t like. As BetDigital is known for their simplicity, we found this game too simple for our taste. But there are many players who would actually like it and feel confident playing it. The layout, setup, and the mechanics are definite pluses. The returns too are not exactly depressing, although we also have seen a better return to player rates in other games. If you are a new player or someone who doesn’t like too many thrills, this game is perfect for you.
