Castle Builder II: Is This the Best Slots Game of 2017?

Every year, a myriad of slot machines are released through social networks and specialized gaming venues online. People like them – games like Slotomania and DoubleDown are constantly among the most-played games in North America (as reflected by the stats regarding their player base and daily revenue, on iOS), and real money venues like the 7 Sultans Casino are visited by tens of thousands of players each day from the rest of the world. It’s not only the new player welcome bonuses that attract people to these but the amazing variety of games they have to offer.

The 7 Sultans, for example, has more than 750 titles in its library, out of which over 130 can also be played on smartphones, through the 7 Sultans Mobile. This year, a new game will be added to this amazing collection of mobile slots, one that has the potential to swipe all awards and become the most-played mobile slot of the year. The game is called Castle Builder II and is set to be presented to the world at the ICE Totally Gaming 2017.

About the builder

Although you might have never heard of Rabcat, you surely encountered its work (if you play video games, that is). The Austrian company has contributed with its game art services to well-known titles like Farming Simulator, Forza Horizon 2, Kinect Star Wars, and last year’s hit team-based multiplayer online FPS, Overwatch. Their name – or their work – might seem more familiar to slot machine fans: they are responsible for several hit slots titles, like Castle Builder, Dragon’s Myth, Forsaken Kingdom, and many others. This year, Rabcat will release its sequel to its successful Castle Builder slot machine. Its title doesn’t change much – the game is simply called Castle Builder II – but the game behind it will forever change how slots fans look at their favorite game.

Spin, win, build

Castle Builder II is not a mere slot machine. The game incorporates elements like progression, experience points, and achievements, making it much more similar to a social game than to an online casino title. Players will get to choose their own Builders – Sam and Mandy at first, with more characters to unlock later – and make use of each one’s special perks to gather funds and materials to finish their castles. They will have to explore several Kingdoms, each with a number of castles to build, find the right match for each one’s Princess (or Prince), and pocket the bonus earned with a job well done.

Castle Builder II makes its players forget that they are playing a slot machine. Whenever higher-paying symbols, like crowns and rings, land on the reels, players feel disappointed because they are not getting building materials, “only” money. The game is almost as addictive as Candy Crush – you’ll find yourself glued to your phone’s screen once you get the hang of it.
