Downton Abbey Slot Game Review

Arguably one of the most popular British period Dramas in history (and once of the most viewed), Downton Abbey is deserving of a well-made Video Slot, and Aristocrat Gaming Technologies have risen to the challenge, and delivered – and more!

Due to the popularity of the game, it’s quickly become a player-favourite, and it’s clear Downton Abbey is popular, even years after its initial release!

In fact, a recent quote from Sam Wollaston of The Guardian said;

“It's beautifully made—handsome, artfully crafted and acted. Smith, who plays the formidable and disdainful Dowager Countess, has a lovely way of delivering words, always spaced to perfection. This is going to be a treat if you like a lavish period drama of a Sunday evening.”

The publication of all this positive acclaim helped Aristocrat Gaming Technologies decide it was the right time to make a Video Slot that fitted, and here it is!

Game Features

Downton Abbey offers a bonus round that’s triggered by landing three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere in view across the reels.

Once you trigger the bonus-round, you’ll be taken to Mrs Patmore’s Kitchen – a key character in the TV show – and you are given 10 spins to begin with. (You can re-trigger more free-spins simply by landing three or more scatter symbols once again anywhere in view on the reels).

During the free-spins round, you’ll notice expanded wild reels become commonplace, and if you’re lucky enough to land 2 or more of these on a singular spin, you’re in with a great chance of a big win.

This becomes even more relevant if you can manage to land them on reels 1 and 2, 1 and 3, or 2 and 3, as this guarantees wins, and takes matching just ONE symbol on the 4th or 5th reels to make lucrative 4-of-a-kind and 5-of-a-kind pay lines!

Now one of the interesting things about the bonus-round in the Downton Abbey Video Slot, is that’s it’s not quick, by any means. In fact, the pace of the bonus round takes some players back a little; it’s quite slow, designed to cater to players who enjoy the game, and who like to see real-life clips of the TV show, instead of on-screen graphics.

This obviously caters to older players – particularly those who are fans of the show itself – but don’t let that fool you into thinking this game is only for the “oldies” – nope, it’s got a ton of entertainment inside, and is well-worth checking out if you get the chance to do so!

Pros: Fun and exciting, Downton Abbey combines a classic TV show with a great gaming experience.

Cons: If you’re not a fan of Downton Abbey, it’s unlikely you’ll like the Video Slot.
