Review of Dungeon Quest Slot by NoLimit City

NoLimit City’s new Dungeon Quest lauded as RPG Slot.

NoLimit City's new Dungeon Quest lauded as RPG Slot – Not even close!I’ve always been an avid gamer. Growing up, I played video games. My whole family, dating back to my grandfather’s purchase of the original Atari (and several models thereafter) have been video gamers. We love them—always have, always will. My personal favorite has always been RPGs—role playing games—the ones that immerse you in a deep story that goes on for hundreds of hours of game play.

Now, as an adult, I still play video games in my spare time. But, as many of you know, I’m also an avid player of online slot machines. Needless to say, when I heard today that Swedish games developer NoLimit City was releasing an RPG-style online slot machine, I got very excited!

The creator’s dramatic promotional video for the new Dungeon Quest Slot boasts:

Enter the dungeon… Four heroes… In a quest for epic loot”

Again, very exciting! I couldn’t wait to try it out. Now bear in mind, I was not expecting the game to be full-on RPG. That just doesn’t meld with slot mechanics. But at the least, I was hoping for detailed characters, a conceivable backstory, and some features that play into the RPG theme. Sad to say, the new Dungeon Quest online slot comes nowhere close to that.

Review of Dungeon Quest Slot

Okay, here’s a quick rundown of the game and features. Dungeon Quest has a 5×7 reel grid with 29 paylines. Its symbols are all colorful Ore and Gems. There are four colors of Ore, and the same for color of Gems. The gems are refined ore, embedded in nice gold encasement. Obviously, the Ore are the low-paying symbols, and Gems the high-paying variety.

The 29 paylines are more unique than most. They pay for adjacent matching symbols, left to right, or right to left, but the symbols do not have to start at the far left or right. Three adjacent matching symbols on reels 2-3-4 will also payout their respective prize.

As for features, there are two that can be triggered at random, plus a scatter-activated free spins bonus (so they say).

Power Stone: The Power Stone is a random feature that can trigger after any spin. When it does, a massive black stone falls somewhere on the reels, covering a 2×2 space. All of those spaces become wild. Additionally, all occurrences of one low-paying symbol will also turn wild.

Gem Forge: Another random feature, Gem Forge can activate before a spin. When it does, one color ore is chosen. Each occurrence of that ore turns into the higher-paying Gem of that same color.

Alchemy Spins: The black orb is the scatter in Dungeon Quest. They can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. When 3 appear in a single spin, it triggers the game’s Alchemy Spins, in which players receive 4 free spins. For each spin, one color symbol will automatically turn into all wilds. Those wilds will hold in place for the remainder of the free spins, with the potential to cover the entire board in wilds and unleash the ‘epic loot’ extolled in the promotional material.

The Real Deal – Not an RPG Slot!

Wanting to know what this game was really about before I put any money in it, I logged into LeoVegas and pulled up the new Dungeon Quest Slot, choosing to play in demo mode. I’m sure glad I did, because in just 100 spins, at the default $0.60 per spin, I lost 60 fake dollars (see image above).

About 25-30% of the spins were actually winners, and only 5 of those won more than the $0.60 wager per spin. The highest was $2 and change, when I struck the Power Stone feature. Aside from lack of pays, I was even more disappointed in the lack of creativity.

Where is the RPG functionality here? Where’s the plot? They are non-existent. The characters, although thoughtfully rendered, are nothing more than a side decoration. And, to be fair, I did go back (just now) and run the game, in practice mode of course, for 500 more spins. I still didn’t trigger any free spins.

In my honest opinion, the new Dungeon Quest Slot is nothing but a disappointment all around. It is not what NoLimit Product Owner, Per Lindheimer, described. It does not mimic “old school roll-playing games”. It’s hardly an “adventure game”. It is, in no way shape or form, an RPG slot machine.
