The Sand Princess can change your luck with one spin & award a fortune!
Enter the realm of the fictional Sand Princess, who resides in a rather beautiful and ornate golden city, surrounded by the desert. This is not a slot based on real historical characters, but instead it is one that is entirely imagined by the team that created this slot.
From her realm one can only presume at the power of the attractive Sand Princess who while holding her sceptre can control her legions of followers. Follow her commands and you could end up a model citizen and acolyte but try to escape from her desert fortress with a pile of her cash and valuables and your fate is down to the whims of the spins.
So how does the new Sand Princess slot shape up? Let's take a closer look at what the game has to offer right now.

The presentation of the Sand Princess slot is very nicely done. The backdrop of the slot is a beautiful desert fortess city, fortified by walls both as protection against invaders and also the relentless sand. The Sand Princess herself is a very attractive and heavily bejewelled young lady who carries a sceptre, which may be decorative or which may offer some form of magical power.
A dusty sky fills the horizon and the reels are at the forefront of this vista and there are a total of five reels in play, each with three symbols on. There are 30 pay lines in total and these are not selectable which means that the minimum spend per spin is $0.30 but you can really ramp up the spin cost to a huge $3,000 per spin, meaning that even the mega high rollers will have something to entertain themselves with on this slot.
The sound is also very nicely done and helps convey the right atmosphere for the slot without being too in your face or obliterating what is happening on the reels. All in all, 2 by 2 Gaming have done a good job in presenting this slot.

What is on the reels?
There are the usual set of standard symbols on the reels in the Sand Princess slot. The lower value options are the playing card symbols, the Jack, Queen, King and Ace. I must admit, I was a tad disappointed to see playing card symbols used in a slot about a desert queen as they don't really fit in with the theme and there were plenty of other symbols that could have been used instead.
The symbols that are higher in value do fit in nicely with the theme of the slot though and there are a number of different options. A treasure chest, a bottle of some form of potion, an eagle, a white horse, a panoramic vista of the desert palace and lastly the highest paying symbol is the Arabian prince, who offers you the 500 coin jackpot on a single line.
There are two more symbols on the reels, the Wild and Scatter and these both are looked at in more detail in the two sections below.
The Sand Princess symbol is the Wild in the game and she also offers you a chance to win the 500 coin jackpot for landing five across the pay lines on a spin. Of course, as a Wild she can also substitute for the standard symbols on the reels to help create one or more winning lines on a spin.
The Sand Princess Wild is also stacked and when you turn the middle reel fully Wild using this feature you trigger the Sand Princess bonus and you receive an extra bonus of either 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier, added Wilds to the reel, a Wild Reel (in addition to the third reel) or a randomly selected Royal Reward which is an instant cash win.
Free Spins features
There's no doubt that the main bonus of the Sand Princess slot is the Free Spins bonus and you trigger this bonus by landing three of the scatter symbols on the second, third and fourth reels on a single spin. When you do this, you earn yourself 10 free spins and you can then select one of four bonuses to use alongside your free spins.
These bonuses are:
- Multiplier Free Spins - You automatically get a 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier applied randomly to your wins on each of your 10 Free Spins
- Wild Reel Free Spins - In this bonus, if you manage to land a stack of Wild symbols on the third reel turning it completely Wild, then another Reel will also turn completely Wild on that spin offering you the chance of a bigger value win.
- Random Wild Free Spins - On this spin a number of extra Wilds are added to the result of the spin giving you a chance of a better value win.
- All Features Free Spins - With this option, one of the three features above is selected at random on each Free Spin and is used on that spin alone. Then on the next spin another benefit is randomly selected.
The only down side with the Free Spins bonus is that you cannot re-trigger the Free Spins bonus game from within the round.
Best feature of the Sand Princess slot
There's lots of nice touches with the Sand Princess slot including a very enjoyable base game that has enough action to keep you interested in what is going on with the slots on each spin. The bonuses however are the thing that makes Sand Princess so enjoyable to play and it is the Free Spins bonus round that is the icing on the cake for me. Although Free Spins cannot re-trigger, the fact that you can pick from three bonuses, or have the bonuses applied randomly to your spins is a nice little touch and gives you a much better chance at some of the bigger value wins in the game.
Sand Princess is a fun and enjoyable slot from 2 by 2 Gaming that ticks all the right boxes and which is playable in many of the Microgaming-powered casinos. The bonus features are what gives the slot real playability and it is here that the better value wins can be found, although the base game is still fun and enjoyable to play too.
