Downton Abbey Slot
Donwton Abbey Slot
- Based on the popular British period drama
- A huge range of bonuses based on the characters of the show
- Features include free games, Wilds and progressives
Downton Abbey slot is based on the hugely popular British drama of the same name. Downton Abbey follows the upper-class Crawley family and their servants on their large estate, including real-life events that occurred during the same time period including the sinking of The Titanic and the First World War. The show, although now ended, was a big hit even beyond the UK, so it’s easy to see why Aristocrat have decided to use it as the basis for this slot. They’ve included a tonne of features all centred around the show and its characters, so there are plenty of interesting ways to win some money.
The rules for this game are fairly straightforward and standard, with the objective of getting a winning combination using the base symbols from left to right to win credits or a bonus feature. The difference, however, is that this slot features 2 sets of reels, a noble set featuring the upper-class Crawley family, and the servants set featuring, of course, the servants. Betting 40 credits will permit play only on the servants game at 1x multiplier. If you increase to 200 credits, you can play both games at 1x multiplier, 200 credits for 2x multiplier, 300 for 3x multiplier and 500 credits for 5x multiplier. The nobles game features a 5×4 layout with 40 pay lines, while the servant game has a 5×3 layout with 25 pay lines. The base symbols for the noble set of reels are listed here, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Various upper-class items
- Sybil Crawley
- Edith Crawley
- Tom Branson
- Mary Crawley
- Cora Crawley
- Robert Crawley
While the base symbols for the servant set are listed here
- An assortment of old utilities
- Thomas Barrow
- Daisy Mason
- John Bates
- Mrs Hughes
- Mr Carson
Both sets of reels also feature a Wild symbol, which substitutes for all of the above symbols as well as providing the highest credit award in a winning combination.
A bonus symbol can also appear in reels 1, 3 and 5 of each game, and when it occurs on the same reel on both games, it becomes a Pink Wild, substituting for all symbols. If only the servants game is active, the Bonus symbol activates the bonus only for that reel. When both games are played, the bonus occuring on a reel in either game activates the bonus for that reel. Activating 3 of these will trigger the Bell Bonus.

Downton Abbey Slot Bonuses and Features
Bell Bonus. Awards a single pick of 10 bells to reveal one of the following features:
- Patmore’s Kitchen
- Free Games
- Christmas Bonus
- Wheels Wealth
- Wheel Bonus (only available when both reels are active)
Growing Reels Bonus. On any wagered spin, Growing Reels Bonus may activate, apart from when Mega Symbols Bonus or Mr Carsons Bonus is triggered. All reels in both games will then extend to 8 symbols high, with 100 lines played on each game and up to 3 reels will be covered in Wild.
Mega Symbols Bonus. This can also be triggered on any wagered spin, except when Growing Reels Bonus or Mr Carson’s Bonus is active. The characters from each game, as well as the Wild symbol, can expand into Mega symbols, which span 3 or 4 wide and 3 high in the servants game, or 4 high in the nobles game.
Mr Caron’s Bonus. Can be triggered on any wagered spin apart from when Growing Reels Bonus or Mega Symbols Bonus is active. You must pick 1 of 5 items, which can reveal a Wild or 40-500 credits if playing the servants game only, with 3 to 7 Wilds randomly placed if Downton Abbey is revealed. If playing both games, however, then a Wild or two Jackpots can be revealed, or credits ranging from 100 to 1000. If Jackpot is revealed, then the corresponding progressive will be awarded, with an increase in wager making the likelihood of this happening greater.
There’s a great deal going on in this slot, and the rules are very extensive, becoming even more complicated by the way they change depending on which set of reels you are playing. While I’m definitely a fan of a game with a good range of bonuses, Downton Abbey slot is probably overdoing it and certainly takes time to understand what’s going on. That being said, having so many ways to win money definitely makes the game more interesting and less monotonous, and fans of the show will certainly enjoy it as it brings a lot from the TV series to the game. If you’re looking for something a bit different with plenty of features, Downton Abbey slot could be for you.
