There was once a venerable old casino which gave birth to a new casino. But the new casino had no felt-covered tables, no antique paintings on the walls, no wardrobe and no vintage whiskey bar. Who would play at such a nasty casino though?

But the new casino grew bigger. It got a queen and then a king. More and more people started playing at the casino and they actually thought it was beautiful.

And then one day the casino itself gave birth to its very own game: The Ugly Duckling.

This is how the story of the Royal Casino could have been if it had been told in a fairy tale. They started out as a small side project for the casino in Aarhus, almost 5 years after the competitors from Tivoli, Danske Spil and Spilnu had opened their online casinos and firmly established themselves on the market, and just before LeoVegas arrived with a marketing budget 5 times as large.

But through their focus on bringing interesting games to Denmark and with constant promotions for their players, Royal Casino has slowly grown into one of Danes’ favorite online casinos.

With such a history, it is perhaps not surprising that they have chosen H. C. Andersen’s fairy tale about the ugly duckling as the theme for their biggest launch to date.

The Ugly Duckling – an adventurous slot machine

The Ugly Duckling - an adventurous slot machine

Den Grimme Ælling is one of the biggest game releases of the year, not only in Denmark, but internationally.

Behind the game stands Europe’s largest game developer, Novomatic/Greentube, which is best known for the slot machine Book of Ra. For 2 years, Royal Casino has collaborated with the gaming giant to have the adventure put on virtual shelves.

As a player, you yourself help to tell the adventure through 5 chapters, which you move through by collecting diamond hearts in the game. When you’ve collected enough, flip to the next chapter, where the winnings get bigger and bigger (increased volatility) until you have the opportunity to win 50,000 times the stake in the Swan feature in the fifth chapter.

Here are the cold facts:

  • 5 reels, 4 rows, 40 paylines
  • Highest win: 50,000x the bet
  • Features: Wilds, Scatters
  • Features: Snap-Drop, Swan function
  • RTP: 95.01%
  • Volatility: Medium, growing to high and very high in the later chapters
  • Developer: Novomatic/Greentube

The slot machine can be played exclusively at the Royal Casino in Denmark from 26 October 2022, and will be launched in November in the rest of the world under the name The Ugly Duckling.
