The story of The Lost Princess Anastasia is an interesting one, pervaded by conspiracy theories, the one more extravagant than the next. Born to Russian parents Tsar Nicholas II, last Imperial Tsar of Russia, and his wife Tsarina Alexandra Fyodorovna, the Grand Duchess Anastasia is said to have been murdered along with her entire family by members of the secret police service, on July 17, in the year 1918.
The fact that Anastasia’s body wasn’t found in the years after her death has enshrouded the event in theories, both believable as well as far-fetched. The most popular of these is that Anastasia was in fact still alive. Despite the fact that in 1991 a mass grave was proven to be the grave of the family, many still hold on to the belief that Anastasia was never murdered. The story remains one of mystery, captivating the imaginations of many the world over.
The theme has proven to be a highly popular one as far as the world of online gaming is concerned, with online slots being no exception.

Themed Slot Symbols
The symbols are designed to really blend in nicely with the overall theme. Playing card symbols numbers 9 and 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace appear alongside the themed symbols. These make up the lower value paying symbols, and appear quite frequently on the reels, in winning combinations.
The themed symbols include Rasputin, the Tsar himself, Anastasia and the Russian royal crown. Winnings are paid out for anything from 3 of a kind, to 5 of a kind, on an active payline. Anastasia pays out at a royal x1500 times the initial bet, for a combination of 5 in a row.
The game features a wild symbol – able to replace all standard symbols. The wild will transform into any symbol but the scatter symbol. Depicted by a cube of ice, the wild symbol also offers a payout in itself – worth an x2000 bet multiplier for 5 on an active payline.
The royal crown is the scatter symbol, and landing 3 or more in a scattered fashion on the reels will trigger the Free Spins Bonus Game. Scatter symbols are not required to appear on any one active payline, but may appear anywhere on the 5 reels, as long as there are 3 or more during one round.
The Lost Princess Anastasia Free Spins Bonus Game
The Free Spins Bonus Game will be activated as soon as 3 or more royal crown scatters appear on the reels. 5 Free Spins are awarded, with the added bonus of some of the symbols turning into wild symbols at random, after each free spin.
This ups the winning potential considerably.
