River of Riches™ Slot Game Review
New from Rabcat comes a legendary adventure down the River of Riches video slot game. This five reel slot game comes with 3 rows and can have up to 25 rewarding paylines. The simple yet elegant design is reminiscent of the Egyptian-theme it is trying to convey and works very well with the overall look and feel of the game.
The high value symbols include the Sphinx, a scarab, a golden Ankh cross, and a pyramid. Being a classical theme slot the low values are of course represented by the high card face values. Thus, the A, K, Q, J, and 10 match the style by being etched in a hard rock-like surface, just like the Egyptians used to do with their valued ciphers.
The visuals are hands down amazing to look at. Although simplistic in design, the game boasts incredibly fun animations. Fire bursts happen every time you do a spin, and the flaming Wild logo is simply awesome. The layout is also very straightforward:
- You have a way of choosing how many paylines you want to play with the Lines button
- The Bet button is right next to it and you can put down a max of 2.00
- A tiny Autoplay button is there in case you choose this method
- The big Spin button is certainly the most important and for this reason it is placed in the center
- You have the option to Gable if you get to this stage, and
- Hitting the Max Bet button will same you the trouble of repeatedly clicking the Bet up button
The Bonuses are really what make this game whole and more than worth your while. The Free Spins is one of the most rewarding when matching 3 or more Orb Scatter symbols. Ten Free Spins are instantly awarded, but even if you can’t hit 3, you will still get awarded some credits for 1 or 2 Orbs. This is when the heat starts rising up and a gleaming fire-fall determined how many Wild symbols will be stuck on the screen for the duration of the bonus round. More symbols lead to more chances of winning and players can retrigger this round.
The Gamble feature is a mini-game within the game. Simply choose the suit and you have the opportunity to double or even quadruple your winnings. Five shots is all you get so make them count. With regularly triggered Free Spins comes the chance of stacking up your wins. Be patient, learn the game and spin those ancient reels!
