River of Riches slot is one of the beautiful games which Rabcat offers, and you can find it at Microgaming casinos. The slot’s theme appears to get its inspiration from adventurers that are looking into the treasures that Ancient Egyptians have left behind. It’s far from an original title, but the graphics are slightly better than in the majority of the games which are inspired by pharaohs and pyramids. Still, the symbols are the ones you’d expect, with scarabs, Indiana Jones like characters, an Ankh, a pharaoh and so on. The slot has scatters, regular and fixed wilds, plus free spins. It allows you to bet on 25 lines, and you can win $25,000 from it.
Betting and Prizes
It’s not a cheap game to play, not if you want to max out your wager. That line bet might use only one coin, but its value can be anywhere between $0.01 and $20, so you can expect maximum bets of $500 when all the lines are covered.
The big reward comes from the scatter symbol, which can pay you $25,000. The next best prize is at $20,000, so that’s a decent alternative as well.
River of Riches Slot Features
Free spins and cash prizes are awarded to the player that gets two or more scatter symbols on the River of Riches slot’s reels. These icons have a red circle which seems to be placed at the top of a stave of some kind. The payouts vary between $1,000 and $25,000, when you have between two and five such symbols.
Triggering the 10 free spins is done with at least three scatters, and for the duration of this feature you can expect 1 to 4 wilds to be in fixed positions on the reels, helping out every step of the way. You get one fixed wild on the 2nd reel, while the other three are optional, and they can appear on the 4th reel. They’re sticky wilds, so they stay there until the end.
The wild is the only other icon used here, and its image is the one with the Adventurer, a man that wears a hat, just like Indiana Jones would. Wilds don’t substitute for scatters and they don’t have prizes to award directly.
Theme & Design
Though it’s such a common theme, based on Ancient Egypt, the game manages to surprise with the design. Even the presence of the poker cards is not a huge problem, since they are somewhat themed and look good on their own. The rest of the images give you a pyramid, the scarab, the Ankh cross, the pharaoh, the adventurer and a scatter.
The game’s graphics and features seem to suggest that it’s worth playing, but I’m not very satisfied with the jackpot, which is the equivalent of 50x the bet value.
