Riviera Riches is a 5 reels with 15 paylines game from Microgaming where the rewards are certainly high if you are lucky enough to line up a winning sequence of this slot’s ornate game symbols. You don’t necessarily need be a millionaire to play, because the betting starts from as little as 0.01 per spin. But if you do want to flash the cash, then you can do so with a high maximum stake of 150.00.
The reels are adorned in a golden gild frame while many of the symbols elicit splendour and riches. Starting from the least rewarding symbols, there is a snifter of brandy accompanied by a smoking cigar and casino chips, a vintage automobile and a grand hotel. There are also two character symbols – a beautiful woman wearing a fur shawl and a dapper chap in a tuxedo. Line up 5 of these gentlemen and your bets on that line will be multiplied by 750.
There is also the Riviera Riches icon, 5 of which will multiply line bets by 1,500. This is also a wild symbol which will replace other game icons to fill in winning sequences while also doubling the win amount. The only symbols that this symbol does not substitute for are the scatter symbols, one depicted by a nice big pile of cash and the other by a bonus roulette icon.
The cash pile scatter symbol will pay out even when it doesn’t appear on a pay line. Five will actually multiply the total stake amount by 40. That means a maximum bet will return a potential of 6,000 credits. This symbol will also reward players with some free spins if 3 or more appear on the reels. When this happens, 12 free games will be initiated with all prizes will be subjected to a 3x multiplier.
The Roulette Bonus game can be triggered at any time during the normal base game and the free spins round. To activate the game, players simply have to land the roulette bonus icons on both the first and fifth reel. This will take the player to a roulette table where they will be able to take 2 spins of the wheel.
Place your bets by selecting one of the 36 numbers on the roulette felt. This will also place bets on the corresponding outcomes of the selected number. So, if you place your bet on number 2, your stake will also be spread over the 1st dozen, 1 – 18, Evens, Black and the 2nd column. Your total wager will be shown next to the “Bet” field, and this is simply a multiplication of every different factor involved. For example, if you choose to bet the maximum of 15 pay lines with 20 coins worth 0.50, the full amount placed will equate to 150.00. You can even place as little as 0.01 per spin if you want to limit your losses.
