The wombat says: Now then, we all have a weakness, and this Wombat’s is those slots that take their theme from the exotic world of ancient Egypt.
Well, we do like a car them as well (try the Mega Money Rush game for something a bit different on that front), but pyramids, cats and funny beards do float our boat.
NetEnt’s Rameses Riches slot is a game that will transport us to those heady days of beautiful Cleopatra, quirky hieroglyphics and some of the best dressing-up costumes known to mankind! In fact we were more than stoked to be taking to the reels sporting a full Pharaoh’s headdress to see if we could stir the favour of the gods and rake in some hard cash.
Will we uncover some ancient riches in Ramesses Riches slot? Or suffer at the hands of the Pharaoh’s curse instead? Grab your lucky scarab Wombat Fans and let’s give it a whirl.
Look and Feel
So what does Rameses Riches slot have in store for its players? Here we are in a world of reasonable graphics (not quite the standard of the Ho Ho Tower slot, but not bad) but with slightly disappointing sound effects given the theme of the game. There is the odd phase of Egyptian piping and a few electronic sounds, but these aren’t a distraction from game play.
Your reels are set against the blue sky of a desert landscape with a couple of palm trees framing the reels on either side and of course an omnipresent pyramid in the background.
Rameses Riches is a 3 row, 5 reel and 20 paylines slot game which puts it close to the Supe it Up slot with its 5 reels and 25 pay-lines.
Your symbols on the reels play are made up of those items familiar to Egypt lovers. A beautiful lady with traditionally heavily-made up eyes and plaited hair, the powerful symbol of the Cat God Bastet, an ancient scroll of parchment, and the eye of Ra – which is a protective symbol of life. Meanwhile your lower value icons are represented by the usual the 9, 10, j, Q, K & A playing cards.
The Wild is a pretty perky looking Pharaoh in his colourful regalia – this substitutes for all icons except the Scatter. Rameses Riches Scatter is the Ankh, a cross with a looped top, the symbol of life in this ancient place.
This is a game which is well designed and pretty straight forward, it isn’t a bells and whistles affair but it is simply good game play.
Ramesses Riches Free Spins
To set off the Bonus you’ll need to land 3x or more of the Ankh Scatter symbols – manage this and 12 Free Spins will be yours. If you’ve really got those playful gods on your side, then you might even land 4x and get a head-spinning 16 free spins. And for those of you who’ve done a deal withe the devil, landing 5 xof these lucky symbols will get you a whopping 20 free spins! Well that’s worth building a pyramid for.
But that’s not all! This is a game that keeps on giving with all wins in this feature awarding the player with a x3 multiplier! Plus this Free Spins can be also re-triggered.
This is one of those sweet games that offers its faithful chums the chance to make more money from their winnings with an awesome Gamble option. After any win, you can decide to stake it all on the turn of a card, choosing whether you want to guess its colour or suite, and so double or quadruple your money respectively.
Overall this Ramesses Riches slot makes a good addition to the Egyptian genre. It could look and sound better but it’s a solid game with some generous free spins and with a surprisingly lucrative little multiplier. Why not take a spin on this game and take a journey back in time?
