The wombat says: You don’t need to be royalty to make a king’s ransom in Rising Royals slot – thanks to Microgaming (you know those people behind the Treasures of Lion City slot) and Just for The Win.
Set in the 17th Century, we are transported into the heart of the French court of Louis XIV where you’ll find more lace and coy smiles than a night out down my local boozer.
Let’s spin and see if we can’t get our mitts on some crown jewels…
Look and Feel
Rising Royals slot is one of those games that’s all about the laughs – which means there’s a whole load of dodgy massive wigs on the reels.
Your game play is set in the famed Palace of Versailles, and with around 700 rooms it should just about be the right size for a royal slot…
Meanwhile, the transparent reels give a picture-perfect view of the palace while flowers and chandeliers bedeck the reels. Such extravagance could only be fit for King!
Feeling like a royal winner? Then game on over 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines. That´s half the number of the Witch Doctor Goes Wild slot which should give you a clue to the volatility of this game: Medium. If you want something in between, we’d go for a game like the Serengeti Kings slot which has 26. So there you go.
The gold and purple game logo is the highest value icon in Rising Royals slot, and 5x of these on a pay-line will award you a pay out of 15 x your bet. Nice!
Louis XIV (complete with a cheesy grin, a giant hat and a head of ringleted curls), tops the pay-table next – he was the king after all. Land 5x of his Majestys on a pay-line give you a 7.5 x your bet prize.
He’s followed by the infamous beauty and cake-eating Queen Marie Antoinette, plus another cheeky faced long-haired fellow. The gild-edged J, Q, K and A playing cards provide the fancy-pants lower value icons in this regal romp.
There are no scatter symbols in the game – which means (controversially) there is no Free Spins bonus.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Symbol Lock Respin
Wombat fans, land a winning combo made up of any reel icons that aren’t the 3 royals and prepare for the Symbol Lock Re-Spin feature. What this means is that all the winning icons lock in place, while the remaining icons re-spin once to give you another chance to win.
Better still, the sticky symbols and re-spins will just keep on coming until you stop generating wins! Which is very kind indeed.
Surprising that this royal pair lost their heads, given their generosity…
Those of you with eyes sharper than this furry critter’s will have noticed the upgrade metre to the side of the reels. So what’s this all about?
Each time you land a Symbol Lock Re-spin you’ll automatically earn a point on the metre where it is logged. When you’ve collected enough points, and the metre is full, the next Locked icons that freeze are collectively upgraded. This tasty little level up can significantly boost the size and value of your wins.
Sticky symbols, re-spins AND symbols upgrades? Just For The Win are really spoiling us. Rising Royals slot has plenty of bawdy charm and bonuses to be proud of – and we didn’t miss the Free Spins at all. Give it a go!
Wombat Score: 4.5 out of 5
By George it´s good.
