The Wombat says: Love the glitz and glamour of a real life casino? Or simply fancy a sojourn next to the Mediterranean sea? Then grab your tux Wombat fans – cos we’re off to Monte Carlo in Riviera Star slot from Fantasma Games and Microgaming. This could be straight out of the That´s Rich slot play book, except that´s from Play´n GO.
Enter the fancy casino and you’ll meet a bunch of gamblers who are about to pull off the biggest casino heist in history! This could even be a case for that guys from the Cash Noire slot, but that´s a whole other story.
But don’t worry, you’ll be able to get your hands in some on some bona fide loot, too – in the shape of an increasing multiplier feature and 10 Bonus Spins.
Look and Feel
Your graphics are a bunch of fun cartoon illustrations and the reels are set inside Monaco’s posh Casino de Monte Carlo. Did you know this legendary place has featured in 3 James Bond movies? Neither did we. This wombat loves the sounds of the casino – and Fantasma games have got it just right with the echoes of tossing chips and slots beeping away in the background.
Riveria Star slot has 5 reel 3 rows and 20 pay-lines. That´s half as many as the Anderthals slot from Just for the Win which should give you a clue as to how this game plays. We´d put it down as medium volatility.
Your symbols in the reels include a burning cigar (who knew you could still smoke in casinos??), a bottle of champers, a big old wedge of cash, a bling bling gold ring with a dollar sign on it, a very expensive-looking watch (a Rolex most likely), plus the 4 heist members – 2 ladies and 2 guys- a ginger bloke with a beard, an Italian in sunglasses guy, a lady donning a Panama hat, and a mysterious woman in the headscarf. She looks like she drives a convertible.
Your Wild symbol is the icon that says ‘Wild’ on it, and will do the job of all Wilds to help you form winning combinations. Lastly, the black and gold casino chip acts as a Scatter symbol. Keep your eyes peeled for these blighters!
This cool game comes with a nifty little re-spin feature that’s activated whenever you make a winning combo on the reels. Your winning combination will remain sticky in its place and you’ll be given another spin for free! These re-spins will keep on coming as long as more symbols end up with wins. Don´t you just love Monte Carlo!
Free Spins and Bonuses
Superstar Feature The Superstar Feature is triggered at random and will add a golden star icon onto reels two to four that acts as a sticky wild. It also boasts an increasing win multiplier Wombat fans! Starting at x1, for every standard Wild Symbol that lands during this bonus feature, the multiplier will increase by x1 – and best of all, there’s no limit to high this can go!
It’s multiplier mayhem I tell you…
Free Spins Land 3x of the chip Scatter symbols and you’ll scoop 10 Free Spins with the Superstar feature activated. However, in this round, the gold star icon acts like a walking Wild – it appear will land at the start of the Free Spins round and remains on the reels til it ends -moving to a new position after each spin. This means more mega wins!
The multiplier is still in action, too, and you can re-trigger the feature by landing another 3 Scatter Symbols.
Rivera Star slot is a nice little game – with a fun backstory, nice graphics and some solid bonuses. Fans of low variance slots will be right at home in this casino, as the base game wins are frequent thanks to the Superstar feature. It’s a ‘thumbs up’ from us.
