The wombat says: The Romanovs were the impossibly rich Russian royal family of Tsars and Tsaresses who ruled for 300 years until they got murdered and overthrown by Bolshevists.
Based on the legendary riches of this dynasty, the Romanov Riches slot from Microgaming is a bit more jolly (thankfully). This design house has been coming up with the goods lately with some excellent games like the Reel Talent slot, so owe had high hopes for this Russian venture!
Simply land matching gems to scoop big wins without a single execution in sight! Let’s get spinning…
Look and Feel
Opulence is the name of the game here and your reels spin inside an ornate frame set on a backdrop of pearls, diamonds and other bits of fancy pants bling. All very flash! The Romanovs would be proud. The graphics themselves though aren’t quite so high class – but they do the job. If you want really lush visuals, we’d go for something like the Valkyrie slot from Elk Studios, but stick around the Romanovs for game play!
Romanov Riches slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 15 pay-lines – so coming in under games like the Jurassic Juniors slot for example which will give you an idea as to its volatility: medium.
Bets start at a minimum of £0.20 and go up to a whopping maximum bet of £100 per spin!
Riches are exactly what you’ll find on the reels in this slot. There are gems galore in blue, red, green and purple as well as the standard A, K Q, J and 10 playing card symbols making up your lower value symbols.
The Wild symbol in this game is the snowflake and it will do the usual job of replacing any other symbol on the reels to make up extra winning combos.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
From time to time (well, every few spins), 2x or more matching stacks of supersized symbols (or mystery stacks) will land on reels 1 and 2 – these will help you trigger off the re-spins. Cheers Microgaming!
Romanov Riches Re-Spins
Sadly there are no free spins round in Romanov Riches but there are Re-spins, which makes up for it! To set it off these, symbol stacks must land on reels 2 and 4 at the same time. Stacks will lock in place while the remaining reels re-spin to try and add another matching stack to the reels.
This process repeats itself until all of the reels show the same symbol, or a reel doesn’t match at all on a re-spin. Land all 5x reels with the same symbol and you’ll scoop 750x your bet. EEK!
The last feature in Romanov Riches is the most lucrative. Land at least 3x full stacks of Bonus Symbols (starting from reel 1) and you’ll set it off.
Get 3x, 4x or 5x Bonus Symbol stacks will trigger wheel 1, wheel 2 and Wheel 3, respectively. The first and second spins will pay out a cash prize and the third wheel will give you a multiplier to add to what you’ve picked up! There’s the potential to scoop 1000x your bet – which is a hefty sum even for the Romanovs!
While the game may look a little bit simple, appearances can be deceiving and there are some decent payouts on offer – especially if you manage to hit the Wheel Bonus. Romanov Riches slot is all about the stacks Wombat fans and it’s a nice game mechanic that makes a change from the usual play. Thumbs up!
