Imperial Riches™ is the latest Netent slot to target the attractive Asian market. It is composed of five lavish jackpots and features that include the Avalanche, wilds, Free Falls and the Lucky Pond Bonus Game.
Chinese Water Garden
Imperial Riches™ is set in a beautiful and calming Chinese water garden and uses traditional symbols. The background is decorated with red lanterns and a lotus covered pond.
The high-paying lucky fortune symbols are made up of a gold koi, sycee, coins and bamboo shoots. The low-paying symbols are made up royal flush A, K and Q.
In addition to the traditional symbols, you’ll also hear a customary Chinese tune. The slot is played on five reels and fifteen paylines.
Imperial Riches™ Avalanche Feature
Imperial Riches™ uses Netent Avalanche mechanics where symbols fall into position rather than spin. Winning symbols light up and explode, leaving vacuum spaces which stimulate a further avalanche of symbols that fill spaces for the chance to win again.
The feature can continue indefinitely provided that you are continually creating new wins.
Imperial Riches™ Golden Gong Wilds
Wilds are illustrated by golden gong symbols which can appear on the second, third and fourth reels. They replace the other symbols to help complete paylines but do not substitute for scatters.
Free Falls & The Lucky Pond Bonus
A Chinese lantern is a scatter which will trigger the 10 Free Falls feature in sets of three. Each subsequent scatter will add five free Falls up to a maximum of 40 Free Falls (nine scatters).
All winning symbols in the Free Falls are tallied as jewels that are used in the Lucky Pond bonus game. That’s because each precious stone is dropped down into a koi pond where they may be eaten by either the Coin Fish or Bonus Fish.
The Coin Fish will award 5, 10 or 15 coins for every jewel swallowed. The jackpot game is triggered when the Bonus Fish has ingested three gems. It consists of three progressive jackpots: Mega, Major and Midi and two fixed jackpots: Mini and Rapid.
Thirst for Asian Themes
The Imperial Riches™ slot has a higher RTP of 96.88% with low volatility which is perfect for someone looking to have some relaxed playing time. Bets can be varied with coin values of 0.10 up to 2.00.
Imperial Riches™ was created using HTML5 coding and as a result is optimised for play on mobile devices and desktop computers, so you can carry it with you using an Android or iOS device.
The payline wins are hard to get overly excited about with a top payout of 1,500x coin value or 100x total bet which is why you’ll be wishing to trigger one of the three progressive jackpots.
The slot seems more intent on keeping you entertained and dazzling you with some stunning artwork and music than wowing you with big wins. Still, it may be of particular interest to fans with a thirst for Asian-themed slots.
