This game is a beautifully designed and visually pleasing wonder, based on the Spanish book, The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha. Playtech based this slot game on a work of literature and The Riches of Don Quixote provides an altogether compelling story alongside its obvious slot game attraction.
You’ll set to work spinning the reels in the middle of a field, backed by spinning windmills and huge blades of grass. The reels themselves are filled with supposed characters from the book, as well as other thematic icons, such as helmets, shields and the novel itself.
A standard five reel, three row layout is offered up for The Riches of Don Quixote, while 25 non-customisable paylines are also incorporated. Your line bet can be altered between R0.01 and R125.00, therefore allowing all players to place a maximum overall wager of R3,125.00 per spin, which does seem a bit crazy. A turbo button is also included for those not interested in watching the reels spin as long, while autoplay allows up to 99 consecutive spins to be set in motion.
The close up image of a windmill acts as the game’s wild symbol, and this will substitute for any other on the reels to make a winning combination, excluding any scatters.
Speaking of which, the scatter symbol is represented by the book of Don Quixote. Three or more of these will provide 10 freespins of the reels as well as a multiplier of your total wager.
The La Mancha freespins, awarded by spinning three or more scatters, sees an increasing win multiplier included. This starts on times two and increases by one with every two freespins. A frozen wild symbol is locked in place in the centre of the middle reel, providing further opportunities at creating winning combinations.
Six of the game’s symbols are also stacked on the reels for extra win potential.
The Riches of Don Quixote is one of Playtech’s more graphically pleasing products. It provides great payouts, intriguing extras and a very fitting soundtrack. Any literature fans should definitely check it out and revel in how marvellous it is.
