Graphics and Visuals
Queen of Riches is set against an Egyptian-themed background with Anubis on either side of the reel strips together with decorative artwork and hieroglyphs, while a suspenseful oriental soundtrack accompanies the reel noises. Typical symbols from Egyptian mythology feature prominently on the intricately designed reel set.
As commonly seen, the lower end of the pay table consists of the standard card royals from 9 through to A. At the high level are Egyptian god symbols – Eye of Horus, Ra jewels and scarabs. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 0.5x to 6x your bet. A pyramid is the top symbol with a six of a kind awarding you 30x the stake. The queen is the wild symbol, appearing in full reel height that can carry up to an x7 multiplier. There are no scatter symbols on the slot.
Queen of Riches Game Features
While the slot does not have a free spins feature, nor bonus game, it comes with two extras that can lead to huge mega wins. While the first is a win multiplier, the second will clone up to six reels.
- Full Reel Wilds: Any queen wild symbol landing on the reels will appear in full reel height and will also carry a win mutliplier from x1 to x7. More than one wild reel can appear, which will be multiplied against each other. For example, an x4 wild reel and an x2 wild reel would act as an x8 times win multiplier. However, it will be applied only if the wild is part of the winning combo.
- Reel Clone Feature: The feature can randomly trigger on any spin. Two to six reels will be linked and will spin together to reveal the same pay smbols. Full reel wilds can also be cloned but only from reel two to six. Each will carry a randomly assigned multiplier from x1 to x7.
Queen of Riches followed just months after the Megaways engine made its debut on Dragon Born in February 2016. Now, years later it feels like the first slots with the engine were a trial period for Big Time Gaming to gauge how players will react. It led then to their most successful release in December 2016 called Bonanza, which became one of the most played slots in online gaming. As a result Queen of Riches faded somewhat into the distance but remained to this day a well-liked slot that can produce mega wins on any spin.
