Imperial Riches slot game is brought to players by NetEnt and follows a theme that will remind players of Japan.
Clearly inspired by the oriental theme, the game’s background is based on a picturesque Japanese background and will certainly provide players with a relaxing environment. Indeed, whilst we conducted our Imperial Riches game review, we were as relaxed as possible and managed to enjoy the game with plenty of good feelings!
With spins from as little as $0.15 available, players are able to enjoy the gameplay experience that is provided by this NetEnt title. Indeed, although the maximum bet might be rather low compared to many of their titles – with $30 the max bet – there is still plenty of opportunity to strike rich!
The game consists of a playing grid of five reels and three rows and has 15 fixed paylines in which players can try and form winning combinations of three or more matching symbols.
Bettors are able to test the Imperial Riches Free Play version on our page before betting with real money, however those big wins will be missed! Players who have experience of playing a NetEnt slot game will know what to expect from the game panel available across the bottom of the screen. Those that do not, though, can expect to find the ‘Autoplay’ and the ‘Max Bet’ buttons available either side of the ‘Spin’ button.
The paytable of Imperial Riches provides players with seven different icons in which winning combinations can be formed. The royal playing card symbols – the blue Q, the green K and the red A – each provide the lowest payouts, whereas the bamboo plant, the golden coins and the golden ingots all pay a little better. The most rewarding symbol, though, is the golden koi fish as five of these on a winning payline will provide players with rewards of 1,500x their bet.
There are some top Imperial Riches bonus features that appear in this slot game, including the Avalanche feature. For players not used to NetEnt titles, this is essentially a cascading reels feature. This means winning combinations will disappear and will make room for new icons to appear on the same spin, potentially providing players with multiple wins on each spin that is made.
The red lanterns are a rather important icon in the game as these are the slot game’s Scatter. If three or more of these appear on the reels, then the Free Spins feature will be activated. Three of these symbols will provide a reward of 10 free spins, whilst four and five Scatters will hand out 15 and 20 free spins respectively. In addition, during this feature, any wins formed will be turned into jewels which will then be used in a bonus game.
The Lucky Pond Bonus game is triggered after these free spins and will provide players with the opportunity to earn further rewards. The jewels collected will now be eaten up by either a Coin Fish or a Bonus Fish, with both rewarding players differently.
The Coin Fish will provide players with a reward of up to 15x the bet, whereas the Bonus Fish will see the Jackpot game activated.
There are five different jackpots available, with three featuring a progressive rewards whereas the other two have fixed payouts. If a Coin Fish eats the jewels, players can earn up to 40x their bet, whereas the Bonus Fish will see one of the jackpots won. Three of the jewels, though, will need to be eaten by the Bonus Fish.
RTP (return to player)
