The design in some of Big Time Gaming’s MegaWays slot games can be a bit hit and miss but the sound and visuals in Queen of Riches are rather nicely done. The setting is the interior of an ancient royal palace. The gold reels are guarded by 2 statues of the jackal god Anubis.
The number of symbols that appear on each reel changes with each spin. They can reach up to 7 symbols high. Land 7 symbols on all 6 reels and you’ll be playing with 117,649 ways to win. On the reels you’ll find A to 9 royal values plus a trio of Egyptian hieroglyphs. The best paying symbol is the pyramid. Land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 of these in combination and you’ll receive a payout of 1, 2.5, 5, 15 or 30 times your stake.
The Egyptian queen of the title is the game’s wild. Whenever the wild hits on reels 2 through 6, it fills the whole of the reel and counts as 7 symbols. The wild also comes with a multiplier attached. Each individual full reel wild can deliver a boost of up to 7x. Better still is if you land more than 1 full reel wild on the same spin as the multipliers are combined. For example, a pair of full reel wilds with 7x multipliers would send any payouts rocketing by 49x.
The main extra in Queen of Riches is the Reel Clone feature. This can strike at random on any spin and produce between 2 and 6 identical reels. What you’ll really be hoping to see here are cloned full reel wilds, complete with their magical multipliers. Manage that and some big rewards are possible.
Big Time Gaming has kept things simple here. The respins and free spins found in other MegaWays slot games aren’t on offer in Queen of Riches. There’s still enough going on courtesy of the cloned reels and the full reel wilds with multipliers to keep things interesting though.
This is another enjoyable MegaWays slot game. The shape shifting game engine isn’t to all tastes but if you’re a fan, you should enjoy this audience with the Queen of Riches. You should try The Final Countdown (from Big Time Gaming) which uses the Reel Clone feature as offers much more features wise.
