Roo Riches Slot Review

The rugged Australian outback is the setting for Roo Riches, a 5 reel, 10 payline slot game from iSoftBet. The highlight here is the free spins round which plays out on a new set of reels that feature blanks and special chip symbols with coin values attached. You could also randomly land a Cash Chip Spin which where all the chip values are awarded. Pay to trigger the Lightning Bet Mode where only cash chips are active. You could then also land a set of streak respins. Play here from between 10p and £10 per spin.

Head to the Outback

There’s nothing overly flashy about the design in Roo Riches. Set against a dusty outback backdrop you’ll see A to J royals alongside an eagle, a fox and a crocodile. The kangaroo is the top standard symbol. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these in a line for a payout of 0.5, 5, 20 or 200 times your total stake.

Up to 15 free spins

The Uluru-style rocky outcrop is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll receive 7, 10 or 15 free spins in the Free Spins feature. These take place on a new machine that’s made up of blanks and special chip symbols that come with coin values attached. Each time a chip lands, the associated coin value is awarded.

Cash Chip Spin

The Cash Chip Spin feature can trigger at random in the base game. All the coin values attached to the chips will be cashed in for a special bonus prize. The values can reach up to 100 x your stake.

Lightning Bet Mode

Increase your stakes to 20 times your stake to activate Lightning Bet Mode. This plays out on the free spin reels which are made up solely of blanks and chips with coin values attached. Each time a chip lands it also activates its position. When all 15 reel positions are activated, you’ll be awarded 3 Lightning respins.

This is a streak respins round. You’ll start with 3 spins. If a new chip symbol lands, it locks in place and the respins reset to 3. When you’re out of spins, all the coin values are added together for your final award.

Simple Aussie action

Like most Aussies we’ve met, Roo Riches is a pretty plain-speaking slot. The design is simply done and the features revolve around the chip extras. The streak respins can have their moments if you activate the Lightning Bet. We found it all a bit hit and miss. It’s not something we’ll be rushing to play again but Roo Riches delivers simple, Aussie action.

The most you can win is 1,500 times your stake from the cash chips and 2,000 times your stake from filling the reels with the high value kangaroo symbol. If you want a slice of Aussie action, Redroo by Lightning Box Games is a better alternative.
