Like many slot games with this theme, red and gold dominate the visuals. On the reels you’ll see lower value royal symbols as well as Ming vases, bottles of perfume, hats, bowls and a smiling, bearded man. The best of the standard symbols is the silver coin which pays 12.5 times your total stake if you land 5 on the same payline.
That same amount is on offer from the wild which replaces all other symbols apart from the dragon scatter. Reel Riches Fortune Age comes with 2 bonus features.
First up is the Wheel Bonus feature - above the reels you’ll see 5 jackpot amounts. You’ll have a chance of winning these when a coloured coin lands. You’ll then spin the wheel associated with coloured coin. For example, if you land the red coin you’ll spin the Mega Jackpot wheel where the top individual prize is 1,250 times your stake.
You’ll then spin the wheel. Each segment has a cash value or jackpot attached. The number of coins from the triggering spin determines how many segment prizes are awarded. 1 coin for example and you’ll win the prize from a single segment. If you triggered the round with a stack of 4 coins, then you’ll win the prizes from 4 adjacent segments. You can also win upgrades that take you to the next level wheel.
The second offering, the Free Spins Bonus feature is triggered in the usual manner by landing 3 or more scatters on the same spin. A prize of 2, 5 or 50 times your total stake is awarded. You’ll then be taken to a new screen and offered a selection of money wallets. Pick until you find 3 containing the same gemstone and you’ll win the associated free spin and multiplier prize shown at the side of the reels.
On offer are 5, 8, 10, 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier or 20 free spins with a 3x boost. Find the +1 symbol and the multiplier increases by 1. The +3 adds another 3 free spins to your total. You can also retrigger the feature giving you a potential 46 free spins with a quadrupling multiplier.
Reel Riches Fortune Age is a simple game. The best chances of landing a decent winner come from the bonus features. We found them pretty tricky to land though and a mixed bag as a far as payouts when we did hit them. We’d put the variance in the medium to high range.
This isn’t the flashiest trip to China we’ve taken. The features, on the rare occasions that we landed them, aren’t bad though. If you enjoy the Asian-theme then Reel Riches Fortune Age is one to consider. I would recommend you play other WMS games like The Cheshire Cat or Lady of Egypt.
