Play Romanov Riches Mobile Slot Free
The mighty Romanov family ruled Russia with an iron fist. The royal family lasted for generations, leading the massive empire through prosperity and horror. Of course, the horrors of the First World War proved to be too much to bear, and the royal family met a gruesome fate, executed by the communists which seized the country after a violent revolution.
But while the Romanovs may be gone, their wealth is rumoured to still be hidden away someplace – and in this Microgaming slot, it’s up to you to find it and hoard it all for yourself. The title has Mystery symbols, re-spins, and bonus wheels. Symbols include playing card icons like 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as four different coloured gemstones.
Microgaming is a company based on the Isle of Man, and has partnered with many studios world wide to create stellar video slots for people’s enjoyment. The studio was among the first to adopt online gambling, developing the first true online casino software in 1994, and yet, they really began to pick up steam in 2002, with the release of their Viper software that made things simple and easy for both casinos and customers.
Seeing where the wind was blowing, the developer also invested into mobile gambling, releasing their first mobile casino software in 2004. Serious gamblers know of Microgaming accolades – in 2009, with a $6,374,434 progressive jackpot win, the company broke the record for largest online casino payout in the history of all time, although it would be eclipsed in the years to come by other games and developers. Microgaming’s latest innovative ventures deal with VR Roulette using Oculus Rift headsets, though how far they take things remains to be seen.
How to Play it
The game is played on a 5×3 playing field with 15 fixed paylines. The user interface is well done, we have to admit. Mobile players won’t have much to complain about, as it’s a rather standard experience on phones, with most of the information hidden away in the numerous menus. Gamblers can bet between $0.20 up to $100 per spin by adjusting their coin size and coin levels, giving both casual gamblers and high rollers a wager to comfortably play at. One thing that did stand out is the absence of an Autoplay feature. This seems to only be happening in Microgaming’s titles, and we’re not sure why, as it’s not even in –all- of them, just some.
If you wanted something gorgeous to look at, we’re sorry to say that Romanov Riches probably isn’t it. The symbols by themselves looks gorgeous, but the backdrop is a boring, royal purple cloth with some jewellery scattered in the background. Not bad, by any means, but we know for a fact Microgaming can pull off much better graphics than these.
Pick Your Bonus and Play Romanov Riches Slot On Your Mobile:
Each reel has a stack of mystery symbols, which can be replaced by a single symbol. During normal gameplay, there’s a chance said icon will turn the two leftmost mystery symbols into that exact same symbol, which increases your odds of landing a win. On top of that, matching two to four full symbol stacks on the reels can reward re-spins. Said stacks have to start from reel one and all be adjacent to each other. The re-spin gives the reel a chance of matching the previous two – if that happens, another re-spin is paid. If not, the cash prize is awarded and the feature ends.
On top of that, gamblers have access to the 3 Wheel Bonus bonuses, which are triggered when full stacks of Bonus symbols land on the first reels. Getting three, four or five stacked bonus symbols grants one, two or three bonus wheels, respectively. The first two wheels give cash prizes, while the third rewards a multiplier.
The largest fixed jackpot you can win in Romanov Riches is worth 1000x the wager through the 3 Wheel Bonus. The title has a medium volatility, and an RTP of 96.08%, which is above average for video slots.
While it sounds great on paper, the whole thing doesn’t quite pan out when you put it all together. The visuals are decent, but not great. The gameplay can feel sluggish at times, and the features, while lucrative, feel boring to play with.
