A good treasure-hunting adventure story always goes down well. The 80’s gave us Indiana Jones, and the 90’s gave us tomb raiding Lara Croft. The new millennium tried to give us Nicholas Cage in a Disney romp about secret codes and national treasures, but we were having none of that.
Move forward a few years, and software developer Microgaming has come to the rescue by offering us a new hero in River of Riches. Creators of the ever-popular Tomb Raider and other slots that feature other somewhat less sexy adventurers, these guys really know what they are doing when it comes to explosive, action packed entertainment.
River of Riches is an online video slot that will take you deep into the dark, windswept tombs of Egypt, where the myths of ancient gods, strange magic and fabulous treasures still live in the shadows.
Reflected in themed reel symbols and other graphics and animations, these legendary beings and the golden hoard they guard make for a game packed with the sort of action and adventure that Indy and Lara do so well. The fact that this game doesn’t rely on a big brand name but is still impressively popular already is proof of its prowess and pulling power.
In the game you’ll find a solar disc borne by cow horns, Tutankhamen’s gold mask, a scarab beetle, an ankh, a winged goddess, and pyramids. In addition to high and low value symbols that combine on active paylines to bring wins, the reels also feature a wild symbol that substitutes for other symbols, and a scatter symbol that can bring wins from anywhere on the reels. The scatter symbol also lets the River of Riches flow. This free spins round could see as many as four fixed wilds appear and stay on the reels to bring a huge number of wins.
Not content with all this, the developers have also included a Gamble Feature, which could see you double or even quadruple your wins.
If you want to try taking your fill from the River of Riches, you can do so at River Belle and if you want to check out what other adventure themed online video slots are on offer, this casino also features a number of favourites, including Tomb Raider of course!
