Rising Royals Slots - Microgaming
ABOUT RISING ROYALS SLOTS
In November 2019, Microgaming and Just For The Win launched an online slot titled Rising Royals. The game takes us back to the 18th century in France, into the era of abundance and aristocracy. The reels are surrounded by jewel-adorned pillars and luscious rose bushes, while a majestic palace serves as the backdrop, done with exceptional visuals.
The Palace withholds hidden treasures so put on your dancing shoes and prepare to waltz the night away while taking advantage of the Symbol Upgrade Bonus and the Symbol Lock Respin feature. Unfortunately, the luxurious theme and design aren’t supported with lavish payouts that amount to merely 300x your bet. The RTP is caped at a standard 96.01%.
HOW TO PLAY
A 5-reel, 3-row setup offers 20 paylines on which punters can wager from $0.10 and $250 on every spin. Enter the bet Menu in order to configure your bet size, click on the Spin button and wait for matching symbols to land on adjacent payline positions from left to right to award payouts. If you prefer to lean back and relax, enable Autoplay to make the reels spin without interruption.
The game’s top-paying icon is the Rising Royals logo issuing 15x your stake if 5 appear on a payline. High-win symbols include three members of the aristocratic society which award between 3.5x and 7.5x the bet for 5 of a kind. Low-value icons are represented by playing card symbols Jack through Ace delivering 3x the wager each when 5 identical ones make it to the grid.
Though there is the Respin Round during which symbols can be upgraded, the prizes aren’t as lucrative as one would wish. The lack of Wild, Scatter and the Free Spins game additionally makes this game unenticing. We would definitely have preferred if there were more opportunities to score wins both during main game and the bonus.
Symbol Lock Respin Feature
Whenever a win containing high-value symbols is formed, they will be locked in place and a Respin will be awarded. What’s more, all matching icons that are not part of the win will also stay on the grid to enhance chances for new prizes. Additional Respins take place if more symbols of the same type land or if more win combos appear. The feature ends if there are no more Respins or if the entire layout is filled with locked symbols.
With every winning combination, the Symbol Upgrade Meter grows and once it is full, all locked symbols will upgrade to the next, more valuable icon and the meter will reset to zero. Only the highest-paying icon can’t be upgraded.
RISING ROYALS ON MOBILE
Despite the game’s extravagant design and the feel of opulence it emanates, the gameplay doesn’t offer a rewarding or exciting gameplay. Rising Royals don’t seem to rise up to the challenge; base game prizes don’t exceed 15x the bet, while payouts during the Symbol Lock Respin feature go as high as 300x your wager.
Should you decide to give this straightforward game a try, play it on desktop from the comfort of your home or choose to take a shot at it on tablet or mobile while you are on the move.
