Riverbelle Riches Slots

Riverbelle-RichesRiverbelle Riches is probably the only slot machine that is themed around a riverboat, a ship that was often used as a river based casino, though just as often they were perfectly innocent ships used for transportation on America’s big rivers. Microgaming made sure that this was a game with a unique theme, but the same can’t be said about the design, which is partially based on the symbols that were used in older 3 reel slots.

While the theme is somewhat unusual, everything else about this game is quite common. There are 3 reels, 1 paylines, wild symbols and multipliers, while the jackpot is $8,000.

Features of Riverbelle Riches

Wilds are often used in classic slot machines these days, but multipliers are a bit more rare. You will find both in this game, and they are offered through the same symbol.

The symbol in question is an image of the Riverbelle Logo, which is supposedly representing the ship. Used as a wild feature, it often manages to be of help, though it has to land on the payline and the rest of the symbols need to meet certain conditions before you get something out of it.

When one wild symbol is part of the payline, the other two symbols need to be two matching regular icons. The wild takes the same role as them, plus it puts a 2x multiplier on the win, so you just won twice as much.

When two wilds are on the line, the combo forms based on whatever third regular symbol also shows up together with them. A 4x multiplier is applied in that case.

There is a third situation where the wild can be of help, when all the positions of the line are taken over by wilds. In that case, you get a prize, the biggest one offered by the slot. You can take home up to 1,600 coins.

Betting options and jackpots

This is one of those classic slots which require 1 or 2 coins when the wagers are placed. These coins have a range between $0.25 and $5, so the top wager is $10.

1,600 coins are mentioned on the paytable, in the column where you find how much you can win with a 2 coin wager. The maximum value of those coins is $8,000.

Design and symbols

The riverboat theme is a good idea, but I don’t feel like it’s well enough handled in this case. The background picture is made out of wood, with the logo being the only one that includes an image of the ship. Unfortunately, the symbols are mostly classics, with only the wild being different and using a logo to represent it.

Symbols: Riverbelle Logo (wild, 1,600 coins), Orange 7 (160 coins), Three Bar (80 coins), Two Bar (50 coins), One Bar (20 coins) and Cherries (20 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’ve enjoyed the unique theme, the combination of wilds and 4x multipliers, with all the other elements being the same as in other 3 reel slots.

Riverbelle Riches can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
