Has there ever been a more iconic duo than ancient Egypt and videoslots? The answer is probably yes, but that does not stop this theme from being super popular to this day.

Not that we mind – we’re suckers for a good Egypt-based game. Set in a richly decorated temple, your goal is to appease the exotic pharaoh ruling over this ancient land. Succeed, and you may find yourself richly rewarded for your troubles!

Queen of Riches Review

The slot was released in 2016, and gives players the ability to travel back in time to the era of pharaohs and gods. Big Time Gaming’s comes equipped with the Megaways system – where all six reels come with variable heights. They can have as little as two, or as many as seven symbols stuffed in a single reel! To land a win, collect three or more identical icons in adjacent positions from left to right.

It’s not as feature packed as some other games by the same developer, but it is still quite enjoyable. Lucky online gamblers will be able to make use of full reel Wilds, that have a chance of appearing with a 7x multiplier! Furthermore, on each spin, between two to six reels will be cloned, revealing identical symbols on every reel. That also means full reel Wilds with multiplier could be cloned!

Theme & Symbols

As we already mentioned, we love slots based in ancient Egypt, and Queen of Riches is not exception. The music, the background image, and the icons all serve to further immerse us into a long gone world.

We cannot help but wish the background image was a little more detailed. It still looks good, with the pair of statues on each side of the reels. When you land a win, you see these beams of light illuminate everything, making it look even better! Still, a few more things could have turned Big Time Gaming’s release from acceptable to amazing.

Symbols look promising at first, but fail to impress. There are some neat ones, like the pyramid and the gemstones shaped like Egyptian icons. However, the playing card royals really ruin the mood, since the artists didn’t even bother to make them seem Egyptian.

How to Play Queen of Riches

Queen of Riches is played on six reels, with each one sporting a different height thanks to the Megaways system. This naturally increases the game’s volatility. After all, one spin could have an abysmal combination, while the next one might reveal the full 117649 ways to win!

The gameplay will feel quite familiar to anyone who played Megaways before. Unlike in White Rabbit, the core system has not been changed much. You have six reels, and the ability to land some fantastic wins under the right circumstances. However, if you plan on doing so, you should prepare for a long grind, thanks to the slot’s high variance.

Still, it is quite worth it once you are able to trigger the special features. They are incredibly difficult to hit, but with good reason. Several full reel Wilds can transform even the most boring win into a huge jackpot if you get lucky! Add the fact you get cloned reels on each spin, and you realize the awesome winning potential of Queen of Riches.

Big Time Gaming’s release has a minimum bet of 0.20, which is fantastic value for low and mid-range players. Despite such a small prize, you can land some incredibly powerful wins thanks to the high variance and the Megaways system. However, high rollers will not be pleased with 10.00 as the highest bet.

Bonus Features

The nature of high volatility games is their reliance on special features. While this slot only has two, it is quite important to keep track of them if you plan on winning.

  • Full Reel Wilds
  • A fully expanded Wild counts as seven symbols in height and can replace any other icon. They can only appear on reels two, three, four, five and six. Each full reel Wild has a chance to appear with a multiplier, that can range between 2x to 7x. When multiple full reel Wilds are present, their multipliers multiply each other.

  • Reel Clone Bonus
  • Two or more reels are selected as clones. They will reveal identical placement of symbols if they are highlighted together. It is possible, with some really good luck, to get all six reels to display the same icons! Furthermore, if you have some otherworldly luck, you could also clone full reel Wilds! However, the multiplier is randomly assigned for each Wild.

Queen of Riches Payouts

To say that Queen of Riches has a high volatility would be to say that the Sahara desert is warm. Which is to say, a major understatement! The steep variance may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it does have its advantages. Mainly, with a fantastic jackpot just waiting to be claimed!

The luckiest gamblers will be able to walk away from this Big Time Gaming release with 120,000 coins! This is paired with an impressive RTP of 96.9%. This is well above the current industry average.

The whole time we were playing this game, we couldn’t shake the feeling we played it before. This leads to a fundamental problem with Big Time Gaming’s Megaways slots. We love them, but they always fall back on the same bonuses and gameplay mechanics.

The Positives

  • Visually impressive – the symbols and background image both look great, especially when illuminated.
  • At 96.9%, the RTP is far ahead of the industry average. Great news, especially for a high variance game.
  • The theoretical maximum multiplier you could get in Queen of Riches is 16,807x your total stake. A win, no matter how small, paired with a multiplier that massive, will give a satisfying jackpot.

The Negatives

  • The high variance has its upsides, but it can also be tedious for normal gameplay. It can be boring to grind for big wins, and we do not blame you if you choose to skip on it.

While we enjoyed the slot, there was really nothing new to it. The winning potential and high RTP alone make it worth playing, in our eyes. But if high volatility is not your cup of tea, then you should find another game.
