Realtime Gaming's Realm of Riches Video Slot Review

January 13, 2013

Most online slots that have a medium volatility suffer from low payouts without many chances for big jackpots. The Realm of Riches video slot by Realtime Gaming is a medium-volatility slot that does not have this problem. There are multiple ways that players can win sizable jackpots in this game, and it gets its relatively low variance from the way the normal payout table is structured to give players frequent small and medium prizes. Overall, Realm of Riches is a great video slot for people who want a chance to win plump jackpots without sitting through as many long and boring downswings.

Realm of Riches uses the five-reel layout with 20 paylines. Even though there are 20 paylines available in this game, you don't have to bet on all of them at once. Coin sizes can be set from $0.01 to $5.00 each, and this gives the game a betting range of $0.01 to $100 per spin since you can only bet up to one coin on each of the available paylines.

The wild symbol in this game is the crown symbol. As is the standard, five of the crown symbol on an active payline will get you the biggest regular jackpot in the game. In Realm of Riches, this is a 10,000x line bet payout. You can also get a 2,500x line bet payout for getting five of the queen symbol, a 2,000x line bet payout for four of the crown symbol and a 1,000x line bet payout for five of the knight symbol. On top of these regular payouts, there is also a linked progressive jackpot that Realm of Riches is a part of. This progressive jackpot starts with a seed value of $1,000, and it increases as people play it until there is a winner.

The shield scatter symbol is probably the most important symbol in the game if you're looking for medium to high payouts. The scatter payouts themselves give players a lot of value, but getting three or more of them on the screen at the same time will get you between 10 and 25 free spins. If you only pick up two of the scatter symbol, then you get a respin for a chance to pick up more. What's awesome about the free spins is that the crown wild symbols become expanding wilds that cover the entire reel, so one wild symbol instantly becomes three.
