Both the symbolism and the background are all about pharaohs and historical Egyptian culture. This is already underlined by the sacred black cats positioned to the left and right of the reels, which are based on the Egyptian deity Bastet. In addition to classic symbols from the world of cards (K for King, Q for Queen, and J for Jack), the symbolism itself also uses various Egyptian characters. Even the name doesn’t come about by chance. The eponymous “Queen of Riches” is Cleopatra herself, who has to hand over her riches to you if she wins.
HOW TO PLAY QUEEN OF RICHES
Two special features, the “Linked Reels Feature” and the “Megaways Feature,” determine the gameplay; you will learn more about this in the next section. The slot machine is recognizable due to its continuously changing reels. The number of reels, namely 6 reels, remains consistently the same, but the number of symbols varies. This even goes so far that a reel could only contain a single symbol, with a maximum of six symbols possible. As a result, Queen of Riches gains its very own incomparable dynamics, the result of which is the enormously high number of paylines. Of course, your goal remains unchanged. You’ll need to match a lot of the same symbols within the paylines in order to maximize your potential winnings.
A very special feature is called “Linked Reels.” This selects two to six of the displayed reels next to each other and flashes gradually if at least two reels are affected by the feature. The reels that flash get the same symbols in the same positions. However, the wild feature, Cleopatra, cannot be affected by the Linked Reels future, as the symbol never lands on the first reel. At most, this allows you to land five Wild symbols on the respective reels, provided that the Linked Reels feature actually extends from the second to the sixth reel. Alternatively, the Linked Reels feature is also referred to as a “reel clone.”
Megaways, meanwhile, is the feature responsible for the random number of symbols on the reels. This means that “Megaways” is also “owed” to the fact that you get up to 117,649 paylines, which are significantly influenced by the number of symbols on a reel.
THE ODDS OF WINNING
The official RTP of the Queen of Riches is 96.90%. The difference to 100% is the margin that Big Time Gaming or the casino book as a profit. The maximum win, measured against the maximum possible bet (10 dollars), is around 200,000 dollars. At least you get a win factor of 0.05x your stake. However, there is no progressive jackpot, nor is there a ladder of risk. Bonus or free spins are waived in favor of the numerous paylines. As always, your win will be significantly influenced by the symbols you land on the reels and the respective paylines. In the following, we would like to give you an overview of these.
