Garden of Riches Slot from Novomatic
Garden of Riches is a slot all about the romance between a princess and a prince. The beautiful blonde princess is the principal character on the reels, acting as both the wild and the scatter symbol. The princess also offers the highest payouts of the entire game, which includes a very impressive progressive jackpot.
The dark haired prince joins her on the reels, along with a golden tiara, an emerald ring and a golden rose adding the romantic aspect to the gameplay. As well as the jackpot payout you’ll also find a free spins bonus round where the number of wilds will grow and grow.
How to Win on Garden of Riches
Garden of the Riches slot game has 9 win lines across the 5 reels – and each of these pays out when you land three or more consecutive symbols from left to right. You’ll also receive a small payout when either the princess or the princess hits two in a row.
The highest standard win of 2,000 coins comes when you can hit five princess symbols in a row. This symbol is also the wild one, so will substitute for any other on the reels, making many more wins possible. The prince has a top prize of 800 coins, while each of the tiara, the ring and the rose pays out a top prize of 600 coins. The symbols are completed by the playing cards A and K which pay out 400 coins and 10, J and Q which each have a maximum prize of 200 coins.
Every time you land a win you’ll have the ‘gamble’ option open to you. This is an opportunity to double-up based on predicting the color of a playing card.
Garden of Riches Jackpot and Free Spins Features
The first notable feature of this game is the jackpot payout. You’ll notice that symbols can appear stacked on the reels, meaning you will find entire reels filled with the same symbol on occasion. This can lead to wins coming in clusters, where a number of the 9 win lines all pay out wins with the same symbol. The jackpot win will be yours if you can manage to land the princess symbol stacked on all of the five reels, filling the entire slot with her beautiful image. This is a big ask, but the large six figure coin payout certainly makes it worth striving for.
The second feature is the free spins bonus. The princess acts as a scatter symbol and you’ll win 10 free games if she makes an appearance three or more times across any of the reels in any position. These 10 free spins are much more profitable than in the base game. The three or more scatter symbols will remain in place as wilds throughout the entire feature, while any additional princess symbols that land on the reels will also stay in place. This makes for a feature which becomes more profitable as it continues, where you’ll find a large number of wilds filling the reels by the time spin number 10 comes around. Of course, this feature also gives you a much greater opportunity of landing the jackpot payout, as you are given a large helping hand in filling the reels with the princess symbols.
Regal Design and Setup
You certainly can’t miss the title of the slot, this sitting proudly above the reels in glowing gold ornate lettering, while the jackpot prize amount is displayed just to the right. The backdrop to the game shows a deep red flowery pattern which suggests regality, while the reels themselves are backed in black. The colorful symbols provide a nice contrast to this black, with the princess and the prince being the two symbols that particularly stand out, each of these offering a small amount of animation when they are involved in a win. The accompanying regal soundtrack does a great job of adding to the slightly historical atmosphere of the game.
With just 9 win lines across the five reels, you’ll get more spins for your money than at other similar games where you’ll normally find a greater number of win lines. You’ll simply choose the coin value and then multiply it by the number of lines to set your total stake. Like all Novomatic games, you’ll also find a very straightforward auto play option.
Garden of Riches is one of many slots where the entertainment value really steps up when the features come into play. Having a jackpot feature always adds some interest, as you’ll always know you’re potentially only one spin away from a big win. The free spins feature promises to grow in excitement as those wilds fill the reels, while giving you even more opportunity of hitting the jackpot win. The combination of these features makes for a game that you’ll surely play again and again.
