Imperial Riches — A New Addition to NetEnt’s Portfolio

A certain trend is currently underway in NetEnt’s team, as they focused on creating a lot of Chinese-themed slots, and its latest is no exception. If you like Chinese tradition and culture, and you enjoy things that both traditional and modern China offers, Imperial Riches is a perfect opportunity to get lost in a Chinese garden and win valuable prizes along the way.

The symbols on the reels of Imperial Riches are somewhat standard symbols that you can find in Chinese-themed slots. These are various objects from their traditional culture, as well as some low-paying symbols such as J, Q, K, and A. The slot has five reels and three rows and includes the so-called Avalanche concept, which is the trademark feature for some of the NetEnt slots.

All you have to do to trigger Avalanche is to make a bet and spin the reels. If you manage to have a winning bet, the feature will activate and all the symbols on the reels that are a part of the winning combo will light up. The only symbol that will not light up is the Scatter.

All the symbols that are lit will disappear and make room for new ones to fall into the reels. If you are lucky, there will be an opportunity to create new combos, meaning that you will get better prizes in the end.

Scatters also play a very important role in this slot. If you get at least three of them on the reels, you will activate the so-called Free Falls feature. Once activated, you will have an opportunity to collect jewels in a pond dubbed Lucky Pond. Players who manage to make “Bonus Fish” eat three or more of these precious stones will activate the jackpot.

Lots of Jackpots

Speaking of jackpots, Imperial Riches is a game that has plenty of them. In fact, there are a total of three progressive jackpots as well as two fixed ones. It’s pretty exciting to play the game as every new spin is an opportunity to take a shot and try to win some of those jackpots.

What really makes this game visually beautiful is the attention to detail that the team at NetEnt has. They paid attention to every single thing in this game, and it’s simply stunning.

The grid is located in the middle of a Chinese garden, on top of a magical pond. The garden is decorated in the traditional style, and it seems as if it has come to life due to impeccable animations.

Another thing that makes this slot special is its music. It’s a traditional type of Chinese music, with a slow and mellow rhythm and mesmerizing melody. All in all, it perfectly blends with the slot, creating an overall relaxed atmosphere.

Bryan Upton, Director of Games at NetEnt, stated in the official press release for this game that it is packed with features. Moreover, he added that Imperial Riches, along with the Avalanche mechanic, continued Jackpot successes of the company.

Upton also said that the three-stage nested bonuses provide players with an opportunity to take their shot at the Free Falls game and collect precious stones that could bring them another coin win feature or even a Jackpot bonus game.

Finally, he concluded that the game has five “realistically priced jackpots” and beautiful Asian artwork that made the game “speak the promise of fortune.”

To sum up, if you like China and its beautiful and vibrant culture, you should definitely check out this slot and all the cool features that it brings to the table.
