Imperial Riches Slot Review

Imperial Riches

About Imperial Riches:

Perhaps, you sometimes play NetEnts classic space-themed slot Cosmic Fortune. The slot is dead, “its jackpot contributes will be moved to Imperial Riches slot.” Imperial Riches is an appealing name for a slot.

It is a Chinese-themed slot from NetEnt with 5 jackpots, 3 which is progressive! To find out more about the slot and our thoughts about it read our full review.

About the symbols:

Imperial Riches is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with 15 pay lines. The games use the Avalanche mechanics, the same function as in the famous Gonzo’s Quest. Falling symbols will form winning combinations, winning fields will explode and get replaced by new symbols. This means that a single spin can
last for a while and form consecutive wins.

The game field is placed on a pond with lotus flowers in a Chinese garden.
Symbols are designed to fit the Chinese theme.

The lower valued symbols are (A, K and Q). High-paying symbols are bamboo-symbol, coins, and some typical Chinese symbols (see picture).

There are also Gong Wilds. These can’t replace any scatters, but the Wilds can substitute for any regular symbols.

The Scatter symbol is a Chinese lantern. If three scatter symbols fall on the game field, anywhere you will trigger 10 free falls. If you receive 4 scatter symbols, you will get an extra 5 free falls. The maximum amount of Scatter symbols that can be won is 9 = 40 Free Falls. (This is really great, it adds excitement to the game when it’s possible to win more than 10 freefalls.)


During the free falls, you will get cash and collect jewels. At the end of the free falls feature, you’ll be taken to the Lucky Bonus Pond. In this pond, there will be two fishes. One fish that collects coins for every jewel it swallows. There is also a second Bonus Fish, that eat up to 3 jewels. If it eats 3 jewels, you enter the jackpot game.

In the Jackpot game, there are 5 koi fishes, one fish for each jackpot. There are five different jackpots, (Mini: set at 100), (Rapid: set at 500), (Midi (progressive), (Mega (progressive) and Major (progressive)

“Jewels are falling into the pond and the first fish to eat three jewels will pay out the jackpot belonging to that fish.”

RELEASED: September 4, 2019

We tested the game and unusually we received the scatter bonus really fast by collecting 3 scatter symbols. We got the scatter bonus several times in a short period of time to our big surprise.

Even if it’s nice with freefalls you can’t compare them to the freefalls you get in Gonzos Quest. The freefalls in Imperial Riches doesn’t have that nice feeling but, it is still exciting because it is possible to win a jackpot.

The jackpot feature (Lucky Pond Bonus feature ), when you enter a little pond is odd and good. The Jackpot game is also great, it’s both unique and entertaining.

The Chinese sound is okay, it is soft and calm. The gameplay is good but could have been better. The best with the game is the beautiful graphics and the jackpot feature. It is not one of our favorite games or one of the better games from NetEnt though. We give it a 3.5/5 star rating.
