Get Serene and Win Imperial Riches!
is a new video slot from NetEnt
which combines the serene elegance of a Chinese garden with an exciting chance to win any of five different jackpots
. That combination of serenity and excitement might sound rather strange, but it works surprisingly well here, and the game should therefore suit anyone who wants to wind down at the end of a long day just as much as those who have ambitions to win big.
An Oasis of Eastern Calm
The Chinese garden which serves as the main backdrop to this game is gorgeous
, and shows a large pond, the surface of which is peppered with a variety of coloured water lilies. The pond is flanked by two walkways, which are illuminated by Chinese lanterns, and whilst the animation of this background scene might first appear fairly minimal, there is more than enough to make it feel far more immersive than a simple two-dimensional painting. In fact, as you play you will notice that the background cycles through the day to night and back again, and the presence of the lanterns, and their reflections on the pool surface, becomes more pronounced.
of plain white serve to emphasise simplicity, and the symbols that occupy them are similarly clean and minimalist. They include three playing card ranks (Q, K and A), a bamboo plant, lucky coins, a gold ingot, a golden fish, a lantern scatter and a gong wild.
The serenity of the scene provided by the visuals in this game is enhanced to a huge degree by the traditional Chinese music that plays throughout the game. The tempo of this soundtrack is suitably gentle until you trigger a special feature, when it becomes rather more celebratory, and the sound effects which highlight wins and other events are similarly in keeping with the traditional ambience.
Five Jackpots to Play For
There are five jackpots to play for in Imperial Riches. Two of those, which are known as the Rapid and the Mini, have a fixed value, whilst the other three, which are known as the Midi, the Major and the Mega, are progressive
and therefore increase in value until they are won.
When you get three or more scatter symbols on the reels you will trigger a Free Falls round
that will award you 10, 15 or 20 free spins, according to whether you activated the feature with three, four or five scatters. An Avalanche mechanic is active here, and each winning combination in this part of the game will be collected as a jewel and removed from the reels, creating space for more symbols to fall into their place.
Lucky Pond Bonus Game
If you have collected any jewels by the time the Free Falls round ends, you will be taken to the Lucky Pond Bonus Game
. Here the jewels will fall into a pond and can then be eaten by Coin Fish or Bonus Fish. The Coin fish will effectively give you cash for your jewels, but the Bonus Fish will – if it eats three jewels – give you access to the Jackpot Game.
This is where you could potentially win any of the five available jackpots. Six fish are in the pond, one for each jackpot and a Coin Fish, and your prize will be decided by the first fish to eat three jewels.
The Promise of Fortune
‘This game is packed with features,’ said Bryan Upton, who is Director of Games at NetEnt. ‘We are continuing with our Jackpot successes this year, with Imperial Riches but with our Avalanche mechanic. The 3 stage nested bonuses give players a chance to experience the Free Falls game, collecting jewels from wins for entry into another coin win feature and then a Jackpot bonus game. The chance to win one of five realistically priced jackpots and the beautiful, authentic Asian artwork and theme makes this game speak the promise of fortune for players across the board.’
You can play Imperial Riches at Rizk Casino
and other venues offering NetEnt games.
