Net Entertainment are a Swedish company but gained enough success to have offices all over the world. Net Entertainment do make the house edge information of their slots games available and this can be found in the help files of the game (usually accessed by pressing the ‘?’ button at the bottom left of the game window). As such, we can state that the House Edge for Imperial Riches is 3.12%.
Imperial Riches uses 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. Win are formed vis traditional paylines, with 20 in total, playing from left to right. After each win is formed the winning symbols will disappear, remaining symbols will drop down in their place and new symbols will be added to the top of the reels, giving you another chance to try and form a win. If you do form another win then the process will repeat.
Wild – Wild symbols can only appear on reels 2-4 and will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatters – The “Chinese Lantern” symbol is the Scatter, which will trigger the Free Spins feature if you can land 3 or more of them on the reels on a single spin.
Free Spins – If you can land 3 or more “Chinese Lantern” symbols on the reels in a single spin then you will be granted 10 Free Spins. If you land a “Chinese Lantern” symbol on the reels during the Free Spins feature then you will be awarded an additional 5 Free Spins. During the Free Spins all symbols that contribute to wins are counted as jewels, which means they will contribute to the bonus round.
Lucky Bonus Pond Game – The Lucky Bonus Pond Game begins if you have landed any wins during the Free Spins and a will begin directly after the 10 Free Spins have finished. Each Jewel that was collected during the Free Spins will now fall into a pond with 2 fish. Each jewel that is eaten by the fish will award 5, 10 or 15 coins and the coin win is multiplied by the triggering bet size. If 3 jewels are eaten then the Jackpot is triggered.
Jackpot Game – At the start of the Jackpot 50 jewels will fall into the pond which will either trigger one of the Jackpots or they will award a coin win. There are 6 fish in the pond in total, 1 coin fish and 5 Jackpot fish (1 for each jackpot). Whichever fish eats 3 jewels first, that will be the reward that is triggered. Jewels that are eaten by the coin fish will be worth between 20 and 40 coins each. 2 of the Jackpots that you can win have fixed values, whilst 3 of them are progressive Jackpots. The value for each of the Jackpots will be displayed above the reels during your spins.
Imperial Riches is one of Net Entertainment’s standard slots but they have done a few things that make it a little bit more special than that. In terms of its aesthetic, Imperial Riches looks as good as any Asian themed slot you will see, but as these sorts of slots are so common there is nothing much to make it visually superior to other sorts of games. However, there are 2 big positives. The first is the progressive jackpot, because who doesn’t love a progressive jackpot? The other has to be the exceptionally low house edge. This slot might appear below par for the software giants but it is offering excellent value for money and as such is worth checking out.
