Theme – This slot is very reminiscent of a well-known and extremely popular classic board game. The goal of this slot is to hit the Bonus feature and then solve the case. Like the board game mentioned you pick up clues in this part of the slot in an attempt to do so, which will result in you hitting the Jackpot. Add a Sherlock Holmes kind of character and you have a slot that is all about cracking the case.
Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches is a 3 reel slot and each reel is 3 symbols in height. There are 9 paylines in total, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Detectives”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. Some Wilds can come with a 2x or a 3x multiplier.
Scatter – The “Question Mark” is the game’s Scatter symbol. Three or more Scatter symbols will trigger the game’s Bonus feature. However, 2 Scatters will award you a respin on the reel that is missing the necessary symbol to trigger the feature. If that extra spin lands a Scatter you will trigger the feature as normal and if it does not the reels with 2 Scatters become fully stacked Mystery symbols.
Mystery – Mystery symbols are only available following a respin that fails to trigger the Bonus feature. When they land they will all spin around to reveal identical symbols, which you need to hope match one or more of the remaining symbols on the reels.
Case of Riches Bonus Feature – If you trigger the Case of Riches Bonus Feature then you will be taken to a new set of reels with a board surrounding them. You are given 4 rolls of a dice and will take your detective character around the board with each roll. When he lands on a space a case will be set that you need to solve. You will be given a goal, such as land 2 wins in a row in 2 spins. The difficulty of the task will be measured and you will receive points for completing the task. Those points are then added to a meter and when the feature ends you will spin the wheel on the meter in an effort to win the Mega Spin.
Clue Points Wheel – The meter for the Case of Riches Bonus is called the Clue Points wheel. As you solve clues a blue bar will begin to fill around the wheel. Once the feature ends you will spin the wheel and if you land on the blue bar you will trigger a Mega Spin.
Mega Spin – If you trigger the Mega Spin then the middle reel will fill with Wilds that can come with a multiplier , up to 3x the bet, along with 2 fully stacked reels containing either the sae suspect or weapon.
