In our busy lives, we all look for places where we can roam freely in our inner thoughts, peacefully enjoying the surroundings and I’ve found you the perfect place! Yin and yang can be found in NetEnt’s Imperial Riches™ in which you’ll be surrounded by the serenity of a large pond filled with the most beautiful lilies and carps. Don’t let yourself distracted by the tranquillity of the pond as you might miss out on the enlightening fireflies that swirl into the air as soon as you open the Imperial Riches™ slot.
The Asian culture is packed with powerful traditions and some can be found back in the Imperial Riches™ slot which will bring you to the far East in which you’ll be surrounded by all the riches of the Asian culture such as carps, bamboo, and lanterns!
Hanging beautifully under the pergola, the red and gold lanterns bring a perfect atmosphere to the reels. Maybe made from paper, maybe from silk with a frame from bamboo or wood, they are always used to lit a candle inside as a source of light. They are often used by Chinese and Japanese in a celebration as it symbolizes the wish for a bright future with Asians believing that red is a symbol of happiness and gold the symbol of wealth. Originally, the Asians hung the lanterns in front of their doors to drive away evil spirits, but even though the purpose of the Asian lanterns has changed, they remain immensely popular and can’t be missed in an Asian-themed video slot.
The Japanese Sakura celebration is linked to the Cherry Blossom Tree and marks the coming of spring. It’s traditionally celebrated in by picnicking with family and friends under the blossoming cherry trees which can be found all over Asia. Flowers – and nature in general – are particularly symbolic throughout Japanese culture, and the cherry blossom represents both a new beginning and the fragility of life. No wonder NetEnt placed an immense Cherry Blossom Tree in the middle of the Imperial Riches™ slot.
And if you create an Asian oasis of peacefulness, the sleeping beauty of Southeast Asia has to join the party together with the lantern, the Cherry Blossom Tree and the fireflies. A sacred lake of lotuses is often depicted in temple courtyards as Buddhists believe that each soul has a lotus on this lake which will open to receive them after death and where they will wait until the time of its opening. Kind of deep stuff so let’s move on the game shall we, because there’s a lot to tell as the Imperial Riches™ slot has been packed with slot features!
I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy this oasis of serenity, emphasized with some typical relaxing sounds from the region. Therefore, the Imperial Riches™ slot has the intention to bring total relaxation, and maybe even better health, but the peace will be disturbed as soon as the Free Falls feature is activated as you’ll be drawn into a series of features that might be responsible for a small spike in your adrenaline levels.
Five online casino jackpots
The Imperial Riches™ slot is offering you a chance to become wealthy with an incredible five NetEnt Jackpots available of which two are fixed and three jackpots are progressive. The two smallest jackpots are the ones that are fixed which means that the amount of the jackpot won’t climb up. Therefore, the Rapid Jackpot’s value is 100.00 while the Mini Jackpot awards a jackpot of 500.00.
The three progressive online casino jackpots, the Midi, Major and Mega Jackpots are climbing up thanks to a tiny contribution from a player’s bet. You, as the player, won’t notice anything of this process, but it is the general way for a progressive jackpot to climb up.
An online casino jackpot can be pooled or local and unlike Mega Fortune™, Mega Fortune Dreams™, Hall of Gods™ and Arabian Nights™, the Imperial Riches™ slot consists of local jackpots only like Divine Fortune™, Cosmic Fortune™ and more.
Thanks to the local character of the online casino jackpots, contributions to the jackpot come from the players of one NetEnt Casino or operator only. The Imperial Riches™ Jackpots remain lower thanks to this fact, but the biggest advantage of a local jackpot is that the competition comes from within one NetEnt Casino or operator as well. Low competition is more chance for you to win a jackpot!
With a maximum bet of 30.00, you don’t have to be a millionaire to become rich and you’ll already have a chance to win one of the five jackpots with a bet as low as 0.15, the minimum bet. To get to a preferred bet in between, you have 10 levels and five coin values available. Any bet will give you a chance to win a jackpot so you don’t have to play with the maximum bet to have a chance. A higher bet might result in a bigger chance to activate the jackpot bonus game, but even the smallest bet provides a chance to win big.
Imperial Riches™ slot features
It’s nice to enter a world of serenity with a chance to win one of the five NetEnt Jackpots, but better is if the game itself provides a good amount of entertainment while you’re on the hunt for a jackpot. Leave that up to NetEnt, the only provider that has access to the popular Avalanche™ mechanic which results in Free Falls. Additional, NetEnt added the Jackpot bonus game, as well as 2 bonus games, and Wild substitutions, all of which ensure that the Imperial Riches™ slot creates multiple chances for big wins.
Thanks to the Avalanche™ mechanics which was introduced in the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot in 2011, the spinning of the reels have been replaced with falling symbols. Avalanches will be responsible for extra wins as symbols involved with winning combinations will be replaced by new symbols until no new wins are created. This totally fits the tranquil theme of the game, although things start to become more exciting as soon as the Free Falls feature is activated!
That’s when your total state of relaxation gets to a halt as three or more Scatters bring you the Free Falls feature. It all starts with 5 Free Falls which equals five Free Spins during which all winning symbols will be counted as jewels. If any jewels are collected, the Lucky Pond Bonus Game will be activated where jewels will fall into the pond filled with carps. If the bonus fish eats three jewels, the Jackpot bonus game will be activated.
During the jackpot bonus game, you’ll receive 50 jewels that can end up being eaten by either the Coin Fish or one of the five Jackpot fishes. Jewels collected by the Coin fish will award 20 or 40 coin wins while the jewels eaten by the Jackpot fishes can award one of the five jackpots. If one of the Jackpot Fishes eats 3 jewels the corresponding Jackpot is won whereafter you’ll return to the oasis of serenity!
