Romanov Riches is a Microgaming slot with 5 reels and 15 paylines that can be played from 20p to £100 a spin on all devices. Based on the legendary riches of Russia’s Romanov dynasty, you collect gems to get big wins. Large Mystery Stacks on every reel are replaced by a single symbol which can give you re-spins for bigger wins. There’s also 3 Wheel Bonus features where cash prizes and multipliers can be won for wins of up to 1,000 times your stake.

Visually, Romanov Riches looks rather good – with an opulent feel, you will see A, K, Q, J and 10 royals on the reels as well as 4 Russian Royal Gems (red, purple, blue and green). There’s also a snowflake wild which replaces all other symbols on the reels.

Each reel in Romanov Riches has a stack of Mystery Symbols – a single symbol replaces the stack of Mystery Symbols on each reel. On each base game spin, the same symbol replaces the 2 leftmost Mystery Stacks meaning bigger wins are possible. The remaining Mystery Stacks can be replaced by different symbols including the Bonus symbols. This is known as the Mystery Stacks feature.

Now, matching full symbol stack can trigger the Re-Spin feature – these must land on 2 to 4 reels and must be adjacent and start from reel 1 (i.e. reels 1 and 2 show the same Mystery Stacks). The triggering stacks then lock in place with the other reels re-spinning. Mystery stacks can change to match the triggering stacks – if they match, another re-spin is awarded. This can lead to all 5 reels showing the symbol Mystery Stacks – this can result in wins of up to 750 times your stake!

Romanov Riches also comes with 3 Wheel Bonus features – these are played when full stacks of Bonus symbols land beginning on reel 1. 3, 4 or 5 Bonus stacks will give you 1, 2 or 3 Bonus Wheels respectively:

  • 3 Bonus stacks will trigger Wheel 1
  • 4 Bonus stacks will trigger Wheel 2
  • 5 Bonus stacks will trigger Wheel 3

Both wheels 1 and 2 will reward you with cash prizes whilst wheel 3 will give you a multiplier (up to 10x) that’s applied to the winnings from both wheels 1 and 2. In total, there’s 1,000 times your stake to be won here overall.

Romanov Riches is a medium variance game which offers payouts of up to 750 times your stake on each base game spin or re-spin. That goes up to 1,000 times your stake in the Wheel Bonus features which is decent. You’ll get more frequent wins from the Re-Spins feature where collecting gems of the Romanovs can unlock the riches of the Russian Czars. Overall, it’s a decent slot with good win potential throughout – if you like gems, IGT’s Da Vinci Diamonds is recommended.
