The Riches of Don Quixote is powered by Playtech and is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot which can be played from 25p to £1,250 a spin. The game is based on the popular Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra which is considered one of the most influential works of literature to come out of Spain. It’s based on a hidalgo who loses his way and decides to revive chivalry, undo his wrongs and bring justice to the world.
The imagery is in line with the novel with Dulcina (a beautiful buxom lady), an old windmill, a chivalrous knight (Don Quixote), the book itself, a shield and helmet on the reels. It’s been beautifully designed to take you back to the Spanish Golden Age and nothing more than you’d expect from a Playtech release.
The Riches of Don Quixote benefits from Stacked Symbols as 6 of the symbols can appear as stacks of 2. They will appear as 1 long image occupying 2 reel positions. This can lead to big wins if you get the higher value symbols stacked on a few reels.
The main attraction is the La Mancha Free Games feature which is played when 3 or more Don Quixote books (the scatter) appear anywhere on the reels – this will reward you with 10 free spins. However, what makes this feature interesting is the increasing multiplier.
You will begin with a 2x multiplier but it goes up by 1 after every 2 free spins. This means that free spins 3 and 4 benefit from a 3x multiplier, free spins 5 and 6 from a 4x multiplier, free spins 7 and 8 from a 5x multiplier and free spins 9 and 10 from a huge 6x multiplier!
On top of this, an extra wild symbol (the windmill) appears in the middle position of the third reel for the duration of the feature – this is known as the frozen wild.
Theme wise, I absolutely love The Riches of Don Quixote and I found it to be a medium variance slot which is nicely balanced and will be just as loved as the popular novel. In terms of the free spins feature, it’s similar to the Iron Man Free Games feature found in The Avengers which I quite like too.
