Go digging for gold in Randall’s Riches, a 5 reel, 10 payline mining-themed slot from Realistic Games. It comes with base game multipliers that can boost your payouts by up to 10x as well as a pick me round where prizes of between 15 and 10,000x can be won. Play from between 20p and £60 per spin.

The imagery in Randall’s Riches has a cartoon feel – the miners here owe more to the California Gold Rush than to Arthur Scargill (1 for the teenagers there). As usual with Realistic Games slots, the reels are encased within a video game cabinet.

The brown reels include cans of beans, shaving kit, lamp, horse shoe and pistol. Each of these lower value symbols has a golden version. Include 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these in a winning payline and the payout is boosted by a 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x multiplier. The same applies to the gold Randall’s Riches logo which is the wild.

There are also 3 higher value symbols – a snake, a donkey and the bearded gold digger Randall which award 200, 250 or 300 times your line stake if you land 5 on a payline. The Randall’s Riches logo is the most rewarding, offering up to 1,000x. If these are gold, the multipliers are in play too giving

The pick axe is the scatter – land 3 of these anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger the Pick Axe Bonus feature where you’ll pocket an instant win payout of between 2 and 50 times your total stake. 4 and the prize increases to between 10 and 100 times. A full 5 scatters and you’ll receive between 100 and 1,000 times your stake.

Randall’s Riches comes with a The Search For Randall’s Riches Bonus feature – to play it, you’ll need to land 3 TNT symbols in a payline, starting from the leftmost reel. You’ll be given the pick of a choice of weapons at the entrance of a cave. Keep blasting the cave with your weapons to reveal cash prizes. These can range from between 15 and 1,000 times your total stake.

We found Randall’s Riches a little underwhelming – the visuals are rather cluttered and not as sharp as some more recent releases, such as Big Wheel. The multiplier wilds are a nice addition and the pick me round solid enough. It’s all just a little dull though. Given the theme, we were hoping for rather more explosive action.
