Musketeer Megaways: Richelieu Riches Slot (iSoftBet)
Musketeer Megaways appears to be a very fun but highly volatile slot machine from iSoftBet. It’s a great addition to the Megaways engine, and with it, we get to enjoy the story of the popular Musketeers.
As a developer with a great track record, we can only expect nothing but the very best from this title:
It’s no doubt that Musketeer Megaways: Richelieu Riches is a modern video slot machine, and with it, you will be working with up to 6 reels, with as many as 117,649 Megaways.
Inside, you also get some excellent features that include free spins, All 4 One mode (4 sets of reels), cascading reels, and increasing multipliers among others.
Betting and Prizes
You have different betting modes, and depending on the one that you chose to use for your real money bets, you can spend either $0.20 on a spin (this is for 1 For All), or $0.50 (when using the All 4 One). This way, you get to use a MAX bet of either $20 or $50, which fully depends on the method that you chose to use.
Musketeer Megaways: Richelieu Riches has one of the best payments, and by this, I mean, you stand an opportunity to take home as much as 33,980x the stake, which is not a common offer, even on the most volatile slots.
The developer has placed a cap at 1,000,000 coins, which suggests that in the All 4 One Mode, you may only hit wins of up to 20,000xs.
The RTP value changes based on the mode that you are working with. For the 1 For mode, you get 95.51%, and 1 set of reels, while the other version of All 4 One will give you 96%.
Musketeer Megaways: Richelieu Riches Features
As earlier mentioned, you get two playing modes for this slot. You are free to choose any mode that you want. 1 For All: this one relies on just 1 set of reels, with a relatively low RTP at 95.51%.
The format is inspired by Richelieu, and you can notice his name appearing on top. This may also be accompanied by an additional feature known as the Lose to Win modifier. This way, you are guaranteed either a win or a feature, and all these events are random. In some cases, it can deliver the Max Megaways, and this one will boost the Megaways/number of ways to win to the highest number possible.
All 4 One: with this mode, up to 4 sets of reels will go into a spin, with the RTP hitting 96%. For every set of reels, you get a dedicated character, with its name printed on top (Athos, D’Artagnan, Porthos, and Aramis).
However, you get the same combination of 6 reels and a MAX of 117,649 ways to win, which is the common set-up on most Megaways slots.
Cascading reels is the mechanic that you will be dealing with here, and I love its potential in the way it removes the winning symbols and replaces them with new ones. This process will only come to an end once there are no more new wins.
The Wild feature is present as well, and upon landing it on the slot’s middle reels (2-5), it will substitute other regular symbols. However, you cannot use the Wild to substitute the Mystery/Bonus features. There is also a Musketeer Wild that is designed precisely for the All 4 One mode. Every set of reels gets a substitute.
Then there is the Mystery symbol which comes in the image of a Windmill. Every time it lands, the associated symbol will be transformed into a regular single form of symbol.
The Diamond scatters are what you will need to trigger the free spins, and to do so, you will be required to land between 4 and 6 on the slot’s reels. This way, the slot will reward you with between 5 and 7 free spins.
With the help of the Cascading reels, you can increase the multiplier by 1x, for every round triggered. The best part about this multiplier is that it has no limit on its value, but it will only increase for the reels participating in the wins.
Theme & Design
The design that iSoftBet has applied on Musketeer Megaways: Richelieu Riches is perhaps the greatest that we have seen so far, out of the slot games that used the same story.
For the symbols, we have images of Richelieu (four musketeers), others are hats, letters, money bags, and half a dozen Royals. Others are the Diamonds scatters, Windmill mystery symbols, and the Wilds.
With this slot, iSoftBet did more than enough and you get the very best in each of its areas. Musketeer Megaways: Richelieu Riches has an interesting story and action as well, and players get lots of options to work with.
If you are good at handling high volatility slots, then you will have fun playing this new release by iSoftBet.
