Riches of Rumpelstiltskin Megaways’ Exciting New Features
Similar to its predecessors, Riches of Rumpelstiltskin Megaways follows a particularly villainous character from a well-known fairy tale. The villain and protagonist of this game is a conniving little imp who offers to spin straw into gold for the miller’s daughter to help her avoid death.
However, the favour comes at quite a big cost: her firstborn child. He agrees to return the baby if she can guess his name which she manages to accomplish after overhearing him say it whilst gloating: Rumpelstiltskin! Turns out there’s a happy ending to this dark and twisted tale after all, even if some versions end with Rumpelstiltskin gruesomely tearing himself in two.
The first of the game’s unique features is the Mystery symbol.
These can appear on any reel and will all transform into the same randomly selected paid symbol, potentially creating more winning combinations.
Another way for players to win big is with the Max Megaways feature which can be triggered randomly on any spin.
This maxes out each of the reels to give that particular spin the game’s maximum 117,649 ways to win.
As the title suggests, players should be on the look out for Rumpelstiltskin’s riches since the Scatter symbol is represented by a pot of gold.
The Rumpel Respins bonus round activates when 5 or more Scatter symbols land on the reels.
Players start the round with 3 Respins. If a Scatter or Booster symbol lands on the reels, the number of respins is reset to 3.
At the start of this feature, the Scatter symbols become sticky and the rest of the grid will be emptied and remain blank. Only new Scatter symbols are able to land on the reels with each spin but not on the top tracker reel.
All Scatter symbols that land during the bonus round will become sticky and the total multiplier value will be added to the total winnings when the feature comes to an end.
Like all other Megaways slots, this game features a familiar top tracker reel that adds a symbol to the top of reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. While it operates no differently from its kin in a standard Megaways slot, it truly shines when the Rumpel Respins bonus round is active.
During the bonus round, only Booster symbols can appear on the top tracker. Collecting three of the same type of Booster symbol will activate its respective power-up. Each Booster can be won a maximum of 3 times and will be upgraded each time it is activated after the first instance. There are four different types of Boosters with different effects which are as follows:
|Booster Symbol||Booster Effect|
