Rising Royals slot from Microgaming

Rising Royals slot from Microgaming
In 2019 Microgaming collaborated with JustForTheWin for the Rising Royals slot machine, a full reskin of Tiki Vikings slot machine, released just a few months earlier. The regal design is excellent, as we come to expect from the developers at JFTW, and the Imperial/aristocratic topics are still as popular as ever. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

In combination with the classical harpsichord symphonic soundtrack, the bright and rich colours set the mood for an upbeat game with lots of rhapsodic sound effects to keep your spirits high as you spin the reels. French royals weren’t famous for being all that generous, so don’t expect Free Spins or Wilds to increase your winning chances here. It’s compensated by the Symbol Lock Re-spin, which keeps a high-value win locked in place and triggers Re-spins to add more premium symbols to your win. Meanwhile, the Symbol Upgrade meter is being filled, and when all 4 stages are shining, the original winning Royal Symbol will be upgraded to higher valued ones.

It sTry the Rising Royals slot machine for free in the DEMO version on our site. It sounds more complicated than it actually is, so see for yourself and discover this Medium Volatility slot with an RTP of 96.01% and a blue-blooded max win of 75 000 coins (calculated as 300x the total bet via max stake). No registration is required.

Personal testers’ opinion

  • It is yet another reskin in the Microgaming portfolio. We believe the mother company (and not JFTW themselves) decide to release these duplicating projects, which are a true definition of what cutting corners means - to fulfill their short term purposes in the cheapest, easiest and quickest way, no matter the contribution to the industry and the satisfaction of the legion of players.
  • Quite frankly, this is one dreary game, with nothing to expect. Rarely a game without Free Spins could be interesting in the long rounds; this royal game, too, cannot sustain our fascination and let the impression of half-done. Besides, the paytable is so poor, we cannot even see a slight reason why: nor are the win ways so many (mostly 1024 ways have such paytable), nor are some amazing combinations possible here (as Wilds are absent).
  • Possibly JustForTheWin didn’t want to endow the machine with many features, but to build a medium variance model leaving out the Free Spins and without a solid high prize is just setting it up for failure. We hope the developers realize this now, seeing the slot positioning in the general rank at many casinos. Our test sessions were unsuccessful with medium and high stakes. The Lock Re-spin/Symbol upgrade kind of vanish during play with such stakes. So, the main (and only) feature doesn’t deliver spectacular wins. Our highest result obtained was 33x the total bet. Super underperformance.
  • We can only leave neutral recommendations for playing with real credits. The low potential will become very swiftly unattractive to the high-rollers and eventually bother even the low-rollers.
  • Regarding the bonus wagering action, we can prescribe playing here if bonus hunters don’t care about uneventful gameplay. If they do mind, they should go for other JFWT (Microgaming) games to wager their bonuses - for example, the twin games: Reel Splitter slot and Shogun of Time slot (both reskins of each other from 2019). There the bonus chasers not only can pursue the mission to wager but will be entertained along the way (by surprisingly attractive/lucrative extra reel feature and Free Spins as well).


No Wilds nor Free Spins are on this Regal agenda.

  • Symbol Lock Re-spin - Whenever you land a win with one of the 4 Royal Symbols, the participating symbols will stick in their places while the reels will be re-spun. Land more identical symbols or another Royal win, and those symbols will be locked as well. This goes on until nothing more is added or until the screen is full with winners and your award is paid out.

Meanwhile, during the Re-spins, the Symbol Upgrade meter is being filled, and once it’s full, all the symbols on the screen are upgraded to the next, more valuable symbol and the meter is reset.
