The pay lines, aptly dubbed “Megaways” by the creators, amount to a staggering 117,649 ways to win on a massive 6 X 4 reel layout. Having that many ways to win sounded almost too good to be true, that is why, unfortunately, Queen of Riches mobile slot seems to be of a higher variance. This means most of the time, you will be locking your eyes on a couple of reels flashing up, with wins being mostly underwhelming.
You can start playing Queen of the Riches with a minimum bet of 20p per spin. The maximum bet is capped at £40, and would fit the high rollers aiming for the jackpot.
With the underwhelming winnings, is it all bad then? No, not really… Even with the low payouts, we feel that the high frequency of the payouts somewhat compensates. Also, the Queen is a little generous when it comes to the Jackpot. It would definitely blow your socks sky high with winnings reaching up to 1,000 times your spin wager.

Big Time Gaming has done a splendid job by packing three features into this game, all of which are extremely simple. First up is the 117,649 Megaways ways to win. Sounds unbelievable isn’t it? Well, you have to look at it from a different perspective for it to make sense.
Remember, all your reels can have up to 7 symbols so if you took that number (or whatever number of symbols on your reels) and powered it by 7, you did get the 117,649 wins that Big Time Gaming has claimed. This might sound a tad complicated, but honestly, the details don’t really matter. Just hope that the Queen blesses you with profitable symbols!
Next, we have the Cloned Reels. Unlike the Megaways feature which is embedded to the slot, the Cloned Reels feature is randomly triggered during your spins. At least two of your reels will light up and will be cloned with adjacent symbols to complete winning lines. Something like Wild symbols, but for your whole reel.
Finally, we have the Full Reel Wilds. In this feature, the Queen, Cleopatra herself will appear and take over at least one of your reels during your spins. Here is where the magic begins: Cleopatra will count for all the seven symbols and add a 7X multipliers on all your winnings on that reel. Hence, if she occupied at least 2 of your reels, your winnings will be 2^7. That is a staggering 49 times your wager. All things said and done, Cleopatra is pretty generous queen if you asked us.

The performance of the game is impeccable, everything about the game feels fast, to the point of being snappy. In fact, the speed helps you get over losing bets (not really a plus point). The game loads at record time on my old Samsung Galaxy S3. Speaking of impeccable, the graphics and general Egyptian theme were on point with minor details such as the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs adorning the frames being super realistic. The background Egyptian themed soundtrack is also distinct without being too over the top.
Animations are flawless, right down to the last detail of wild Cleopatra being a lively animated portrait. The sound effects of the game maintains presence without distracting the player, if any, it actually helps you stay focused on the game.

The most unique feature of this game is, in fact, its simplicity. The lack of complicated features means you will not have to spend so much time reading through reviews or menus just to find out how the game works. All you have to do is just sit back, relax, and hit the spin button and watch all that money roll into your bank account. Besides, Big Time Gaming will take you all the way to Egypt for literally 1% of the price if you were to go there yourself. What’s more? Enjoy Egypt, and hopefully the Queen of Riches rewards you handsomely!
Queen of Riches is a basic slot game that tempts users with simple gameplay, high payout frequency, stunning game design and an even better potential for a jackpot win of over 1000x your wager. The Queen is smart enough to draw out an occasional reel clone to keep the boredom away and she is, in all aspects, a great queen.
Worship her faithfully and you might just earn her favour for a massive jackpot.
