We Explore an Outback Adventure in the Roo Riches Slot From iSoftBet!

 Videoslots Casino has recently added the newest slot from iSoftBet titled Roo Riches which is an Australian themed outback adventure, with Roo the Kangaroo and his animal friends featuring heavily on the reel strips.

The design of this slot feels similar to a land-based slot with just 10 active paylines,  with the addition of a Lightning Side Bet feature, which is buyable for a premium of 20x the current stake size.

Along with regular wins in the base game, there is also a randomly activated Cash Chip feature which adds Coin based wins onto the reels and gives a taster of what to expect in the main bonus feature.

The main free spins bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the Bonus Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and grants free spins that use coin-based rewards on the reels replacing all the regular symbols during the bonus round.

The Lightning Bet is a highly volatile option given the cost to spin the reels, but to fully trigger you need to accumulate wins on all the reel position which then grants re-spins, definitely not a feature for the faint-hearted, and given the increased bet size be very careful if you decide to check out this feature, a £2 regular bet is increased to £40 when activating this feature.

Overall it’s a fairly simplistic slot that that should appeal to fans of the classic land-based style machines, check out all the bonus features in the gameplay video below.

Special Features

Cash Chip Feature

Randomly activated in the base game, any special coin symbols that land in view are collected and awarded, the values are based on your current stake size.

Free Spins

The free spins round is triggered by landing 3 or more Bonus Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels, 3 Scatters awards 7 free spins with additional scatters awarding extra free spins.

During the bonus round the reel strips are replaced with coin-based wins and blank spaces with all coins symbols being collected that land in view.

Lightning Bet

The Lightning Bet feature is a side bet option that costs 20x your current stake per spin, this works similar to the free spins feature except you have to pay for each spin, large coin awards are on offer here and by filling the reels with Lightning (landing a coin on them) will trigger a re-spin mechanic where all coins collected during this mode are then paid out after 3 Lightning re-spins.

Overall Opinions

The Roo Riches Slot From iSoftBet is a fairly average release based against their previous outstanding titles in the last year, likely to appeal most to players who enjoy the classic land-based themed slots that you find a regular casino.

In our playtests, we tested the Lightning bet feature and found it to be a very risky option given the bet size required to play this and to continue long enough to trigger the Lightning re-spins on completion. The regular bonus feature is capable of well over 100x stake wins, and there are some nice high paying symbols in the base game too along with the random Cash chip feature.

Worth a try for a few bonuses but be very careful with the Lightning Bet feature!
