iSoftBet, a Malta-based iGaming provider, has put its own twist on the tale of Rumpelstiltskin through a new online slot, Riches of Rumpelstiltskin Megaways. This is part of the company’s Twisted Tale Series, known for its unique slot mechanic, Megaways. With 117,649 winning combinations, it has a maximum payout of 10,000x.
Rumpelstiltskin is the main character in the game, and the background is an autumn rural landscape where fireflies flutter. Players must form matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the left, on dynamic 6×4 grid that has up to 10 paying symbols.
Keys, looms, the miller’s daughter and Rumpelstiltskin are the bonus high-value symbols, while the 9-A symbols are the basic low-value symbols. A combination of six identical low-value symbols is worth 0.5 to 1.5 the amount wagered bet, and the value increases to 2-12.5x if high-value identical symbols hit.
With an RTP of 96.01%, the game has the highest volatility of any game online. Paid spins can be traded for up to $20, and the game is available for play on any mobile device or PC.
In the cascade feature, winning paths are removed from the grid and empty spaces are filled with new symbols. The cascade feature is activated again if the player wins with these symbols. A Wild symbol replaces any symbol except Scatters and Mystery symbols when it lands on the top tracking reel to help players connect a win.
When appearing on the grid, mystery symbols can become one of 10 pay symbols. With Max Megaways, the reels are triggered at random to create 117,649 winning combinations.
The Rumpel Respins feature is activated when a player hits five scatters that have bet multipliers. Then, these scatters stay in place for the remainder of the round. However, the feature is only activated if the grid has scatters, blanks or boosters.
Players are initially rewarded with three respins. Then, if a new scatter or booster arrives, the number of spins is reset to three.
