Riches of Rumpelstiltskin Megaways slot from iSoftbet is joins their classic Twisted Tales series which is based on various storybook villains like Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes' arch-enemy and we also have Morgana Megaways to try if you like the Wonderland story instead. No guessing what background we get here along with the appropriate snarls from the grumpy old miser to accompany our play. So can we guess his name and get to escape with our gold before it runs out?
On the reels...
As with most Megaways we get six reels with 2-7 rows on each so Riches of Rumpelstiltskin offers up 324 to 117649-ways to win. You get a top reel over the middle of 4 single symbols where the Wilds will appear. Rumpel himself is top symbol and pays 12.5x for 6-of-a-kind with card values being the lower pays at 1.5 down to 0.6x bet. The maximum 117649-ways spin here is treated as a random modifier and lets you know when it's going to happen, with your second modifier being the old mystery symbols. We can get stacked symbols as well as single here and winning ones are replaced in cascades from above. The final one is the Cash Prize scatter, appearing on all reels but has no value.
You require 5 or more cash scatters to initiate this bonus round. They display a value of 0.5 to 50x stake and you start the respins with the same ways and cash prize symbols in play that you triggered with. This bonus mechanic is based on the old Aztec Gold Megaways bonus by the way. The blanks respin to hopefully land more cash prize symbols, losing a life every time none are added. Our top reel now contains blanks or modifier symbols of which there are four types, each needing 3 occurrences to award their particular modifier. Each modifier can only be triggered 3 times.
They are a global multiplier increase of 1x thus maximum 4x can be attained, extra life, prize boost which applies to some of the values in view and finally reel boosts that boost the 1 or 2 reels to a possible maximum of 8 spaces high.
Riches of Rumpelstiltskin Megaways isn't terrible by any means in the base game with decent symbol pays and regular wins, quite gentle volatility. The game is easy on the eye if a little repetitive where sounds and animations are concerned. The respins feature comes in often enough but is quite volatile in itself and you need to modifiers to get anywhere near the rather unfortunate 5,000x win cap imposed here. It's a variation of the older and has to be said quite successful Aztec Gold Megaways slot and whether you actually want the captive princess to escape is up to you...
