Are you ready to travel back to the 17th century and help d’Artagnan and the three musketeers defeat the evil Cardinal Richelieu? iSoftBet’s Musketeer Megaways™ Richelieu Riches is a fantastic video slot with plenty to offer players… and it’s out in just a few days!
Musketeer Megaways™ Richelieu Riches is a video slot by iSoftBet based on the iconic French novel featuring d’Artagnan. Although this game runs on the Megaways™ Mechanic, which Big Time Gaming developed, it is no ordinary slot.
In fact, it comes with two modes:
Either way, you can expect the game to deliver impressive bonuses, including free spins with an unlimited multiplier, plenty of special symbols, bonus guarantees, and several randomly-triggered features.
Playable from as little as 0.20c/p or 0.50c/p (depending on which mode you pick), the game has medium-to-high volatility and has a max win of 1,000,000 coins!
Graphics & Sounds: 85%
Bonus Features: 95%
Overall score: 91%
If you’re looking for a slot with loads of bonus features, this is your title!
One thing we love about this game is that it’s essentially two games in one.
Both modes offered by the Musketeer Megaways™ slot come with the standard (but no less fantastic) cascading reels. This means that any symbols in a winning combination are replaced by new ones, giving you more chances to win in a single spin. In the All4One mode, this can happen on all four grids!
Free spins have become an expected feature in video slots. Indeed, we can’t think of a single title in our Megaways™ slots list that doesn’t have this feature, but Musketeer Megaways™ actually comes with two versions of the Free Spins feature.
But let’s start with how you get the Free Spins, shall we?
You’ll need to land at least four Diamond symbols on a single grid to be awarded five free spins. But landing each extra Diamond on the same reel also adds an additional free spin, with seven free spins per grid being the maximum.
During the All4One mode, landing the Free Spins feature on multiple grids simultaneously is possible! The game will combine your total number of free spins.
The free spins for both the 1ForAll and All4One features are played on the QuadAction grid. Each of these four grids is a fully-fledged Megaways™ in its own right and comes with its own unlimited win multiplier.
Whenever you land a winning combination or trigger a cascade, the unlimited multiplier, which starts at 1x for all grids, will increase by x1 for that grid only.
BUT, in the All4One free spins, there is a special symbol characterised by The Crown. Landing this on any grid will increase the multiplier of all four grids to match that of the grid with the highest multiplier.
Finally, the free spins come with a bonus guarantee. So if you play through your free spins and don’t win at least 10x the value of your stake per spin, the game will automatically award you an extra three free spins. This is true for both modes.
The Lose To Win Modifier is a feature that can randomly be triggered on any paid spin in which you don’t manage to land a winning combination. Announced by trumpets, this feature will either award you a reel win or even a Free Spins trigger.
Also randomly triggered on any paid spin in the 1ForAll mode, this feature guarantees that all the reels will carry the maximum amount of symbols possible (42). This results in the total amount of Megaways™ possible, that’s 117,649.
The Musketeer Megaways™ RTP changes depending on which mode you’re playing. The RTP for the 1ForAll mode is 95.53%, while the RTP for the All4One mode is 95.99%.
In each case, the volatility is medium to high so that you can expect larger payouts infrequently.
The max win in the game is a cool 1,000,000 coins per game.
In the Musketeer Megaways™ slot, you get to pick how much you’d like each coin to be worth, with your options being 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.30, 0.50, and 1.00c/p.
These, however, are multiplied by 20 for the 1ForAll mode and by 50 for the All4One mode. So, essentially, the stake goes from 0.20c/p and 0.50c/p per spin to €/£20 and €/£50 per spin.
Through all these options, Musketeer Megaways™ gives players the best of both worlds. On the one hand, it easily makes it onto our best low stake Megaways™ slots as its 1ForAll mode has some great features. On the other, the All4One mode rewards players who spend more per spin with a slightly higher RTP and better chances of winning.
Musketeers Megaways™ Richelieu Riches is – rather unsurprisingly – based on Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers, a 19th-century novel that forms part of the d‘Artagnan Romances, a swashbuckler trilogy set in 17th-century France.
Therefore, the main characters in this game are d’Artagnan, a musketeer in all but name; Aramis, Athos, and Porthos, three actual musketeers who befriend him; and Richelieu, a cardinal who is depicted as the baddie in the story.
Don’t worry, though: whether you’re a fan of the books or not doesn’t make much difference to the enjoyment of this game. The theme has been done in a way that everyone can appreciate, with fabulous animations of two rapiers (swords used by musketeers) locking, regal trumpets, and characterful depictions of the musketeers.
All this is set to a soundtrack that wouldn’t go amiss in a period action film and a faux-French voice that narrates everything in the game, which admittedly can get a bit annoying.
Even so, it must be said that iSoftBet has excelled at this game. The seamless graphics are a joy to behold, and playing the game couldn’t be easier with all the buttons marked and exactly where you’d expect to find them. It also comes with iSoftBet’s handy sound button, which lets you switch the soundtrack off, and a lightning button to make the reels spin faster.
The Musketeers Megaways™ slot is part of iSoftBet’s Twisted Tale Series of Megaways™. This includes other literary adaptions like Queen of Wonderland Megaways™, Moriarty Megaways™, Scrooge Megaways™, Morgana Megaways™, and the Sheriff of Nottingham video slot.
The one complicated thing about this game is its paytable, which comprises 18 different symbols.
The card suit symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K, and A) are low-paying, awarding anything between 0.10% and 1.5% of your stake. These are followed by the Royal Declaration, the Money Bag, and the Musketeers’ Hat. These pay higher amounts in that order.
Then there are the special symbols, starting with the characters. In the 1ForAll mode, Richelieu is the highest-paying symbol. In contrast, in the All4One mode, Richelieu is replaced by Aramis, Athos, Porthos, and d’Artagnan in their respective grid as the highest-paying symbol. These pay when you land at least two of them in adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel.
Finally, we have the last four special symbols:
Like many modern Megaways™ titles, Musketeer Megaways™ has been created using a mix of JS and HTML5. So it can be played easily on desktops, laptops, and smart mobile devices running on iOS, Android, or Windows.
