At the end of last week, purely coincidental to time with the broadcasting of the car crash interview of the Duke of York by the BBC Newsnight programme, Microgaming announced the release of their latest slot game Rising Royals. Although Rising Royals is based around and themed on the Palace of Versailles and their inhabitants and not Buckingham Palace and the British Royal Family!
Rising Royals has been developed exclusively for Microgaming by the studio Just For The Win, the same studio that brought players at Microgaming powered casinos, the slot games, Tweet Hearts and Deco Diamonds Deluxe.
With an RTP of 96.01%, Rising Royals is a 5 reel, 3 row slot machine that incorporates 20 paylines. Featuring a royal theme and a maximum win of 300 times your bet stake, Rising Royals is in all honesty standard fare and unfortunately goes no where near raising the bar, when it comes to innovation. Although the press release for the game, does state: “Filled with exciting features and a full cast of French royals, this title can bestow regal rewards.”
That said I am sure it will appeal to some players and being a medium variance slot, should provide a decent amount of game time. But, it would be good to see Microgaming release a slot game that makes you go WOW. There is still time however left in 2019 for this to happen, so fingers crossed here anyhow!
Commenting on the release of Rising Royals, James Buchanan, Microgaming’s very own Director of Global Operations, stated: “Just For The Win’s latest creation is an entertaining online slot that is equally rich in both graphics and features.”
“The Symbol Lock Re-spin and Symbol Upgrade combine to add tremendous excitement with players looking for a full grid of the Rising Royals symbol, offering the potential for fantastic wins.”
With Just For The Win’s Chief Executive Officer, Johan Persson, commenting: “Rising Royals is an elegant and incredibly fun new title complete with powdered wigs, jewelled shoes and a whole cast of royal characters!”
“Utilising the Symbol Lock Re-spin and Symbol Upgrade features, players have a chance to achieve magnificent fortunes. We are so excited for players to experience this feature rich game with endless glamour, class and nobility.”
