The Caravan of Riches slot gives you 5 reels with 3x4x5x4x3 rows of symbols set along the silk road, as you chase 5 of a kind wins for an instant cash mini-game with scatters that trigger multi-level free spins.
Caravan of Riches is a slot by Fantasma Games set in the time of Marco Polo with an RTP of 96.03%, 20 paylines, a low minimum bet of 0.20 a spin, and medium volatility with wild, scatters, and two bonus features.
The first bonus feature is triggered whenever you get a 5 of a kind win – the winning symbols will turn around and spin again to give you either cash wins of 0.5x to 100x your bet, depending on which symbol gave you the win.
However, you really want to catch the scatters because then you’ll catch 10 free spins where you can go up 5 levels. On each level you get fewer and fewer symbols, giving you progressively richer reels.
From the Aldo’s Journey slot to the Golden Caravan review, Marco Polo will always spark the imagination. Who doesn’t love the idea of going on a grand adventure down the richest trade route to bring back home riches and treasures?
And this is a grand adventure, with a busy marketplace in the back promising that you’ll walk around this bazaar and find something you didn’t even know you needed. Though you will have to play in portrait rather than landscape, which can be annoying when you love playing online or iPad casino.
You’ll soon get into the swing of things though, as you spin to get wins over 20 paylines with a wild that shows up often. However, it’s the free spins that hide the top wins of this Caravan of Riches slot machine.
3 scatters, whether through the Silk Road bonus or by finding them on the reels, will trigger 10 free spins. During the Caravan of Riches slot free spins, there’s nothing special at first. But each time you collect 4 scatters, you go up a level.
On each level, one of the top characters is removed and replaced with the next one on the paytable, giving you progressively richer reels. By level 4, only the top 1 character symbol can land on the reels.
The problem, of course, is that you don’t get to that level very often. In fact, getting to level 2 or 3 is hard enough, even though going up a level gives you +3 spins.
Personally, we would probably still prefer to play on the Elemento slot or the Serpent Shrine slot game, also by Fantasma. But if we were to come across this Caravan of Riches video slot, we would probably still take a couple of spins.

Wild: The W is the wild symbol and can land on reels 2, 3, and 4 to replace all other symbols.
Silk Road Feature: When you get a cluster of symbols spread across reels 1 to 5, you activate the Silk Road Feature. Then those symbols will respin and will reveal either a blank, a coin cash value, or a scatter symbol. Depending on which symbol you land, you can reveal different cash amounts.
Scatter: This signpost symbol can land on reels 2, 3, and 4. 3 scatter symbols award you 10 free spins, but with a chance to upgrade the free spin symbol value.
Every 4 scatters collected during the free spins will upgrade the free spins to the next level and add +3 free spins.
You have 5 levels of free spins:
3 scatters landing on the reel in the free spins can award a +5 free spins.
That said, for a 5 reel slot game with 20 paylines, there's a fun speed to the Caravan of Riches mobile slot as every 5 of a kind win leads to a hidden pot of riches. Of course, simply giving us a better paytable would have made us equally exciting.
The multi-level free spins can also be a little frustrating, but there's nothing quite like progressively richer reels as you collect scatters along the way. Fans of the Desert Shark slot will enjoy this Fantasma Game.
