The Riddle Reels slot game turns you into a detective looking to crack as many cases as you can – after all, you only get paid once the villain is in jail. Only the smartest gambler will get to find all the clues.
Yes, we know that as soon as you open this Riddle Reels A Case of Riches slot, you’ll be expecting a classic 3 reeler with a simplified paytable. That’s how classic games work, right?
Sure, but this resembles the Queens Day Tilt slot far more than a game like the TrollPot 5,000 review. For one, you have a rich paytable with 4 high paying suspect symbols and 4 low paying weapon symbols.
Can you match them up to solve the crimes and get the wins you’re looking for? Well, you have 9 whole paylines to try, giving this classic looking game a far more modern feel that should appeal to all lovers of new mobile slots.
In the base game, you sometimes get a wild, and sometimes that wild has a multiplier of x2 or x3. It gives the paytable a little boost and gets you closer to getting that top win of 5,000x your bet max win.
But the real wins come when you get 3 scatters and trigger the bonus game. Here the reels remain, but around it is a board game where you roll the dice to move a little detective around.
It’s a little more complicated than it needs to be for a bonus game. In essence, you get 4 rolls of the die to go around the board and catch anyone of the following features:
The more wins you get, the more you fill the Clue Point Wheel.
When you’re done with the 4 rolls of dice, you’ll get to spin the Clue point wheel. Mostly you fill-up around a third of the wheel and you get to spin a counter. If you land on the blue side you’ve filled you get a Mega Spin
A Mega Spin is a guaranteed win – the middle reel is a stack of wilds and reel 1 and 2 will have the same mystery symbol.
Then the Riddle Reels slot free spins will start again and you’ll get a chance at catching those Mega Spins again, which with the wild multiplier reel is where you win 5,000x your bet or more.
In reality this medium variance slot, so the bonus feature comes often and you may not get more than 20x or 30x your bet. But the good news is that with that top win and frequent features, this chase through the street of London will make you want to play detective.
We’d probably pick this over the 5 reel Cluedo Spinning Detectives slot.

Wild: The wild is the Detective and can appear with a multiplier of x2 and x3.
Scatters: 3 scatters award the bonus feature. But 2 scatters awards a re-spin on the reel that has no scatter for another chance at catching a third scatter. If you don't get that third scatter, you'll trigger a mystery feature instead. The mystery feature is any of the modifiers in the bonus games.
Cases of Riches Bonus: 3 scatter symbols trigger this bonus. You are presented with the 3 reels, only around them is a board game of 14 spaces. Each space has a clue. You get one clue at the start and then 4 clues which you get through a roll of the dice, and each of those will have a spin of the reels.
Each die roll will move the detective from 1 to 6 spaces. Depending on the type of space they fall you'll get any of the following modifiers over 1, 2 or 3 winning spins.
As you play these spins, you'll need to obtain 1, 2 or 3 winning spins to complete clues and get clue points. The clue points are collected in the clue point wheel.
You'll get to spin on the clue point wheel if it gets fully charged or you run out of those 4 dice rolls. The wheel will spin and if it falls on the charged blue side, you'll get a mega spin. If not the bonus round ends.
The Mega spins will be 1 free spin where one reel will be fully wild, sometimes with a multiplier, and reels 2 and 3 will have the exact same weapon or weapon symbols, guaranteeing a win. After the mega spin concludes, the bonus is re-triggered and you can play the Cases of Riches bonus all over again.
The Riddle Reele mobile slot has lots of great features, even if the free spin bonus is a little confusing, once you just start spinning you'll start to appreciate all the little details.
Like how you can get stacks of wilds with multiplier and a top win of 5,000x your bet - which is high for a mid-variance slot.
Riddle Reels A Case of Riches is a 3 reel 9 paylines slot game with a wild, a scatter, multiplier a bonus with free spins and board game features.
