Luxurious and stylish, the Riviera Riches mobile slot has all the classic style and look of a 1950’s James Bond Casino Royale. As entertaining as 007 himself.
The champagne is flowing, the classic cars are parked, and the roulette wheel is spinning in the Riviera Riches slot game. You get the kind of wealth and opulence that you rarely get in your local casino, but dream about as a gambler.
Yet, despite the pretty graphics and the sexy sounds, we found this theme to be slightly… shallow. The haughty man and women in these 5 reels and 15 paylines make it hard to love, even if the game play for this low variance game is actually very entertaining. It’s a little like High Society slot – crappy theme, but good game.
The flashiest of the Riviera Riches slot machine bonus features, it’s pretty as a you’d expect, especially as Microgaming do their own mobile roulette games which are to die for. And every time you get two bonus symbols anywhere on reels 1 and 5 you’l be taken to a roulette game where you’ll pick a different number of 1 to 6 twice.
We write more about the details of the bonus feature below, but it’s basically more for show than for big wins. Most of the time you’ll walk away with about 10x your bet. At most, you’ll get 36x your bet if you get the zero… so the opposite of what would happen at a real casino. Ironically the one number you can’t bet on, but the one you want to show up most of all.
It’s one of the Microgaming slots. What did you expect? It’s always all about the free spin rounds.
You’ll get 12 free spins with a 3x multiplier on 3 scatters, which can be very rewarding, especially if you trigger the bonus feature within the game. We are talking about 40x your bet on a good round. Mostly, you’re talking about 20x to 30x your bet. Though of course, there is potential to win, with the max possibly win at a decent, but almost impossible, 650 times your bet.
Yet, much like the theme, this is more the gambler seeking entertainment than the high roller, despite the luxury theme. The return to player rate is an incredibly high 97%, but then so is how often you get wins, at 33%. Which means lots of little wins of 2x and 5x your bet.
Riviera Riches video slot is a nice enough Microgaming game, but comparing it to some of its amazing brothers and sisters, this is merely average. Still better than your average mobile video slot, but average for Microgaming. If you want something with a little more bite but still low risk, head to the more fun Hitman slot, or go for something with a bigger chance of wins, in the Avalon slot machine.
Yet, if you’re looking for that high roller feeling, without the risk, Riviera Riches mobile phone slot is fun enough to keep you playing.

Wild Symbol: The Rivera Riches slot logo is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols. We love it especially as it comes with a 2x multiplier on any win, which can help keep your budget topped up.
The Roulette Bonus Game: Get the Bonus trigger symbol on reels 1 and 5 and you'll be taken to a second screen. You'll get two spins on the Roulette win, allowing for you to collect multipliers on your bet.
You will select one number out of 36 on the Roulette Table and then spin the Roulette Wheel. You'll win really big if the ball lands on your selected number, but we haven't seen it ourselves, though we've heard rumours of 100 to 200 times your bet.
But if it doesn't land on your number, don't worry, you still win on all corresponding bets associated with the selected number (ie. odd, red, first quarter, etc...). That along with a guaranteed 4x multiplier at the start of the games bonus feature, helps give you at least a good 10x your bet to keep you spinning.
The Glorious Free Spins: 3 or more Scatters showing up anywhere on the five reels will trigger 12 free spins, in which all prizes are multiplied by 3x.
You can re-trigger these, in which case bravo! You're talking major wins. Get the bonus roulette feature in here too and you'll walk away from this casino with a grin.
Riviera Riches mobile slot is an above average game that deserve the attention of gamblers who love that luxury theme without having to bet the house to have some fun.
There are better Microgaming video slots out there, of that there is no doubt. But this is still good fun on a rainy afternoon when you want to catch some free spins and a little roulette to boot.
