Ascension Rise to Riches is a game that has the following features:
Furthermore, the golden winged scarab wild symbol in the game acts as a substitute for all other regular symbols in the game, as well as being the game's most valuable symbol. You will be awarded 125 times what you bet if you land five symbols on a payline. The payout will be given if you land five symbols on a payline.given if you land five symbols on a payline. In comparison, the top-tier triple Ankh symbol will award you with a 37.5x multiplier on your stake when you line up three symbols on a payline.
On the left side of the screen, you can see the Epic Strike scatter jackpots that are available at every stage of the game, as well as the instant jackpots which are available at every stage of the game. In order to trigger the Epic Strike feature, you must land between 3 and 9 scatters of Osiris anywhere on the reels, and if you do, you will be awarded 1x, 5x, 15x, 40x, 100x, 500x, or 2,000x your stake, depending on how many scatters you have landed.
It is necessary to land three scatter symbols at the same time on reels 2, 3 and 4 in order to trigger the free spins bonus round, and you will only be eligible for the bonus round if you land three scatter symbols at the same time. The scatter symbols that trigger the Free Spins Wheel award you 1x your stake up-front, and then you get a spin to win 1x your stake from the scatter symbols that triggered the Free Spins Wheel.
It is possible to win between 10 and 30 free spins when you spin the Wheel, with a multiplier of x2, or even x3. Whenever you retrigger the feature, you receive the same amount of additional free spins as you originally got when you first triggered it. When you retrigger the feature, you receive the same multiplier that you got originally, which will boost all wins except scatter wins.
Ascension Rise to Riches is a 200 spins ascension slot machine.
As we began playing the base game, nothing much happened for us until we landed three scatter symbols to trigger a spin on the Free Spins Wheel, and then everything changed for us. Around 0:50 into the two-minute highlights video is when this happens, and we get 10 spins with a multiplier of x2. The following video will show you how much we got away with and how much we were able to get away with if you click on the play button below.
The summary of the review is as follows:
We see plenty of similar games every month from Microgaming's partner, Old Skool Studios, which has hardly reinvented the reel with Ascension Rise to Riches and certainly not the "reel". With the use of the trademarked Epic Strike feature, the tension is kept at a decent level, though the 2,000x scatter win prize is nothing out of the ordinary. From a visual point of view, the ancient Egypt theme is nicely done, yet it doesn't stand out too much either.
If you don't land a screen full of wilds, which is highly unlikely, then the largest payout in the regular base game is 750x your stake. The bonus round multiplier doubles or triples the amount of the bonus round win, up to the maximum payout of 2,000x, so it's a potential with a fair amount of upside when you take into account the low volatility. For casual punters, this is an okay alternative in the ‘scatter win’ genre, although it’s pretty much a reskin of Blazing Mammoth (which again is a 9 Masks of Fire copycat).
