Riverboat Gambler Slot Machine

Experience the Mississippi river like never before. Hop on board this riverboat themed slot machine and you could be in with a chance to win a 20,000 credit jackpot prize. Riverboat Gambler is a 5-reel video slot with 20 paylines and some special bonus features, including multiplying wild symbols and scatter icons which reward 15 free spins. There isn't any gamble game, so players will have to settle with the wins that they get on this mobile optimised slot machine by Realistic Games, which has proved very popular as an iPhone slot.

Keep on Sailing

Riverboat Gambler takes spinners on an extravagant spinning journey which sails along the southern states of the old-style USA with its luxury cruise ship theme. As such, players will see everything on their game screens from the inner working mechanics of the riverboat to various symbols which depict a bell, life rings, a menu, a passenger as well as the entertainment – which is a blonde bombshell dancing girl. All of these symbols are illustrated in 2D format, making them fairly basic in appearance while retaining some of that yesteryear charm, especially with some old American style fonts which are used to represent the lower paying card values.

The actual game screen of this slot machine is only one aspect of the overall appearance, because Riverboat Gambler is actually presented as if it were being played upon a real arcade games machine. That means that the action can be controlled with realistic command buttons while arcade style sound effects play in the background. That said, the music of this slot machine isn't so generic because it will play some show tune ditties whenever the reels spin and especially when the bonus free spins are triggered.

Special Symbols

Those bonus free spins will be activated whenever three or more scatter icons appear on the reels in any position. This special symbol, which is depicted by a menu, will trigger 15 free spins during which all wins will be multiplied by 3x. Plus, the scatter itself will reward some winning prizes by multiplying the value of spinners' bets, even if they don't line up on an active payline. For example, three scatters anywhere on the reels will multiply all bets by 5x, four scatters will pay 75x and five scatters will go for a 500x total bet prize.

Wild Multipliers

Like most Realistic Games titles, this slot machine has a top jackpot of 20,000 credits. Admittedly, that might not sound like the biggest win in the business, but it's a more than decent return from the low maximum line bet of 0.50 credits which this game has to offer. That top win will only be awarded when players happen to find five matching “Riverboat Gambler” logo icons on an active payline to award a 40,000x line bet multiplier.

That logo icon is also worth keeping an eye out for whenever you spin the reels because it also plays as the game's wild symbol, thus completing winning connections between other icons except for the scatter symbol. Plus, whenever this happens, a special bonus multiplier will be applied to the wins depending on how many wild symbols are involved. So, if one wild helps to complete a win, then the normal payout prize will be doubled while two wilds in a win will triple the prize, and so on.

Riverboat Prizes

Now that you know all of the special gameplay features that lie in store as you cruise the river with this riverboat themed game, it's probably about time we told you about the standard payout values. Because, let's face it, you're likely to come across these small scale line wins on a more regular basis than any huge scatter wins and wild multipliers. You can see for yourself in the table below just how much each normal symbol is set to pay out in line bet multipliers when it combines on a payline from left to right.

Same Setting, Different Theme

Riverboat Gambler presents a unique little theme upon the typical Realistic Games set-up of a virtual arcade seen in games like Pentagram. The gameplay is fairly straightforward with no special interactive bonus game or gambling game to truly boost your betting balance. However, this slot machine does offer a lot of bonus multiplier action, be it through wild wins or with free spins. As such, there is always the possibility that players will unleash a bigger win than expected.
