Playtech The Riches of Don Quixote Video Slot Review

The Riches of Don Quixote: Demo

Join one of literature’s most famous creations in The Riches of Don Quixote, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Playtech. Based on the 17th century novel by Spanish author Cervantes, this slot adaptation comes with a bonus feature that offers 10 free spins complete with frozen wilds and an expanding multiplier. Get lost in La Mancha from between 25p and £1,250 per spin.

The first thing you’ll notice as the reels spin is that the lower value symbols can appear stacked 2 high – they may not offer the biggest prizes but the playing cards and shield and helmet symbols can still deliver decent amounts.

The likeliest way to getting hold of some of the riches of Don Quixote comes via the Free Games feature which is triggered when you land 3or more of the scatter (the book) anywhere on the reels – here you’ll be awarded 10 free spins.

There are some extra goodies on offer to sweeten the feature too – the windmill wild will be frozen in position in the middle of reel 3 for the duration of the feature. You free spins wins will also be boosted by a multiplier which starts at 2x and increases by 1 on every second spin. Any win on the final 2 spins will receive a 6x multiplier rocket.

Visually, The Riches of Don Quixote is very tastefully done – set against a backdrop of the beautiful Spanish plains, the reels include the aforementioned playing cards, shield and helmet alongside Dulcino, trusty squire Sancho Panza and Don Quixote himself.

The bearded knight is the game’s top paying standard symbol, awarding up to 1,000 coins. The windmill wild is the best paying symbol overall – land 5 in a payline for a 3,000-coin haul. The action plays out to a gentle, classical guitar soundtrack. Look out for some silky animations that accompany winning spins too. It’s all rather lovely.

On the variance scale, The Riches of Don Quixote sits in the medium range offering a balance of payouts. If you’ve never read Don Quixote fear not – the slot version of the classic book is a fine adaptation. It looks and sound terrific and offers plenty of gameplay via the free spins round where the sticky wild and expanding multiplier can make a big impact. As literary adaptations go, they don’t come much better than this.
