You won't find this 25-paylines game at most dedicated Microgaming casinos, but is available at some multi-platform casinos, as I later found out. Nope, I have never seen or played this game before, except for the other Roller game, Hot Roller, which is quite a good game to play. I was curious to see if this Royal Roller game would be anything like the Hot Roller game. Well, yes and no. Basically, the game concept and features are the same, but the 'Royal' in this case refers to Royal Flush, the highest win in the game of cards, and this winning combination is used for the logo.
The Wild symbol does not pay anything for itself, but it doubles all wins with it and substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol. Yep, a dumb symbol. The 'Royal Roller' is the Scatter symbol, paying a low 50x the total bet for getting 5 of them, and getting 3 or more of these Scatters trigger 5 Roulette Free Spins. Yep, a lousy 5 free spins that don't have any win multiplier and also cannot be retriggered. Argh! A spin on the Roulette Wheel would determine the number of Wild Reels for each free spin, from 1 up to 4 Wild Reels, all randomly selected of course, from reel 2 to reel 5. Why only 5 free spins with no multiplier, I just cannot reason out. Perhaps it was just to keep the payouts to be moderate, with nothing higher than that. As for the other symbols in the game, the logo pays 1000x, the Chips pay 500x, the Dice pays 250x, the Pool Balls pay 125x, and the rest pay from 100x to 50x, all per line bet for getting 5 of each kind. A very low paytable.
My first impression on this Royal Roller game wasn't good at all. The game doesn't look interesting enough, the graphics are nothing nice but ordinary standard looking, the paytable is very low, giving poor payouts most of the time, and the even Free Spins game couldn't bring me any decent wins at all either. Not only that, it took me just over 200 spins to get that one Free Spins game, but it didn't pay anything good, so I finally just left it to play another game instead. Its 5 free spins offering is simply too boring more me to continue playing the game!
