During America's pioneering days, riverboats used to travel up and down the mighty Mississippi River with passengers who passed the time drinking, carousing and gambling. Riverboat Gambler is your opportunity to experience what things might have been like on one of those historic boats.

How It Works
Riverboat Gambler is a more traditional video slot game featuring 5 reels and 20 lines. The ultimate goal is to win the jackpot by achieving five Riverboat Gambler symbols on any active payline. Along the way, you have the opportunity to accumulate winnings with any number of successful combinations on your active lines. Riverboat Gambler includes wild and scatter symbols.
BETTING AND PAYOUTS
Riverboat Gambler lets you place wagers by using the up and down arrow keys at the left centre of the screen. Up and down arrows on the other side control the number of active paylines that you want to play per spin. The minimum bet is £0.01, the maximum bet is £100. Payouts are determined by the winning combinations and the wager placed on each payline. Standard payouts are no different from what you would find in any other line slot.
Payouts for scatter wins are different. Achieve three or more scatter symbols across the reels and two things happen. First, you will trigger a bonus round with free spins. Second, your bets will be multiplied according to the number of scatter symbols you achieve. Three symbols multiply your award five times, four symbols multiply it 75 times, and five scatter symbols increases your award 500 times. The wild symbol is the game's logo. It substitutes for any other symbol except the scatter symbol. Get five wilds and you win the Riverboat Gambler jackpot!
The game play in Riverboat Gambler could be the easiest we have seen in a long time. There are no complicated paytables to understand, no obtrusive graphics that get in the way, and only a single screen to have to pay attention to. When you are ready to play, just set your wagers and paylines and then click the START button. You might consider using AUTO if you want the game to spin the reels for you.
The AUTO feature lets you determine how many automatic spins you are interested in. The scatter symbol in Riverboat Gambler is the menu. When three or more scatter symbols appear within your reels, they trigger the Free Spins bonus game. Scatter symbols can appear in any position on any real to trigger the Free Spins bonus.
Riverboat Gambler Bonus Features
FREE SPINS BONUS GAME
Triggering the Free Spins bonus game automatically gives you 15 free spins and a multiplier of three. Any winning combinations achieved during the free spins pays out according to the wager on the line that triggered the bonus. However, those winnings are multiplied three times during the bonus game. Free spins can be re-triggered and accumulated throughout the bonus game.
Riverboat Gambler offers you another way to multiply your winnings by way of the Bonus Multiplier feature. This feature is triggered by the gold Riverboat Gambler symbols when they are used to form a winning combination on an active payline. One used symbol doubles the award on that line. Two symbols triples the award, three symbols quadruples it, and four symbols multiply the award five times!
The Bonus Multiplier is such that it makes the Riverboat Gambler symbol so much more important. So keep your eyes on the reels as you spin away. The river is waiting to give up her treasures to anyone lucky enough to place the right wagers at the right time. With enough practice, you could become a riverboat gambler to be reckoned with.
