Rising Rewards Slot Review 2024

Destination: Vegas. Where the party never stops, where things that go on there stay there, and where a multitude of game providers have whisked us for a spot of vintage slot fun.

One of the latest aiming to capture the glitz and glamour of Sin City on the reels is Triple Edge Studios via their richly colourful October 2023 release Rising Rewards, where the only way for wins, is up!

As a slot modeled on the ubiquitous one-armed bandits that line the world-famous neon strip, it’s no surprise to find Rising Rewards dressed in vivid splashes of purple, red, gold, and yellow, coming across as either classy or garish, depending on your outlook and how you feel about America’s adult playground.

Either way, the game enjoys a certain gloss, slickly produced while suitably filled to the rafters with classic fruity-inspired motifs.

Rising Rewards Base Game

Rising Rewards Base Game and Features

Though its colour scheme is unmistakably Vegas, Rising Rewards’ gaming matrix throws something of a curveball. Play goes down across an unconventional 3-4-5-3-4 reel setup supplying a total of 720 win ways. In another unexpected twist, wins pay from left to right and vice versa, with variance on the high side.

Paying between 0.8x and 1.2x the bet for winning combinations 6 symbols in size are the game’s low-payers, represented by a green clover, a blue diamond, a purple heart, and a red heart. At the opposite end of the spectrum, we find a green chip, a golden bell, a gold bar and a red number 7 worth up to 8x the stake.

Emblazoned with ‘WILD’ is the game’s Wild Diamond symbol with the power to pull wins together by replacing all regular symbols when it appears on the 3 middle reels.

Jackpot Wheel

Step up to the game’s multi-segment Jackpot Wheel situated to the left of the reels once you land 1 or more Jackpot Trigger Symbols in either the base game or Free Spins. The prizes you stand to win are then displayed above each reel, and landing an additional Jackpot Trigger Symbol boosts that reel’s value by 0.5 times your current wager.

Each jackpot has its own seed level – ie. the bare minimum you can expect to win. Once the wheel is spun, one of five prizes is credited, before the jackpots all reset to their respective base amounts.

Here are the potential prizes up for grabs per jackpot, relative to your bet:

  • Mini From 5x to 75x
  • Minor – From 10x to 100x
  • Major – From 50x to 250x
  • Mega – From 200x to 1,000x
  • Ultra – From 1,000x to 5,000x

Free Spins Multiplier Meter

Displayed in the upper right corner is a Free Spins Multiplier Meter, whose value is augmented by 0.5x at a time by landing one scatter apiece on 4 separate reels, rising as high as 10x. Although players are tasked with piling on values in the base game, it’s only in Free Spins where the meter’s value can be realized, resetting back to 1x once the jackpot has been awarded.

Rising Rewards Wheel Bonus

Rising Rewards Free Spins

Spell out the word BONUS by landing each letter on consecutive reels to earn 6 Free Spins, with each triggering scatter contributing to either 1 extra spin or a 1x boost to the global multiplier.

Maxing out at 15x, the global multiplier is applied to any line wins achieved during the round, while retriggers are up for grabs on every spin bar the very last by landing additional scatters.

Rising Rewards: Our Verdict

Triple Edge Studios are no strangers to the fruit machine/Vegas-style environment, having gotten all bling previously with the jester-fronted Fire and Roses Joker.

It’s no coincidence that both share similar features, governed by an identical math model which means a windfall equal to 5,000x the bet headed your way should you manage to tap either’s max win. For the record, that number is fairly consistent with the raft of similarly-themed titles available on the market.

Needless to say, on the surface, this title resembles thousands of others vying for digital casino shelf space, and it’s hard to imagine what would draw a punter’s eyes to Rising Rewards’ thumbnail over the next old-school offering. A tasty jackpot, perhaps?

Once fired up, though, there exist aberrations from the standard fruit machine blueprint waiting to be discovered. For one, the game’s 3-4-5-3-4 reel configuration isn’t something you encounter often, while games paying both ways are almost as rare. 

And so, those down for a spot of jackpot-hunting have another to add to their list, and on a final high note, the graphical presentation and audio choice are both pretty much on point.

In summation, if the thought of yet another vintage-flavored slot chock full of stock fruit machine imagery doesn’t leave you recoiling in horror, then you may be charmed by what Triple Edge Studios has cooked up.
