We recently announced that Old Skool Studios have started working on Ascension Rise To Riches and today we finally got our hands on the slot ahead of its 20/09/2021 release date. The game will launch with an RTP of 96.24% a max win of 2,000x and is described as having low volatility. Here we will take a look at this Egyptian themed slot providing first look pictures and videos before giving our overall Genius Gambling Review and Rating.
Set across 5x3 reels the game hosts low paying symbols, depicted in keeping with the slots overall Egyptian theme, as ankhs, tablets and statues with the highest paying symbol being characterised as Osiris. The game is also home to a wild scarab symbol which will substitute all symbols except the free spins scatter aiding the player in unlocking winning lines. The previously mentioned Osiris symbol works slightly different to the other symbols as landing three or more of them will award a cash prize. Landing 9 in total will unlock the games max win of 2,000x and it is these the the slot is predominantly based around.
Unlocked by landing three free spin symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 the player will be first awarded a bonus wheel that will choose the amount of free spins won followed by the multiplier active in these free spins. the maximum amount of spins is set at 30 with the multiplier being set at a x3. The free spins can also be retriggered by again landing an additional 3 free spin symbols with the amount of spins awarded being equal to the initial trigger when entering the round. Osiris symbols win will not be multiplied by free spins multiplier.
Genius Gambling Review
Have you played 9 masks of fire before? or 9 pots of gold? or even coin bash? There are countless variations of this formula at this point but what Old Skool Studios do offer is a polished and visually upgraded version of this tried and tested slot genre of games. Ascension Rise To Riches sets itself apart from its competition with its arguably low max win of 2,000x and low volatility meaning this version of the genre will give more frequent wins than most but they will not pay as highly. Looking at the slot in a self contained bubble its fun and relatively easy to get a bonus or multiple Osiris symbols to land. However at this point the genre has seen every variation, upgrade, new twist and Ascension Rise To Riches unfortunately hasn't managed to define itself too strongly from some of the more widely known slot releases it is a reskin of. Therefore we award Ascension Rise To Riches Slot By Old Skool Studios our Genius Gambling Rating of 5 out of 10! The slot isn't bad and is worth a couple of your spins but there is nothing new or exciting about it.
