Rising Royals is an online slot developed by Just For The Win exclusively for Microgaming. The slot, which uses a 5×3 layout with 20 paylines, takes place in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles and the reels are packed with symbols depicting French royals and the traditional playing card letters.

The online slot includes two unique special features which you can discover by reading our Rising Royals review.

How To Play

Before you play, you’ll be required to register and deposit at an online casino offering Rising Royals. Once you’ve done that, you can load up the slot and click the giant spin button to start the game. Alternatively, you can adjust your wager by selecting any of the pre-determined values ranging between 0.10 and 250.00, which we suggest you do so you’re in control of exactly how much you’re spending.

You can also enable the autoplay feature, allowing you to select the number of times you want the reels to automatically spin, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the game as it unfolds in front of you.

Special Features

Rising Royals slot reels

Unlike traditional video slots, Rising Royals does not have a Wild symbol, which normally substitutes for other symbols to help make more winning combinations. Instead, the game utilises its two other unique special features to make gameplay fun and exciting.

Symbol Lock Re-Spin

If any symbol except the playing card letters creates a winning combination, the symbols will lock on the reels and trigger a re-spin. When this happens, any additional symbols that match the winning symbols are also locked.

Following a re-spin, if any more matching symbols land on the reels, these are locked and another re-spin is triggered. With each re-spin, the Symbol Upgrade meter at the side of the screen is filled.

The Symbol Lock Re-Spin feature ends when no additional re-spins are triggered or when all symbols on the screen become locked. Players only receive their winnings for the spin after the Symbol Lock Re-Spin feature has ended.

Symbol Upgrade

When players completely fill the Symbol Upgrade meter, all locked symbols will be upgraded to the next high-paying symbol. However, the highest-paying symbol cannot be upgraded any further.


Rising Royals has been marketed as a lavish and luxurious slot, and while the visuals are stunning and game fun to play, it just doesn’t offer much. The slot’s Symbol Lock Re-Spin and Symbol Upgrade features are great, but the game lacks a Free Spins feature and Wild symbols to make gameplay interesting and to help players win. This is extremely disappointing compared to other modern-day slots and other games by Just For The Win, which are usually packed with various special features.

It’s difficult to make big wins on Rising Royals and because of that, we’d only suggest it to experienced players or someone interested in the theme. But even then we believe they’d quickly get bored of the slot due to the lack of features. Still, if you’d like to try the slot out yourself for a few spins, you can find it over at PlayOJO, Casumo, BWin, 32Red Casino, Royal Panda, Mansion Casino, Hyper Casino, Mr Green, Videoslots, All British Casino, Jackpot Paradise, and Dazzle Casino.
