In terms of the design and theme, it s nice but not overly jaw-dropping. We like the grid and how it seems to have a glowy portal sort of feel on the bottom and top rows, kind of like the transporter in Star Trek.

What really determines a player s success with a game is also the features and mechanics.


Ascension: Rise to Riches is heavily steeped in the Egyptian theme, which is why it s no surprise that a scarab beetle serves as the wild. As with most slot games, the scarab wild can substitute other symbols. The wild also has other functions, such as forming combos that can pay out to 125x your bet!

Next up is the scatter, which can activate the Epic Strike jackpot. This is a feature that Microgaming has taken a liking to recently. You can see the jackpot amounts in Ascension: Rise to Riches on the left-hand side of the screen. The amount that you get will depend on how many Osiris scatters you land.
