Where to play The Riches of Don Quixote slot game
The Riches of Don Quixote follows the adventures of a Spanish nobility named Mr. Alonso Quixada, who attempts to bring justice to the world, under the alias Don Quixote de la Mancha, by reigniting chivalry and looking to right all the world’s wrongs.
The story is regarded as one of the most influential and important works of literature – written in 1605, it had a major impact on Western literature, and has been cited in numerous writings, such as The Three Musketeers (1844) and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884).
The game itself, which boasts a soothing background musical track, manages to recapture the grandeur of the Spanish Golden Age (approximately 1492 to 1659), where art and literature flourished.

The wild symbol, which is the windmill, also offers huge payouts with just two topping up your bank account. Additionally, it will substitute for any other symbol – except the scatter symbol – in order to complete a winning combination.
The Don Quixote book is the scatter symbol and also offers a payout with a minimum of two symbols appearing on an active payline. Like many of the best online slots, three triggers the Free Spins feature.
Check the paytable in the game for all symbol payouts.
Scatter, stacked and free spins features
Spin three of more Don Quixote book (anywhere across the reels) symbols and you are awarded 10 free spins.
Within the free spins feature (called La Mancha Free Games), you begin with a 2x multiplier which increases with every two free spins (spins three and four boast a 3x multiplier, five and six boast a 4x multiplier, seven and eight boast a 5x multiplier, and nine and 10 boast a 6x multiplier).
Additionally, while in the free spin feature, the wild windmill icon is locked in the middle position on the third reel to increase potential wins.
Six of the symbols in the game (the helmet, shield, and the A, K, Q and J icons) can appear as stacks of two – that is, they can form one long icon covering two reel positions (on any reel) to significantly boost your wins.
Graphics and audio of Don Quixote
Playtech never disappoint when it comes to the graphics of their games. The Don Quixote pokie offers bright animations which have been crafted with attention to even the littlest of details.
The audio features an acoustic guitar which is quite nice to listen to, but at times its over powered by the sound of the reels and wins. Mute the audio in the top right hand corner if you aren’t a fan.
The graphics aren’t as slick as some of the most advanced slots we can play online today, such as Aliens and The Dark Knight Rises, but the game boasts enough bonus features to get our nod of approval. The free spins feature offers some huge rewards, and with Playtech in charge, the quality of the game is impressive.
