Become a Pokies Champion With WBC Ring of Riches

BGaming only recently launched WBC Ring of Riches into the online casinos world but it has all the hallmarks of being a champion machine.

BGaming and the World Boxing Council (WBC) has come together to bring you WBC Ring of Riches, a new pokie combining gambling and the action-packed sport of boxing. WBC Ring of Riches is available in several Australian online casinos, including Lucky Dreams where you can bag a $4,000 bonus and 300 free spins.

Marina Ostrovtsova is a director at BGaming. Ostrovtsova is delighted to partner with the world-famous WBC.

“BGaming is honoured to be partnering with WBC, the major name in professional boxing. If we take a look back in history, the greatest fights are always accompanied by the casinos’ atmosphere. This is classic. And now, with everyone going digital, this is the perfect time to come up with a new classic. We have been in the industry quite a while now and this is fascinating, yet challenging to introduce sports into a pokie.

WBC Ring of Riches Fundamentals

It is not surprising to learn WBC Ring of Riches takes place at a boxing match. The background is a blurred-out crowd, but you can feel the atmosphere. Various boxing-related items make up the game’s paying symbols.

The visuals are superb but the sounds are better. From thumping rock music to the boxing announcer shouting out the action. BGaming has outdone itself with WBC Ring of Riches.

The base game is on a 5×4 layout, which is slightly different to the usual 5×3 most developers employ. WBC Ring of Riches has 20 win lines, has a medium variance mathematics model, and a disappointing 95.48% RTP. Players tend to stay clear of pokies with RTP less than 96%, which is the industry average.

$0.20 is the least you can bet, while $40 is the maximum. BGaming set the maximum payout at 9,200x which is huge for a medium volatility machine. This equates to $1,840 at min-stakes and $368,000 at max-stakes.

What Are WBC Ring of Riches Symbols

BGaming has done a good job incorporating boxing into its latest online poker machine. Royals, tens through aces, make up the lowest value symbols. They pay between 2x and 30x for matching three or five.

Bells, a ring girl, dollar signs, and tickets make up the medium-value symbols. Match three, four, or five, for payouts of 5x, 20x, and 60x. The championship belt, trophy, and the boxer are the symbols you want to hit. The boxer pays out 1x for matching just two, but 200x if you manage to land five.

Symbol Match 2 3 4 5
Boxer 1x 20x 50x 200x
Belt & Trophy 5x 25x 75x
Bell, Ring Girl, Dollars, Tickets 5x 20x 60x
Aces 5x 10x 30x
Tens through Kings 2x 10x 30x

A boxing ring acts as the game’s scatter; three are required to trigger free spins.

There is a wild, too. It substitutes for all symbols, except the scatter, and pays between 1x and 200x. Finally, look out for the boxing gloves that clash together. These activate the wild frame, more on that soon.

What Are The Game’s Bonuses and Features?

WBC Ring of Riches has a couple of cool features that ramp up the excitement. Any boxing gloves that land create a golden wild frame. This stays sticky for ten spins before each turns to a wild after your tenth spin. Landing a boxing glove in a wild frame increases the multiplier by 1x up to 10x.

The wild frame feature all but guarantees you a decent win every ten spins.

Landing three scatters anywhere on the board grants you eight free spins. Wilds remain sticky through the free spins, leading to potentially large wins. Sadly, the free spins cannot be re-triggered.


You do not need to enjoy boxing to have a great time with WBC Ring of Riches. The game is excellent in its own right. The house edge is a little on the high side but the variance is set perfectly. Then there is the value-packed feature that awards wins every ten spins, keeping your bankroll topped up. Include a 9,200x maximum win and you have all the ingredients for a smash hit.
