Life of Riches Slot Review

Microgaming have developed several lifestyles of the rich and famous themed slots before, so there is nothing terribly new about the Life of Riches slot machine in that regard.

This slot focuses a lot on women, so in that sense, there is an original aspect to the game. It certainly makes for a pleasant surprise from the usual playboy types of characters we see in slots with this theme.

Life of Riches offers up a tantalising array of possibilities, despite being limited to a 5-reel, 30-line slot machine game.

Developers

As we’ve said before, Microgaming has attempted this theme before, on numerous occasions. Sometimes they have had a spot of luck, and others time not so much.

The Finer Reels of Life was rather disappointing (even if it did have a bunch of special features), although High Society was a classy slot with a similar theme. Given that lifestyles of the rich and famous themed slots seldom impress, we’re not holding out too much hope for this title.

How to play

Players will find that the wagering menu is dull and boring. It is located below the reel sets as per usual, but it hardly speaks volumes to the theme of the slot. It may not look the part, but it does offer players numerous options in terms of wagers.

Players can adjust all 30 lines in the slot, as well as choose coin denominations which range from $0.01 up to $0.25.

Players can also choose to stake up to 10 coins per line. At its cheapest, this slot is going to set you back only $0.01 per line per spin, whilst at its costliest, it can see you wagering up to $75 per spin.

Features

Wild symbols: Life of Riches contains a wild symbol in the shape of the game’s logo. The logo icon can substitute for all other symbols in the slot, except for the scatter icon.

The fact that any wins which contain wilds will be doubled is most impressive. Wild symbols appear stacked on the reels of this slot, but only during the free spins bonus round.

Scatter symbols: Scatter symbols appear as jet-setting aircraft icons. These symbols can trigger a free spins bonus when 3 or more appear on the reels, whilst you only need 2 or more symbols to bag scattered wins.

Gambling woman symbol: Players will spot a gambling woman located in both the free spins bonus and the base game. She always appears stacked and can bolster your wins as the best-paying standard symbol. Beyond that, she doesn’t do much, which leads one to questions her inclusion as a stacked icon.

Free spins bonus: Players will begin the free spins bonus round with a total of 10 free games under their wing. Players will note that all wins in this feature will be doubled, courtesy of a 2x multiplier. A for those wilds, not only do they appear stacked during this feature, they can also quadruple the value of all winning combinations in which they appear.

Maximum pay-outs

As we’ve said, the stacked woman is the best-paying standard symbol, but her winnings pale in comparison to those you can have with the wild (which is worth 4x as much as that symbol), and the scatter, which is worth 6x more.

Land five scatters on the reels and you could possibly win as much as the 600,000 coins that Microgaming claim is the non-progressive jackpot. We didn’t win that much. Nowhere near in fact.

Summary

Life of Riches is a satisfactory slot. Microgaming have again underwhelmed us with their so-so theme. The features are agreeable, but the developers are hardly breaking any new ground with their free spin, multipliers and wild symbols in this game.
