Live the good life in Life of Riches, a new slot machine by Microgaming that celebrates everything luxurious and glamorous. The 5-reel video slot has 30 paylines, which might suggest that the game is going to pay out wins on a frequent basis. On the contrary, this relatively high volatility slot will make players wait for the wins to be awarded. Just as well, because the highest line bet multiplier in this game is a very decent 4,000x.
While punters are waiting for the big wins to come their way, they will be able to boost their wins with a couple of special bonus features. These include a wilds with x2 wins as well as free spins with x2 wins and x4 wild wins. So, there are plenty of chances to start living your own life of luxury with this Microgaming slot machine.
The lives of the rich and famous are often documented on TV, film and in magazines. But now, slot machine players can catch a glimpse of the good life in Life of Riches. The slot machine by Microgaming just oozes class and sophistication with 5 reels that are filled with some symbols of everyone's dream life of luxury. We're talking about expensive watches and sunglasses, Louis Vuitton bags packed for holidays, 30 foot long yachts, sports cars and private jets. Ushering the players through this wealthy lifestyle are five female characters – a bikini beach babe, a golf instructor, an adrenaline junkie driver, a air hostess and an elegant casino player.
From a visual perspective, this slot machine strikes a fairly good balance between classiness and tackiness. Let's face it, there are some aspects of the good life that could be seen as a bit over the top and gaudy – have you seen the interior décor of Trump Tower? Instead of going full gold and diamond, this online slot keeps it relatively toned down with an elegantly sophisticated rich red background and some relaxingly simple sound effects.
Wealth and fortune doesn't just fall at your feet – that is unless you happen to be a footballer who gets paid a ridiculous amount to kick a ball around every week! Most people who make it to the big time have to rely on a little bit of luck and a whole lot of patience and that applies to this online video slot. That is because, despite having 30 paylines, the game has a fairly high level of volatility. That basically means that punters will need to wait a while before the winning combinations of symbol begin to appear on the reels.
There is an advantage to playing a high variance slot machine such as Life of Riches, and that is the fact that the value of the prizes tend to be higher than other slots online. In fact, spinners of this game can hope to win some base game jackpot prizes worth 4,000x the value of the line bet whenever five matching Life of Riches icons appear on one of the 30 fixed paylines.
One disappointing aspect of the game is the generally low level of betting options. The maximum amount that a player can place on any one bet is 15.00 credits, which means that the biggest possible line bet is just 0.50 credits. With that in mind, the 4,000x jackpot prize doesn't seem quite so attractive.
One way in which punters can boost their winning returns is with one of a range of special bonus elements. First of all, this slot machine offers a wild logo symbol that will not only substitute for any ordinary icon but will multiply the resulting win by 2x. The only icon that cannot be replaced by the wild symbol is the slot machine's scatter – depicted by the jet and globe symbol – which will pay up to 200x the total bet value when five appear in any position.
Players don't need to find five scatters to get a reward since three of them will trigger 10 free spins in which all regular wins are doubled. Not only that but the wild icons will be stacked during the free games feature with wins that are quadrupled. What better way to kick start a life of riches?
Life of Riches is a slot machine that is based on the luxuries of wealth and fortune, giving players every incentive to spin the reels for some high volatility gameplay and some line bet returns worth up to 4,000x.
That said, the game's range of betting options is somewhat underwhelming, limiting punters to some maximum bets of just 15.00 credits. Therefore, high rollers might be better off trying a progressive jackpot slot such as NetEnt's Mega Fortune.
