It is every player’s dream to win the Jackpot, or hit a really huge win in a regular slot, and live happily thereafter. Seeing how the glamorous lives of rich people are constantly broadcast in all forms of media, more so social media, it is not surprising that everyone wants to live that life. microgaming’s “Life of Riches” slot gives players an opportunity to try their luck at the big money and probably live a life of riches provided they manage to win the heart of Lady Luck. Coming from microgaming, one of the biggest names in the industry, Life of Riches will be hard pressed to meet the expectations of the hawk eyed critics and players.
Living large, and winning big
Life of Riches has the standard (and very basic) 5 Reels, all fixed, and 30 paylines. Don’t let the high number of paylines fool you though, big wins in this slot are rare and far in between. Well, the high life aka Life of Riches is not for everyone now, is it? Nonetheless, the slot has a max bet multiplier of 4,000x on the bonus round and possible wins of up to 8,000 the bet amount on a single spin. Basically, it’s a game of two extremes. Either you happen to be extremely lucky and win the jackpot-size amount or you get very unlucky and lose your bet amount, or win next to nothing at best. The good thing is, you don’t have to cough out a lot of money to play the game, which is playable starting from only 30p a spin. The maximum bet is also set quite low (£15) for a slot with such grand promises. But then again, not everything in life makes sense.
Granted, Life of Riches has that sleek look and crisp graphics that make you feel like you are in some exclusive players club. If you don’t get to win big and actually live the glamorous life, you will at least have lived a virtual one, albeit for a few minutes, or hours. As it were, the game’s symbols represent the various aspects of a rich person’s life and which the rest of us can only dream of having. Expensive watches, designer sunglasses, private jets, yachts and expensive cars are some of the symbols that characterize this game and appear on the reels at varying times. And what’s money and luxury without beautiful women? The other batch of symbols consists of 5 glamorous women representing different professions and from different walks of life. Pretty sexist, in my opinion but the casino culture is not known for being moral.

How the wins are structured
Basically, despite the hype, Life of Riches is not the type of game that will make you rich in one stroke. It’s just a basic slot – not a jackpot – and even if it were, it would still take you some time to hit it big. What more, the 30 paylines (way to many) increase the volatility of the game, which coupled with the maximum bet of 15 credits, gives
That said, the slot offers some crazy potential wins, made even bigger by the 30 paylines. First off, the base game contains some stacked symbols and wilds that will double your earnings (2X). Also, forget the 5 Reels, only 3 scatters need to appear on the reels to unlock the free spins feature, which gives you 10 spins with a guaranteed 2X Multiplier on every win. Another unique thing about the slot is that a 4X Multiplier is awarded when similar wild icons appear simultaneously on the reels.
Dreams are free
Frankly speaking, Life of Riches is a great game but not exactly the type you want to play every day. For one, the wins are not that big – the paylines are just too many and the maximum bet set too low. As a matter of fact, your day job will make you rich faster than this game ever will.
Nonetheless, there are a few bright spots in the game including the sleek graphics, cool icons and smooth game play that will definitely increase your urge to become stupid rich. If dreaming is free, Life of Riches provides the bed. Go figure.
