ABOUT LIFE OF RICHES
As far as pay lines, reels, and volatility go, it is similar, if not identical, to many Microgaming slots. Some of these are the slots Deck the Halls and Battlestar Galactica, which, although having different themes, are low-to-medium volatility games with 30 pay lines and bonus features like wilds, scatters, and jackpot symbols. If you enjoy the theme and are keeping an eye out for something similar, Diamond Empire is not a bad shout.
Microgaming is undoubtedly one of the most dominant makers of online slots and has been for years. All their games are convenient for both inexperienced and punters who like to play big. The minimum bet per spin for this game is £0.30, while the maximum is £15. The maximum amount you can win playing this game is x8,000 your wager, i.e. £120,000.
THEMES, SYMBOLS AND PAYTABLE
Regarding its design, Life of Riches is somewhat clichéd, featuring corny symbols ranging from commercial airplanes, a stewardess welcoming you aboard a private jet, hot girls in bikinis, a Ferrari, and the Life of Riches logo, which is the ‘wild’ symbol. These types of slots only appeal to a specific type of UK slot players but can still be profitable.
The Life of Riches symbol substitutes all other symbols (save scatters) to raise your prospects of winning and winning big. Any wins you get from the wild symbol come with a 2x multiplier.
The scatter symbol is a plane flying over the ocean, and triggering at least three scatters will unlock the Free Spins bonus. When unlocked, you receive 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Also, during the free spins play, the wild symbol is stacked and comes with a 4x multiplier to any wins from your free spins round.
RTP, VARIANCE AND PAYOUTS
The return to player (RTP) percentage is a number that represents the percent of your wagers the slot will return over time. For instance, because Life of Riches has a pretty high RTP of 96.1%, the game can return a maximum of 96.1% of your wagers. So, if you bet £100, the game may return a maximum of £96 from those wagers. We should note that not every player will get the full benefit of the high RTP, and some may receive a smaller return of their wagered funds.
The top jackpot prize that can be won playing the Life of Riches slot is 8,000 times the amount of your wager. That means the maximum you can win, if you’re lucky enough, is £120,000 if you wager the maximum per-spin bet of £15.
Life of Riches is a medium-to-high volatility game, so you can learn to expect occasional big wins and more frequent smaller wins.
GAMEPLAY AND FEATURES
Life of Riches, while being a somewhat older slot, still functions exceptionally well on both desktop and all mobile devices. The gameplay is easy to understand, and it only takes one go at it and several hundred spins to get the hang of it and learn all the symbols and pay lines.
Aside from the scatters, wilds, and free spins, there aren’t too many fancy features and additions. The game does have an ‘Auto Play’ option next to the ‘Spin’ button, where you can also see your balance and control how much you wager per spin.
LIFE OF RICHES PAYOUTS
The game’s paying combinations are left-to-right, and there are a total of 30 pay lines, i.e. thirty combinations that can trigger a win.
Again, the scatter symbol in this slot is represented by a jet plane flying over the globe.
LIFE OF RICHES – FREE SPINS
There are several symbols and combos that can add to your winnings; the scatters of which are likely the most valuable.
Landing at least three scatter symbols across the five reels, you will automatically unlock 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier on likely wins. You can trigger additional 10 spins during the free spins round if you reveal a stacked wild symbol, increasing your winnings fourfold.
A somewhat outdated slot game, Life of Riches is still worth playing in 2021, knowing you can trigger a big x8,000 multiplier of your wager at any time. Don’t get us wrong, the graphics and sounds are satisfactory, but they aren’t top-shelf. If you want to play a slot with similar features (reels, paylines, etc.), we’d suggest you give IGT’s Da Vinci Diamonds or, perhaps, Pragmatic Play’s Da Vinci’s Treasure a try.
