Always Look at the Bright Side of Life
Life of Riches has a simple and classy universe, where the reels and command bar underneath them are supported by a dark red background. The colourful and semi-realistic reel symbols are the main visual feature of the game, given that the background does not offer anything specific to look at.
This sort of minimalism could have worked against many other games, but in Life of Riches it does give off a certain sophisticated feel that matches the idea behind the game very nicely. Microgaming does know how to design great slots, and sometimes less is simply more – at least in our opinion.
Living It Up
Life of Riches is a 5-reel slot game with 30 fixed paylines and very easy rules to follow. Click on the plus and minus buttons under the reels to bet from 0.30 to 15 credits per turn, with the possibility to spin the reels manually or to engage the autoplay game mode to save time and use the same wager over and over again. Life of Riches does not feature and gamble game so each win on the reels is final, and you will have no choice but to pocket them immediately.
The game’s medium variability and slightly above average RTP makes is quite dynamic and gives players a chance to score big wins at any time. The paytable is an homage to the jet-set lifestyle, with beautiful, well-dressed people having fun at the casino, sailing on luxurious yachts, playing gold, flying around the world on a private jet, and so on. You can pocket up to 1000 credits in the base game, and that is only the beginning.
Ambitious and Hard Work Are Essential
The Life of Riches logo is the wild card of the game, and as such you can simply use it to replace the regular symbols and style score winning combinations. Wild combos can also unlock some surprise rewards, so try to keep an eye on them at all times during the game.
The jet symbol is a scatter, so you can forget about paylines as far as it is concerned. Scatters award both cash prizes and a bonus round of 10 free spins, with doubled payouts. Wilds appeared stacked over entire reels during the free games and you may be able to extend the duration of the free spin round by finding more scatters on the reels.
Conclusion: a Great Slot Game That Could Have Been Excellent
Life of Riches is a high-quality slot game with good graphics and very smooth animations. The chances to win big are very decent, and we had fun testing the different bonus features offered in the game. That being said, we also felt like Microgaming could have gone even further and included more exciting features such as a progressive jackpot perhaps, and especially a separated bonus round with a VIP-themed challenged.
Microgaming has created a lot of impressive slots such as Tarzan, just to name one, and we feel that Life of Riches could have been even better. The game is still very fun to play and definitely worth a try if you want to see what life on top of the social food chain feels like.
