Living the Good Life
Saying that Wags to Riches is a bit of a cliché is definitely a huge understatement, but take it with a pinch of salt and enjoy the glitz and glamour on the way to the next shopping spree. Or to the nail salon. Or the hairdresser. Or all of the above. Twice.
The background of the game is actually just a pink and glittery outline of a modern city, with the reels floating in the sky and framed with gold and pearls.
The command bar and its usual green buttons feel a little out of place in all this, but overall Wags to Riches stays in character all the way through and gives players a rather original universe to enjoy, if not especially beautiful to look at. You can take it as the background of Jet Set Millions from IGT, another slot game that takes you into the very exclusive world of the 1%.
Quick Start on the Reels
Wags to Riches is played on 5 reels with 20 paylines and with an average volatility, which means that you never know when big wins are right around the corner. You can activate paylines and bet from 0.01 to 1 credit on each of them, making the maximum total bet worth 20 credits, which is a little less than we might have liked.
Jump to max bet in one click on the usual shortcut, or speed up the gameplay with the autospin game mode.
Take a look at the paytable of Wags to Riches and you will discover simple but generous winning combinations. The menu contains classic card icons and luxury items such as diamonds, limousines and a big array of bonus symbols that we will get back to in a moment. Note that the maximum reward here corresponds to no less than 10.000 times your current line bet, which is already an insanely large amount of cash.
Many More Ways to Win
Now the real show begins. As promised, Wags to Riches is generous with players when it comes to bonus features. We will start with a classic wild, ready to replace the basic symbols on the reel and to unlock the big x10.000 cash prize as well.
The next special symbol is a free spin scatter, 3 of which appearing on the screen at the same time are enough to take you to an exclusive luxury shop for a serious shopping spree, free of charge. Go crazy, it’s all on the house and you can win up to 200 free games in the process.
Three or more shopping spree scatters will take players to the unique Wags Boutique to spin a new 3×3 set of reels with new symbols to collect and pocket cash prizes in the process. Finally, 3 disco inferno scatters will initiate an exclusive mini game. Spend your evening in the best club in town and make your way across the dance floor to win up to 500 times your current bet.
Investing in Your Future
Wags to Riches plays the humour card and put players in the (expensive) shoes of an actual wag. The result is fun and also extremely generous, if you are willing to keep the reels spinning and bet a few extra credits on them.
Female players might not appreciate the very stereotypical representation of women in Wags to Riches, but the big cash prizes and many bonus features will probably make the pill a lot easier to swallow in the end.
