The Richest Slots
Riches certainly do appear in many ways during this game. The Richest is a slightly clunky title - we want to add another word to the end of it - but aside from that, it's certainly not a clunky slot.
Expect a lot of gold in this game in terms of color, and some neat touches that suggest we're visiting somewhere specific. We'll share more on that as we go through our review, but let's begin by identifying where this game comes from.
Developer details for starters
Dragon Gaming is behind this game, so you can expect the usual top-quality appearance and features to appear here.
They grant access to a demo version
This works just like the real game, so you can safely play without making any real bets on it to begin with. It's surely the best way to see what you make of it first.
Riches are the theme here
The title said it all really, and you will find several people included in the game who clearly are the richest of them all.
What about the design?
The background seems to put us in an Asian city, with searchlights in the sky and a river in front with a boat going past. The reels are placed over the top of all this, and there are some impressive icons landing on those.
How to play The Richest slot game
This is a familiar format, with five reels and three rows of icons to look at as you play. There are four jackpots to the left of those reels, moving up in size, but they appear to be fixed rather than progressive.
The game includes a wild stack of cash with WILD on the symbol. This subs for everything apart from the bonus symbol, and that also carries the relevant label. It's similarly themed to the wild, but it shows a bag of cash sitting on some gold bars instead.
What about the paylines?
There are 243 ways to find some prizes as you play this game.
How to bet on the game
You can begin with a bet of 20 cents to cover all those ways to find prizes. However, other values are on offer as well, maxing out at $40 per spin.
Hit the burger icon to find the paytable
Slot games tend to offer their paytable link underneath the game, but this time we found the link in the top right of the screen. Look for the three white lines as the burger icon and you can go through to it from there.
Look out for the bonus jackpot game
You need to find some wild symbols to trigger this round, but we think it could be tricky given what's at stake. The game features a suitcase above the reels, and all the wilds that appear go inside it. The suitcase pops open once you have filled it, and that's when a game will begin that leads to one of the four available jackpots.
This is a familiar one if you've seen other slots with four jackpots involved. This time, you get 12 cards face down. There are four designs, each linking to a jackpot. Find three matching ones and that's the jackpot you'll receive. You cannot collect wilds while playing the free spin round.
Free spins come from the bonus sack of cash
Find three of those and you'll receive 10 free spins plus a scatter prize. More triggering scatters will grant you a bigger scatter prize, but the same set of 10 spins will be awarded in each case. There are no multipliers for these spins.
Be aware that The Richest has a low RTP value
Most experts agree on a minimum value of 96% - so this one presenting us with a much lower percentage of 94% is disappointing.
Our rating: Is The Richest slot worth a try?
The 94% RTP value is the standout figure here, and it does drop our score a bit. Everything inside the game is familiar - at least it will be to anyone who has played a few slots in their time. We think this warrants a 7/10 score.
Does the game offer some reasonable prizes?
The Grand Jackpot is the highest prize available, confirmed as 5,000x your bet if you manage to get through to the bonus round and match three cards relating to that prize. It's a tall order for sure.
Will you try this game first?
You should, as you can see whether it offers enough to make it worth trying a few real spins.
Make sure you work out your budget before you switch to the real game
This should help you understand how many spins you'll receive for the dollars you're going to play with.
