Overview of Wild Wild Riches slot
Wild Wild Riches is the latest slot from the developers at Pragmatic Play and it is a while since the developers have produced an Irish themed slot however for reason unbeknown to me these Irish slots appear to come in waves. However, if the theory is true you should get ready for a lot of leprechaun laden slots to be released in the same way as drizzle falling over lush, rolling green hills. Now is the time for Pragmatic Play to take the helm and they have risen to the challenge and have added some twists as well as some unusual sights. The setup of the reels is rather unorthodox, and although they may not be brand new as is the true meaning of the rainbow features that feature as you will see. So, if you are ready to take a trip across the Emerald Isle, check what Celtic Capers Wild Wild Riches has going for it.
Theme and Design
Irish themed slots are anything but subtle and this slot is no exception with the 5-reel grid set within the countryside which is framed by a rainbow and covered in the symbols that you would expect to find. The configuration of the reels is 3-3-4-4-4, but the format is not the greatest surprise. In this case there are no leprechauns in this slot even though the slot is based around the gold at the end of the rainbow. There is no need for fans of Irish slots as there are many familiar elements to fill in the space. The soundtrack is pleasant and changes pace dependent on what is happening on the game screen and it captures the jolly spirit of the Irish lands.
Game Play & Statistics
You can play Wild Wild Riches on all devices such as your mobile phone, desktop computer or tablet which gives you the freedom to play wherever and whenever you wish. You can place bets from just 25p per spin up to £125 per spin and with such a good bet range the slot is bound to appeal to all types of players from the inexperienced to the experienced. Pragmatic Play have chosen to go with a highly volatile math model that they advertise as 4.5/5, and although this may put an element of players off the default return to player stands at 96%-96.77% which has a certain universal appeal. There is also a bet variation on offer as you can activate the Ante Bet mode which increases the stake making it more likely that you will activate the games features.
Landing winners in this slot is simple as there are no pay lines and you need to land three or more matching symbols on any row starting from the leftmost reel, and this equates to a massive 576 ways to win. There are 9 symbols, and these begin with the usual playing card suits, clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades. The higher value symbols are more in touch with the Celtic roots and you can expect to come across mushrooms, pipes, horseshoes, harps, and mugs filled with beer. Landing five will see you rewarded with a win that ranges from 0.8x to 8x your stake. The wild in the game is represented by the glistening woven pattern and can only land on your 1st and 2nd reels and can replace any symbols apart from the money or bonus symbols. The wilds also play a big part in activating the bonus features that the slot has to offer.
This slot could not have an Irish theme and then not feature a pot of gold. In this slot there are plenty of gold pots on the reels, but to collect them you do need the wilds, keep reading to see how the Money Collect Bonus works first.
On the bigger three reels the pots of gold coins will make an appearance and display cash values that are equal to 1x to 25x your stake. These symbols are then joined on the 5th reel by the jackpot and multiplier symbols equating to x2, x3 or x5. The jackpot symbol relates to the values that are shown at the side of the game screen. Here you will see the Mini, Major and Mega jackpots with are work 50x, 100x or 500x your stake respectively.
The reason that there are two wilds in the title of this slot will now become clear. To land these goodies you to land a wild on your 1st and 2nd reels as well as the special symbols needing to land on your 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels. To be awarded the wins relating to the pots or special symbols must be on adjacent reels or there is no win. Next are the free spins which increase your chance of activating the Money Collect Bonus. This only starts when you land the wilds on your 1st and 2nd reels and the bonus symbol on your 3rd reel. The reward for this is 10 free spins with extra wilds and pots of gold being added to your reels. On the plus side the free spins can be reactivated with no limits.
Technically you can increase your chance to land the features via the Ante Bet option. This works by you increasing your base bet by 20% and more wilds are added to your 1st and 2nd reels, and the developers claim that this will double you chances of the features appearing.
From my point of view the strangest thing about this slot is that there are no leprechauns anywhere to be seen. Apart from this there is an array of Celtic imagery and you will find that you are never in doubt about the theme or type of the slot even though it is without leprechauns. The one new element in the slot is the Ante Bet option which is not as effective as I hoped that it would be. When I tested the slot the extra stake cost did not produce any real changes to the frequency of the features in the way I thought it would. The team at Pragmatic Play claim that there are wins of 4,600x your stake and for this reason 20% extra to double your win chances seems a good bargain.
When compared to other slots in this genre Wild Wild Riches does stand out to some degree. The features blend well with the rest of the slot and brings the pots of gold myth in a logical way. Even better still is that you do not need to be a fan of Irish slots to enjoy the game play on offer.
