New Year Riches Slot Review (Play'N Go)
Value for Money
New Year Riches is a pretty simple slot without many bonus features which may appeal to certain players but if you like an abundance of modifiers then this might not be the game for you. However, the free spins bonus does have decent potential when it sets itself up to some high multipliers as the free spins bonus counts down but with its medium level of volatility you might be hard pressed to find any big payouts on your way.
New Year Riches Slot Stats
November 26th 2020
New Year Riches is a medium variance slot which is given 6/10 on the volatility scale. It has 5 reels with 3 rows and 20 paylines whilst bets are the typicla range, starting at 0.2 coins all the way up to 100 coins. You can max out wins at 5,000x your stake, which seems pretty standard for Play’N Go, too. There’s not much in the way of base game modifiers but there is a free spins bonus which shows some decent potential along with it’s respin feature.
New Year Free Spins Bonus
Land 3 Clock Scatter symbols and you will be awarded with the New Year Free Spins bonus. This give you a maximum of 10 free spins, with the Scatter symbols only landing on reels 1, 3 and 5. With every free spin you will hear a countdown from 10 to 1 as you do at New Year but with each spin the multiplier increases by 2x, going up to a respectable 20x for your final spin, when hopefully you can activate the respin feature, which functions as is described below.
You can’t retrigger the free spins but you can activate a respin feature. If you can 1, 2 or 3 more Scatter symbols you will get 2, 4 or 6 respins which will stick on the multiplier value they were activated on. This can be pretty handy and extend the free spins round, hopefully landing late on in the bonus where you have a high valued multiplier. You can’t extend the respins by landing more Scatters during the bonus though.
New Year riches slot is set on the background of a city on New Years Eve, taking an aerial view over the building whilst you can see the starry night sky being lit up with fireworks.
Low paying symbols are playing card suits which range in value from 2x to 2.5x for 5 of a kind.
Premium symbols are all famous landmarks including the Kyoto Temple, Big Ben, The Taj Mahal and The Statue of Liberty which pays the most at 50x for 5 of a kind.
Wild symbols are a bottle of champagne which will substitute for all symbols apart from Scatters. Scatters are represented by Clock Faces striking midnight.
