Life of Riches slot from Microgaming

Life of Riches slot from Microgaming
What drives people to gamble? Some might call it a hobby; others might call it an addiction. This might not be the right place and time to pretend we are psychiatrists or genius philosophers. Let’s just agree we are all in it for the bonanza, which will make all our dreams come true, no matter how outlandish they might be. Microgaming taps right into that desire and dangles symbols of the high life in front of our eyes. A shiny yet, fast car, a giant yacht, and lots of beautiful women. It seems that this particular slot is mainly targeting the male players, but that shouldn’t deter the ladies from giving it a spin or two. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

Life of Riches slot machine is built with Medium Volatility and comes with a sufficient RTP of 96.1%, plus:

  • - stacked high-value symbol (Casino dealer);
  • - stacked wilds - doubling your wins, and
  • - Free Spins where you’ll also see all your wins doubled and when a Wild participates, even quadrupled.

Add the maximum win of 120 000 coins (8000x the total bet via max stake), and you have enough to compel you to try this promising slot.

Check it out for free in the DEMO version on our page. No registration is required.

Personal testers’ opinion

This is a fairly standard game, and in the rating of slots for wagering, it’s also middle-of-the-road: 4.59 out of 10, so we wouldn’t recommend it for completing the bonus requirements. However, there is 1 positive- the chance of getting a hit is 41.26%, which means every 41 of 100 is successful (a performance - much better than many other slots). 83% of the stakes are put aside for payouts in the base game, so no wonder that the biggest win booked during our testing was 405x total bets in the regular spins, while during the Free Spins, the statistical average figure we received was around 31x. So we can only leave undecided pointer - uncommitted to neither for nor against playing with real funds.

Life of Riches slot machine is a reskin of some other Microgaming slots, Hearts and Tarts (2011), to name just one.

It is unimaginable how game developers with their big budgets and 'brainiac' /champion teams keep on doing the same stunt when the disadvantages are always much greater number than anything close to a good act/good business. Didn't they cut enough corners already (quality-wise and ingenuity-wise)?
It seems they went too far by letting: Abundance win over Perfection and Reskinning to win over Originality!
