Happy Riches Slot Review – NetEnt
NetEnt has been one of the top dogs in the casino industry for many years now, thanks to their innovative creations and massive success with their slot releases. The studio is well known for so many classic releases and still shocking us all with new ideas. I recently created a Top 5 NetEnt slot releases article, looking back at the best releases of all time and why they are on this list. It was nice going down memory lane and seeing all that is now forgotten. The most recent new release I have reviewed is ‘Gorilla Kingdom’, which shows off a new slot style and high variance on offer. Next from the studio is something I would say common. Titled ‘Happy Riches’, which is available to play now across all sites.
Happy Riches has an Asian theme style, which is such a saturated pick in the casino industry in recent years. The market is flooded with them and more are being released each year. Visuals are basic, with Chinese inspired building in the background and lanterns in the night sky. Premium symbols are related to the theme, such as koi fish and a waving cat which are popular. Nothing really stands out with these visuals which are such a shame, NetEnt is capable of designing detailed visuals like in past releases.
This game has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 30 set pay lines. Happy Riches is a high variance slot with a set RTP of 96.32% and max win capped at 15,000x. You can bet from £0.30 – £75.
Happy Riches Paytable & Symbols
There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by oranges, jade ornaments, lanterns, koi fish and wavings cats. In addition to these regular symbols is a free spins scatter and dragon wild. The highest paying symbol is the wild, which pays 166x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the free spins scatter. All symbols can appear as a double symbol on the reel set, including wilds and scatters. Double symbols count as 2 single symbols.
Happy Riches Features
Central to this game is the ‘Free Spins‘ feature, triggered by landing 4 or more scatter symbols during one spin. 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 scatters award 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 free spins. All wins during these free spins are tripled, with wilds stacked and symbols still able to appear as doubles. Thie feature is so similar to ‘Flowers’ an older release in 2013 by NetEnt.
Overall, I think this slot is a big disappointment due to the lack of creativity. There are so many similar qualities to older release Flowers, like the double symbols and stacked wilds in the free spins feature. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
