Ricky Riches Booster Reel – what you need to know!
This is a slot which manages to pack a lot of action into a relatively simple format – and we like it!
There are relatively few symbols. High symbols are a blue diamond, a 7, a BAR, a cherry and a clover. Low symbols are card values: J, Q, K, and A. There is a wild (which helpfully is labelled “WILD”) and a Scatter symbol that can trigger a free spins bonus game (helpfully labelled “FREE SPINS”).
So far, Ricky Riches Booster Reel is following a standard slot format, but with each spin randomly appearing boosters can appear and this really amps up the fun.
During the base game up to three features can appear at a time. The types of features are Random Wilds, a Wild Reel, a x5 symbol multiplier (which only take effect if that particular symbol is part of a win), and a win multiplier that ranges from 2x to 7x.
Features do not appear with every spin, but they do appear fairly regularly, and two features appearing on a single spin is not uncommon. Seeing the features cycle in and out makes for a really engaging playing experience that we really enjoyed.
Players have the option to toggle a “Free Spins Booster” button which appears on the top right of the playing area. When on, bets are increased (this is referred to as a “buy in”) but if a player wins a free spins bonus game with the booster on, a FOURTH feature can also appear during the free spins game.
Did someone say Free Spins game?
Players can win a bonus game by landing three FREE SPINS scatter symbols on a base game spin. At this point, the fast-paced play of Ricky Riches Booster Reel steps up a notch!
Before the spins begin players are asked to choose a card from a screen display. The number of spins is determined by the number on the upturned card.
A second card is then chosen which tells the number of guaranteed features on every spin (between 1-4). Guaranteed features is a nice touch!
If the free spins game has the bonus fourth feature option, the free spins get a bit bonkers (but in a good way), with multiple features piling on top of each other and generally turning most spins into a serious chance to win big.
Why we love Ricky Riches Booster Reel
Game designers are twisting themselves into knots these days trying to come up dramatic innovations, but STHLM Gaming have cleverly made a really exciting game with just a simple twist on a well-known format. The bonus reel is genuinely fun, especially as features appear on it so frequently.
We also like the theme of this game. Roaring 20s games have been done before, but sometimes they can seem a bit like a museum piece. Ricky Riches captures the fun excess of the Gilded Age without being overly fussy.
Top marks for STLHM Gaming. This slot is a winner!
