The lifestyles of the rich and privileged have long been a reference point for online slots developers. Scandinavian-based slot developer NetEnt perhaps did this best with their millionaire-maker Mega Fortune slot but lots of other developers have also tried to reach the same heights but failed with other slots.
Slot developer Microgaming is the latest developer to have a crack at it and first impressions are not great. The graphics make it seem like Mega Fortune after a session on crystal meth. The sleekness from other Microgaming titles just is not there and this slot feels like it was released back in the halcyon days of 1990 for the archaic computer Commodore 64.
On the Reels…
High Society has all the stereotypical symbols from a slot that focuses on the wealthy. This 5 reel, 25 pay-line has reels filled with bars of gold, bars of silver, private jets, diamond rings, private yachts, expensive cars, Rolex watches and bags of money.
Super Wild Reels vs Super Multipliers
The Scatters are represented by the 100 Euro bill symbol and these are the key to triggering the free spins bonus round if you hit three or more of them across the reels simultaneously. You then have the chance to choose which type of free spins bonus round you play. There is the Super Wild Reels Bonus or the Super Multiplier Bonus.
Earn up to 20 Free Spins with Super Wild Reels
If you select the Super Wild Reels Bonus then you will be awarded with up to 20 free spins. On each free spin, reels 2, 3 or 4 will randomly turn entirely Wild. If the 100 Euro Scatter appears on reels 1 or 5 then the reel it lands on will also turn completely Wild. If the 100 Euro Scatter appears on reels 1 and 5 at the same time then both reels will turn entirely Wild.
Win up to a 10x Multiplier with Super Multiplier
If you decide to opt for the Super Multiplier Bonus then you will be awarded with a set 10 free spins. However, the number of Scatters you hit to trigger the free spins bonus round will decide what multiplier you are rewarded with up to a 10x multiplier value up for grabs during the free spins. If you hit the 100 Euro Scatters on reels 1 or 5 then your multiplier value will increase. However, if you hit the 100 Euro Scatters on reels 1 and 5 at the same time then you will win an additional 10 free spins.
High Society is a slot that feels a bit let down by the poor graphics. The actual gameplay is pretty exciting and it’s easy to see the similarities between this slot and the recently released Girls with Guns – Frozen Dawn by Microgaming because of the two separate features available in the free spins bonus round. At the start of this review, I will admit, I wasn’t optimistic about this slot but it turns out that it isn’t too bad to play. I still think it is a poor man’s Mega Fortune but that’s because it doesn’t have the progressive jackpot to back it up. You could find yourself playing this slot more than you originally planned.
