Lovers of luxury will enjoy developer Microgaming’s celebration of the finer things in life, or the finer reels of life, as this slot is named.
A 5 reel slot, it comes with the leading developer’s customary 243 ways to win format and a set of graphics that looks like they’ve been plucked from a cognac ad circa 1985. I’m sure that if Microgaming could do soft-focus, they would have done.
That’s not to say the slot is tacky – it’s just been designed with a very certain target market. Amid the velvet purple hues, gold trim and fancy fonts we get plenty of photo-realistic symbols: cigars, glasses of champagne, choccies, diamonds, wine and cheese, whiskey and an after-dinner coffee – with this slot, Ambassador, you are truly spoiling us.
Where The Finer Reels In Life triumphs is in its bonuses – classy whichever way you look at them. And the bonuses are triggered by two Wilds.
First up is the regular Wild symbol, which substituted by every symbol other than the Scattered Bonus star. Every win is doubled whenever it forms a winning combo. That’s not all: there is a second Wild in the game, the Wild Celebration – which triggers at random during a game. When it does up to five reels are turned Wild, meaning there’s more chance to win huge.
Get three or more gold star Bonus Scatters, however, and you’ll activate the game’s big free spins bonus round. Four different features are on offer, winning you more spins. The more you play, the more features will be unlocked. The coffee & chocolate feature awards 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier, for example, while the Champagne and Diamonds feature awards 25 free spins with Microgaming’s exclusive Rolling Reels.
If you’ve played another high-class Microgaming offering, Playboy, you’ll know all about the features, as the escalating bonuses and exclusive features can be found there too. That slot has betting starting at $0.30 and an air of class, so fans of The Finer Reels… will find much to enjoy there. NetEnt’s luxury-themed slot, Mega Fortune, is another slot fans of this will warm to, perhaps over a nice glass of cognac.
