Free Wings of Riches slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Wings of Riches slot by Netent takes us yet again into the colourful fantasy world of the fairy. No, it's not themed like Microgaming's Village People slot but has graphics similar to those featured in IGT's 100 Ladies slot or even Netent's own Fairytale Legends Little Red Riding Hood game. Here there is a backdrop of orchids and lilies for our transparent reels and childish cartoon fantasy music as we play and likewise when wins appear. All very glossy and gentle thus far, but will these wings be flying their riches over our bankroll or will it be a case of a wing and a prayer?
There are 20 fixed pay lines on Wings of Riches slot over the usual 5 reels of 3 rows apiece. Symbols appear singly and they pay surprisingly well considering the innocuous appearance. The 5-of-a-kinds are Red Fairy 75x bet, Yellow 60x, Green 35x, Blue 25x, Ladybird 7.5x, Gold Beetle 6.25x, Blue Beetle 5x with Red, Yellow and Blue Flowers at 3.75, 2.5 and 1.25x respectively. The Wild Dandelion appears singly on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will disperse its seeds into the wind as a spreading Wild transforming 2 to 4 nearby symbols as it does. The final symbol is the Dragonfly scatter appearing on all reels to trigger our bonus for 3 or more in view.
Having secure 3 or more Dragonfly scatters we get 10 free games. these can be retriggered and just 2 more scatters adds 5 spins to our remaining bonus. You are guaranteed at least one Spreading Dandelion Wild per spin too and there is a multiplier tile on reel 5. Should this appear then your multiplier from that point on increases to 2x, and you can get it up to a maximum of 5x before it vanishes from the grid. This means the bonus has a big win potential belying the appearance, especially if you hit a few lines of the top symbol on a 5x spin!
Wings of Riches slot has a decent mechanic and a good 96.63% RTP to boot. It's just a shame about the juvenile appearance and subject matter here, which for some inexplicable reason Netent still insist upon using for every other slot they release. The free games have some potential here as said above and if you land 2 or 3 of the Spreading Wilds in the base game some good mid-range wins can occur. That may be the case, but the big yield bonus rounds are rare unless you see an increase in multiplier early on and then a few 2-scatter retriggers. You may not be winging your way to a fortune here, but you could well see a bit of lift from them...
