New Year Riches slot by Play'n Go at least takes away from the ubiquitous Christmas theme for once. We have an aerial city view behind the reels, jaunty music and famous landmarks from world cities such as Big Ben and the Taj Mahal. Play'n Go already gave us a Chinese New Year slot which wasn't bad in all fairness, and they've made other celebratory slots like Fodselsdagen and the pretty dire Merry Xmas slot. So can our bankroll enter the New Year on a high or will it suffer from the winter blues?
We have a pretty straightforward game in New Year Riches slot. There are 20 fixed pay lines, single symbols and no random modifiers. the 5-of-a-kind pays are Statue of Liberty 50x, Big Ben 25x, Pagoda 15x, Taj Mahal 10x, St Basils 5x with four card suits paying either 2.5 or 2x for a full line. Champagne Wilds appear on all reels and are 250x for a line of five and finally Clock scatters appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. That's all.
These are simple too with 10 free spins granted for the 3 scatters on the odd reels. You begin at 2x multiplier and this rises by 2x per spin to finish the 10 spins at 20x. No retriggers, but if you see a single Clock scatter land, you get 2 re-spins staying on that multiplier. They tell us 5000x is possible, so that must mean landing a line of 5 Wilds at 250x on your final 20x spin. Good luck doing that.
New Year Riches slot has a decent 96.48% RTP but can be lower at your casino, so always check the game sheet! The sounds, graphics and animations are average at best and this seems to be a simple stocking filler game. You can land the odd lucky line in the base game but you really want the bonus frequently to stand a chance here, that seldom pays over 50x bet from what I saw although as said, there is the potential for some big hits. In reality you are playing hundreds of spins which after all whittle down to just 2 or 3 which occur at the end of free spins with the high multiplier. I doubt you'll be celebrating much on New Year's Eve if you play this for too long...
