Wild Wild Riches Megaways Review
The original Wild Wild Riches slot told a familiar Irish fairytale and showcased the power of the 'luck of the Irish'. Over three years later, Pragmatic Play is trying to do the same thing again with a sequel called Wild Wild Riches Megaways.
As the name suggests, the Megaways mechanic is in full swing in this Irish slot adding in up to 117,649 ways to win. The charm of the original returns but with added fixed jackpots and even bigger multipliers in the money collect feature. If you found yourself getting bored with the original and are looking for something more exciting, then Wild Wild Riches Megaways could be the next slot for you.
If you've played the original, then you may be having deja vu with the visuals. The same green background filled with flowers, rainbows and pots of gold returns but a little more enhanced. There are some extra details such as additional flowers but nothing too noteworthy.
All the same symbols from the original are back but with a little bit of polish. We're a little disappointed that there aren't bigger changes or even a different angle for the background.
Despite this, the overall presentation is still pretty good - just something we've seen before. The music is even identical to the first game with the same old jaunty Irish tune.
Most of the gameplay in this slot is similar to the first game but with improvements. There are now four jackpots instead of three which is good. However, the original jackpots go up to 500x the stake whilst in this slot they only go to 250x the stake.
The main features within this slot are the money collect and free spins. Free spins are triggered by landing wilds on reels 1 and 2 with a bonus on the third reel, whilst money collect is triggered with wilds and money symbols instead.
With the money collect, you can win instant cash prizes, jackpot values and multipliers of up to x5. This is where the real fun begins and we definitely found the most wins during this feature.
The first Wild Wild Riches slot contained a high RTP but a low maximum win. Thankfully, the sequel follows the first part with a decent RTP of 96.02% but adds in a massive maximum win of 10,000x the stake.
We found that the money collect feature delivered the largest wins and this is where the maximum win will occur. However, with there being no limit on how many free spins you can retrigger, we expect the win can be achieved in that feature as well.
As for the volatility, this slot keeps it fairly high. Ultimately, this means that wins will be larger but infrequent. We recommend that you have the bankroll to sustain yourself if you intend to play this slot.
Whether you love Irish slots or not, Wild Wild Riches Megaways is certainly worth a spin simply for the features. There is no limit as to how many free spins can be triggered and that is exactly what we like to hear!
In addition to this, there is the money collect feature leading to multipliers and instant jackpots. The original slot was decent enough but Wild Wild Riches Megaways definitely finds its stride and stands strong as a solid online slot that we expect many will love.
