Some game titles are a little bit confusing and with this one, before you see it, it’s difficult to work out just what to expect. This Ainsworth online slot takes us into the jungle though some of the animals we see aren’t going to be on your shortlist. As for the rich part of the title, well hopefully the free spins and Rich ‘n’ Wild feature will do wonders for your account balance.
This low to medium variance slot has five reels, three rows of symbols and a total of 30 pay-lines. Those 30 will hopefully be full of wins for you and that’s how many you will be playing on each spin of the reels as it’s a fixed amount. The minimum cost of playing the slot Is just 0.30 which is handy if you have a low limit but the maximum wager is a hefty 3000. Just ensure you won’t have any financial worries if you lose the amounts you gamble.
Onto the symbols in the ‘Rich ‘n’ Wild’ video slot and they are a bit surprising and a tad disappointing to be fair. In terms of animals and I’m no Sir David Attenborough here, but I was a bit surprised to see an owl in the jungle alongside a baboon and a black leopard or something resembling one. There are some plants too and then the Nine to Ace playing card symbols that provide the lowest wins in this slot. A couple less of those and some more animals would have been better.
It’s the Chichen Itza which is a temple rather than a foreign dish that is the wild symbol in this jungle themed slot. In the base game, it substitutes for everything apart from the colourful looking shield that is the scatter in this game. It only appears on the third, fourth and fifth reels but will hopefully bring players some big wins and that’s likely as it can also be a stacked wild. The scatter symbol can see players win 30 times their stake if five appear anywhere on the reels and can also trigger the free spins round.
Three scatters anywhere on the reels wins you 12 free spins and it’s all change on the reels. There’s an addition to the reels with the ‘Rich ‘n’ Wild’ logo suddenly appearing but only on the first and fifth reels. There are different values for the winning combinations during the bonus round. They are a bit lower than in the base game but hopefully the number of wins you get will rise and there are lots of coins to be won.
The scatter symbol only appears on the first and fifth reels during the free spins and the wild is now on the second, third and fourth and can’t sub for the scatter or the ‘Rich ‘n’ Wild’ logo. If the scatter does appear on both the first and fifth reels then that wins you three more spins you don’t have to pay for.
Now onto the importance of the game logo during the free spins round. If it appears on both the first and fifth reels then that triggers the ‘Rich ‘n’ Wild’ feature. Hopefully when this happens there will be a few wilds floating around on the reels. If there are then they become a sticky wild and stay there during the remaining free spins and any others turning up will become sticky too. The Rich ‘n’ Wild feature itself can’t be retriggered as the game logo isn’t present during this feature but three more games are again added if two scatters appear on the first and fifth reels.
There’s a fair bit happening in this game so it’s a very good idea to have some free ‘Rich ‘n’ Wild’ slot machine games before playing with real cash. That gives you the chance to see just how everything works out. Also have a good look through the paytable to find out the exact rules of the games and how much the winning combinations pay out.
There are other slot games out there that have similar gameplay to this one. For example, there’s ‘Electric Nights’ which is also from Ainsworth. That also has 30 pay-lines but a slightly higher RTP. ‘Electric Nights’ has a free spins round and contains a stacked wild that can boost your chances of winning. Also test your luck on the Ainsworth release ‘Big Thunder’ which again has 30 pay-lines and a wild that only appears on the third, fourth and fifth reels but has more free spins to win and a good multiplier too.
Those of you who have played a fair few Ainsworth games will be familiar with the gameplay here. The theme isn’t unique and could have been better adhered to but it has a colourful look. Having two bonus games is impressive and it’s not often you try to trigger a feature within a feature. Those bonus features can provide players with some good wins and this is a game that you should add to your play list when playing at an online casino.
