Rave Riches is a cool name for a slot game. We’ve seen lots of games that use the same letter for each of the words in the title. The riches part makes sense since we are playing for prizes. But is this one going to get a rave review from us?
You can find out for sure by reading through the various sections of our full review. We leave nothing uncovered, so settle back and find out what makes this one work so well – and whether it could be another one to add to your favorites collection.
We can confirm this is the latest release from a certain well-known team behind the name Realtime Gaming.
Demo access is easy, as always
You can always count on RTG to supply a demo version, and it is available for the Rave Riches title too.
The title holds a big clue to the theme in action here
Riches is an obvious word to include when prizes are in store. The rave part makes sense too though, especially when you see that is the setting for this game. No need to be a massive fan of raves here though, as there is plenty that is angled toward the slot game fan.
Design elements in action in Rave Riches
Color is a big draw in lots of slot games, but we haven’t seen too many that use color in the way it appears here. The game has some bright primary colors splashed around, yet only in small areas and lines. This means the darkened setting for the slot contrasts nicely with those colors, drawing the perfect balance between them.
Expect lots of people in the background, yet only in shadows, and speakers either side of the reels. Spotlights add further splashes of color too.
Reels, symbols, and more in the Rave Riches slot
We can confirm that this is a five-reel slot game. If you like to stick with progressive prizes, you won’t find any here.
You will spot a wild though, and since that is just what it says, in clear yellow and red colorways, you cannot miss it. There are a few things to be aware of with this wild. Firstly, it only appears on the second and fourth reels. Secondly, they can substitute for all other symbols with one exception – the scatter. This is the game logo in silver and green. The standard wild multiplier is 2x, but there are others involved in another part of the game we’ll cover shortly.
Quantity of paylines to choose from
Are they fixed or variable? Fixed in a sense, although there are none in action because we have 243 ways to win here.
Just one wager per spin
Way wins indicate we have one bet to select for each spin in Rave Riches. That proves to be the case, with the smallest one just 30 cents and many others ranging up to $150 at most.
It’s always good to check this out before spinning the reels for the first time. It’s simple enough to find, located behind the info button. You’ll see that at the bottom of your screen over on the left side.
We can keep this part super short as there isn’t one.
You can play free spins however
To unlock these, you need to find three scattered logos anywhere in view. Rather than winning a standard free spin round, you can choose which one you would like to play. The idea is to pick either, 15, 12, 10, eight, or five free spins. You would then get wild multipliers worth 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 8x, respectively. So, the higher the free spin count goes, the lower the multiplier is, but this only applies to prizes with a wild involved.
You can trigger more freebies too, and if this occurs (as it did twice when we played the game), you’ll get the same selection added on as you chose the first time.
No clear RTP here
No, RTG doesn’t usually release the return to player details for any of its games, so that wasn’t a big surprise.
Is there a lot to like in Rave Riches?
It’s a solid game, sure, and worthy of 7.5 out of 10 points. We feel it could have been better with a bonus too, although the choice element of the free games is cool to see.
What is the best prize worth?
The best standard prize on the paytable is 750x your wager for five of the relevant character icons. Of course, if you got a wild in that combo, you’d get 1,500x your wager instead. The best potential to score some bigger prizes is in the free spin feature, especially if you manage to score a good prize with a large multiplier wild in action.
Play the demo to get underway
Are you still hesitant to try this one? That’s not an issue thanks to the presentation of a practice version from RTG.
From the demo, switch over to the real thing if you wish
If you are keen to spin the reels of this one for real, all RTG casinos carry this game. Look for it in the new slots or games area.
Mobile access also available
If you would rather try the game using touchscreen controls on iOS or Android, you can do so whenever you wish.
