Life of Riches pokies review
Microgaming has traditional values and while they’ve made a move away from the norm in Life of Riches pokies, some of their graphics will tell you they aren’t changing much. The top casino developer is one of our favourites, and with so many releases it can be hard to keep up – but this title has caught our eye for both good and bad reasons.

How to play Life of Riches
Released at the end of 2016, Life of Riches by Microgaming was live at all casinos by the start of 2017. It is based on the life rich people lead, and while we would be on the plane jet setting around the world too if we were rich, there’s a few representations we don’t like – we get stuck into these below.
Once you’ve opened the title up you will be able to set your bet size. You can go into options and play in coins or credits mode, or opt to play in both and then adjust your bets by clicking on the arrows and playing around with the buttons.
There’s 5 reels and 30 paylines, but these lines aren’t fixed so you can play as little as one if you wish. This gets the minimum bet to $0.01, perfect for low rollers. The maximum bet is $75 per spin with all paylines activated – some online casinos may vary with their limits so keep this in mind.
- Coin sizes – 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.25

Soundtrack and visuals on Life of Riches
This title is a stunning one, and Microgaming has branched out from the usual 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols replacing them with symbols which tie in with the theme including yachts, planes, passports, days out golfing and more.
Unfortunately, women aren’t exactly represented well. There’s five ladies and they’re either serving drinks, welcoming you on board a private plane, driving your car, handing a golf stick over, or holding the casino chips. While this may appeal to some, it does leave out a lot of the market – but it is animated so we will give Microgaming a pass.
The audio is interesting – it’s a pumped up electronic soundtrack which we wouldn’t expect to back a life of luxury. But it’s what Microgaming has gone with and you will either love it or hate it. If it’s the latter, click the audio icon in the top right hand corner to mute.
Gameplay and features on Life of Riches
Once you start spinning the reels you will notice the symbols you need to match on an active payline, though you can click on the paytable to view the payouts – adjust your bet size first to see what you can win as the table changes accordingly. The lowest possible payout is won by spinning three of the symbols featuring the bikini woman serving drinks on an active payline. When it comes to spinning the reels, the main aim is to land three Scatter symbols, or score Wilds for double the payout.
The Wild symbol is the Life of Riches logo and substitutes for all symbols, but not the Scatter. When it does complete a winning payline the payout will see a 2x multiplier applied. A 4x multiplier is applied during the Free Spins, which we detail below. The Wild also pays out big with a minimum of two of a kind topping up your account balance.
The Scatter symbol is the plane flying over the world and two of kind offers a payout, while five of a kind offers the best payout on the paytable. If you spin at least three you will also trigger the Free Spins feature.
Once you’ve triggered the Free Spins feature the reels will transform into a purple luxurious setting and 10 Free Spins will be awarded with a 2x multiplier applied. Every time a Wild appears and completes a winning payline a 4x multiplier will be applied to the payout. It may not happen as regularly as you like but you can re-trigger the Free Spins during the feature.
Where to find Life of Riches
Microgaming is everywhere due to its ability to offer premium gaming and above average payout rates. This is why you can not only find it at sites which are powered entirely by the provider, such as Casino-Mate but also at multi-developer online casinos including Wintingo.
You can use Visa, MasterCard or another secure deposit method to fund your Wintingo account, once you’ve followed the links and signed up, to get playing Life of Riches and potentially see your future as you spin the reels – if that’s what you’d do with all the money.
The final verdict on Life of Riches
Life of Riches is an entertaining title and the chance to win 2,400,000 coins is quite appealing. However, at Wintingo the maximum bet is set at $15 per spin – if you want higher head to Royal Vegas Casino for a maximum of $75 per spin – so the wins may not turn out to be as big as you initially thought they would.
We love a Wild multiplier – double the payout when a Wild completes a winning payline is a great feature for a pokie. The Free Spins on the other hand aren’t as generous as we have seen on other Microgaming pokies, but the 2x multiplier is well received and the chance to go up to 4x is also an exciting bonus. All in all, if you fancy a life of luxury give this title a spin.
