Red Hot Riches Base Game

Red Hot Riches Base Game Symbols & Features

red hot riches slot

The action unfolds over a 5×5 gaming matrix providing a total of 3,125 winning ways across which to form wins comprised of 3 or more identical symbols, consecutively from reel 1 onwards. Onto the paytable, where we discover playing card ranks from 10-A making up the low pays, joined by 5 bells, coins, gold bars, gold bars, and coins, and dollar sign symbols representing the premiums where wins worth a 7.5x your stake can be earned for hitting 5OAK winning combinations.

Wilds also have a part to play in Red Hot Riches, completing wins by replacing all regular symbols while also possessing values of 15 times the stake when forming wins of 5 of themselves.

Features Ablaze:

Features time, where the menu reads Rolling Reels, Echo Rolls, Upsizer, Free Upsizer Max, Upsizer Buy, and Free Spins + Free Upsizer Tokens.

Rolling Reels, aka cascading/tumbling reels, activate after a win is achieved. How they work is that winning symbols are removed from the grid, making space for new ones to drop in from on high, continuing in this way until no fresh wins materialize.

Next, hear the echo of Echo Rolls which can trigger at random, ensuring a win by dropping symbols into any vacant symbols that appear after a winning Roll.

Free Spins Inferno:

Upsize your wins with the help of Upsizer Coins which fall at random in the base game before being collected. Upsizer Coins correlate with modifiers on the Upsizer Trail situated to the side of the reels offering an amount of spins between 6 and 12 along with Rolling Wins multipliers of 10x, 20x, and 50x, in addition to 1 or 2 Echo Rolls during Free Spins.

Closely related to Upsizer Coins is the Free Upsizer Max feature. One Upsizer Max Coin is earned for every three scatters landed simultaneously in the base game. 5 Upsizer Max Coins are your ticket to Free Spins at the highest Upsizer level available. Then there’s the Upsizer Buy option. This allows you to purchase higher Upsizer modifiers for a fee relative to your wager level shown on the screen.

Red Hot Riches Free Spins

Last but not least, Free Spins at the current Upsizer Trail level are awarded when landing 3 base game scatter symbols. During the feature, the win multiplier increments by 1 upon each Roll, remaining progressive throughout.

In accordance with the Upsizer level, multiplier values top out at 10x, 20x, and 50x. Furthermore, 1 additional spin is awarded for each landed scatter symbol, while each scatter that hits beyond 3 pays out a win of 10x the bet. Once the round concludes, take a spin on the Free Upsizer Wheel where a max of 150 Upsizer coins can be obtained.

Red Hot Riches Echo Roll Feature

Red Hot Riches: Our Verdict

Any Alchemy Gaming fans out there will feel right at home with this reproduction of Anvil & Ore repurposing a tried and tested feature suite that includes Rolling Reels and Echo Spins, with a host of familiar Upsizer action wedged into the game to swell your potential.

On the topic of potential, the advertised 5,000x max win is neither here nor there, really, nowhere near the most highly strung beast on the market nor the limpest catfish either. It feels pitched about right for what is a game tailored toward a less demanding slot audience happy with regurgitated bonus extras.

When the dust settled, it was hard to get too excited about the gameplay wedged into Alchemy Gaming since it prompted pangs of deja vu; a slot lamb dressed in sheep’s clothing cheekily stealing its ideas from earlier incarnations. The graphics are decent, granted, but for a game promising so much heat, we were left feeling slightly chilly by the lack of originality or ambition on show.
