Squealin’ Riches Our Verdict
Squealin’ Riches may be somewhat simple in nature when compared to the baffling mechanics that exist elsewhere, but the LOCKnWIN, Jackpot Features, Bonus Wheel and Free Spins actually makes it quite a dependable and diverse title.
Saying that, as diverse at it may seem you can’t exactly call Squealin Riches innovative. There are plenty of features here that we’ve seen before elsewhere, and unless you’re pretty impressed by the piggy bank, money focused theme, then there’s no real reason to stray away from any of your favourite existing titles that utilise the same features.
Statistically, Squealin’ Riches looks pretty good with a maximum win capability of 13,512x, though you’ll need a few Jackpot upgrades first.
Overall, Squealin’ Riches is a pretty standard slot, but it’s by no means bad. It’s well worth a try based on its capabilities alone, but unless it shows you what it’s made of we don’t expect that it’ll leave much of an impression
