Wild Wild Riches Megaways Slot Review 2023
Pragmatic Play is making use of Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanic in their latest ‘Wild Wild’ title, Wild Wild Riches Megaways!
Just when you thought you had seen the last of Wild Wild Riches, Pragmatic Play have revived it once more and thrown in Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanic for good measure.
Since the release of Wild Wild Riches in 2020, Pragmatic Play put it to bed for a little while and went on to pursue other ideas..but not for long. Wild Wild Bananas bought the magic of a ‘Wild Wild’ title right back to us and now we can’t get enough.
With the Megaways mechanic under its belt, will Wild Wild Riches be the sequel we’ve been hoping for? Let’s play on and find out!

Wild Wild Riches Megaways: Our Verdict
Wild Wild Riches Megaways brings back fond memories of the original which was a little underestimated in our opinion, but has Pragmatic Play done one better in the sequel?
Why is it that most sequels always result in Megaways? It almost feels like providers run out of new ideas so instead resort to the Megaways mechanic, but does it pay off? We think so.
When it comes to Megaways slots, there isn’t exactly a shortage of them, but its what else providers throw into their games that makes them stand out and Wild Wild Riches Megaways does just that.
Pushing the boat out even more, Pragmatic Play has ditched their usual 5,000x max win cap and traded it in for a much more appealing 10,000x instead. This figure isn’t as generous as Wild Wild Bananas, but its a huge step up from the original Wild Wild Riches.
All in all, Wild Wild Riches Megaways may not be the most exciting slot from Pragmatic Play, but for those who love a Megaways slot with a difference, Wild Wild Riches Megaways is a great place to start!
