Nouveau Riches Slots

Nouveau-RichesWith Nouveau Riche, the player gets an interesting design, with beautiful young ladies present among the symbols, with various types of jewelry and with a background that brings you closer to the nature aspect. I haven’t seen another game that has quite this kind of design or theme, and I enjoyed looking at it. Let’s see what kind of features were introduced in this game by IGT.

Like most slot machines with 5 reels, Nouveau Riche has 20 bet lines for you. That might be an average offer, but when you add the stacked wilds, the FreeFall symbols and the free spins, you will find that it’s quite the generous game. With big enough wagers in place, the game should be able to give you up to $500,000 cash as a prize.

Features of Nouveau Riches

Nouveau Riche has some very cool features to offer, starting with the freefall symbols, the stacked wilds, the scatters and the free spins.

FreeFall Symbols

The game’s symbols not only form combinations and pay you prizes, but they also give you a second shot at a prize. Whenever a combo forms, the symbols which are part of it will fall off the screen and new ones will appear in their place. The new symbols have their own shot at forming a combo. This can continue to happen until the symbols don’t form a combo anymore. That’s a big bang for your buck, when you get multiple paying combos and you only pay for the first one.


Stacked Wilds

The wild symbol comes in stacked, featuring an image with grape vines. Between 1 and 3 wilds are present on the reel simultaneously. All regular symbols can benefit from the presence of a wild on the same payline, as long as there are all the needed matching symbols as well.


Free Games Feature

The slot’s free spins start up when the Bonus icon is present on the same payline with three symbols. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd reels can host them, so all three need to get them.


You have to pick one of the muses next, to find out the number of free spins that you’re awarded. While the free spins are running, you can get +1 symbols, and they will add one extra free round to the total number.

Betting options and jackpots

The game’s betting range is anywhere between $20 and $2,000, depending on the line bet that you chose ($1 to $100). It’s not a cheap slot to play, so it’s best suited for the high rollers.

With big risks come big rewards, and this game gives you up to $500,000 cash. That’s a 5,000x line bet multiple.

Design and symbols

The muses that appear among the symbols get most of the attention, but there are a few regular symbols with gems in them as well, though they’re nowhere near as impressive as the ladies. The design has a certain early 20th century style to it, especially in the way the muses look. The background image I’m not sure how is connected to the theme, showing a flowing river, trees and mountains.


Symbols: Wild Vine (wild), Bonus Carafe (bonus), Nouveau Riche Logo (5,000 coins), Redhead Muse (800 coins), Blonde Muse (400 coins), Brunette Muse (300 coins), Green Gem (100 coins), Blue Gem (100 coins) and the Pink Gem (80 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

High rollers will find an intriguing game, with graphics which are not average and with some cool features. Even the top payouts are appealing, though at 5,000x it’s not the best possible bang for your buck.

Nouveau Riches can be found at any IGT casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
