Scary Rich Slots

Scary-RichIn Scary Rich, you will find a game designed by Rival Gaming, one of the titles they offer that are a bit more fun than the average slot machine, the theme being Halloween inspired and using images of all sorts of scary creatures. With Frankenstein, evil scientists, witches, mummies and skeletons, among other things, the game seems to try its best to make it a scary experience for its players, though it seems mostly to be funny and cute. The game is one of three in the Scary Rich series, and in this case we get the first title that was released, the one that started it all.

There are up to 20 lines that can be activated on the 5 reels of Scary Rich. You’re going to discover that there are free spins and multipliers, wilds and scatters, plus the usual bonus game. A $25,000 jackpot is also promised, a good enough reason to try it out.

Features of Scary Rich

You get all the typical Rival features in one place, like so many other slots from them do. You have an expanding wild during free spins, a regular one in the base game, scatter symbols, a bonus feature and free spins with multipliers.

First, let’s start with the Vampire wild symbol. It’s represented by a funny character that’s showing his teeth at you, but he’s more in the loveable category than in the scary one. Able to award the top jackpot on its own, with up to 10,000x as the big prize, the wild symbol is mostly known because of the substitution ability it has, which allows it to help out from time to time and form new combinations. It doesn’t form these combinations by itself, it still needs certain symbols to be on the same active line as it is, but in time you will find that the prizes it helps bring tend to add up. While playing in the base game, this is a regular wild and it has a x2 multiplier.

Free Games Feature

This bonus feature is triggered with the help of the only scatter symbol the game has, Frankenstein himself being the image selected for it. The scatter ability means that this symbol will appear in any random location and it will still be able to trigger the free spins. The scatter name comes from its power to trigger rewards without forming a combo on a payline.

3+ Frankensteins gets you 10 spins for free. While the rounds don’t have their own multiplier, they can use the one that the wild symbol brings along. It’s an expanding wild now, but allowed to appear only on three reels (1, 2 and 3). A single wild symbol adds a x2 multiplier, so the prizes are doubled. With two wilds contributing, the prize is worth x3 the usual amount. Finally, when all three expanding wilds are in place, you get 4x the normal prize.

Betting options and jackpots

You get to place a relatively average wager in Scary Rich. You can select as many lines as you want, up to 20 being available, and then you choose how many coins should be wagered on each one (up to 10) and what their value should be ($0.01 to $0.25). You can end up with $2.50 line bets and total bets of up to $50.

Since the game offers a pretty generous 10,000x as the top jackpot, you’re going to get up to $25,000 out of this slot machine. It’s only winnable during the base game though, as the wild symbol appears on three reels instead of five during the free spins.

Design and symbols

As far as scary slot machines go, Scary Rich is a pretty good looking example, with all kinds of cartoonish monsters appearing on the reels. They’re not necessarily scary, mostly entertaining and fun to look at, which is what a lot of players will prefer to see anyway. You will find all kinds of monsters among the symbols, with the reels being built out of human bones and skulls, plus a logo area that has stone crosses and evil Jack-O-Lanterns.

Symbols: Vampire (wild, 10,000x), Frankenstein (scatter), Black Crow (2,000x), Mad Scientist (1,500x), Elvira (1,000x), Werewolf (1,000x), Zombie Hand (666x), Carved Pumpkin (250x), Mummy (150x), Frankenstein Jr. (100x), Witch (65x) and Skeleton (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

I think it’s a game you will have no trouble enjoying. The features are not basic, they are fun enough to experience, plus you will find a good top prize and only average wager requirements. Even if you’re not a fan of scary slots, this is a good title to try once Halloween is right around the corner.

Scary Rich can be found at any Rival casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
