New Play’N GO Online Holiday Slot: New Year Riches
Most people are ready to kick 2020 out the door and give a warm welcome to 2021. Play’n GO is right there with us and offers up New Year Riches to celebrate.
Ushering in 2021 with Goals and Games
The past year hasn’t been all bad. For Play’n GO, it was a year of accomplishments. At the beginning of 2020, the online slot game developer promised to deliver 52 titles – one game per week. And it fulfilled that promise, complete with a range of games from low to high volatility, various themes, and new grids.
The titles of the past few months alone showed the diversity of games. Play’n GO released Holiday Spirits and Helloween as holiday titles, and other titles included Disco Diamonds, Viking Runecraft Bingo, Madame Ink, Rabbit Hole Riches, Feline Fury (The Kitties Are Coming!), and Octopus Treasure. Those are only a few of the releases of the past few months.
Anyone is free to peruse the vast – and ever-growing – list of Play’n GO titles. They all offer the option of free-play demo options, too.
Company CPO Martin Zettergren noted that the aim to release 52 titles in 2020 was a challenge, but one that Play’n GO reached without compromising quality or integrity.
He also mentioned the next phase of development, only to say, “2021 will be even better.”
One of the final releases of 2020 was New Year Riches, complete with a ball drop and New Year’s celebrations around the world.
New Year Riches Basics
Orchestral music welcomes players to the festive game. The background features a vast cityscape and skyline, with plenty of star-filled sky to serve as the backdrop for New Year’s Eve fireworks.
The five-reel video slot machine offers 20 fixed paylines. Set up as a medium-volatility game, the theoretical RTP (return-to-player) is 96.48%.
The minimum bet is $0.20 per spin, and options increase incrementally to higher bets like $20, $40, $80, and $100 per spin, the latter being the max bet. New Year Riches stays true to its name with a max win availability of 5000x the total bet, which can be $500,000 at max bet.
To offer some idea of the payouts, let’s take a look at the symbol pays when playing at $1 per spin and hitting five on a payline:
- Wild (champagne glass & bottle) = $250.00
- New York (Statue of Liberty) = $50.00
- London (Big Ben) = $25.00
- Japan (Kyoto Temple) = $15.00
- India (Taj Mahal) = $10.00
- Russia (Red Square) = $5.00
- Orange diamond or red heart balloons = $2.50
- Purple spade or green clover balloons = $2.00
New Year Riches Features
The Wild, which is the champagne glass and bottle, may substitute for all symbols except the Scatter. The Wild is also the highest paying symbol in the game.
The Scatter is a favorite feature of New Year Riches because three of them on the board equals free spins. The Scatter is the clock waiting to strike midnight. The player then wins 10 free spins.
The bonus round can be very lucrative due to the multipliers. The first spin begins with a multiplier of 2x. If the spin generates respins, the multiplier remains at that level for those respins. Each regular spin in the bonus round, however, increases the multiplier by two. By the tenth and final free spin, the player sees a 20x multiplier on a hit payline.
Speaking of respins in the bonus round, the Scatter is again beneficial. Just one scatter on the board warrants two respins, two scatters generate four respins, and three scatters give the player six respins.
Where to Play New Year Riches
To play New Year Riches for free, before depositing money to an online casino, simply visit the Play’n GO website and find it in the games section.
In fact, all of Play’n GO’s games are there, including the latest ones: Piggy Bank Farm, Golden Osiris, Frozen Gems, and Ice Joker. All of those were releases after New Year Riches to close out the year and meet the 52-game goal.
Note that the free-play games are limited to a relatively short period of time. The player can always refresh the screen, but the demo is meant for a short foray into the game, not an hour of free play.
Happy New Year!
