Nouveau Riche Slot Review
Nouveau Riche is an IGT-powered video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 20p a spin, you will enter the high society and enter a bejewelled world of splendour. Based on the Art Nouveau era, it’s quite similar in appearance to the classic Da Vinci Diamonds.
That isn’t where the similarities with Da Vinci Diamonds end – it uses a FreeFall Symbols feature where winning symbols from a winning spin disappear with the current symbols filling the gaps. Then, the empty spaces are filled with cascading symbols from above. This means you can win time and time again for every single spin. There are also stacked wilds in the base game which will boost your winnings.
However, what makes this game interesting is the Free Spins Bonus feature – this is triggered by getting 3 Muse Bonus symbols anywhere on reels 1, 2 and 3. You then need to choose one of the 3 muses to reveal how many free spins you will receive initially.
There are even more wild symbols in the free spins feature which will increase your chances of winning bigger. Furthermore, look out for the +1 Extra Spin symbols which appear on the middle reel – this will add 1 additional free spins every time it appears. In total, you can get up to 100 free spins if you’re lucky.
I found Nouveau Riche to be a medium variance game – wins are fairly frequent but of the smaller nature. However, all the big wins should come from the Free Spins Bonus feature. The Stacked Wilds in the feature are volatile in my opinion so I’ve had some huge wins and many, many smaller wins. I quite like the ‘new Da Vinci Diamonds’ as I’m calling it due to the unpredictability of the free spins feature. You should also play IGT’s Cleopatra II which is brilliant too.
