Novomatic Blazing Riches Slot Review and Free Play

Blazing Riches: Demo

Old school fruit machine action is what’s on offer in Blazing Riches, a volatile 5 reel, 10 payline video slot from Novomatic. It might not look like very special but it comes with a feisty free spins round where frozen wilds can boost your winning chances. You’ll also have a shot at winning big money via a progressive jackpot feature. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 40p and £100 per spin.

Like many games from the Novomatic catalogue, Blazing Riches has a real retro feel. The imagery will be familiar to old school slots fans. Symbols on show include lower value cherries, oranges, plums and lemons. More rewarding are the grapes, melons and bells. 5 of these in a line will get you 8 times your total bet. Better still are the bars and lucky 7s which award payouts of up to 10 and 15 times your total bet.

Central to all the best action here is the smiling joker who acts as both the scatter and the wild. An award equal to 5, 10 or 20 times your total bet is on offer if you land 3, 4 or 5 jokers anywhere on the reels. Perhaps more importantly, you’ll also trigger the Free Games feature and with it, 10 free spins.

Novomatic likes to spice up its free spin rounds and Blazing Riches is no exception – the added wrinkle here is a frozen wild feature. Every time a joker lands during the free spins, it will be locked in place for all of the free spins you have remaining.

Blazing Riches also offers a chance to win a bumper progressive jackpot – fill the screen with 5 stacked joker symbols and you’ll win the big one. A proportion of the jackpot is awarded if you’re playing at lower than maximum stakes.

With a name like Blazing Riches you’d assume high volatility here and this slot delivers. Expect some lean spells punctuated by the occasional big win in this high variance game.

Novomatic video slots are rarely things of beauty when it comes to design. Blazing Riches won’t be winning any awards for its sound and visuals. The gameplay is simple but the high variance means it delivers a potentially hefty payout punch. For old school fruity thrills, you won’t go far wrong with Blazing Riches. If you like sticky wilds, WMS’ Black Knight II offers up to 3 sticky wild reels!
