Plenty O’ Riches

Published: 07/01/2013

The introduction to Playtech’s Plenty O’ Riches slots game gives a good preview of the fun to come when the reels start spinning. The scene opens in lush Irish glen, where a Leprechaun stands next to a wishing well. A gold coin flies up from inside the well and as he bends over to see where it came from, coins come gushing up and shower down to form three piles. Each pile of coins reveals a bonus game

After the intro has ended, the 5-reel, 20-payline game display appears with birds chirping in the background. The Leprechaun stands patiently beneath a tree on the left side of the screen, waiting for some action to occur. When winning combinations come up, he may laugh or dance, pirouette or make a comment. If the player is inactive, he will wave his hands, smoke his pipe or take a glass of ale out from under his hat. He also interacts during the bonuses, so he is certainly worth keeping an eye on.

The line bets available on Plenty O’ Riches range in denomination from €0.20 to €500.00. That means the maximum wager possible pr spin is €10,000. The amount of the wager per line may be adjusted using the +/- toggles beneath the second reel. The “Options” under the “Tools” menu at the top of the screen offer other basic changes, such as audio on/off, volume control and fast play.

The reels on Plenty O’ Riches feature Playtech’s standard card symbols, Tens through Aces, fashioned out of silk ribbon. Matching three or more such symbols awards payline wins of 5X to 150X. The Plenty O’ Riches Logo pays even higher amounts—2X, 50X, 150X or 250X for catching 2, 3, 4 or 5 matches on an active reel. What’s more, the Logos are stacked so that they can fill all three positions on a reel.

The Wild Rainbow symbol substitutes for any of the symbols on the reels except the Wishing Well scatter, the Pot of Gold bonus and the Leprechaun bonus. Catching 2, 3, 4 or 5 Wild Rainbows on an active payline pays 2X, 60X, 200X or 500X, respectively.

Whenever all three of the Leprechaun Bonus symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 in any position, the Free Games Bonus is initiated, awarding the player 12 free spins. Although the free spins may not be re-triggered and other bonuses may not be activated in the Free Games Bonus mode, there are three special symbols that appear on the reels: Gold, Silver and Copper Coins. Respectively, they are worth multipliers of 5X, 2X and 1X times the total wager whenever and wherever they appear on the reels.

Any time three or more Wishing Well scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, a mystery payout is made. The Leprechaun will jump around catching coins in his hat as they gush forth from the Wishing Well Symbols. The value of the coins is displayed in a separate Win Meter at the top of the screen. Four Wishing Wells pay twice as much as three, and five pay ten times as much.

The top prize in Plenty O’ Riches is achieved by catching three or more Pot of Gold Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. A bonus screen appears showing small pots of gold lining a path toward a huge pot of gold at the end. The player picks a small pot of gold to reveal a cash prize and proceed to the next leg of the path. The selection of pots may continue through six choices and ultimately the grand prize. However, the Pot of Gold Bonus ends whenever a pot containing the word “Collect” appears; the odds of that happening increase, of course, as the path gets closer to the goal.

Beneath the fourth reel, Autoplay can be used for repeat betting. Just a click exposes the pop-up menu options for 10, 25, 50 or 99 automatic spins, plus the useful “Until Feature” button, which enables the game to play smoothly and automatically for an indefinite number of spins until one of the special Bonus features is won.
