IGT Just Launched Stinkin Rich Pokie Machine
Stinkin Rich is a title developed by IGT. It has been around for a while in land based casinos.
The whole appeal of the pokie is its promise of wealth. Inspired by the literal meaning of the idiomatic expression, stinking rich, this game pairs wealthy looking folk with smelly objects.
What We Like
We like this games big winning potential. It is what IGT was going for when they set out to make this title. The highest value symbol rewards a massive 10,000 coins for a five in a row win.
This is a massive win, but the games phenomenal generosity does not stop there. The Keys to Rich feature, looks to make you a wealthy lad/laddette. It is triggered by landing three of the keys to rich symbols on a wagered line. It is not a scatter symbol, so they need to land next to one another to count.
This however is what makes the feature so good. It rewards 5 free spins for everyone of the symbols on a wagered line. This can be retriggered making it possible to find yourself in a position where 325 free spins are queued on the reels. If this happens, you might as well start booking your holiday in another tab while the game slowly works its way through the spins.
The game’s other feature is not as impressive but still worth a mention. When you land three of the trash for cash symbols, you trigger the Trash for Cash Bonus. It has simplistic pick and choose gameplay.
And all that is required of you, is that you select from one of the three symbols. The value behind this symbol is now your multiplier. The other two values are added together before being subjected to your multiplier. There is a potential 40x stake to be won.
What We Don’t Like
This is not a nice looking game. We think that this is the case because it is a land based game released on the online platform. Online pokies look better than their land based counter parts.
They have to, because it is a competitive industry. IGT are guilty of failing to do this game up, when they brought it online. We think that it is not an attractive game, and the graphics are dated. There is also little in the way of animation.
These are all the little details that come together to make a nice pokie. We also found gameplay slow, and there are not that many wins in the base game. True when you do win they are tasty, due to the high symbol values. But they are so far apart that you might use all your bankroll waiting for the win.
Is This Game Worth Playing?
This is not one of our favourite pokie, but IGT have kept it around for years. We can only assume that people must like, it just so happened that we are not those people. It really depends on what you are looking for, in an online pokie game.
If you are all about the winnings, then this is your game. The whole appeal is that free spins game mode, and there are countless videos on YouTube of people triggering and then retriggering hundreds of spins.
If you demand more from your games than a lot of free spins, this is not for you. If we are going to put our, hard earned, money into a pokie game, than it needs to look a lot better, and play better than Stinkin Rich does.
