2020 for a lot of us has been a tough year, we’ve all have had to endure a lot, but as always, a new chapter begins, a new year with new opportunities. To celebrate this occasion, Play’n GO have come up with New Year Riches slot. For a moment we are putting our differences aside and we join all in one celebration. In its core, this is another one of those simple Play’n GO 5 reelers, but perhaps it’s for the best if we keep things simple, so our minds can take a little well deserved rest.
New Year Riches may come with a single feature, but don’t let that discourage you from trying your luck, as this feature can be well rewarding. It’s a bit odd how this slot is not the final release of 2020, as there are a couple of more slots we expect from Play’n GO before the year is over, New Year Riches would seem like the perfect finale, right? The clock is ticking, so let’s begin with the festivities.

New Year Riches Slot Review
Gameplay and Design
This might be just us, but the whole vibe, especially the music reminds us of SimCity or Sims. If you know, you know. But otherwise, it’s quite a glamorous presentation. New Year Riches has that New York Art Deco style, which adds an extra layer of fancy. New Year Riches is overlooking a panorama of an undisclosed city. From the lack skyscrapers we doubt it’s New York though, but who knows. The regular 5x3 layout ensures the feeling, that this is another classic release from the provider. New Year Riches is a rather simple looking slot, but we don’t mean that poorly.
Just like those movies, where you fly to another time zone just to make it in time for New Year, New Year Riches will take us across the globe, with the help of symbols. The high paying symbols are many different landmarks from around the world. You could argue, in what value order the symbols should be arranged, but we will go by the order that Play’n GO has set. Lowest value high paying symbol is the Saint Basil’s Cathedral after that follows Taj Mahal, Hiroshima Castle, Big Ben and finally the Statue of Liberty. Let’s also not forget the low symbols, which are the 4 card suits, styled as colourful balloons.
To produce a payout of any sort, you need to match at least 3 symbols. The best payout you could ever score on New Year Riches is 5,000x. Naturally, you would need to play all your cards right to come anywhere near that payout, but the chance is there nonetheless. The choice for bets ranges from 0.20 to 100. Play’n GO have rated volatility 6/10, which makes it fall into a medium-range, with a touch to the high side. A positive addition is the over the average 96.48% RTP, that should help to even the playing field a bit.
This section is going to be pretty short and sweet, as New Year Riches comes with a single bonus feature. New Year Free Spins are triggered with 3 scatters, which are clocks that count down the final moment. This bonus begins with 2x multiplier. With each spin, the multiplier increases by 2x, reaching 20x for that final monumental free spin. No retriggers are possible, but you can get some Re-Spins along the way.
• 1 scatters = 2 Respins
• 2 scatters = 4 Respins
• 3 scatters = 6 respins
Respins use the multiplier that you have at the moment, also Respins don’t add extra multipliers. To make New Year Riches at least a bit more active, the champagne bottle is the Wild symbol, substituting all symbols except scatters.
New Year Riches is as elementary as it gets. 5 Reel slot with decent payouts and a single bonus feature. New Year celebration usually is something grand and extravaganza, but there is not that much of excitement coming from New Year Riches. But not all is lost, as the single bonus feature can be quite fun, especially when you get to that last 20x spin with fingers crossed for a great combination.
New Year Riches provides the default Play’n GO treatment, which has a tendency to get redundant. The biggest problem is the linearity of gameplay. You constantly grind the main game just to score the Free Spins and the cycle continues afterwards. New Year Riches is a decent slot, but by the time we reach next year, it may already be forgotten.
