Rascal Riches: Slot Overview

Some people might think humans got a monopoly on crime, yet some animals aren't above bending the occasional law. One example is monkeys at a temple in Bali that apparently steal valuables from tourists and then drop them off in exchange for food - is this an example of the law of the jungle or capitalist entrepreneurship at its finest? You be the judge. Anyway, we're not dealing with fleet-fingered macaques today but a group of law-bending raccoons. The game is Rascal Riches and comes from software developer Play'n GO.

What exactly these rascally raccoons are trying to get their paws on isn't totally clear, but an extended intro scene lays a few breadcrumbs around. The goal of the operation appears to be a golden rubbish bin in a swanky building full of… well, stuff raccoons are drawn to. Discarded fruit or vegetables, presumably. Surely there is plenty of stuff lying in bins outside, or even on the street, which would be much easier to get hold of? Then again, what would life be if we always went for the easy option and shied away from challenges? If humans had that attitude, it might have been another species which climbed the evolutionary ladder to its top rung, and we'd be the ones rummaging around in garbage cans for edible trash while, let's say, sapient otters coded online slots.

Rascal Riches slot - base game

Played on a 5x3 game grid, Rascal Riches provides 243 ways to line up a winning combination. This occurs when identical pay symbols land on at least 3 adjacent reels from the first reel on the grid. Beneath the reels is Rascal Riches' stake bar, which players can scroll along to pick an appropriate wager of 10 p/c to $/€100 per spin. Mathematically medium-high volatile, players should be able to expect a max theoretical return value of roughly 96%, though lower models may be available, so it doesn't hurt to check. For symbols, five instruments of breaking and entering are used as the low pays and four characters are used as the premium symbols. When landing a 5 OAK low pay way, the rewards are 0.3 to 0.5 times the bet, rising to 0.8 to 1.5 times the bet for five high pay symbols.

Rascal Riches: Slot Features

Rascal Riches slot - random mystery feature

Rascal Riches comes with a wild symbol known as the Rascal Wild, which may appear on any base game spin. The Rascal Wild is a full reel wild that replaces all regular paying symbols. You can't miss it; the wild is made up of the three rascals standing on each others' shoulders with a trench coat wrapped around them in disguise. However, The Rascal Wild doesn't only substitute pay symbols; it may also reveal up to 3 modifiers. Each of the 3 rascals may reveal any one of the modifiers.

  • Multiplier – an x2, x3, or x5 multiplier can be revealed. The multiplier is applied to all wins on the spin, and multiple multipliers are added together.
  • Mystery symbols – 2 or 3 Mystery symbols are added to the grid. Mystery symbols reveal any regular pay symbol.
  • Row Splitter – all symbols on the respective row are split into 2. This does not split the Rascal Wild or scatters. This feature can create up to 3,888 ways to win.

Free Spins

Golden Trash Can scatters are present on reels 1, 3, and 5. Landing 3 of them awards 5 free spins. The Rascal Wild is active on every single free spin, moving position each spin. Before the final free spin, the Golden Trash Can awards a multiplier of x20, x30, x50, or x100. This multiplier is applied to all wins on the last spin. Any multipliers from the Rascal Wild are added to the Golden Trash Can Multiplier before being applied.

Rascal Riches: Slot Verdict

Like a pet that's adorable one moment, kinda annoying the next, Rascal Riches teetered between charming and vexing through much of the session. It definitely has a lot to offer fans of charming animal slots, especially since these critters (they are racoons, right?) don't show up in a heck of a lot of slots. Developers prefer fully domesticated animals like cats or dogs, or fully wild animals like rhinos or buffalos, to animals that are technically wild but have carved out a niche in the city, scavenging about for food. There's something about these creatures where, despite a level of cuteness, their feral nature dampens the desire to reach out and pat one.

There's nothing feral about Rascal Riches, though. The opposite, actually, and the trio of menaces have a charming Top Cat vibe to them. Yep, they're rascals, but they've got hearts of gold. They're playful too, and Rascal Riches keeps its finger on the 'playfully cute' button the whole time, from the feel-good opening animation to the endearing Rascal Wild stack of rascals triggering bonuses. Those in the mood for rubbing shoulders or paws with charming criminal furballs get all of this and more in Rascal Riches. On the topic of riches, Rascal Riches is capable of drumming up wins as high as 9,000x the bet. That figure was surprising to see after an initial run, as the game just didn't seem to produce much in the way of substance. However, it is possible to build up a lot of ways, not to mention inject tidy multipliers, especially on a final free spin, so you can see how Rascal Riches might cause a surprise. The Mystery symbol is arguably the least desirable bonus, yet it's better than being hit by raccoon spray. Oh wait, that's a skunk, but you get the idea.

To sum up, Rascal Riches is an ok game which initially felt content chasing its striped tail around in circles, and it does have a bit of a dated feel to it. However, its tail does have a sting, so should the rascally ramble get their act together, Rascal Riches is capable of delivering entertainment from a purely gameplay perspective, too.

Mediocre

For better or for worse, Rascal Riches is a rather formulaic Play’n GO slot that seems stuck in time.
