Tree of Riches (Pragmatic Play): Overview
One payline slot machines are not for everyone, that's just how it is. In the casino community, they rarely even get a mention. But seeing how providers refuse to give up on these classic machines, they must still be in popular demand, and regardless of what one's opinion may be of them, it's fascinating to see that they continue to stand the test of time. Courtesy of Pragmatic Play, Tree of Riches is their contribution to this classic niche, a slot that is made up of 3 reels, 3 rows and, of course, 1 payline. As often is the case with this provider, the Chinese theme is no coincidence and part of Pragmatic's strategy to strengthen its position on the Asian market. Playable from as little as 0.01 up to €/£50 per spin across all devices, it benefits from random win multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 2,880 times your stake.
Visually, there's nothing really unique about Tree of Riches. In fact, it looks like just about any of the other twenty or so Asian themed slot from Pragmatic Play. That doesn't mean it looks bad, but it's hard to ignore the fact that it's slightly generic. With a traditional Chinese feel and a soothing backing track to calm your nerves, you'll see a red velvet backdrop with a pattern of Asian-style waves in the background. When it comes to symbols, there are only 4 of them in total, and that includes the wild. The 3 regular symbols are made up of green, blue and red money bags which give you 28, 58 and 88 times your stake respectively if you hit 3 of them on the single payline.
Tree of Riches (Pragmatic Play): Features
Slot machine action in its purest form, Tree of Riches isn't exactly packed with features, but there are a couple of them at least. First, there is the Win Multiplier. Whenever a wild symbol, which is represented by the golden tree, forms part of a winning combination, there is a chance that your win will be subject to a random multiplier of 5x, 8x or 10x. If you land 2 wild symbols in combination with a blank, the empty position will Re-Spin until a win has been achieved.
Tree of Riches (Pragmatic Play): Verdict
That's all there is to it really. Simple, straightforward and fast-paced with good potential for a one-liner is how to best sum up this slot. Although we're not particularly fond of these classic machines, Tree of Riches is, without doubt, one of the better we have played in a while and a solid effort from Pragmatic Play.
High variance, it can be quite brutal on your balance so don't go in there with the mindset that it's going to print money for you. But if you enjoy these type of slots, there's a good chance that it will float your boat while also being fully capable of delivering substantial hits on a lucky day.
This otherwise ordinary one-liner is given a shot in the arm by its presentation and decent potential, which at least make the game’s limited premise somewhat interesting.
