Ultra Rich: Slot Overview

If you don’t happen to already be in the group, why not take a moment to pretend you’re part of the uber-rich, the 1%, the elite, or, as Red Tiger has put it, the Ultra Rich? Imagine money isn’t even an issue anymore. Whatever you desire, you get. Bugattis, gold toilets, nothing is unobtainable anymore. Now, back in the real world, most adults have to put in some sort of work to get rewards. So it is with the online slot Ultra Rich where the goal is to patiently spin away in order to upgrade better prize wheels to gain access to bigger and bigger potential rewards.

Ultra Rich prize wheel spins throughout the base game, above the main gaming area, to provide an incentive to keep ploughing on. To be honest, the prizes on the Base Wheel aren’t exactly major motivators, topping out at 15x the bet. Big whoop. But, possible rewards do get bigger as progress unfolds, culminating in the Mega Wheel’s 1,000x (keeping in mind multipliers are able to boost prizes on the two unlocked wheels further). The rest of the scene is all flashing lights and glitz, sort of game-showy, with several references to riches strewn about the place.

The main play area feels like a formality rather than something to really get excited about and holds 5 reels and 25 win lines. Clicking the Stake button brings up a list of betting options from a low of 10 c to at the most $/€10 per spin. The default RTP for the game is right at 96%, while its volatility is medium-high.

Regular symbols in Ultra Rich pay left to right on consecutive reels, beginning from the leftmost reel. Goldeny metallic 10-A card ranks are the low pays, awarding 4 to 6 times the bet for 5 OAK winning combinations. Then there are banknotes, cars, a lady singer, and a James Bond type of chap as the premium symbols, worth 12 to 40 times the bet for 5-of-a-kind. Next is the wild that substitutes for all of the pay symbols. Wilds may land on any reel, and when making their own wins, wilds pay up to 200x the stake for 5 OAK.

Ultra Rich: Slot Features

Ultra Rich slot – wheel bonus

Ultra Rich is all about its Wheel Bonus rounds, where up to 3 wheels may be spun to award cash prizes. However, the better wheels must be unlocked through a progress bar system.

Wheel Bonus

The wheel bonus symbol appears on the middle reel. When a wheel symbol hits, play moves to the bonus phase, and a wheel spins to award a cash prize. Or, as the game info calls it, an awesome cash prize. Basically, a segmented wheel spins, and where it ends, the corresponding prize is awarded. Some sectors on the wheel have a respin icon in addition to a prize. Landing on a sector with a respin awards one more spin on the same wheel, on top of the awarded prize.

Wheel Upgrades

A 2-stage progress bar is located above the reels, each stage holding 3 lights. Triggering the wheel bonus game activates one of the lights. Lighting up all 3 lights of a stage unlocks a new extra wheel in the bonus game. Two wheels may be upgraded this way – the Super Bonus Wheel and the Mega Wheel.

When the Super Wheel is unlocked, 2 of the sectors on the Base Wheel transform into green Upgrade sectors, which, in addition to awarding a prize, also grants an extra spin on the Super Wheel. When the Mega Wheel is unlocked, Upgrade sectors also appear on the Super Wheel, granting an extra spin on the Mega Wheel when an Upgrade is landed on.

  • Base Wheel Prizes – 5x, 10x, 15x.
  • Super Wheel Prizes – 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 30x, 40x, 50x.
  • Mega Wheel Prizes – 30x, 40x, 50x, 60x, 80x, 100x, 200x, 300x, 500x, 1,000x.

Prize Multiplier Reel

The Super Wheel and the Mega Wheel also have a multiplier reel above them. The multiplier reel spins random multiplier values of x2 to x20, or a diamond-shaped value-less position. The multiplier reel spins as well as the wheel. Landing a multiplier multiplies the prize won from the wheel.

Ultra Rich: Slot Verdict

Not sure if you caught this already, but it was reported that the Sultan of Brunei, one of the richest people on the planet, paid something like $24,000 to have his hair cut by a barber flown in from London. If that’s not eye-bulging enough, the Sultan is said to own over 7,000 cars. If he drove a different car each day, it would take around 20 years to get through the lot. There’s a chance he buys cars faster than he can actually drive them all. Why so many? Ah well, who’s to judge what other people do with their dosh, provided it’s all legal, of course.

Ultra Rich, on the other hand, yeah, why don’t we judge it a bit. Let’s start by saying Ultra Rich isn’t the most enthralling slot Red Tiger has ever done. There’s just too much sitting around, twiddling of thumbs in a feature-less base game, despite all the upmarket glitz on show. Next, you’ve got to work your way up to the more lucrative wheels by moving along the progress bar, which not only takes time but also the lower level wheels available in the meantime are pretty dull. Another issue is even when you’ve unlocked both wheels, you still have to start a wheel bonus round by spinning the Base Wheel, and only if you’re lucky enough to land on an Upgrade sector do you move to the Super Wheel, then if you’re lucky enough to land on another Upgrade sector, finally, the Mega Wheel is spun. There’s a bit of faffing about on small prize wheels, as well as a not-inconsiderable amount of luck needed to even get the chance for something thrilling to happen.

On a less critical note, actually moving through all 3 prize wheels might end up being exciting, and Ultra Rich has, believe it or not, a 10,000x the bet win cap, helped by random multipliers on the two better wheels. So, good things are capable of spewing forth from Ultra Rich, but a question mark hangs over how willing players are to patiently sit back and hope they occur.

Mediocre

At the end of the day, Ultra Rich is a mediocre affair.
