Online slot gaming developers Play‘n Go have had a phenomenally successful 2020, launching over 50 online slots games onto the market before December, and now they are already looking ahead to 2021 with their latest release.
About the game
Play‘n Go have perfectly captured the essence of New Year’s celebrations with this game, with the reels on this 5×3 layout depicting some of the most iconic landmarks in the world such as Big Ben, the Taj Mahal and the Statue of Liberty. The base symbols are represented by helium-filled balloons depicting the four playing card suits, hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs, which is a nice touch and adds to the celebratory feel of the game.
There are 20 paylines in the game and the betting range starts at just 20p per spin, right up to the maximum of £100 per spin, and this is a medium volatility game that has a default Return to Player of a not too shabby 96.48 percent. However, this can be adjusted to a lower percentage, so it is worth checking the version you are playing in case the RTP has been reduced significantly.
The CPO of Play’n Go Martin Zettergren recently commented on the new release stating that in developing New Year Riches, “The company had achieved what it set out to do and that was to challenge themselves to reach further than they had before, but without compromising on integrity or quality.”
The Bottom Line
New Year Riches is not a complicated game to play, which makes it so much more appealing, especially as wins can come when just 3 to 5 matching symbols fall next to each other on a payline. Wins of up to 5,000 times your initial bet can be achieved if you get lucky, but if the RTP is set to the maximum, there are plenty of smaller but still ample winnings to be had in this game.
