Description and Review: Halloween is nearly upon us, so Rival are back with the latest installment of their Scary Rich series of slots. This, the third, they’ve rather wittily called Scary Rich 3. Yeah, I know – must have taken an age to think up.
OK, I’ll drop the sarcasm.
This time, the ghost hunters are exploring a haunted mansion, full of evil knights, ghosts and monsters. As you expect from Rival, the graphics are great. However, the splatters of blood that appear whenever you spin the reels get pretty annoying, pretty quickly.
To be honest, I was expecting a kinda fun, low variance slot with small wins that players would enjoy in a Halloween festive type mood. Not so. Scary Rich 3 is a high variance, 50 line game. You can burn through money very fast on this one, so keep a careful eye on your bankroll.
Unless, you hit 4 or 5 of a kind, the base game wins just serve to reduce your cash more slowly.
There is a single free spins round, triggered by three or more Baron symbols. Again, to really get the most out of it, you’ll need to get 4 or 5 triggering symbols. That way you’ll get 66 or a huge 666 free spins.
This really is a game for the high risk player. With a maximum bet of $125 per spin, the high roller with a taste for excitement is probably who Scary Rich 3 is aimed at.
During the free spins round, the Werewolf wild symbol becomes an expanding wild so the chances of picking up some decent wins is much improved over the base game.
We certainly couldn’t recommend Scary Rich 3 to the casual slots player, but if high variance, high risk and high reward are your thing, then this is a good ‘un.
