Shake the tree on the slot from Pragmatic Play for a shower of gold coins worth up to 2,880 times your bet. Tree of Riches is another addition to the classic slot genre that seems to go through a revival as most developers have recently or are planning to release their take on the early slot machines. Pragmatic went for an Asian theme and a paytable where the lucky number 8 prevails as well as a multiplier feature that can randomly trigger when a wild lands in a winning combo.
Tree of Riches is a new video slot with three reels, one row and one pay line. Wins are awarded for three matching symbols on the line from left to right. Available on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, you can bet from just 0.01 up to 50 credits per spin. The high variance game (4/5) comes with an RTP of 96.65%
The design is as expected with a structured background in a deep red colour and a golden-ornamented game window. The fabled tree of riches towers on top with scrolls on either side displaying the paytable. A serene acoustic piece played on traditional Asian string instruments is the main audio on the slot.
The paytable is rather short with just three regular symbols – green, purple and red money bags. The lowest win of 5x your bet is awarded for any combination of the three bags. Lining up three matching bags will pay 28x, 58x and 88x your stake respectively. The golden Tree of Riches is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular symbols and paying 288x your bet when three land on the single pay line.
With fast-paced gameplay due to the lack of bonus features, you will be relying on the wild symbol for a breather and the chance to collect some extra wins. When two wilds land on a line together with a blank, they will be locked in place for unlimited respins until a win occurs.
Any wild landing in a winning combo will randomly trigger the multiplier feature, awarding an x2, x5 or x10 multiplier for the current win. They don’t stack, so the max you can get is x10. To hit the top win on the Tree of Riches slot you will need to land three wilds on the pay line and then trigger the x10 multiplier.
Not sure how to rate this game. While I am no fan of classic slots, there is still quite a large fan base who love to spin the reels on them. Game developers recognized that as the influx of classic slot releases this year has shown. Pragmatic Play did, as usual, a good job with the visuals and animations, while the gameplay is what you can expect from a one-liner. Dozens of empty spins in a row are the norm, not the exception.
