Ready to let your sense of adventure loose and take on a challenge? Could you be part of the first team to hit the summit of a rocky and icy mountain peak? That’s the adventure offered by the exciting Nucleus Gaming demo slots, Peak Riches.
Players are kitted out with all the equipment they need to conquer the elements and aim for a win, but you also get to enjoy plenty of bonus opportunities along the way. The set up here invites you straight into a world of fun, competition and challenges, set across 5 reels packed with great visuals.
Graphics & Soundtrack
Everything about Peak Riches is there for a specific reason, making it a no-nonsense slot. The game opens to a background of the mountain range you’ll be tackling during play, with the reels taking centre stage.
There are lots of relevant symbols featured on those reels, including an ice pick, tent, rope and snow boots. A, K & Q sit inside ice cubes, while the special icons are the Forbidding Peak wild, and two climbers.
When it comes to slot sounds some people love them, and some really don't. With Peak Riches we are sorry to say we have one foot in the second group. Only one though, because while the background tune that plays over and over on an incredibly short loop is quick to irritate, the in-play sounds are great and add atmosphere to each spin.
Peak Riches RTP and Variance
Neither of these are public knowledge but after playing the demo game we got the impression that the volatility level could well be medium-high.
How to Play Peak Riches
This is a pretty straightforward slot to set up and play, and this handy guide should help where needed:
- Get familiar with the control panel that sits under the reels. At the far left is a speaker icon that lets you quickly toggle the sounds on and off.
- Next is the small I that leads to the rules and payout information, along with the turbo play toggle and one of the two routes to autoplay.
- A really important section that deals with the bet size settings for each spin. Use the plus and minus buttons to adjust to your personal preference; and feel free to change it up between spins.
- Next along is where the current credit balance is displayed, right next to the oversized spin button.
- Last in line is the auto symbol, where autoplay spins ranging from 1 to 1000 can be set up.
Bet Sizes & Paytable Wins
Peak Riches offers players a generous range of bet sizes, ranging from 0.10 to 40 credits each spin. With plenty of steps between these points there’s plenty of flexibility, plus you are free to switch things around between spins as you choose. After all, playing in fun mode is no barrier to making strategic choices.
The main symbols featured in Peak Riches payout for 3 to 5 matches on a spin, with some also paying for just 2. [The mountain peak symbol is an exception to all rules.]
Here are some more details on the credit payouts players can expect when making the right matches.
Mountain peak - 5 symbols pay 16.00 credits
Green camp & red camp - 5 symbols pay 20 credits [dropping to 0.80 for 2 matches]
Tent & ice pick - 5 symbols pay 12 credits [dropping to 0.16 for 2 matches]
Snow boots & rope - 5 symbols pay 6.40 credits
A, K & Q pay 4 credits for a full house of 5
Peak Riches Bonus Features
Let’s start with the wild, which in this slot is represented by the Forbidding Peak image. This pops up to replace main symbols to help trigger a win, but it doesn’t cover for either the red or green camp icons.
The same symbol also represents the scatter / free spins bonus which rewards players with both credits and free spins.
3 symbols pay 1.60 and 10 free spins
4 symbols pay 16.00 and 15 free spins
5 symbols pay 160.00 and 20 free spins
Race to the Peak
To trigger this bonus feature you need to land a Forbidding Peak symbol flanked by a red camp and green camp icon at either side of it. This leads to the reels expanding and the climbers filling the ascent meter.
Once the ascent meter is filled up you can bet on which colour camp you think will win the race. If you are correct your reward is this extra bonus.
- Red camp wins pay 10 free spins, with a x5 multiplier on wins
- Green camp wins pay 10 free spins, and the number of expanding symbols is boosted to 5
Peak Riches Review
Peak Riches is a game we highly recommend to everyone, even if you are new to adventure themed slots. It cleverly combines an exciting challenge with great visuals and then adds a selection of bonus features on top.
If your mountain climbing appetite has been unleashed playing Peak Riches you should give 9K Yeti slot a try. This time you are facing Everest and playing with over four thousand ways to win. Watch out for signs of yetis, snowstorms, stacked reels and free spins.
