Stinkin Rich is a classing in the IGT collection. It has taken us a while to get around to reviewing this game, and it has been quite popular in land based casinos for some time now. It has an odd theme, and draws on the saying stinking rich. IGT uses this to justify mixing together assorted smelly objects and wealthy people.
What We Like
Free spins games are often considered a standard feature, because around 95% of pokie games have them. Stinkin Rich has the Keys to Rich Free Spins Bonus. Despite how common free spins are this feature is the whole allure of this game.
It promises wealth and fortune, the keys to be rich. It is not a quality feature but IGT has quality down pat. It is triggered by landing the ‘Keys to Rich symbols on a wagered line. 5 free spins are rewarded for every symbol along the line.
This makes it really easy to retrigger free spins, and potentially up to 325 free spins. If you trigger that many free spins, a big win is just a given.
There is another bonus, The Trash for Cash Picker Bonus, which we have mixed feelings about. It is hard not to like something that can award 40x stake, but at the same time we felt that the gameplay was a bit dull. You trigger the feature by landing three of the ‘Trash for Cash’ symbols. All you really do is click on one the symbols and it displays a value.
What We Don’t Like
The only ones getting Stinkin Rich of this pokie is IGT. This is an unattractive game. The layout is not tidy and the poor graphics give it a cheap feel. This is a fate many of IGT’s games have suffered, they will often neglect the important visual aspects.
If we are going to put our hard earned dollars into a pokie, we as the informed consumer demand that is looks nice. Capitalism can only prevail if we dislike this pokie and are hesitant to give it our money.
We played it and found the gameplay was not good. There are 100 paylines but the symbol have low values and it just felt like we were losing more than we were winning, as the game slowly ate into our bankroll.
That might just be luck, but we played for a while and found that it was a trend. You depend on the two features in this game; they are little parachutes you deploy on your bankroll as it falls. This is a very popular game in land based casinos.
But online pokies have surpassed the land based casino entirely and Stinkin Rich is not as good as countless other games we can think of, off the top of our heads.
Is This Game Worth Playing?
It all comes down to what you are looking for in your pokies. If you are after a game with big winning potential then this pokie will live up to your expectations.
But this is otherwise not a good game. We tried it, put some money in and got none out, and felt underwhelmed. You are welcome to experience this.
