Stinking rich is an odd little theme, inspired by wealth and bad smells. Stinkin Rich is the little known phenomenon, which occurs when people run into money and begin to smell. On the reels there are posh people and assorted smelly objects, like socks and a skunk.
International Gaming Technology is an American pokie developer, which has been involved in the gaming and lottery business for the last 50 years. They built approximately half of the pokie machines in America and they are a little bit of a towering corporation.
The company should know a thing or two about being stinking rich. They have encountered nothing but success since they opened shop, building land based pokies machines out of Las Vegas. In 2005, IGT developed their first online game, and they have made over 180 since.
We have mixed feelings about their previous games. When they release a big title, they go all out and make a fantastic game. Unfortunately, not all of their releases get the same amount of attention. The appearance and graphics are normally the first to suffer.
Stinkin Rich is a 5×5 pokie. The reels have a pink border and sit in a pile of gold coins. The high value symbols on the reels are the modern day aristocracy, with their pipes and poodles. The low value symbols are smelly objects. We are just going to say it.
This is an ugly pokie. You can adjust the graphics but even on the highest settings they still look dated. It is an untidy lot that just doesn’t have it. Quality is an undefinable concept, if you do not believe us read Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance.
But in all seriousness this pokie does not have it. Saying all this it is a wildly successful game in ground based casinos. We just think that there is a higher standard online. Now that all the opinions are out of the way, we can tell you it is a generic looking game, with the game controls under the reels.
How to Play
There are 100 paylines in Stinkin Rich, so you would expect to win often. We found that while there were a lot of wins, the symbol values are quite low. The wins were below wager and the game chewed up our bankroll.
The RTP is from between 92. 52% and 96.23%, which is a massive variation. There is generic gameplay that plays like the vast majority of video pokies.
You press a button the reels spin and if you are lucky the symbols fall in into place, and you win. For more information about symbols values, betting options and to see the pays table, there is a small button in the top right of the screen.
The Keys to Rich Free Spins Bonus is the one that the game is well known for. It is triggered by landing three of the Keys to Rich symbols.
They are not scatters and have to land left to right. It is just a free spins game, but the appeal is in the quantity not the quality. You wins 5 free spins for every Keys to Rich symbol you land on a payline. There are a potential 325 free spins, which if you even some close to triggering, you will win big.
The Trash for Cash Picker Bonus is a very simple feature. When you land three of the ‘Trash for Cash’ symbols, you trigger the game. All you have to do is click on one of the symbols on the reels and the game will rewards a value of up to 40x your stake.
The only win worth talking about in this game is the Keys to Rich feature. If you spin the reels that many times, you will win big.
Landing five of the highest value symbol, the lady in the green dress, wins an impressive 10,000 coins, and there is 40x stake in the Trash for Cash Picker Bonus.
We have mixed feelings about this game. It is not a well designed pokie, but the features do a lot to redeem it. We do not consider it that great a title.
But IGT have had a lot of success with this game at land based casinos, so you might enjoy it. There is an impressive free spins feature, which is the point of this game.
