Win Big Prizes in the Outback
Roo Riches is a 5-Reel pokie with a straightforward outback theme. The background looks like you just got dropped into the outback with nothing but your trusty knife. The theme also seems like something from a movie like Crocodile Dundee. It fits the part but can get a bit annoying after listening to it on a loop for a while.
The pay symbols for this game are straightforward. The Royals only pay back half of your bet for three of a kind. However, they turn a nice profit for four or five of a kind. Your other pay symbols are hawks, coyotes, crocodiles, and kangaroos.
The higher paying symbols pay at least 2x your initial bet on a payline. The roos actually pay .5x your bet when two are on a payline. Otherwise, they are the highest paying symbol, paying between 50 to 2,000 credits on a payline.
This game does not use a wild, so landing a paying combination is a bit tougher than in some games. That may be why the game pays out a bit better when you finally make a paying line.
The base game provides a few options for a nice profit, but the real money is made through the bonus features of the game.
A desert mountain is the scatter symbol for this game. Land three or more and you’ll unlock the free spins game. Three scatters gives you 7 free spins. Four scatters awards 10 free spin. Get all five scatters and get 15 free spins.
During free spins, only blue cash chip symbols are in play. Any that land on the reels will be cashed in. When the free spins conclude, your winnings are added to your balance.
Cash Chip Spin
At random a Cash Chip Spin will trigger that will add multiple cash chips to the reels. Any chips that land on the reels are then cashed out. Chips range from 20 to 100 credits each.
We played quite a while before we finally triggered one of these spins. Once we finally triggered one, we received another Cash Chip Spin shortly thereafter. The average win was between 30x to 60x our initial bet.
If you want to give yourself a chance for a massive win, you can play the Lightning Bet. On the right side of the game, there is a Lightning Bet section. Click the red Lightning Bet button to activate the game.
During this game, all spins cost 200 credits. For example, if you play .01 per credit, you will play $2 per spin. The only symbols used in this game are cash chips. When a cash chip lands on a square, the square becomes a lightning bolt and the chip is cashed out. Chips are worth between 10 and 1,000 credits.
Cover all 15 spots on the board with lightning bolts and you’ll unlock the 3x Lighting Respins game. During this game, you will get three free spins, any cash chips that land on the board lock in place and reset the spin total to three. This continues until you have three consecutive non-winning spins or all blocks are covered with cash chips.
This is a very expensive game with a lot of fluctuation. However, the payoff can be massive. The first time we played the Lightening Bet game, the Respins Payoff was over 20x our initial bet. The second bet was a net profit, but not as massive.
Roo Riches A Great Game If You Don’t Mind a Little Variance
Overall, we weren’t overly impressed with the gameplay of Roo Riches. However, we did like having a chance to win some nice prizes. We didn’t break the bank with this game, but we did walk away a winner, which is why we recommend this game.
However, our recommendation comes with a caveat. This game is a medium-high variance online pokie. As such, you will have streaks where you don’t win much. However, the bonus games help to pick up the slack.
If you don’t mind some fluctuation in your bankroll, give the Lightning Bet game a try. While you have to pay 200 credits per spin, you will land enough wins while collecting lightning bolts to keep you afloat. This gives you a great chance to unlock the Respins mode to land a massive win.
This game is best suited for those chasing big wins over those wanting to clear bonuses. You can find Roo Riches at Pokies Parlour, Joka Room, or any online casino in Australia hosting iSoftBet games.
