In With The New! Nouveau Riche makes its grand entrance at Kerching! Come See what All the Fanfare is About With 20 Paylines, Freefall Symbols and Stacked Wilds!
Rubbing shoulders with the upper classes of society doesn't have to be all posh and boring - it can be a thrill too …
Well, it can if you're immersed in a title like Nouveau Riche, which combines new slots gameplay with a vintage and luxurious theme.
And when we say 'new slots gameplay', we’re specifically talking about the Freefall Symbols feature (which we'll explain further down this page). This, along with the Bonus round and bejewelled visuals, make Nouveau Riche a thrilling game for all – and especially for beginners.
So, let's dig a little deeper …
Nouveau Riche Features
As a slot, Nouveau Riche has got everything you could be looking for; Stacked Wilds, multiple ways to win, and a theme-switching bonus round with an interactive Free Spins picker. But each one of those things deserves a bit of added exploration.
You can take care of that exploration yourself by playing Nouveau Riche right now. Or you can keep reading to find out our take on every feature. Your call.
The Wild symbol is literally the word 'Wild' wrapped in vines, and when this features on the reels, it connects to other important icons to ensure you win more often. It’s a 'filler' symbol – giving you the missing piece you need to complete a winning sequence.
In our eyes, this is where the game really shines. We’ve seen Freefall Symbols before in the likes of Transformers but the way they work in Nouveau Riche is refreshing … and can be lots of fun for beginners as the win frequency is cranked up a notch.
Here's how they work …
Every time you string a win together, you get an instant cash prize before some of the winning jewel icons disappear. Then the icons on the line above fall down into their place – potentially creating more winning sequences. This can all happen in a single spin, so you can keep totting up the wins in this way if the right symbols freefall, and connect.
Now you understand the Freefall element, keep it in mind as we walk you through the Nouveau Riche bonus stage (because it has another part to play later on) …
Free Spins Bonus
To trigger the bonus, you need to connect three bonus jug symbols across the middle three columns. This then takes you through to the interactive bonus picker phase, where you're presented with a choice:
Three of the Nouveau Riche muses are standing onscreen, each holding a jug. It’s up to you to select the jug and reveal your Free Spins total. It works just like a scratchcard.
Once you've got your figure, the Free Spins kick in where you can find out if you can instigate a bit of a win streak during the bonus round (Wild symbols can still appear in this stage of the game).
While you're in the bonus, you can keep it alive by landing +1 symbols – which add one free spin every time (you can keep getting these up to 100 Free Spins).
Once it's over, your bonus total will tally up onscreen. And then your Freefall Symbols come back into play to potentially trigger another win. See, the original bonus symbols you used to trigger the Free Spins disappear just like any other sequence of winning symbols, and the icons above fall down into place. Again, this could just light up another win for you before your next bet.
It's all about the upper class … but the upper class of old.
Everything onscreen, from the muse portraits to the picture frame border, is designed to rewind you from the 21st century and place you centre stage in an archaic but classy setting.
It's almost fairy-tale in appearance and has plenty of sparkle between the animations to keep that dreamy gaming experience going, right from your very first spin.
Beginners will enjoy the simplicity of this theme as nothing distracts from the game's 'good bits' – like the Freefall Symbols and interactive bonus.
Play Nouveau Riche at Kerching
All in all, Nouveau Riche is the perfect game to play as your first ever slot. As the paylines are fixed to 20, there is only one task required of the player initially – to adjust the bet size.
Then it's simply a case of spinning and looking out for the thrill symbols i.e. the bonus jugs or muses.
Once a win is triggered, that Freefall element provides gamers with a cliff-hanger playing experience, as just around the corner from every win, there could instantly be another.
Then there's the bonus round complete with subtle animations and interactive features, so there's always something to look forward to. On top of that, just when you think the bonus is all finished, that cliff-hanger experience comes back in as the Freefall Symbols are still active once you return to the normal phase of the game.
Anybody can get to grips with Nouveau Riche within a couple of spins. If you fancy an escape to the upper levels of life, then play.
