The wombat says: We can’t all be millionaire gastronomes wombat fans! And for those of us who’d like a peek at how the other half live or at least the characters off the Codfather slot, let’s give The Finer Reels Of Life slot a spin!
Look and Feel
You’ve guessed it, the theme here is luxury and Microgaming have really delivered design wise! The graphics are sumptuous-looking complete with some very elegant reels that are jampacked with bling and swanky items. Luxurious purples and lavish golds make up the sophisticated colour scheme which is set on a background of dimly candles over-looking a night-time cityscape. Things have certainly moved on from games like the Hitman slot machine and Tomb Raider, Secret of the Sword.
All-in-all a very nice slot to look at – without a 3D animation in sight!
The Finer Reels of Life Slot Game Play
Microgaming love a ‘243 ways to win’ slot, don’t they?, even if they did start off leaning towards pay-lines – with the Break da Bank slot and others. If you don’t already know how it works, I’ll explain. You can scoop wins by landing 3x or more of the same symbols from the left to the right AND from right to left on adjacent reels. That’s it! No paylines, no fuss!
Your luxury symbols on the reels include: flash diamonds, clinking champagne glasses, malt whiskey and cigars, cheese and wine and luxury coffee and chocolates, then there’s the low value symbols that are made up of the 9, 10, J, Q, K & A.
The Wild symbol in the slot is the Finer Reels of Life logo, and substitutes for all symbols in the game apart from the Scatter. It will also double any wins its involved in with a x2 multiplier, which we like!
This is a randomly awarded extra which will turn up to 5 reels wild at any point during the base game!
Land 3x of the Golden Stars on the reels to trigger the The Finer Features bonus. There are 4 games in the feature – 3 of which have to be unlocked. First up is the Coffee and Chocolate Bonus feature. Here you’ll get 10 free spins with all wins multiplied 5x. After you’ve set off the Free Spins round more than a few times, you’ll unlock the rest of the bonus games which include:
Wine and Cheese
This is unlocked after 5 bonus rounds and will give you 15 free spins plus the Wild Wine feature, where landing the wine label on reel 3 turns random symbols into Wilds
Whisky and Cigars
This cheeky feature comes into play once you’ve triggered 10 Free Spin rounds, and includes 20 free spins plus a Burning Wilds feature where random symbols burn up and turn into either 2x or 3x multipliers
Champagne and Diamonds
If you manage to land 15 of the Free Spins bonuses (!) then you’ll enter Champagne and Diamonds. Here you’ll be awarded 25 free spins and the Rolling Reels feature where every consecutive win increases your multiplier from between 2x and 5x.
There’s heaps of decent payouts here in the Finer Reels Of Life slot, and you really will be living the high life if you get as far as the Champagne and Diamonds Free Spins Bonus! This grown-up slot is a pleasure to play with soothing music that will keep you spinning for hours.
