High Society Slots
High Society is a slot all about those finer things in life that come along when you’re in possession of copious amounts of money. Featured on the reels are diamond rings, gold watches, gold and silver bars, private jets, Rolls Royce cars and suitcases full of cold, hard cash. You’ll also find gold lined cherry cufflinks, which is a nice nod to the more traditional slots where the cherry would always feature. The highlight of this game is the free spins bonus feature, where you’ll enjoy a choice of two distinct rounds, one with super wild reels and the other with a super multiplier – all sounds super!
The backdrop to the game features a high rise city scene at night, with lights flicking on and off in the buildings and a spotlight illuminating the purple sky. The accompanying sound to the game takes you back to the era when the film ‘High Society’ appeared in the 1950’s and many of the symbols signify how the rich and famous might have spent their money in that time. In comparison to many slots today, you wouldn’t say this is the most modern looking, as functional symbols with a lack of animation are the order of the day here – although if you want a real money slot game that shouts money, this will certainly fit the bill.
How to play & real money versions
High Society is very much a standard five reel game, this one featuring 25 win lines. This number of lines is set, so your total stake will be 25x your coin amount. You’ll set the total stake using the up and down arrows on the control panel found beneath the reels, and then hit spin. To make your life easier you can also make use of the auto play option, where you can set the slot in motion for 10, 25, 50 or 100 spins, as well as a custom number – the best option of all perhaps being the ‘until stop’ where the game will halt when the feature is landed (or you run out of money!)
Fortunately you’ll be able to get your hands on some of the riches on the reels. These wins come along when you land three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line, although the biggest wins will obviously come when landing 5 in a row. The largest win at the slot comes along when you hit 5 private jets in a row, which pays out 3,000 coins. The private yacht and the car pay 2,500 and 2,000 coins respectively. The cherry symbol is the joint lowest paying symbol, once again, the traditional place for the cherry on the pay table.
Some wilds offer a huge cash win, a multiplier or are stacked on the reels. The wild here, represented by the title of the slot, does none of these things and only appears on reels 1 and 5. This makes it one of the least effective wilds ever in a base game! Fortunately it receives a much needed boost during the feature, where it really comes to life.
The scatter symbol of the slot is a one hundred Euro bill and it pays an immediate cash prize when appearing twice or more across any of the reels. Three or more of these scatters will also give you entry to the bonus feature. You’ll have a choice of the following two bonus rounds:
Free Spins with Super Wild Reels – You’ll have 10, 15 or 20 free spins based upon whether you landed 3, 4 or 5 scatters. During each spin reels 2, 3 or 4 will turn completely wild and a scatter appearing on reels 1 or 5 will also see that reel turn wild too. Land the scatter on reels 1 and 5 and you’ll retrigger 10 free spins.
Free Spins with Super Multiplier – You’ll have 10 free spins and have a multiplier chart which is higher the more scatters you landed to activate the feature. You’ll start at the bottom of the chart (which is a 2x multiplier for the minimum 3 scatters) and move along the chart for every scatter landed on reels 1 or 5. Once again, scatters on reels 1 and 5 will retrigger the feature.
You wouldn’t say that the High Society slot is the greatest looking game you’ll ever play and it’s not the most original either. However, when it comes down to it, we all play slots to win money, and this is clearly the focus here. The slot does have some old school charm too as the accompanying theme tune will appeal to many. Microgaming has designed a straightforward, but nevertheless enjoyable slot here.
