The High Life slot looks like one of the earlier attempts of Microgaming at a luxury themed slot machine, the kind of game where you see cigars, diamonds or expensive cars among the symbols. The end result is not quite as polished as it is in other games that they’ve released so far. Features that you will encounter along the way include a wild, a scatter and some free spins with their multiplier. There is nothing exceptional or different about this slot machine, and it comes with only 5 lines on 5 reels. It can pay a lot, but it’s not going to be a very high multiplier, the $60,000 meaning only a 1,500x reward.
Betting and Prizes
The game doesn’t just preach the high life, it actually can cost enough to require that you live well already. Using line bets of up to $40, with 20 coins of $2 being the highest one possible, the game can require up to $200 per spin from players that want to max out this part. Luckily, bets as small as $0.01 are also possible, it’s up to the player in the end.
The High Life will get you a 1,500x prize in the base game, or a 3,000x one during free games. It can mean a lot of money thanks to the wager value, the former paying up to $60,000, while the latter will offer $120,000.
The High Life Slot Features
The wild’s appearances will be limited to the 2nd and 4th reels, a limitation that I’m not a fan of, not with a game that has only 5 lines and few enough chances to hit something already. It’s the image of the Mansion that will be displayed for the wild, a symbol which is useful only as a way to get some other combination formed, when it is acting as a substitute. It doesn’t replace a Car scatter.
The Red Car will be another symbol of status that The High Life uses to act as a feature. It is a scatter symbol, one which can pay 1x, 3x, 10x or 100x total bet, depending on the number of times it can be seen on the reels.
You can win 10 free spins, if 3+ Car scatters are on the five reels, in any position. Prizes are all doubled during the free spins, even the top jackpot.
Theme & Design
You will find the usual symbols which luxury themed titles have to show their players. It starts with a mansion and a sports car, then continue with the yacht, the diamond, the cigar box, a glass of champagne, and then they move to the poker card icons.
The High Life slot doesn’t offer enough lines, quality of design, prizes or features, and imagination isn’t something that it’s been blessed with either. Overall, I would say you should go with another luxury themed game, there are better ones out there.
