Rich Geyser is one of the slot machines that Plank Gaming is producing exclusively for Microgaming, and for this particular release they’ve chosen an oil drilling related theme, an activity that’s still quite profitable. It will take us to Texas and show us the oil fields, and it will give us a couple of OK features as well, all while sporting an excellent RTP.
To give you some specific numbers on what Rich Geyser can offer, this slot machine relies on the usual 5 reels, and then uses 10 active paylines on them. It’s got stacked wilds and the interesting Gushing Wilds Respins for its features, and through them it’s entirely possible that a payout as high as $250,000 could be paid (2,500x total stake). Finally, the biggest advantage that this game seems to have comes in the form of a 97.36% RTP, way above the average figure of 96% that other new slots are offering.
Betting and Prizes
You will have to spend a minimum of $0.20 when playing Rich Geyser, and the slot machine will give you 10 active lines in exchange. The bet can be higher as well, with its maximum setting taking it to $100 per spin, or $10 per line.
The wild symbol is the star here, in more ways than one. When it comes to the top prize, this symbol forms the best paying combinations, and it offers up to 250x the stake for each one. This means a top payout of $25,000 per line, or up to $250,000 for all of them (2,500x total stake).
Gameplay wise, this game has Medium volatility. It also promises a long-term RTP of 97.36%, which is by far the biggest advantage that the slot might have over other titles with similar jackpots and volatility.
Rich Geyser Slot Features
While the slot’s features aren’t that many, and the game has only one symbol to offer in this area, it’s not a bad one to play.
For starters, the game has its wilds landing stacked on all reels, which is what happens with its regular symbols as well. It could contribute to several wins at a time this way, and its own wins of up to 250x the stake can also form several times in one round, if they do trigger at all. There are no other feature symbols, so the wilds are substitutes for all other icons, without exceptions.
Whenever two or more wilds appear at the same time, on different reels, the game triggers a Gushing Wilds Respin feature. It has the stacked wilds moving down by one space each round, while the symbols around them will respin and hopefully bring new wins and wilds. The respins stop once the wilds leave the game area.
As you can see, it all relies on the wild symbols, and the list of features isn’t too long. The game still manages to offer an excellent RTP.
Theme & Design
Rich Geyser is your usual oil drilling inspired slot, using a theme that has been included in several other games in the past. None of them have been particularly impressive graphics wise, and Rich Geyser doesn’t contribute a lot to the looks department either. As its symbols, the game has a mix of oil drilling icon, along with Royals and characters or stock price charts.
Rich Geyser is going to be interesting mostly because of the RTP it offers, but otherwise it’s a simple game, with average payouts, features and graphics.
