Finer Reels of Life Microgaming Online Pokie

March 26, 2016


Australian players wager at online casinos because it is a lot of fun, but there is also the hope that they hit a big payout and acquire some of the luxuries of life. It is hardly surprising therefore that there are a large number of online pokies with the theme of riches and elegant lifestyles. Microgaming is a leading software provider to Australian online casinos like Casino Mate and Royal Vegas and has several such pokies in its portfolio. Finer Reels of Life is one of them.

Finer Reels of Life obviously denotes the finer things of life as is evident from the high paying symbols in the video pokie. They are diamond, champagne, whisky and cigars, wine and cheese and coffee and chocolates. The usual playing card icons are the low paying symbols. Finer Reels of Life is based on a popular pokies template that was introduced by Microgaming in Thunderstruck II and has been used in high profile games like Immortal Romance and Playboy. The Finer Reels of Life logo is the wild symbol and acts as a 2x multiplier as well. The golden star is the scatter symbol. The online pokie has the 243 ways to win paylines structure in a 5×3 reel set.

The gaming features have been visually recreated to match with the theme. The Wild Celebration feature is triggered randomly and turns up to five reels wild with the uncorking of champagne bottles for each reel. As in the other pokies of this type, there is a set of free spins features that are played sequentially and offer increasingly attractive benefits. The set begins with Coffee and Chocolate and it awards 10 free spins in which all payouts are multiplied five times. The Wine and Cheese feature is available from the fifth trigger. It awards 15 free spins with the Wild Wine feature. The Wild Wine symbol can appear on reel 3 and randomly turns other symbols into wilds. The third feature in the progression is Whisky and Cigars, which starts from the 10th trigger. It awards 20 free spins with the Burning Wilds feature. Burning Wilds can convert symbols into multipliers with values 2x or 3x. The last feature in the set is Champagne and Diamonds. This comes into play only from the 15th trigger of the bonus feature and so you have to persist in order to reap its benefits. You will be awarded 25 free spins with the Rolling Reels feature. In this feature consecutive wins successively increase the multiplier till it reaches 5x.
