Microgaming’s Wealth Spa Video Slot Review
November 9, 2012
The Wealth Spa video slot by Microgaming is based on a theme of luxury, but as a video slot, it has a ton of features when compared to other games in the genre. Wealth Spa uses a five-reel video slot format with 20 paylines. Players can choose coin sizes from $0.01 to $0.05, and you can bet up to 20 coins on each individual payline. This means that you can bet up to 400 coins at once for a maximum bet of $20 per spin. Talk about a luxury theme! However, the minimum bet is $0.01 per spin, so this is a great game for players of all stakes.
The Wealth Spa logo is wild in this game, and it will substitute for anything but the token symbols and the scatter symbols. Five of the Wealth Spa logo symbol on the same payline will get you a 5,000x line bet payout, and this is the biggest regular win in the game. The scatter symbols in this game give you payouts, but unlike most modern video slots, they are not the key to the bonus features. This is what sets Wealth Spa apart from most video slots available today.
For every token symbol you get on the reels, you are given a point. After you have accumulated enough tokens, you can choose to play a bonus round at any point in time. There are five different bonus games available. The Smoothie Bonus costs one token, and it gives you a pick-a-box style bonus game. The Hot Stone Bonus costs two tokens, and the bonus round is a three card monte type of game. You're allowed to pick two stones out of five to get a multiplier on your wins.
The Body Wax Bonus costs three tokens, and it's a funny twist on a pick-a-box style bonus round. The Bath Oil Bonus costs four tokens. This bonus game is a pick-a-box style game that involves bath oils, and you get to keep picking from the available bottles until you hit the "collect" bottle. Finally, the Massage Bonus round costs five tokens, but it gives you the chances for the biggest prizes. All five of these bonus rounds give you chances for big prizes, but you'll have to decide for yourself how to spend your tokens.
