Richie in Vegas
Travel to the city of glitz and glamour on the slot from Iron Dog Studio and join Richie in Vegas for a lucky night on the strip to score wins in excess of 2,000 times your stake. The Wheel Of Chance will be your guide throughout your slotting session to award expanding wilds, random wilds, cash prizes and the free spins feature.
Richie in Vegas is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can join the Vegas-hopeful on desktop or mobile from 0.20 to 50 credits per spin. The highly volatile game (5/5) has an RTP of 96.24%.
A colourful background with neon-lit palm trees, playing cards and casino chips convey the typical Vegas cliché – bold, bright and cheerful. The perfect atmosphere for a night at the tables or slot. Traditional pay symbols such as bells, sevens and BARs populate the reels. A relaxed yet cheerful acoustic soundtrack provides the fitting audio.
Open the game to find a pair of dice, casino chips as well as single, double and triple BARs at the low end of the paytable, awarding 1.5x to 4x your stake for a five of a kind. They are followed by bells, sevens, diamonds and Richie at the high level, paying 5x to 20x your bet when five land on a line.
During the free spins feature, Richie turns into his flashy, Vegas alter-ego Jackpot Richie to award a win of 40,000 coins when five land scattered or on a line. In real money, it is 2,000x your stake. The game has also a range of wilds as well as a single scatter symbol – Wheel of Chance – that appears on reel three only.
Richie in Vegas Slot Features
The game is packed to the brim with features that reflect perfectly an evening out on the famous Vegas strip. In normal play, you will benefit from single wilds. While both will perform the usual substitution duties, they can be enhanced to expanding wilds in the free spins which will see them stretch to cover the entire reel. None of the wilds can substitute for the Jackpot Richie symbols. A full screen of expanded wilds will pay a handsome 400x your stake.
Key to all features on Richie in Vegas is the Wheel of Chance, which can land on reel three only in the base game and will activate after every free spin. When it appears, it will pop-out and spin once to award a prize or simply nothing when it lands on the “X”. Win evaluations are done only after any potential modifier from the wheel has been applied. After awarding the prize, the Wheel of Chance symbol turns itself into a wild symbol for the current spin.

The Wheel of Chance will activate after each spin to award a prize or nothing when it lands on “X”. It will start as Winner Wheel and landing on the upgrade symbol will see it enhancing first to the VIP Wheel on stage two and the second time to the High-Roller Wheel on stage three.
Richie himself can play a significant role during the free spins feature. He will change into his Vegas-attire and appear as Jackpot Richie. Hitting five scattered on the screen or on a pay line will award a jackpot win of 40,000 coins or 2,000x your stake.
I had a hunch that Iron Dog Studios is upping their game when they released Viking Wilds as it presented a leap in volatility, entertainment factor and win potential compared to their previous creations. I am pleased to see that they are continuing on the upward trajectory as Richie in Vegas is a superb slot creation with ample features, modifiers and the chance to hit big wins.
