This game takes us to the great American plains, where bison, eagle and cougar are at home. It’s not the first slot to bring us a wild west theme that showcases the wild nature. But the background looks great and the soundtrack is atmospheric. That’s more than can be said of many similar slots.
The symbols on the reels are crisp and well-rendered, even if they are a little unexciting. The low-value symbols show us the 10 to A in a wild-west-inspired style. The high-value symbols are all animals you might expect to see in such a landscape. They include the eagle, of course, the wolf, cougar, a ram and the bison.
Whilst hardly extraordinary and nowhere near on par with what Red Tiger is capable of, the slot does look good in its own right.
The eagle is the most valuable symbol, paying 20x our stake for 5 of a kind. The bison pays about 12x our stake for such a win. Wolf, ram and cougar follow far behind.
You can play this game from 0.20 to 40.00 per spin, though this can be adjusted by your casino.
The base game comes with one random feature. When you spin away, the shadow of an eagle flying far above my sweep across the reels. It will leave behind mystery symbols that turn into a high-value symbol, hopefully also leaving behind decent wins.
This feature may appear a little more often during the Eagle Spins.
The Eagle Spins are the free spins in this game. Landing three Eagle Spins scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger 10 free spins. Indeed, this may be made a little easier when two scatters are already on the reels. They then lock in place for another spin, hopefully catching a third scatter.
During the Eagle Spins the Eagle’s Shadow can appear more often, turning random symbols into one kind of high-value symbol. You could also end up with a handful of dead spins and hardly any wins at all since there is really nothing much else happening here.
The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) of Eagle Riches is 95.68%, which is underwhelming at best. The slot tends to be of medium volatility but can swing towards high volatility as well. As it stands, we were wondering where the slot got its name from. Sure, there is an eagle on the reels and the shadow of one triggers the most rewarding feature. But where are the ‘riches’ the slot is named for?
We certainly didn’t see them. In fact, you might feel a little lost in the wilderness with this game. You might enjoy the view for a little while, but ultimately you will want to go home again because this isn’t really what you came here for.
Truth be told, after a while this slot became tedious to play and at no point did we manage to win anything that made us feel as if we wanted to continue playing. The maximum payout is 2,412x our stake in this game. But you’d either have to be lucky to get there quickly or you need to be as stubborn as a bison to wait for it to happen eventually.
