High Society is just what it sounds like, a game that’s going to focus on the life of rich people. It’s not as much about the people that are considered high society, as it is a luxury themed game where you have as symbols various expensive objects that you couldn’t afford normally, things like private jets or yachts, among other things. This is also a slot machine that comes to us via Microgaming. Up to 25 active lines will be present on the 5 reels of High Society. You can get a jackpot of $30,000 from the regular combinations, while keeping in mind that multipliers of up to 10x are available during certain free spins. Besides the free spins, and the scatters that will trigger them, you’re also going to get wild reels sometimes, or regular wilds most of the time.
Playing with the maximum wager will require that you invest $250 for every single round that you play. The game doesn’t force you to wager that much though, and you can decrease both the number of lines and the line bet as you want to. You can use between 1 and 20 coins for each line, with the denominations ranging from $0.01 to $0.50. Placing a wager of up to $10 per line is possible, with the minimum being at just $0.01.
The theme might refer to the high society, but you don’t get a look at its members, only at their expensive toys. It’s a pretty regular luxury themed game in that regard, since it has the same type of symbols as most slots in its category. The images that are shown in the symbols start off with the one showing Euro bills in a money clip, continue with the game logo, and then you get private aircraft, huge yachts, a limousine, gold bars, a briefcase with money, silver bars and a money bag. Quality wise, I think that Microgaming did alright here. You’re seeing a large city in the background, the kind of place where high society tends to live, while the reels have a gold border and show only related symbols. It’s a nice touch from a developer that too often resorts to Royal cards for its lower tier icons. All in all, the design is one of the things that doesn’t take away from the game, and actually even adds a little bit. It’s not the best looking luxury themed game that you will see in this industry though.
The wild symbol is one of the available features, but it’s not the most attractive one that you will see here. Still, from time to time you will find it on the reels 1 or 5, and from that position it can be included in any combination that is forming. It can take the place of another symbol, which you need in that exact position where the wild appeared. It will not take the place of a scatter symbol. As for the scatter, this is the symbol that offers the most in this game, at least when it comes to features. Its payout, of up to $25,000, is offered when you get five such symbols anywhere on the five reels and it is the second best prize of the game. Having three or more scatters in view will give you a feature with free spins, in addition to the prize I mentioned previously. You have a bonus choice to make, between the free spins which have super wild reels, and the ones which have super multipliers. If you choose the Super Wild Reels bonus, then you get 10 to 20 free spins (depending on the triggering symbols), with up to three wild reels present during each round. The middle three reels are the ones that can be turned into wilds. If a scatter symbol lands on the first or fifth reels, then that reel is also turned into a wild. If you get the scatter on those two reels, then the free spins are retriggered with another 10 rounds. The other choice is the one with the Super Multiplier. This one will have a fixed number of free spins, 10 of them. Landing a scatter on the reel 1 or 5 will increase the multiplier of the free spins. Depending on the number of triggering scatters, you start with a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x (for 3, 4 or 5 symbols). With the help of new scatters, you can get to multipliers of 6x or 10x at most. You can also retrigger the free spins, with the two scatters on reels 1 and 5.
The best payout comes via a regular symbol, the one with the Private Jet, which can reward you with up to $30,000 during the regular spins. During certain types of free spins, this prize can get to a value of $300,000, thanks to the large multipliers allowed there. It’s a game which has a good RTP, of 96.80%, which gives it a big advantage over most slot machines that sport the same theme.
With a high RTP, with exciting features and quality graphics, High Society does more than enough to become a favorite for many players.
