Stinkin' Rich Slot Video - $20 Bet RETRIGGER - Winner's Choice 2!
The Winner's Choice 2 slot machine by IGT allows you to play up to 4 classic games at once and this time I chose Stinkin' Rich although Mystical Mermaid, Kitty Glitter, Coyote Moon, Fire Horse, and Fire Opals are all available. The games play just like they do in their stand-alone versions, and in the case of Stinkin' Rich, the goal is to win one of two bonuses with the primary bonus being "Key to Riches" which is triggered by landing bonus symbols on reels 1, 2, and 3 although they have to be on a line. You are awarded 5 free spins for each payline that contains those symbols, and being awarded 20 free spins isn't uncommon. Stinkin' Rich has stacked wilds in reels 2, 3, and 4 and having those 3 line up is where that Big Win or Jackpot is, or with the top symbol of "Mrs. Gotrocks" if you're really lucky to land her on a line over 5 reels! The second bonus is the "Trash for Cash" bonus which is triggered by landing bonus symbols on reels 3, 4, and 5 scattered in any position. You first pick a trash can for a multiplier, after which the sum of the remaining picks are revealed and multiplied by your pick for a final award. Multipliers can range from 2x to 5x and awards of 100 to 500 times your bet multiplier so if you're lucky and the machine gives you the opportunity to win the top award for this bonus and you pick perfectly, the best you can do is 25x your bet per game, or $125 for a $5 game bet, if I've done my higher math correctly. Note in Winner's Choice 2, you're playing essentially 4 $5 games at once, so the $125 limit still applies here.
So why play Winner's Choice 2 at all if you're essentially just grinding yourself out? Well, of course the primary answer is to have fun as playing 4 games at once can be a lot of fun! Although there is another reason although it is a bit of a long-shot: Randomly at the conclusion of a game you may be awarded the Mystery Bonus which allows you to spin a wheel for a free bonus game! What's cool is that you also have a chance to be awarded MORE than the standard amount of free games: for example with Kitty Glitter, you can be awarded the standard 15 games, but also 20 or 25 games! And unlike other games where being awarded extra spins is just like winning a second bonus game, with Kitty Glitter, it's exactly what you need for that Big Win as more spins in this game are extremely valuable based on the way the game plays- see this video to see why! https://thebigpayback.com/video/kitty-glitter-jackpot/
All in all, I'm nor sure if that's reason enough to play it, but it sure is enticing on some levels! As I recall, the original Winner's Choice also had progressives in the wheel spin and I'm not sure if this version always doesn't have them or just the particular version I played, but that would have been a nice touch! I can't help but feel IGT can turn this concept into a successful franchise with a little more work on the way the bonus would play: maybe next time, Enjoy!
