“Stinkin’ Rich” is a slot where “IGT” seems to have experimented with a new structure to include a set of reels in a bow tie shape, in which the reel 3 has only three rows and all others have 5, a different slot in my opinion, although I'm still not sure I like it enough, mainly because I have the impression that our chances to form lines are reduced by the funnel formed by the central reel.
The number of paylines in this game is 100 which it raises the value of our bet to 100 credits per spin. “Stinkin' Rich” has also been equipped with stacked wilds feature, which I think would be quite useful if that happen more often.
On this slot, we will see three special symbols, the first one is the scatter, which generates instant payouts as stipulated on the paytable, but it does not trigger any special feature; as well as it is not very common to receive payments for this concept as I could see.
The following special symbol is “Key to Reaches,” which appears only on reels 1, 2, and 3; and it is responsible for triggering the free spins round; symbols must appear on the same active payline, and for each line formed with this symbol, the player will receive 5 free spins; in my case the least amount of simultaneous lines with this symbol has been 4, for a total of 20 free games. During this round, it has been provided a new set of symbols, but this is irrelevant as their rates remain the same.
Finally, we have the symbol “Trash for Cash” that appears on reels 3, 4, and 5, and which are responsible for giving an instant prize by getting 3 symbols on any position on said reels; awards are in a range between 6x and 40x your total bet, however, it seems that I personally have not had much luck triggering this feature.
As I have observed, hitting lines in this game depends on a high degree of obtaining wilds stacked on the first 3 reels, so sometimes you will achieve stimulating big wins, but in others you will be immersed in endless streaks of dead spins due to a decrease in these wilds, and this happens even during the free spins round.
Given this, and given the high cost of the bet of this game, I think, on this game, it is best to try luck by making a few turns and to leave in case of failure in the attempt; in case of getting a round of free spins, or some big win, this would be even a better motive to leave because the probability of preserving your winnings for more than another 100 spins is minimal in my opinion.
