New Year’s Riches Slots
We cannot think of a better way to celebrate New Year’s than Great Gatsby style with gold champagne and fireworks. The presentation of this New Year’s themed slot is remarkable, with fireworks decorating a night sky over a cityscape, the reels are rimmed in Art Deco style with thin gold lines with the words “New Year’s Riches” at the top. The symbols are well chosen, representing the most recognizable landmarks around the world.
