The Gourmet Ranch Riches mobile slot is not for everyone. But if you love your gambling games to be full of challenges, but little risk, we can’t think of a better one.
We know we are going out on a limb by saying that we like the Gourmet Ranch Riches slot. Because it’s only a ‘slot’ in the sense that you press a button and, depending on the combination of symbols, you win cash.
But we already know the traditionalists out there will spit in our general direction for liking this. That’s cool. We understand. In which case, head to the Amazon Queen slot or the Miss White slot for some more hardcore spins.
However, those of you who are looking for something that is a cross between a social game, mobile game, and slot machine, and who may enjoy slots like Energoonz, then read on.
When you first load it you might:
As for the second point, don’t worry. You shouldn’t be. It’s still just a spin and win game.
All the bits about levelling up, collecting food ingredients for recipes, and collecting achievements is… decoration. Levelling up doesn’t change how much you can win, but it does change the background image and the symbols.
So eventually you’ll have a pick of 50 different ‘levels’ – you can grow crops of wheat, tomato and beef, or dinosaurs, zombies and leprechauns.
It’s these little touches that make it fun. Each little symbol moves, and if you zoom out, you’ll notice the background can change quite a lot depending which level you are on.
It keeps it fresh and interesting.
We played the Gourmet Ranch Riches slot machine for close to 5 hours and… walked away, more or less, with the same amount that we walked in.
The reason for this is simple. Each time you win, you crop board symbol expands by 2, starting with 13 symbols all the way to 25 symbols.
On each win, you get a mini free go. Like you do with NetEnt’s brilliant Reel Rush slot, which we equally loved. So it keeps you playing, and your wallet topped up.
More importantly, if you unlock the whole board you’ll get the free spins.
These unlock more often than you think and whilst most of the time you end up with about 20 times to 30 times your bet, we’ve had some brilliant rounds where we got 80 to 90 times our bet.
The reason for this is that the truly great wins come once you have 25 symbols AND a possible 10x multiplier.
We write about how this works in our Gourmet Ranch Riches video slot features below. But for a game that is generally there, just to keep you playing, that’s some impressive numbers, especially the 10,000 times your bet on 15+ symbol wins.
Whether you play to unlock backgrounds, or for the joy of the ranch, this is truly a well made mobile casino slot.

Anyways pay & expanding reels: Payout awards apply to chains of adjacent matching symbols. On each win, your crop patch of 13 symbols will expand by two, until you have a patch big enough for 25 symbols.
On each expand, you get more symbols, and all at no extra cost to you.
The really interesting numbers start to get 10 symbol wins, as that is an instant 50x your bet. 15+ symbols is 10,000 times your bet, so you see why opening the board is a must.
Collect food items to level up: Basically, on each spin, you collect food items. Collect enough and you level up. There are 50 levels in total.
What does that mean? Just that as you level up you open up different backgrounds, crops and recipes. You also unlock achievements.
Does this make any difference to your wins and gambling? Absolutely not. But we like the dinosaur and crazy leprechaun level ourselves.
Free spins and multipliers: We mention that on every win you get two extra crop patches and an extra spin. If you manage to unlock the whole farm (25 symbols), you'll win 6 free spins.
May not sound like much, but during these free spins you have the whole board open as standard, plus a multiplier that increases on each successive win, up to an impressive 10x. We usually rarely go higher than 10x.
But, more importantly, if you get three successive wins in a row, you start collecting extra free spins.
The most we've played is 31. We know this because you can get the whole stats of your gameplay whenever you want.
Gourmet Ranch Riches mobile slot is not for everyone, yet we couldn't help but find ourselves playing for far longer than we thought we would, or could with our budget.
You'll come back to this mobile casino game when you've had a bad round on a slot that isn't paying out, and you need cheering up.
Not only will Ranch Riches keep your wallet level, but once in a while, it might also surprise you.
