Rainbow Riches Slot Review
Rainbow Riches from Barcrest and Scientific Games is one of the most well known and popular slots online. It pretty much features on every casino, slot and bingo brand. The game has also gone on to inspire a sequel of slots, scratchcards and a slingo game. There’s even a bingo room based on the original slot.
How To Play Rainbow Riches
Rainbow Riches is a 5 reel, 3 row and 20 payline slot. Wagering starts at just 1p a spin. By adjusting the number of lines and coin the wagering can be increased up to £500. This upper limit may vary from site to site. There’s no autoplay options but you can switch off the sound.
The game itself has an Irish theme. A lucky leprechaun is basically hoping to find the gold at the end of the rainbow – the rainbow riches! The leprechaun, wilds, wishing well and pots of gold are the high paying symbols on the slot. Five of a kind for wilds will pay x25 whilst five Rainbow Riches symbols will pay x12.50. The low paying symbols on the slot comprise playing card symbols: 10, J, Q, K and A.
Features & Bonus Round
Players can enjoy three features on Rainbow Riches: Road To Riches, Wishing Well and Pots Of Gold. Get three or more Leprechaun symbols to activate Road To Riches. During this feature you spin the wheel to progress along the cash path. The round stops when the wheel lands on ‘Collect’. The maximum award can be 500x the total bet. The Wishing Well feature is triggered when three or more Wishing Well symbols appear on the reels. Players select one of the wells to determine a muliplier win of between x2 and x500.
Finally the Pots Of Gold feature activates when three scattered symbols appear on the reels. Three pots – gold, silver and bronze – will spin around the screen. When they come to a stop one pot will be selected to determine the prize. This will be between x50 and x500 of the total bet. Note that the Pots Of Gold symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
You can’t argue with the longevity appeal of Rainbow Riches. Like other popular slots such as Starburst and Fluffy Favourites it stands out because of it’s simplicity. It has an old Las Vegas feel to it’s gameplay and we think that this is also why it has mass appeal. Interestingly, like the Fluffy sequels, the original game always trumps the various other Rainbow Riches variants. We enjoy playing Rainbow Riches and find that it’s always the perfect fall back when picking a slot to play.
