Sometimes there are slots that come across as being so utterly bonkers that you need to explore them for yourselves – if only to scratch the itch.
That’s what we have in front of us with the Rainbow Riches: Cluster Magic slot game that, by the name alone, gives us hope for an incredibly entertaining experience.
The Rainbow Riches series operates in a unique way, and with Cluster Magic, we have an 8×8 block on the screen that greets players from the word go. The payouts come from a Cluster mechanic, ensuring that all former knowledge about reels and paylines are thrown squarely out of the window.
There are plenty of themed symbols to enjoy including the coloured gemstones, toadstool and leprechaun.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is an important factor in the majority of slot games and that’ll be true for those that play Rainbow Riches: Cluster Magic slot game, too. The RTP for this one comes in at around 96.34%, and while that may be hovering around the average mark within the industry, the medium to high volatility should ensure there’s a lot of unpredictability in the air for this one.
Punters can put down a minimum stake of $€£0.20 before riding up to a maximum of $€£50, although the latter of those two figures has been disputed. From there, you’ve got the small matter of potentially winning 12,500x your initial stake – no big deal, of course.
The colourful Irish theming is pretty charming and even though some will suggest this is ‘visually’ a bit all over the place, we really appreciate and enjoy what they’ve attempted to do with Cluster Magic.
Cascading Reels – after a winner is formed the successful symbols are removed from play, with the process continuing as long as you are able to secure wins.
Free Games – landing six or more cascades in a row will ensure you activate the Free Games feature. You will then spin a bonus wheel that decides which extra is live during the eight free spins that follow.
Persisting Wilds – two wilds are added on each successful cascade, and you can land up to six cascades on a spin meaning up to 12 possible wilds.
Infinity Games – each free spin starts with a 1x multiplier, and if you land a winning combo, that’ll increase by 1x – with up to 250 free spins and 10x to be won.
Wild Magic – on each free spin between four and 16 wilds are added, and if you get on a run of up to six or more successive cascades, four more free spins are added.
Rainbow Riches: Cluster Magic slot game is a fun entry into this franchise in many ways. It’s colourful, there are plenty of entertaining bonus features and the potential winnings are strong.
Plus, it always helps when the theme stays consistent.
