Rainbow Riches is one of the most famous and popular of all the online slots games, so much so that it has even made the transition into physical media with a range of traditional slots games inspired by the original.
But will this game bring you the luck of the Irish, or will your pot of gold be empty? Let’s find out!
One of the first things you may notice about this slot is that it’s very traditional. It’s designed to mimic a physical slot machine quite closely, so if this harks back to your younger days at the pub or casino, it could be a big plus. However, don’t expect a huge amount of exciting twists or gimmicks, because it’s all quite straightforward. This game was first released in 2009 by Barcrest, but has since been bought by Scientific Games, and is operated by that organisation.
One of the most famous and most loved parts of this game is the visuals and sound. While it’s not sophisticated by modern slot standards, it all fits together well and never fails to work its charms on players, bringing Irish legend to life with four-leaf clovers, leprechauns and wishing wells making up the wilds and scatters. Combined with the lush Irish landscape, the bright arch of the rainbow and the jolly repetitive Irish jig, it’s easy to get lost in this game. This is one of those games that’s all about the bonus rounds, so you’ll be trying to get there as soon as possible. The minimum bet is 0.04 credits, the maximum bet is 400 credits, and the RTP is an average 95%. But don’t worry, there’s more gold where that came from!
Just like traditional slots this game really thrives on its bonus rounds, of which there are three. The Roads to Riches bonus sets you on a literal road that is paved with bonus multipliers and a wheel to spin, which decides how many steps on the road you move along. You can keep going until your wheel spins onto the ‘collect’ spot, picking up ever higher multipliers as you go. You can activate this bonus by landing three Leprechaun scatters on your reels.
The other two bonus rounds are also multiplier rounds. One is triggered when you land three wishing well scatters on your reels, and simply gives you three wells to choose from, revealing a multiplier under whichever one you choose. The third bonus round sends you to meet the Leprechaun, who has pots of gold spinning above his head, with one of them being randomly selected and revealing yet another multiplier. As we said, these aren’t complicated mini-games that you need to beat or keep track of, but what we will say is that this gives you access to some truly huge jackpots if you choose wisely. No wonder it’s so popular with veteran gamers!
Beloved by players worldwide for its colourful visuals and great prizes, even non-gamers will recognise its ever-present Leprechaun mascot and jaunty Irish jingle. A riot of Irishness with some serious chances of big wins!
