Rainbow Riches Slot
Rainbow Riches is a 5-reel, max 20-pay line slot from Barcrest. It's another in the long line of slots that feature Leprechauns, rainbows and pots of gold. Think Irish Eyes I and II from NextGen Gaming, Lucky Leprechaun from Microgaming and Leprechaun's Luck by GTS. The symbols used in Rainbow Riches are just as you'd expect: Wishing wells, pots of gold and the big-eared, big-bearded lucky Leprechaun himself. Able back up is provided by playing card values ten to ace, plus a few extra special symbols.
You should not find playing this game too taxing. You select your stake-per-line from 0.01 all the way up to 25.00, and the number of lines you want in play from one to the maximum of twenty. Your final total wager is displayed at the bottom of the screen, and is these two numbers crunched together. When you're ready to test your luck, hit the flashing green spin button. To win one of the payouts available, you simply need to land three or more (two of some symbols) identical symbols in sequence on an active pay line.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence at double your stake-per-line for two Wild or Rainbow Riches symbols. The jackpot is 5,000x for a row of five Wild symbols on an active pay line.
Speaking of that Wild symbol – which is a golden Leprechaun coin – that symbols subs for all other symbols except for the three bonus symbols described below.
The first bonus symbol is that winking Leprechaun 'Road to Riches' symbol. Three or more anywhere on the reels activates the 'Road to Riches' bonus game. In this game a path towards the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is displayed, with a long line of prize multipliers positioned ahead of you. You spin the 'steps wheel' to see how far each spin will take you along the road. Spin 'collect' and your journey ends. If you make it all the way, you land a 200x prize multiplier.
The second bonus symbol is the 'Wishing Well' symbol. Again, three or more anywhere on the reels initiates the 'Wishing Well' bonus game. Select one of the wishing well symbols to see the prize that lurks behind it. The maximum you can win is 500x your total stake.
The final bonus symbol is the 'Pots of Gold' symbol. You need three or more anywhere on the reels to initiate the 'Pots of Gold' bonus round. Twelve pots – five bronze, four silver and three gold – are spun around by the Leprechaun. When they come to a stop, the nearest pot to a pointer will open to reveal a tasty cash prize. Obviously, golden pots hold the most cash!
Rainbow Riches is a truly classic online slot, and possibly the cream of the crop (or the Guinness!) when it comes to Irish-themed online slots. Why not take it for a few spins and see if a little of that Irish luck will rub off on you?
