If you are a fan of online slots, gigantic jackpots that can reach £250,000,000, and enjoy playing a variety of bonus rounds with frequent payouts then look no further, Rainbow Riches is the slot for you!
The Rainbow Riches brand of games started life in the mid 2000’s as fixed odds betting terminals, and it wasn’t long before every bookmaker, casino, and pub were filled with the famous words and jingle “Off we go” from the lucky little leprechaun. In 2009 the first of the Rainbow Riches titles was released online bringing with it an increased chance of winning in comparison to its land based cousins. Since the initial online launch developers Barcrest have gone on to create over 18 derivations of this immensely popular online slot game! The most recent has evolved once again and taken on a new form as an instant win title called Rainbow Riches Leapin’ Leprechauns.
The online release for home based computers, mobiles and tablets have made the game even more accessible to players, with the ability to play anywhere, anytime, further contributing to making the brand one of the UK’s most favourite slots.
So why has this series become so popular? Why does IGT call this a killer slot?
In short Rainbow Riches is the perfect cocktail with all the right ingredients. First impressions are often judged by the theme and this brand doesn’t disappoint. Unsurprisingly set in the green meadows of Ireland, the games all offer crisp colourful graphics reflecting the colours of the rainbow, that are unobtrusive, simple to understand, yet pleasing to the eye. The symbols featured on the reels include sparkling pots of gold sitting under the rainbow, leprechauns, gold coins, wishing wells, mushrooms and free spin icons along with the classic letters A, K, Q, J and the number 10. The mythical, cheeky yet helpful Leprechaun adds great character to the game and is a key feature in a number of the bonus rounds.
The sound is magical, activating on each spin rather than a constant background loop, and alerts you to winning pay-lines and bonus rounds, although if you’re not a fan a quick flick of the switch will turn the effects off.
Gameplay + Features
Most of the Rainbow Riches games are 5 reel, 20 lines with plenty of bonus rounds waiting to be played. Match 3 of a certain symbol and you could be whisked away to make your way down the roads to riches to collect the 500x multiplier waiting at the end of the rainbow, attempt to stop the spinning gold pot to earn an equally high jackpot or picking magical mushrooms to reveal either multipliers or better yet, fairies that will help you further increase your winnings. One of our favourite titles Pick N’ Mix even lets you choose which bonus rounds you want to play for and the ability to decide the frequency of them as well!
Whether you just want to play for fun and stake just a few pence, or are a high roller playing £1000 a spin the games offer flexibility to cater for all types of player. There is also a useful autoplay feature of up to 25 spins found in some versions of the game.
