Rainbow Riches

Released by Barcrest in 2009, Rainbow Riches has evolved into a classic slot game based on the popular theme of Leprechauns and their legendary 'pot o' gold’. The slot has an RTP (return-to-player) of 95.0% and a low to medium volatility. The success of this slot over the subsequent years has led to eight Rainbow Riches sequels at last count: Pick & Mix, Free Spins, Fortune Favours, Home Sweet Home, Leprechaun's Gold, Leapin' Leprechauns, Drops of Gold and Reels of Gold.

Rainbow Riches: Gameplay

Experience the slot on a 5x3 (reels/rows) play area with up to 20 variable paylines, offering the chance to collect up to 25 000 coins. Playing Rainbow Riches couldn't be easier.

You start by choosing the amount of lines that you want to play with, which you can vary from 1 to 20. After that, decide on a bet per line, ranging from $0.01 to as much as $25. Your 'TOTAL BET' displayed will be the equivalent of the bet per line multiplied by the number of lines.

When you're good to go, hit the green 'SPIN' button to get the reels spinning. The 'TOTAL BET' can be adjusted after each spin. Remember that the minimum total bet per spin is $0.01, while the maximum total bet per spin is $500.

While the number of paylines that you activate is your choice, it is recommended that you play with all of them for the highest chance of winning.

Any 'WIN' that you may have collected on a spin is displayed in the corresponding box adjacent to the 'SPIN' button. The value of possible winning combinations is provided in the Paytable.

Rainbow Riches: Features

Even with the relatively standard graphics and sound effects, the slot immerses you in the strange world of a pipe-smoking Leprechaun who welcomes you on start-up. Like the gameplay, the artwork takes a simpler approach with a rainbow to the back of the reels, casting a purple hue over the Emerald Isle landscape below. The classic five royal flush poker symbols (10 through to ace) represent the standard-paying end. The top-paying symbol is the gold coin wild, discussed later, and the Rainbow Riches logo symbol that pays out up to 12.5x total bet. The Wishing Well, Pots of Gold and Road to Riches symbols are used to trigger their respective features that can reward up to 500x your total bet.

The Wild Symbols

Since Rainbow Riches is a classic slot, you'll find a version of the iconic wild symbol illustrated by a gold coin. This coin is very precious, as it can substitute for any of the other symbols when appearing on any reel. The exceptions are the Wishing Well, Pots of Gold or Road to Riches symbols. Another fun thing about this symbol is that it can combine in sets of 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline to reward up to 0.1x, 3x, 10x or 25x total bet.

Bonus Features of Rainbow Riches

Arguably, the best thing about Rainbow Riches is that it has not one but three terrific bonus features:

Pots of Gold
The Pots of Gold symbol is just that - a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Trigger the feature with three scatter symbols on the second, third and fourth reels. In this feature game, a gold, silver and bronze pot twirl on the screen until they come to a stop with an arrow pointing towards the pot that you have won. The value of your win will range from 50x total bet to 500x total bet.

The Wishing Well
The Wishing Well symbol is a second scatter symbol that unlocks the corresponding feature in sets of three or more. This symbol appears as a classic image of a wishing well made from stone and wood. The mechanics of this feature couldn't be any simpler because all you need to do is pick and click from amongst the wishing wells presented. Your prize will be revealed that can range from 2x to 500x total bet.

Road to Riches
Finally, the Road to Riches symbol is a third scatter that unlocks the corresponding feature. The symbol appears as a winking Leprechaun image, encased within a golden frame. When three or more appear, then the feature is unlocked. You'll then be prompted to spin a wheel, which will determine your number of steps up the cash path. There are seven possible outcomes: 1 to 6 steps or 'COLLECT.' The last possible outcome will end the feature without a win, while the rest will progress you through until the endpoint that you've won the maximum prize of 500x total bet, or land on the 'COLLECT' position.
