Developed by Barcrest, Rainbow Riches has five reels and twenty paylines and has become a popular online slot game and is especially popular in the UK. Rainbow Riches has an Irish theme and has great bonus features and the possibility of a high win is good. There is a jackpot of five hundred coins, which may seem low, but the bonus features make up for it and players are able to win during these bonus features.
Symbols and Bonus Rounds
Rainbow Riches has bright and colourful symbols and includes a wild symbol, leprechaun, wishing well and a pot of gold. There are also playing cards and these are the lower paying symbols. The graphics although not animated, are of a high quality and players will enjoy the bright colours and fun symbols. The wild symbol is the leprechaun and can appear anywhere on the reels and will substitute for all the other symbols to create a winning combination. Players who are able to land on five wild symbols will be rewarded with the jackpot of five hundred coins. There is no scatter symbol in Rainbow Riches, but there are three bonus symbols which will activate the bonus rounds. These are the leprechaun, wishing well and the pot of gold.
The wishing well bonus round is a ‘pick me’ style round and players that land on three or more of the wishing wells will have to choose a wishing well to reveal a cash prize, the more wishing wells that appear on the reels the higher the prize will be and players that are lucky enough to land on five wishing wells may have the chance to win the jackpot.
The next bonus round is the leprechauns and players who land on three or more leprechauns will move on to the ‘road to riches’ where players can spin a win and continue moving up which will once again lead to bigger wins for those landing on four or five leprechauns and the chance of winning the jackpot is good.
The pot of gold is the final bonus round and is a popular feature of Rainbow Riches. If the pot of gold appears on reels two, three or four players move on to a spinning circle of bronze, silver and gold pots and in the centre is a dancing leprechaun. The bronze and silver pots do pay out but it is the gold pot that will win the jackpot.
