Rainbow Riches: basic info

Rainbow Riches slot interface

Some slots simply have the ‘X’ factor which makes them a massive hit with players. Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches is one of those games.

Released in 2009, this 5-reel, 20-payline game has an Irish Leprechaun theme.

Its graphics are not outstanding, which is understandable given the age of the slot, but it has three interesting and potentially very rewarding bonus games that keep players coming back for more.

How To Play Rainbow Riches

Rainbow Riches is a delightfully simple slot to play. To start things off, you must select how many of the 20 paylines you want active. You’re able to choose any amount from 1 to 20.
Next, you decide how much to bet per payline. The range is £/€0.01 up to £/€25.00 (for 1 payline).

If playing all 20 paylines, the minimum bet is £/€0.20 and the maximum a hefty £/€500.

There are only ten symbols used. The low-value ones are 10, J, Q, K and A, with the ‘A’ paying out 150x for matching five on a payline. After that, the Rainbow Riches logo symbol is worth 250x and the wild is the highest-value symbol. It pays out 500x your line bet amount.

Riches await in the bonus rounds

Each of the remaining three symbols triggers one of Rainbow Riches bonus games. This is where the action kicks into gear:

  1. Road to Riches: If you land three or more leprechaun symbols in the base game, you enter the Road to Riches. This is an exciting bonus wheel game. You hit ‘Start’, and the wheel spins to determine how many steps you take on the Road to Riches. You continue spinning the wheel either until you reach the top of the road or stop on a ‘Collect’ position. The highest payout for this feature is 500x your stake
  2. Wishing Well: Three or more Wishing Well symbols opens up the Wishing Well bonus feature. This is the classic ‘Pick One’ game. You must select one of the three wells to reveal the win multiplier. The maximum for this feature is also 500x your stake, which if you were playing for £/€500, would be a cool £/€250,000
  3. Pots of Gold: The third bonus feature is triggered by landing three Pots of Gold symbols (they only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4). Once activated, various gold, silver and bronze pots spin around on the screen and an arrow points to one once they stop spinning, and your win multiplier is revealed. This, once again, can be up to 500x your stake

Conclusion

On the surface, Rainbow Riches looks like an ordinary slot, but this is a very fun and entertaining game.

It has a medium variance so you won’t win on every spin, but you don’t go too long without landing something either. It’s possible to win big in both the main game and the bonus rounds which keeps players excited on every spin.

Due to the huge success of this game, SG Interactive (Barcrest’s parent company) has released several spin-offs. There is also a Rainbow Riches MegaWays slot now available which we also highly recommend.
