As far as Irish themed slot games go, Rainbow Riches is definitely at the top of the pecking order. It has proven so successful that a sequel and a scratch version of the game now exist. Rainbow Riches was developed by Barcrest and features a rather generous leprechaun.
The slot is made up of 5 reels and 20 pay lines. The regular symbols are covered by gold edged poker values which run from 10-A. There is also a Rainbow Riches logo symbol which is the highest paying base symbol. However, the main draw to this slot is definitely its bonus features. Rainbow Riches has 4 great bonus symbols and 3 bonus games.
The wild is easy enough to spot, as it features WILD in bold blue letters which stand in front of a gold coin. It can be used to substitute for any of the poker value symbols but cannot replace any of the other bonus symbols. The wild can also create its own winning combination by landing 3 or more on a pay line.
The other bonus symbols and the ones which will unlock the game’s coveted bonus features. First up is the Road to Riches bonus. This is triggered by the landing 3 of the road to riches symbol. First off, spin the wheel to decide how many steps on the path that you’ll get to take. You’ll keep on spinning and generating prizes until the game displays ‘collect.
Three wishing well symbols on an enabled pay line triggers the Wishing Well feature. This is a pick me round, where you’ll pick symbols to reveal bonus multipliers.
The Pots of Gold symbols is only displayed on reels 2, 3 and 4. Land a Pots of Gold symbol on all 3 to access this round. The screen will display 3 pots of gold which spin around the screen. Whichever one that the arrow points to is yours and you’ll collect the bonus multiplier that it reveals.
