Few slots are as famous as Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches. In fact, this is the slot machine game which put Barcrest on the map.
The online slot machine game contains some of the most simplistic imagery around, but it is more than a few years old and remains a firm favourite in the hearts of online casino game lovers.
Look and feel
Irish luck the name of the game when it comes to the theme of the Rainbow Riches slot game. That theme is represented by a host of special symbols, some of which include golden coins, leprechauns, wishing wells and pots of gold (under rainbows), rather than the colourful high playing card symbols which make up the rest of the standard paying icons in this game.
The slot’s reels are neatly framed by a Celtic border, with the backdrop offering a plain sailing rainbow. As for the menu bar, players can expect the same basic wagers options which appear in nearly all Barcrest’s games.
All 20 of Rainbow Riches’ paylines can be altered by players, as can their line bets. These stem from 1p per line, up to £20 a line. That, in turn, gives the Rainbow Riches slot a wagering range of 1p per line per spin, up to £400 per spin.
When wagering with the maximum stake, players can hope to scrape together wins worth as much as 10,000 coins by landing 5 golden coin wilds on any active payline in the game.
Those golden coins do more than just offer the non-progressive jackpot. They also double up as wild symbols, which can substitute for all symbols save for the three bonus icons.
Road to Riches icons (leprechauns) can trigger a feature if 3 appear anywhere on the reels. In this bonus, players can spin a wheel to move along a golden path. They will pocket instant win prizes worth up to 500x their total bet until the collect sign appears.
Wishing Well symbols appearing 3 or more times on the reels will trigger a secondary feature. Players can use this click and win feature to select one of 3 wells to pocket an instant cash prize worth up to 500x their total bet.
Pots of Gold symbols can only appear on the second, third and fourth reels, and if they do so, a third and final feature is triggered. In this bonus, players will pocket a cash prize from either a bronze, silver or gold pot and once again, it has a cash prize worth up to 500x a player’s total stake up for grabs.
