Scientific Games’ Rainbow Riches slot is a game in that well-trodden track of Irish themed slots and comes with a trio of easy to activate bonus games, with a distinct flavour of the beloved fruit machine game about it.
There is a big pantheon of slots dedicated to the Emerald Isle, and this game is probably the most famous of them all, so I had to investigate why this is such a popular member of the green slot brigade. This game is up there with the Foxin’ Wins slot machine and Gonzo Quest in that Super Popular category.
Let’s head to the Blarney Stone and find out what it’s all about, shall we?
Brassy bold and bright, Rainbow Riches comes with a Road to Riches, Wishing Well and Pot of Gold bonus games to give you a taste of the Leprechaun’s famed gold at the end of the rainbow.
A parade of bright colours like the Berryburst slot from netEnt, Rainbow Riches has a massive bending rainbow stretching over the reels and a decorative Celtic style golden frame to contain the reels. You are going to need your sunnies, and I don’t hear that much when I visit the Isle.
Well, I guess its no surprise to see those kind of symbols, so commonly found in Celtic themed games on the reels.
The graphics are high quality and the background sounds are a perfect fit with the upbeat tones of Irish themed music. In short, it’s a right craic!
Rainbow Riches is played on 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 perky pay-lines. This being one of the most famous Scientific Games slots of all time, this is a tried and tested formula which has proven very popular.
The slot’s Wild is a golden coin with the profile of a Leprechaun, which substitutes for all icons except the bonus icons. The face of a grinning Leprechaun is the Road to Riches icon, the Wishing Well symbol is a well and Pots of Gold icon is a cauldron of gold at the end of the rainbow. All good!
The lower value icons are the Ace through 10 of the card deck in bright colours in Celtic style fonts.
Rainbow Riches comes with a trio of Bonus games to spice up the game.
Road to Riches
So let’s get you on The Road to Somewhere shall we? This bonus game is triggered by landing three of the Leprechaun icons. Now you’ll be literally making a little journey on your wee road there. There’s a wheel to spin, numbered 1 to 6. Spin the wheel and travel the path.
The path features different multipliers you could win when you spin the wheel to progress. The final multiplier you land on will be awarded to you. Beware; you could land “Collect” in which case your journey in this mode comes to an abrupt end.
The Wishing Well Bonus is very straight forward. Land a trio of the Well icons and you activate the bonus game. Select one of the well icons that activated this game and a multiplier will be revealed and gifted to you.
Pots of Gold
The Pots of Gold Bonus brings the gold-loving Leprechaun into centre stage. Land three of the Pots of Gold icons on reels 2, 3 and 4 and find yourself in the middle of a magical scene. There are 12 pots of gold of different values circling our generous and magical wee fella: the Leprechaun. You’ll win the pot that stops at the bottom of the circle with its featured multiplier.
This game is graphically sharp and loaded with three creative bonus features. The Road to Riches feature can land you up to x500 your bet on a lucky day, as does the Wishing Well and Pots of Gold bonus game. With those numbers at play and with an RTP of 95%- it’s no surprise that Rainbow Riches is a the most popular Irish slot of all time. As some politician once said, its the game play!
