Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold
If you’ve ever played Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches, or Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix on Mega Reel, then you’ll also love this Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold slot game. It takes their much-loved and popular theme but turns it on its head, with more twists and turns than its predecessors.
About the Developer
If you’re a seasoned slot gamer then you’ll no doubt have played on Barcrest’s games – they filled British casinos and pubs back in their heyday from 1968 when they were founded. The secret to their longevity is the fact they try to stay ahead of the curve, innovating and changing with the times. They were also bought out by IGT in 1998, then Scientific Gaming in 2011. With multiple games you can find more here.
About the Game
When you start the game you’ll notice that this game isn’t set up like their other Rainbow Riches slot games: for starters, you’ve got two sets of reels. A five reel, four row set and then a five reel, 12 row set of reels. Across the reels you’ll find all the classic Irish-themed symbols, with four-leaf clovers, horseshoes, harps, toadstools, and rainbows, along with the regular playing card suits.
The highest-value symbols are the toadstools and the harp – both paying out x200 for matching five on a payline. The fairy is your best friend in this game, as she offers up lots of mini features in the base game.
* Super stacked wilds – this happens when the fairy waves her wand at the reels and will turn one or more reels into stacked wilds with rainbow riches symbols.
* Magic wilds – these appear the same on both reel sets, locking into position and then turning wild.
* Wild burst – butterflies appear on the reels, landing and transforming into wilds.
* Wishing well bonus – this eliminates all of the lower value symbols, turning them into wishing wells, and then into higher value symbols.
* Reel win multipliers – this is completely random, and will be triggered after any winning spin, giving multipliers of 2, 3 or 5 to your existing wins.
* Near miss free – this randomly occurs after a losing spin, and will add scatters to the reels if you have 2 free spins bonus symbols. Therefore triggering the free spins feature.
* Near miss win – this is also random, and the fairy will shift the reels in order to make a winning combination.
If the many features just within the base game wasn’t enough, you also have the standard scatter and wild symbols. The scatter is the balloon symbol, and if you land 3 or more of them then you’ll get an instant win of 10, 25 or 200x your bet. Not only that, but you’ll then move on to a pick n win, where you can select 1, 2, 3 or 4 symbols, depending on the amount of symbols you triggered the round with. This will award you with a certain number of free spins.
You can gamble on this round, and it’ll bring a wheel in to the game with a variety of free spins on offer – win, and you’ll get these rounds. Lose, and you’ll go straight back to the base game.
The most fun and interesting out of all three Rainbow Riches slot games, due to the amount of features, multipliers, wilds, scatters and so on. If you like the other slot games of this theme, then you’ll love this one!
