The launch of Rainbow Riches - Leprechauns Gold coming on 29/01/2019 and we’ve had a sneak peak of what’s coming! Check out our review of the games top features and in the meantime, why not have a spin on the original.
Rainbow Riches is one of the best-known franchises in the business and one of the most popular with players; so popular that there have been many sequels made, all with their own little twist making every version both unique and familiar. The provider Barcrest has created a family of games with the same idea behind them and in the latest edition Rainbow Riches - Leprechauns Gold, we can expect the same! Here’s what we know about the new release so far.
Slot Design and Theme
Very much in keeping with the previous versions, this is a classic Irish themed slot. If you’ve ever played one of the other games in the series, the graphics are almost identical with the same bouncy little leprechaun leading you to the pot of gold. If you’ve never played a Rainbow Riches game before then don’t be expecting anything outrageous with the design. It is a very simple 90s video game style slot with standard symbols such as horse shoes, four leaf clovers and, in this case, the pot of gold. The slot is set in the background of the Emerald Isle with rolling green hills, teasing rainbows and to the noise of the cheeky leprechaun’s laugh.
Gameplay and Payouts
The gameplay looks as though it will be the same as in the original Rainbow Riches game including the ‘Big bet’ option – which we’ll get to. This time the leprechaun will take you to a 50 win-line grid set across 7 reels and 5 rows with a minimum RTP of 94% and a maximum bet of $500, which sounds standard, but of course there is more to it than meets the eye.
Pay-outs are where this slot gets interesting. We touched on it earlier, but as with many slots from the game provider Barcrest – the ‘big bet’ feature comes in to play. This option gives you the chance to play a set amount of spins for a one-off fee meaning you can’t adjust your stake depending on how much you lose or win during those spins. But! And this is a big but, you increase your RTP, depending on how much you choose to bet, up to 97.5% which dramatically increases your chances of winning. This then comes down to preference; if you’d rather stay in control and change your stake amount, this feature is probably not for you. However, it is nice to have the option.
The Luck o’ the Irish might not be needed when you spin for the leprechaun’s gold as there are plenty of bonus rounds to help you on your way! With no less than six separate features to enjoy, this slot comes to life when you hit any of them.
Lucky Leprechaun Bonus: This gives you random extra scatters on screen, to boost your chances of a win.
Wild Rover: One spin with spreading wilds giving you multiple wild symbols across the grid in one spin!
The Rainbow Ring Bonus Spinner: A classic ‘click me’ that could win you anything from free spins to wild rovers.
Mystery Bonus: Mystery symbols will be placed for one spin all over the reels which could, in turn, mean increased winnings for you.
Free Spin Bonus: You will be awarded between 8 and 25 free spins when ignited. During free spins, the wild rover and the mystery bonus can also trigger randomly for better returns. At the end of the free spins, you also get the chance to throw a coin in the wishing well; you will either win extra spins, cash prizes or nothing.
Big Bet: One of the key feature that we missed out (because it’s more of a bonus!) is that the big bet also buys you rainbow reels where multiplier cash coins payout instant cash and turn wild!
