Such is the awesome appeal of the Rainbow Riches franchise that SG Interactive release this instalment in full confidence – and why shouldn’t they? Classic Rainbow Riches 10s through Kings make up the lowest-paying symbols, with Aces just a cut above. Then Horseshoes, Harps, Fiddles and Toadstools show their rank before the all-important Rainbow Riches game logo takes the full Irish breakfast as the top-paying symbol.
All symbol values are multiplied and then some when we pay 20.00, 30.00 or 50.00 to activate the Big Bet Feature, doubling the height of the Drops of Gold symbol, eliminating lower-paying symbols or extending the reels to award 100 payline games and 200 payline games in Free Spins. All this plus shooting the top-paying game logo from x250 stake per line to x1,000 stake per line. Breathless.
Where would Rainbow Riches be without interesting and innumerable bonus features? During the game, rainbow strips above the reels sees Wild Silver and Gold Pots nudge their way towards the reels, over the very rainbow the leprechauns skip over. These Wilds don’t always trip over the edge of the rainbow onto our reels, but when we land a Drops of Gold symbol on reel 5 we see all Wild Pots on the rainbow above cascade onto the reels to complete multiple wins.
The Silver Pot Wild substitutes for all symbols except Bonus Scatters, while the Gold Pot Wild substitutes for all symbols including Scatters. Land three Bonus Scatters and we are into the promised land of the Free Spins feature, awarding 8 free spins with an additional 4 free spins awarded for every Scatter we land. Any Bonus Scatters we land during the Free Spins round earns us additional free spins to keep this gift-giving rainbow going.
Ever since the very first Rainbow Riches game from Barcrest, the Rainbow Riches slot is the game that spawned a thousand copies. But we can accept no imitations. This latest instalment of the series instils the same fun and frivolity as the very first Rainbow Riches online slot, while adding layers upon layers of reels, paylines, bonuses and Big Bet features that elevate this release and make it almost indistinguishable from its earliest predecessor. There is just enough to keep them in the same boat, though. And more than plenty to keep fans of the franchise happy. Another green feather in SG Interactive’s cap.
