Rainbow Riches Slot

The Irish luck themed Rainbow Riches from Barcrest successfully made the transition from the live casino arena to the online world and comes packed with plenty of great features and jackpots of up to 500 times your total bet. It's a 5 reel, 20 payline affair with pick me and wheel of fortune style bonuses. Stakes range from 20p right up to £400 per spin.

At first glance you may wonder what all the fuss is about with Rainbow Riches - the visuals aren't especially spectacular on first view. Look out for playing card symbols from A to 10, a gold coin which is the wild and a Rainbow Riches logo. There are also a trio of scatter symbols – the leprechaun, the wishing well and the pot of gold which are the key to unlocking the range of features and where this slot really hits its stride.

Find 3 or more Leprechaun Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels and you'll trigger the Road To Riches feature. Here you'll be presented with a trail with increasing bonus multipliers on offer the further along the path you progress. Spin the wheel to get going. Keep on spinning until you land a collect or you make it all the way to the summit where a multiplier of 500 times your total stake awaits.

Next comes the Wishing Well Bonus feature which is triggered when you find 3 or more Wishing Well symbols anywhere on the reels. It's a classic pick me round - just choose from the Wishing Wells shown and you'll win a multiplier, ranging from two right up to 500 times your stake.

Three Gold Pots anywhere on the reels will open up the Pots of Gold Bonus feature. Once activated, you'll find gold, silver and bronze pots spinning around the screen. An arrow will point at one of them when they stop. Once again, multipliers are on offer, this time ranging from 50x right up to 500x your total stake.

Rainbow Riches' popularity in pubs, bars and casinos throughout the land has made it something of a cult classic. The online version has stuck to the same formula and with similar results. Other slots may be more sophisticated visually but as far as entertainment goes this Irish luck themed affair delivers.

The lack of any free spins is a little disappointing and action junkies may want the volatility to be higher (Rainbow Riches is low/medium variance). That said, if you're after a fast-paced, old-fashioned fruity which has plenty of features then there's plenty to enjoy here. If you’re looking for a little Irish-luck, Play ‘N Go offer Leprechaun Goes Egypt (which is strangely good) and Playtech offer Plenty ‘O Fortune.
