The Rainbow Riches collection is easily the most well known series of slots created by Barcrest. Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold is now available for play online in the palm of your hand. It stands out from the other slots in the series by offering a dual reel set, RTP of 94% – 98%, Free Spins, Fairy Bonus and Big Bet Option.
Spin to Win Gold from Leprechauns and Fairies
Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold has 2 sets of reels: a 4-row, 5-reel set and 12-row, 5-reel Colossal set. This online slot has 100 paylines which means there are 100 ways to win. The symbols are set against an outdoor background complete with a rainbow. The graphics are mediocre with the occasional animation of a purple fairy. Nostalgic Rainbow Riches background music and sound effects enhance gameplay.
Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold lists values for Stake/Line, Total Win and Balance in cash only along the bottom of the screen. Players may select a Total Cash Stake ranging from £0.10 – £500 at Mr Green online casino. Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold’s Paytable shows credit values which remain fixed despite changes made to the bet selection. Wins are calculated by multiplying the pay by the Stake/Line.
This slot has 12 gloriously rainbow-rich symbols. Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold has got 2 special symbols including a Logo Stacked Wild and Balloon Bonus Scatter. The Logo Stacked Wild can substitute for any symbol with the exception of the Balloon Scatter and can stack to fill in entire reel. If it happens to completely fill a reel on the smaller 4 x 5 set, the corresponding Colossal set will also fill up with Wilds. The Balloon Scatter can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 on either set of reels and is involved in triggering Free Spins. Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold has 10 regular symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Leprechaun, Rainbow, Mushroom, Harp, 4 Leaf Clover, Horseshoe, Clover, Diamond, Heart and Spade. The Leprechaun is an Extended symbol that can cover from 1 – 4 spaces on the smaller reel set and 1 – 8 spaces on the larger set.
Gameplay is left to right. Get 3+ matching symbols, starting from the leftmost reel on either set, to form a winning combination. Scatters, of course, do not follow along paylines. The highest paying symbol of Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold is the Extended Leprechaun symbol which shows a value of (500, 100, 50) in the Paytable. It gives this online slot the potential to award up to £5.000 for a 5 of a kind match. The 2nd highest paying symbol is the Rainbow which shows a value of (400, 80, 40) giving Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold the potential to award up to £4.000 for a 5 of a kind match.
Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold Bonus Features
Free Spins Bonus: The appearance of 3 – 6 Balloon Scatter symbols across reels 1, 3 & 5 of each set of reels triggers a round of Free Spins.
