The wombat says: Back in the old days of slots, Rainbow Riches was one of the most-played games in the UK, and its ‘Road to Riches’ bonus one of the most iconic slot bonuses out there, too. As you might have guessed Wombat Fans, it’s an Irish themed slot and we’ve all played 1 or 2 of these little beauties before. But how does Rainbow Riches match up to its Emerald Isle rivals? Well it has 3 bonus features, which is a good start. The design is not as impressive as say the Phantom of the Opera Univeral Monsters slot, but then again, it’s not trying to be. This is a classic Irish themed slot, one of the biggest!
Let’s take a spin and see….now, would you listen to that little fella’s chuckle?
Rainbow Riches slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines. Your symbols on the Irish-themed reels are made up of a cheeky leprechaun having a wink, a stone wishing well and the ubiquitous a pot of gold under the magical rainbow, as your high paying standard symbols. This is from Scientific Games- they also designed the Raging Rhino slot machine which is another classic.
Your low-paying symbols are represented by the usual 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards. There’s also the game’s Wild which is the chunky gold coin, and the Rainbow Riches logo.
FYI Wombat Fans: There are no free spins in Rainbow Riches slot, but there are 3 different bonus rounds that each involve multipliers and pick ’em features, so there’s no need to panic!
Pots of Gold Bonus
This is hardest bonus to land, but when you do it’s worth the wait! You trigger off the Pots of Gold bonus by landing 3x or more pots of gold Scatters on the middle 3 reels. Next, the cheeky leprechaun character will pop up on a second screen with several spinning pots around him – each with a multiplier number on it. When the spinning stops, an arrow will point at a pot, and your multiplier prize will be revealed. The maximum on offer is 500x your bet. It must be the luck of Irish!
Road to Riches Bonus
Well, I guess you can already see that the little fella on this slot packs more bonuses than other games like the Flux slot machine. And here’s another one: the mega famous Road to Riches bonus is set off by landing 3x or more of the Leprechaun symbols anywhere on the reels. Press ‘Start’ to spin the wheel of fortune that will decide the number of steps up the road to riches that you’ll take. Keep on advancing up the road until your luck runs out and you land ‘Collect’ on the wheel, or you reach the end of the path! You can potentially achieve 500x your stake if you do manage to get to the end, but this does not happen very often, and it’s a hard nut to crack even for this savvy Wombat!!
Win Your Wish Bonus
The Wishing Well bonus is a simple pick ’em type bonus, which will crop up on your reels more regularly. Set off this little extra by landing 3x or more of the Wishing Well symbols anywhere on the reels. Next you must choose 1 out of the 3 wishing wells on offer – this will the reveal a hidden multiplier value. You can get 20x your stake if you pick the highest one. Not too shabby…
Rainbow Riches slot is hugely popular with its enduring theme, colourful graphics and fun bonuses. Fans of Irish slots: this is a must play! And for the rest you, dip into a bit of slot history, why don’t you? Go on go on go on…
