Rainbow Riches

This Wombat is a big fan of the Rainbow Riches slot, one the most popular games in slotland  from SG Digital and Barcrest.

So much so that we have 7 versions of the games here at Wombat Casino: the original game- Rainbow Riches,  plus Rainbow Riches Cluster Magic, Rainbow Riches Freespins, Rainbow Riches  Megaways,  Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic, Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n’ Mix and finally Rainbow Riches Power Mix.

Many legends exist with a leprechaun and a rainbow, it’s the perfect slot theme in our opinion! And one thing that all the legends have in common is that there will always be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that holds all of the leprechaun’s treasure: otherwise known as the Rainbow Riches.

Look and Feel

OK, let’s be honest here. The design is not as impressive as some of our other games – but then again, it’s not trying to be.

You’ll hear some lively Irish jig music as your soundtrack with some brightly coloured reels framed by Celtic designs and a big old rainbow (of course!) in the background.

As far as old school games go, this is a classic.

rainbow riches wild symbol‘Luck of the Irish’ is a phrase that nearly every Wombat fan has uttered in his or her life at one time or another. The term surfaced during the silver and gold rushes in 19th century North America when a large number of Irish-Americans got lucky and struck it rich. Hopefully some of this magic dust will settle on you!

That’s right Wombat fans, Rainbow Riches is an Irish themed slot. Now, we’ve all played 1 or 2 of these before, but how does Rainbow Riches match up to other Emerald Isle games like Irish Eyes and Lucky Leprechaun? Let’s take a spin and see…

Rainbow Riches Slot Game Play

rainbow riches wishing well symbolThis slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines. Your symbols on the Irish-themed reels are made up of a cheeky winking leprechaun, a stone wishing well (seen left) and a pot of gold under a magical rainbow, (your high paying standard symbols).

Your low-paying symbols are the usual 10, J, Q, K & Ace playing cards. There’s also the game’s Wild which is the chunky gold coin, and the Rainbow Riches logo.

You can play from 0.20 a spin to 500.00 a spin, so there is something for everyone, from the cautious slot spinner to the high rollers amongst you.

About the Developer

The Rainbow Riches slot was originally created by Barcrest who are now owned by SG Digital who also designed the Raging Rhino slot machine, another classic game.

These slot wizards are based in Las Vegas and have been in the online slot business since the very beginning which means they really know how to make the Wombat-friendly games.

Bonus Features

There are no free spins in the original Rainbow Riches. There are some in the later variants (more on that in a bit), but not in the original game.

But what you do have is different bonus rounds stuffed with multipliers and lucrative pick ’em features, so there is no need to panic!

Here is a rundown of the bonus features on offer in Rainbow Riches:

Pots of Gold Bonus

This is the hardest bonus to land, but when you do, it really is worth the wait! You trigger the Pots of Gold bonus by landing 3x or more Pots of Gold Scatters (naturally) on the middle 3 reels.

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, which could be a nice little earner if you have the luck of the Irish!

Road to Riches Bonus

Yes, Wombat fans as you can already see, the lucky ginger fella in this slot packs more bonuses in than most other games including the Flux slot machine. And here’s another one for you – yes it’s the mega famous Road to Riches bonus!

Land the Little Fellas

rainbow riches jack symbolThis 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 determine the number of steps up the ‘Road to Riches’ that you will 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. Worth a shot though.

Win Your Wish Bonus

The Wishing Well bonus is a simple pick ’em type feature, which will crop up on your reels more regularly than the other 2 features. Set off this little extra by landing three or more of the Wishing Well symbols anywhere on the reels.

You must choose 1 out of the 3 wishing wells on offer – this will reveal a hidden multiplier value. You can get 20x your stake if you pick the highest one.

Rainbow Riches Jackpot

There is no progressive jackpot in this Rainbow slot, but the good news is that you can hit the big time if you land 5x of the Gold Leprechaun Wild icons. Manage this and you’ll scoop 500 coins!

Rainbow Riches Slot Variations

As a much-loved and mega popular slot, there are now 14 other variations (including Rainbow Riches Slingo)  of the original Rainbow Riches game. Here are a few of the variants we stock. If you sign up at Wombat Casino, you can test them all out for free, we have demo versions of all of them. Check them out below:

Rainbow Riches Megaways

rainbow riches megawaysIf you feel like upping the ante with your spins – have a ‘craic’ at the Megaways version! It comes with 6 reels and a random number of symbols per reel on each spin that gives you a cracking 117,649 ways to win. Very nice, I must say.

This new slot mechanism also comes with cascading reels, a Super Gem Bonus feature that turns all visible gems into matching symbols, and a Free Spins round with an unlimited win multiplier.

Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n’ Mix slot

rainbow riches free spins symbolThis fruity sounding favourite could also be an option for you Wombat fans. Here, all of the bonus features that you know and love in Rainbow Riches have come together in one game, including the Cash Drop bonus, the Road to Riches, Pots of Gold, and more.

All you need to do is select which bonuses you wish to activate when you start the game up – then get spinning! Pick 3 out of 5 before the game starts. You can always change them later if you want to mix things up a bit.

Rainbow Riches Cluster Magic

Another addition to the Rainbow Riches family takes the ‘luck of the Irish’ to the next level with an expanding grid mechanic and more features than you can shake a leprechaun’s stick at.

Straight off the bat you’ll see that this version is pretty different to its rainbow-coloured predecessor, as it is played using a cluster pays game engine. This means you’ll need to land a cluster of 5x or more matching icons vertically or horizontally to get a win, and there are no pay-lines or reels.

8×8 Grid – Instead, Rainbow Riches Cluster Magic slot is played out on an 8×8 grid in the bonus round, but to begin with only a 4×4 block in the centre of the grid will be unlocked.

Cascading Reels – Land a winning cluster and your symbols will explode and are removed – a new cascade of icons drops down from above to replace them.

Each winning cascade also unlocks positions on the reels, opening up even more grid spaces for you to make those winning combos on. So basically, the more consecutive wins you make, the bigger the size of the grid that you’ll be able to play with. Cool!

Free Spins – Hit 6x consecutive winning cascades in a row and it’s free spins time for you.

– Wild Magic – Between 4x and 16x wild symbols are added to the reels on each free spin, plus, if you hit 6 consecutive cascade wins during the feature, you’ll scoop an extra 4 free spins. Bonza!

– Persisting Wilds – 2x wild icons are added to the grid every time you land a winning cascade. Which means if you get 6 consecutive wins you could end up with 12 of the blighters!

– Infinity Games – This will give you +1 free spin on every winning cascade drop, plus an unlimited win multiplier that starts at 1x and increases +1 on each pay out. There’s a maximum of 250 free spins up for grabs, and you’re guaranteed to win at least 10x your stake if you land this feature. Hurrah! And cheers to that generous Leprechaun!

This Wombat is a big fan of the Cluster Magic reboot! The graphics have been given a nice upgrade and the gameplay is bang up to date, too. Well done Scientific Games.

Rainbow Riches Game History

Back in the Golden days of slots, Rainbow Riches was one of the most-played fruit machine games in the UK, and its ‘Road to Riches’ bonus is still one of the most iconic slot bonus features out there to this day.

Rainbow Riches Popularity
The original game was available in arcades, bingo halls and bookies shops across the UK before being turned into a slot classic in 2006 – making it a bona fide vintage release. Rainbow Riches is still as popular today as when it was first released, if not more so!

Conclusion

rainbow riches wild symbol

This is a classic Irish themed slot and one of the biggest out there. Rainbow Riches slot is hugely popular with its enduring theme, colourful graphics and fun bonuses.

You’ll notice that there are a whole load of imitations of this slot from a variety of different games makers (and some of which are pretty decent games themselves), but Rainbow Riches is the original and still the best.

The theoretical payout percentage of the Rainbow Riches slot is 95-96%, depending on the variant you are playing and the game’s bigger wins tend to come from the Pots of Gold Bonus feature which is this wombat’s personal favourite (but is also the hardest to trigger of the 3 extra games).

Fans of Irish slots: this is a must play! And for the rest you, dip into a bit of slot history while playing this outstanding slot.
