The wombat says: Behold Wombat fans! It’s another Just For The Win/Microgaming collaboration which means it’s time to get very excited. The Rainbrew slot is here- let’s take a look at it shell we?
Themed on Ireland’s (supposed) affiliation with all things that involve good luck and brews, this slot is about leprechauns and the liquid stuff which makes for a weird and wonderful mix. But will the payouts be just as magical? Let’s spin and see…
Look and Feel
The graphics are very nice and your reels are spinning inside what appear appears to be a leprechaun’s brewery. Yup, that’s right. If you want a simpler game you can always head to the Diamond Empire slot as this one has combinations aplenty!
These pint-sized fairies are brewing up a colourful drink in see through tubes that makes up the top and bottom reels. The design is sharp with 3D animations and makes a welcome change from the standard ‘luck of the Irish’ four-leaved clovers or pots of gold.
It also features a nice Celtic ditty as your spin soundtrack, although this wombat could have sworn we heard some didgeridoos in there too…
Rainbrew Slot Game Play
The Rainbrew slot has 5 reels and is a 243, 576 or 1,125 ways to win game depending on how many reels are activated – but more on that below. Other Ways to Win games you might want to try are the Legend of the 5 Ninjas slot or Thunderstruck 2. Or perhaps you prefer pay-lines? Well in that case you’ll need to be firing up a more trad game like the Very Merry Christmas slot (you can play this any time of the year you know) or Tomb Raider.
Anyway, let’s get back to Rainbrew shall we? Your symbols on the reels include; the leprechaun, a pretty lady leprechaun carrying a barrel, a rainbow brew barrel with a tap, a pipe with rainbow coloured smoke and a glass of said multi-coloured lucky booze. Your low value symbols are represented by Celtic symbol jewels in blue, purple, green, turquoise and amber.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
The Rainbrew slot is all about the Sidewinder feature and the 3 different Wilds; the standard Wild, plus the Top Wild and the Bottom Wild.
The Top Wild will only land on reel 2 and the Bottom Wild only lands on reel 4 – when they do appear, they will activate the extra reels at the bottom or the top of the reels.
These Sidewinders act like additional rows and open up play to give you 576 ways to win with the 1 extra horizontal reel, or a massive 1,125 ways to win with 2 of the extra reels activated.
Land 3x of the Rainbrew game logo Scatters and you’ll unlock the bonus round giving you up to 10 free spins.
FYI wombat fans: the Sidewinder feature is always active during spins, which means you get 2 extra reels to play on and the chance to scoop bigger wins more frequently. Plus, the regular wild symbols appear only on the Sidewinder tubes, so if you land you get wild symbol above and below the same reels, the entire slot will become fully wild.
And finally, each new Rainbrew logo that lands during the bonus adds an extra free spin to the round. Splendid!
When it comes to slots themed on the Emerald Isle, this wombat thought he’d just about seen it all, so Rainbrew slot was a very nice surprise indeed. The game play offers something different thanks to expanding ways to win and the horizontal reels, meaning you don’t have time to get bored, and the additional Wilds in the Free Spins seems to hoik up the action.
Take a trip to Ireland with Microgaming and Just for the Win. You won’t regret it!
