Slot review: rainbow riches


If you’re anything like us, then you’re probably always on the hunt for a pot of gold, and where better to find it than in Ireland? Rainbow Riches takes you on a grand adventure through the land of Guinness and green hills to find the leprechaun’s riches.

Worry not, though: in this game, you won’t have to physically catch the sneaky little fella to claim your prize. All you have to do is have some fun wagering and spinning on this easy-to-use slots machine.

Five reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines are the order of the day here, along with a host of rich features, and a whopping 3 different bonus rounds to trigger. You can expect an RTP (return to player) of exactly 95% on this medium-variance slot machine, but you can also win a maximum of 500x your total stake per spin, or from any of the features.

Now you’ve had a quick look at what to expect, pack your bags and let’s take a trip to look more closely at what our leprechaun friend has in store!


It couldn’t be easier to get your hands on some gold coins in Rainbow Riches. All you have to do is land 3 or more matching symbols on any payline, beginning from reel 1 on adjacent reels. The special wild symbols and Rainbow Riches logo are the only exceptions to the 3-matching-symbols rule, and you’ll only need 2 of either of these symbols to form a win.

There’s also the betting range to consider, which is from £0.01 to £20 per active payline. This means you’ll get a bet range of £0.20 to £400 over all 20 of the adjustable paylines.


Listen, when a game is this insanely popular, it doesn’t need to have the best graphics to keep your attention. The overall look of Rainbow Riches isn’t as modern as many people would expect, but somehow that doesn’t seem to affect the enjoyment of gameplay.

A pretty rainbow is stationed behind the reels, with the rolling hills of Ireland sloping away into the distance (although they are purple rather than green). The brightly coloured symbols sit on a white background, which makes them really pop. Expect to find the usual A, K, Q, J, 10 playing cards on the reels, as well as the Rainbow Riches logo, and the leprechaun’s face on a gold coin – which are both Wild symbols. The bonus features have different wilds to look forward to, but we’ll get into that in more detail in the next section.


One of the most exciting features of this game is that it has three separate scatters – one for each bonus feature. There’s the wishing well, the leprechaun’s head, and the large pot of gold, the last of which only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4.

These symbols are the only ones that can’t be substituted by the Wild symbols. To make things even more exciting, there are even two Wild symbols in Rainbow Riches: the gold coin showing the leprechaun’s face – and the game’s logo!

These Wilds will substitute for all the symbols on an active payline (except the scatter symbol) to help you land a winning combination. Although this game is not hard to play, its bonus features, gameplay and the plethora of winning opportunities really add depth to the game’s experience in a big way.


Rainbow Riches has not one, not two, but THREE bonus features to get excited about. Here’s what you have to look forward to:

  • Road to Riches: If you land 3 or more leprechaun bonus features anywhere on your reels, you’re going to trigger this bonus feature. You’ll have to press the “Start” button for the wheel to spin, and this will decide how many steps you’ll take up the cash path. You simply keep spinning until the wheel lands on the collect position or you reach the top of the path. At the point, you’ll get whatever is displayed on the path where you’ve stopped, multiplied by your total stake.
  • Wishing Well: You’ve got to land 3 or more wishing well symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger this bonus feature. You then get to pick one of three wishing wells, which will reveal the value of the multiplier that will be used on your total stake.
  • Pots of Gold: Trigger the Pots of Gold bonus feature by landing 2 Pots of Gold symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. You’ll then have a bunch of gold, silver and bronze pots bouncing around your screen. The arrow points to one of the pots when they come to a standstill. This will reveal the multiplier value that will be put on your total stake.


If you fancy that you’ve got the Luck of the Irish, then these games will probably be right down your leprechaun alley:
