Rainbow Riches slots is powered by Barcrest, inspired by the land-based casino classic slot of the same name. King among online slot games, thanks to exciting and plentiful bonus rounds – it's no wonder it is so popular amongst slots players.
A good old Irish-themed slot game never goes a miss. The game takes place on a winding road with a colourful rainbow in the background, offering various paths for players to explore and Rainbow Riches spins to discover. Wishing wells and pots of gold invoke the feeling of being on the Emerald Isle.
It’s a bright and colourful five-reel slot with 20 paylines and an RTP of 95%, so prepare to be smitten with this charming game.
Setting up your bet amount before you hit the Irish trail is easy. Beneath reel two is the number of paylines you wish to play. Twenty is the maximum, but you can play any number down to one. Simply adjust with the + and – buttons. The next box along is the amount per payline. Bets start at 1p per payline, so if you play all paylines your bet will be 20p. Again, use the + and – buttons to make your selection. Once you’ve set that, click the big flashing green Spin button!
The lower value symbols in play are the card symbols, 10, J, Q, K and A. The pay outs are calculated in conjunction with your bet amount. The award will be 5 times your bet line for the Q, J and 10, and up to 7.5 times your stake for the King and Ace. For example, if you bet £1 and land five kings, you will be awarded £7.50.
Winning paylines are played from left to right, which means that to win, you’ll need to ensure your winning lines start from reel one and head towards reel five.
Special symbol to look out for
You will see the game’s Wild symbol, the large golden coin depicting the leprechaun with his pipe. The Wild substitutes any of the standard game symbols to create winning lines when an extra symbol is required, or to extend an already winning line. You can also collect prizes for wild matches. Five-of-a-kind Wilds will award you 25x your bet amount!
