Rainbow Riches Online Slot
Rainbow Riches is a slot by Barcrest that uses lucky items from Irish folklore as its symbols. The purple background makes the colourful rainbow appear even brighter and a gold frame with a celtic design surrounds the reels. The pictures of a Leprechaun, a Wishing Well or a pot of gold will all launch different feature rounds where you can win up to a x500 multiplier in a number of ways. Let some Irish luck into your gameplay and leave with an increased balance.
Main Features of the Rainbow Riches Slot
There are 3 Scatter symbols that launch 3 different Special Feature rounds and these are the most rewarding aspect of this game. They are:
- Portrait of a Leprechaun - launches the Road to Riches Feature
- Picture of a Wishing Well - launches the Wishing Well Feature
- Image of a Pot of Gold - only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and launches the Pot of Gold Feature
Road to Riches Feature
This is launched when 3 or more Leprechaun portrait symbols land anywhere on the reels. You need to spin the wheel to see the number of steps up the cash path you will be awarded. The wheel has number 1 to 6 and collect on it. If you land on a number you will move that amount of spaces and can spin again until you land on the collect image or you reach the top prize. The final position you have received is then multiplied by the total bet.
Wishing Well Feature
When 3 or more Wishing Well Scatter symbols land anywhere on the 5 reels this feature is triggered. You need to select a Wishing Well and the value that is revealed with by multiplied by the total bet.
Pot of Gold Feature
