Another release in the hugely popular Rainbow Riches series is Rainbow Riches Leprechauns Gold. Created by Barcrest, it’s a 7 reel, 5 row, 50 payline slot that comes with plenty of extras including transforming symbols, morphing wilds and a free spins round that awards up to 25 free spins. Up your stakes and play in Big Bet Mode to bring even more extras into play. Stakes start at 10p, rising to £500 per spin.
The simple design in Rainbow Riches Leprechauns Gold will be familiar to anyone who has played the other slots in the Rainbow Riches series. With a yellow brick road and rolling green fields in the background, you’ll see playing card suit symbols spinning around the reels as well as 4 leaf clovers, toadstools, horse shoes, harps and rainbows. The best symbol is the Rainbow Riches logo which will get you 20 times your stake if you land 7 on a payline in standard mode (the prizes increase markedly in Big Bet play). There’s also a wild.
On any spin you could see the Lucky Leprechaun Bonus symbol from the Lucky Leprechaun Bonus feature – this basically adds extra Bonus symbols and boost your chances of landing the feature rounds. 3 of more will see you enter the Rainbow Ring Spinner – depending on where the arrow stops, you’ll win 1 of the following extras:
- ? Bonus feature – a number of ? Symbols drop onto the reels. These then all transform into the same matching symbol and a new payout calculation is made. If a wild appears in the ?, you could get upgraded to the Wild Rover Bonus feature
- Wild Rover Bonus feature – a random assortment of wilds are added to the reels on this spin. Better still, they can turn adjacent reel positions wild too.
- Free Spins Bonus feature – between 8 and 25 free spins are awarded here. On any free spin, you could land the ? or Wild Rover Bonus feature. Once all the free spins are completed, you’ll go to the Wishing Well Bonus feature. Pick a coin. If you’re lucky you could get even more free spins or a stake multiplier boost to your payout.
If you wish you can up your stake levels and play in Big Bet Mode feature – this activates the Super Rainbow Reels feature where you can find wild cash scatters that award instant payouts of between 1 and 50 times your stake. Trigger the free spins and a more lucrative paytable is in play. The higher the Big Bet mode, the more Rainbow Reels that are active.
Barcrest has kept to its tried and trusted formula with Rainbow Riches Leprechauns Gold. The colourful visuals are simply done and there’s a jaunty backing track playing as you spin. The gameplay is pretty straightforward too. The mini features can deliver some tidy action but the best opportunities arise in the free spins round where those mini features can trigger at random – there’s over 1,085 times your stake to be won from each free spin.
