Rainbow Riches Home Sweet Home
Anyone who knows anything about Irish–themed slots have heard about Rainbow Riches. There was a time when Barcrest fruit machines, especially Rainbow riches, were in pretty much every pub in the UK. Now, this once fruit machine giant is working under the umbrella of Scientific Games. This series of titles inspired by the old legend of leprechaun, rainbow and the pot of gold has become quite popular.
Like in every release of this series, in the backdrop of the reels we can see rich, green Irish fields and forests while the reels themselves are set in a beautiful golden frame between trees.
The soundtrack follows the theme. It’s cheerful and has that Celtic vibe, that players can encounter in other releases with a similar theme.
Betting Options and Symbols
This slot has 5 reels, 5 rows, and 50 fixed paylines.
When it comes to betting options, the bet range goes from 0.10 $ up to 500 $ per spin.
Those of you who already played at least one of these Rainbow titles will recognize a majority of the symbols occupying positions on the reels.
The low – value icons are standard J, Q, K and A. Each of them will bring you 50 times your bet for landing 5 on the payline.
The high – value icons are golden harp and lucky horseshoe, violin and tombstone, mushroom and Rainbow Riches logo. The Mushroom is not poisonous and will actually revive your budget you with 200 times your bet if you manage to line 5 of them. But Logo icon will reward you with 250 times your bet for the same combinations.
Also appearing on the reels are Wild, Scatter and Bonus symbol.
Rainbow Wild, as per usual, can substitute all symbols except the Scatter while Scatter and Bonus are triggering some very special features.
Scatter is represented by the Leprechaun and this symbol can come completely or partially in view.
When Leprechaun lands in full view on the first reel, it triggers the Knock Knock round. Above the grid are 4 doors and one of them will open up when this round gets activated. It will reveal which symbols will transform into Wilds and affect the result of the current spin. But when the door open they may also reveal magical being and she will randomly select 5 positions to turn Wild.
When 3 Scatters aka Leprechauns appear in full view on the reels 1, 3 and 5, spins will be activated. Player gets rewarded with 8 spins and during this round Scatters completely or partially in view act as Wilds and will substitute for all symbols.
… That’s not all!
Pretty much every Rainbow title comes with Big Bet mini-game on the side. You don’t need a certain combination to play it, just have to click the BB button in the right corner and a new window will open up with 3 choices. All three options offer 5 spins but depending on your stake (20, 30 or 50 $), you’ll have some other perks like Leprechaun in full view, low – value icons being removed or Leprechaun height increases to cover the whole reel.
All in all, another successful Rainbow Riches slot with interesting special features.
The developer added some new and unique bonus features but also kept good old Big Bet option. Both the design and graphics are beautifully done. Magical being transforming regular symbols into Wilds is a nice addition. There’s no doubt that this release is continuing a triumphant streak of well–known series.
