Rainbow riches Slot was developed by newbies on the block, Just For The Win, in August 2018 in partnership with Microgaming. Just For The Win or JFTW is based in Scandinavia has produced fourteen games to date with another eight in the pipeline.
The game works on the 243 ways to win but players can go up to 1125 ways to win but it offers an unusual reel structure which may confuse and even put some players off. The reel layout is 3-5-5-5-3. The Return to Player percentage of 96.02%, which for a game such as Rainbow riches is fairly, average but can award small but regular wins. The volatility of the game is medium and it is available across all devices.
Rainbow riches has three wilds rather than the usual one. The Regular, the Bottom and the Top. Bizarrely the Bottom Wild appears on reel three and the topmost horizontal reel whereas the Top Wild appears on reel two and the lower horizontal reel. The Regular Wild is exactly that and appears on the horizontal reels so not as complicated as the Top and Bottom Wilds. As with all Wilds they do override every other symbol with the exception of the scatter, of course.
Then we have the Sidewinder feature. Confused yet? This is played when the Top Wild and the Bottom Wild activates the top and bottom horizontal reels. It increases the number of ways to win to five hundred plus and contributes by 50% towards the Return to Player percentage.
Rainbow riches also has a free spin feature. This is accessed when the Free Spin scatter appears on reels two and four and the horizontal reels too. It will activate the horizontal reels and then spin. Three free spins symbols gives the player six free spins and four will give the player ten free spins. Any one of the three wilds stopping on the same position on both horizontal reels will connect and expand within the Free Spin feature therefore giving the player more Regular Wilds which in turn leads to even more free spins.
Rainbow rihces is yet another slot game with the typical Irish Leprechaun theme and Irish music playing in the background. Some of the usual Irish symbols are present although there is not a four-leaf clover in sight, which is quite refreshing, however, the game is different to all the other Irish themed lucky slots out there due to ways to win, multiple wilds and other features.
Just For The Win (JFTW) and Microgaming have collaborated on this game and whilst it is fun and exciting to play and most definitely interesting the different reel layout and the numerous ways to win and different symbols compared to other slots do, at first, tend to make the game a little more complex than it needs to be. That said, players will quickly find their feet and a way to land the wins.
