Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold

Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold builds on the success of one of Barcrest's very first online slots, and joins other sequels in the slots series such as Pick ‘n' Mix, Free Spins, and Road to Riches.

Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold sees the return of Barcrest's much-loved leprechaun theme, and enhances it with Colossal Reels, Expanding Wilds, Super Wild Stacks, Magic Wilds, Wild Burst, and more. This time, the leprechaun is joined by a magical fairy who can award no less than seven special features, and in the Free Spins Bonus, you get to pick balloons to determine who many free spins and how big a multiplier you get. N.B., the multipliers can reach up to 2,000x! You can enjoy this fun-packed Irish-themed slot on your mobile or desktop with bets of 50p to £500, and if you want to make your playing experience even more thrilling, you can enable the Big Bet option to unlock even more special features as you take five linked spins on the reels.

More about the Software Provider

The story of Barcrest began in 1968 when it started making pinball machines and fruit machines for UK entertainment venues such as pubs, clubs, and games arcades. In 1998, it changed direction when it was acquired by legendary slots manufacturer, IGT, and in 2017, it changed ownership again when it became part of SG Interactive where it continues to make online slot games as an in-house game studio. Barcrest has made many different slot games over the years, and some of the most-played include Rainbow Riches, Monty's Millions, Crown Gems Hi Roller, Hercules High and Mighty, and Thai Flower.

Appearance and Sound Effects

Hazy blue skies, rolling green fields, and a beautiful rainbow which reaches over a generous pile of gold coins welcomes you to sunny Ireland. You'll notice immediately that there are two sets of reels rather than just one. The main reels on the left are four rows high while the Colossal Reels on the right are twelve rows high. The symbols include rainbows, leprechauns, lucky horseshoes, toadstools, harps, balloons, the RR logo, and four-leaf clovers, as well as the four suits from a deck of playing cards - spades, diamonds, clubs, and hearts.

The sound effects include a lively Irish music soundtrack, and all wins announcements are made with a brief flourish of a fiddle or harp.

Bonuses and Special Features

The wild symbol in Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold is the RR logo, and it can replace any symbol except the Balloon scatter. If a stacked wild completely covers one of the reels on the main set of reels, it is mirrored on the respective reel on the Colossal Reels.

To trigger the Free Spins Bonus, you need at least three Balloon scatters to land anywhere on either or both reels. In the Free Spins Bonus, you're presented with between three and six bunches of balloons. Depending on the number of scatters that triggered the feature, you receive a fixed amount of picks. Three, four, five or six scatters equal one, two, three or four picks respectively. If you're playing the game in standard mode, three, four, five or six scatters also get you a x2, x5, x20 or x20 multiplier, and if you're playing the Big Bet Game, you get a x200, x500, x2,000 or x2,000 multiplier respectively. You can also choose to gamble the amount of free spins you've won by spinning a dial, but be warned, if the dial lands on red, you lose all of your original free games.

On any spin in the base game or the Free Spins Bonus, a purple fairy can appear on the screen and award you one of seven special features:
Balloon Bonus – extra balloon symbols are added to help trigger the Free Spins Bonus;
Super Wild Stacks – expanding wilds fill the reel on the left before transferring to the corresponding Colossal Reel;
Magic Symbols – all playing card symbols transform into wishing wells before revealing a randomly chosen matching symbol;
Reel Win Shuffle – the reels are shuffled up and down to create a win;
Reel Win Multipliers – all wins on the current spin are multiplied by 2x, 3x or 5x;
Magic Wilds – blocks of wilds are added to the reels;
Wild Burst – butterflies land on random positions on the reels and turn them into wilds.

The Big Bet button on the right-hand side of the game screen gives you the option to access more bonus features in the Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold slot. You can pay £10 for five Big Bet Spins with Mega Expanding Wilds; £15 for five Big Bet Spins with Mega Expanding Wilds, the Bonus Pick Me Feature, and the Free Spins Trail; £20 for five Big Bet Spins with Mega Expanding Wilds, the Super Bonus Pick Me Feature, and the Super Free Spins Trail, or £25 for five Big Bet Spins with Mega Expanding Wilds, Mega Bonus Pick Me Feature, and the Mega Free Spins Trail.
