Leprechaun themes are popular among online slot games developers and players. The idea of being able to outwit the sly leprechaun has an appeal that no other slot game have. Winning the pot of gold, or in this case pot money, also adds excitement to this kind of theme.
Rainbowriches slot is a well-loved leprechaun themed slot game that has been around for quite some time. It is known by many online players especially those coming from the UK. Chances are most online players have encountered this game at least once in their playing life. It was developed by Barcrest and features a lot of the fruit machine-style elements that Barcrest is known for.
The Rainbow Riches casino game has 5 reels and 20 pay lines just like many other online casino games. It also uses classic symbols 10, J, Q, K and A along with other leprechaun themed symbols. It also contains regular slot game features like a spin button, adjustable bet and auto spin buttons. Bets can be increased or decreased using the plus and minus buttons found at the side of the line and bet/line windows. To the immediate left of the spin button is a window that indicates the amount that the player has won.
Graphics and Design
The look of Rainbow Riches slot can be described as classic. It has very little animation and it stays true to the fruit-machine feel that Barcrest is known for. The letters and numbers are jewel-toned and would glisten if 3 or more of the same symbols appear in a single spin. The entire slot game is encased in a gold frame. Again, there are very little animations in this game so gamers should not expect much.
The special symbols in this game are the gold coin which represents the wild symbol, the leprechaun symbol or what’s called the Road to Riches symbol, the Wishing Well symbol and the Pots of Gold symbol. The wild symbol can replace any of the other symbols except the road to riches, wishing well and pots of gold symbols. Getting 5 of these wilds can give you up to 10,000 in credits. Get 3 or more Road to Riches symbol and get a chance to increase your multiplier the more you win. When three or more wishing wells land in one spin, a sign that says “Pick me” will appear in each well. Click on one of them to reveal the multiplier for your next spin. The Pots of Gold feature gets triggered when you land 3 or pots of gold in one spin. In this feature you will be taken to another screen where the leprechaun will choose one of the spinning pots around him. His chosen pot will be indicated by an arrow. Inside the pot is the multiplier for your next spin.
