What is this mobile slot about?

UK casinos most popular Barcrest video slot is available on mobile. Rainbow Riches slot is a strange beast with plenty of bonus features, if not quite what you would expect.

Chances are you’ve encountered Rainbow Riches mobile slot on your travels, especially if you are from the UK. Found in pubs and bingo halls across the country, it’s a favourite to many. If you love the online video slot then all we can say to you before you go to play on your mobile is that we tried it as an Android slot, an iPhone slot and a Windows slot. It works beautifully and has the exact same sounds and feature as the online slot machine.

A topsy turvy slot machine

For everyone else, let us give you a little bit more of an idea about Rainbow Riches slot on mobile. It certainly won’t please everyone. The sounds are very pretty and fitting of the beautiful emerald isles, but the leprechaun looks like he could murder you in your bed. No, really. He’s a little scary. Equally, this mobile video slot has no free spins to offer and the stacked symbols are not wild. Also it technically has not one but three click me features – though two are simple wheels of fortune for instant cash.

Needless to say, as you read this, it may feel like Rainbow Riches slot game is a little topsy turvy and perhaps not worth a spin. Why are the stacked symbols not the wild symbol? Why no free spins?

This mobile slot game is a strange beast, sitting somewhere in between ‘I want to be an old style slot with your 10, J, Q, K A all represented to give players a sense of familiarity and simplicity‘ and ‘Let’s razzle dazzle them with high multipliers and big win features of up to 500x their total bet!‘.

Rainbow Riches bonus game features

It walks a fine line, which mostly it manages to do well, with a return to player rate of 95% that allows for enough little wins to keep you playing, but every once in a while, if you hit the right bonus feature, gives you some eye popping “do a jig on the spot and call me leprechaun Larry” wins.

Of course, you’ll have to be patient to hit the bonus features, the one which you really want being  the rainbow and pot of gold symbol, where the hope of big wins is but at the end of a brightly coloured rain arch. However, much like the mythical leprechauns and elusive rainbows, don’t be surprised if you have to wait a good 150+ spins to hit one or the other.

Ultimately you need to enjoy the simplicity of the base game to really enjoy playing Rainbow Riches mobile slot and be careful to make your budget last to hit those elusive bonus games. Give it a try for free and see if it’s the video slot for you.

In-game bonus features

Wild Symbol: Replacing all symbols except the bonus feature symbols, this is also the jackpot symbols, giving you 500x your win if you line up five of these golden coins in a row.

Stacked Symbol: The Rainbow Riches logo is the second highest paying symbol on the 5 reels and comes stacked. It is also the only symbol except the wild symbol to pay on two symbols, which comes in handy as it's in combination with the wild that you'll get most of the wins with these stacks.

Road to Riches Bonus: Get three, four or five leprechaun bonus symbols anywhere on the reels to get the Road to Riches bonus round. Here you'll see the 200x your bet pot of gold at the end of the yellow brick road, with stepping stones full of multipliers. Spin the wheel of fortune and move along the multiplier until the wheel stops on collect or you hit that big pot of gold.

Wishing Well Bonus: A simple click me feature, unless you get at least four, this is more of a token gesture than a chance at a real win. If you get three or more in view, you'll get to click one with a multiplier on your total bet. Expect as little as x2 to as high as x10 if you only hit three symbols - which is the usual.

Pots of Gold Bonus: 3 pots of gold anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 will take you to this special feature. As elusive as the aforementioned pots of gold, this little beauty comes rarely, but when it does, tends to be profitable. Here you'll spin a wheel that will land on either a bronze, silver or gold pot, with a tasty multiplier hiding in each. This is the bonus feature that will have you tense with thrills at potentially getting an amazing 500x your bet.


Closing thoughts

Rainbow Riches slot on mobile is very much like its online version. Mostly concentrating on the joy of the spin and the base game. Though it gives you little wins often, be careful with your budget on this one. With no free spins, you'll need patience to hit those big win click me features.

Never forget that whether you're playing this through a WMS casino or as an IGT slot machine (both have the licence for this game), you're always looking for that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Hard to get, but worth the wait.
