We head to the Irish hills in the Pragmatic Play Rainbow Reels slot game where you’ll find the little leprechaun sprinkling a little magic across this five reel and 40 payline game.
The Rainbow Reels mobile slot is a high volatility, 5×4 reel game where you’ll find Wilds and Scatters triggering 12 Free Spins and exploding symbols on a win, revealing more chances to create a winning combination of symbols.
If you can, we suggest you play this game at its top 96.07% RTP rather than the lower 94%, as it gives you better odds of creating some winning combos, which is what you’ll need to do to have a chance of triggering the free spins. It’s something that can take over 250 base game spins to do.
One of the main features of this Rainbow Reels slot is the way in which you can create more winning combinations.
The winning symbols do explode, much like you’ll find in many Megaways slots, but instead of more dropping down to replace them, Pragmatic Play reveals a new random symbol underneath the winning symbol.
There are seven layers of symbols that, if you’re lucky, you’ll see what each hidden layer is hiding: high-paying boots, horseshoes, top hats, jugs of beer and pipes, low-paying A – 10 symbols or Wilds.
It’s a feature that you’ll get to experience on every win, something that tends to happen every 4 spins or so.
You’ll need to have the luck of the Irish to trigger the free spins early. When you do find a scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5, you’ll get 12 free spins, and the daytime setting will turn to night.
There are no special reels added multipliers here; instead, every symbol on the last layer is now a Wild symbol.
It’s a feature which, unfortunately, doesn’t always pay. We’ve been unlucky enough to win absolutely nothing from this feature, with the biggest win we’ve managed being just 20x our bet, which is nowhere close to the 5,000x bet max win, which has the odds of hitting every 6.4 million spins or so.
This game provides the action mainly in the base game, with the seven layers of symbols showing their true colours.

Pragmatic Play adds to its list of Irish slots with the Rainbow Reels slot on mobile. This five-reel game looks good and comes with all the symbols you'd expect to see in the likes of the Rainbow Riches slots.
The Seven Layers of Symbols provides more winning combinations from a single spin, and mixed with the wild symbols is what will help your casino balance tick over.
A betting range of 0.20 minimum bet up to 240 maximum bet should suffice most real money mobile slots players budgets and give you a good chance of triggering the elusive free spins.
The free spins let us down a little with you needing to get to the seventh layer to enjoy the extra wilds that are in play, something which we have yet to encounter although we triggered the free spins multiple times while writing this slot review.
Overall, Rainbow Reels is a video slot in which you'll need luck to get close to the top win, but still enjoyable for a few spins at any good Pragmatic Play casinos online or on your mobile devices.
