How do you make 1024 ways to win interesting again? You send it over the rainbow and gives you 3 types of wilds with this Rainbow Wilds mobile slot.
About the best of the lot was Xing Guardian slot which managed to keep things exciting because the locked reels gave you hope of bigger wins.
This is the problem with these kinds of games, you get tiny wins and unless there are stacks of symbols little chances of more.
However, this Rainbow Wilds slot uses these tiny wins to its advantage, as it has cascading or avalanching wins.
This simply means that a win will explode the symbols, and more will come tumbling down from above, giving you a second chance at another win.
Relying on this chain reaction of constant wins can help keep the anticipation high; Viking Runecraft slot does it particularly well.
The problem is that the wins truly are minimal; the Rainbow Wild screen was trying to get us excited about a BIG WIN of… 6 times our bet.
The good news is that there are huge wins here if you have the patience to keep playing and see these little wins as a means to an end and don’t mind spending back your winnings.
Namely, because you need just four cascading wins to trigger the free spins.
How? Not by using the 3 type of wilds symbols; oh no. They are there to get you to the free spins and give you those little wins.
No, you can get up to that amount by triggering the free spins; because every win, big or small, will either give you an extra free spin or an extra multiplier.
And with those avalanching reels, you can see how it would be more than possible to get the max 20 free spins and 6x multiplier.
No easy feat; but those who love dreaming about a golden pot at the end of the rainbow will find this Rainbow Wild game intriguing enough, and certainly pretty enough, to play.

Avalanching Reels: Made famous by slots like Pixies of the Forest, this basically means that any symbols on a winning payline will disappear, and make way for more symbols to tumble down from above.
It feels a little bit like a mini-free go each time.
Wild Star: Available on reels 2 to 5 only, these act like a normal wild, replacing all other symbols on any of this 1024 ways to win mobile game. It appears more frequently after a first cascading win.
Sticky Wild: This wild only appears on reel 3, and acts much like the wild star. Except that, once it's part of a win, it will not disappear, but stay on screen, hopefully, to grant you another win with those avalanches.
Expanding Wilds: Again, much like the wild star, it shows up only on reels 2 to 5. The difference here is that they are much rarer and will expand to cover the whole reel.
Free Spins: Every avalanche, or 'tumble' as this slot calls them, will be added to the four-leaf clover by the side of the reel.
Get enough wins in a row and you'll trigger:
The bad news is that getting more than 4 wins in a row is damn hard.
The good news is that that the wilds and avalanche feature still work during the free spins, and every win will give you either an extra free spin or an extra multiplier on a win.
We've easily gotten 5x multiplier on 14 free spins; though getting any wins bigger than 20x your bet is (again) no easy feat.
As pretty as this Rainbow Wild slot looks, don't be fooled into thinking that these leprechauns are the friendly easy-going types.
They are far closer in relation to their pixie relatives, achieving more trouble than good with those cascading wins and wilds.
This is an all or nothing slot; you need to be willing to chance getting to the free spins to walk away with a pot of gold, because nothing else will.
If you're not sure if you have that kind of patience, the Gem Rocks slot is equally volatile but has a little faster action.
