Checking out a Rainbow Riches online slot is like revisiting an old friend as we’ve reviewed games in this Barcrest series a number of times before; now we have Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold which comes with some ingenious gameplay, free spins and the Big Bet feature.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold is a five reel slot with three rows and a potential two hundred paylines; the unusually sunny Irish landscape stretches into the distance behind those reels while the rainbow occupies the top of the screen, conveying its Drops of Gold towards the reels.
There are some familiar high value symbols including the game’s logo, some mushrooms, a fiddle, a harp and a silver horseshoe; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wilds are the silver and gold pots (Drops of Gold) in the rainbow and we’ll explain how they work shortly but the silver one will substitute for everything except the bonus symbol while the gold one will replace all symbols. The bonus symbol is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Drops of Gold
This is triggered if a Drops of Gold symbol appears anywhere on reel five; the gold and silver pots in the lower section of the rainbow will now drop onto the reels in their corresponding positions and act as wilds, hopefully helping out with a big win.
Trigger this by landing at least three of the pot of gold bonus symbols anywhere in view and you’ll get eight free spins plus four more for any extra ones in view. It’s possible to trigger more spins from within this round in the same manner.
Big Bet Option
This gives players the chance to buy five spins with some added extras for a fixed price:
- £20 Big Bet – the Drops of Gold symbol on reel five doubles in height and the rainbow contains more wild pots.
- £30 Big Bet – the Drops of Gold symbol on reel five doubles in height, the rainbow contains more wild pots and the low value symbols are removed from the reels.
- £50 Big Bet – the Drops of Gold symbol on reel five doubles in height, the rainbow contains more wild pots, the low value symbols are removed from the reels and there are 100/200 paylines in the base game/free spins.
We always like to see something creative in a slot and Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold ticks this box with it’s wild rainbow feature; it’s an entertaining and cheerful addition to the genre and to the Rainbow Riches series and it’s highly recommended. Note that the RTP increases from 94.00% up to 97.75% as you select the more expensive Big Bet options.
