It’s back to Ireland for us now as we check out another addition to Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches range of online slots; this one’s called Reels Of Gold and it’s probably the most complex of the lot with paylines split over two reel sets and lots of bonus features.
Rainbow Riches Reels Of Gold is played on two sets of five reels and a total of one hundred paylines; you can just about make out meadows and mountains in the background underneath a rarely-seen sunny sky.
The main game symbols are a familiar bunch for this theme and include leprechauns, rainbows, toadstools, harps, four leaf clovers and horseshoes; different coloured hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades make up the lower values.
The Rainbow Riches logo is wild and substitutes for all others except the balloon scatter; if a stacked fills up a complete reel on the left hand set, it will replicate itself on the corresponding reel on the right hand set.
The balloon scatter symbol appear on reels one, three and five of both reel sets and to trigger the free spins you need to land at least three; depending on the number of symbols (three to six) you will receive one to four picks respectively, each of which will reveal a number of free spins.
If you’re bet stake is at least £0.50 you can then gamble that number of spins to try and increase them in a mini-game which offers various extra spins for different risk levels. A maximum of 100 can be won here but you can also lose them all.
This is a randomly occurring bonus and you will see a purple fairy fly onto the reels and award one of seven bonuses:
- Magic Wilds – stacks of wild appears on the reels which will then be reevaluated for wins.
- Wild Burst – butterflies will settle onto the reels, turning those symbols wild.
- Magic Symbols – any low value playing card symbols will all change into matching symbols.
- Reel Win Multipliers – any wins are multiplied by 2x, 3x or 5x.
- Super Wild Stacks – any wilds will expand to fill the whole reel and also transfer to the colossal reel.
- Balloon Bonus – if there are two balloons in view the fairy may add one more to trigger the free spins round.
- Reel Win Shuffle – the reels will be shuffled to make a win.
Big Bet Option
This slot comes with Barcrest’s Big Bet options which offers five linked spins with enhanced features for increasing stakes:
- Option One – wild symbols expand to fill the reel then transfer to the colossal reel set.
- Option Two – bonus symbols are collected over the five spins to make it easier to trigger the free spins; the expanding wilds are also active and there’s a Bonus Pick Me.
- Option Three – as above but with a Super Bonus Pick Me.
- Option Four – as above but with a Mega Bonus Pick Me.
Once you’ve got your head round the various bonus features and Big Bet options Reels Of Gold is an impressive slot with lots to keep things interesting. We like playing the Big Bet option – it offers more excitement and it also increases the RTP from 94.00% to 96.00% and then 98.00%.
