Rainbow Riches from WMS: Slot Review - a colourful journey to a crock of gold

Do you have the luck of the Irish? Visit the Emerald Isle and see if you can snatch a pot of gold from under a Leprecaun's nose!

There are many Lucky-Irish themed slot games on the market today so I was curious to find out if Rainbow Riches stood out from the rest.

It involves a lucky Irish Leprechaun, a rainbow with an obligatory pot of gold and a wishing well. Standard tropes when it comes to creating an Irish theme but I must admit that it works quite well in this game.

It’s a 5 reel slot game with 20 paylines and it’s full of cool features that will have you chasing the Leprechaun right until the end of the rainbow!

Special Features

The first feature that I managed to trigger was the Wishing Well Bonus feature. This happens when you land 3 or more Wishing Well symbols across the reels and the symbols will begin to flash “Pick Me” as you choose from 3 Wishing Wells. They will reveal a multiplier value which ranges from 2X all the way up to 500X!

Another great feature that I found is the Pots of Gold feature. You need to land 3 Pots of Golds on reels 2, 3 and 4 to trigger it. You will be greeted with a nice animation of Gold, Silver and Bronze pots spinning around on the screen and a cursor will point to one of them as soon as they stop moving. Each pot has a multiplier value and this can also be 500X your original bet!

My favourite feature has to be the Road to Riches Bonus feature. You have to land on 3 or more Bonus Leprechaun symbols in order to activate it. This leads you to a screen where the charming Leprechaun needs to walk a path to reveal some handy prizes. The cool thing here is that you have to spin a wheel in order to decide how many steps he takes. Reach the top of the path and you will be awarded multipliers ranging up to 500X! This is a lot of fun as it takes you away from the main again for a nice rewarding distraction.

Theme and Graphics

While there are many Irish-themed games out there on the market these days, I liked this game because it has such a colourful look and feel to it.

The Leprechaun looks great with his mischievous smile and the symbols run smoothly across the wheels and it is nice to see a rainbow draped over the background.

The music is quite poppy and the sounds effects are nice and tight when you spin the reels.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 5 reels with 20 paylines, a reasonable RTP of 95% and a Jackpot of 500 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the line bet when you spin the reels.
