Barcrest once again tries to summon the luck of the Irish in Rainbow Riches Leprechauns Gold. This latest arrival in the hugely popular series is played using an unusual 7 reel, 5 row game engine which combine to deliver 50 paylines. Extras on offer here include transforming symbols as well as a bonus round where you can win up to 25 free spins complete with the added transforming extras. Increase your stakes and activate Big Bet Mode to bring Rainbow Reels into play which offer wild scatter cash bonuses and an expanded paytable in the free spins round. Play from between 10p and £500 per spin.
There’s nothing too flashy about the design here. You’ll see rolling green fields and a yellow brick road behind the reels. There you’ll find heart, diamond, club and spade symbols alongside 4 leaf clovers, toadstools, horse shoes, harps and rainbows. The Rainbow Riches logo is top of the pops as far as standard symbols go, offering awards of up to 25 times your bet per payline. There’s also a wild.
The Lucky Leprechaun appears on the Bonus symbol. Land 3 or more of these on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Rainbow Ring Spinner. Depending on where the pointer stops, you’ll be awarded 1 of the following feature rounds:
? Bonus feature – a selection of mystery ? symbols are dropped into play. All instances of the ? symbols then turn into the same symbol and a new payout consideration is made. If the ? turns into a wild, you could trigger the Wild Rover Bonus feature.
Wild Rover Bonus feature – in this round, a collection of wilds are dropped onto the reels. These can spread and turn adjacent positions wild too. A payout consideration then follows.
Free Spins Bonus feature – trigger this round and you’ll receive between 8 and 25 free spins. The ? or Wild Rover Bonus features can both strike at any time during the free spins to further boost your winning chances. At the end of the free spins, you’ll progress to the Wishing Well Bonus feature. Choose from 1 of the gold coins – these can get you even more free spins or a bet multiplier boost to your payout.
Like many Barcrest video slots, you’ll also have the chance to increase your stake levels and play in Big Bet Mode feature – once live, the Super Rainbow Reels feature become active. These special reels can deliver wild cash scatters that award instant payouts of between 1 and 50 times your bet. Trigger the free spins and a more lucrative paytable is in play. The number of Rainbow Reels that are active depends on the bet size.
Rainbow Riches Leprechauns Gold ticks all the usual Barcrest boxes. The design is simply done and there a classic ‘diddly dee’ soundtrack. If you can see past the clichés, there are some decent extras on offer here. It’s simple and silly but Rainbow Riches Leprechauns Gold is another enjoyable addition to the Rainbow Riches franchise
