Rainbow Riches at Crown Bingo
Rainbow Riches's mischievous leprechaun will do everything he can to protect his pot of gold. Your job, if you are lucky enough to accept it, is to go searching for that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Along the way, you will encounter three extra bonus features that will help you in your quest.
Rainbow Riches is a popular Barcrest game that has become almost an institution of slot gaming. It has proved so popular that designers created a number of sequels to continue the popular Irish and leprechaun theme. If you like bonus play, you are going to love Rainbow Riches.
Playing Rainbow Riches
The first thing to know about Rainbow Riches is that you can adjust both active paylines and the amount you want to bet on each line, also known as your line bet. There are + and – buttons for both options at the bottom of the screen. You'll recognise them by their red colour.
Make your choices for both active paylines and line bets, then spin the reels and see what happens. Three or more like symbols occurring on the same payline generates a win. Note that any and all winning combinations appearing on inactive paylines are not paid.
Spinning manually is a matter of clicking the green 'Spin' button at the far right. If you prefer automatic spinning, just click the red 'Autoplay' button to the left of the 'Lines' window. Clicking the small, blue button next to it opens the paytable where you will find essential information about symbol values, paylines, and bonuses.
Wild and Bonus Symbols
There is a Wild symbol in Rainbow Riches; you will recognise it when you see it. As for Bonus symbols, there are three of them. Each one corresponds to one of the game's bonus features. Note that Wilds can substitute for all others except Bonus symbols.
Much of the popularity of Rainbow Riches is the result of its three bonus features. Those features are as follows:
Pots of Gold – This is a picking game in which the software picks for you. It is triggered by landing three or more Pots of Gold Bonus symbols during base play. Once activated, you will see a screen that shows a leprechaun in a field along with 12 spinning pots. One of those pots will fall to the ground to reveal a prize based on a multiplier.
Wishing Well – This is another picking game with one difference: you get to make your own picks. Trigger it with three Wishing Well Bonus symbols in standard play. Once activated, you will be presented with a number of different wishing wells from which you get to choose one. Your choice will reveal a multiplier that will be applied to your wager to generate a cash prize.
Road to Riches – This is the big one. It is a wheel of fortune game that lets you spin a magic wheel and advance your leprechaun along a trail as you collect prizes. Each spin reveals either a multiplier or the 'Collect' symbol. You keep spinning until you land on 'Collect' or you manage to navigate your leprechaun to the end of the trail. All prizes collected along the way will be added together to generate your total win for the bonus round.
Rainbow Riches is one of the best Irish themed video slots on the market. If you have already played the game, you know why. If not, right now is the best time to start playing. Remember that there is a pot of gold waiting at the end of the rainbow.
