Rainbow Riches

There are some online slot games that stand the test of time, and Rainbow Riches is one of the best-known. It was created by a company called Barcrest way back in 2009, and it proved an instant hit with players thanks to its upbeat and enchanting Irish theme. But, what makes people return to spin its reels time and again isn’t the lovable leprechaun character that graces its reels, but the three fun-packed bonus features that have the potential to lead you to that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

This Barcrest online slot can be enjoyed by all as it accommodates a vast range of budget sizes. So, whether you want to play it with 25p or £500 per spin, you’ll still be in the running to win prizes as big as 25,000 coins per line when you take a trip to the Emerald Isle with Rainbow Riches.

The game comes with a valuable wild symbol that can help you create extra winning combinations, as well as three exciting bonus games called Road to Riches, Pots of Gold, and Wishing Well.

And, once you’ve taken it for a spin, you may well wish to check out some of the Rainbow Riches sequel slots by Barcrest such as Pick ‘n’ Mix and Reels of Gold!


A mystical purple haze hangs over the picturesque fields that form the backdrop for the Rainbow Riches online slot, and overhead, a vibrant rainbow causes the horizon to glow. Could there be a pot of gold waiting at its end? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s by playing the game!

The reel set is housed within a gold Celtic-inspired frame, and it includes five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty non-fixed paylines.

There are lots of different symbols which can be used to form winning combinations from left to right across the screen, including the Rainbow Riches logo, the gold coin, and the five playing card symbols (N.B., 10, J, Q, K, and A). Plus, there are three bonus symbols which are the wishing well, the leprechaun, and the pot of gold.

All of the game controls are located at the bottom of the screen. The blue button loads the paytable and rules while the red button allows you to set up the Auto-Play feature to take five to one hundred spins automatically.

You can adjust the number of active paylines to anywhere between 1 and 25, and the Bet/Line box lets you pick an amount to stake per payline, with the minimum being 0.01 and the maximum being 25.00.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol in Rainbow Riches is the gold coin with the leprechaun’s face on it. It pays out generous amounts of up to five hundred times your bet when it creates two, three, four or five-of-a-kind wins. Plus, it can substitute for all symbols except the three bonus symbols when it has the potential to make or enhance a winning combination.

Scatter Symbol

While some online slot games only include one scatter symbol, Rainbow Riches boasts three, and each of them can allow you access to one of the exciting bonus games that are available.

Although they cannot award cash prizes by themselves, these scatter/bonus symbols (which are the wishing well, the leprechaun, and the pot of gold) can be potentially lucrative if they successfully trigger their respective bonus features.

Bonus Round

As we’ve just mentioned, this is an online slot with multiple bonus features which means that you are more likely to win cash prizes if you manage to unlock them.

To trigger the Wishing Well Bonus, you must get three or more leprechaun symbols anywhere in view. This is a pick-and-click bonus game in which you need to select one of the wishing well symbols that triggered the bonus to uncover a mystery multiplier which will be applied to the total amount staked.

To activate the Road to Riches Bonus in the Rainbow Riches online slot, at least three wishing well scatter symbols need to appear across the reels. Ahead of you, you’ll see a winding path leading to a pot of gold containing an impressive two hundred times your stake. You spin a wheel to determine the number of steps you get to take, and you’ll hopefully land on some multiplier stepping stones along the way. You continue your journey until the wheel lands on the “Collect” symbol or you successfully reach the pot of gold at the path’s end.

To trigger the Pot of Gold Bonus, you need the pot of gold scatter symbol to land on Reels 2, 3, and 4 on the same spin. In this fun bonus game, you’re taken to a new screen where the leprechaun is in a field, standing on a rock, and twelve pots (each filled with gold) can be seen above his head. You spin a wheel to find out which pot you get to plunder, and the biggest amount that is up for grabs is five hundred times your stake.
