Rainbow Riches Design
As you can probably tell, the traditional concept of gold at the end of rainbows is played on here a lot. Some may argue it is not the most original concept as it appears exactly as you would expect, with a large rainbow sitting behind the reels visible throughout the gameplay. However, whether this is positive or negative is up to personal opinion.
Of course, you can’t have a rainbow themed game without a Leprechaun, which is present as the game mascot and as the game loads and he is who you will on screen welcoming you in.
The only thing missing now is the Pot of Gold, which comes in the form of symbols on the reels which activates a bonus, which we will talk about further on.
In terms of the layout, it is very simple, with just the Gaelic style frame surrounding 5 reels of colourful symbols which share the same Gaelic influence. In general, it looks fine but it is not amazing and there is plenty of games out there with more adventurous aesthetics for sure, such as Gonzo’s Quest.
The sound is also very simplistic and is probably what you might expect, with a sort of chiming that connotes a sort of magical feeling. This can be heard when entering the game and when you spin.
A Leprechauns laugh can also be heard occasionally, but other than this the sound design is not really a prominent element.
Rainbow Riches Pay-Outs
Rainbow Riches has very traditional symbols in place with predominantly the use of symbols from playing cards. This makes the payouts very easy to decipher even if you haven’t played the game before.
10s, Jacks and Queens, all payout the exact same amount. For three of a kind of any of these you get 5x your wager as a payout, four of a kind pays 10x your wager and 5 of a king pays 100x your wager. You will get nothing for two of a kind of any of these.
Although again, you get nothing for two of a kind, Kings and Aces pay out much more if you get them in a pay-line, with 10x for a three of a king, 50x for four of a kind and 150x for four of a kind.
However, it is not as simple as that and Rainbow Riches has some very specific symbols on its reel that are exclusive to the game and which pay out the best by far. These are the ones that you should mainly be aiming for if you want to get the best rewards.
The first of these is the Rainbow Riches symbol, which looks like this:
This will see you get 2x for two of a kind, as much as 50x if you get just one more and get three of a kind, before being able to get 150x for four of a kind and a massive 200x for 5 of a kind!
However, if that sounds good, the Wild symbol will sound even better, as if it offers the biggest pay-outs of all in the game, it looks like this:
This symbol is the best of the best and will see you racking up the most money on offer (excluding bonus rounds) if you manage to get it lined up on the reels.
With two of a kind, you will get 2x on your wager again, which is the same as the Rainbow Riches symbol. However, the first difference occurs when there are 3 on the board, this will move things up to 60x on your wager. Then on four, you get 200x on your investment, which is very nice and the maximum you can get with Rainbow Riches.
However, getting matching five of these Wild symbols is the best thing on the board, with 5 of a kind getting you a massive 500x winnings on your wager, which is a huge amount!
Essentially, this and the Rainbow Riches symbols are the ones you should be looking out for mainly, with everything else small fish in comparison.

Rainbow Riches Bonus Rounds
There are three separate bonus rounds on offer to you on this game if certain symbols appear on the board at the right time, each of these will see you get much larger funds, much quicker.
They look like this:
Road to Riches Bonus
If you manage to line up three or more of these symbols then you will activate the Road to Riches Bonus. You will then be able to spin the wheel to see how many steps you can advance on the “Road to Riches”. Each of the steps has a different multiplier. When the wheel stops spinning, the step you land on will grant you the stated multiplier. Which can be either good, great, or just OK, it all depends on the luck of the spin.
Wishing Well Bonus
The Wishing Well Bonus is triggered when you manage to land three or more of these symbols in view at one time. You then click on one of them to activate the bonus. Behind the one you choose will be a multiplier for you to benefit from, so choose carefully. The more of these symbols line up together the better. You can win a multiplier between 2 and 500x.
Pots of Gold Scatter Bonus
The Gold Scatter Bonus is activated upon getting three of these symbols in view at any one time. It will initiate the rotation of golden, silver and bronze pots around a leprechaun. When it stops, an arrow will highlight the winning multiplier and this will be awarded to you.
As you can see, there is a fair share of bonus rounds on offer to you which offer very large amounts of bonus cash you if the rounds work in your favour. As such, you have three more great reasons to try out this great game today.
Rainbow Riches Paylines
As the default, you have 20 pay lines that will see you earn funds, but you can limit that to just 1 that runs straight down the middle.
It would make sense to just use all 20 as you will maximise your chances of winning, but if you are someone who likes to live on the wilder side of life or you prefer the classic style of slot games, then maybe you will opt to use less.
Rainbow Riches Summary
Although it has a simplistic and, some might say, cliché design, there is a lot to offer once you get playing, so we are sure that you will enjoy the overall experience on offer.
It is a great game, especially for beginners, as the symbols and payouts are super easy to understand, so it can become incredibly rewarding game very quickly to those who have lady luck on their side. This is owed partly to the basic design and the choice to use only two game-specific symbols for payouts, this means, whether you are new to the slot machine world or a veteran, you will be able to enjoy this game with ease.
Plus, with three extra bonus rounds on offer which are easy to activate and to understand, successful optimisation of these will also see your funds take a stark increase very quickly.
As such, we would fully endorse this game if you are looking to get a foothold in the casino game, and it is especially good for beginners. However, even experienced slot machines players will enjoy it, but they may be looking for something more advanced in terms of style and gameplay. If this is the case, then the game also has a couple of sequels, which are a bit more advanced.
