Rainbow Riches Megaways Slot Review
Rainbow Riches has been one of the most popular slots online. Drop into any casino and the Irish themed game will always be amongst the top slots. Joining them in the mix are the recent flurry of Megaways games. So what would happen if you took the Barcrest game and married it to the Megaways engine? The answer is Rainbow Riches Megaways and it's now available to play.
Like Raging Rhino's conversion, Rainbow Riches Megaways sticks to the look and feel of the original slot. The slot is set on a green grassy background that is dominated by a rainbow with a pot of gold. The traditional 'Riches leprechaun surprisingly doesn't feature. The main icons are jewels and playing card symbols (10, J, Q, K, and A). The diamond on a red background pays the most with x50 for 6 of a kind.
How To Play
Megaways slots boast six reels. To achieve a win line icons need to appear on adjacent reels. However, unlike a tradition slot those icons don't need to be touching each other. A Megaways slot also features different sized icons. These don't effect the payouts but alter the number of win lines - or Megaways - that are available. The number of win lines is determined by multiplying the number of icons on each reel.
Wagering on Rainbow Riches Megaways starts at just 20p per spin. This can be increased to just £20 when wagering at Heart Bingo, Jackpotjoy or Virgin Games. Other casino and slot sites may have different wagering levels. Rainbow Riches does have an autoplay option. This allows you to set a specific number of spins as well as disable the feature based on wins or losses.
Rainbow Riches Megaways Features
Rainbow Riches Megaways is pretty much like Bonanza and Raging Rhino Megaways but with simplistic icons versus animals and goldmines. Get at least four Rainbow Riches scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to win 12 free spins. During this bonus round you earn unlimited win multipliers. Additionally extra spins can be won if three or more scatter symbols appear on the reels during the free spins rounds.
The Megaways feature is also part of the game, but like Bonanza and Raging Rhino cascading reels are also involved. When a win occurs the winning symbols are removed and new symbols drop in. This occurs for the symbols at the top of reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Cascading reels will continue during a turn until there are no more win lines.
If you like Bonanza or Raging Rhino Megaways, then you'll like Rainbow Riches as it's essentially the same game with different graphics. Like Bonanza, Rainbow Riches is fun and exciting to play. The look is as you'd anticipate for a Rainbow Riches game. The Megaways engine does elevate the humble slot into something new and interesting. The addition of the cascading reels adds extra spice and can help generate decent sized wins. The free spins bonus round is a good feature, but a rarity in reality.
We found that Rainbow Riches Megaways struggled to generate big or small wins. The cascading reels often generated one or two wins, but rarely did they extend to symbols on reels 4, 5 and 6. The RTP of this slot is 96% but we'd suggest this is a high volatile game that's accessible on mobile, desktop and tablet. Overall we found this to be a fun game to play. We suspect that it will be another worthy addition to the Megaways and Rainbow Riches families.
