Many within iGaming think that Rainbow Riches Megaquads could revitalise the series
When people think of the Irish slots, the first thing that comes to mind is the Rainbow Riches slot series. Not only is the slot series a staple at land-based casinos, but the online slot series has over 20 different online slots and the series shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
Within the past couple of years, the Rainbow Riches series has adopted many popular mechanics such as Megaways in Rainbow Riches Megaways and Slingo in Slingo Rainbow Riches. For a long time, there has even been a rumour of a Megaquads version similar to Slot Vegas Megaquads but this has yet to be confirmed by the owners of the slot Light & Wonder.
We at Slot Gods are always looking toward the future of iGaming and look to speculate about potential releases in the future such as Dead or Alive Megaways. Our attention has now been caught by Rainbow Riches Megaquads and has us wondering how this could revitalise the Rainbow Riches series.

An innovative mechanic
There are currently only a handful of Megaquads slots meaning that the mechanic is still quite fresh within iGaming. A Megaquads slot is different to your standard online slot as there are four sets of reels on the screen.
All of the four sets of reels play at the same time until the Rainbow Wild comes into play to merge all the paylines together. This mechanic is similar to the Merge mechanic in Disco Mania Megaways Merge which connects the different sets of reels together to create a huge one.
If the Rainbow Riches series utilised this mechanic, then it could turn simplistic gameplay into something more exciting. Ultimately leading players to a staggering 16,777,216 ways to win which is remarkable.
Improving the win potential
For Rainbow Riches Megaquads to work and become a fan-favourite slot amongst players, the slot will need a brilliant win potential. Sadly, many Rainbow Riches slots within the past couple of years have been lacking with lower than average RTPs and ridiculously low maximum wins.

- SG Digital
- Max payout:
- 50,000x stake
- Win lines:
- Release date:

The only exceptions to this have been Rainbow Riches Power Mix and Rainbow Riches Megaways which have amazing maximum wins of 50,000x and 12,500x the stake respectively. In order to compete with the huge variety of online slots out there, Light & Wonder will need to improve the win potential in order to make Rainbow Riches Megaquads more appealing to players.
Upgrading the design
There are certain expectations when it comes to a Rainbow Riches slot as fans are always prepared for tacky visuals that can be a little overwhelming on the eyes. Many slot enthusiasts have just learned to deal with this but this does not have to be the case.
What would really shake up Rainbow Riches Megaquads would be enhanced visuals retaining the magical Irish essence of the previous games but done more subtly. Light & Wonder is an incredibly talented studio with stunning-looking slots such as Cluedo MightyWays, Into The Storm and Disco Dawgs showing that the studio can improve the graphics.
Rainbow Riches Megaquads should find the right balance in the design keeping it in line with the classic slots for the die-hard Rainbow Riches fans but making it appealing enough to attract new players. Perhaps creating a slot that looks similar to the style used in Finn's Golden Tavern or Stumpy McDoodles 2.
What to expect from Rainbow Riches Megaquads
Ultimately, no one can say for certain what will be in Rainbow Riches Megaquads but we expect it to be a combination of Rainbow Riches Powermix mixed with Slot Vegas Megaquads. There will definitely be the Megaquads mechanic with a whopping 16,777,216 ways to win which is almost unheard of in online slots.
The gameplay will no doubt be incredible with the Megaquads mechanic and there will most likely be free spins or some kind of bonus feature. Hopefully, the rest of the slot will include an improved win potential as well as a more modern design.
Only time will tell as to what Rainbow Riches Megaquads will be like, but we will be sure to keep you up to the date with all the latest news regarding the upcoming slot right here at Slot Gods.
