Released back in 2009 Rainbow Riches is the very first Barcrest game in the now-iconic Rainbow Riches series to land online casinos after enjoying many successful years on physical slot machines in pubs, bars, bookmakers and casinos around the world!
This charming 5-reel, 20 payline slot features some incredibly memorable bonuses including the Road to Riches, Wishing Well and Pots of Gold features, all of which have made their way into subsequent games over the years.
This game is old but gold, it's very basic, but it has plenty of charm, especially if you played the game on a physical slot machine in the years before.
The reels are bordered by golden Celtic knots, whilst behind the game reels is a purple scene featuring a hill and a brightly-coloured rainbow (don't ask us why everything but the rainbow is purple, as we think this was a very strange choice!).
All game symbols are stylised versions of your standard 10, J, Q, K, A symbols. Special symbols include a golden coin featuring the word WILD, a cheeky Leprechaun for the Road to Riches Feature, a wishing well for the Wishing Well Feature and a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow for the Pots of Gold Feature.
This game looks exactly as it would on an older physical slot machine. Players can access the paytable and bonus information by clicking a blue information button on the bottom left-hand side of the game screen, next to this players can adjust the number of paylines they're playing on and the amount they're betting per line between 0.01 and 25.00 (bare in mind this is not the total stake). On the bottom right-hand side of the game screen is the green spin button! That's literally all players need to know, nothing more nothing less.
Medium volatility slot Rainbow Riches has a slightly below-average RTP of 95% and can see players win a total of 500x their maximum stake. If we're totally honest this isn't great, but you have to remember that this is a classic online slot that was released a very long time ago when massive winning potential was still very low.
Rainbow Riches is a truly iconic game and is responsible for helping kick-start one of the most beloved online slot series of all time, that said, it's not aged terribly well at all. If you're looking to take a trip down memory lane, or just enjoy playing classic online slots then by all means give this game a go! But if you're after huge wins and flashy bonus features and mechanics this game is not for you.
