Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours Review
Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours is another follow up to the highly successful Rainbow Riches slot. The video slot was released in 2018 and has seen some excellent success. The lucky leprechaun is back and this time he’s keeping things a bit simpler compared to other Rainbow Riches slots. The game still boasts frequent payouts and high paying features.
The Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours slot has a very similar look and feel as the original with no advanced or captivating features we are used to seeing. The game is packed will high paying symbols and the potential to hit 2,500x your bet amount with a top prize amount of £250,000.
Played across 5 reels and 10 fixed paylines, this slot features a Fairy Bonus and of course Barcrest’s proprietary Big Bet option. Still maintaining the charm of the series, the fun and friendly slot is a lot of fun to play and still offers up a fortune to win.
Barcrest hasn’t made many changes to the slot when you compare it to the original, everything looks overly familiar. The slot background is very simple with a green field and blue skies. The gold-rimmed reels pop with colour with many bright symbols brightening up the experience. However, the Irish-themed slot is missing the lucky leprechaun who will only pop out when you trigger a big win or the in-game feature.
The slot’s cartoony appearance stays true to the first game but for some reasons looks less exciting. We expected the sequel to have a little more thrills and spills on the reels. The visuals are complemented by the classic Irish jingle you have heard before in previous Rainbow Riches games.
On the reels, you will find harps, fairies, rainbows, toadstools and more colourful symbols. The simple approach this game puts all the attention on the reels.
Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours doesn’t stray far away from the original Rainbow Riches game. The simple 5-reel slot uses the same design and interface. The gold-rimmed reels make the symbols stand out and exciting to see. The spin button is front and centre and looks a bit like a shiny green emerald and beneath that you have the control panel where you can set your bet amount, auto-spins, the big bet feature and find out more information on the symbols and features. Everything is incredibly clear and easy to follow.
If you prefer to sit back and enjoy the gameplay out, then you can set up to 100 auto spins. You can also enjoy a versatile bet range from just £0.20 per spin all the way up to huge £500 per spin, covering all player budgets.
The win potential is what has gained the Rainbow Riches series legions of loyal fans. These games are well-respected for their generous and frequent payouts. The big wins in Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours come from the lucrative Rainbow Riches icon which gives you 50x, 250x or 2,500x your stake for 3, 4 or 5 across a payline. This can land a huge £250,000 fortune if you hit the perfect row of Rainbow Riches symbols.
The win potential can be increased thanks to the Big Bet option that’s available. The game has a respectable 94% RTP that can be ramped up to 96% when you place bets of £2 or more and then further increased when the Big Bet feature is in play. The bigger your bet, the higher the expected win. You can expect regular payouts through the bonus feature that are triggered when a fairy lands on the reels.
Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours doesn’t have a huge number of fun extras that other Rainbow Riches games have but it still excites through its generous rewards. The slot has the looks, feel and gameplay of the original, maybe too similar. The Big Bet feature is the main attraction and will appeal to those with bigger bankrolls, but it may not please those who like to bet small. Overall, it’s worth a spin but don’t go in too excited.
