Rainbow Riches Race Day Review
The beloved Rainbow Riches series now has a sports themed slot all about horse racing. Rainbow Riches Race Day is based on the classic Donkey Derby machines. Developed by SG Digital and Barcrest, this slot plays on 6-reels and 4,096 ways to win.
More impressively, you decide on your own volatility level during the horse bonus round. For a horse racing themed slot combined with the beauty of Irish slots, check out Rainbow Riches Race Day.
Sadly, it feels static with not a lot going on in the background. You have stands with the race tracks but that's about it. Naturally, as a Rainbow Riches game - the background is vibrant and colourful. The symbols on the reels look exactly the same as the original Rainbow Riches slot released in 2009. It’s incredibly outdated and feels a little cheap.
The race day above the reels with the horses on is bright and looks decent enough - but it’s a shame that they don’t move or animate. Honestly, the overall design feels too outdated and more like a slot you’d find in the early 00s.
The most obnoxious music plays as you open the slot. It’s a mixture between an Irish jig and an off-beat rock song. The uilleann pipes are just a little too much. It’s much advised that you mute this horrible music at the bottom left of the screen.
If you played any of the other previous Rainbow Riches’ titles, then you’ll have no problem playing this one. They are thankfully simple and easy to pick up. You can find a brief manual at the bottom left of the screen but it’s presented in the blandest way. It looks like a flash game from the early 00s - but has the information you need at least. There’s a more colourful helpful menu at the right of the screen with better information.
The spin button is to the right of the reels with the bet level underneath it. There doesn’t seem to be an autospin function with this title.
The maximum payout is 5,000x your stake during the horse race - but there’s the chance to win more than one of these. During the base game, you can win up to 15x your stake if you roll 6 of the Rainbow Riches symbol. With a favourable RTP at 96.25%, this slot has some great win potential. It would be a legendary slot if the maximum payout was a little better.
Rainbow Riches Race Day is a medium volatility slot, but players can change the volatility level during the bonus round of Horse Racing. This makes it appealing to all types of players and is a great addition.
Fans can finally experience Rainbow Riches but with the thrilling sport of horse racing. This is a must-play for fans of Rainbow Riches or sport slots in general. It lacks a few staples such as multipliers and respins along with dated graphics - but traditional slot fans will enjoy Rainbow Riches Race Day. As long as you know going in that the maximum payout is 500x your stake, then you’ll enjoy it.
