How to Play Rainbow Riches

Online casino slot games are increasing in popularity all the time, and much of this is down to the intriguing themes each one possesses. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is a cultural icon we are very familiar with, so creating a video slot game based on the idea makes a whole lot of sense.

Rainbow Riches is one such game. It's based on the legend of the leprechaun with treasure that can only be found where the rainbow ends. It has been a favourite online slot game since it was first released and is one of the 'go-to' games that slot players rely on, as they know it’s a top release. The theme relates to luck of course, which is a key feature of slot games in general. It may explain why this particular title has exploded in popularity.

If you're already a big fan of Rainbow Riches, you already know how to play. If not, this guide is designed to give you all the basic pointers you'll need to play the game.

Rainbow Riches Game Setup

As one of the most popular UK casino games, Rainbow Riches is a standard 5-reel video slot with 20 paylines developed by the gaming providers SG Interactive. In the game, each reel has three positions on which the various symbols appear. Before you begin playing, take a look at your line bet and the number of active paylines. You can play with the default values or adjust both as you prefer.

The line bet (or stake) is the amount you want to wager on each active payline. There are + and - buttons at the bottom of the screen that can be used to set this amount. To the right are buttons for setting your active paylines. You can choose up to 20 per spin. Note that choosing fewer than 20 means any winning combinations appearing on inactive paylines won't lead to payouts.

A winning combination in Rainbow Riches consists of three matching symbols on consecutive reels beginning in the far-left position. Rainbow Riches plays with a wild symbol that can be used to create winning combinations, so keep a close eye out for those wilds. It also plays with three Bonus symbols. If you land those symbols in just the right way, you will trigger the bonus features explained below.

Rainbow Riches is an easy game to understand regardless of your skill level and how many online slots you have played previously. You should be able to quickly get comfortable with the interface and how the game works.

Spin the Rainbow Reels

When playing Rainbow Riches slot you need to press the green 'Spin' button in the centre of the control panel beneath the reels to set them in motion.

Winning Combinations & Bonus Features in Rainbow Riches

A major plus point of the Rainbow Riches slots are the bonus rounds on offer. In the Rainbow Riches game, there are three Bonus symbols available that could help you along the way. Landing them can trigger a variety of bonus rounds.

Pots of Gold Bonus

If you land three or more Pots of Gold Bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4, the Pots of Gold Rainbow Riches feature will be triggered. This is a picking game in which one of 12 spinning pots will be randomly chosen, revealing a prize equal to a multiplier applied to your wager for that spin.

An arrow will point to one of the gold, silver or bronze pots, and whichever it points to will indicate the multiplier that you will be awarded. This feature could allow players to generate winnings of up to 500x their original bet, so your luck may be in if it triggers.

Wishing Well Bonus

Landing three or more Wishing Well Bonus symbols during standard play will trigger the Wishing Well Bonus feature. There is no extra game to play here, rather, you win a prize based on a multiplier applied to the total wager on that spin.

Play Rainbow Riches for the chance to hit this added bonus feature. You could in fact win up to 500x your original wager if things go your way.

Road to Riches Bonus

If you land three Leprechaun Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels during a standard spin, you will trigger the Road To Riches bonus game. It's a bonus game that involves spinning a wheel to move your leprechaun along a path, looking to collect prizes as he goes.

In this Rainbow Riches bonus, if you land on ‘Collect’ with your very first spin, the round will end and there will be no win. If not, you can carry on progressing anywhere from one to six steps until you eventually land on the ‘Collect’ space.

Hopefully, you will also start to accumulate winnings as you get comfortable. Rainbow Riches is a slot gaming favourite that provides plenty of great features.
