Rainbow Riches Win Big Shindig
Rainbow Riches Win Big Shindig is the second Irish themed slot following Pots of Gold. Created by slot development gods IGT, this slot game is a worthy successor to the first Rainbow Riches slot and will appeal to fans of the genre both old and new.
Both Rainbow Riches display a devil may care swagger with a wry, tongue in cheek look at the Leprechaun myth and all the end of the rainbow glory that goes with this ancient tale.
It’s no doubt this kind of humour, which is in line with the puntastic theme to many a UK fruit machine that’s no doubt endeared it to the public, however don’t be fooled by the game’s fun-time facing, this Win Big Shindig is a serious slot that offers a great gaming experience to any level of slot player.
Just like the original, Rainbow Riches Win Big Shindig features some of the best slot sonics of any games out there on the online stage today. With a wry ‘Top ‘O the Morning’ voice-clip to enter you into the game the rest of the action is an audio delight with Irish pipe music and more Leprechaun vocals that never tire no matter how many times you spin those Rainbow Riches Reels.
Graphically, Win Big Shindig totally delights. Score in the big wins to see golden coins drop from the top of the screen, celebrating your win. This game is set in a simple background with brightly coloured, clearly defined poker symbols and the famous gold coin wild symbol that can substitute for anything other than the game’s Leprechaun hat scatter.
Now, although the number of reel symbols has been cut down to a number that’s quite low for a modern slot machine, do notice that all symbols now appear stacked on the reels in clusters, which gives you the chance to big multiple combination wins across the games somewhat modest ten pay-lines.
The bonus game in Win Big Shindig is controlled by the three Leprechaun’s hat symbols that feature on the first, third and fifth reels. Scatter in the symbols anywhere in view and you’ll have a chance to pick one to either reveal a multiplier prize or the Pots of Luck symbol that sees you transported into the Rainbow Riches Win Big Shindig signature game.
This big paying bonus game has you dancing over pots of bronze, silver and gold, each with a multiplier prize clearly displayed over each pot. Whilst the music plays the Leprechaun does his best ‘don’t move the arms, just the legs’ Irish jig and when the music stops you’re awarded a prize equal to the multiplier on the pot you’re above times your activating sub-game stake.
The gamble feature on Win Big Shindig is also a big draw for slots players as it’s a little cleverer than the host of double or nothing games that seem to suffice for original in many slot games. With this gamble game you can chose your odds from a selection from 1.25x up to 8x, with the value of any win limited to no more than 1,000 credits.

Slot Professor Says
Win Big Shindig is a complementary slot to the original Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold game. The first is a true casino slot that loves to spit the money on the reel game with small prizes on offer for the quick firing bonus rounds that almost seem like they’ve been put in as a distraction from the game’s red hot reels.
On the other hand Rainbow Riches Win Big Shindig features a reduced number of pay-lines and puts more money into the feature game where you really can win the big prizes.
The gamble feature should play a big part in anyone’s strategy that’s looking to play Win Big Shindig successfully. Many players gamble every win religiously at least at the 1.25x level as the win is stacked massively in your favour at this level and they’ll continue to bet at this level, with the wheel ‘in their favour’ and save at a point where the last bet is more than a double or nothing on their original stake with much better odds than 1:1.
Some players may argue that Win Big Shindig is therefore a slot game that should be played consistently at low stakes as it’s going to hit big when it hits big, as the game it unlikely to pay consistently good reel wins. We’d argue however from many hours of practice on Win Big Shindig that it’s a slot game that likes to streak and can pay some handsome prizes in succession both in terms of reel and bonus game prizes.
You only have to look at the symbol stacking used in this slot to see the possibilities for wins across what might appear like a modest ten pay-lines. The key to this slot is good bankroll balance and if you take into account how long it might take before Win Big Shindig goes on the golden roll then this should give you an idea of an appropriate stake value. Put this alongside a strategy that consistently gambles the smaller wins, as we mentioned above and you’ve getting close to the best returns from this superb Rainbow Riches slot.
