Rainbow Riches Megaways

Now here should be a crowd pleaser. The fabled Rainbow Riches gets a Megaways makeover to lure fans of the legendary Leprechaun-powered slot into the dynamic, cascading Ways to Win mechanism that has made Big Time Gaming a ‘big time’ name in the slot universe.

About Rainbow Riches Megaways

Scientific Gaming has created several spin-off slots from the original Rainbow Riches, after it acquired that slot’s creator, Barcrest, but few have hit the spot like that first incarnation. Now, it’s turned to licensing the Megaways brainchild of Big Time Gaming, and I think it’s on to something a little more engaging this time . . .

The classic Rainbow Riches look is in evidence, with the six-reel Megaways frame set against a pastoral Irish landscape across which a rainbow stretches to touch down on a glistering pot of gold coins. The symbols for wins kick off with five Royals for lower pays (10 to A), but the usual Irish-themed suspects of harps, foaming pints of Guinness, and the Leprechaun himself have been usurped by five jewels for the richer rewards.

The lack of any Leprechaun might have Rainbow Riches purists up in arms, but I can’t say I miss the kitsch ginger midget myself, particularly when the Megaways magic is active on every spin. That means, to the uninitiated, that each reel can dynamically change to show two to seven symbols on a spin, and thus can deliver between 324 and a staggering 117,649 Ways to Win when they stop. That’s a cool twist in itself, but Rainbow Riches Megaways also includes the cascade rule that made the original Bonanza Megaways game such a runaway success.

Any win will result in those symbols being removed, after the win they create has been paid, causing new symbols to cascade in to fill the vacated positions and potentially trigger a chain reaction of additional wins.

Bonus Features

Reel modification comes to Rainbow Riches Megaways in the shape of its Super Gem Bonus feature. This is a special Jewel Symbol that can appear on the game’s single horizontal reel, and acts to trigger a transformation of itself and all other visible jewel symbols into matching instances of the same paying jewel symbol. Sparkling!

Bonus hunters should also watch for the game’s Bonus Symbol in the base game since four of these in view is the threshold to trigger a round of twelve free spins, with five extra free spins awarded for each Bonus Symbol above four that lands on the triggering spin.

To enrich the potential of those free spins you’ll find two extra features in play. First, +1, +2 and +3 Symbols can now appear on the horizontal reel to extend your free ride with extra spins.

Secondly you’ll also find the Unlimited Win Multiplier feature activated. This little beauty escalates on each cascade event following an initial spin to boost those bonus wins in a very pleasing way indeed!

The Slot Professor’s Summary

In truth Rainbow Riches Megaways is pretty much a re-skin of Bonanza Megaways with a few tweaks and a bit of faux-folky Irish shenanigans to its sound and graphics. However that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Megaways mechanic is deservedly like catnip to a huge cohort of slot connoisseurs and if you favour going for a spin with a little of the fabled luck o’ the Irish in the passenger seat then I suspect Rainbow Riches Megaways is going to be a casino craic you’ll be well up for.
