Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold is a Barcrest slot with 5 reels and 50 to 200 paylines. Powered by Barcrest, everyone’s favourite leprechaun is back and you can play with 10p to £500 a spin on all devices. The Irish luck themed classic returns with a number of new features which will hopefully take you to the end of the rainbow.
Visually, it looks like the other Rainbow Riches slots – however, it looks best playing on a smartphone devices (vertically). Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as harps, mushrooms, lucky horseshoes, violins and the Rainbow Riches logo – the latter is the most rewarding giving you 5 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold also comes with silver and gold pot wilds – the silver ones substitute for all symbols bar the Bonus symbol whilst the gold ones substitutes for all symbols. These are important in the Drops of Gold Bonus feature – you will see a rainbow of gold and silver pots feed into a drop zone which is 5 reels wide and 4 symbols high. This appears above the lower/main reel set.
If the 5th reel contains a Drops of Gold or double-height Drops of Gold symbol after a spin, all pots within the drop zone will fall onto the corresponding position on the lower/main reel set. If a double-height Drops of Gold symbol lands wholly or half, it triggers the feature. Silver pot wilds that fall into a Bonus symbol transform into gold pots which substitutes for the Bonus symbol.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold also comes with a Free Spins Bonus feature which is played when you get 3 or more pots of gold Bonus symbols anywhere in view – 3, 4 or 5 of them will give you 8, 12 or 16 free spins. Look out for the Bonus symbol during the feature as 3 or more will retrigger the feature – this can give you up to 32 free spins in total.
You can trigger the Drops of Gold Bonus feature meaning you can benefit from plenty of additional wilds if the Drops of Gold or double-height Drops of Gold symbol lands on reel 5.
Being a Barcrest slot, it comes with a Big Bet feature which is a series of 5 linked spins – you then choose from a £20, £30 or £50 option which gives you plenty of extras. For starters, the return to player % increases (meaning your chances of winning are better).
In the £20 Big Bet game, the rainbow above the reel set upgrades to a Super Rainbow which contains more silver and gold pot wild symbols. Only the double-height Drops of Gold symbol appears on reel 5 increasing your chances of triggering the Drops of Gold feature.
In the £30 Big Bet game, you get the same as the £20 option but all low value playing card symbols are removed from the reels. For the £50 Big Bet game, all the above applies but you play on a 100 payline reel set. With all options, you can trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature – if you do this with the £50 option, you will play on a 200 payline reel set.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold is a new take on the classic theme/brand – it’s all about the Drops of Gold Bonus feature which applies in the base game and Free Spins Bonus feature. It’s a medium variance game with possible wins of 500 times your stake on each spin – overall, another welcome addition to the Rainbow Riches portfolio of slots. If you want something simpler, you cannot go wrong with the original – Rainbow Riches.
