Barcrest’s favourite leprechaun returns again in Rainbow Riches Home Sweet Home – with 5 reels and 50 paylines, you can spin away from 10p to £500 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. With an Irish luck theme, it comes with a Knock-Knock Bonus feature where symbols transform into wilds – the Fairy can appear to give you more wilds. There’s also a Free Spins Bonus feature where the Knock-Knock Bonus feature comes into play on each free spin. Finally, there’s a Big Bet feature for increased chances to win.
Visually, Rainbow Riches Home Sweet Home is the same as other Rainbow Riches slots – set against a lush green meadow, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J royals, harps, horse shoes, violins, mushrooms, crosses and the Rainbow Riches logo. In the standard game, the latter is the most rewarding giving you 5 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
When it comes to the expected return in Rainbow Riches Home Sweet Home, the bigger your stake, the better your expected outcome. If playing at £2 a spin or less, the return to player % will be 94%. If your playing at £2 or more a spin, it increases to 96%. When you select the Big Bet feature, the RTP is 97.75% – more on this later on.
When it comes to bonus features, Rainbow Riches Home Sweet Home has 3. First up is the Knock-Knock Bonus feature which is triggered when the large leprechaun scatter symbol appears fully on reel 1. Above the reels you will see 4 doors – between 1 and 4 will open to reveal which symbols will transform into wilds.
You can also reveal the Fairy symbol which will randomly choose between 2 and 5 positions to become wild. These are then applied when you next trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature.
The Free Spins Bonus feature is activated when 3 Leprechaun scatter symbols appear fully on reels 1, 3 and 5 – your reward will be 8 free spins. The symbols and symbol positions determined by the Knock-Knock Bonus feature then come into play for each free spin – this means lots of positions can be filled with wilds. During the feature, 3 scatters can land (on reels 1, 3 and 5) to retrigger the feature to give you 8 more free spins – taking your total to 16.
Being a Barcrest slot, Rainbow Riches Home Sweet Home comes with a Big Bet feature – this is 5 linked spins for either £20, £30 or £50. Here’s what you can expect from either of the 3 options:
- £20 Big Bet game – you get 5 linked spins with the Leprechaun scatter nudging up or down to trigger the Knock-Knock Bonus feature if it appears partially on the reel.
- £30 Big Bet game – you get 5 linked spins with the Leprechaun scatter nudging up or down to trigger the Knock-Knock Bonus feature if it appears partially on the reel. The lower value symbols are also removed from the reels.
- £50 Big Bet game – the same applies here as in the £30 Big Bet game but at least 2 doors will open when triggering the Knock-Knock Bonus feature.
Rainbow Riches Home Sweet Home is another pleasant variation in the Rainbow Riches series – it’s all about the Free Spins Bonus feature really where you can play with lots of extra wild symbols as well as random wilds. Variance wise it’s in the middle with maximum wins of 500 times your stake on each spin/free spin. I would also recommend you try the original Rainbow Riches slot which is still a cult favourite.
