Rainbow Riches MegaWays is powered by Barcrest and uses Big Time Gaming’s popular game mechanic. Following a long line of Rainbow Riches slots, this version has 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. With an Irish luck theme, you can spin away from 20p to £20 per spin on all devices.
Visually, Rainbow Riches MegaWays has kept true to the original Rainbow Riches slots – with a rainbow in the backdrop coming out of a pot full of gold coins, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals. You’ll also see blue, green, purple, orange and clear gemstones – the latter is the most rewarding with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination giving you 2, 5, 10, 25 or 50 times your stake respectively. The lucky horseshoe is the wild symbol are substitutes for all symbols bar the bonus, +1 +2, +3 and Super Gem symbols (more on these below).
Being a MegaWays slot, the number of ways to win can vary on each spin between 324 and 117,649 – the more symbols appearing on each reel, the more ways to win. The main reels (1 through 6) can have from 2 to 7 symbols. There’s also 1 horizontal reel that sits above the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th main reels.
Rainbow Riches MegaWays comes with a Cascading Wins feature – when you get a winning combination (formed by matching symbols on adjacent reels beginning from reel 1), the participating symbols are removed and replaced. This gives you the opportunity to win again and again from every spin. The cascades keep on coming until no further wins are created.
There’s also a Super Gem Bonus feature – this is triggered when a Super Gem symbol appears in any position on the vertical reel. All visible gem symbols are then transformed into a randomly selected gem symbol for a winning combination.
Rainbow Riches MegaWays benefits from a Free Spins Bonus feature – this is played when you get 4 or more Bonus pot symbols on the main reels. With 12 free spins awarded for 4 Bonus pot symbols, each extra symbol gives you 5 more free spins meaning you can begin with 22 free spins.
During the feature, you can see +1, +2 and +3 extra free spins symbols on the vertical/top reel – when they appear, they will give you additional free spins. The top reel symbols will then cascade meaning you could create further winning combinations. More importantly, the feature comes with an Unlimited Win Multiplier feature – beginning at 1x, each winning cascade increases the multiplier by 1 with no limit to how high the multiplier can go.
There’s more! There’s a Buy feature which allows you direct access to the Free Spins Bonus feature – this will set you back 100 times your total stake. You could also opt for the Take a Chance feature where you can purchase your way into the Free Spins Bonus feature for a smaller amount – you spin a wheel and hope it lands in the green segment to enter the feature for a smaller fee (you’ll get at least 12 free spins).
Lastly, there’s a Bonus Bank feature – this reduces the cost of entry to the Free Spins Bonus feature. You can opt for Bank Wins Off which adds all wins to your balance. If you select Bank All Wins, all wins are added to the Bonus Bank – you can also select Bank Small Wins which adds wins of 3 times your stake or less to the Bonus Bank.
Rainbow Riches MegaWays is simpler than it reads – basically, it comes with cascading wins throughout. It’s all about the Free Spins Bonus feature (however you get in) where cascades increase the multiplier infinitely. Medium to high variance, you can win up to 12,500 times your stake on each free spin.
The Rainbow Riches slots have been around for a long time and it was only a matter of time before the MegaWays engine was introduced – it’s the most reward of all the Rainbow Riches slot which is a good thing and therefore makes it the most appealing.
