Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n’ Mix is brought to you by Barcrest and is the sequel to the extremely-popular Rainbow Riches game. The Pick ‘n’ Mix edition brings together all your favourite bonus features from the various Rainbow Riches games available both online and in land-based casinos/pubs.
Available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it has 5 reels and 20 paylines and can be played from 20p to £500 a spin. Visually, Pick ‘n’ Mix is the same as the original with an Irish luck theme featuring the iconic leprechaun. The game has also been enhanced as it uses the Big Bet feature found on other Barcrest slots such as Monopoly Big Event.
The Big Bet feature allows you to pick from 2 game for either £20 or £30 – the former gives you 5 Big Bet spins with the multiplier beginning at 1x and going up by 1 after every spin. The latter spins a wheel to give you a Win Multiplier feature where all wins are subject to a 5x multiplier. Wild symbols also remain sticky when they appear to further enhance your winning potential.
When it comes to bonus features, there are 5 in total – the Pick ‘n’ Mix version allows you to customise your experience by picking up to 3 classic Rainbow Riches bonus features. These are described below:
You have the Road to Riches Bonus feature which can be triggered by getting 3 or more Road to Riches triggers. 3 of them will give you the standard road multipliers with 4 giving you bigger wins. 5 of them will give you the top prize of 500 times your stake without having to play the feature! Anyway, you need to spin the wheel which determines how far along the cash path you go – the further you go, the bigger your prize. There’s up to 500 times your bet on offer.
The Pots of Gold feature is played when you get 3 or more Pot of Gold triggers – 3 of them will see gold, silver and bronze pots spins around the screen. 4 of them will also reveal gold and silver pots spins on the screen with 5 rewarding you instantly with 500 times your bet. Now, the pots stop spinning with an arrow pointing to 1 pot – there is a multiplier associated with the selected pot up to 500 times your bet.
The Free Spins Bonus feature is played when you get 3 or more Free Spins scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 – it benefits from 2 wilds symbols too (the normal wild and the Free Spins scatter). 3 scatters gives you 10 free spins whilst 4 scatters gives you 20 free spins – 5 scatters rewards you with 30 free spins. You can also trigger the feature again giving you a potential 60 free spins if you’re lucky.
Then there is the Cash Crop Bonus feature which is played when you get 3 or more Cash Crop triggers – you will come across a 10×5 grid of 50 coins which begin to spin and displays either a blank or multiplier. You can choose whether to continue or collect – if you choose to go on, you will come across another grid of 50 coins. 3 rounds of coins is possible with 5x and 10x multipliers available in the third and final round!
Lastly, there is the Magic Toadstool Bonus feature which is played when you get 3 or more Toadstool triggers – if you get 5 Toadstool triggers, you will be instantly rewarded with 500 times your bet. Anyway, you will come across a 6×4 grid of 24 toadstools with 3 picks awarded.
Picking a toadstool will give you a cash prize or Fairy – the latter will give you a further 3 picks which will lead to more cash prizes or another Fairy. When you have 2 remaining picks, the amount won will be subject to a 3x multiplier and when you have 1 remaining pick, it will be subject to a 2x multiplier. Again, you can win up to 500 times your stake.
Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n’ Mix is better than the original in my opinion because it’s identical in terms of gameplay with the added extra of more bonus features. The variance is the same (medium) but there are more bonus features to benefit from. If you like Irish luck themed slots, I would also suggest you try Play ‘N Go’s Leprechaun Goes Egypt which takes the leprechaun to ancient Egypt.
