When we saw the title of this slot we secretly hoped to find something based on Shed Seven and their 1996 hit single. Closer inspection revealed that fantasy themed slot from Realistic Gaming is called Cashing Rainbows and isn’t based on the cult indie popsters. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game that comes with elves, dragons and unicorns and a free spins feature with frozen wilds. See if there’s gold sitting at the end of this rainbow from between 20p and £10 per spin.
The design in Cashing Rainbows has a certain dungeons and dragons quality – symbols on show include Celtic-style playing cards from A to 9, a dragon’s eye, kings, princes, unicorns and elves. By far the most rewarding symbol is the CR shield – landing 3, 4 or 5 of these in a single payline will get you 100, 500 or 1,000 times your line bet. The rainbow symbol is the game’s wild – it can land on all 5 reels and substitutes for everything with the exception of the scatter.
The gold CR logo is that scatter – when it lands on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin, you’ll trigger the game’s only extra. It’s the Free Spins Bonus feature which awards 10 free spins once triggered. Every time a wild lands during the feature, it will lock and then remain frozen in position for the rest of your free spins.
And that’s about is as far as gameplay goes. It’s all solid enough but dare we say it, a little dull. The bonus round is decent thanks to the frozen wilds but we’d like to have a seen a little more action.
Cashing Rainbows isn’t a bad slot – the cartoon visuals are nicely done and the soundtrack has a medieval feel. The free spins offers some potential too. Overall though, we found this adventure a little underwhelming.
If you enjoy the fantasy theme, by all means take Cashing Rainbows for a spin. If you’re not usually a fan of elves, sprites and unicorns, then this slot isn’t likely to change your mind. If you do like a fantasy theme, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Double Dragons is recommended.
