An enchanted forest is the setting for Rainbow Magic, a 3 reel, 5 payline slot from Realistic Games. It’s a simple, fast-paced game that comes with a bonus round that awards up to 20 free spins. Play, on all devices, from between 25p and £200 per spin.

The design in Rainbow Magic is simple but works well enough. A tranquil green forest with a rainbow in the sky forms the backdrop to the reels. Those reels include toadstools, 4-leaf clovers and butterflies which award 2 times your total stake if you land 3 in a line.

Next come the harp and the crystals which pay 10 times your total bet followed by the fairy who pays 50x. By far the best paying standard symbol is the pot of gold coins – find 3 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket 250 times your total bet.

The other symbol to keep a special eye out for is the coin – this can land as a symbol in its own right or attached to 1 of the other symbols. Land 3 of them on a payline and you’ll win a payout equal to double your total stake as well as triggering the Free Spins Bonus feature. Here you can look forward to 10 free spins. If you land the magic coin symbol on reel 2 during the feature, the number of free spins awarded is doubled.

Rainbow Magic is a stripped back game as far as features are concerned. If you like plenty of potential bonus rounds this will be one to swerve. This is more of an old-school fruity machine than a bang up to date video slot. The visuals are nicely done though and have a rustic, Celtic feel. Likewise, the soundtrack which is a nice fit for the theme.

We managed to land the free spins round at regular intervals but found a big payout quite elusive. We’d put the variance in the low to medium range. If you like classic fruit machines and slots with a mystical feel then Rainbow Magic will be 1 to consider. If you like something with plenty of extras, you’ll be much better served elsewhere – such as Yggdrasil Gaming’s Super Heroes.
