Rainbow Riches is another of the highly rewarding, fun slots from Barcrest. Its lucrative three bonuses and fantastic graphics are some of the reasons why the game has such a massive global fanbase, not to mention the £200,000 top prize that keeps you wanting to play.


Rainbow Riches has a fun Irish theme that incorporates leprechauns and pots of gold. The slot consists of lush Irish fields scattered with emeralds, lucky horseshoes and plenty of bonuses. The background soundtrack is befitting the theme, but the leprechaun may look a little bit scary.

How to play Rainbow Riches

Rainbow Riches is a 5-reel 20 payline video slot on which you can bet 20p-£500 per spin. You can play this game at your favourite land casino or online on your Windows PC or iOS or Android mobile device.  The game is middle variance (you may have to go about 150+ spins before you trigger a bonus), does not have any free spins, and the stacked symbols are not wild. However, with an RTP of 95% and three pick me bonuses and a wheel of fortune feature, it makes for a good game.

Symbols and bonuses to look out for:

The gold Leprechaun coins are the wild symbols associated with the 500-coin jackpot. The wild can also replace all but the bonus feature symbols. If you land 5 of these, you will get a chance to play the jackpot. The Rainbow Riches logo is the stacked symbol and the highest-value symbol; landing two of them on your reels will be enough to earn a great payout. Even better will be when you land these plus a wild symbol.

The Road to Riches bonus is also triggered by landing three or more Leprechaun bonus symbols on any reel position. You get the wheel spinning using the Start button that decides the number of steps that you can take up the cash path. You spin the wheel till you either get to the end of the yellow brick road to your 200x pot of Gold multiplier or hit a ‘collect’ option, after which you collect the accrued winnings. This bonus is quite rich, as it can return up to 500x your total stake!

The wishing well bonus feature is one of the great pick me bonuses in this game, which you can trigger by getting at least three Wishing Well bonus symbols anywhere on your reels. Here, you choose one of the three wishing well prizes that consist of multipliers from 2x to 10x. This bonus, again, can multiply your stake by almost 500x.

The third bonus on the game is the Pots of Gold bonus that is triggered by landing at least three pots of gold symbols on the middle reels (2, 3, and 4). Some gold, silver and bronze pots with spins across your screen and an arrow will point to one of them once they stop. Each pot also has a multiplier value that increases your multiplier value by up to 500x. This bonus may be lucrative but do not place all your anticipation on it as it is quite tricky to trigger.


With the fun theme and worthwhile bonuses, it is easy to see why Rainbow Riches is one of the UK’s most popular slots. It plays well both on PC and on smart devices, and to enjoy this fun, easy to play game, you will need to be patient enough to get to the end of the rainbow.
