Rainbow Riches Pick 'n' Mix
In an industry governed by luck, it’s no surprise to find an abundance of games based on symbols and legends associated with good fortunes – such as lucky leprechauns and pots of gold hidden at the end of the rainbow. However, the lack of a creative theme should be compensated for, one way or another. Barcrest has certainly delivered with their Rainbow Riches Pick 'n' Mix video slot which plays over 20 pay lines and offers gamers to pick and mix bonuses as they please.
Decide Which Bonuses to Play With
Launch the game and you’ll be presented with a collection of 5 bonuses out of which to pick 1, 2 or 3. Gold Coin is Wild and will stand in for all other icons except those triggering bonus rounds. Do note that 4 out 5 bonus symbols will only launch their respective features if 3 or 4 identical ones land on the reels. When 5 of them appear at the same time, they’ll pay a reward of 500x your stake instead.
The Big Bet Game is accessible at any point and will take you to a second screen to spin the wheel and earn a feature. You’ll get 1 to 3 wheels to pick from, their number depends on the number of active bonuses and each consisting of two parts - one coloured like a rainbow and one green. Should the dial end on a rainbow slice, you’ll win the feature, otherwise, 5 Mega Spins will play. Rainbow slice size, and therefore your chances of launching the bonus round, is determined by the bet amount.
Walk the Road to Riches to Find Gold
Three Scattered Leprechauns launch Road to Riches Bonus, while four trigger Super Road to Riches. Spin the wheel, and the number it lands on will determine how many steps the multiplier highlight will move. You’ll continue travelling down the path and picking up multipliers until hitting “Collect”. Super bonus is a kind of an upgraded version with higher multipliers.
Pot of Gold under a rainbow will launch either Pot of Gold Bonus (for 3) or Super Pot of Gold Bonus (for 4). Gold, silver and bronze pots will spin around before one is selected to award a multiplier.
Cash Crop Bonus and Super Cash Crop Bonus rounds play over 3 levels, each offering 50 spinning coins which can land on a blank or a multiplier. In between levels, a large coin will display either “Go On” or “Collect”, hopefully sending you to the next one. Super Cash Crop Bonus guarantees you’ll arrive at a minimum to level 2.
Magic Toadstool Bonus and its upgraded Super version offer three picks from a field of 24 toadstools which are hiding either a multiplier or a fairy. A fairy will reveal 3 additional mushrooms and thus award more cash prizes and further picks. You’ll also get extra picks in case a minimum win threshold has not been reached – either 8x your stake with Magic Toadstool Bonus or 50x the bet with its Super variant.
But multipliers are not all one can look forward to. Land 3, 4 or 5 Free Spins icons and you’ll receive 10, 20 or 30 rounds on the house, with the triggering icon stacked on reel 1 and acting as an additional substitute symbol.
The multitude of bonus rounds combined with the picking option is clearly Rainbow Riches Pick 'n' Mix's biggest forte. Additionally, a very generous bet range of 0.20 to 500 makes the slot accessible to players with smaller budgets and at the same time attractive for high-rollers.
