Rainbow Riches review
Theme and Style
This slot has a Celtic theme, focusing on the myth of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
In a magical realm, players will encounter a mischievous leprechaun and hope he’ll lead them to the famous pots of gold.
This game definitely leans into a fantasy interpretation of Celtic imagery, but the colorful design is eye-catching. Many players will enjoy the whimsical atmosphere of this game.
Visuals and Soundtrack
The reels spin to an enchanting chiming sound that brings to mind a swirl of fairy dust. Wins are accompanied by the jingle of a cash register, emphasizing the payout.
The animation style overall brings to mind an ‘80s aesthetic and may feel outdated to some players. Behind the reels is an imaginative purple sky and a neon bright rainbow. The reels themselves are framed by intricate braided designs. Among the symbols are Celtic-style letters, wishing wells, pots of gold, and coins.
The leprechaun himself has a somewhat unsettling expression and some players may find him creepy. Nonetheless, he does seem to be on the players’ side as he winks from his reel. Overall, the animation and music create a sugary sweet atmosphere they will perhaps not be for everyone, but certainly grabs attention.

Bonus Gameplay and Special Features
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the three varieties of Scatter symbol: the Road to Riches symbol, the Wishing Well symbol, and the Pots of Gold symbol.
The Pots of Gold symbol only lands on reels 2, 3, and 4. Landing 3 or more of the Pots of Gold symbol triggers the Pots of Gold feature. During this feature, a variety of pots of gold will spin around the screen until an arrow randomly selects one. The multiplier associated with that pot will then be applied to the total bet. This multiplier can be anywhere between x50 and x500.
When players land 3 or more of the Road to Riches symbol, the Road to Riches feature begins. During this feature, players will spin a wheel to randomly choose a number of steps towards a prize. Players then keep spinning, either approaching the top prize or ending the round.
The Wishing Well feature starts when players land 3 or more of the Wishing Well symbols. During this feature, players will select a Well to reveal a multiplier. This multiplier is then applied to the total bet. The multipliers may be between x2 and x500.
We do not recommend this low RTP, high volatility Celtic-themed slot. The RTP of this game is too meager for it to be a strategy-friendly choice.
The volatility is an asset, but the somewhat outdated aesthetic of this game is another mark against it.
This slot is highly popular, so it may be worth checking out for some players. However, if they want to maximize their wins, they would do well to move on to games with a more attractive RTP.
