Rainbow Wilds Megaways Slot Game
Rainbow Wilds Megaways Slot Introduction
Rainbow Wilds Megaways - released in March 2021 - is the brainchild of UK developer Iron Dog Studio, which is also responsible for other Megaways luminaries such as Dwarven Gems Megaways, Astro Newts Megaways and the rocking 1 Million Megaways BC. Since their inception, they’ve released around 15 Megaways slots, and that includes the mystical Celtic-themed online slot game we’re looking at today.

Rainbow Wilds Megaways is the follow-up to Iron Dog Studio’s own Rainbow Wilds slot from back in 2018. Iron Dog Studio was looking for a candidate for their next Megaways title, and they settled on the original online slot from 2018. Rainbow Wilds boasted a 5-reel, 4-row set-up and an impressive (for a non-Megaways slot) 1,024 paylines. With Rainbow Wilds Megaways, they went above this. As a result, the slot offers a whopping 117,649 ways to win alongside other exciting features and design mechanics.
Rainbow Wilds Megaways Slot Game Design
Rainbow Wilds Megaways is a 6-reel online slot game with anywhere between 2 - 7 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in view. Unlike most Megaways slots, however, the game does not have an extra horizontal reel that sits either below or above the main game grid. In terms of paylines, the slot offers the standard 117,649 ways to win, alongside a potential maximum payout of 12,000x the stake.
Being a slot revolving around a mystical Celtic theme, the game takes place in an enchanted woodland forest at twilight. The amount of care and attention paid to it is simply staggering. The game grid dominates the screen encased in a frame comprising multiple Celtic knots. On top of this sits the Megaways counter. On either side are twisting, gnarly trees with branches sticking out in all directions. Clumps of four-leaf clovers and toadstools are strewn about the ground. Here and there, brambles are curling this way and that. Behind the reels (and mostly obscured by the deep vegetation) is a pink sky at sunset. The accompanying music is mysterious and atmospheric, dominated by piano and stirrings on the violin, and manages to conjure up something magical that purposefully stays away from the traditional Irish music found in most Celtic-themed slots. All in all, a very well-presented slot.
Rainbow Wilds Megaways Slot Mobile
Rainbow Wilds Megaways can be played at home on a desktop PC or on the go via all mobile platforms, including tablet, Android and Apple. You can also download the Lottomart app via a stable internet connection or mobile data for greater flexibility and portability.
Rainbow Wilds Megaways Slot Symbols
The game has 14 symbols, all colourful and fitting the mystical Celtic woodland theme to a tee; we’ll start from the bottom and work our way up.
- Royal 10 - A playing card symbols = these have a payout of between 6x - 15x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Mug of beer symbol = this has a payout of 20x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Claddagh ring symbol = this has a payout of 25x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Horseshoe symbol = this has a payout of 30x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Elf symbol = this has a payout of 50x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Elk symbol = this has a payout of 70x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Leprechaun symbol = this has a payout of 100x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
The symbol payouts are very generous for a Megaways slot, where they tend to be on the smaller size to compensate for the higher paylines and larger game grid sizes.
- Normal Wild symbol = represented by the word WILD with a pot of gold behind it. This symbol has several in-game functions. First, it appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 during the base game and the Free Spins bonus round. Second, they can have multipliers during said Free Spins bonus round. Third, they can substitute for all paying symbols.
- Sticky Wild symbol = represented by the letter W over a rainbow-coloured star. This symbol has several in-game functions. First, it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 during the Free Spins bonus round only. Second, it carries a multiplier that increases by +1 with each consecutive tumble. Third, Sticky Wild symbols stay on the reels for consecutive tumbles, while the multiplier resets at the end of a win sequence. Lastly, they can substitute for all paying symbols.
- Mushroom Wild = represented by the letter W over a tree stump surrounded by toadstools. This symbol also has several in-game functions. First, a single Mushroom Wild can appear on reels 3 and 4 during the base game and Free Spins bonus round. Second, a single Mushroom WIld can turn into three Mushroom Wilds on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Third, when a Mushroom Wild lands, it animates over any normal Wild symbols currently on the reels. Third, the multiplier on the normal Wild symbol can increase by +1 when a Mushroom Wild grows on the same reel during the Free Spins round. Fourth, during Free Spins, Mushroom Wilds animate over all normal Wilds apart from those with multipliers, or obtain a multiplier on the same spin. Lastly, Mushroom Wilds can substitute for all paying symbols.
Rainbow Wilds Megaways Slot Bonus Features
Rainbow Wilds Megaways offers a few Celtic-themed bonuses and features sure to get the excitement going to mystical levels!
If you’ve played other Megaways slots, you’ll be familiar with this feature. Symbols in winning combinations disappear from the reels, creating space for other symbols (including an increased chance of normal Wild symbols) to fall into the recently vacated positions. These new symbols are the same size as the ones they replaced. Tumbles continue until no more winning combinations appear as a result.
Free Spins Feature
This feature is triggered by landing at least four consecutive tumbles. Let’s take a look.
- Landing four tumbles = awards 8 Free Spins.
- Landing a tumble after the initial four = awards 2 additional Free Spins up to a total of 14.
- Landing five tumbles or more = awards a +1 multiplier to the Free Spins up to a maximum of x3.
Players can also get additional Free Spins from consecutive tumbles and losses.
- 4 successive winning Spins = awards 2 additional Free Spins, each successive spin after the initial four grants 1 additional Free Spin, with no limits.
- 4 successive losing Spins = awards 2 additional Free Spins, each successive spin after the initial four grants 1 additional Free Spin, with no limits.
An additional x1 multiplier is awarded after a successful tumble.
The incorporation of the Megaways engine means that each reel can reveal a certain number of symbols in view. Landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to the maximum 117,649 ways to win!
Rainbow Wilds Megaways Slot Summary
The Rainbow Wilds Megaways slot is a brilliant addition to Iron Dog Studio’s catalogue of Megaways titles. It successfully fuses a mystical Celtic theme with BTG’s proprietary game engine and exciting and unique bonus features centred around different Wild symbols plus a comprehensive Free Spins feature. Building upon the success of the original slot game, Rainbow Wilds Megaways manages to be a different sort of Irish-themed slot. It moves the usual tropes like leprechauns to the background and promotes a different side to Irish folklore populated by characters such as noble elks, elves, unicorns and more.
