Rainbow Riches Retro Slot Introduction

Rainbow Riches Retro is Barcrest/Light & Wonder’s 2020 re-release of the classic Irish-themed online slot that continues to enchant players worldwide even today. Although little seems to have changed on the surface compared to the 2009 original Rainbow Riches slot, the developer has made several cheeky changes. Let’s take a look at what those might be.

Rainbow Riches Retro Slot Game Background

Las Vegas-based Light & Wonder started life in the 1940s as Scientific Games, creating pinball machines before working on physical slot games. Today, Light & Wonder enjoys a reputation as one of the biggest UK online slots providers in the iGaming space, with a variety of themed slots like Raging Rhino alongside several Monopoly-branded games and titles that use the studio’s proprietary Accumul8 game mechanic. However, none are bigger than the Rainbow Riches series. Little could Light & Wonder/Barcrest have known that Rainbow Riches would become the powerhouse franchise it is today, with its countless spin-offs and sequels, including a Megaways iteration and the re-release of the original game we’re looking at here.

Rainbow Riches Slot Game Design

At first glance, you might think that not much has changed from the original version. The slot game still boasts its signature purple backdrop, complete with a charming low hill and a rainbow stretching across the sky. For those with a keen eye, you might spot some minor tweaks in the user interface – subtle alterations in the buttons lining the bottom of the screen and the payline indicators on the ornate Celtic-inspired frame's left and right sides.

The play grid maintains its classic 5x3 format, featuring 20 active paylines, and it retains the same trio of bonus features: Road to Riches, Wishing Well, and Pots of Gold. But what's the real game-changer here? It boils down to one simple fact. These bonus features can now award multipliers and the potential to secure a maximum payout of 2,500x the initial stake!

Rainbow Riches Retro Slot Mobile

Rainbow Riches Retro, like all the online casino games, is fully mobile-compatible thanks to its integrated HTML5 framework, meaning it’s playable on various devices, including desktop PCs and smartphones, using a safe and secure WiFi connection or mobile data.

Rainbow Riches Retro Slot Symbols

Rainbow Riches Retro has its fair share of regular and bonus symbols. The low-paying ones are the 10 - A playing cards and their bright, colourful Celtic design. These are inspired by online table games and have values between 100x - 150x the stake for 5-of-a-kind on the reels. Following on are the Rainbow Riches and old leprechaun coin symbols. The former has a payout of 250x the stake, the latter 500x. Both carry a 2x multiplier for landing 2-of-a-kind on the reels. The Wild symbol can also substitute for any paying symbol.

Rainbow Riches Retro also has several Scatter symbols, named after a specific bonus feature, Road to Riches, Wishing Well, and Pots of Gold. The features are triggered by landing 3+ Scatter symbols on the reels.

Rainbow Riches Retro Slot Bonus Features

Rainbow Riches Retro showcases the same bonus features as the original without embellishments.

Road to Riches Feature

The Road to Riches Bonus gets underway by spinning the Steps Wheel shown in the bottom-left to determine the number of steps up the cash path. The path shows various multipliers from 1x - to 200x (the last one waits below a giant pot of gold with a rainbow streaming into the distance). The wheel shows these positions: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or COLLECT. The game progresses so long as the wheel lands on 1 - 6, allowing players to compete for the top prize. Should the wheel land on COLLECT, the bonus round stops and all accrued winnings up to that point are tallied and multiplied. All in all, players can win up to 500x their original bet stake.

Wishing Well Feature

Three Wishing Wells symbols appear on the reels, each with the text PICK ME. Clicking on one pays out the value indicated on the selected Well multiplied by the total bet. Again, players can win up to 500x the total.

Pots of Gold Feature

After triggering the feature, players see Bronze, Silver and Gold Pots spin around the reels, with the plucky leprechaun dancing a hearty jig in the middle. Each pot has a multiplier attached to it. When they stop, the arrow (sitting just below the leprechaun) points to one Pot. Its value gets multiplied by the total bet. And again, players can win up to 500x the bet stake.

Rainbow Riches Retro Slot Summary

Rainbow Riches Retro is virtually identical to the 2009 original, from the audio-visual presentation down to the bonus features, with the most visible changes being a few UI tweaks. Under the hood, however, the maximum potential win has increased to 2,500x the stake thanks to the introduction of win multipliers. However, both slots are mirrors of each other in most respects, so which to play is a matter of personal preference. Either way, both still offer the classic Rainbow Riches experience.

If you like this slot and want to see what other ones we have in the storied series, then look no further than 2019’s Rainbow Riches Megaways, featuring across-the-board enhancements to the audio, visuals, and of course bonus features! If you fancy something different within the Rainbow Riches universe, you could try Rainbow Riches Cluster Magic, featuring a more stylised presentation and the Cluster Pays mechanic.
