The original game was available in arcades, bingo halls and bookmaker shops across the UK featuring a £500 jackpot with a £1 stake. Various changes in the UK Gambling laws by the UK Gambling Commission and the popularity of the game has seen the stakes reduces and now you can play for as low as £0.20.
You have the classic video slots game play along with 3 great bonus rounds to keep you entertained and hopefully collecting one or two pots of gold from the end of the Rainbow too.
In-game bonus features
Wild Symbol: Replacing all symbols except the bonus feature symbols, this is also the jackpot symbols, giving you 500x your win if you line up five of these golden coins in a row.
Stacked Symbol: The Rainbow Riches logo is the second highest paying symbol on the 5 reels and comes stacked. It is also the only symbol except the wild symbol to pay on two symbols, which comes in handy as it’s in combination with the wild that you’ll get most of the wins with these stacks.
Road to Riches Bonus: Get three, four or five leprechaun bonus symbols anywhere on the reels to get the Road to Riches bonus round. Here you’ll see the 200x your bet pot of gold at the end of the yellow brick road, with stepping stones full of multipliers. Spin the wheel of fortune and move along the multiplier until the wheel stops on collect or you hit that big pot of gold.
Wishing Well Bonus: A simple click me feature, unless you get at least four, this is more of a token gesture than a chance at a real win. If you get three or more in view, you’ll get to click one with a multiplier on your total bet. Expect as little as x2 to as high as x10 if you only hit three symbols – which is the usual.
Pots of Gold Bonus: 3 pots of gold anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 will take you to this special feature. As elusive as the aforementioned pots of gold, this little beauty comes rarely, but when it does, tends to be profitable. Here you’ll spin a wheel that will land on either a bronze, silver or gold pot, with a tasty multiplier hiding in each. This is the bonus feature that will have you tense with thrills at potentially getting an amazing 500x your bet.
