Free Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold slot is a Barcrest game joining a family of other Rainbow Riches titles including Pick 'n' Mix, Free Spins, Fortune Favours and Reels of Gold - and that's not all of them. There are so many Rainbow Riches slots that it seems incredible that this developer felt we needed yet another one, but here it is. This particular rollout has a look of a game very much designed for consumption on a handheld device such as a mobile phone, but it still have the bold bright colours and the lilty Irish jig music so commonly associated with games in this genre. So will we see the money come dropping in with this installment of Rainbow Riches or will we be left dropping off?
On the reels...
The game consists of 5 reels, 4 rows and 50-200 paylines, with a set of Rainbow Reels above dropping in Pots of Gold (more on this later). Symbols include include lucky horseshoes, violins, harps, mushrooms and the Rainbow Riches logo – the latter offering 5x for 5-of-a-kind. There are also the usual lower paying symbols of A-K,-Q-J-10. The game also has silver and gold pot Wilds. The silver Wilds substitute for all symbols except the Bonus symbol and the gold Wilds substitutes for all symbols without exception. All of these Wilds drop in from a set of reels above with the rainbow colour through them.
Drops of Gold bonus
Should the 5th reel have either a Drops of Gold or stacked Drops of Gold symbol after a spin has settled on the reels then all visible pots within the drop zone be added to the corresponding position on the main reel set below. If a stacked Drops of Gold symbol lands fully or half full then it will trigger the feature. Any Silver pot Wilds that fall into the Bonus symbol will be turned in gold ones and substitute for the bonus symbol.
Free Spins feature
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold slot has a Free Spins feature which is activated when you get 3 or more Pots of Gold Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. You get 8 free spins for 3 Pots of Gold, 12 for 4 or 16 for 5. The feature can re-trigger with a total of 32 free spins available.
During the free spins the Drops of Gold bonus feature can also be triggered, which means that extra Wilds can drop in if the Drops of Gold symbol appears on reel 5. There is also the Big Bet feature, which has come commonplace on many Barcrest slots.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold slot is a new take on a theme which has been over-done in my opinion. But, if the format still works, then why change it? All I can say is that there must be a lot of Rainbow Riches fans out there for Barcrest to keep rolling out these slots. This particular version is medium volatility offering up to 500x your stake in a single spin. The RTP varies from 94% for the low wagering players to 96% for the bigger wagers. Play the Big Bet feature and you can get 97.75%, but the bet levels are much higher. This Drops of Gold is definitely worth a play, but I would have to say that there is plenty of better slots out there...
