Free Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours slot joins the ever growing line up of Irish-themed slots in a similar mold. From the original Rainbow Riches slot and followed by Rainbow Riches Free Spins and Rainbow Riches Pick ’n’ Mix, this appears to be the gift that keeps on giving. Many readers will be well aware of the Rainbow Riches brand and will no doubt have an idea of what they are likely to get with this slot. However, Fortune Favours has dispensed with the standard bonus feature of free spins, roads to riches or wishing wells features and opted for transforming stacked symbols and multi reel sets - more on that shortly. So will the fortune favour us with this Rainbow Riches slot? A closer look might just help us figure that out.
On the reels…
We have 5 reels over 3 rows with just 10 fixed paylines in total. There are no leprechauns on the reels surprisingly, but plenty of mushrooms, harps, rainbows and fairies. Top paying symbol is the Rainbow Riches logo, paying a very impressive 2500x your stake for 5-of-a-kind (5OAK). The pays tumble quite quickly down to 200x for a 5OAK of Rainbows and 150x for a 5OAK of Mushrooms and Harps. The lowest paying symbols are the A-K-Q-J-10 paying between 50 - 100x for 5 on a payline.
Magic Fairy transforming symbols
One of the key features in the base game is the Magic Fairy symbol, which appears stacked on all reels. This symbol will transform to a random symbol and can often suddenly turn a normal spin into a very nice win. As this symbol is stacked, it quite often appears more than once in a spin and can also appear on several reels.
Big Bet feature
Something that regular Barcrest slots players will have seen before is the Big Bet feature. This interesting alternative play method allows you to bet on 4 different reel sets, one spin at a time. The bigger you bet the bigger the wins are likely to be. Here are your options:
10 Big Bet - Magic Fairy Wild is active
20 Big Bet - Magic Fairy Wild is active and will transfers to all other reel sets
30 Big Bet - Magic Fairy Wild and standard Wild are active. Magic Fairy Wild transfer to other reel sets
40 Big Bet - Magic Fairy Wild and standard Wild are active. Magic Fairy Wild and standard Wild transfer to other reel sets
50 Big Bet - Same as $0 Big Bet, but Q-J-10 symbols are removed from the reels for bigger winning opportunities
Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours slot surprised me somewhat, as I was expecting ‘yet another Rainbow Riches slot’. However, it does offer something different and despite the lack of a typical bonus feature, there is enough in this game to keep things interesting. The RTP for this slot varies quite a lot depending on your bet size and type of bet. It is 94.00% for below 2 coins and jumps up to 96.00% for 2 coins and over. Should you indulge in the Big Bet game then this can go up to an impressive 97.75%, but then you will be betting pretty big at this stage. I feel it is very much Fortune Favours the brave on this Rainbow Riches slot or maybe those with the deepest pockets…
