The Rainbow Riches series gives us one more slot machine that will probably become popular, and its name is Drops of Gold. Barcrest used a different mechanic in it, with a second set of reels bringing on multiple wilds when triggered. It’s an unusual and interesting game thanks to these new features, so keep reading and find out what it has to offer.
Usually, this is going to be a slot with 5 reels and 50 lines, but you could end up with as many as 100 or 200 lines in certain moments. There are two types of wilds, the Drops symbol, bonus symbols and free spins that you can explore, so the game has a lot to offer, even going beyond its rewards of up to $10,000 per combo.
Betting and Prizes
There are two ways to place a bet in this game. One is through the usual bet per spin, which can vary between $0.10 and $500 in this game. This one allows you to spend $10 at most for each line. The other is through Big Bets, paying $20, $30 or $50 for the next 5 spins and getting you extra features for them.
While in Big Bet Spins mode, you get wins of up to 1,000 coins from each combo, so up to $10,000 per win. Needless to say, with up to 200 lines being available at that point, you could be making a lot of money from this slot.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold Slot Features
You will quickly notice that this game has two sets of reels, a regular one at the bottom and another one that’s getting Pots of Silver and Gold at the top. The wilds from the top reels can be added in the same positions on the bottom set, when you have a Drops of Gold logo appear in the main game area.
Two types of wild symbols have been implemented in the game. The Pot of Silver is used as a regular wild, which may act as a replacement only for regular symbols. The Pot of Gold on the other hand is also usable as a bonus symbol replacement, so it can help you trigger free spins.
Bonus icons have the appropriate logo to make them easy to spot. 3 or more get you 8 free spins.
Big Bet Spins have some advantages over the regular spins. For example, you get double-stacked Drops of Gold icons for a better chance at getting wilds from the top reel, you can remove the low-paying symbols from the game area, and then you can also get 100 lines for regular Big Bet spins and 200 lines for the free spins that they trigger. The higher your bet, the bigger the number of such features that you get for the Big Bet Spins.
Theme & Design
The theme is not particularly interesting, and I’d say that this extends to the graphics as well. Barcrest, despite their experience with the land-based casino industry, doesn’t do well with online slot machine design. They can do fun features just fine though, and Rainbow Riches: Drops of Gold is proof of that. The symbols involve several logos, pots of silver or gold, toadstools, harps, violins and lucky horseshoes, while at the bottom of the list you will find the playing cards.
Rainbow Riches: Drops of Gold should be another successful game for this series of Irish themed slots, with unique features being implemented in it that make it fun.
