The next installment in the Rainbow Riches series has been announced by Barcrest, and the name of this game is going to be Leprechauns Gold. The slot is available in the usual Barcrest style, relying on Big Bet spins to make the action worthwhile, and featuring an Irish themed design.
Leprechauns Gold is not quite a typical slot machine, not when you count its 7 reels and the 50 active lines which are present on them. The slot has the option for you to wager big, and I’d take it if I were you, as that’s the only way to reach the highest RTP, of 97.75%. Rewards will apparently deliver up to 1,000x the stake, so a jackpot of $500,000 could be yours at best. Free Spins, the Wild Rover Bonus, scatters and substitutes, these are going to be your main features.
Betting and Prizes
The wagers can be placed with an amount that you select for all available lines. The smallest bet allowed is $0.10, while the highest one you can select is worth $500. You also have Big Bet options to choose from, with their values being $20, $30 or $50, in exchange for which you get 5 spins with extra features.
Prizes look OK, though at 1,000x the stake they’re not going to bring players running to it. It does turn into a jackpot of up to $500,000, if the wagers you’ve used were high enough, so that’s a good motivator for high rollers.
The game is worth playing only if you’re using wagers which are set at $2 or higher. With a wager that’s lower than $2, you’re looking at an RTP of only 94%. It goes to 96% if the wager is higher than that amount. You get the best results, an RTP of 97.75%, during Big Bet mode, but you need to afford spending up to $50 for 5 spins at a time, and not everyone has that kind of budget.
Rainbow Riches: Leprechauns Gold Slot Features
Wilds are going to be present, one of the features that you can usually count on having in most modern slot machines. These are the substitutes which you can use in new wins, and they can be quite helpful in a slot with 7 reels.
With help from the slot’s bonus symbol, you can trigger Rainbow Ring Spinner, a small bonus game which can result in one of several types of features triggering. You might get a bonus feature which adds mystery symbols to the reels, or you might get the Wild Rover with its random wilds, or 8 to 25 free spins.
The free spins will get the ability to trigger a Wild Rover Bonus, with extra wilds placed on the reels. Once the free spins are done, you will move on to a bonus game called Wishing Well.
Theme & Design
It’s not much of a theme or design, but that didn’t stop the Rainbow Riches series from becoming popular. They’ve relied on the usual Irish style design, and naturally they have the leprechaun for the main character. Images of horseshoes, rainbows, harps, toadstools or shamrocks are used for symbols, as expected. The card suits are going to be available for the lesser positions.
Rainbow Riches: Leprechauns Gold will be a decent choice for players with average budgets, and a great one for those that can afford playing it only with Big Bets active.
