Theme and Background
There is a lot of superstition based around the ‘luck of the Irish’ and a lot of it has to do with that little trickster known as the Leprechaun. As the myth goes if you manage to capture him, he will buy his freedom by giving you his pot of gold which he hides at the end of the rainbow!
This Barcrest slot game cuts out the middleman and transports you to the rainbow so you can capture your riches on the reels.
In keeping with its quirky theme, the design of the reels for Rainbow Riches Megaways is just as unusual. The slot machine features 6-reels with an additional four symbol row that sits directly above reels 2-5.
The rows are also not a fixed number but can fluctuate between 2 and 7 symbols each per spin. This is not some Leprechaun magic to keep you bamboozled rather, it is what allows the game to offer the Megaways feature. Thanks to Megaways the slot offers up to 117,649 ways to win on any spin!
With so many ways to win, it is impossible to have fixed paylines, so the game offers wins for collecting symbols on adjacent reels. These symbols will explode, causing new symbols to cascade down from above to keep your winning streak going.
Wagers on Rainbow Riches Megaways is thankfully perfectly normal you can stake from €0.20 up to €20.00 per spin in pursuit of the game max payout of €250,000!
