Barcrest Just Launched Rainbow Riches Pick and Mix Slot Machine
Rainbow Riches was an extremely popular land-based slot machine in back in the days. Today, people still look for this slot machine when they enter the casinos. This year, Barcrest has managed to create the sequel for this game, which basically has all of the fun features the original game had, but online and certainly improved with a new and fresh design available for all kinds of devices.
The theme of the game, as you might all probably know already, is inspired by the Irish culture and their little lucky red haired leprechauns.
Back in the day, from the 70s to the 90s, everyone played Rainbow Riches at pubs all over the United Kingdom. Barcrest was one of the most popular and successful companies to develop and supply slot machines to land-based casinos all over the world. In 1998 the company was acquired by International Game Technology, and later on, in 2011 became a part of Scientific Games.
What We Love
There are so many features in this game to love. When you first start to play, you will be asked to select three of the five features you want to play with.
Our personally favorites are the first two: Road to Riches and Pots of Gold. The first one collects all of your winnings to move forward in a yellow path (you will be moving with every win you get) to find (hit) the 500 credits jackpot at the end of the way.
The second, Pots of Gold is triggered whenever you combine three to five of the pot symbols. Then, the pots appear on the screen and start spinning; the arrow will point one specific pot and could get you a reward that could multiply your bet for up to 500 times.
Then, we have the Free Spins and the scatters which we all might be familiar with, the Cash Crop Bonus feature which could get you lots of multipliers through a special 10 x 5 grid, and the Magic Toadstool Bonus which triggers a pick feature with 24 different options to choose from and reveal instant rewards.
Rainbow Riches Pick and Mix is full of many features that are able to fulfill every player’s tastes. Also, the RTP in this game is considerably high, which means there are lots of probabilities you will be getting frequent winnings.
What We Do Not Like
For being a new a sequel Rainbow Riches Pick and Mix is a great adaptation of the original game. However, there is a couple of things that I personally found a little bit unpleasant.
First of all, the design of the game. I get Barcrest tried to make this game as close to the original Rainbow Riches, but, the design of the game is slightly tacky as the characters and buttons are too cartoonish and the layout is too charged with many colors.
Last but not least, the game’s maximum payout. 500 credits jackpot? This could place the game at the bottom of the food chain. Even though the RTP is really high in Rainbow Riches Pick and Mix, a higher jackpot could be more appealing for the players.
Worth Playing It?
This game was certainly made to revive old passions. Rainbow Riches was such a popular and successful slot machine that many people will be thrilled to find this game available for all devices.
On the other hand, if you never heard about this game, I suggest you take this one out for a spin. The special features in the game are fun and entertaining, plus, it features a good profitability.
