Playtech And Scientific Team Up For Bingo Re-Make Of Classic Slot

Two big names from the world of online casino gaming have joined forces and have undertaken a bingo re-make of the United Kingdom’s most popular land-based slot – Rainbow Riches.

Playtech plc and Scientic Games are the two behind this re-make, which will see the iconic Rainbow Riches slot, which is already popular across a number of platforms, given a new twist with a bingo game style makeover.

Already a fan favourite on land-based devices, this new bingo variant has just gone live on desktop, mobile and online platforms, and is being supported by a £100,000 promotion as part of a lead in to March 17th, which just happens to be St. Patrick’s Day.

This new re-make of the classic slot title has been several months in the works, with the team from Playtech adding some new innovate features, as well as being careful to preserve certain elements of the original title which have helped prove it to be so popular.

Initial development of the new game was done on the mobile platform, with handsets and tablets the first testing methods of choice, with a desktop platform version of the game coming soon after.

The new Rainbow Riches Bingo title includes two industry first Jackpots which are network based, which will ensure that the winnings are flowing through to players of the game frequently.

The Jackpots will be split across 3 prize bands of gold, silver and bronze, with one being triggered by the landing of a set amount of lucky shamrock symbols, and the other being triggered by the player collecting gold coins in the Wishing Well Bonus Round.
