Rainbow Riches – Win Big Shindig Slots

Rainbow-Riches-Win-Big-ShindiRainbow Riches – Win Big Shindig is one of the many Irish themed slot machines available today. Like it happens with Egyptian and Pirate themed slots, every developer seems to own at least one game with leprechauns in it, and IGT is no different. Its design seems to be OK for the most part, but it’s more in the old style category, than it is something you could consider modern. The story of the leprechaun and the pot of gold buried at the end of the rainbow is used here, but the majority of the symbols are playing cards.

The game doesn’t give you a lot of paylines, the maximum selectable being 10, and it’s a 5 reel game designed by IGT. The bonus game, wild symbol and scatter are good features to have around, plus up to $125,000 can be won through its best combo.

Features of Rainbow Riches – Win Big Shindig

You don’t get that much in this part of the game. A wild symbol is present, but it’s a simple one, the other feature being a scatter that can get you into the bonus game.

The Gold Coin is the wild feature, capable of acting as a substitute for the playing card icons and the Logo symbol, which gives away the top jackpot. As usual, the wild still needs to appear on a certain payline in order for its powers to work, a line that already has a few matching symbols that it can help by acting as a Joker of sorts.

The second feature I’ve mentioned is a scatter, capable of giving away its prize by simply being present. It is going to have to be on the screen on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels, at the same time.


Pots of Luck Bonus

When that happens, when a scatter is present on the three reels it is allowed on at the same time, you get into a Pick Me feature. You click on one of the three Top Hats that are used as scatters, and it will reveal either a cash prize or a Leprechaun. The Leprechaun, when found, will get you the Pots of Luck bonus game.

The Leprechaun will sit in the middle of the screen, with various pots with gold, silver and bronze rotating around him. The arrow at the bottom will tell you what pot and prize you’ve won, depending on the pot that stops next to it. Up to 25,000 credits are offered as a prize inside.


Betting options and jackpots

Each of the 10 coins usable in this game gets its own payline that it activates, and you are required to use them all for your wagers. Up to $5 per line can be used in bets that you place, and since all of them need to be used, you can end up with a $50 wager. The lowest denomination is $1, so the minimum bet is at $10.

Up to 25,000 coins are awarded to the slot’s luckiest player, so you will discover that up to $125,000 cash can be won, a good prize for any game. To get it, you need the maximum bet to be used, otherwise you end up with 500 coins instead of 25,000, for the same five Logo symbols.


Design and symbols

The Leprechaun is one of the stronger characters from the legends of the Irish people, and his story with the rainbow and the treasure hidden at its end has inspired many slot developers. This is the case in this game, quite simple overall, with a limited enough number of features that you can expect to win regularly, even with the 10 paylines. The downside is the presence of the five playing card icons, with only three icons having some sort of theme, so more than half have no connection to the story.

Symbols: Logo (25,000x), Gold Coin (wild), Leprechaun Hat (scatter), Ace (250x), King (250x), Queen (100x), Jack (100x) and 10 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The Pots of Luck feature might be entertaining and profitable, but the rest of the game is not that special. I wouldn’t recommend it, there are way too many games out there with the same story and with better gameplay.

The Rainbow Riches – Win Big Shindig slot machine is offered through the IGT platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
