Welcome everyone to a new release that is giving you a slightly new look at something you've likely experienced. Are you a fan of the collect feature that some of the best online slot games are coming out with? If so, then Rainbow Gold is a title that should blow your socks off, although the Irish theme is probably one we all feel like we could do without these days. However, in Rainbow Gold, we explore the unique way a collect feature has been packaged. There's also a free spins feature that also has a fresh delivery, making up to 4 different grids available that all spin their reels simultaneously. Needless to say, there's plenty to be excited about, and for us to get through.
First thing we’ll reiterate is that Rainbow Gold uses an Irish theme, which comes with all the usual that we’ve come to expect from online slots using this theme. Feeling like it’s time that casino software studios move on from this theme and find something new is, ironically, nothing new. We’ve been looking at stereotypical Irish luck-themed objects for way longer than we feel most can tolerate. We checked out another Pragmatic Play slot not too long ago called Barn Festival, and while farm animals and such aren’t too exciting, even that theme was a welcomed relief. Rainbow Gold makes use of 5 reels and 3 rows, while a respectable 20 paylines complete was is a traditional grid on which to land 3, 4 and 5 of a kind winning combinations.
Players will have the chance to go quite big in Rainbow Gold, and this is because of various factors. The first is that there are pretty high levels of volatility, which means that any wins you achieve will return bigger values than medium and lower volatility games. There's also a maximum stake of 100 that you can wager, so if online casino thrills are your thing, then it's all looking quite positive. The minimum you'll be able to bet is 0.20, while there are various stake options in between. The maximum win is 5,000x your stake, and players will be able to strive for the top prize with the possibility of playing on desktop or mobile devices using iOS and Android.
This is one of the areas we could skip in this review because it would mean we wouldn't have to let you know which Irish themed icons are being used for what feels like the millionth time. Who knows, they very well could be. These are the higher paying icons, including a mug of ale, a wishing well, a horseshoe, a leprechaun's hat, and a gold four-leaf clover. The lower paying symbols are playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A to deliver solid albeit smaller wins for all players.
There are a couple of extra icons that can fall to spice things up. The wild symbol will substitute all regular symbols to possible help create wins. There's also a leprechaun which is vital to the bonus triggering.
Above each reel, you'll see that various prizes appear after each spin. These prizes are mostly multipliers, ranging from 2x your stake to 100x your stake. You might also notice that with every spin, the horizontal prize reel will see each prize move one reel to the left. The way this prize is awarded to you is if the leprechaun icon lands on a reel. The prize that appeared above the reel on that spin will then be awarded to you.
You'll see that some prizes above the reels are titled Super Spins. The Super Spins will also have 1x reels, 2x reels, 3x reels or 4x reels. If the leprechaun lands on the same reel as one of these, then you are awarded free spins. However, depending on the number attached to the Super Spins logo, you'll be playing on anything from 1 to 4 grids. That's right, you might have four grids spinning reels all at the same time.
It's important to note that the horizontal reels are also active during free spins, so you might find yourself in a situation where prizes are being collected in a frenzy across four active grids. That would be something that would surely see cash flowing like crazy.
While we obviously haven't been too shy about taking the iGaming studio to task over its theme selection, we will admit to the scintillating cash winning possibilities this game opens up. The collect function through the horizontal prize reel makes Rainbow Gold really fun to play, and if you manage to collect that Super Spins x4 Reels, things could get very profitable, indeed.
