The Legend of Rainbow Riches
Rainbow Riches is probably the most popular online slots game ever played (especially in the UK) but just like most other fantastic games, Rainbow Riches’ beginning was pretty humble.
Developed by Barcrest games, Rainbow Riches has a ‘luck of the Irish’ theme with the whole game’s environment taking on rainbows, leprechauns and pots of gold and silver coins.
In the Beginning
It was back in 2008 that the first Rainbow Riches slot machine was launched with two screens one for the rells and another one above for the feature. The game was called the Road to Riches and rewards were gained via a ‘wheel of fortune.’
Road to Riches was massively successful and could be found in most pubs and gaming shops. Fast paced and great looks kept its popularity high besides having a good reward system together with a higher return rate to players – Barcrest had hit the jackpot with this slot machine.
What Rainbow Riches Looks LIke Today

FruityKing which will take you right to it. Because this slot game started as a land based machine it’s a little different from a lot of other online slot games as the creators have kept all the best features of the land based game and then added some more to make it a brilliant game to play.
You can try the game out for free before either using some of your own money or using some of the bonus money that Fruity King offers its players. The graphics and sound are still reminiscent of the golden age of Vegas and the game still retains that traditional look and feel which still has a great attraction for many players.

Rainbow Riches has a purple background and is now the flagship game for Barcrest. The soundtrack is a harp which is very upbeat and fun to listen to. The Rainbow symbols include the Rainbow Riches logo, a gold coin, Leprechaun, Wishing Well and Pots of Gold.
There are three bonus features to trigger with the Road to Riches feature activated by landing 3 or more leprechaun bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. Once triggered you can then spin the wheel which will decide how many steps up the cash path you take. You will carry on spinning until the wheel lasts on a ‘collect’ point or if you are lucky enough to reach the top of the cash path. The most you can win is 500x your stake.
The Wishing Well feature is activated by landing 3 or more Wishing Well symbols anywhere on the reels. Choose one of the three wishing wells which will reveal the multiplier value of your stake money. Again you can win up to 500x your stake money.
The last bonus feature is the Pots of Gold bonus. To trigger this feature you need to land three pots of gold symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. Once you have activated this feature you will see gold, silver and bronze pots spinning about on your screen – an arrow will point to one of them when they stop spinning and each pot has a multiplier value – again the most you can win is 500x your stake.
