Slingo Rainbow Riches comes with an Irish theme. As such, the background is pretty much what you would expect from an Irish-themed video slot. The green fields expand as far as the eye can see and seep into the crystal-clear sky. The country road won’t take you home, but it leads to the end of a rainbow, and we all know what lies at the end of it. If you ever walk astray, the friendly leprechaun is there to make sure you find the pot of gold.
Slingo Rainbow Riches RTP
The game reviews state that, if you play perfectly, the RTP of the game is 95.6%. However, it is hard for me to imagine someone making perfect decisions over and over again based on a ton of possibilities that may come with every new spin. Even the 95.6% is slightly underwhelming, not to mention having that number significantly decreased due to, let’s say, human error. I believe Barcrest could have done a better job.
Slingo Rainbow Riches Gameplay
The gameplay might seem confusing at first glance but don’t worry, it’s not all that bad. The goal of the game is to collect matching symbols and add them to the reels to complete winning paylines. It’s relatively similar to bingo, except it includes a few twists. The playing field consists of a 5X5 grid; however, only one additional reel at the bottom will spin. The minimum amount you can wager starts at 0.50 and goes up to 200.00 credits per spin.
Slingo Rainbow Riches Symbols and Bonus Features
The symbols include various numbers that you will use and place across the playing grid. Among the special symbols, you can find a Joker that allows you to mark any number in the row where the Joker landed. A Super Joker does the same thing, but it will enable you to mark any number on the grid. Besides them, you can find the Free Spins symbol that will award one Free Spin and Devil symbols that will block the other symbols.
The base game finishes after the lapse of 10 spins plus every Free Spin that you’ve earned meanwhile. Once it does, you will most likely earn various features. You can choose and try to progress further or you can collect the feature. Even though features are different in appearance, they offer the same reward, and that’s the win multiplier.
I enjoyed learning about Slingo Rainbow Riches, but the excitement was short lived. Once you familiarize yourself with the slot, the gameplay becomes somewhat tedious and, of course, there’s always the low RTP. Perhaps you might find it more appealing, but Slingo Rainbow Riches is not my cup of tea.
