Located in the heart of an Irish countryside, this game focuses on all things lucky! The Rainbow Riches Pick And Mix slot stands out for its massive variety of bonus mechanics, of which there are six in total. As for the visuals, this layout is relatively minimal. However, the symbols and animations are of the highest quality. There are also a variety of different sound effects that will play on each spin.
This slot was created by Barcrest, a company that tends to focus on slot machines with a retro appearance. In the past, they have released top titles such as Beetlejuice Megaways, Crown Gems, and Kings Honor. It's also worth mentioning that this title is part of the Rainbow Riches series, following games such as Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic and Rainbow Riches Rainbow Frenzy.
Interestingly, the standard 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols are the main icons in Rainbow Riches Pick And Mix, with the only premium being the 'Rainbow Riches' logo. Landing five of these symbols across a payline can award players 200x, 200x, 200x, 400x, 400x, or 500x their stake size, respectively. Keep in mind that will all symbols, the potential winnings are based on the stake per line, not the total bet.
There is also a huge variety of special symbols in this slot, with the first being a wild, shown as a golden coin. In total, there are five different scatter icons in Rainbow Riches Pick And Mix, too, including a mushroom, a pot of gold, a leprechaun, a smiling leprechaun, and the words 'Free Spins'. Each of these symbols has its own associated bonus mode!
The very first bonus feature in Rainbow Riches Pick And Mix is introduced as soon as the game loads. Players will be shown five different symbols, all of which are linked to their own bonus mode. Three of these symbols can be picked to ensure that they appear more often during the base game. It's also worth mentioning that players can change their selection at any time by pressing the 'Reset Bonus' button, which is located in the top right.
If three or more leprechaun symbols appear, the 'Road To Riches' bonus will be activated. Players will be taken to a path loaded with different multipliers, before spinning a wheel. The outcome of this spin will determine how many spaces the player will move. Naturally, the potential winnings increase as more steps are taken.
This wheel will be spun until players land on a 'collect' segment, at which point the multiplier associated with their current position will be applied to the stake size and awarded. Should players make it to the end of the path, they will be awarded 500x the bet, before being taken back to the base game. The 500x can also be awarded if five leprechauns appear simultaneously.
Next up is the 'Pots Of Gold' mode, which is perhaps the most simplistic bonus in the game. Landing three or more pots of gold will trigger this round, causing them to fly across the screen. Each pot will have a multiplier associated with them, with one being selected at random. This multiplier will then be applied to the stake size and awarded to the player.
Landing three or more 'Free Spins' scatter icons will trigger the third bonus mode. Players will be awarded with 10, 20, or 30 free spins, depending on whether 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols land during the base game. In this mode, the 'Free Spins' symbol acts as a fully stacked wild, replacing any standard or premium icons
Should three or four toadstool icons appear, players will be taken to a farm, where they can randomly pick between 24 different mushrooms. At the start of the round, three picks will be awarded, with each mushroom revealing a multiplier or a fairy. Multipliers will be collected and applied to the stake size at the end of the round, while the fairy symbol will collect three other mushrooms at random.
The last bonus mode is known as 'Cash Crop' and can be triggered if 3 or 4 smiling leprechauns appear at the same time. During this round, 50 different coins can spin to reveal multipliers or potential winnings. This continues until a collect coin is shown, at which point any potential winnings will be awarded, and players will be taken back to the base game.
For players that like to hunt for a variety of different bonus modes, Rainbow Riches Pick And Mix could be a slot to consider. The visual appearance of this slot is rather minimal; however, a lot of work has clearly gone into the symbols and animations!
