Rainbow Gold Overview
If you are playing online slots for some time now, you might remember a game from NetEnt called Egg-O-Matic. That game used a feature where special symbols are above the reels which are activated when a special symbol appeared. Still a great game by the way.
Now Pragmatic Play has released a new game that uses this type of mechanism.
The game uses an Irish theme. I think an Irish theme is fine, but it would have been more interesting to see a more unique and less overused theme.
Rainbow Gold uses 5 reels, which are 3 symbols high and comes with 20 lines. The game features wild symbols on all reels and also a special leprechaun that appears on all reels.
A with a lot of Pragmatic Play games, this one comes with a maximum payout of 5.000 times your bet.
Rainbow Gold Features
Top Tracker Prize Collection
Above the reels is a row of treasure chests showing several bonuses. When a leprechaun lands on a reel the treasure chest is collected. These treasure chests can have the following bonuses.
- Direct Money – Between x1 and x100 times your bet
- All in view – Collect all treasure chests above all reels
- Super spins – Starts the free spins bonus with 1, 2, 3 or 4 reel sets
The Super Spins start when you collect a Super Spins during the normals spins.
You are awarded 8 free spins.
These free spins are played on 1, 2, 3 or 4 separate reel sets, depending on what you triggered.
During free spins the following treasure chest bonuses can appear above the reels, still collected by a leprechaun symbol landing on the reel.
- Direct Money – Between x2 and x500 times your bet
- All in view – Collect all treasure chests above the reels on the reel set the leprechaun appeared
- Super All in view – Collect all treasure chests above all reels on all reel sets
- Additional free spins – 2, 3 or 5 extra free spins
- Rainbow Boost – Will unlock an extra reel set, if you are not yet playing on the maximum of 4 reel sets
The mechanism where you collect a bonus above the reel when a certain symbol lands was pretty unique when Egg-O-Matic came out. These days we’ve seen it a lot before.
And Pragmatic Play also decided to use a very generic theme.
But to be honest, I do enjoy the game. I think this mechanism is fun and during free spins you can get even better bonuses.
Although the game is not original and uses a very overused Irish theme, it is enjoyable. And I think a lot of players will agree.
