Does the world really need yet another Rainbow Riches slot? SG Digital says yes. The enduring popularity of this slot franchise hints they definitely have an argument for it. The original Rainbow Riches slot and its various sequels are still some of the most played Irish-themed slots online.
The Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic slot differs from its predecessors in that it only has 10 paylines. However it does include a Super Dial feature that sees you only require two Scatters to land the bonus game. Though it costs double your stake to play it. Curiously enough the game play is accompanied by what sounds like Spanish guitar music. Perhaps the kind of tunes the famous leprechaun likes to let his hair down to.

How to Play
Any gamer who is familiar with the Rainbow Riches slot franchise will recognise the big spin button underneath the reelcase. Simply press this to send the five reels spinning once you have selected your bet level by using the bet toggle to the right of the reels. When you play slots that use paylines rather than Ways to Win, you have to match the game symbols from left to right across the game’s payline patterns. In the case of Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic there are 10 paylines, plus the option to play the Super Dial feature which increases your chance of triggering the Free Spins bonus round by only requiring two Scatters instead of three.
As with all of the other Rainbow Riches games the Celtic styled 10s through Aces make up this slot’s lower paying symbols, awarding x5-x6 your stake for landing five on a payline. A Leprechaun Hat, Horseshoe and Harp take positions as mid range payers, awarding x10 – x15 your stake for a maximum of five on a payline. SG Digital has used similar symbols to great effect in other Irish slots releases, with the studio’s Rainbow Cash Pots slot being a perfect example, but there is no mistaking the Rainbow Riches game logo as the game’s Wild and top paying game symbol. It not only substitutes for all other game symbols except Scatters but also awards x50 your stake for landing five on a payline, while a bright Rainbow and bulging Toadstool follow it up with x25 and x20 payouts respectively. The Leprechaun is the game’s Scatter, and requires three or more to trigger the game’s Free Spins feature unless you play the Super Dial.
SG Digital has tinkered with the original Rainbow Riches bonus game format by offering a single dedicated bonus game that awards between 10-20 free spins, the chances of triggering which you can boost by activating the Super Dial feature.
