When we fire up any game in the Rainbow Riches slots franchise we want a shot at epic wins and classic slots gameplay. Rainbow Riches Pick N Mix gives us exactly that, but with a new couple of new twists. Firstly, we can choose the bonus features we play with ourselves – of which there are now five.
Even the more recent Rainbow Riches Megaways slot only boasts one bonus round, though it does also feature 117,649 ways to win! Secondly, SG Digital now includes a Big Bet feature, giving us the option to buy-in to the bonus round…or rounds. Combine that with the classic gameplay of a Rainbow Riches slot and you have a unique introduction to one of the most famous slots families on the planet.
Pros & Cons
- Five bonus features to choose from.
- Super versions of bonus features award even higher wins.
- Stacked symbols can deliver multiple payline wins.
- Can only pick three of five bonus rounds.
- No explanation of bonus features on the load screen.
- Symbols are the same as in the original Rainbow Riches slot
How to Play
First things first, we need to choose our bonus games. SG Digital uses each feature’s Scatter symbol to depict these games without an immediate explanation of what the feature entails (other than the Free Spins Scatter, which is self explanatory). Simply select a feature and a bigger screenshot of the picture appears above it to give us a better idea of how the feature works. Fans of the original Rainbow Riches slot will no doubt recognise the Road To Riches, Pots of Gold and Free Spins feature that played a part in making the original slot so successful.
The additions to the features are the Cash Crop feature and Magic Crop feature, pick ‘em style games that deliver bet multipliers with each pick. Once you have chosen your bonus game/s and start the game simply select your bet level per line to the left of the reels – your total bet is displayed in the stake box beneath. The Bonus Bet (BB) box to the right of the reels allows you to pay for a spin to trigger the bonus game. The higher stake you pay increases your chance of triggering the feature, with five free spins the consolation prize.
The game symbols are the same as they were in the original Rainbow Riches slot. 10s through Queens make up the lower paying symbols while Kings, Aces and the Rainbow Riches game logo are the game’s higher payers. When we play online slots in a slots series like Rainbow Riches, the continuity of symbols and game play is often one of the reasons why we keep returning to play. The Leprechaun Wild substitutes for all other symbols except Scatters, which are depicted by the bonus symbols we choose at the start of the game.
The Pick n Mix of the game’s title comes as we have five bonus features to choose from. If we land five Scatters we earn x500 our bet rather than triggering the bonus feature.
