More about the Software Provider

Since 2011, Williams, Barcrest, Shuffle Master and Bally Technologies have been part of SG Interactive, and if you're au-fait with the original Rainbow Riches slot, you'll know that it was the brainchild of Barcrest. Barcrest have created all manner of slots over the years, including Crown Gems Hi Roller, Monty's Millions, Cashino, Thai Flower, and Merry Money.
Appearance and Sound Effects
Every time you come to play the Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n' Mix slots game on your desktop or mobile, you're prompted to choose between one and three of the five available bonus features. Our tip is to pick just one bonus as you'll have greater chances of winning it more often. And, if you change your mind mid-game, you can reset your choices and pick a different set of bonus features at any point.
Once the main game screen launches, you find yourself in the open countryside where a glittering golden path leads through the rolling hills towards clear blue skies and mountains in the distance. Your chosen bonuses are displayed at the bottom of the screen, the stake/line settings are on the left, and the "Reset Bonus", Spin button, and Big Bet options are on the right-hand side.
There are a total of twelve paytable symbols, including five playing card symbols (A, K, Q, J, and 10), the Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n' Mix logo, a gold coin, and five bonus symbols (the Toadstool, the Pot of Gold, "Free Spins", the Leprechaun's Face, and the Leprechaun Standing in Front of a Rainbow). N.B., only the bonus symbols that you've chosen as your preferred bonuses will be displayed.
Bonuses and Special Features
The Gold Coin is the wild symbol, and it can help you win by replacing all symbols apart from the five bonus symbols. If five matching bonus symbols land scattered on the reels, you receive a cash reward of five hundred times your bet instead of triggering the bonus.
If you choose to use the Big Bet Feature, you get instant access to between one and three wheels depending on the number of active bonuses. Each wheel contains a green slice and a rainbow slice. If it lands on a green slice, you receive five Mega Spins which are played at three times the minimum stake per line. If it lands on a rainbow slice, you get to play the respective bonus game.
If you choose not to use Big Bet, you'll need three or four matching bonus symbols to land anywhere on the reels (or, in the case of the Free Spins Bonus, up to five).
The five bonus features that you can trigger while playing the Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n' Mix slots game operate as follows:
Free Spins Bonus – gives you ten, twenty or thirty free games when triggered by three, four or five bonus symbols respectively. During the feature, the "Free Spins" symbol is used as an extra wild, and also appears stacked on the first reel to make it easier to win extra free games;
Pots of Gold Bonus – awards you a randomly chosen pot of gold containing a stake multiplier of between 70x and 500x;
Road to Riches Bonus – lets you move along the trail using the Spin button to collect win multipliers or the ultimate prize of 500x your bet. However, if you land on a "Collect" sign, the bonus ends;
Magic Toadstool Bonus – pick three of the twenty-four toadstools on your screen to reveal multipliers or fairies. The fairies award prizes from three extra mushrooms;
Cash Crop Bonus – spin the coins on your screen to move through the three levels while winning multipliers of between 1x and 10x.
Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n' Mix uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and thirty fixed paylines. It also has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of between 94.00% and 98.00% which is influenced by the Big Bet Feature, and it lets you create winning combinations from left to right starting from the leftmost reel.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
Like any good Pick ‘n' Mix sweet counter, the Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n' Mix online slot offers you an abundance of tasty features ranging from Cash Crop in which you can collect instant cash prizes and multipliers, and Free Spins to Road to Riches and Magic Toadstool. Another delicious ingredient is the Big Bet Feature which allows you to claim Mega Spins instead of bonus features, and also raises the game's RTP to as much as 98%!
