Rainbow Jackpots Slot Review, RTP & Free Play Demo Online
Somewhere over the rainbow, apparently, there awaits a ginger-haired leprechaun guarding a pot of gold. Such is the slot world’s view of Ireland, a perpetually green or smiling mythical little men and their fortunes and of lucky gamblers.
The Lucky Irish theme remains popular. We’ll get this out of the way at the start of our review so you can bear it in mind: it’s not an aesthetic that appeals to us. It feels dated and too in your face for modern games, but it undoubtedly has its fans, and “lucky Irish” themed games continue to shoot to the top of the charts – particularly if they have big prizes attached as they so often do and as Rainbow Jackpots slot offers.
Irish themed games are generally classic in design and feel and hark back to classic slots. On first look, Rainbow Jackpot slot seems very much in that typical mould, but should you take your chances with this Green Monster?
Let’s have a look in this review.
The Developers of Rainbow Jackpots Slot
Red Tiger have been in the news lately: although the company was only founded in 2013, it had made enough of noise in the market to be snapped up by NetEnt, the Swedish slots and casino giant, in a deal worth nearly £200million.
The company is big, but not enormous, and as of this writing, a high-quality industry audit site lists around 120 titles under the brand.
There are some big hits though, including the very popular Pirates’ Plenty series, and Dragon’s Luck.
Red Tiger says it is an innovative developer, and the first fruits of its deal with NetEnt are likely to be that its titles appear on even more sites.
You shouldn’t have any trouble finding Rainbow Jackpots, and you should have no qualms about playing games from this highly respected and fully licensed developer.
The Facts and Figures about Rainbow Jackpots Slot - RTP
The current average theoretical return to a player for slots is usually around 96 – 97%, so the figure for Rainbow Jackpots RTP's of 95.24% is slightly lower. This helps to pay for the “high” volatility and the possibility of winning – via a load of bonus features – some very big single prizes.
(Volatility or variance rates the frequency of wins against their size: high variance games are likely to pay out bigger prizes, but to do so slightly less often.)
That top prize of 400,000 coins from betting of between 20p and £500 is very tempting. Always be sure to check prize amounts and pay-out limits on the site you’re actually using.
The layout – as you would expect from a game in this genre – is the classic 5-by-3 grid, with a very typical 20 pay-lines.
Simple looking, and simple in operation, this is how you play Rainbow Jackpots slot.
First, set your bet with the (green-on-green of course) bet total controls at the bottom left of the screen. Your only options here are for the total stake.
Then hit the spin button at the right of the screen. The auto-play function is to the right of the bet control and you can read the paytable by clicking or tapping to the left of the spin control.
Other game controls can be found in the game frame.
How to play
Here’s what you see when you clock on “Pays”:
The bottom of the table is filled with the card symbols:
10s pay from between double stake and 20-times stake for a set of three to five. Jacks pay 2-times to 30-times, and queens are worth 4-times to 4-times stake. Kings pay between 4 and 50-times stake. And aces are worth from 8 to 80-times stake.
High payers are themed Irish symbols:
A leprechaun’s top hat (they’re very formal, apparently) pays out 20 to 160-times stake. A lucky golden horseshoe is worth from 40 to 320-times stake. And a golden shamrock will pay you between 60 and 480-times your stake.
There is a golden wild symbol that pays 100-times stake for 3, 300-times for 4, and 800-times stake for five.
Rainbow Jackpots Slot Bonuses
There’s a good selection of bonus games beyond the wilds.
The Lucky Leprechaun Features is a symbol swap that drops in winning high-value symbols.
A mega symbol swap chucks in giant symbols.
The Beer Bonus offers a prize of up to 1,000-times your stake on a prize pick game.
The main feature is a free spins round, which can deliver up to 100 free spins. The feature is triggered by the pot of gold and can retrigger up to 100. That’s where your big wins are going to come from.
This game is a solid addition to the slots world, but it’s unlikely to cause a revolution. We came out with it upfront, but we’ll admit it again, Irish-themed games, for a number of reasons, aren’t our favourite.
If they are something that you like then Rainbow Jackpots delivers everything that we’ve come to expect from this genre: potentially big prizes, bright, cheerful colours, simple gameplay, and a very good classic slots experience.
The pay-table has some big prizes in the base game, and if you hit the free spins round you could be on the way to a winning streak. Loading the top end of the pay scale makes high variance games more suited to those with a bit of patience, but there’s enough scope in the betting range to check this game out for small stakes before you really start to risk it.
The top prize here is potentially life-changing, and players will probably factor that in when they look at the slightly below par RTP.
There’s a lot to like about Rainbow Jackpots slot and we’re happy to give it a Slainte and wish you good luck with your spin.
