Rainbow Riches: Race Day
One of the latest games from Bally Technologies – one of many gaming software developers under the Scientific Games umbrellas – is Rainbow Riches Race Day. Powered by the Barcrest architecture, this 6-reel and four-line game uses an Irish luck and horse racing theme with jolly colours and cartoon-style graphics as a background.
The unusual reel and line format gives Rainbow Riches Race Day no fewer than 4096 potential winning combinations with three or more symbols matching on adjacent reels making a win line. The symbols used are entertaining depictions of lucky horseshoes, the Irish shamrock, harps, mushrooms and the Rainbow Riches symbol, the latter of which is the high-paying icon.
The game is compatible with iOS, Android and Microsoft operating systems and while it can be played on a hand-held, players will enjoy the colourful graphics and jaunty traditional Irish themed music to the full on a larger screen such as a desktop.
The stake can be adjusted easily with ‘+ and –‘ buttons on the simple to use layout. Rainbow Riches Race Day is considered a medium variance machine which will appeal to novice users perhaps more than the experienced player, with a maximum possible pay out of 5000 x the stake.
How to Play Rainbow Riches Race Day
The 6×4 layout makes for an unusual and interesting game that differs from many other NZ online pokies. Rainbow Riches is the main paying symbol with 3 on adjacent reels giving you 0.5 times your stake and 6 adding 15 times the stake.
Other symbols include scatter and wild icons such as a horse and a gold coin, each of which trigger features. While complex in appearance, Rainbow Riches Race Day is actually simple to play and the special features add extra appeal to this entertaining game.
Special Features of Rainbow Riches Race Day
Rainbow Riches Race Day offers three special features as follows:
- Reel Cascades will trigger when a winning combination is seen, with the original symbols replaced by others and this continuing until there is no win on screen.
- Horses feature comes into play when a horse symbol is seen as it moves the corresponding horse forward in a virtual race. The pot carried by the winning horse is added to the win total.
- The Grand Derby Free Spins scatter symbol starts a traditional free spin sequence continuing until a prize pot is won.
Rainbow Riches Race Day is a playable and fun online pokie with some interesting special features that will appeal to all players.
