With five reels, three rows and 20 fixed paylines, Rainbow Jackpots has an Irish theme, and the slot is developed by Red Tiger Gaming. The backdrop shows the famously green countryside of the Emerald Isle, while the reels spin in a leafy valley against an archway decorated and carved in a Celtic style.
Alongside these graphics, the soundtrack is an Irish jig. With many different betting options, Rainbow Jackpots suits a wide range of players, from those who enjoy a modest flutter to middle rollers and those who want to bet hundreds on every spin.
How to play
How to Play Rainbow Jackpots
Because the Paylines are fixed, you have a maximum number of ways to win per spin.
Symbols, perhaps predictably, include four-leaf clovers, Guinness pints and golden horseshoes. There’s also a golden pot brimming with gold coins. The higher-value icons are the golden clover, the green leprechaun’s hat and the golden horseshoe. The lower-value symbols are 10, J, Q, K and A.
Occasionally, a leprechaun will stroll along the bottom of the screen and call out a few Irish-style catchphrases, such as ‘Fair play to you there!’ or ‘The luck of the Irish!’
The game logo offers the richest pickings, at 800x wager for five consecutive symbols on the reels.
In Rainbow Jackpots, the Wild symbol is the gold coin. It replaces all others (apart from the free spins symbols) to help create winning combos.
Launch this feature when you land a minimum of three of the gold pots of coins symbols. It gives you the opportunity to bag up to 100 free spins. You’ll be prompted to choose one of the three pots of gold to decide how many free spins you are in line for.
During this round, the Lucky Leprechaun feature can also pop up. (See below.)
Beer mug bonus
Land three of the beer glass symbols anywhere on the reels to activate this one. You then have to choose a lucky beer glass to bag a cash prize.
Lucky Leprechaun feature
The lucky leprechaun can intervene at any time during the free spins round or the base game. It will grant you one of the following:
- Free spins – This may be triggered, as discussed above
- Beer bonus – Again, this is mentioned above
- Symbol swap – This is quite an exciting one, which adds matching symbols to the reels, and it triggers randomly when a puff of smoke containing a mystery symbol drifts up from the leprechaun’s pipe.
- Mega symbol swap – As above, but with large symbols added to the reels
A progressive jackpot
This is definitely one of the best things about Rainbow Jackpots and is launched via the base game when you land three of the relevant jackpot symbols. It gives you either the Mega or Mini prizes displayed on the left of the reels.
At the same time, the game also has a daily jackpot, which must payout by the time displayed.
Return to Player (RTP)
There’s not a whole lot we can say about this, to be honest. It’s fairly close to the industry standard at 96.24%.
We know there are a fair few slots out there already with an Irish theme. But Rainbow Jackpots is cheerful, colourful and cute, and offers a good number of features as well as that progressive jackpot. There are some decent payouts, so it’s easy to see this slot’s appeal. It’s also gently stereotyped rather than hackneyed.
Give it a whirl – and hopefully enjoy a stroke of the old luck of the Irish!
