There’s no shortage of slots on today’s market inspired by Irish folklore, but Yggdrasil Gaming’s great-looking, great-sounding Rainbow Ryan Slot offers something a little bit different.
It’s played over four rows plus six reels and offers a whopping 4,096 ways of winning. The focus in this summer 2017 release is a banjo-playing leprechaun who provides the rock-based backing music.
Reels turn against a stage background with giant speakers either side as Ryan smiles and strums away in the bottom left-hand corner, performing solo riffs to create a constant soundtrack of rock music.
How to play
Form winning combos with symbols on neighbouring reels, kicking off from those furthest left. You can play this game from 50p a spin, all the way up to a high-rolling £250 a pop.
The lower-paying values consist of the four standard playing-card suits, while the more lucrative icons are all relevant to the theme and include a mic, a pair of boots, a hat filled with gold and a pint. Of these, the gold-filled hat is the most lucrative, paying 5x stake for five in a row.
Rainbow Ryan Slot special features
The large gold Wild as ever substitutes for all other symbols to help create winning combos, the exception being the free spins Scatter. In this game that’s depicted as an amplifier.
This is a cracking little perk. Essentially, Ryan himself can use his electric guitar to synch between two and six reels at random, lining up at least two of them so they’re adjacent.
The reels illuminate as rainbows in neon, with guaranteed identical icons enhancing your chances of landing winning combinations.
It triggers when spotlights on the stage begin shooting rainbows.
Activate this round when you land a minimum of a trio of the amps anywhere on the reels. You’ll be in line for rewards as follows:
- Three amps – seven free whirls
- Four amps – 10 free whirls
- Five amps – 20 free whirls
The Rainbow Ryan Slot feature remains active while you’re playing these goes, and the synced reels go up in number as the round wears on – never down.
One downside, however, is that you can’t trigger any further freebies while this feature is ongoing,
Although there’s no progressive prize, the top jackpot (when playing with maximum stake) is €512,922. Potential best win on every free or base game spin is 2,000x stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player in this game is a decidedly generous 96.3%. Expect medium-to-high volatility here, with a hit rate that’s arguably slightly on the low side at 20.4%. So some patience may be needed when playing Rainbow Ryan, not least during free spins mode.
Rainbow Ryan Slot is the sort of top-notch offering players have come to expect from this operator, and there’s plenty to enjoy, including some first-class visuals and graphics that are clean and bold.
So you should find enough to keep you feeling thoroughly entertained. Equally, it’s one of those games you’ll probably find yourself wanting to return to.
Give it a go and let us know how you got on. Here’s hoping you enjoy some of the luck of the Irish!
