The question on the lips of all slot machine players is how long Rainbow Riches can maintain its position as the UK’s number one slot machine and when something better will come.
Well despite several big releases last year, including popular entertainment themes like Iron Man and Lord Of The Rings, Rainbow Riches is holding on tight to the Crown. Yes, the reason is very simple, great game graphics along with the dazzling leprechaun theme keep it in demand.
Walk into any UK Casino and Rainbow fortune will have a prime position in the Slots section. Some Casinos even have some machines in the lobby and you can play without even entering the Club room.
The game is centered around the little Irishman and has three Bonus rounds which seem to appear more frequently than other similar machines, perhaps this is why it is so in demand. Bonus round features include a Well of Hope, Pot of gold and a path to Wealth.
Rainbow Riches, A Barcrest creation, first launched on a no-frills 10k slot in 2005. The game took the crown a few years ago and now won’t let it go. On the other hand, wildly popular traditional machines like Elvis and Cleopatra look a little tired and out of date.
However, new games are now being developed and released almost every week and 2011 is no exception. So grab your seats, it can be a long bumpy ride as manufacturers and casinos try to provide something better than a leprechaun’s little treasure trove. My personal view is that they won’t and the little fellow will still sit on the throne this time next year.
More than eight game derivatives are available to play, but by far the most popular is the Pots of Gold Version.
You can play this game online for free at most UK casinos and I definitely recommend that you try all the features before putting in any money. If you decide to play for cash, the golden rule is to set a budget first and the second golden rule is to stick to it.
