You may feel like you know exactly what to expect from the Rainbow Riches series and in many regards, you would be absolutely right. However, Rainbow Riches – Leapin’ Leprechauns is a different animal to anything else in the range – and in slots gaming in general to be honest! It is almost a mobile platform game with a casino twist rather than being a standard slot and there are not even any reels in use on the game at all. Instead, the iconic leprechaun continues to be the star of the show here on this one but you will be hoping that his legs are in good working order rather than him paying out for symbol combinations!
What to Expect
In something that reminds us of the Big Bet feature on other Barcrest mobile games, players will kick things off on Rainbow Riches – Leapin’ Leprechauns by selecting a stake and then buying five jumps – and yes, we do mean jumps and not spins! Using either auto play or manual taps, you will then be tasked with heading up onto higher platforms, where a new obstacle, bonus or prize will await.
There are various items that can help you along in your pursuit of prizes on this game, starting with the heart. This icon lasts for two jumps and will ensure that any obstacles are not even a minor annoyance if you encounter them. The horseshoe is just like the heart, but lasts for three jumps and the magic hat can be used manually to squash a single obstacle. Finally, the balloon power up will rise into the air, presumably to a platform that is currently out of view, and find a cash prize before multiplying it by two, three or five times.
The prize symbols include rainbows, clovers, coins and pots of gold, and they are all responsible for paying out what is effectively a multiplier on your stake. Up to a hundred times the stake can be won from any one symbol, so the wins can certainly come thick and fast. All that is getting in your way is the aforementioned obstacles, and they include cracked mirrors, 13, snakes and black cats. If you reach one of these without a power up to negate them, the current round is over and it is back to the standard game.
When you have successfully navigated five platforms, you are given the option of continuing as normal, collecting your prize and thus eliminating the obstacle risk or gambling what you have won so far. Also, every five successful jumps that you make will award a small bonus worth half your total bet.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
This may be Rainbow Riches, but it is not Rainbow Riches as we know it. If you are purely into slots then it is not even worth loading this game up in the first place. However, if the spinning reels are hurting your eyes and you would like to try something different with a familiar brand, Rainbow Riches – Leapin’ Leprechauns can definitely deliver in style. On top of that, this game can be found on the same apps as all your other Rainbow Riches favourites, so there is no harm in giving it a few goes for small stakes!
