Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold : Arcade-Style Feature Drops Wild Symbols into Reels
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold online slot presents the Barcrest/SG Interactive Rainbow Riches saga with a unique arcade style feature. A stream of Silver and Gold Pots flow into a Drop Zone, which may later cascade into the standard or bonus grid. If the Drops of Gold Feature activates, multiple pots drop as Wild Symbols into reels.
The Standard base game grid contains 50 paylines; but may increase to 100 if the Drops of Gold feature activates during a Free-Spins Round. The number of paylines can still grow to 300, if the game runs via Big Bet 50.00 Spins.
Barcrest's proprietary Big Bet (B.B.) Game Mode can in fact, add extra win-boosting features. Moreover, the reel elements of a B.B. grid have higher Paytable Values. The highest paying Rainbow Riches Logo for one, has a standard payout range of 25, 50 and 250 credits on 3 or more that align as winning combos. The pays increase to 100, 200 and 1,000 credits when spins launch via any Big Bet option.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold : Wild Symbols
Gold and Silver Pots streaming above the standard 4×5 grid are actually Wild Symbols. They can pose as acceptable substitutes for other elements for purposes of completing a winning payline arrangement. Gold Pots though are more potent as they can also substitute for Bonus Game Symbols that trigger the Free-Spins Bonus Feature.
Still, if Silver Pots drop into reel positions occupied by Bonus Game Symbols, the images transform into Gold Pots in order to retain the triggering effect.
However, Gold and Silver Pot Wilds can drop and take positions in related reels, only if the Drops of Gold feature is on.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold Feature
Drops of Gold Logos as standard grid elements emerge only in Reel 5. Once a Logo token comes into view, all Gold and Silver Pot Wilds currently positioned in the 4×5 Drop Zone, will flow as is, into the standard 4×5 grid. As a result, some of the symbols produced by the triggering spin will be replaced with Gold or Silver Pot Wilds. Such an occurrence therefore increases chances of hitting multiple combinations completed via Wild substitutions.
if this feature sets off during a free-spins round, the event will also activate additional paylines;
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold : Free-Spins Bonus Round
It takes three (3) Bonus Symbols to trigger a round of eight (8) Free Games. Every additional Bonus Symbol in excess of the minimum three (3), adds four (4) more Bonus Spins.
Bonus Symbols remain active during free bouts. If another set of three (3) or more occurs as outcomes of bonus spins, the round extends accordingly.
Here, a regular bonus round still runs on a grid configured with 50 paylines. The number of paying lines increases to 100 every time the Drops of Gold Feature activates. After payline wins brought on by the Drops of Gold feature have been appraised, the number of paylines resets to the original 50.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold : Big Bet Game Mode
Big Bet Games are sets of five (5) regular spins launched with a Big Bet Value: B.B. 20.00, B.B. 30.00, or B.B. 50.00. B.B. stakes come with one or more additional features; albeit depending on the B.B. Value used to launch the Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold B.B. Games.
Still, regardless of the B.B. Value at stake, spins run on a grid configured with 50 paylines. If the Drops of Gold Feature activates while in the B.B. Game Mode, the number of paylines increase to 100; except if the bonus bout activated by way of a B.B. 50 stake.
Aside from those payline increases, the following win-boosting feature/s enhance each set of Big Bet Games:
2-Tile High Bonus Symbol – All B.B. Spins (20.00, 30.00 and 50.00) produce 2-tile high Bonus Symbols. Full or partial displays of the enlarged icon in Reel 5, can set off the Drops of Gold Feature.
Elimination of K, Q, J and 10 Tokens – Launching B.B. Games with 30.00 or 50.00 B.B. Values will eliminate those symbols as potential outcomes of B.B. Spins.
300 Paylines in Bonus Round – B.B. 50.00 stakes resulting to activation of the Drops of Gold Feature during Bonus Games, will increase the number of paying lines to 300.
