The latest Rainbow Riches game maintains the Irish luck theme of the franchise. Rainbows, pots of gold and lucky horse shoes are just a few of the symbols you will find on the reels. In the background, green rolling hills and a meadow of lush green grass recreate the Ireland-like setting. This is one of the only RR games that features an animated background; two trees flank the game reels and wave silently in the background. This makes Drops of Gold one of the most immersive games in the franchise.
The symbols in the game are divided into the high paying picture symbols and the low paying card suits. The highest paying symbol in the slot is the Rainbow Riches logo symbol. A five of a kind match with this symbol awards a 250x total stake win. The second highest paying symbol is the mushroom awarding 200x total stake.
In the big bet game, the symbol values multiply by 4x their original value. The Rainbow Riches logo for example will award a 1000x total stake win during the big bet bonus feature. Additional, symbols to note include the gold and silver pots and the bonus symbol.

Bonus Features: Drops of Gold
The most instantly recognisable feature is the odd reel shape, which sees the addition of a further set of reels just above the main game area. In this rainbow coloured reels, silver and gold pots rest comfortably seemingly doing nothing. The key to releasing the pots lies in the 5th reel and the Drops of Gold symbol; if the symbol lands on the 5th reel then all of the pots will release and overlay the reels.
There are two pots to watch out for: the silver pots, which act as wild symbols and will substitute for every other game symbol (minus the scatter). Then there are the gold pots, which will substitute for every symbol in the game - including the scatter symbol. The silver pot has the additional feature of upgrading to a gold pot if the pot overlays a bonus symbol.
Bonus Features: Free Spins
Trigger this by landing at least three of the pot of gold bonus symbols anywhere in view and you’ll get eight free spins plus four more for any extra ones in view. It’s possible to trigger more spins from within this round in the same manner.
Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold is a medium variance slot and boasts a maximum 500x payout on each spin. However, the RTP does increase from 94.00% up to 97.75% as you select the more expensive Big Bet options. There is a maximum single game win of 250,000 coins up for grabs.
