Set within rolling green hills which is overlooked by a colourful rainbow, this pokie immediately draws you in with its bright, inviting set-up. The bottom of the reels are covered with gold coins which seemingly have flown from the pot of gold sitting on the grass, whilst the Fortune Favours part of the pokie title is also gleaming in gold.
Should you wait before spinning the reels, you will find that an impatient leprechaun pops in from the side of the screen to check his watch before looking at you to encourage you to play. It’s just one of many fun additions to this Irish-themed pokie.
The first thing you need to do is decide just how much you are going to bet. There are 10 paylines, and with a minimum of 0.10 per line and a maximum of 50.00, it means that you can play a total of between 0.10 and 500.00 per spin. Your betting options are all situated next to the spin button, so choosing whether to play it safe or be a high roller is completely up to you.
At the other side of the spin button is the information tab, which opens up everything you need to know about the pokie. This includes details of the symbols found on the reel, the bonus features and the paytables to let you know what you will need to land to be in with a chance of big money. To the left of the information button is the Big Bet option, but more about that later.
On the reels you will find the playing card symbols 10 - A, which act as the lowest-paying symbols on the reels. These pay as little as x5 when you find three 10 - Q symbols, or as high as x100 for five K and A symbols. The toadstool and harp symbols pay up to x150 for five matching symbols, whilst the rainbow gives a maximum payout of x200.
The gold and red Rainbow Riches logo is the highest-paying standard symbol with a massive x2500 to be won if you land five of them.
The Magic Fairy symbol acts as a wild which can transform into a random symbol. You only need to land one of these for the transformation to take place, although find more and you will have a higher chance of winning a bigger payout. Back to the Big Bet option, which is shown next to the spin button. Press this and you will be given five options to place larger bets on a four separate sets of reels.
If you bet £10, the Magic Fairy will be active on all reels, whilst a bet of £20 allows the magic fairy to transfer to the next reel set when she appears. For bets of £30 and over, the Wild comes into play. This large gold coin is complete with the word Wild stamped over the top in red, and so is not hard to miss. A bet of £30 means that the wild becomes active alongside the fairy.
The latter will once again transfer to the next reel set. A £40 bet allows both the Magic Fairy and the Wild to transfer, whilst the maximum £50 bet also additionally removes the 10, J and Q symbols to help create bigger winning combinations. The Big Bet feature, something which is seen in several of the game-maker’s other pokies, is a great add-on.
The fact that you don’t have to spin the reels with the hope of this feature appearing makes it even more appealing. Instead, you can decide to use the Big Bet option rather than clicking for a standard spin.
This is certainly an inviting free pokies game which has betting options for both those who like to place small bets and those who like to bet big. It’s easy to get started and can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet, depending on your preferred device.
Whilst Barcrest's Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours doesn’t have any free spins bonuses, the addition of the Big Bet option more than makes up for it and keeps the pokie fun and refreshing to play. It may be part of the Rainbow Riches family, but it stands out for all the right reasons.
