Rainbow Riches Megaways slot is a new one from Barcrest (SG Gaming) and the latest addition to the very popular Rainbow Riches series. This time though, as is clear from the title, you have megaways in play offering lots of ways to win, and you also get a chance to buy the main bonus here which may appeal to some. In terms of the design, it’s in keeping with the Rainbow Riches theme which is bright and cheery and generally well-liked. To play the base game, you just need to spin the reels to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10 (lowest value)
- Blue Gem
- Green Gem
- Purple Gem
- Orange Gem
- Diamond (highest value)
There’s a wild symbol as well in Rainbow Riches Megaways slot that substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter symbol.

Rainbow Riches Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Cascading Symbols. Like so many megaways slots, this one features cascading symbols which you probably understand by now already, but if not here’s a quick description of how they work. Whenever you get a win on the screen, the symbols that form the win will disappear. New ones will then fall down from above during the same spin, and if they form a new win the same will happen again. This only stops once there are no more wins.
Super Gem Bonus. The super gem symbol can appear anywhere on the top reel to trigger this bonus. All gem symbols on the screen, including itself, will turn into the same randomly selected symbol, working essentially like a mystery symbol but possibly much better.
Free Spins Bonus. The main attraction of the slot, this is triggered with 4 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You’ll be given 12 free spins with 4 scatter symbols, and any additional symbols in view will give you another 5 free spins. Like many other slots like this, you’ll get an unlimited multiplier that starts at 1x and increases in increments of 1 for every win, including cascading wins. Rack up a few early wins and payouts towards the end of the bonus could be big. Furthermore, you can win additional free spins by landing +1, +2 or +3 symbols on the top reels. These are then removed to create a cascade effect.
Buy Pass. This slot allows you to buy the bonus at a cost of 100x your stake. If you want to reduce the cost of the bonus, you can take a chance after selecting it and alter the amount of savings you want to make, decreasing the odds of it happening in the process, of course.
Bonus Bank. You’ll notice an unusual ‘bank’ button on the side of the screen which you can click on to change. Bank Wins Off will add all wins to the balance, Bank All Wins adds all wins to the bonus bank, while Bank Small Wins adds wins of stake 3x or less to the bonus bank. The bonus bank is used to reduce the cost of the free spins bonus.
While Rainbow Riches Megaways slot from Barcrest may seem fairly complicated, it’s actually not too dissimilar to many other megaways slots out there. It has cascading symbols which are used in the free spins bonus to increase your multiplier and that’s the main feature of the slots. However, it does have an option to buy the bonus, albeit at quite a high cost, and the option to add some, all or none of your winnings to a pot that goes towards your bonus, not making it cheaper though. The only real difference in this slot from many others is the super gem bonus which I have to admit can be very useful and it does give an incentive to play this slot over other similar ones out there. Personally, I would have liked to have seen the main bonus play a bit differently, however this slot is still a good option for those who like that kind of thing or want to buy the bonus. You can see some of their other slots here too.
