Road to Riches Megaways is a cascading video slot with 6 reels, 2 to 7 rows and 324 to 117,649 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can follow the rainbow on desktop, mobile and tablet from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility and an RTP of 96%.
The visuals are virtually identical to the original Rainbow Riches Megaways slot. You still get the lush green, the blue sky, the pot with gold coins and the rainbow, all in the background of the Barcrest-typical rudimentary game window. The extra horizontal reel on top of the main game area will spin additional symbols into view. The typical Irish soundtrack provides the main audio.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 9 through to A, awarding wins of 0.8x to 1.75x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are complemented by five differently coloured gemstones – blue, green, purple, orange and diamond – at the high end. Hit six across the reels to win 1.75x to 50x your bet for a single five of kind. In line with the Irish theme, a horseshoe represents the wild symbol performing the usual substitution duties while pots of gold act as scatter. Last but not least, you will have rainbow-coloured Super Gem symbols appearing in the horizontal reel, which will trigger one of the features.
Road to Riches Megaways Slot Features
The Super Gem feature triggers in the base game and free spins when a rainbow-coloured mystery symbol lands in the horizontal reel. All gems, irrespective of colour, will change into a common gem symbol. Having sufficient in view that connect could yield substantial wins.
Hit four scatters anywhere on the main reels in one spin sequence to trigger 12 free spins. Any further landing on the triggering spin will award +5 free spins. During the feature, you can have scatters symbols landing on the horizontal reels which will be marked with +1, +2 or +3, awarding the respective extra number of free spins, no limits.
The main attraction though in the free spins is the unlimited multiplier. It will increase by x1 after every winning reaction. Plus, the Super Gem symbol can appear on the horizontal during the free spins, providing more chances for wins with high-value symbols.
Too impatient to wait for an organic trigger? Then use the Buy Pass to get instant access to the free spins round. It will cost you a one-time bet of 100x your standard stake. If that is too much, then activate the “Take A Chance” feature, which will allow you one spin on a wheel which is divided into a green and a red part. Staking from 25x to 75x your bet will gradually increase the green part and your chance to land on it.
Plus, you can reduce the cost of buying the feature by activating the Bonus Bank, which will present you with two options to lower the standard Buy Pass amount. Please note though that wins added to the Bonus Bank will not be credited to your playing balance.
- Bank Wins Off – wins are not collected and Buy Pass cost is not reduced
- Bank All Wins – all wins are added to the Bonus Bank reducing the cost for the Buy Pass
- Bank Small Wins – only wins of 3x your bet or less are added to the Bonus Bank to reduce the cost for the Buy Pass
Well, good to see Barcrest making the effort to adapt the immensely popular Rainbow Riches franchise for other markets as it allows those players to spin the reels on this entertaining slot. Finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow could be worth up to 250,000 credits.
