Irish and British legends have a huge impact on the fantasy literature, and thus, on the video games industry. Various magical creatures from the Celtic myths can be found in the different fantasy-themed role-playing, action, and strategy games. Mostly, those are elves, fairies, orcs, banshees, specters and so on. However, somehow, such an interesting Irish creature as leprechaun can only be seen in rare cases. Probably, Heroes of Might and Magic 4 was the only widely known videogame to include leprechauns in its characters list.
Apparently, NeoGames studios have noticed the lack of leprechauns in the modern video games and decided to release Rainbow Charms – an Irish-themed slots game, based on the ancient fairy tale that leprechaun can lead you to a pot of gold, hidden at the end of the rainbow. Apart from interesting setting, this game lets you win real money, requires no downloading and thus can be played online. And Rainbow Charms demand no registration as well.
Gameplay and Prizes
As gold have only grown in price since the ancient Celts times, the jackpot in Rainbow Charms is very generous – it is 6,000,000 dollars. The game is played on 5×3 reels. The number of paylines is adjustable and can be varied in the range from 1 to 30.
Contrary to most games with customizable win lines, Rainbow Charms clearly shows paylines that you turn on or off on its screen, so you don’t have to read a help menu in order to understand that paylines are the active for your game.
The Total bet value is counted by multiplying base bet by number of active paylines. As the base bet can be varied in the range from 1 eurocent to 20 euro, the total bet can be varied in the range from 1 eurocent to 600 euro. It gives Rainbow Charms great tactic deepness and allows the player to select one of the many possible game strategies.
This game has 8 paying symbols, among which there are an Irish harp, a leprechaun’s shoe and, of course, a glass of beer. There are also three bonus symbols, among which, of course, there is leprechaun that is a wild symbol. The Autoplay mode is present, just like most of other NeoGames slot machines.
Arts and animations in Rainbow Charms are very funny, colorful and bright – a rainbow, situated on top of the game field, shines, as the reels are spinning, and leprechauns on the wild symbols laugh if any winning combination are formed with them.
Features and Bonuses
As it was mentioned above, leprechauns in Rainbow Charms serve as wild symbols. Additionally, there are two more bonus symbols in Rainbow Charms – gold pots are scatter symbols that award from 1 to 100 free spins depending on their number, and four-leaf clovers apply a win multiplier to all of the paylines. If any free spins are triggered, a possibility of wild and scatter symbols emergence increases.
