Rainbow Jackpots Megaways: Slot Overview

See the word ‘Rainbow’ in an online slot title, and it’s an almost dead cert you’re about to leap head first into a world of magical entities adorned in top hats and green attire while pipes or mugs of frothy beer are near at hand. A leprechaun slot, in other words, and Rainbow Jackpots Megaways from game provider Red Tiger is just that. To compensate for the garden variety theme, Red Tiger has stacked its leprechaun slot with a bunch of features while also making it one of the higher-paying games in its extensive portfolio.

Rainbow Jackpots Megaways does paint a very pleasant scene. Gamblers find themselves amongst rich green hills, on a balmy, sunny day. Imagine lying down on the warm grass, shutting your eyes, absorbing the sunlight, and feeling a connection in your being to both the earth and the people that have walked it over the years, as if time has stopped and eternity exists in a moment. Rainbow Jackpots Megaways looks nice, let’s just say. Totally generic type of stuff that’s been seen in a slot a ton of times, but it’s easy on the eyes.

Stuck between twisty carved wood is Rainbow Jackpots Megaways’ gaming grid. Each of its 6 reels lands 2-7 symbols, producing up to 117,649 ways to win. A highly volatile game, the default RTP is 95.77%, and bets of 20 c to $/€4 per spin may be picked.

A Megaways staple, the symbols forming winning combinations disappear making spaces for symbols to drop down and replace them. If a win occurs after the symbols drop the chain reactions feature triggers again. Much of Rainbow Jackpots Megaways looks pretty generic, and its pay symbols follow suit. They include 10 to A royals, a top hat, a horseshoe, and a golden clover. Hitting 6 matching royals in a win pays 0.3-0.4 times the bet, while 6 matching high pays awards 0.6 to 2.5 times the bet. The wild may land on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 only. The wild substitutes for all paying symbols.

Rainbow Jackpots Megaways: Slot Features

Rainbow Jackpots Megaways has chain reactions and features that can be triggered by scatters or the Lucky Leprechaun’s Lucky Pipe, such as free spins, Random Tiles, Beer Bonus, Fairy Bonus, as well as feature buys.

Lucky Leprechaun Features

The Lucky Leprechaun character may appear during a spin and blow his Lucky Pipe. This triggers one of these features – Random Tiles, Mega Random Tiles, Free Spins, Mega Free Spins, Beer Bonus, Mega Beer Bonus, Fairy Bonus, or Mega Fairy Bonus.

Random Tiles

When blowing his pipe, the Lucky Leprechaun may reveal a wild symbol or any non-royal pay symbol. When this happens, 3 or more couples of this symbol rain down on the reels from left to right. Pay symbols start from the leftmost reel; wilds start from the second reel. If the Mega version activates, 3 or more Mega Random Tiles covering an enter reel rain down in the same manner as the regular Random Tiles. Mega Random Tiles have a symbol multiplier of x2 to x7, counting for as many symbols as the number displays.

Beer Bonus

Landing 3 or 4 Beer Bonus scatters on reels 2-5 triggers the Beer Bonus or the Mega Beer Bonus, respectively. Or, the Lucky Leprechaun may reveal 3 or 4 Beer Bonus scatters when blowing his pipe. Once triggered, 4 beer taps appear above the middle four reels. For the Beer Bonus, payers pick a tap which fills a glass with beer, awarding 10x to 60x the bet. In the Mega Beer Bonus, players win from all four taps, where the possible multipliers are 50x to 1,000x the bet.

Fairy Bonus

Landing 3 or more Fairy Bonus scatters triggers the Fairy Bonus, or the Lucky Leprechaun may lead to 3 or 4 Fairy Bonus scatters triggering the round. The Fairy Bonus has 6 levels, starting from level 1. However, when landing 4, 5, or 6 scatters guarantees that level 2, 3, and 4 are respectively reached. Now, each level has 6 crystals to pick from, revealing a prize. If an arrow is also revealed in addition to the prize then the bonus continues by moving to the next level. The possible multipliers on each level are: Level 1 – 5x to 20x, Level 2 – 10x to 50x, Level 3 – 30x to 150x, Level 4 – 50x to 250x, Level 5 – 100x to 1,000x, and Level 6 – 500x to 5,000x.

Free Spins

Landing 3 free spins scatters on reels 2-5 triggers 10 free spins, while 4 scatters on reels 2-5 triggers 10 mega free spins. The Lucky Leprechaun may reveal 3 or 4 free spins scatters when blowing his Lucky Pipe. Free spins have a rising multiplier that increases by +1 for each winning type of symbol in a spin. The multiplier starts at x1 in free spins or x5 in mega free spins. Landing a scatters awards +1 free spin. The Lucky Leprechaun may appear, but his Lucky Pipe can only reveal Random Tiles or Mega Random Tiles.

Feature Buy

At the feature buy, you can get free spins for 80x, the Lucky Leprechaun for 20x, the Beer Bonus for 45x, or the Fairy Bonus for 35x the bet. The feature buy RTP is 95.69%.

Rainbow Jackpots Megaways: Slot Verdict

What was good about reviewing Rainbow Jackpots Megaways was the way you can buy each of the main features and see what they’re all about. Some are quite reasonably priced, especially compared to some feature buys you come across these days, but no doubt the Red Tiger numbers boffins have ensured that they’re appropriately priced so they adhere to the respective RTP values. Meaning, just cos some of them are ‘cheap’ they aren’t guaranteed gold mines or anything. The Fairy Bonus can easily stop out on the first level with a meh prize, for example, and the same goes for the Beer Bonus. Luck may flow the other way, though; you never know, a bought feature might turn out all right.

Or, you can shun the bonus buys altogether and rely on Rainbow Jackpots Megaways to do its thing organically. There are quite a lot of features giving the game a decent shelf life, for players who want to see everything. Free spins are a teensy bit so-so since having a rising multiplier in a Megaways bonus round is about as common as the leprechaun theme. Since Rainbow Jackpots Megaways has a handful of other more unique features, the free spins round’s commonality stuck out. A bit, not in a bad way, plus the increase by one for each winning type of symbol is quite differently neat. It is possible to trigger either Random Tiles feature during the round, too; that’s something.

Something else which stuck out is Rainbow Jackpots Megaways’ 20,000x the bet max win, making it one of Red Tiger’s ‘bigger’ slots. Make it to the end of this rainbow, and the pot o’ gold might be quite substantial, so if virtually chasing rainbows with leprechauns in a slot is of personal interest, then Rainbow Jackpots Megaways puts forth some compelling arguments to give it a try.


Rainbow Jackpots Megaways’ generic theme is offset to an extent by a comprehensive list of features and big winning potential.
