Drops of Gold Game Set Up
This version of Rainbow Riches has a very distinctive layout. The main reel set is 5 reels wide by 4 rows high. There is also a ‘Drop Zone’ that is 5 reels and 4 rows high, with rainbow colors and Gold and Silver pots feeding into it. This is key to the bonus feature explained below.
Drops of Gold has 50 to 200 paylines. The classic card symbols, 10 through to Ace form the lower value ones. The premium symbols are the harps, mushrooms, lucky horseshoes, violins and the famous Rainbow Riches game logo, which itself is the most rewarding at 5x for five on a payline.
There are also Bonus Symbols that trigger the Free Spins round AND Pot Wilds that are key to the Drops of Gold Feature.
Pot Wilds and Drops of Gold Bonus Feature
The special symbols to look out for here are the Silver and Gold Pot Wilds:
Silver Pot Wilds: Substitute for all symbols EXCEPT the Bonus.
Gold Pot Wilds: Substitute for ALL other symbols.
Look out for Drops of Gold logo symbols landing as one or two stacks on the 5threel at any point during the game. When this happens, the silver and gold pots appearing in the Drop Zone above will fall into the corresponding places on the main reel set.
Remember, Gold and Silver pots are wild, creating more chances to form win lines when they drop onto the main reel set!
Drops of Gold Free Spins Round
You need three or more Bonus Round symbols to trigger the free spins round:
3 Bonus Symbols: 8 Free Spins
4 Bonus Symbols: 12 Free Spins
5 Bonus Symbols: 16 Free Spins
NOTE:It is possible to re-trigger the free spins ONCE by landing more Bonus symbols during the round, giving a maximum of 32 free spins.
During Free Spins you can ALSO trigger the Drops of Gold feature when Drops of Gold symbols land on reel 5.
Big Bet Feature
Barcrest slots often come with Big Bets, and Drop of Gold is no exception. Depending on the size of your bet, the features increase and the game’s Return to Player (RTP) does too.
£20 Big Bet Game – Get an enhanced, Super Rainbow above the main reel set, containing more silver and gold pot wilds. PLUS, only the double stack of Drops of Gold symbols appear on reel 5, which increases your chances of landing this feature.
£30 Big Bet Game – In this enhanced version of Drops of Gold, the same rules as the £20 Big Bet apply, PLUS ALL lower value symbols are removed from the game, making it easier to form big-money paylines.
£50 Big Bet Game – This version is the same as the £30 Big Bet, except you play on a 100 payline reel set … PLUS … if you trigger free spins then this increases further to 200 PAYLINES!
Our Verdict on This Game
This is an exciting addition to the Rainbow Riches group of games – the Super Rainbow reel set up looks amazing and adds another layer of excitement to the slot. Of course, there are none of the traditional iconic features – no road to riches, pots of gold or wishing wells. But the gameplay is still excellent and for a medium variance slot there is a lot happening on most spins.
