Rainbow Riches Home Sweet Home Features
Knock Knock Bonus
The big news with this game is a new feature called the Knock Knock Bonus Feature. To trigger this you will need to land a large leprechaun scatter on reel 1 in a full stack.
When this happens, between 1 and 4 of the doors above the main reel-set will open to reveal a set of symbols which will turn into wilds, OR a Fairy which will choose between 2 and 5 positions that will turn wild during the next Free Spins round.
Free Spins Bonus
Next look out for the stacks of Leprechaun Scatters – when they land in FULL on reels 1, 3 and 5, then you have yourself 8 free spins.
At this point, the symbols and symbol positons revealed in the Knock Knock Bonus round become active, opening up the chance for lots of wilds to land across the reels and set up big wins.
NOTE: It’s also possible to land three more scatters and get 8 more free spins during the bonus round, taking your spins total to 16!
Big Bet Feature
Lots of Barcrest slots have this super-sized bet option. In these games you bet with increased odds of big wins. Here it how it works:
£20 Big Bet Game –5 spins in a row where if you only land the Leprechaun Scatter partially it will nudge itself into place to trigger the Knock Knock Bonus.
£30 Big Bet Game – 5 spins in a row where again, the Leprechaun Scatter nudges into place if it only lands partially. In the £20 game you also play with ONLY premium symbols on the reels.
£50 Big Bet Game –This works the same as the £30 game, except when the Knock Knock Bonus round triggers, AT LEAST 2 doors minimum will open to create more wild wins in the next free spins round.
Our Verdict on This Game
Home Sweet Home is another exciting version of Rainbow Riches. The trick to getting big wins here is getting lots of transforming wilds in the Knock Knock round before landing free spins and re-triggers to build up your cache of free plays. For high rollers the Big Bet round is a great way to increase your chances of big wins!
