Among the masses of very good online slot games out there today, there is a rather large number of games at 666 Casino that adhere to the same theme.
One of these such themes is that of Luck o’ the Irish, with the old Irish charm clearly being an attractive trait for both developers and online gamblers. The amount of games made with this aesthetic and narrative in mind, makes it a little harder to stand out from the rest of the rainbows and leprechauns at times, but Rainbrew does just that with a unique twist of the format.
This 3, 5, 5, 5, 3 reel slot game with 243 ways to win, turns rainbows into a brew, enjoyed by leprechauns, themselves. The unique layout and this slightly humorous narrative combine to make a fine addition to the many Irish themed slot games out there already.
About the developer
Rainbrew was developed by Just For The Win in collaboration with Microgaming.
The latter is a name that regular players of online slot games will know well, as Microgaming have a huge collection of online slot games and slot machines to their name, with many of them using interesting and original themes.
Microgaming have done well to add a different dynamic to the Irish themed slot game here, adding some of their smart, trademark animations to make a very playable slot game.
About the game
As already mentioned, Rainbrew has a different narrative to most Irish themed slot games. We aren’t just chasing rainbows and pots of gold here, as the leprechauns featured are crafting their own brew which, judging by the colour of it, looks as if it is made of rainbows.
Bubbles in pipes provide the border for the reels, with a blue tube and a green tube at the top and bottom of the screen respectively. The symbols of the reels look woody, with smoking pipes, mugs full of this special rainbow brew, barrels and the game’s 2 leprechaun characters appearing on them.
The game has quite an interesting layout but one that many gamers will have seen before, as 243 ways to win are made of the 3, 5, 5, 5, 3 reels on display. On them you will see wild symbols that are able to substitute for almost all other symbols to create a winning combination. The only symbol that a wild cannot be swapped for is the scatter, which is crucial to the bonus features.
The bonus features in Rainbrew come in the form of a classic free spins round and the more custom-made feature, which is the Sidewinder Feature.
The former is triggered when the scatter lands on reels 2, 4 and the horizontal reels, with up to 10 free spins being the result.
All in all, this is a fine addition to the slot game collection that Microgaming has and a fine addition to all of the popular Irish-themed slot games out there, too. The free spins feature is key to big wins, so let’s hope you land those scatters.
