Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours

In 2018 the newest Rainbow Riches slot to be ready to play was Fortune Favours – a 5 reel and 10 payline slot with a special Magic Fairy Wild feature that will transform itself into a random symbol to create winlines. Fortune Favours also features a Big Bet option with no less than FOUR reel sets to gamble on!

Fortune Favours Game Set Up and Symbols 

This slot has a standard 5 reel and 3 row set up. The game uses the usual Rainbow Riches branding, with plenty of emerald greens and golds. You can spin from 10p right up to a massive £500 per play and the Return to Player is up to decent 97.7% with the Big Bet feature.

The lower value symbols in the game are the cards, 10 through to Ace, whilst the premium symbols are the mushrooms, harps and rainbows.  There is also a Rainbow Riches logo that pays out a massive 2,500x for five on a payline.

The Magic Fairy Wild is really important in this game as it may land at any time, and when it does, it will transform into any random symbol to create winlines.

Fortune Favours Big Bet Feature

The Big Bet feature is common to many Barcrest games. Players can choose to play with Big Bet to give themselves an enhanced reel set and more chances to win. Bets can be placed from £10 up to £40. This is how it works:

£10 Big Bet – Standard game, but on four reels, with Magic Fairy active.

£20 Big Bet – Here, the fairy may transfer across the reels when she lands.

£30 Big Bet – Get additional standard wilds to create more win chances.

£40 Big Bet – Fairy and standard wilds are both active, and both transfer between reels.

£50 Big Bet – Just like the £40 Big Bet, but lower value card symbols are removed from the reels – play ONLY with premium symbols!

NOTE:  There are no free spins in this game! 

Our Verdict on This Game

Fortune Favours is a nice addition to the Rainbow Riches series. This is a pretty standard slot game until you get into the Big Bet features and they are quite expensive, but the payoffs can be huge. The wilds and fairy wilds are great opportunities to score big wins, especially when they transfer across the reels, dropping random symbols as they go.
