About Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic
Rainbow Riches by SG Digital has been a gambling market powerhouse for several decades, both online and offline. Canadians will be pleased to learn that the series continues with a sequel that does not break any new ground but delivers on all expectations. It has the same graphics as the others, a conservative medium variance, and the usual free spins and multipliers. Ain’t broke, right?
The psychedelic aesthetic of Midnight Magic is maybe its most notable feature – by painting the sky black and the trees pink and blue, SG may have accidentally made the cover of some obscure, undiscovered mind-bending 60s rock album. But, back to the slot game. It’s all about landing three matching symbols on pay lines from left to right to trigger the free spins round. Let’s learn more.
RTP, Variance, and Highest Payout
If you can advance to the free spins round, SG Digital has designed another medium variance variant of Rainbow Riches. For a full payline of high-value symbols, the top payoff is 1,000x the RTP.
SYMBOLS AND PAID
Again, SG Digital stuck to their guns. Except for the night skyline, the view is familiar. For a maximum payout of 5x-6x, the low value symbols on the reels are represented by playing cards from 10 to Ace. Leprechaun hats, fortunate horseshoes, harps, and toadstools are premium symbols, paying 10x to 20x for five of a kind.
The rainbow and the logo are the best paying icons. Only these two icons will pay for two of a kind. Five rainbows on a payline equals 25x, whereas five logos on the same payline equals 50x.
Watch out for the logo, which is a Wild symbol that can form winlines. Leprechaun: scatter that activates free spins; Fairy: upgrade scatter that only comes during free spins bonus round.
Gameplay and Specs
The features aren’t overwhelming, but they do have some potential. You want to be in the free spins round. But first the others.
Super Dial Bonus
Super Dial is an optional feature that can be triggered by doubling your bet. The Super Dial is activated by two leprechaun Scatters on the reels. The feature begins with a large stone wheel. Depending on where the Bonus Wheel stops, you’ll gain free spins or instant wins. You can win 6, 8, or 10 free spins, or a cash payout of 1-5x your stake.
Three leprechaun Scatters on the reels activate the Free Spins feature. If you get 3, 4, or 5 Scatters, you get 10, 15, or 20 free spins. Unfortunately the game isn’t generous enough to allow re-triggers, but 20 free spins is enough to land some decent prizes, particularly if you can score the symbol upgrade at the same time.
This only works during free spins. On the reels, a fairy replaces the leprechaun Scatter. When the fairy lands, all premium symbols, or “picture symbols” that are currently on the screen, will be transformed into the premium icon with the highest value currently on the reels. And if a Wild is present, all premiums become Wilds! That’s good if your update is valuable.
Fans of Rainbow Riches will enjoy this game – there are no crazy new ideas thrown into the mix. It’s a tried and tested brand so SG Digital know how to get punters playing it and why would they change it? That said, the night-time setting is at least quite striking and the free spins round can be fun. The fairy scatters and symbol upgrades have decent potential and if you get a Wild upgrade then you could get close to that 1,000x max payout. And of course, at a medium variance, Midnight Magic will have a broad appeal so it’s one for all slots players bar the high-risk fanatics who may wish to look away!
