Since online casinos hit the internet in 1996, the number one draw has been virtual video slots. Most online casinos are now more slots focused and each site carries hundreds of different games. There are so many slots now that there is literally something for every taste. Even though slots give the house the biggest edge of all casino games, punters are still willing to take these games on. Reasons behind this include the excitement each spin offers and the chemical high punters get from spinning the reels. Since virtual video slots have been going strong for years now, there is a good mix of classic games and new games that are well worth trying.
Rainbow Riches Slot
Rainbow Riches by Barcrest has become something of an all time classic with slots fans. This Irish themed slot based on legends and folklores from the Emerald Isles has been so successful in pubs arcades and online casinos that it has produced a number of spin off slots.
The original Rainbow Riches is a 5-reel 20-pay line slot and the star of this game is a Leprechaun. Rainbow Riches has 3 bonus rounds that include a Road To Riches money trail that is triggered by 3 or more Leprechauns. During this bonus the Leprechaun spins a wheel with numbers on it and this shows how many steps you take along the multiplier money trail. This bonus ends, when the wheel lands on Collect. The Wishing Well Bonus round is triggered by 3 or more wishing well symbols landing on the reels. The words ‘Pick Me’ appear on the wells and hidden within each one is a multiplier.
The third and most difficult of all the bonuses to land is the Pots Of Gold feature. If you land 3 pots you are taken to a separate screen where bronze, silver and gold pots spin in a circle. Each has a multiplier and the most you can win is 500x your original stake.
Rainbow Riches Pick N Mix Slot
Rainbow Riches Pick N Mix is a cousin of the original Rainbow Riches. A unique twist in this game is that it allows you to pick what bonus you would like to win on the reels. Bonus rounds from different versions of Rainbow Riches feature in this slot, and this is where the slot gets its name. The best of the bonuses that can be triggered on Rainbow Riches Pick N Mix are the free spins, Cash Crop and Magic Toadstool round.
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways Slots
Away from classics like Rainbow Riches, some of the brand new Megaways slots such as Gonzo’s Quest Megaways are well worth spinning. Gonzo’s Quest Megaways is collaboration between NetEnt and Red Tiger. NetEnt are the creative force behind the original Gonzo’s Quest but Red Tiger have added the Megways element to the slot. The Megaways version is on a bigger scale with more reels more symbols and larger winning lines and multipliers are still a feature here.
