Intro: Game Theme
Everyone loves rainbows. They tend to be a rare but delightful treat, a way to brighten things up after a heavy rainfall. However, the way rainbows are formed requires the sun to be out, making midnight rainbow impossible. Fortunately, we can always rely on slots to create worlds and images we could not see otherwise! Welcome to the world of Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic! Along the way, you will be able to enjoy a free spins round and the super dial bonus.
The design of this game is quite nice. The background is set on what looks to be a path in a small forest village. We can see several trees, a fence and what looks like a pot of coins in the bottom right of the background. However, the most iconic visual elements are undoubtedly the large full Moon above the reels, and a rainbow. Its multiple colours stand out even more in the purplish night sky.

How it Works
You play this release on a five-reel board with ten paylines. These paylines cannot be turned on or off to adjust your total stake. Wins are formed by finding three or more matching symbols in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. All winning combinations must follow one of the ten active paylines, or else the cash prize will not be granted. Barcrest use the same user interface that they do in their other titles. Through it, we can spin the reels, change our total bet and access a variety of options like the paytable. Unique to Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic is the Super Dial button in the bottom right. Players can bet between £0.10 and £400 on each spin.
Available icon designs are a mix of playing card royals and a variety of lucky or Leprechaun themed symbols. The playing card royals are nothing special. They serve as decent low value icons, but fail to stand out in any way. The remaining symbols are better in this aspect, but not by much. If you played any slots that used a similar theme to this title, they will probably seem very similar. The game logo is the Wild, while the smiling leprechaun serves the role of Scatter.
Free spins are activated when you have three, four or five Scatters on the playing field at the same time. This will grant ten, fifteen or twenty free spins, respectively. During free spins, a fairy can appear. When she does, she will upgrade all picture icons into the highest paying picture symbol that is on the playing field. This also applies to the Wild, since it has its own cash value. That means if a Wild is present on the reels, all higher value icons will be transformed into more Wilds. Unlike many other games, you are unable to unlock additional free spins.
Players are given the option to ‘purchase’ the Super Dial special feature. Clicking the button doubles your current wager. If you were betting £1 per spin, Super Dial will set it to £2 per spin. That said, you can adjust the value of the bet so it suits your budget once more. The special feature activates when you land two leprechaun Scatters on the same spin. This triggers a bonus wheel to appear, which contains free spins or cash prizes. Cash prizes are awarded immediately when won. The wheel can grant six, eight or ten free spins. The fairy upgrade will be active during this bonus, too.
Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic is one of the most delightful releases to come out of Barcrest recently. It only has two special features, but they manage to keep things interesting throughout. The slot has a medium variance and a top prize worth 1000x your total stake. A rather well balanced title, it is well worth your time if you are not hunting for massive jackpots.
