Rainbow Riches is one of the most famous series of slot games in the world. After its phenomenal success as land-based machines, Barcrest moved their Irish luck themed slot games online, where they quickly proved just as popular with mobile and desktop players.
Now a new edition, Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold, is set for release. And what better way to celebrate a slot that’s filled with lots of pots ‘o gold than by checking out the coolest things you can buy made from gold. . .
