Is there a story behind the theme or idea of this slot? 

It’s 100% classic Rainbow Riches. This is always the biggest challenge with Rainbow Riches, we want to move the series forward but not by so much that you turn off the existing customer base.

My team's first attempt at a Rainbow Riches was a cluster pays game with a complete graphical overhaul of the brand. While it was a great game, it wasn’t a “Rainbow Riches” game, and didn’t see anywhere near the numbers we expected. 

Rainbow Riches Power Pitch Slot

We have a whole host of mechanics which are loved by UK audiences that have yet to be used in a Rainbow Riches title but still allow us to remain faithful to what makes a Rainbow Riches game great.

How long did it take to create this game? 

From start to finish this game has taken us 9 months to complete.

What are the bonus features in Rainbow Riches Power Pitch? How do they work for the player?

Rainbow Riches Power Pitch Slot Free Spins

Rainbow Riches Power Pitch gives the customer the classic Rainbow Riches base game feel and adds in a huge 9 x 5 Hold and Win bonus round. We’ve thrown in multiplying hot zones, extra lives, and an expanding reel array for extra value.

Anyone lucky enough to completely fill the reel array will be instantly awarded 10,000x.

What, in your opinion, is the most exciting thing or feature in this slot that the players will love? 

This is the first new release where we’ve added in Premium Play. Premium Play allows the player to spin a 1 line, 3 reel slot where you can win cash prizes or be awarded instant access to the feature.

What are the next releases we should be expecting? 

The one that I'm most excited about is our new Mighty Ways mechanic. Mighty Ways is a Ways game where for every winning symbol, the reels will increase in height, so it gives that 'multiple ways' feel to a game. We're going to go big on that this year: we've done Cluedo Mighty Ways - which was a really strong game for us - but we're going to go back and do 300 Shields as a Mighty Ways game. 300 Shields is just a crazy, volatile game, and what we're going to do is have a super feature in that game that you can purchase for 1,600x that's going to give you guaranteed 300x multipliers on every Spartan win. I was playing the sim for it yesterday; it's just crazy and I cannot wait for it! 300 Shields is one of my favourite games of all time, so to go back and do that as a Mighty Ways game is really exciting. We've Got Invaders Mighty Ways coming out later in the year, and then I think in November we finish with Raging Rhino Mighty Ways.
