Ready to play Rainbrew for real?
Join your fellow slot players on a tasting tour through the lucky leprechauns’ brewery and sample some of the best Irish ales on Rainbrew, a slot creation of Just For The Win. Experience an unusual reel format with the new Sidewinder feature which enhances the reels from 243 up to 1,125 ways to win. Your taste buds will be sweetened with wins of up to 2,720x your stake.
Launched in 2016, the relatively new Sweden-based game studio has quickly established itself in the online gaming world through its innovative game design and unique pay mechanics. The rise of Just For The Win was well aided by the fact that its slots were hosted on the Microgaming Quickfire platform, giving them an instant presence at hundreds of casino sites. Among the developer’s latest games are Temple of Tuts, Amazing Aztecs and Lucky Links.
Lucky Leprechaun Slot Reels
The entrance to the leprechauns’ brewery, with its beer-filled barrels stacked on both sides of the door, provides a fitting background for the Rainbrew slot. A frameless game window resembles a brewing kettle. The two transparent horizontal tubes of the Sidewinder feature sit at the top and bottom of the three center reels, and will play a vital role in the gameplay. A catchy Irish soundtrack will have players tapping through their slot-playing sessions, as colorful animations add to the suspense of hitting big wins.
Rainbrew has 10 pay symbols which start with five gem arrangements in green, blue, orange, purple and red at the low end. At the medium-value level are a smoke pipe, a beer-tasting glass and a beer barrel. The two top symbols are the female and male leprechaun brewmasters. All pay symbols can appear semi-stacked up to two reel positions high. Wild symbols appear only on reel two and four as well as on all three positions in the horizontal Sidewinder tubes. Based on the color and arrow pointers, the wilds on the reels will trigger the Sidewinder feature. The slot’s scatters are represented by the Rainbrew slot logo appearing on reel two and four only.
Lucky Numbers and Stats
Rainbrew is a medium-variance slot with a 5×3 standard format in the base game and 243 ways to win. Activating one or two Sidewinder tubes will increase the game window to a 3-5-5-5-3 format with 576 and 1,125 ways. The experience in the lucky brewery is enhanced by the new Sidewinder feature and a free spins round with expanding wilds. The cost for a round of beer ranges between 0.10 and 100 coins. Payouts for a single five-of-a-kind range from 2x to 8x the stake. The best tasters can take home wins of up to 2,720x their bet.
A magnanimous RTP of 96.02% and medium volatility will make sure that the tasting tour does not end quickly. Just For The Win designed Rainbrew in HTML5 format, which makes it available for play on desktop and mobile devices across all OS platforms. Autoplay will allow players to opt for up to 100 consecutive spins.
The Sidewinder Feature
The pay mechanic is a new JFTW feature that enhances the slot reels. It will take a few spins to fully understand how it works. Two horizontal Sidewinder reels are placed at the top and bottom of the game window, covering the three middle reels. Both contain only wild symbols and Rainbrew scatters in the base game and free spins. Activating one of the reels will open the ways to win from 243 to 576, while triggering both will see that grow to the maximum of 1,125 ways. The Sidewinder reels can also trigger the free spins or add extra free spins during the bonus round.
Wild symbols on reel two or four will activate the Wild Sidewinder feature. The blue Top Wild appearing on reel two has arrows pointing up, and it will activate the horizontal Sidewinder reel at the top of the game window. The green Bottom Wild appears on reel four and has arrows pointing down, activating the bottom Sidewinder reel. When wilds land simultaneously on reels two and four, both Sidewinder reels are activated.
Once activated, the respective Sidewinder reel will spin one time. A variety of wilds can land on the Sidewinder reels. The standard wild in rainbow colors will end the feature, and any potential wins are paid according to the pay table. The blue Top Wild will appear only on the bottom Sidewinder reel, awarding an additional spin on the top reel. The green Bottom Wild appears on the top Sidewinder reel only, giving you an additional spin on the bottom reel. This will continue until no blue or green wilds land on either of the reels. The maximum amount of wilds that can land on the Sidewinder reels in the base game is three at the top and three at the bottom.
The Free Spins With a Lucky Twist
Rainbrew scatters on reels two and four in one spin will activate both Sidewinder reels. One spin on each is awarded with only Rainbrew scatters on the horizontal reels. The free spins are triggered when a minimum of one further scatter lands on either of the Sidewinder reels. Three scatters will award six free spins, while four scatters will increase the number to 10.
During the free spins round, the Sidewinder feature is always active, and the game window is expanded to the maximum 1,125 ways. After the reels stop on a free spin, each Sidewinder reel will spin one time to potentially reveal more wild symbols or Rainbrew scatters. Each Rainbrew scatter will add one additional free spin.
Only the rainbow-colored standard wild will appear on the Sidewinder reels. They can appear as single symbols or in blocks of two or three symbols. The kicker in the free spins that will produce big wins is when wilds land directly opposite on the same reel. The wilds will expand to form a stack of five wilds and cover the entire reel. A block of three wilds landing on the top and bottom reel will lead to the three middle reels being fully covered with stacks of five wild symbols, resulting in 125 ways of winning combinations. This is the best and only moment to hit the maximum win of 2,720x your bet on Rainbrew.
More Unusual Lucky Reels
Slots with expanding or flexible reel mechanics are relatively new, but they have proven to be very popular as they add an extra excitement factor. The mathematical models here are much more extensive and complicated, and many providers have yet to release such games. But those who already have certainly got players around the world all excited. A fine example of slot math ingenuity is Laser Fruit from Red Tiger Gaming, with up to 60,466,176 ways to win plus a win potential which peaks at a massive 10,000x your bet. Novomatic has released its own take on flexible reels with Tidal Riches, while Big Time Gaming has taken the concept to new heights with its MegaWays series in games such as Bonanza. No doubt, more will be coming our way.
Final Tasty Verdict
Did we enjoy the tasting tour and the fine Irish ales? We certainly did. Rainbrew is an entertaining slot with an innovative pay mechanic. Plus, the high win potential and the catchy soundtrack further enhance the gaming experience. A visit to the leprechauns’ brewery is well worth it. Cheers!
