Emerald King Rainbow Road Slot Review
A new collaboration between Pragmatic Play and Reel Kingdom sees the leprechaun king returning to the Emerald Isle in the follow-up release. This risky Irish-themed game features two new bonus additions, an increased RTP rate and the same superb max win potential. You can still trigger the special Mini Slots feature, where up to 15 mini slots award cash prizes, but it’s the neat Rainbow Road bonus feature that will bring the ultimate rewards in this edition.

Emerald King Rainbow Road Bonus Features
Similar to its sibling, the Emerald King Rainbow Road slot is as simple as it gets, although this time you do get a few more exiting bonus features. The developer has kept the Mini Slots bonus round; it’s just triggered in a different way here. The two new additions are the Scatter Eliminator bonus round where you get to win cash prizes and the titled Rainbow Road, capable of awarding the game’s max win to any lucky players.
Shown as a gold coin with a lucky green clover on it, the game’s wild symbol can appear anywhere on the reels. It will substitute for all paying symbols in an attempt to form a winning combination.
If the original Emerald King edition didn’t have any scatters, this one has two. The Rainbow Road scatter is illustrated as the Emerald King himself, and he’s in charge of triggering the respective bonus round. The fabled pot of gold is the second bonus symbol. Called the Eliminator scatter, it can land anywhere on the screen to trigger the pick bonus round.
This bonus round activates as soon as you spin 3, 4 or 5 Emerald King scatters into view. The grid transforms into a riches road dotted with money prizes and mini 3-reel slot machines.
Each time you spin the mini 1-reel machine in the bottom left corner, you’ll have up to 6 chances to advance through the 22 steps until you hit ‘Collect.’ As you progress, you’ll pick up 5x up to 22x your stake awards and if you step on the mini slot machine along the way, the Emerald King Mini Slot bonus feature will begin.
Walk the length of the road, and you might be so lucky as to trigger the game’s incredible max potential on the very last step of your journey. Known as ‘Big Money’, the final step contains random values from 50x up to a whopping max win of 20,000x times your stake.
Scatter Eliminator Bonus
This is just a fancy name for a pick bonus game. The round begins when you land 3, 4 or 5 golden pot scatters anywhere on the grid. As you pick the triggering scatters one by one, they’ll reveal cash prizes, but only the value of the last scatter picked will be awarded.
Aside from cash prizes, each of the triggering scatters might also reveal the Emerald King Rainbow Road logo, which will grant you entry into the game’s main bonus round. Otherwise, triggering the eliminator bonus round with 3 scatters awards 5x-20x your stake, 4 scatters award 10x-40x your bet and 5 scatters award 50x-200x your bet.
Emerald King Mini Slots Bonus
Remember those mini-slots machines on the rainbow road? This is what happens when you step on one of them when you take the rainbow route. The entire grid will turn green, and a random number of up to 15 mini slot machines, dispensing different awards, will spin until there are no more wins for you to catch.
Rewards depend on the colour of the 777 symbols that you’ll land during the feature. The biggest prize, 15x your stake, comes from three red 7s, while 10x your stake is won by landing three yellow 7s. Three blue 7s award 5x your stake and, finally, three 7s of any mixed colour award the smallest multiplier of 1x.
Emerald King Rainbow Road Jackpot
You’ll notice early on that any type of jackpot has been excluded from the Emerald King Rainbow Road slot. But the good news is that the developer has compensated for the lack of jackpot payouts with a rather generous 20,000x your stake max win.
