Just For The Win began its online journey back in 2016 and has lately proven its worth following a series of online slot releases that have left slot players booming with excitement. Teaming up with Microgaming has given the company a quick recognition and a firmer hold onto the online platform. Experience the developer’s Rainbrew and other stunning creations such as Amazing Aztecs, Temple of Tut and Lucky winnings, all available on Microgaming casinos.
The super tasty Rainbrew slot allows us a sip from the Irish brewery pots and is a stunning 5×3 layout and 243 ways to win. And this is only from the beginning since you’re set to unlock up to 576 more ways to win and further a whopping 1125 ways courtesy of the new sidewinder.
3 types of wilds have been added in the beer barrels to give your taste buds a treat. Enter the free spin round and experience the expanding wilds which can render the entire reels wild and give you a chance with a cool 2720x win on a single spin.
The background features an entrance to the leprechaun brewery with beer-filled barrels standing on both sides of the door. Find two horizontal tubes of the sidewinder feature at the top and bottom of the middle reels. A frameless game window takes the shape of a brewing pot. The colourful animations and catchy Irish soundtrack add to the suspense as you anticipate your next big win.

Meet the male and female leprechaun brew masters who will do everything to give you a great taste of the beer. These are the symbols you'll be happy to find since they pay up to 8 times your stake for 5 of a kind. Medium value symbols include a beer barrel, a beer tasting glass and a smoke pipe. Five gems coloured red, green, orange, blue and purple represent the least paying bunch and will occur more often in small-win combinations to compensate for their small returns.
All the symbols on the reels can come in semi stacks taking up to 2 reel positions high.
Wilds will only appear on reels 2 and 4. The colour and the arrow of the pointer will determine how the sidewinder feature is triggered. There is a blue top wild that appears on reel 2 with arrows pointing up, the green bottom wild that appears on reel 4 with arrows pointing down, and the standard rainbow-coloured wild.
The rainbrew game logo is the scatter symbol, appearing on reels 2 and 4 only to unlock the free spins round.
Your adventure with the sweet Irish pots begins on a 5x3 structure with 243 ways to win before it escalates to 3, 5, 5, 5, 3 structure with 576 ways and 1125 ways during the sidewinder feature. Your beer budget starts from 10p to a maximum of 100 coins. Wins start coming in with at least 3 matching symbols on the reels. Five of a king combinations pay from 2 times to 8 times your stake with the maximum win peaking at 2720 times your stake.
This is a medium variance slot with a published RTP of 96.02%. This means you're going to play a few more rounds even on a small budget. Wins reach their greatest potential in the free spins round when you hit those expanding wilds in a continuous flow of free games.
The value of your payouts will depend on the size of your stake and the value of the symbols contributing to your winning combinations as listed in the paytable.
Two sidewinder reels appear in the top and bottom horizontal positions covering the vertical reels. Only wilds and scatters will settle on these reels in the base game and during the free spins round. You need a wild on reel 2 or 4 to trigger the sidewinder feature which unlocks a 576 ways system. Land wilds on both reels and you have a whopping 1125 ways to win.
This is what happens in the feature: a blue top wild appearing on reels 2 will activate the top sidewinder reel while a green bottom wild appearing on reel 4 will activate the bottom sidewinder reel. A respin follows, and several wilds can settle on the respective sidewinder reels. The top blue wild will only appear on the bottom sidewinder reel and award an extra spin on the top reel.
The bottom green wild will only appear on the top sidewinder reel and award an extra spin on the bottom reel. Payouts are allocated with more respins following until there are no more blue or green wilds falling on the reels. A standard rainbow-coloured on the reels wild will also award you the outstanding prize and end the sidewinder feature.
Activate the free spins bonus by getting Rainbrew logo scatters on reels 2 and 4. The two top and bottom reels will be activated, and a respin will follow. Three scatters will earn you 6 free games while 4 scatters will lead to 10 free games. Any one scatter on the reel will give you an extra free spin. This bonus round is enhanced by the expanding wilds when you land two standard rainbow-coloured wilds directly opposite each other on the same reel. These wilds will expand to fill the whole reels. Get three scatters on both top and bottom reels and experience the whole reel set going wild, giving you the greatest potential with huge wins.
Rainbrew: Final Thoughts
This is another slot full of colour and action that takes Just For The Win developers to the next level. The sidewinder feature is a great contribution to the game's fun and reward. The free spins round will keep you sipping from the Irish pots on a minimum budget and enhance your chance with great wins especially when those expanding wilds kick in.
