- but why not try one of these?
Anyone looking for a an Irish-themed online slot certainly doesn’t have to look very far; all of our recommended casinos have one or more such game complete with appropriate music and symbols including pots of gold, rainbows, leprechauns and the like. Shamrock Isle is Rival Gaming’s entry into this genre so read on to find out more.
Shamrock Isle plays out over five reels, three rows and up to twenty paylines; there’s a wooded backdrop to the reels with branches twisted into Celtic patterns on either side. Green is the main colour here as this game nails it’s flag squarely to the Irish mast.
There are three main symbols – a four-leaf clover, a unicorn and a heart/crown icon – with 9, 10, J, Q, K and A making up the lower values. The latter have a nice Celtic design inset.
The leprechaun is the wild symbol and will multiply by 2x any wins to which he contributes in the base game. It also expands to fill all positions on a reel if there’s a win to be made. There are two scatters – the pot of gold and the harp – which trigger their own features.
The harp is the key here and if you land three or more anywhere on the reels you will earn the following:
- Three harps – 10 free spins
- Four harps – 20 free spins
- Five harps – 125 free spins
During this round any wins you land will be subject to a 3x multiplier and it’s possible to re-trigger the spins by landing more harps.
The wild doesn’t do anything special here but it only appears on reels one, two and three.
Pot Of Gold Bonus
If you can land three of the pots of gold anywhere in view you will get to choose a mini-game to play:
- Coin Grab – grab the coins as they come into view and drag them into your bag before the leprechaun steals them
- Road Bowl – roll balls towards flags in the distance; each flag awards a coin prize
- Skittles – fling sticks at pins which will award a random number of coins
This is a high quality slot which some nice animations and sound effects. There’s plenty of replay value in the bonus features and they aren’t too difficult to trigger.
