Ah, the luck of the Irish. Historically a term coined by some Irish folk who had managed to rack up mining fortunes during the gold and silver rushes, the term now jiggles to mind four leaf clovers (shamrocks), pots of gold hidden at the end of rainbows, and the cheeky leprechauns that hid them there.
Now you can experience As you enjoy an enchanting Celtic experience in the lush green fields of Irish Eyes, the newly released unique game from Microgaming™, keep an eye out for a wee man dressed in green (with a beard and pointy hat, of course), and an Irish beauty with flaming red locks. These two characters represent the Wild and Scatter features of this game respectively.
The Wild symbol can stand in for any other symbol in order to help players create winning symbol combinations and also awards between 1 and 5 icons. The Scatter symbol gives players twelve free spins, during which all winnings are tripled. Other symbols include shamrocks, a golden pathway, 9s, 10s, Jacks, Queens and Kings, all of which are designed in a way that maintains the fun Irish theme.
Although nowadays we see Leprechauns as symbols of Irish tourism, and icons of St Patrick’s Day and all the debauchery that is associated with this fun, whimsical day, Leprechauns have a detailed history. Traditionally a mischievous, fairy like being who worked making shoes, Leprechauns were said to deposit their coins in a secret pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The power to grant three wishes to any human who captured them wasn’t the only trick Leprechauns were said to hold up their sleeves. Leprechauns are said to carry two leather pouches with them at all times – one containing a silver shilling that magically returns to his pouch every time it is spent, and another that contains a gold coin. The gold coin is used as a bribe to get Leprechauns outs of tricky situations and turns to ash after it leaves the Leprechauns possession. However, it should be noted that these crafty little folk will do anything to avoid being caught – even turning their captors into small reptiles – thus making this figure the perfect Wild symbol.
Follow the rainbow through the 25 Paylines and 5 rolling Reels as you cash in Free Spins and activate the Pick Me Bonus which lets players win up to 100 times their triggering bet. This feature comes in to play when the Leprechaun lands on reels 1 and 5. Players then pick a symbol which reveals a prize. Extra lucky players might see “Pick Again” or “Win All” pop up on their screen, giving them the chance to claim extra bonuses.
The betting range ranges from 1 penny and $/£/€50, which makes this slot a game that caters to every pocket. All recorded wins give players the option of taking a risk by throwing more of their money into the Leprechaun’s pot, continuing their leisurely stroll down the golden pathway or cashing in for the the day. However, upon choosing to continue to play, players’ have the opportunity to double their wins by picking the correct colour, or quadrupling their pennies by choosing the right suit.
With crisp, clear graphics and gentle animations that will send players into daydreams of delicious picnics in the glorious Irish countryside, and sound effects to further boost the gaming experience, this is one game that slots players will not want to miss. Well, unless they are scared to test their “Irish luck”, that is.
