Marking St. Patrick's Day this week, online gambling software provider Rival Gaming launched a thoroughly Irish video slot branded Shamrock Isle.
The 5 reel 20 payline game opens with a video clip based on a large emerald, and features a slew of free spins, scatter, wild and bonus opportunities, the latter on a second screen that offers a choice of three games. With artwork full of shamrocks, four leaf clovers, pots ‘o gold, harps and gaelic designs, there's no doubt about the origins of the theme.
The leprechaun is the wild symbol and offers the highest fixed jackpot as well as doubling payouts. During free spins the leprechaun symbol appears only on the first three reels, but appears as an expanding wild, delivering larger rewards. Free spins are initiated by the harp, with a generous 125 achievable in which winnings are tripled.
Appropriately enough, the pot ‘o gold triggers the second screen bonus game in which a choice from three games is offered – Coin Grab, Road Bowl and Skittles.
