What is “Irish Luck” mobile slot about?
Irish Luck is a fairytale-like video slot game, released by Playtech back in 2009. As its name suggests, is an Irish-themed game, and as such there’s everything you would expect it to have – from pots of gold, celtic symbols and leprechauns hiding in gold pots to pretty redheads. The game does not require download, and is compatible in HTML5 for tablets, smartphones or any Android devices, although some people have experienced difficulties with iPhone and iPad devices, as the bottom part of the screen apparently gets cut out. Nevertheless, all the Android users out there can try their Irish Luck on 5-reels, 4-symbols and 30 paylines, in their quest to win the fixed jackpot of 10 000 coins hiding in the pot of gold. There are extra features too – a Scatter, Gold Pots bonus round, and a gamble feature.
Look & Feel
This game has a typical Irish charm, decorated with cute and childlike features. Graphics are detailed and sharp, and the background music is very lively, in the typical Irish spirit. Not all of the symbols are animated, but that keeps the player more focused on the game. The symbols are of a Celtic kind, with a Celtic Knot, Horseshoe, Harp and Claddagh Ring making an appearance. The high value cards, from 9 to ace, are designed to look like shamrocks, and are, as expected, green in colour.
Game and Winnings
The first thing you see when you open the game is a window letting you choose whether you’ll be playing for fun, or you want some real gains.
As in almost every other slot game, to win prizes you have to match symbols from left to right across the reels, with three symbols match giving away big rewards. In this game sometimes combinations of two symbols work too. The game itself is not complicated at all. You can select the denomination of the coins you are betting from a range from $0.01 to 5.00 putting from 1 to 10 coins per each payline. The line and totals bets are shown after you make this selection, enabling you to keep track of your wagering.
To change your bet, you simply have to click on a button in the bottom corner of the menu bar. To modify the number of paylines, you just have to click on them. Once the player is all set up and ready, he simply has to click on the spin button. Nothing easier, right?
The pretty red head Shamrock Lady is the wild symbol in this game, and it can substitute any other symbol, apart from the pot of gold. 5 ladies appearing on a payline is what every player wants to see, because then he’s in for the jackpot of the whopping 10 000 coins, which in cash terms is $5, 000.
The gold pot plays as a scatter symbol, and the bonus is triggered with two or more of them appearing anywhere along the paylines. If you score three or more of them, however, a leprechaun jumps out of one of the pots and takes you to another screen, with 8 free games which can bring you up to 33 free spins at a 15x multiplier.
There is a Gamble game involved as well, which you can opt for if you are feeling particularly lucky, where the player has a 50/50 chance of doubling his rewards, (or losing them altogether, for that matter) by guessing the colour of a card.
