Everyone knows about the luck of the Irish. They’ve got pots of gold, lucky leprechauns and those fabulous four leaf clovers. Well the chaps over at WGS have kindly decided to share out their good fortune in the form of the Lucky Irish slots game.
The original style matrix with 3 reels and just one payline through the middle is the most classic of all slots. We love the uncomplicated basic format, where wins are easy to recognise and there’s no room for confusion. Despite being an online video slot, it even looks like one of the old fruities you can still find down the pub. The metal box outline, with pull lever and play buttons at the bottom all work together to give a sense of familiarity and set the perfect vintage vibe. In the background punters can see a casino environmental, which serves well to engross you entirely and make you feel like you’re right there in the Vegas bright lights.
The use of 3d graphics to immerse players into a new dimension is something we’re seeing more and more of recently and is definitely a sign of a good video slot experience. This game manages to use modern technology to create retro graphics and as a result, perfectly encapsulates the future of online gambling.
Rewards for this game are straightforward too. They simply depend just on the symbols shown and the size of the bet placed. For each go you can bet up to 3 coins per spin, whilst a command button sign lets you decide on the specific coin value. Symbols for Lucky Irish are exactly what you would expect. They include both traditional and themed signs like the four leaf clover, bar signs, lucky numbers, pints of beer and pots of gold.
To win you just need to match any of the symbols in each reel. Whilst any 3 identical symbols in a line will give you a winning combination, it is matching pots of gold that any punters should hope for. Lining up 3 of these gives a massive a 2,400 times a bet placed, which is one of the most rewarding we’ve seen on this style of game in a long time. Another feature we really rate is the interchangeable symbols. Waiting for all 3 to match is rewarding in the end but can require a lot of patience. To keep things sweet some symbols like the lucky four leaf Clover can be matched with others to still be classed as a winning combination and give out a much smaller prize. Bonus symbols are also included and can be clicked on to reveal additional cash rewards that help feed your rolling credit.
There’s been thousands of Irish themed online slot games released over the years with every developer capitalising on the distinctive style. Yet despite this, Lucky Irish is one of our favourites. It’s back to basics format does a great job of not adding to the pile of video slots we’ve seen before and manages to still be original.
