If you were to think of lucky charms, then you would probably associate them with the Irish. Quite often in Irish folklore, there are stories of lucky charms and eternal fortunes. This is why so many slot games have Irish themes, and you never have to look far for a leprechaun-themed slot. As a result, there are literally hundreds on the market with some good and some not so good. We decided to play Slots o' Gold by Blueprint Gaming, and it has everything you would expect of an Irish five-reel slot with plenty of clovers in sight. We think it has potential and all the key info is below.
The interactivity and video animations on this game are absolutely fantastic, and we had a ton of fun playing it. It's bright and colourful, and it's exactly what we like to see in a slot game. Blueprint have done a fantastic job, and even the music is pleasant enough to leave switched on. The gameplay is smooth and fluid, and there is also a couple of bonus features to keep you spinning for hours. It's definitely up there as one of the best Irish-themed slots that we have played. You can bet from as little as 20p so definitely check it out if you fancy a go.
The wild symbol on Slots o' Gold is represented by the humorous leprechaun character who has a cheerful grin and a big nose so you cannot really miss him. He is surrounded by a rainbow, and the word "WILD" is displayed at the top. He substitutes for most other symbols on the reel, and he helps complete line wins thus increasing the chance for the player to pick up wins more frequently. This is the key to a lot of your gameplay, and bigger wins so watch out for him when he appears.
This occurs during the base game and is the main bonus feature. During any spin, if the leprechaun wild lands on reels 2, 3 or 4 then this will trigger and works as a free spin feature that can stack up to 3 re-spins. It is really simple no-nonsense stuff, and we found that it landed quite often. Basically, when one wild lands it can expand and hold in place with any previous wild. This is how it stacks, and once it reaches three, you will receive your 3 re-spins.
Jackpot King Pot:
This is the second bonus feature that occurs and during any spin, there is a chance that the Jackpot King bonus will trigger by landing 5 Jackpot King overlay symbols on any of the reels. If it lands, then you will be presented with a number of options, and you have to select an icon to receive your bonus. The options that will be presented are Spin, Collect and Wheel King and each of these will provide a different bonus. Overall, it works like a tombola-style wheel and is loads of fun. When the game is over, the slot reverts back to the base game.
