Where are the two most likely places on earth to find a pot of gold – under a rainbow hidden by a Leprechaun and in a Las Vegas casino. In Irish Gold Playn’ Go Gaming has welded the two together with a Celtic theme tied to a classic Vegas slot.
This mobile slots game plays out on three reels with five paylines. There are no free games and no multipliers. There is no progressive jackpot – this is just a chase for five static jackpots at the end of each win line.
If you lay the history of slot machines across a timeline of Irish history Irish Gold would fall a lot closer to the potato famine of the 1840s than the Pogues of the 1980s. It is not quite the simplest of the classic old-time Las Vegas slots but it is close. The Celtic theme is stripped down to its most essential – the only symbols are bar combinations, a cackling Leprechaun, Shamrocks and Pots of Gold. The setting is an Irish spring day with blue skies and a vibrant rainbow arching through the puffy white clouds – let’s play some slots!
The Shamrock is the Scatter and it pays double for a pair and 25X when it shows up on all three reels. And that is it for learning anything more than the pay table.
The Pot of Gold is Wild and it pays 5X your stake if it helps build a winning combination. It is a very practical cast iron pot by the way – certainly heavy enough to hold quite a few gold coins. When two Pot of Gold icons score a win the return is 25X the payline stakes.
When Pot of Gold symbols fill a win line the jackpot is yours, but the actual amount depends on which of the five paylines you score on – anywhere from 2500X the coins staked per line to 5000X your bet which can be as hefty as 25,000 coins. Irish gold is simplicity itself.
