One of the most popular themes in iGaming is Irish. You will see many games based on the Emerald Isle, with Finn and the Swirly Spin being a more recent example. It seems slot fans in New Zealand can’t get enough of it though, as developers Eyecon has turned to the Irish theme again here. But with so many other titles using it, does Irish Luck Jackpot hit the mark?
Before you try it out though, players in New Zealand may be wondering who Eyecon are. While not a massive name as yet in the online casino sector, this Australian provider have actually been building up a strong reputation since the late 1990s/early 2000s. As well as an office in Brisbane, Eyecon also has one in the UK too. Although they are mainly known for slots like Fluffy Favourites, they also produce online bingo and scratchcard games.
There is no denying that this is a charming slot which uses its Irish theme to great effect. The light-hearted feel is perfect for the game’s storyline and it really is fun to play as a result. The game background of green hills and rainbows might not be too original but does help immerse players in the action. In terms of graphics, it goes for a cartoon feel. While this might not be the most cutting-edge, the visuals are still nicely done. This slot has a 5 reel, 25 payline design and the base game sees you trying to match up winning combos on the same line. The fun-factor is ramped up even more in the base game due to symbols such as pints of stout, toadstools and castles. The top paying symbol is the Gold Laden Tree which can net you 1000 times your stake for 5 on one line. The games Wild is the 4 Leaf Clover and can help players form more winning combinations. This is a medium volatility slot which offers average winning potential in conjunction with the RTP of 95%.
You couldn’t create an Irish themed slot without leprechauns, and Eyecon do not disappoint here! Land 3 or over of this symbol in the base game and up to 50 times your stake is awarded. Players will also see the Prize Pick round triggered. When this happens, you are taken to a mini-game where you have to pick from the Tree Stump symbols on-screen. If you pick one with a fairy behind it, a prize of up to 100 times your initial stake is awarded. If you pick one with a leprechaun there, you get 10 Free Spins and a 2 times multiplier on all wins. Eyecon have also included a Match & Win bonus to enjoy. This is activated when 3 or over Fairy Scatter symbols appear. This takes you into another mini-game as well as giving an instant cash prize of up to 50 times your stake. The mini-game sees players pick from a selection of 4 Leaf Clovers with different multipliers behind them. The best bonus for many players though will be the chance to win the game’s jackpot. This happens when players spell out the word ‘IRISH’ on-screen as they spin. If you are lucky enough to do this, you could be set to net the game’s maximum jackpot of 3,000 coins.
While the simple cartoony graphics and fairly generic soundtrack might not wow, this is a game which does inject new life into the Irish theme. This is mainly down to the jackpot and bonuses on offer which helps to make it stand out. If you fancy trying Irish Luck Jackpot today, signing up with casinoNZ.com is simple and fast.
