Very shortly, revellers everywhere will be embracing the Irish spirit and joining the world famous St. Patrick’s Day festivities. This is one big party that travels way beyond Irish shores, where people down pints of the ‘black stuff’ as publicans hand out of boxes of oversized fluffy white hats.
Celebrations may be tempered somewhat this year due to the current global climate, but that shouldn’t stop you getting you fill of Irish fun on St. Patrick’s Day.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never stepped foot on the Emerald isle or even sampled the delights of its famous black alcoholic concoction. Wildz has prepared a compilation of super fun Irish-themed slots to lead you over the rainbow where pots of gold await the very luckiest.
Finn And The Swirly Spin (NetEnt)
Jump into the mystical world of red-headed leprechaun Finn, where an idyllic blue sky meets an endless rainbow and rolling hills in this quaint and dream-like production.
Supplier NetEnt have saturated Finn And The Swirly Spin with ample bonus features designed to bestow you some luck of the Irish this March. Abundant Free Spins, Wild symbols and base game upgrades are all in the offing, while the game’s innovative symbol cycling engine makes this a must-play for all slot fanatics.
Released in 2017, Finn And The Swirly Spin remains one of the most popular slots of recent years thanks to its mix of unique gameplay, charming look and medium variance - perfect for some casual slot spinning on St. Patrick’s Day and beyond.
Rainbow Ryan (Yggdrasil)
Leprechaun Finn has a St. Patrick’s Day rival and he packs buckets of Irish charm - not to mention iconic John Lennon-esque aviators.
Whether Rainbow Ryan’s apparent Beatles likeness is coincidental or by design, it sure adds a layer of intrigue.
The stage is set for our loveable leprechaun to dish out big wins as he strums away alongside a 6x4 reel layout at some kind of countryside festival. Within just a few spins you too will be toe-tapping along to the heavy backing track that accompanies your play.
At random moments, watch as a maximum of 6 reels sync in time, resulting in identical outcomes to guarantee you a win. There are also 20 Free Spins at stake for catching enough Scatter symbols, which locks in the Rainbow Reels feature throughout the ensuing round.
Irish Gold (Play’n GO)
Play’n GO’s own contribution to the sea of Irish-themed slots is a much more straightforward affair.
Forget about Cascading Reels, Free Spins or symbol upgrades. More at home in a classic pub, Irish Gold sports a rather bare, 3-row, 3-reel reel setup planted somewhere among Ireland’s famous rolling hills.
Traditional Irish motifs like leprechauns and four-leaf clovers depict playing symbols, while a pleasing soundtrack rounds off the scene.
Free Spins fans will be left disappointed, but Play’n GO counterbalance their absence by handing central roles to Wild and Scatter symbols - in addition to offering wins worth 5,000 coins.
There’s not an awful lot going on most of the time in Irish Gold, but the game does provide enough low-key thrills to make your St. Patrick’s Day a fun and fruitful one.
You might not know you’re in deep Irish territory were it not for the thick black pints of stout that adorn the reels alongside far more toxic bright red toadstools. Whichever of these symbols show up, they’re sure to yield some sizeable wins out on the lush Leprechaun Hills.
Free Spins are your ticket to the meatier prizes, triggered by landing 3 Scatters on the reels, with an additional 7 spins up for grabs for each new Scatter that arrives.
Golden Leprechaun Megaways (Red Tiger Gaming)
Red Tiger Gaming bring some high potential MegaWays action to the party with their atmospheric 2019 release.
Graphically, Golden Leprechaun Megaways high definition images represent a radical upgrade on the previous games profiled in this article, drawing players into bucolic Irish woodland where sunrays punctuate through the trees.
The game scores high visually, while also brimming with bonus features to help you on your journey through Golden Leprechaun’s forest.
Central to the gameplay is Big Time Gaming’s acclaimed MegaWays engine that maxes out at 117,649 ways to win at full power, and a top prize worth a head-turning 10,000x your stake.
This engrossing six-reel slot also features Cascading Reels to enhance your win opportunities, plus Free Spins offering infinite Multipliers, Random Wild Stacks and Lucky Ways.
Larry the Leprechaun (Wazdan)
Grab your lucky green hat and embark on a magical Celtic slot adventure in this award-winning slot from one of the industry’s up-and-coming studios.
Larry the Leprechaun is a cluster-based game that pays out for matching clusters of 8 or more symbols. Richer pickings are found behind its trio of bonus rounds, unlocked by collecting sufficient triggering symbols.
Enough gold coins are your route to Leprechaun’s Spins Bonus; the Free Spins Bonus is earned by accumulating silver coins; while magic sacks activate the Magic Sack Bonus.
Wazdan have also bolted on a Gamble feature to help spice things up. Choose the right plant to double your money, or risk losing it all if it goes wrong.
While its overall theme and aesthetics are far from new, this is not your average Leprechaun-heavy slot. The game offers an original take on the genre, wrapping some intricate features and unusual gameplay in impressive visuals.
