On St. Patrick's Day Rival Gaming has gifted its players an Irish themed online slot game called Shamrock Isle. As is the case with all Rival Gaming video slots, Shamrock Isle begins with an animated clip. A leprechaun is getting ready for some mischief. The video clip is set within a bright green emerald, which is appropriate because Emerald Isle is another name for Ireland. As the leprechaun reaches the glade which forms the background to the reels there is a shower of gold. One interesting feature of this new slot game is that the backgrounds of the symbols are transparent and therefore when the reels spin the entire green glade becomes visible.
Preview of Shamrock Isle Online Casino Video Slot Game:
The leprechaun is the wild symbol and offers the highest fixed jackpot of 5000 coins. It also doubles the payouts. During the free spins round the leprechaun symbol appears only on the first three reels, but appears as expanding wilds and results in super payouts. The other symbols also have an Irish flavor. These include the crown, pot of gold, harp, shamrock and unicom. The high value card symbols are ornately crafted in green and gold, which are the colors of the leprechaun. When symbols appear in winning combinations a green shamrock border appears around them.
The harp symbol triggers the free spins bonus round. Three harp symbols offer 10 free spins, four harp symbols offer 20 free spins and five harp symbols offer a whopping 125 free spins. The payouts are tripled during the free spins. The pot of gold symbol triggers the bonus game on the second screen. Shamrock Isle offers players a choice from three games. The most exciting of these appears to be Coin Grab. Gold coins fall from the sky and players have to grab them and put them in the wallet. Each gold coin collected offers bonus credits. But they have to do so before the leprechaun can. Beating a leprechaun in grabbing a gold coin is immensely pleasurable. The other two bonus games are Road Bowl and Skittles. In Road Bowl players have to aim at flags and get bonus credits depending on how many they hit. In Skittles players throw pins at skittles and get bonus credits depending on how many pins stick.
Shamrock Isle is the first Irish themed slot game from Rival Gaming. It has 20 paylines and allows players to wager up to 10 coins per payline. The coin size ranges from $0.01 to $0.25. Shamrock Isle has gone live at all Rival Gaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Ruby Royal Casino and Sloto' Cash Casino.
