Most modern video slots are themed, and this allows players to have some idea of what to expect from the best online roulette games. A good example of this is book-based slots, these tend to follow certain rules where the book of the slot title itself acts as the wild and the bonus trigger symbol.
Irish-themed slots are mostly based on Irish folklore and the stars here are Irish icons such as Leprechauns and Lucky Clovers. This folklore iconography transfers well when utilized by the creativity of slot game produces and because of this, Irish-themed slots have taken off. Here is a quick rundown of some of the best Irish-themed slots to play.
The game that kicked off the Irish-themed slot craze is Rainbow Riches. It is hard to believe that it was released back in 2009 and this is because it is still present in most online casinos even today. It was and still is the flagship game of slot developer Barcrest. It comes with 20 pay lines 5 reels and 3 rows. Even though the RTP is only 95%, gamblers are still willing to give this popular slot a spin. You can win 500x your stake and there are 3 bonus games to play, but no free spins are included. Instead, 3 or more Leprechaun symbols trigger the Road to Riches bonus round. Three Wishing Well symbols trigger the Wishing Wheel bonus and the most lucrative is the Pots of Gold feature.
Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix
Like with most successful slot games, spin-offs are inevitable, and Rainbow Riches has produced some decent follow-up slots. One of the most memorable is Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix, as the title suggests, you can pick and mix the bonus features you would like to activate on the reels, and these include the Road to Riches and Pots of Gold from the original. Added to the mix here is a Fee Spins option and these can be retriggered. The Free Spins symbol also acts as a wild symbol during the free spins. There is also a Cash Crop bonus feature with a Streak Respin round and a Magic Toadstool bonus.
9 Pots of Gold
Away from Rainbow Riches, 9 Pots of Gold is one of the newer Irish-themed slot releases. This joint effort from Microgaming and Gameburger Studios plays once again on the themes associated with the Emerald Isles. The luck of the Irish and the pots of the title feature heavily here. 4-leaf Clovers, Leprechaun Hats and Gold Harps fill the reels, but it is the Pots that are the stars. If you land the maximum of 9 Pots of Gold this pays out 2000x your original stake. The Free Spins symbols trigger the free spins bonus round and 3 are needed on the reels. This allows you to spin the Free Spin Wheel and this determines the number of free spins you win; the minimum is 10 and the maximum is 30.
