Whilst there is plenty of competition in the Irish-themed slots category, Emerald Isle still manages to claim a piece of the spotlight. It's a pretty colourful offering from Cryptologic, with plenty of rainbows and other symbols of good fortune. The game's straightforward design manages to pack in not one but two different bonus features, which helps it to retain its title as a firm favourite.
Emerald Isle has 5 reels, 3 rows and contains 20 different pay lines which all run from left to right. The reels are settled onto a wooden background, with a rainbow filtering through in the distance across an Irish hillside. To place a bet, you'll first have to choose your line stake and then the number of lines that you wish to bet on. This will then determine your total bet per spin. Once you're happy with the amount, hit the spin button.
The symbols will help you on your quest to land a winning payout. The big, blocky poker values are among the slot's lower value symbols. Those linked with good fortune or Ireland will generate a higher payout. In Emerald Isle, these symbols are the four-leaf clover, the red-headed Irish lass and the pot of gold.
The leprechaun may look a little shifty but we swear that he has good intentions. In fact, he covers the game's wild and can replace any symbol except the scatter which is the rainbow. He also triggers his very own bonus round. Land a winning wild combination with the leprechaun on reels 1 and 5 and you'll enter the leprechaun bonus mini game. It's a pick me game with prizes of up to 100x your triggering bet up for grabs !
In addition to triggering its own winning scatter combo, the rainbow will be the key to getting your hands on free spins. Land 3 from left to right and you'll generate 10 extra spins, during which time all wins are tripled!
