Ireland is a melting pot of folklore and superstition. If the country had a mascot, it would surely be the Leprechaun, but the flower that Ireland is best known for is the shamrock. Little wonder this slot makes use of both those icons and creates an excellent pun in the same instant. Shamrock ‘N Roll isn't just puntastic, though. It is a competent mobile slot that has remained a staple in our gaming library here at GoWin for some time now. But does it give you the luck of the Irish or leave you searching for another pot of gold? Read on to find out our thoughts on Shamrock ‘N Roll in a full, in-depth review.
Nektan Gaming has done it again with this game. With similar mechanics to Best of British, this slot is a 5 x 3 reel with 15 paylines with a minimum bet of 15p. The topic bet you can make is up to £25, which is a little lower than average, but nevertheless effective.
With an RTP of 96.3%, this allows players to have a fairly consistent bank balance as they spin the reel. This is a very average RTP. Nothing high, nothing low, nothing exciting, nothing disappointing. Get the higher value systems to increase you win.
This game is simple and strong which is a good thing because too many bonuses can lead to upsetting consequences for the player. But what about the features that are present?
First of all are the extra spins. Collect three arrow symbols in order to win these on any payline. As you're probably aware, we think re-spins are essential for any game as it helps the player win more often and make them come back for more. And since these symbols appear quite often, that means that winning is even more likely. There does not appear to be a limit on these extra spins except a minimum of 15 so you can gain as much as you like, so long as you keep getting the arrow symbols.
Next are the Shamrock Wild Symbols, which help stand in for other symbols on the reel and help you earn a win faster. These usually take the form of a leprechaun and appear quite often. However, these are where the features stop and it's rather disappointing.
The developers have done a good job on Shamrock ‘N Roll in terms of software and animation. The performance of the game is incredibly smooth with graphics that simple and cartoonish, but also charming. The background music fits the theme and makes some pretty good background noise when you're spinning the reel. However, before the game starts, you are always given the choice to keep the sound on or off. This game can be played on all platforms including iOS, Android and PC.
The best thing that Shamrock ‘N Roll has to offer is its dedication to its theme. The Irish paraphernalia rubs off on you, making you feel as though you truly do have the luck of the Irish. The fact that some of the symbols are horseshoes or pots of gold doubles this feeling tenfold. The extra spins are also pretty cool. They make you want to play the game for longer. We played this game for a whole hour and in that time we didn't find ourselves getting bored.
Overall, we think the makes of Shamrock ‘N Roll have done a great job. The theme is charming and infectious, the ‘playability' is of a high standard as well as the graphics being some the best we've ever seen. We would like a few more features in the main game aside from the extra spins and the special symbols. However, the game is so simple and fun we can't fault it too much on that.
