Take top the beautiful pastures of the Emerald Isle for this cracking sequel to the Luck of the Irish, here we bring you Luck of the Irish: Fortune Spins. Blueprint Gaming is behind this one, and as we have come to expect from them it captures the theme very well indeed. A rainbow-led treasure hunt through the green rolling hills of Ireland will kick off your evening nicely, with fat pots of gold awaiting you.
Presented over the typical 5 x 3 setup with a modest 10 paylines, this slot has a bit more about than the original did. Buy a ticket to this land of leprechauns for as little as 0.10 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent, up to an eye-watering 600 EUR or equivalent stake. Be aware that all wins pay with adjacent symbols, so if your combination doesn’t start on the furthest reel to the left it’s no biggy.
Somewhere under the rainbow
Looks-wise its sexy. That gorgeous rainbow stretching across blue sky brings lovely colour to the game, along with some fantastic imagery of the country in which it is set. Leprechauns are plenty, and the fortunes are there to be won.
The game’s logo is a ginger Leprechaun, appearing alongside a huge pot of gold coins, but this will only appear during the Fortune Spins round, so don’t expect to see it on the base game. However, you won’t be able to get too down about this, as that massive pot of goodies will make the pain slide away.
With golds coins worth in excess of 500 coins, red rubies worth up to 400 coins, blue sapphires and green emeralds worth up to 300 coins. Lower value symbols include Ace and King symbols worth with up to 200 coins, along with Queen, Jack and 10s worth a more modest 100 coins.
Pay for Fortune Spins
The button for the Fortune Spins sits below the reels and can be used at any time to initiate the feature; there is no need to keep playing waiting for the right combo to fall, a nice touch that can save you a fair amount of time, stress and energy.
Once activated you’ll see four sets of reels appear on the screen, you then be prompted to set your bet amount for the feature, this ranges from 3 EUR to 600 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent. The Luck of the Irish symbol will now be actively transferring icons to the other reels.
The soundtrack is pretty decent, consisting of the typical Irish folk tunes and giving the game a feelgood aural canvas. Reels spin in order, the first through to the fourth in turn. When they have finished their dance, the winning amount is shown. If you get lucky and land a Luck of the Irish special symbol, they will be replicated across the adjacent reels just before a mystery symbol is replaced to bring a huge win for you.
How can you not love Luck Of The Irish: Fortune Spins, like how can you not love the Irish! Fortune Spins replaces a traditional free spins feature for this one, and for some that might be a deal-breaker, but for us, this was not enough to put us off. The fact that you can trigger that Fortune Spins mode so freely sold it to us, and we believe it will to you too.
