Rainbows? Four leaf clovers? Pints of stout? Pots of gold? Yes, with their new slot Emerald Gold, Microgaming have tapped into the familiar but always welcome world of the leprechaun, and you can bet that we’re on board. Play Emerald Gold now
There’s no escaping the fact that this latest slot from developers Just For The Win covers well-trod territory – but that’s not to say there’s something rather distinctive about this take on the famed creature of Irish folklore.
The visuals here aren’t as brash as you often find in a leprechaun-themed game; here there’s a hint of the wistful in the cloudy skies and verdant landscapes forming the backdrop to your adventure into the Emerald isle.
This five-reel, four row slot offers 40 win lines, plus a number of features to make the gameplay that much more compelling. There are Free Spins, of course; if three of the appropriate symbols land on the reels, they’ll award Free Spins.
Scatter Symbols are collected while the Free Spins take place, with a maximum of 12 scatters potentially available – land that maximum amount, and you’ll be awarded a payout of 25,000 x your bet. The Free Spins meter will reset to 3 Free Spins each time a scatter lands on the reels, too.
Back in the base game, if four or more scatters land on the reels you’ll be awarded a cash prize. Again, if the maximum number of 12 scatters lands, that means a 25,000 x bet payout.
With eye-catching artwork and visuals that include lucky horseshoes, emerald rings and gold top hats, plus some jaunty Irish-themed music to accompany the action, we’re quite taken by Emerald Gold.
Even factoring in the wide array of leprechaun—themed slots that already exist, there’s something about this slot that really had us paying attention. The concept couldn’t be simpler – but it works supremely well here.
If you’re looking for a slot celebration of St Patrick’s Day, you can’t go wrong with this tribute to the little fellows with the rainbow fixation. Fancy finding your own pot of Emerald Gold? Not long to wait ’til you can try it for yourself…
