Take a trip to the grassy plains of Ireland, hang out with the leprechauns, and try to find that big pot of gold. Not that unique of a theme, but Red Rake Gaming managed to keep their 1st of the Irish slot quite fresh, and enriched with some great features. The game itself has the cascade style of play and offers us 6 reels, 5 rows, and instead of paylines offers, a Cluster Pays system.
The theme itself is quite often on the market nowadays, but a whole variety of interesting features are what make this game unique and exciting. The cascade style of play offers us great fun all by itself. The winning combinations are disappearing from the screen, and are replaced by new symbols providing a chance for a new winning combination to occur.
The background of the game is quite pleasing to the eye, as it represents almost magical fields covered with beautiful green grass, filled with shamrocks. The entire look of the game seems like it is been touched by leprechauns magic. The soundtrack is not so authentic to the theme, but it will surely hype you up with every winning combination.
There are a whole bunch of classic Irish themed symbols, and there are of course two types of them. The low paid symbols are represented by a pipe, beer, shamrock, hat, and rainbow. There are also the high paid symbols which have also kept the Irish style and are represented by the harp, lucky horseshoe, and the most valuable of them all the pot of gold. If you manage to fill the reels with the pot symbol, it will provide you a win of 500 times the stake.
The game’s RTP is at 95.40% which is not that high, but still, if the right features are triggered you shouldn't need to worry. The maximum payout is set at 5000 times the stake, which is very tempting. The betting range is not so wide, but surely has something to offer to the players who like to bet on the safer side. The minimum bet is set at 0.08 coins per spin, and the maximum at 20 coins per spin.
When it comes to the features, the provider really stood up and made a couple of pretty nice and unique features. On the side of the screen, you can see all low paid symbols, and around them is the filling meter, which is activated every time you get a winning combination. While the clusters are falling, and other winning combinations are taking place your meters will fill, and when they are filled up they will provide you some nice rewards.
First to mention is the pipe meter. When it is filled it will provide you a symbol and a multiplier for that symbol. Your wins are multiplied with the number of times that symbol appears on the reels.
There is also a beer symbol meter, and when it is filled, it will create giant 3x3 block symbols randomly chosen anywhere on the reels, and hopefully provide you some decent wins.
The shamrock meter will provide up to 3 sticky wilds that will stay on the reels until they form three winning combinations for you.
The hat meter will bring you up to 10 wilds stacked on one reel, only a few of them will be visible. The others will appear on the reels by forming some winning combinations and cascading down the symbols.
The last but maybe the most rewarding of them all is the rainbow meter. This meter, when filled up, will provide you with 12 free spins in total. During the Free Spins feature, the rainbow meter won't reset after every spin, and it will continue to fill continuously till the end of free spins. Every time the rainbow meter fills it will raise your multiplier by one for the next win.
