Green left and right, that’s the colour you see when you talk about Irish legends, many of them associated with the luck of their protagonists. Venerable or patron saints, such as St. Patrick himself, are part of the traditions of the northern European country, and whose cultural symbols have spread around the world, becoming indivisible icons of Irish folklore and history.
The digital gaming industry, always eager for sources of inspiration for its products, has managed to incorporate the vast majority of the European nation’s iconic figures into the gaming narratives of its machines, resulting in an unrelenting presence in online casinos on every continent.
Irish Pot Luck
The virtual tour of Irish culture kicks off with a NetEnt title, which means a full-colour interface, cartoon-style graphics and, of course, multiple opportunities to generate winnings. Three jackpots identified as Mini, Midi and Mega mark the top end of the slots and, in turn, the maximum aspirations of each user. Technical highlights include bets between S/. 1 and S/. 400, a 5×3 format screen, and special features such as Pot Luck and Jackpot Wheel. The latter activates a wheel of fortune that unlocks prizes such as free spins and win multipliers. Winning combinations add up to 20 options, and the theoretical return amounts to 96.06%.
Irish luck is very much linked to wishes, some of which come true and some not so much. The important thing, however, is to be ready to make them when a little leprechaun in a green suit with a reddish beard comes across your path. In Wishing Wheel, the wish “request process” is simplified as much as possible by giving players the chance to activate the slowly spinning wheel of fortune on the far left of the screen, which awards prizes such as free spins, special bonuses and win multipliers.
Wishing Wheel, a product of the iSoftBet brand, has a theoretical return equal to 96%, 20 winning lines, and bets ranging from S/. 0.80 to S/. 160.
Pragmatic Play signs the technology and the graphic patent of Emerald King, a slot that reinforces the paradigms of the legends associated with Irish luck. Leprechauns, pots full of gold coins, cherries and bunches of grapes appear and disappear on the main game screen, creating combinations that, depending on their position and the number of figures, release unique prizes and bonuses. The machine allows bets of up to S/. 300, and has a potential return equivalent to 96.51%.
