Leprechauns, rainbows and pots of gold may well be the stuff of myths and legends, but what if I told you they could all be about to come true! Because that's exactly what could happen in Irish Riches – a slot game from 888 that could have you Irish jigging your way to a jackpot beyond your wildest dreams.
The first thing that jumps out at you when you're facing the 5 reels and 15 pay-lines of this jackpot slot is the rosy-cheeked leprechaun to the left of the reels. He's sat in a very large pot of gold which is the game's Progressive Jackpot Metre which is well worth checking out!
You can always turn the music off if you want to, but I was happy dancing my way through my spins which are played out on transparent reels that offer some serious graphics to enjoy – and prizes.
Prize symbols include plenty of things that leprechauns love including the big hats they wear, harps to play their jiggy music on, pipes to smoke their days away on, and tankards of beer (ah – that's where those rosy cheeks came from). There's also the typical lower-value poker symbols to keep the bank balance ticking over whilst you're waiting for those bigger wins. However the top symbol pay-out is for 5 Golden Horseshoes at 1,500 coins.
Of course there's Wild, Scatter and Bonus Symbols too, and these are Wild Rainbows, Scattered Leprechauns and the Crock of Gold Bonus Symbol. The Wild rainbows can substitute for all symbols except the Scatter and Bonus, and will do so when a substitution can create a winning line. Meanwhile, both the Leprechaun and Crock of Golf can trigger bonus games.
You can start really making a hole in the Leprechaun's loot when you see 3 or more of the Wild Rainbows anywhere on the reels, and the more Rainbows you see the more Free Spins you'll be awarded. The leprechaun will also be kind enough to add wilds to the reels during your free spins, and these swap positions every few spins just to keep you on your toes.
Meanwhile, 3 or more Crocks of Gold Scatter Symbols in view anywhere on the reels will trigger a pick-me bonus in which you'll receive two picks. The first will be a cash prize, and the second a multiplier. Multiplying them together for your total win!
The huge jackpot mentioned at the beginning does not require any sort of winning combination or skill-based trigger, and will simply be awarded randomly to a seriously lucky player.
Players can also enjoy a range of spin-stakes and auto-play options, whilst this modern slot can be enjoyed whilst playing on a range of devices including smartphones and android tablets.
Leprechaun and Irish themed Slots have been popular for a long time now with almost countless games found at online casinos. However, it is the big Progressive Jackpot that sets this version apart from the rest– and it means the legend of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is about to come true for one lucky slot player!
