Lucky Shamrock Slot Machine

If we had to highlight one prevalent theme upon which the overwhelming majority of gambling formats – and not just slots, pokies, bandits of whatever it is you like to call them – are based, it would be the infamous ‘luck of the Irish’.

As something which has quite frankly refused to die over the course of the last couple of centuries, the myth of the luck of the Irish has grown to inhabit so many different areas of culture that its almost incalculable to suggest just what may come next.

Slots are no exception to this rule, with hundreds, if not thousands, of games released over the course of the past few years alone based upon this theme. Whether centred upon leprechauns, four leaf clovers, rainbows, pots of gold – whatever; the overriding theme of the lucky Irish has enjoyed (or rather endured) an age-old relationship with gambling for whatever reason.

Considering all of this, we can’t really help but greet all new releases which conform to this relationship with a slight degree of trepidation. So, when details of ‘Lucky Shamrock’ landed on our desks some while back, it would be fair to say that we weren’t overly excited by the idea of another game which takes its theme from this oversaturated pot.

Luck of the Irish?

As an online slot, there’s no question at all that Lucky Shamrock is far from being alone as a slot in this vast market which offers players the chance to wager in an environment of lucky Irish symbols. In fact, it’s probably one of the most overused, unoriginal and tiresome themes out there. However, there’s a reason it gets employed by developers so much – it’s insanely popular with the punters among us!

As far as the game’s mechanics and dynamics go, what we have here is a very responsive game which does well to offer a good level of accessibility alongside some of those mystical feelings of the unknown that so many enjoy. It must be said that for as unoriginal as the theme and graphics are side by side, the game’s interface is great and offers a heightened user experience as a result of its speed and responsiveness.

Packed to the brim with typical images representative of good old fashioned good fortune, we see a golden horseshoe, a rainbow and a four leafed clover among many others – which you can probably predict the nature of!

Symbols and Payouts

The game’s symbols are all of course themed around Irish lucky charms. The highest paying of them all is the Red Ruby, which will offer players up to a 50,000 coin reward in the event they land 5 across all reels and are staking the games max bet.

Furthermore, the Door symbol will pay out up to 3,500 (a sizeable decrease we thought), next is the Green Hat which will grant 2,250 for five across active reels at max bet and further down the line we have the Silver Coin (1,750), the Golden Horseshoe (1,000) the Beer Tankard (625), the Lantern, Pipe and Clover – all of which pay anywhere between 375 to 500. So certainly a lot of range, making for a very engaging gaming experience and one that is far more likely to prove lucrative than any other this scale available at present.

The Rest

The Pot of Gold is the game’s wild symbol, which will act in the same way as any other in order to replace all other symbols aside from the scatter. The scatter (Rainbow) will payout as many as 5,000 coins for 5 symbols at maximum bet. In the event that you hit 3 scatters across the active reels then you’ll unlock the bonus free games round – topped off with an awesome expanding wilds feature.

The Result

Were it not for the insanely tedious theme of this game, it would probably be a real goer. That being said, we feel we’ve accurately depicted the array of interesting and potentially high-paying features on offer here.

Were we not such experienced hands in this business, our cynicism towards the overused theme would probably be far less obvious! In all fairness, this game does perform well and is likely to prove a hit with many as a result.
