The Craic Slot Machine

The Craic slot is one all about the Irish, featuring leprechauns, Guinness, a harp, potatoes, Mr Potato head in an Irish hat, Bono and even Terry Wogan. The Irish are known for their great sense of humour and this slot does a good job of capturing that humour, especially during the feature rounds.

This slot by 1x2 Gaming is set against a green background (what other colour?) with 4 leaf clovers and stars either side of the slot title. Graphically you wouldn’t say that this was the best slot, some of the symbols being pretty basic, but it’s actually part of the charm of the slot, as it works in a strange way. Alongside the ‘Irish’ symbols are the playing cards from Jack to Ace, these in a Gaelic style set against a woven background. This slot has three distinct features, all activated by scatter symbols – one featuring Bono, one featuring dancing potatoes (I kid you not!) and the other giving you free spins.

Set up and Play for The Craic Slot

This slot is a five reel slot much like the majority of those found online, this particular slot featuring just nine win lines, meaning that you’ll get more spins for your money at this slot. The number of lines in play can be changed from anywhere between 1 and 9, 1 line for example meaning that just the middle row of the reels is a win line. You’ll also set the coin amount and the coin value, the combination of the two giving you your total stake for the spin. Slots can range from pennies and nickels per spin to dollars per win line, so make sure you're playing the right stakes to suit your bankroll. Find out more about slot strategy here.

To win at this slot you’ll need to land either 2 or 3 consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line – the playing card symbols and the Guinness paying out for 3 or more, while all of the others paying for just 2 in a row. The highest paying symbol is the potato, which is worth 1,000x your coin amount when landing 5 in a row, while the horse, the pot of golf, Mr. Potato Head and the harp pay 750x, 500x, 300x and 100x respectively.

According to the pay table, the wild symbol in the slot is Terry Wogan and this will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatters. However, having played the slot for a sizable amount of time, he didn’t appear once on the reels, which is a little strange.

There is an additional ‘breakfast bonus’ available. You’ll receive a 2 coin pay-out if landing a potato and two Guinness symbols on a win line. Potato and Guinness for breakfast? Only in Ireland!

There are three separated feature rounds, all activated by different scatter symbols. The first is the free spins round, which is started by landing 3 or more ‘free spins’ symbols on a win line. The ‘Breaking Bono’s Round’ is started when landing the Bono symbol 4 or more times across any of the reels. The final feature is the ‘Dancing Potato Round’ activated by landing 4 or more of the leprechaun symbols.

The Craic Slot – Features

During the free spins round you’ll gain either 5, 10 or 15 free spins depending on whether you landed 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols to start the round. There is no multiplier during the free spins, although with two other features, this is no surprise.

The Breaking Bono round sees a blind leprechaun wandering around in front of four framed pictures of Bono. The leprechaun waves his stick around and breaks the glass of each picture in turn, each revealing either a cash prize or nothing. This is fun, surreal round, although not quite as surreal as the final feature.

The Dancing Potato feature sees a number of dressed up potatoes all doing the river dance. You’ll click on each one to hopefully reveal a prize. Yes, you did read it right – potatoes doing the river dance.

The Craic Slot Conclusion

1x2 has to be given a lot of credit for producing one of the most fun, original slots online. It would be fair to say that whoever came up with the idea has a lot of imagination – not everyone could come up with an idea to put a blind leprechaun smashing pictures with his stick, or a bunch of potatoes doing formation dancing into a slot. No, the slot hasn’t got amazing, smooth graphics or a large Jackpot prize, but you have to play this slot, otherwise you are missing out.
