Wombat Towers is set in a pretty hot place my friends, and I while I do love the beach, one glance at the rolling lush greenery in the Book of the Irish slot from Inspired Gaming had me lusting for a cool breeze and a some high stepping dance moves. This game feels a little bit different to more traditional Irish games like the Pots of Luck slot machine – it’s an altogether slicker affair.
What can the Irish genre offer you this time slot fans? How about a free spins game, expanding symbols and a gamble feature where, if you’ve kissed the Blarney Stone, you could just double your cash.
Look and Feel
Wildflowers and a grassy landscape populate the reels: it’s all very green in the Emerald Isle! At first I thought we were for in for something on the literary front, or at least with a few spell books thrown in like the Great Book of Magic slot, but the theme on this game is 100% green.
This verdant world was just the break from the norm that this marsupial needed. The reels are set in Celtic stone, and as far as the eye can see there are rolling hills- a perfect spot for an impromptu barbeque if the rain hold off I’d say.
Book of the Irish Game Play
You’ll be flexing your toes to get busy with the Irish vibes over 3 rows, 5 reels and 10 pay-lines. If you want ways too win head to the Juicy Ninja slot machine as we are going traditional on this little Irish number.
A win in this game can be triggered by two to five matching icons, and the game pays left to right like most slots.
The high hitting symbol is a Leprechaun tipping his top hat (with a very cheeky grin). Land five of this magical little fella and expect a nice little 500x your wager windfall.
There’s also a whacking great pot of gold, the Leprechaun’s shoe, and a toadstool on the reels too. Yep, we’re in Ireland alright!
The Ace through 10 of the card deck in decorative swirling letters are the lower value icons.
The all-powerful Wild which is also the Scatter is the Book of the Irish, an old page turner with an emerald on the cover. No, this isn’t Ulysses by James Joyce or even The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde but it does come with some handy powers: this book subs for all icons except the Expanding Symbol in the free spins feature.
Three or more of the Wilds on the reels will unleash the free spins game.
Three activating Wilds will boost your gaming with ten free games and an x2 multiplier. Top of the morning to you too!
Four Wilds will award you with the same ten free games but subject to an x50 your wager. Steady there mates!
Five Wilds will have you going more than Wild with ten freebie games. Plus you’re in mode wins which comes with a whacking great x250 your wager win potential. Holy Blarney Stone, who knew the Irish were such high rollers?
If you’ve discovered your Irish luck then you’ll be in with a good shout of triggering the Free Spins game where you’ll get a nice peek into the famed Book of the Irish. At random, one of the game’s standard icons will be chosen to transform into an Expanding Symbol for the feature. Nice!
After a spin, once any line wins have been handed out, the Expanding Symbol expands to make a win if there are enough on all of the lines.
Make a win of at least x5 your wager and you have the chance to gamble. You’re faced with two wheels, the left-hand one can increase your win by a third, or you can double or even triple your winnings, while the right-hand reel awards you free games to get stuck into. Spin the wheels to find out if you’re blessed with the luck of the Irish.
There’s even a Spin Chance option if your pot of gold runs too low for a spin, but still want to play a game.
If you love a touch of the Irish and some sharp graphics, plus the chance of scooping a 250x your wager win and free spins with expanding symbols, we’d advise you to slip on your lucky green underpants to try and get your bank roll dancing a gig of joy.
