The wombat says: Strewth, Wombat Fans! Would you believe it’s another Irish-themed slot? You lot just can’t get enough of spinning them can you? Which is why games developers like NextGen (the people behind the Robin Hood Prince of Tweets slot) just keep on churning them out.
Still, Emerald Isle slot looks a bit different from the rest; in fact we might go as far to say that it’s quite tasteful. The reels are set on a backdrop of some misty green Irish countryside overlooking a lovely lake, and there’s some nice peaceful piped music playing as the soundtrack too, and not an Irish jig in sight! OK, so we know that the game is easy on the eyes, but how does it play? Let’s hope we’ll have the luck of the Irish as we spin to win…
Emerald Isle slot has 5 reels with 3 rows and 20 pay-lines- double the likes of the Starmania slot (also by NextGen). Your symbols on the reels include the usual playing cards icons, 9, 10, J, Q, K & A (all given Celtic-style treatment) as your lower value symbols and a whole host of Irish related cliches that make up the icons that will pay you out the most moolah. They include: a four-leafed clover, a pot of gold overflowing with coins, and a ravishing red-haired girl sporting a headband. Thankfully this lovely lass is nice to look at, unlike her counterpart in Irish Eyes slot, who resembles Katie Price circa 2001.
There’s magic on that isle, and it’s not the same kind as you get in the Unicorn Legend slot. This magic involves a wee fella with a ginger hipster beard and a green hat.
The Scatter symbol in Emerald Isle slot is the magical rainbow, while the Wild is a rather serious-looking leprechaun with a slightly sinister wink who will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels to help you scoop winning combos. But, he will also trigger off his very own bonus round! More on that below…
Lucky Leprechaun Bonus
Land the lucky Leprechaun in his big green hat on the first and fifth reels and you’ll set off a nice little pick ’em bonus. Find 2x matching symbols from of a screen full of treasure chests to reveal some potential cash prizes and multipliers. Once you’ve found two of the same value the game will end and your winnings will be added to your coffers. We like this bonus and found that it landed quite frequently.
Emerald Isle Free Spins
If you get 3x or more of the bright Rainbow Scatter symbols on your reels from left to right, you’ll set off the Free Spins round, and 10 of these dizzy little numbers will be yours. During this Free Spins bonus, all your wins will be tripled thanks to a x3 multiplier, and there’s more good news! The the bonus will be re-triggered if you get 3x more rainbow Scatters as you play.
The nice graphics and relaxing soundtrack, plus the Lucky Leprechaun Bonus Game that is triggered quite often all add up to make Emerald Isle a pretty playable slot. Overall if you are a fan of an Irish-themed game, this will float your boat. Good luck and may you find your pot o’ gold!
