The Wombat says: Loved NextGen’s original Irish Eyes slot game? Well then, why not try its even luckier leprechaun sequel, Irish Eyes 2? The theme again is of course, the ‘luck of the Irish’, but this time your spins will take place in a forest with some nice trees and fluttering butterflies, instead of a rainbow-filled field somewhere south of Limerick. There’s also the Lucky Leprechaun slot if you really want to fill yer boots with emeralds.
Other differences between the 2 games include; a maximum of 20 Free Spins on offer in Irish Eyes 2, instead of 12 in the original slot, plus the lovely redhead lass who’s had an upgrade too – she looks less like a ginger Katie Price nowadays, and more like titian-haired Hollywood hottie Jessica Chastian. Oooh, those eyes will burn through you, which makes me think of the Blazing Goddess slot– another one of our games.
And then there’s the music. We love the new and improved Irish folk-flute jigs that accompany your spins, and the birdsong that twitters away merrily when the game lies dormant. But best of all? When you get wink from that saucy redhead, as it signals you’ve scooped a win!
Irish Eyes 2 Slot Game Play
Irish Eyes 2 has 5 reels and 25 paylines. There are 4 more Irish-related cliches that act as your high-value symbols in the sequel – a bright green shamrock, a smoky leprechaun’s pipe, a green leprechaun’s hat and a gold heart shaped ring. As always in NextGen games, the lower value symbols are made up of the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. The golden heart-shaped rings are worth the most on the reels, earning you up to 1,500 coins for 5 of a kind.
The redhead acts as your Wild this time round, substituting for all other symbols except for the Scatter. She’ll also pay you out a HUGE 5000x your bet if you land 5 of the green-eyed beauties on a payline.
Scatters and Spins
The super-shiny Pot Of Gold is your Scatter symbol here, and will trigger the Free Spins feature if either 3x, 4x, or 5x of these lucky beauties appear. You’ll win 10 extra turns for 3 Scatters, 15 spins for 4 Scatters, and 20 Free Spins for 5 Scatters. Plus, all your wins in this bonus round will get a 3x multiplier, and the Free Spins can be re-triggered if you bag another 3 Pot of Gold Scatters. Well now, isn’t that just grand?
If you’re really feeling lucky after a winning spin, then press the ‘gamble’ button to double or quadruple your loot. Pick between red and black, or guess the correct suit of the face-down playing card, and you’ll add to your jackpot. Guess wrong, and you’ll lose the whole lot… There’s a limit here of five correct answers in a row.
Irish Eyes 2 on Mobile and Tablet
This wombat thinks Irish Eyes 2 slot is best played on an iPad or Android tablet for the full Emerald Isle experience. The slot didn’t fare too well on our smartphone…
Irish Eyes 2 is an improvement on the fairly basic first game, but it still needs a few more features to give it legendary slot status. And we do miss the Pick and Win Leprechaun Bonus from the original. We’re looking forward to Irish Eyes 3!
Wombat score: 3/5
This game is not available to UK players. Sorry about that chaps!
Why not try Jack In A Pot slot from Red Tiger Gaming instead?
