I love a touch of Irish charm as much as the next wombat, and Inspired Gaming’s Shamrock Lock slot had my blood racing with the prospect of a touch of magic and a pint of the black stuff. There’s also the Book of the Irish slot from the same games developers if you love slots from the Emerald Isle!
This Irish jig of slot, comes bearing a trio of gifts including Wonder Spins, Lock, and some handy Mystery symbols. Innovatively, the Lock n’ Roll mode is a paid for extra where you can boost your wager for greater chances to score a big win.
Look and Feel
There’s no shortage of games inspired by the Emerald Isle, let’s face it. So would this offering from the makers of the 20p Slot and Atlantis: City of Destiny have me dancing a jig with a fiddle in my hand?There are no surprises on the design front: the reels are set against an emerald green and the symbols are crafted out of ornate Celtic gold.
Even less of a shock is that you’ll be gaming with a spring in your step thanks to some Irish jig music which adds a few sprightly steps to the game. Maybe I should go and get my fiddle! It’s certainly sunny uplands on this game compared to our Vlad’s Castle slot machine and other darker games we have on the site. If you are in a bright and breezy mood, it could be just the ticket.
Shamrock Lock has 10 pay-lines that are up for grabs over 3 rows and 5 reels. That’s half as many as the Centurion slot machine which is another classic from Inspired Gaming, which should give you an idea of how this game plays. The golden logo is the biggest paying symbol in this Irish charmer. You cash-in to the tune of 500 coins when you land five of them s on an active pay-line.
Then there’s everyone’s fave icon; the lucky number 7 up next, followed by a leprechaun’s pot of gold (of course!), a horseshoe, a Leprechaun’s hat and a pair of toadstools.
A swanky golden Shamrock of the game’s title is the game’s Wild but this win-making icon only shows up on reel 3.
Unlock your inner Fergus by landing a trio of Wilds on the central reel- these freeze in place which helps with the wins for sure. Over two free spins you have the chance to drop some combinations ins. During your first free game, Wilds can surprisingly pop up on reels 2 and 4 to freeze in place. If you don’t come up trumps on the first spin, don’t despair, as on the second free game those lovely Wilds can turn up on any of the reels.
Lock n’ Roll
Take your chances by increasing your wager by x 1.5 and try to reap the rewards in the catchily named Lock n’ Roll feature.When you’ve triggered this mode you’ll discover that between 2 and 5 reels will become covered in matching icons and “Lock” together to help you complete some symbol combinations. Say Hello to some wins!
Because everyone loves a winner, a mystery symbol can land on the reels and transform into another regular symbol. This magical helper will also help your chances of a win.
Join the high stepping jig on the reels and play the Shamrock Lock slot with its “muther” load of bonus extras. The Lock n’ Roll feature where you pay to play with higher chances is a smart bit of tech. And, my happy place is certainly a big ol’ free spins game with Locking Wilds.
Let’s hope that Irish eyes are smiling for you on this medium variance slot as much as they were for this wombat.
