If “Irish Eyes Are Smiling” you could be in for a bumper haul of coins in Land of Gold, a 5 reel, 576 ways to win, Irish luck themed slot. Powered by Playtech, it comes with a free spins feature and a Golden Coins Bonus that can offer up mighty progressive prizes. Play from between 40p and £80 per spin.
The visuals in Land of Gold have a light hearted feel – look out for plenty of Irish and luck themed objects including harps, horseshoes, four-leaf clovers, rainbows and pots of gold. Stereotypical they may be but they’re pleasantly done, as is the jaunty Irish jig of a soundtrack.
Land of Gold uses the AllWays game engine which instead of using traditional paylines creates winning combinations when the same symbol lands on adjacent reels – the 3x4x4x4x3 set up means a massive 576 ways to win.
The first extra to note is the Stacks of Luck feature – the higher value symbols can appear stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4. If the same 1 lands as stacked on all 3 of the middle reels, you can look forward to a bonus of between 5 and 25 times your stake. This comes in addition to your regular wins.
Land the grinning leprechaun on reels 2, 3 and 4 to trigger the Lucky Spins Free Games feature – spin the wheel to reveal the number of free spins you’ll be awarded and what multiplier will be applied to them. Keep on spinning until you hit the collect. 3 leprechauns landing during the feature will re-trigger the feature and award another 5 extra free spins. There’s no limit to the number of times that these additional free spins can be won.
The other symbol to look out for is the Bonus – when it lands on reels 1 and 5 you’ll activate the Golden Coin Bonus feature and be taken to a new screen – here the leprechaun will bounce on a trampoline style mushroom and attempt to catch flying golden coins. Our little friend keeps on picking until he lands a crown. If he manages to catch a hat-trick of four-leaf clovers, you’ll trigger the jackpot prize!
The features in this medium variance slot are pretty good too, offering a nice variety – we found the free spins to be the most lucrative thanks to the multipliers which can soon get the coins flowing. Throw in the progressive jackpot element and you could really be celebrating if the luck of the Irish is with you. If you like Irish luck themed offerings, IGT’s Shamrockers Eire to Rock is a good alternative.
