Blueprint Gaming is another developer to hop across the water for a video slot based on the Emerald Isle. Irish Frenzy is a 5 reel, 10 payline game that comes with all the usual design clichés but a potentially exciting free spins round where a leprechaun wild can collect treasure chests which can be worth up to 50 times your bet apiece. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 10p and £100 per spin.
Irish Frenzy is just how you’d imagine a video slot with this theme to look. The visuals are done cartoon style. Joining the A to 10 symbols are shamrocks, toadstools and glasses of stout. The gold harp is the most lucrative symbol. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these on 1 of the game’s 10 paylines and you’ll receive an award of 0.5, 5, 20 or 200 times your bet.
You’ll also see chests full of coins spinning around. These pay 1, 5 or 20 times your bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels. The other scatter style symbol is the rainbow pot. These trigger the game’s Free Games feature – 10, 15 or 20 free spins are on offer if you land 3, 4 or 5 on the same spin. Look out here for the cheeky leprechaun wild. As well as replacing all the standard symbols, it delivers payouts of 1, 10, 50 or 500 coins if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination.
The treasure chests are in play during the free spins too. They each come with a cash value of 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 50 times your bet attached. If the leprechaun lands, he collects all of the values from the treasure chests that also land on that free spin. These are then awarded at the end of the feature
You’ll also have the option to buy the Free Games feature if you wish. Just click on the Free Spins Frenzy tab. This also shows how much it will set you back to activate the round – 70 times your bet.
There’s nothing very complex about Irish Frenzy. The cartoon imagery is decent enough and the base game backing track sounds like an old school live casino video slot. The shouts from the leprechaun had us reaching for the mute button though.
The gameplay is equally straightforward. The Free Games feature offers some decent action though. The variance is in the medium to high range. You won’t find any surprises here.
