A leprechaun rock band take centre stage in Shamrockers: Eire to Rock, a strange, Irish luck / music hybrid from IGT. These rockers deliver Dynamic Reels which can fill multiple reels as well as a free spins bonus feature with stacked symbols. Hope for an encore performance for even more freebies. Get a ticket to the show from between 20p and £400 per spin.
The Shamrockers are a strange looking bunch – expect big hair and even bigger beards. There are 4 of them in all – a fiddle player, drummer, guitarist and the lead singer who is the top payer, offering 500 coins for a 5 symbol combination.
The quartet can all appear as Dynamic Stacks and fill entire reels – look out for some nifty animations when this happens. The band are joined by lower value playing cards alongside a shamrock which is the wild and substitutes for everything apart from the bonus.
Land 3 or more of the bonus symbol (the ticket) to trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature – here you’ll be awarded double your total stake as well as 4 free spins. 1 Shamrocker will be designated as the Dynamic Stack on each free spin, starting with the lowest value member and finishing with the highest. Spin 1 is the fiddler, spin 2 is the drummer, spin 2 the guitarist and spin 4 the singer.
Hope to see the ticket symbol appear on reel 5 on the last of your free spins as it triggers an encore performance – you’ll be awarded 4 more free spins with the Dynamic Stacks playing in the same order as before. The encore is triggered around half the time. You can hit it multiple times too with up to 240 free spins theoretically possible!
Shamrockers is a very volatile slot – for much of the time the band will deliver a series of duds but get lucky with the Dynamic Stacks or hit the free spins feature and smash hit wins are certainly possible.
This strange little slot is well produced, featuring solid visuals and a rocking backing track. While not overloaded with features, the free spins round is a good one and can deliver some fine rewards if you’re lucky enough to land multiple Dynamic Stacks on a single spin.
It’s probably not one for the short of bankroll but if the band get in rhythm you can jam your way to a chart topping payout. If you like theme, Playtech’s Land of Gold is highly recommended.
