Land of Gold Slot
Land of Gold is a 5-reel, fixed 576-pay line online slot from Playtech. If there was one thing the world of online slots was crying out for, it's another 'Lucky Irish' themed slot. Playtech need to be applauded for coming up with this unique concept. I mean, the only other 'Lucky Irish' themed online slots we can think of are Luck o' the Irish, Irish Luck, Irish Eyes, Irish Eyes 2, Lucky Leprechaun, Leprechaun's Luck, Irish Gold, Rainbow Riches, Leprechaun's Fortune, My Lucky Leprechaun, Leprechaun vs Batman vs Superman … well, okay, so we made the last one up but you get the picture. We hadn't even looked at this slot before we deduced it would contain rainbows and pots of gold. Oh, and a Leprechaun, and a four-leaf clover, and maybe a pint of guiness …
So the symbols in this game are a golden harp, a golden horseshoe, a four-leaf clover (check), a rainbow (check), a pot of gold (check) and a leprechaun (check). Also making an appearance are playing card symbols nine to ace. The reels are slightly unusual in this game, in that the first and fifth reels are three rows high, while the middle three rows are four rows high. This is an 'all ways pay' slot, so that's 576 possible pay lines in total. All are in play at all times, and you pay forty coins for each spin, so your wager is forty times your coin size. When you're ready to go to the end of the rainbow, hit the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest prize-givers in this game are three nines or tens, which wins you five times your bet-per-line. The jackpot in normal play is won by landing five pots of gold. This will win you 1,500x your line bet.
The 'Land of Gold' logo acts as the wild symbol in this game. It substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter and the bonus symbols.
A toadstool is the bonus symbol here. It appears on reels one and five, and if it appears on both at the same time then the 'Golden Coins' bonus is triggered, giving you a chance to win the 'Clover Jackpot'. During this game you must pull and release the mushroom and make the leprechaun jump and grab coins. If you hit the crow while jumping, the bonus ends. If you collect three lucky clovers in a row, then you win the progressive clover jackpot.
The inevitable leprechaun acts as the scatter symbol. If it appears simultaneously on reels two, three and four it triggers the 'Lucky Spins Free Games'. You get to spin a rainbow-coloured wheel which contains additional free spins and multipliers. You can keep spinning the wheel, collecting free spins and multipliers until you hit 'collect', at which point you play out your free spins with the total multiplier collected.
All symbols are stacked in fours on the central reels. If you manage to cover the entirety of the central reels with the same symbol, then you win a cash multiplier between 5x and 25x your total bet.
This 'Lucky Irish' themed slot from Playtech is very similar to the one hundred and one (okay, so we might be exaggerating) 'Lucky Irish' themed slots out there in online casino land. If you like such slots, then you're obviously going to be having a ball. If not, then move along, nothing to see here!
