Sequels seem to be all the rage everywhere nowadays, and this is proving to be the case in the world of video slots too, with Irish Eyes 2 being a successor to the popular Irish Eyes slot game by Nextgen Gaming. As expected, this game is all about the luck of the Irish, and you can hopefully benefit from this as well with some healthy and handsome rewards to be won.
There is a beautiful, and presumably Irish countryside, that forms the backdrop for this game. Bright sunshine and green fields and trees add to the ambience, with a rainbow as well, perhaps with a pot of gold at its end. The music is quite entertaining as well, and all of this combines to create a fantastic atmosphere for the game.
The typical Irish icons, such as four leaf clovers, the leprechaun’s pipe, big green hats and golden heart-shaped rings all show up on the reels, while the playing card symbols from ace to nine are also leprechaun themed. A red haired woman is the game’s Wild symbol, while a pot of gold is the scatter.
This is a five reel game with 25 paylines. The golden ring is the most valuable of the regular icons on the reels, paying out a maximum of 1,500 coins if you land five on a payline. However, landing the Wild pays out every time – if you land one, you get just one coin, right up to landing five, where you receive a whopping 5,000 coins. The Wild substitutes for all other symbols other than the Scatter as well. The other symbols can be pretty valuable too – the four-leaf clovers and leprechaun pipes can payout up to 400 coins and the hats have a maximum payout of 750 coins.
The Scatter provides rewards as well, from 2x to 100x of your total stake, depending on how many you land, while the Scatter can also trigger the free spins round.
Landing three or more of the Scatters will activate the free spins round. Here, you receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins, for three, four or five of the Scatters, respectively. Additionally, all wins during this round will have multipliers applied as well, which again depend on the number of Scatters you landed. Three Scatters will provide a 4x multiplier, four will have a 15x multiplier and five will give you a huge 100x multiplier. This round can be retriggered as well, leading to some truly outstanding wins.
Players can bet from €/£/$0.25 up to €/£/$125 per spin, while it has an RTP of 95.04%.
This is a lovely game, especially in terms of the visuals, but also since it has an exciting theme that really adds to Las Vegas Casino gameplay. The various bonuses make it possible to pick up big wins, but even the base game can be pretty rewarding if your luck is in, in keeping with the theme.
