In the month of March, Irish themed online slot games start drawing high traffic at online casinos. This is because March 17 is celebrated as St Patrick’s Day, the patron saint of Ireland. Online casino players connect this with Irish luck and switch to Irish themed slot machines from their other favorites. All leading online casino software providers have at least one Irish themed slot game in their portfolios. This article picks out the best of these video slots from the portfolios of each of the leading software providers.

New Irish themed online slot games are usually launched in March, but Playtech released one a few months back this time. It is titled Plenty O’ Riches. The introductory clip shows a leprechaun making a wish in a well and gold coins spurt out. The symbols offering line payouts include the wild rainbow, the Plenty O’ Fortune logo and high value card symbols from A to 10 crafted in shamrock green. The jackpot line payout is 500 coins. These parameters do appear unattractive, but are made up for by three lucrative bonus games. Three leprechaun symbols in reels 2, 3 and 4 trigger 12 free spins. In the free spins, bronze, silver and gold coins are added to the reels and these award bonus prizes. The Wishing Well bonus is triggered when three wishing wells appear scattered on the reels. Each well spews coins, which are collected by a leprechaun and converted to bonus credits. The End of the Rainbow bonus is appropriately triggered by pots of gold symbols. Players can choose up to six pots and each will award increasing bonuses. However if the player gets a collect sign then the bonus game will end.

The software provider Microgaming offers some Irish themed online slot games, the latest of which is Irish Eyes. The leprechaun is obviously the wild symbol and showers gold in the win animation. It also awards the highest line payout of 10,000 coins. The leprechaun pays out from 1 to 5 symbols aligned from left to right on active paylines. The Irish girl awards scatter payouts when two or more appear from left to right on any spots on the reels. The other thematic symbols are rainbow, pot of gold and four leaf clover. There are two bonus features in Irish Eyes. Three Irish girl symbols trigger 12 free spins in which all payouts are tripled. The free spins can be retriggered. When the leprechaun appears simultaneously on reels 1 and 5, the player picks one of them to receive bonus credits.

Lucky Last is the Irish themed slot game from the software provider Realtime Gaming. Again the symbols are taken from the leprechaun folklore and include the leprechaun, his pipe, his shoes, rainbow, pot of gold, toadstool and horseshoe. The gold coin is the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 1 and 5, but appears stacked and doubles payouts. When the gold coins appear on both these reels at the same time, the Lucky Last Feature is triggered. Players are awarded 7 free spins. The payouts are tripled in the first six spins and are doubled in the seventh spin. However, the seventh spin can randomly retrigger this feature. Lucky Last offers two randomly triggered progressive jackpots as well.
