Another Irish themed slot from Blueprint Gaming, Irish Frenzy has taken the best features of the genre and spun them into something truly distinctive. If you’ve played many slots games before, you’ll probably recognise the format and style of Irish themed slots – leprechauns, lush green meadows, pots of gold. It’s all a bit tongue in cheek, but it’s always a good option for players who are looking for a slots game with big money on the line. Irish themed slots tend to be high paying, both in their base game and bonus features, and on that front, Irish Frenzy certainly doesn’t disappoint.
The game is set out across 5 reels, very much the norm for online slots and Irish slots in particular. From a visual standpoint, this is a pretty straightforward game, without too many of the bells and whistles you get in some other games. The symbols are all themed around common Irish icons, so you can expect to see pots of gold, harps, pints of the black stuff and much, much more. Alongside the Irish themed symbols, you’ll also find lower paying symbols, represented by the A-10 high cards.
The aim of the game, as with most online slots, is to line up matching symbols on three or more reel positions. Land these from left to right on any of the game’s 20 paylines and you’re in line for a match bonus – a multiple paid on the size of your stake, based on the value of your combination. There’s also the ability to trigger free spins as part of the game’s bonus features, which we’ll look at in more detail when discussing the feature symbols.
This is a medium to high variance slot, which means it can be pretty volatile in terms of payouts. While on some spins you’ll fall short of a paid win, on others you can win big, so there really is no telling how fast and hard the game will pay out. But when the wins start flowing, they can be substantial. Betting gets underway from just 10p per spin, ranging right up to £100 at the top end for higher rollers. The jackpot comes in at a huge 5,000x, which is big for this kind of slot. Obviously the bigger your bet, the bigger your potential wins will be.
RTP is strong, ranging beyond the threshold 95.00% mark to 96.12%. This puts it firmly in the top tier of high paying slots, which combined with the variance and jackpot potential means this can be a big money game in the right hands. All you need is the luck of the Irish and you’ll be on your way to a winner.
The leprechaun is the wild symbol – could it be anything else?! Landing these anywhere on the board has the effect of being a substitute symbol for anything else you’re missing. So if this falls at the end of a payline, it will extend your combination win by one position. Or, if you have matching symbols adjacent to it, this will make your combination which otherwise would not stand. There’s also the added advantage here of a wild bonus, which pays out when you land anywhere upwards of 2 of these symbols on a single spin. This ranges up to 500x your stake in the case of five wilds, so this is a great feature to bear in mind.
Arguably the most important of the feature symbols is the scatter, which triggers the bonus round on landing three or more. Note that the wild only appears during the free spins bonus feature.
Bonuses and Jackpots
The main bonus feature is a free spins round, where you can win up to 20 free spins. During this feature, the wilds become active, and they start to collect the amounts of money shown in the pots of gold on your reels. This adds up over the duration of the round and is combined with any individual spin wins to give you a total feature win from the round.
It’s also possible to buy your way into this feature, for the sum of 70x your stake. There’s no guarantee this will definitely be a profitable decision, but it is good to have this feature in pocket in case you get fed up waiting to trigger it with scatters.
During this round you’ll get access to some of the biggest wins the game has to offer, including the wild bonus pays of up to 500x. The main jackpot stands at 5,000x.
