Golden Shamrock Slots

Golden-ShamrockGolden Shamrock is a Net Entertainment Irish themed slot. It’s not the only Irish themed slot you will find out there, dozens have been made already, but this one does slightly better than the average thanks to the hard work of the developers from Net Ent. What these guys do better than most of the competition is the graphics part, where they can do just as well or better than anyone else. The Irish theme in this case means having lots of shamrocks, pots of gold, leprechauns, beer, accordions and pipes, all things that you will find in Ireland folklore in one form or another.

A slot with 5 reels & 20 bet lines, Golden Shamrock includes on them symbols with scatter or wild abilities, plus the option to get free spins and multipliers from the former. Its best prizes will reward your efforts with up to $20,000.

Features of Golden Shamrock

The design remains the biggest attraction of the game, but some of the features contribute as well, especially the expanding wild. Others include the scatter, free spins and multipliers of up to 5x.

The Leprechaun’s role in Golden Shamrock is related to the substitution power it carries, making it a wild symbol. With the exception of the scatter, the wild can take the place of any other symbol. When it appears on one of the three reels from the middle, the wild expands and the entire reel it is covered, as long as that translates into a winning line being formed.


Free Games Feature

The scatter symbol is present as well, but it doesn’t give prizes directly, the way it does in other slots. Instead, the Golden Shamrock symbol that has this role will activate the free spins. 3+ Golden Shamrocks in scattered positions will get you these free games and they will each have a multiplier between 1x and 5x, so prizes can be a lot more profitable than in the base game.

Betting options and jackpots

If you can afford it, the game allows for bets to reach $100, with a $5 line bet used. Each line bet uses 1 to 10 coins, but you are not obligated to activate all the lines. Coins have a minimum denomination of only $0.01, while the highest one is at $0.50.

Best case scenario, getting the top combo while using the largest bet will result in a 40,000 coins jackpot being awarded to you. It’s worth up to $20,000.

Design and symbols

The surrounding design is made out from the branches and vines that are on the two trees that serve as guards on both sides of the reels. There are all sorts of Celtic inspired graphics here, with wonderful decorations framing the reels area. The reels have vines as borders and as a background the blue sky with some lazy clouds sprinkled around. This makes the symbols look like they’re hanging in mid air. The quality is visible in every part of the design and it shows that they didn’t rush through it.

Symbols: Leprechaun (wild), Golden Shamrock (scatter), Pot of Gold (4,000x), Gold Horseshoe (2,000x), Gold Harp (1,500x), Leprechaun Hat (1,000x), Leprechaun Pipe (150x), Mugs of Beer (125x), Accordion (100x), Ace (75x), King (50x) and Queen (30x).


Is It Worth Playing?

I wouldn’t say this is a great slot machine, but it has its strong points. If you’re a bit superstitious, nothing beats a theme about lucky items and Irish legends. However, keep in mind that this developer has quite a few titles that surpass this one by miles.

The Golden Shamrock slot machine is offered through the Net Entertainment platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
