Irish Eyes Slots

Irish-EyesIrish Eyes has a rather common theme, being related to the Irish people as you can probably guess. It’s created by NextGen Gaming and it’s actually one of two slots, so they ended up making a series based on this popular topic. Irish inspired games are plenty these days, so in case you don’t like this one you shouldn’t have a problem locating a better game with a similar theme.

The first slot of the series has 5 reels and 1 to 25 active lines. You also get from it a bonus game, a feature with free spins and multipliers, scatter symbols and a wild. The prizes are quite good, reaching $20,000.

Features of Irish Eyes

Given the nature of the theme, it shouldn’t be a surprise that a Leprechaun acts as the wild here, or that a Lady with green eyes is the scatter symbol. You are also offered free spins and tripled prizes.

If you look at the wild symbol, you will see a Leprechaun that is dressed in green and which is handing you a gold coin. He’s capable of awarding much more than that though, as it can create combinations with up to five wilds if they appear on an active line, giving away up to 10,000x the line wager. You also get it as a regular wild though, where it can substitute for other icons and by doing this it will create new combinations.

The Lady is a redhead with green eyes, a true Irish girl. This symbol behaves like a scatter, which means that it will offer you rewards just because you have enough of them present on the five reels. If you have at least two Lady icons you get paid a prize, from 2x to 100x the bet, and if you have 3+ you get free spins as well.

Free Games Feature

The game will reward you with access to the 12 free spins only if you have the required 3 or more scattered Lady icons. In this case, you also get a 3x multiplier for the 12 free spins. The downside is that the scatters need to appear from Left to Right, so it’s a limited feature that you’re working with here.


Pick Me Bonus

If a wild Leprechaun happens to appear on the 1st and 5th reels during the same spin, you will get this bonus game to activate. You choose one of the symbols, and it will reveal a prize to you. You can also get messages like Win All (you get all the payouts from all the symbols) or Pick Again (you get a second pick). The prizes go up to 100 times the bet.


Betting options and jackpots

The games from NextGen all seem to have the same betting requirements, though some allow you to modify the number of lines, while others don’t. The coins all go from $0.01 to $2 though, and you use one coin per line. With 25 lines here, you can bet up to $50.

Since the wild can offer you 10,000 coins, you can win $20,000 cash with its help, as long as the right wager size was used. The 3x multiplier of the free spins can take it up to $60,000.

Design and symbols

The game relies on poker cards as well, and they’re the majority on the paytable, so it doesn’t look Irish enough most of the time. However, the symbols that do have this theme look very good, and they are indeed inspired by the Irish. With pots of gold, four leaf clovers and leprechauns among the symbols, you get a game that is unmistakably Irish.


Symbols: Leprechaun (10,000 coins, wild), Redhead Girl (scatter, 100x total wager), Rainbow’s End (1,250 coins), Pot of Gold (500 coins), Clover (500 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (150 coins), Queen (125 coins), Jack (125 coins), Ten (100 coins) and Nine (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a very popular game, partly because of its theme, but also because it offers both good features and above average prizes.

Irish Eyes can be found at any NextGen casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
