Irish Eyes

Published: 12/03/2013

Games with a Celtic theme are always in vogue. There’s something about the Emerald Isle that grabs the imagine of slot players, whether it’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the luck of a four-leaf clover or a leprechaun that can grant magic wishes. In the case of “Irish Eyes” slots from WagerWorks-IGT, the attraction is a smiling red-headed lass who knows exactly how to please a player—with cash and free spins.

Irish Eyes features a 5-reel, 25-payline format. To begin a game, the number of active paylines from 1 to 25 must be specified by using the +/- toggles below the second reel next to the “Lines” indicator. Alternatively, the line numbers that flank the first and fifth reels can be clicked on to choose a number of lines, or the “Max” button below reel three can be used to set the number of lines at 25.

Next, the amount of the line bet must be set from €0.02 to €5.00, again using +/- toggles below the fourth reel. Under the third reel is a “Max” button for setting the line bet at €5, which with 25 lines in play makes the maximum total wager €125.

The basic reel symbols on Irish Eyes are the standard cards, Nines through Aces. They pay line multipliers from 5X to 150X whenever three or more are matched on an active payline. Higher awards are paid for catching two or more Shamrocks or Pots of Gold, from 3X to 500X. Only two or more of the Rainbow Path symbols are needed to win a payout of 6X to 1250X.

The Leprechaun is wild in Irish Eyes. It substitutes for all other symbols except the Scattered Lady. For catching 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 Leprechauns in a row the payout is 2X, 10X, 150X, 1000X or 10000X, respectively. The Scattered Lady is worth a multiplier of the entire wager at levels of 2X, 5X, 20X and 100X whenever 2, 3, 4 or 5 appear in any positions on the reels from left to right.

There are two special bonus features on Irish Eyes. The “Pick Me Bonus” is triggered whenever Leprechauns appear on the first and fifth reels in any position. The rest of the symbols on the screen go dark, and “Pick Me” signs appear on the two Leprechauns. Selecting either Leprechaun will reveal a prize, usually cash. However, some prizes come with a “Pick Again” bonus and one comes with a “Win All” extra bonuses reward.

The second bonus feature is called the Free Games Bonus. It is activated when three or more of the Scattered Lady symbol appear on the reels from left to right. In such cases, a dozen free spins are awarded with tripled payouts for all winning combinations. It is also possible to trigger the Pick Me Bonus while in the Free Games mode and the feature can be retriggered indefinitely.

The graphics of Irish Eyes are uplifting and fanciful, including a brightly coloured rainbow and shamrocks falling from the sky plus pink flowers growing in a lush green landscape in the frame around the reels. All of the symbols animate to some degree when they appear in winning combinations. Most of them simply enlarge, but the Scattered Lady smiles and winks, while the Leprechaun flashes a gold coin. Also, a lively little jig plays on a fiddle when wins involving the Leprechaun occur. For truly big wins during the bonus rounds, a shower of coins may appear to signal the high prize value.
