Everybody loves an Irish-inspired slot, that’s why there are so many of them. From the original Rainbow Riches to Irish Eyes (and it’s slot sequel Irish Eyes 2), there’s just something about leprechauns that make their slots so alluring. Book of the Irish is another slot that delivers Celtic magic. From pots of gold to jaunty music and the chance to take on the green imp with a gamble feature, the Book of the Irish is a slot you’ll want to read. Or… er… play.

How to Play
Be prepared for green landscapes, leprechauns and panpipes playing in the background. Because that’s what you get when you first fire up this slot. And, let’s face it, great themes and settings are what we hope for when we play online slots be they Irish-themed or otherwise. The title of the game sits atop the reelcase while the main buttons all appear on the right. And what big buttons they are! There’s no missing the spin button, it’s the massive one in the centre. Simply click or tap it to begin spinning. If you hold on it you can select autoplay and choose how many spins you want to set. Below is the settings button which lets you check the game info, such as symbol payouts, paylines and bonus features, along with game history and the toggles for sound and turbo play (great if you like furiously fast slots play). The button at the top lets you turn the Gamble feature on or off. You can select it before each spin, giving you the opportunity to gamble your wins for more spins or bigger payouts. When you do land a win, you’ll see your prize at the top of the screen, signalling how much is going in to your account.
Surely you’re expecting a Leprechaun as a main symbol? And you’d be right, it appears as one of the high paying ones. As do Mushrooms, Leprechaun Shoes, Pots of Gold and the lower paying royals, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. The Book (the Book of the Irish, get it?) is the Wild and substitutes for other symbols to create winning combinations. The only time it won’t work as a Wild is during Free Spins – it won’t substitute the expanding symbol.
There are two bonuses to enjoy on Book of the Irish.
