Irish-themed slots offer such rich pickings. It’s no wonder that every major online slot developer has at least one such title in its development catalogue. At the very least, these slots must be a whole lot of fun to produce. In Slots O’ Gold, Blueprint Gaming is turning its own slick development nouse down this well-trodden yet ever-popular and exciting rainbow. BPG has done all this to deliver us a five reel, 10 pay-line slot. One that pays both ways and links in to Blueprint’s Jackpot King progressive jackpot offering.
Think Ireland, think green. It’s not exactly a stretch to see why Blueprint’s game design is heavy on the green hues. Nevertheless the greenery is delivered in a hazy, wispy, magical style that completely reaffirms our belief in leprechauns chasing pots of gold over rainbows. Let’s face it, as long as he shares them with us we’re prepared to believe in anything.
And where would an Irish-themed slot be without any music? The fiddly ditties that greet us when we launch Slots O’ Gold’s intro give way to a comfortable in-game silence. This is broken nicely by a whimsical lilt when we spin our reels in search of winning combinations. As we said in our intro above, Slots O’ Gold‘s 10 pay-lines pay both ways, always a rewarding feature to ensure we don’t miss out on winning combos, formed by the stacked symbols on offer here. The symbols are quintessentially Irish. Clovers, Pipes, Guinness, Top Hats, Toadstools, Horseshoes, Harps and glimmering pots of Gold (or pots o’ Gold, if we want to stay on message).
The Slots O’ Gold online slot is part of Blueprint Gaming’s Jackpot King progressive jackpot pool of games. Collecting Crown symbols as the reels spin is our ticket to any potential progressive haul, as the more Crowns we land awards a bigger total bet multiplier. We will then pick from the King’s Treasure to increase our prize before spinning the Wheel King to shoot at a grand total multiplier and a chance at the progressive jackpot.
Meanwhile, Slots O’ Gold does offer two in-game bonuses separate from the progressive jackpot to prove that there is plenty here to twist our knickers. Should we land the Wild Leprechaun on reels 2, 3 or 4 we trigger the Rainbow Re-spins bonus feature, which sees our grinning leprechaun friend turn the whole reel(s) Wild for a re-spin, with additional re-spins added if we land additional Wild Leprechauns. If we land stacked Rainbow Gold symbols anywhere across the reels, that stack transforms into a stack of random symbols. A combination of the two together has the potential to send us tripping over the rainbow and into bonus dreamland.
With stacked symbols and two-in game bonus features that underscore Slots O’ Gold Irish theme brilliantly, there is plenty deadly action to make this one heck of a playable online slot. Add in the potential for huge progressive wins and we are knocking heavily on the leprechaun’s door, all covered in rainbow glitter.
