Luck of the Irish
According to Irish folklore, a leprechaun is a mischievous little fairy who has hidden a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and who has the power to grant three wishes to whomever can capture it. Whether you choose to believe in such tall (or should that be short) tales or not, you can’t deny the charm of the iconic Irish mascot. In fact, if you like the Irish theme then you won’t be too disappointed with this slot machine, because its reels are filled with all sorts of symbolic (and lucky) icons from The Emerald Isle, such as golden harps, lucky horseshoes, four leafed clovers, iridescent rainbows, pots of gold, as well as a cheeky little leprechaun who might prove to be very rewarding if players happen to comes across him.
576 ways to win
One aspect of this slot machine’s design that will strike spinners is the fact that it has 5 reels of differing sizes with the first and fifth reels holding 3 icons, while the second, third and fourth reels have 4 icons each. What’s more, the slot machine doesn’t use any particular paylines and instead, players simply have the find matching identical images on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost going to the right. That makes for many potential ways to win, 576 ways in fact.
If your luck is in and you do manage to line up some matching icons upon consecutive reels, a multiplier will be applied to the “coin value” that can be chosen by toggling the (-) and (+) buttons in the lower left hand corner of the screen. The available coin sizes are 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 1 and 2, which will all be multiplied by 40x to calculate the total bet.
A bit of bonus action
As the legends say, if you catch a leprechaun then you will be granted with three wishes. Well, you won’t quite get any wishes, but if you happen to find three leprechaun symbols on the middle three reels of this slot machine then you will be granted a set of “unlimited” free spins. We say “unlimited” – or, rather Playtech say that – because players will have to spin a wheel to determine how many free games are awarded while also racking up multiplier for wins of up to 3x the normal prize value. This wheel can be spun indefinitely until the player lands on one of two “collect” segments.
Other special elements to the gameplay of Land of Gold include the “Stacks of Luck” feature, which will offer random prizes worth between 5x and 25x the spinner’s total bet when the middle three reels are stacked full of the same matching icons. Plus, players can activate a “Golden Coins” bonus side game by finding to toadstool icons on the first and fifth reels. This game asks players to make their leprechaun friend jump for golden coins and shamrock clovers for special prizes until he hits the unlucky crow symbol.
