This slot has stuck to the original game’s theme and we can see rolling green hills, a rainbow and a pot of gold in the background. The symbols are familiar too, with the A to 10 royal suits making up the low value end of the paytable.
Also on the reels are a collection of gemstones in various colours. The most profitable is the clear gem, which awards 50 times the stake when 6 land in combination.
The game also features Cascading Wins, which means that any symbols that contribute to a win disappear and allow more symbols to drop from the top of the screen to take their place. The cascade continues until no more wins are recorded.
The Wild symbol takes the shape of the lucky horseshoe. It can substitute for all standard symbols but not for the Bonus, Super Gem or +1, +2 and +3 symbols.
Super Gem feature
This is activated when a Super Gem symbol appears on the horizontal reel at the top. All gem symbols on the reels at the time will be converted into a randomly chosen gem, potentially creating winning combinations.
Free spins are triggered by the Bonus pot symbol and players start off with 12 free spins when 4 Bonus symbols land. Each additional Bonus awards 5 extra spins so the player can start off with 22 spins.
Extra free spins are awarded when +1, +2 or +3 symbols appear in the horizontal reel. These top reel symbols cascade, making space for further wins. The feature also includes an Unlimited Win Multiplier, where each winning cascade bumps the multiplier factor up by x1, with no maximum limit.
Buy and Bonus Bank features
Barcrest has included some ingenious banking features in this slot. The Buy feature allows the player to directly access free spins by paying in 100 times the total stake. The Take A Chance feature allows the player to spin a wheel for a small fee, with the chance of winning at least 12 free spins.
Finally, the Bonus Bank feature allows players to ‘bank’ their wins, either totally or in part, so they can then access the free spins bonus at a cheaper rate. Players can choose to bank all their wins or only small wins in this way. They are also free to switch this feature off completely.
